Here’s a brand new kit for the week! I’ve got loads of ideas for this one! I’m planning on using that big year collage on a graduation page for Kassidy. I wanted to have it done today, but alas, it probably won’t happen until Friday. Doing our annual girls camping trip this week. I’ll be in and out (it’s close by), so the turn around on orders might take a smidgen longer than usual. But things should be back to normal Thursday afternoon.
I’m actually wanting to create my page with my Cricut . . . make it big and all, but I’m having some issues getting the computer and the Cricut to play nice. I bought Make The Cut over the weekend and my first impression is that I like it. I like that it has a similar look and feel to the Adobe programs . . . a familiar site for me. I’m planning on sharing my findings . . . as soon as I can get the two machines to play nicely, that is.
A couple of notes.
- The month names in the kit may seem rather simple and easy to duplicate, however, not only have they have been combined nicely to be one piece, but they work well with other pieces of the kit (see below).
- Because the subject matter was pretty much all the same, there are only a total TWO cut files (GSD/SVG/DXF). However, each item is its own PNG/JPG file so you can use them individually. (Cool embellie on a photo!)
- There is a separate cut piece for the “stacked” twenty ten. Again, I like variation in color from time to time . . . it’s there if you like different color, but you don’t have to use it.
So since I couldn’t get to the page today, here’s a few ways on how you can incorporate pieces together. A great way to add a date to your page—incorporate some design and all. You know me and text . . . gotta “say” things with some flair. ;)
This works great for a “year in review” or month-by-month scenario too!
