Die Cut Appliqué – Sayings, Lettering and Fonts

21 Aug

If you’ve followed me for any length of time you know I love all things Sizzix no affiliation (but I would like to).  Thus Autumn Splendor design was die cut using Sizzix steel rule dies, everything accept the lettering.  Sizzix does have alphabets though some can be pricey. Often a design requires a specific font style and size. What to do?  Well if you are competent with any of the electric plotter cutters you are good. If not, here is what I do. In Microsoff Word change margins to .5 and choose landscape then click on Word Art. Select the first lettering choice.  I prefer a font that is “welded” meaning the letters are connected. Script Bold is a good choice. Enlarge to taste. Click Rotate to Mirror image for tracing (flip horizontal)  onto fusible.  If your lettering doesn’t fit on one page make separate pages for each word.  

Cut something out and create!

Sweet Talk

31 Jan

Sizzix has several Heart dies in their lineup. What could be better than designing around the iconic Conversation Hearts? Here are my projects related to this theme. I created a large table mat for my antique tea table, a smaller candle mat version, a tiny tall table banner, and Conversation Heart topiaries. I hope you are planning some Sweet Talk for your favorite Valentine!
