Happy Father's Day
We are Celebrating with You

Happy Father's Day to all of our dads out there! It's no secret, most of our scrap bookers and die cut machine users are women, but not all. We hear from men who make signs to advertise their businesses and decorate their classrooms, cut decals for life size or model cars, and design for entertainment venues.

Whether you're a man who is into cutting machines or not, we pay tribute to you and your day. Thanks for giving of yourself to young - and not so young - children.

"When I was a boy of fourteen, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around.  But when I got to be twenty-one, I was astonished at how much he had learned in seven years.  "

Crafting Tip of the Day Tip
Using Pictures as Font

Give your scrapbook layout a unique style while you add to the theme. Instead of cutting from just cardstock, use your cartridges or dies to cut photos. A child's face can be a flower center, petals and all. Use the shadow feature to silhouette the same shape with a complementing color or pattern. 

Below are pages from a summer scrapbook - where the words Beautiful Sunrise were cut with a Cricut font cartridge from the sunrise photo. It's a perfect match for the surrounding photos.
