Congratulations to this month’s random winner, Zeeone! Come back on March 7 for another great giveaway.

I just returned from Altitude Design Summit, where I met fabulous makers of all sorts: jewelry designers, sewing mavens, interior designers, fashion bloggers and so much more. In addition to great panels and conversations about blogging, photography and DIY, there were some pretty amazing decorations. Check out this dessert table by HGTV.com contributor Kim Stoegbauer of the The TomKat Studio:

Paper Backdrop from Cricut Lounge

I was also blown away by the paper decor at a garden-themed party, especially this butterfly-covered dress.  The cool thing? The decor for both of these spaces was cut using Cricut’s all-new Explore cutting machine, which lets you upload your own designs or try out their pre-designed templates.

So, what’s new about the Cricut Explore? The cutting machine features a dial that easily lets you switch between materials, from paper to iron-on sheets to fabric to cardstock.

    I would use it for so many things. My sister and I have a small business called Gypsy Lane where we refunk almost anything in to cool pieces of art, jewelry, home decor, etc… We have so much passion and it varies day to day according to "picks" that we come upon; ergo our name, Gypsy Lane!
