Monster-licious!


Provo Craft has been releasing so many new cartridges lately that I find myself not playing with Make-the-Cut as much as I want to. I have been buying up carts from eBay and the Cricut Lite ones from Walmart but I still do not own the one cart that I really want. "Mini Monsters" WILL be mine but I have to wait for the right price before that can happen. To satisfy the need for monsters, I pulled up my Lettering Delights' collection and found this Monster-licious set. I just had to make these monsters "cut-able".



It took an afternoon of messing with Adobe Photoshop and MTC but I managed to come up with these:


My kids kept running into the craft room to see the monsters so that I just had to turn them (the monsters, not the kids!) into puppets for the girls. Perhaps that will make them stay out of my way long enough so that I can think about the next thing to CriCUT.

  1. Wow, Jin! You did an awesome job with these monsters! Isn't the new version of MTC just incredible? BTW, I love the papers and patterns you chose for your monsters, they just all alive!

  4. Perhaps I missed the comment Cut-able - can you cut them through Make the cut? I have SCAL - can you cut with that? Thanks!

  5. Thanks eunice and Gina. :) I had so much fun cutting these monsters out. I made them so that they layer like the Create-A-Critter cart too. No teeny pieces. Yay! :)


    Thienly Azim, I did use Make-the-Cut to cut out these monsters. I do not have SCAL but I think that you probably can do the same with SCAL too. All I did was to make some slight adjustments to the image in Photoshop so that it can trace well and then use MTC to trace it and cut. I think you would do the same except in SCAL, right?

  7. Well, sometimes it's more about owning it and not really about using it, right Joy? ;-)

    I want that cart but not for more than $30. I'm a patient person. :D
