I am in LOVE with the Cricut Design Studio

I finally downloaded the trial version of the Cricut Design Studio! I created the following layout using it tonight. I used the George Font (only one in trial version), slanted the letters at 30 degrees, welded the letters together (totally awesome feature), and crammed as many flowers as I needed in the smallest amount of space possible. I save so much more paper this way. You can also go smaller than 1 inch. The normal contraints of the basic Cricut operations range from 1 inch to 5 1/2 inches, in 1/2 inch increments, very limiting. I MUST have this!!

I also used the new KI Memories Pop Culture Sheet, on top of a Bazzill Cardstock. I used a pink glaze pen, it gives an embossed look and adds dimension to the layout. I really need to get a photo corner punch, it is so tedious hand cutting these by hand! UGH, I just noticed my title is crooked-time to embrace imperfection!!

This is the left overs after I took out my letters and flowers, see how much I was able to cram into this little piece of paper?

That is such a cute lo! The Weld feature is super cool, and it is cool that you don't waste paper! I'm glad you figured out how to download it and you made a playlist too! Yeah! Thanks to you, I have over 400 fonts now! We have so much to learn from each other!

Um, since you asked about getting tagged, the only way I know to explain it is to tag YOU!!! Bwahahahaha!
So, now that you are tagged, you have to post seven random things about yourself and then go tag seven people to do the same.
Happy posting!!!
