Well I made it through my Yudu demo today! The Yudu, for those who are not demos or are not Cricut-crazy like the rest of us, is a print screening machine made by Provo Craft. It will print on just about anything. I was so nervous about it because I had never even touched the thing much less use it. So I went in early and started to play. And the more I used it, the more comfortable I got. It is a very easy machine to use once you get started. I got so comfortable that I decided to burn my own image onto a screen to be printed. Of course it had to be something to do with scrapbooking! So I made this design with my Design Studio and my Expression and used it to burn the image onto the screen. I was so surprised that it actually came out! It's amazing to see something that you created out of paper now being screen printed in ink onto t-shirts and canvas bags. Here it is on a fabric napkin:
The Cricut cartridges that I used were Storybook and Wall Decor and More. Everything is welded together using DS. (My cut image is on the right and the screen print in on the left)
Even the Michaels employees got involved today. After they saw how cool this was, they all wanted t-shirts printed too. Here is Natalie with her new t-shirt:
This is one of the preprinted designs that you can buy for the Yudu.
Cool looking tree! I just had to make one for my daughter and me. I mixed the black ink in the middle with a teal ink on each side. And here is what the Yudu looks like:
May look complicated but not at all! I could have gone on screen printing all night. That is if I hadn't had to stop to go clean up the big water puddle in the classroom that I caused! Again, another story for another time :-)! Before I left the store I got a few supplies so I could try something new this week (new to me anyway!). I'll post photos when I finish.
I have so much to share about the last couple of months from my Chicago training til now and I'll post as often as I can to catch up. Until next time, Happy cutting and crafting!
