Recipe Swap April 08
This is my first swap using my cricut. For those of you who are not familiar with swaps. You make a specific number (depending on the number of participants), then send those identical ones to the host. They will sort the recipes and send everyone the same amount. I made 15 of mine. I will get 15 recipes back including 1 of mine. Nice way to get new recipes and share your favorites. I used paper pups for most of the 8 x 8 page using the 12 x 12 mat. The dog was cut at 2 3/4". I cut a solid piece then cut the character. This created the outline. I did the same for the butterfly. Real dial off. The paws are 1 1/4" separated for the two corners. The solid paw was 2 1/4" and the word yum in the bone was 1". Settings: med speed, med pressure, 3 on blade. The words were cutting using design studio. Font is from planitin schoolbook size 1 1/2". I first put in the blue color marker and let it go. Then rest the page and cut using the blade. Settings: med speed, med pressure, 3 on blade. I can't wait to see what others did!
