Welcome to Jilliene Designing and the 4th of July Fantabulous Cricut Crawl - a Cricuty version of a Blog Hop!! If you've come from Jackie at Luv2scrappp, you're in the right place!
In honor of Independence Day each Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog Design Team member has created a project using Red, White and Blue (and at least one Cricut cut.) Visit each Design Team member's blog for a chance to win all sorts of goodies! Yay! for giveaways! There is a Grand Prize for one lucky winner who submits their own "Red White and Blue" project at FCCB!
For my red white and blue project, I decided to use the Cricut cartridge "Word Collage".
I bought this cartridge a few years ago thinking that I would use the negative cuts for cards and scrapbook layouts. The first time I used it was for a baby layout. In order to fit the negative cut and a couple photos onto a 12 x 12" sheet of paper, I had to cut the collage pretty small. I set the size to 4". Well, try as I might, anything under 6" ripped, tore or shredded my paper. I changed my blade. I adjusted the pressure, speed and blade depth about a gazillion times but I still couldn't get a clean cut, so I put the cartridge away and didn't give it a second thought, until last week.
I really liked the layout for the 4th of July word collage and I had the perfect paper for it. I used the red, white and blue sheet from the Danny O collection. Thank goodness I had multiple sheets of that design because this project wasn't as easy as I thought it would be and I had already expected some trouble. I will be posting an article later this week with a lot of useful information about working with Word Collage and a cartridge table of contents PDF for download.
