Yep, I’m a big old nerd, not that this is a surprise! My first word cut with my Cricut Expressions? Why Cricut!, of course! There’s an exclamation point, too, but it wouldn’t fit on the machine when I set up this shot. This is the Plantin Shadow font , one of two cartridges that came with the product.
I still need to get the hang of knowing what speed and pressure to use with various types of paper. My first test page was on plain copy paper and tore. My second cut was on cheap cardstock and it didn’t quite cut all the way through, so I had to clean up the edges of the letters with scissors. This third try, though, worked like a charm.
The picture’s lousy since it was taken in low light with a camera phone. But that just adds to the nerdy essence. 😉
