The Great Outdoors page layouts

Tonights class did The Great Outdoors page layout with Four Wheelers/ATV's, trees, a dome tent, a road sign. The title was cut using the Pooh Font cartridge and the Cricut markers. I am not sure what happened, but I was using DS and on my Expression the file would not cut past 1%. So I had to dig out my baby Cricut and I could only cut 6 titles at a time and then I used the Cricut markers to make them have the wood grain look to them...I think it really added to the page. I also used the George Cartridge for the shape behind the letters. The rest of my cutouts were done in SCAL. The dome tent, trees, and four wheeler.

Tonight we had another new Scrapbooker, welcome to our class, we hope we didn't scare you away :) We have a good class every week and lots of fun and laughter. If anyone would like to purchase any of our page layouts, I will be making them available, either at the store or I can mail them, just email me and I can make that happen for you. The cost for the pages will be around $7 per page plus shipping.

If you own a Cricut, here is an excellent software that allows you to cut
any True Type font with your machine, as well as many cliparts can now be
traced within the program turning them into an svg format, this feature alone
makes getting SCAL2 worth it as you will never need to purchase any carts.
There are thousands of files out there for you to download for free or for a
small fee that you can cut with your Cricut. I must say I use this software for
almost every layout I have done when using my Cricut. I actually use it more
than cartridges....don't tell Provo :)
