Quick Tip Tuesday

Welcome to Quick Tip Tuesday! Here is a tip I found from Psycho Moms Scrapbooks!

Cutting Photos with your Cricut

Do you have photos that offer something to your layouts, but not necessarially a center stage photo? Like perhaps the water from a swimming pool, or photo of the sand on a beach, a group of flowers. Use these photos for cool titles on your scrapbook pages.
Use a fairly bold or wide font for best results (Base Camp is my favorite). Settings should be: blade pressure to 5, Speed to 2, Pressure dial to 6. Simple one word titles are the best for this project. Line your photo up with your cutting mat, type the word, and press cut. Instead of your design being cut onto paper, it will now be cut from your photographs. Although the software is not necessary, it does make it easier when trying to line up your word with the subject in the photo.
Here are some samples of what I mean. Remember that if it is a digital photo it isn't your only copy, so PLAY.
