Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
Over the next several posts I want to share with you my 'routine' for adding a new stamps set to my collection, which can also be cut out with the Close To My Heart Cricut Cartridge Art Philosophy.
When Close To My Heart produces a stamp set that may include images that can be cut with their Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge, they make a notation on the stamp carrying sheet (plastic the stamps come stuck too) regarding the size to cut the shape in order to match the stamped image...
When I got my Art Philosophy Cartridge I sat down with the handbook and did some numbering of the pages...when you look at a cartridge overlay (white buttons only) you will see each overlay has 5 rows across and 10 buttons on each row...
It may take several minutes to do this but it is worth the effort because in the future when you are flipping through your book and find a shape you want to cut, you can quickly head to the correct button without having to study the entire overlay to find out which button will cut the shape you want. I love speed and ease of use!! BTW, the words inside the < > pointy brackets, under the shape is exactly what you should see on your Cricut Screen (Personal bug, Expression or Cricut Create), to ensure you have entered the right button. The Expression 2 and the Imagine show the picture instead of words like <Oval1>.
If you have any questions please feel free to post them in a comment below or email me at email@example.com
My next post will explain the next step, adding some markings to that plastic, stamp carrying sheet with a Fine Tip Sharpie Pen which will allow you to make quick work of your next project!
Have a SCRAPtastic day!
