How to make a word book in Design Studio Tutorial, Princess Word Book

princesswordbook

Here is a three part tutorial on how to create  a word book in Cricut Design Studio.  It is all silent, no verbal instructions. 

This is a Princess Word Book using only Storybook Cricut Cartridge.   This biggest tip that I can give in making a wordbook is to copy and paste your square so it will line up correctly each time and start your letters with the Shadow size.  When it comes time to make your Shadow letters you use the base font.  It makes all the difference in the world and makes shadowing so easy. 

All three parts are available in mp4 version for download.  If you decide to download it, please just leave a comment.  Thanks!

Still Working on Daughter Wordbook

 

dsc033241

I am still working on the wordbook.  I try to do a little bit here and there as I can.  I was so excited to get it put together today with my bind it all…  then my worst fear arghhhh!!! I messed up the first page and ended up putting the holes in crooked.  I even did test cuts on some extra pieces so I could figure out where I wanted the holes to be.  The only thing that I can think of was that it got caught on the shadowed D and did not get down all the way, like I SWEAR that it was.  I thought about it for awhile and decided to just let it be what it is.  I think I covered it up pretty well with the ribbon and bow.

I love working with glitter but it is messy and a pain.  I learned a trick to run the letters through the Xyron machine backwards and then put the glitter on.  It works!  The glitter stays put and does not come off on your fingers and go everywhere.  I tried the flower-soft on the the scalloped circle and I am not sure I like it but I think that it looks okay.

I can’t believe that it has been almost 2 years, time sure does fly by quick.  I am just glad that I have a ton of pictures to look back through.

Scalloped Square SVG

I am working on my daughters word book and I needed a scalloped background for a picture and this is what I came up with.  I thought that it would be just a piece of cake to create using a square and circles but as it turned out it is not as easy as one would think but overall I am happy with how it turned out.

Daughter Wordbook Cricut Storybook Cartridge

I just finished cutting the wordbook and I LOVE it.  I changed it up a little bit.  My first time cutting looked like this.

dsc03307

I did not like the open spaces.  I wanted to be able to maximize the space where I could add pictures or embelish the word book more so I went back to the Design Studio and hid the contours of the letters and ended up with this.

I like the second version much better.  After cutting the paper to cover my book this is what I ended up with so far. 

dsc033101

In Design Studio I was not able to save the file with the contours hid.  I would reopen it and some of them would be hid and some of them not.  I think it must be a flaw in the program. 

If you need help on how to hide the countours please see the following video.

I had to adjust the length of some of the word book pages since I changed the way I was cutting it. If you would like to download this version please click on the following link.

Version 2 of Daughter Wordbook Cricut Storbybook Cartridge

If you want a good source for chipboard I recommend www.uline.com chipboard.  I got 625 12×12 pieces for $53.00 plus shipping.  It is .022 thickness.  I cut it with my regular cricut blade with 3x multi cut.  It reminds me of the thickness of the cardboard pads on the back of regular notepads.
