Meet Your Host, Elena

The Cricut Joy is my favorite cutting machine and it can be yours too!

I’ve been a crafter my entire life and that’s a pretty long time – lol. In 2016, I started out my blog and YouTube channel (black sheep 303) making traditional-style cards with stamps, dies, inks, etc.

In 2021, after taking a break from blogging, I decided to start again but this time focusing on my new favorite thing – electronic cutting machines. I’ve been using them since 2010 and I’ve tried most of the major brands – Cricut, Silhouette and ScanNCut. But, the Cricut Joy took me by surprise.

Its small-but-mighty capabilities caused me to fall in love with it and I want you to do the same. I put this event together to showcase all that this cute little guy and his sibling, the Joy Xtra, can do. I bet there are things you had no idea you could make with the Joy and the Joy Xtra. This is the place to find out! Please join me and 28 other Joy-ful experts as we open up a world of Joy-ous possibilities!
