Good morning! It’s time for another challenge on the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog and the theme this week is “Oh Baby” – create something for a new baby. Well, my project, at first glance, doesn’t really look like it’s for a baby – no pastels, baby booties, stroller, etc. but it really is for a new baby! I created this for my new grandson, Charles! (Such a BIG name for such a little baby! LOL) And he is new – in fact, today he is exactly 4 months old! So this is what I made for his room -
It’s a framed split letter monogram with his name in the middle! I should have take a better photo because I don’t think that you can tell by this one that the vinyl is just on the glass and there is no back to the frame. I did it in a “big boy” color and frame so he could keep it in his room for several years.
I learned how to do this during NSD this month over on the Cricut message board. Our wonderful and talented Narelle did a tutorial on her blog. So please visit her blog here – The Non-Crafty Crafter – to learn exactly how to make this with your Cricut. Narelle did an excellent job of explaining how to do this and she even has a video! (Thanks, Narelle!) You’ll only need to use the Cricut Craft Room and the alphabet cartridge of your choice! I used the Plantin Schoolbook cart to recreate my Split Letter Monogram! But the possibilities are endless depending on your font and design. It’s very easy to do, too!
While I had my vinyl out, I continued to create a couple more projects with it – another gift for baby Charles and something for Memorial Day. I’ll post those this week so please stop by again!
Thanks for visiting and until next time, Happy Crafting!
