If you are here for the 100 Cartridge Blog Hop, hosted my My Cricut Craft Room! Welcome!!! You should have been sent to my page by the fabulous and talented Tracy's Blog. If you didn't, please see the blog line up at the bottom of this page and start from the beginning. There are TWO days and over 100 cartridges featured! You won't want to miss a thing!
Now! On to my project. I am really proud of this, for two reasons - it was hard. AND it was the first time I had "designed" a book. I used Cricut Craft Room to weld words and blocks together to make different length pages, then sized the layered words to fit. I used the Cars cartridge for this project, and I have a few pointers for working with this:
- The designers who made this cartridge were brilliant. The characters really come to life as you piece them together. Save yourself the step of cutting out pieces in black and simply use a black background. Use a pen to mark in extra spaces if needed.
- The larger the cuts the better, mine were cut at 2.5 inches (Mater was cut at 4.5) and I did not find the pieces too small to work with, but I could see how some could.
- Use chalk and glitter glue for small pieces instead of cutting them out.
- avoid using thick "premium" paper. I actually found that my cheapest, thinnest card stock cut the best for these itty bitty pieces!
- Have PATIENCE!
Well that's all for me today : ) Your next stop on the hop today is with the amazing Shelly http://kccroppers.blogspot.com
