For the past couple days I've been bonding with my Cricut, and can I just tell you, I LOVE IT! When the Cricuts first came out, I really wasn't interested in them because I had already started making the transition from traditional to digital scrapbooking, and I didn't think I would use a Cricut enough to justify the expense.
Well stick my foot in my mouth again, but I love this thing and I can't see my life without it now. I probably never would have started even thinking about the Cricut if I hadn't stumbled upon Nannygoat's blog. Talk about inspiring. She made a Spring banner without a Cricut and she kept saying that making one of these with a Cricut would be a breeze and Cricut owners were lucky, and the seed was planted.
So, in short, it's Nannygoat's fault so I hope she's prepared to take full responsibility for this Cricut love of mine.
Would you believe that Nannygoat even gives a tutorial on making banners, and I still managed to screw it up?
Can you tell what I did wrong? I bet Nannygoat can.
I put my eyelets too close together so the banner hung all wonky. At first.
I am Queen at fixing screw-ups, since I make so many of them, so this is what I came up with.
I just took some little scraps of paper and covered every square millimeter with adhesive, then stuck them over the string real good so that it would hang just how I wanted it to.
Hey, I know my grammar stinks, but it worked. If you want to check out Nannygoat's tutorial, go here.
The Font Cartridge I used was Doodletype.
