Quick Tip Tuesday

It's Tuesday which means it is time for another super fantabulous quick tip and I cannot wait to share this one with you . . . genius is how I would describe this one!!

I recieved an email early this week from one of our fantabulous followers, Wendy Ramlakhan over at Whimsical Wendy and she has an incredible tip that I am thrilled to be able to share with you all. Check out Wendy's post about creating a template for making multiple cuts with your cricut and any sentiment you can dream up created in Word. This tip is super for making duplicate cards like invites, announcments, and Thank You's. Pretty darn clever I must say!!!

Here are Wendy's instructions:

"First, I had the Cricut cut the tag to fill an entire 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper. I just used regular copier paper to do this since this was going to just serve as a template, no need to waste precious cardstock. (Just set the Cricut to the lightest pressure.) The Cricut had cut the tag 4 across the page and 7 down. Now I knew how I needed to set up my Word document. Next, I opened a blank Word document with the margins ALL set to zero. I chose my font, and typed the sentiment. I started spacing the sentiments evenly in rows just like the Cricut template. (It took only about 4 test prints of the Word document before I had the spacing perfect, so it was really easy to do.) I knew it was perfect when I laid the cut out tag template over the printed sentiment sheet and it all lined up. When I had it all just right, I printed the sentiments out onto cardstock, placed that cardstock sheet into the Cricut and Ta-Da!!! Perfectly printed sentiment tags cut for me!!! Isn't that so cool? It really saved a lot of time."

Be sure to pop by and visit Wendy and leave her some lovin'!
