It was inspired by a beautiful journal cover made by Judi Riesch in Lynne Perrella's book "al-pha-bet-i-ca". (Thanks to Dyan Reaveley from Art From the Heart for recommending the book - it's full of some great inspiration!)
Judi made her cover using lots of brass letter stencils. I didn't have any, and wasn't inclined to go out and buy them, so, of course I turned to my trusty Cricut! All of the pieces cut from 2 sheets of A4 or 8.5x11 cardstock - 1 for the stencils and 1 (in blackout mode) to cut the tiles for the bottom layer.
I've created mine by stamping and colouring with promarkers and Distress Inks, but you could just as easily make one using patterened papers and cardstock! Here is a clearer view of how all the pieces fit together once they've been cut:
There are 2 files, on at A4 size and one at 8.5x11, ready to be cut on your Cricut or Craft Robo.
Please remember you are only allowed to download this file for your own use and may not distribute it to others in any form. I spend a great deal of time creating my designs, please respect the terms under which they are given.
Again, this template will be "live" for 1 week. Next week it will be taken down, and new ones will replace it. Don't forget, if you have any requests, pass them on! I can't promise, but I will take suggestions into account when planning future templates.
These files may not be uploaded to a group, forum or website for sale or redistribution, or shared among individuals. They are expressly for the personal use of each person that downloads them from this blog.
There are 3 files and I have put them into a zip file to make downloading easier. After saving it, open in the usual way, and drag the files out onto your desktop or wherever you wish to save them.
There are 2 versions of each template:
- An SVG version which can be imported into the Sure Cuts a Lot or Make the Cut program and then cut out on your Cricut.
- A DXF version which is Craft Robo friendly, and ready to be imported into your Robomaster software (I'm not a Robo user, so if there are any problems with this, please let me know!)
Any feedback on the templates is more than welcome, and if you have any suggestions for possible future templates you'd like to see, please let me know! If you make anything using one of the templates, please post a link to it here so that others can be inspired by how you've used them!
I hope you like the templates - let me know how you get on! :)
