This card was made with my Cricut machine and SCAL using the dbWoodsy font from scrapNfont.com.  I LOVE these retro trees!  I’m testing a ton of these fonts for use with Cricuts and these Woodsy fonts have to be my FAV!

ScrapNFont has them on sale this week in a “doodlebats” extravaganza (a doodlebat is like a hand-drawn dingbat).  The prices are insane this month, you get $780 images for $18 with the coupon code “4birthday”–since it’s their birthday!  (Try comparing 480 images to a Cricut cartridge and let me know how that math works out.  I get nauseated just thinking about the price of a couple Cricut cartidges sometimes.) I’d pick up some great fonts and SCAL in a heartbeat, even if I had a few cartridges…they put out a lot of trendy fonts fast.

Don’t miss this sale at scrapNfonts if you want to try this with your Cricut..., the best sale I’ve seen over there. You know they must be good if I’m willing to pay for a font!  Just remember that you have to have SCAL for your Cricut to cut them out.  It’s like having the right punch for every image you cut out–when you first cut out the DB Woodsy font, they look like this–

Tools:  Cricut Markers (follow package directions), Cricut, SCAL, Prisma markers for coloring, chalks, watercolors. The background (grass, clouds, and sun) are water-painted with Loew Cornell Watercolors and LC Chalks.

I was a little hesitant to do this at first, afraid of messing up my Cricut, but now I’m switching it in and out all day long every day and it hasn’t affected the cutting at all.  It’s VERY easy.  The screw holding it in just swings out…the screw doesn’t really come all the way out at all.  You just swing out the arm, switch to marker or blade, and swing it back to tighten.

I used the “shadow/blackout” feature in SCAL to have it cut around the image like this.  Love the white border.  Superhandy for shapes too intricate to cut.  For intricate fonts I don’t want to get off my cutting matte, I may just let it color them and trim around them for some projects in the future!

(The birdie was at first yellow, I decided on red later!)

The font used above ($3.00–  DB Woodsy.  I also have DB Trees ( haven’t tested “Trees” yet, but can hardly wait…love me some good trees!)  They look so much like those Unity stamps I love, only 26 for $3.00!  I’m still hyperventilating about it a little bit.

Here’s sale bill I just got in my email from ScrapNFonts:  (I’m obviously going to need more fonts…the DB Woodsy cut so clean and FAST on the Cricut…some fonts  do NOT cut fast at all, nice perk!)

By the way: I bought an extra pack of 48 Prisma markers if anyone locally is interested the price was so good!  Call me.

ME: “MAGGIE”

Sifting the joy from the mundane:

I am married to the love of my life, as we raise three children, learning the ways of grace.

Magnanimity (derived from the Latin roots magn- great, and anima, soul) is the virtue of being great of mind and heart. It encompasses, usually, a refusal to be petty, a willingness to face danger, and actions for noble purposes. Its antithesis is pusillanimity. Both terms were coined by Aristotle, who called magnanimity "the crowning virtue."

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:

MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.[1] (Source: Wikipedia)

I recommend that you research and double check things on your own before taking any advice or instruction from this site.  Information is given in good faith for the time period in which it was written. I am also an affiliate of the Sure Cuts A Lot software, for Cricut, which means you don't need Cricut cartridges to cut any font or .jpg on your computer.  I get some pocket change for introducing you if you choose to buy it by clicking on my site.  And we all know I need more cardstock, so I do appreciate it.  I sometimes review other products for a fee, but I am not required to give a positive review, and post honestly as to my experience.  I hope you find this useful.
