Print then Cut Cards

A while ago I purchased a disk from Crafter’s Companion that had a lot of graphics and papers that you could print off.  I love the cute, girly designs and I was excited to do something with them.

Fast forward to life getting in the way and a couple of months ago I finally got back to the disk.  Steve loaded it for me and we discussed how much ink the papers would take.  That was okay because I mostly wanted the designs.  So I printed some out and ended up having to cut them all out with my scissors.  And they were the wrong size for my cards! Ugh!!!

So then I got the idea to import them into my Cricut Design Space software.  That worked great: the perfect size, combining different elements. it was exactly what I wanted to do. The only hard part was that there was so many of them and each had multiple pieces. It was time consuming. But now that they are in I can use them over and over again!!  Yeah!!

Next issue is that card stock doesn’t go though my printer very well and yes the cost of ink again. The good news is that Cricut will cut them all out perfectly!! I love the print then cut feature!!!

Now just to find a printer that will handle the card stock better and that the ink isn’t too expensive! That sounds like a job for Steve!! Lol

Here’s the finished cards!

Thanks for stopping by my blog!
