We recently spent an entire weekend dusting off the old relic that is my Cricut. I bought this contraption in 2006 with all the hope and conviction of a newly rehabilitated procrastinator. I would use it, I promised. Then after tearing through a few reams of card stock, I was done. Finished. Bored.
Enter Christmas 2014, I was itching to make something…anything. I was sure that I could make something fantastic if only I had the right tools. I thought about the Cricut occasionally, but was left wanting. It was so limited. Then, I saw an amazing post on Pinterest. It detailed how I could turn any font into a design for Cricut. My mind was blown. The excitement was short lived when I learned about how Cricut had tried to put an end to this type of use (they prefer we spend a large fortune on over priced cartridges).So my genius husband and I found a work around. We modified the Cricut and now can do some pretty awesome crafts like these:
