Cricut Gypsy Graphically Speaking LO for 10/10/10



Using the Cricut/Gypsy i selected a square from Plantin Schoolbook, (8.71 x 7.48) I welded two number #10's to the side (word layer) (2.15 x 1.47) and one #10 to the corner (jumbled layer) (1.57 x 1.39) . I then added the border "10" strip (main base image) (8.95 2.29) to the bottom of the square and grouped all of the images together and then welded them using those function keys on the gypsy. For those of you that don't have a Gypsy, you can still cut out these pieces separately and attach them as shown.

Cricut Gyspy Winter Frolic Mini Album w/tags completed albums

Here are the finished albums and the inside pockets.



Monday, October 25, 2010

This is the sixth tag for the album. I will add tags as i make them for the album and then i will make the album.

What i do is weld a tag to a image using the gypsy...each tag is different for
each image. The image height for Wisemen #1 is 2.47 height and the tag is 2.55 x 3.39
and welded together it is 2.55 x 5.01. All of the layers for Wisemen #1 are cut
out at 2.47 height.

This is the seventh tag for the album. I will add tags as i make them for the album and then i will make the album.

What i do is weld a tag to a image using the gypsy...each tag is different for
each image. The image height for Wisemen #2 is 2.24 height and the tag is 3.13 x 2.50
and welded together it is 4.57 x 2.50. All of the layers for Wisemen #2 are cut
out at 2.24 height. The most challenging part are any small parts and in this image the stripes in the turban were the "hardest" ones to cut and be large enough to use. One solution would be to use a glaze marker to fill in the lines.

This is the eighth tag for the album. It is the last tag for the album and then i will make the album.

What i do is weld a tag to a image using the gypsy...each tag is different for
each image. The image height for Wisemen #3 is 2.31 height and the tag is 2.65 x 2.72
and welded together it is 4.45 x 2.72. All of the layers for Wisemen #3 are cut
out at 2.31 height. The most challenging part is the tiny circle for the treasure box, i used a gem instead of cutting it out.
