So in preparation, I am updating my Everyday Display. What is an Everyday Display you ask, it is this great display for your pages, memorabilia, etc. I have mine in the kitchen and it always has the latest pictures and notes on it. Everything is held on by magnets and clips – so it is always every changing.
My goal today is to learn how to use the Gypsy and create a awesome display. I will also be using two Disney cartridges. Wish me luck!!
My idea is to create a display that will eventually become the title page for our 2011 Disney Album.
So first thing to do is to create the title – Walt Disney World 2011. Here is where the Cricut Gypsy is cool. If you have just a Cricut you have to cut each letter individually, but with the Gypsy you can merge letters. At least that is what I have been told – so let’s see it I can do this.
Ok, first lesson learned… make sure you understand the dimensions you want. My first attempt made the title way to small. Second try was much better and the merge function for font is AWESOME!
I actually created the photo border from scratch! It was not one of the predetermined shapes.
I would have to say my afternoon project was a huge success. When we come back from Disney World we will hang our family portrait here and later this will be the first page in this year’s Disney album. I also learned what the Cricut can do and how much I still have to learn. Especially measuring first!!
