Plenty of fish




I guess it has become quite apparent that I can't get enough of this Lettering Delight's Seven Seas graphic set. I have bought several Cricut cartridges (including some Lite ones from Walmart) recently and yet I still found a lot of satisfaction  converting and cutting out these LD images up with my Cricut using the Make-The-Cut software. It does make it hard to justify keeping all those Lite carts (still in their blister packs!) when this graphic set only cost me a mere fraction of the cost of 1 cartridge.


Today's project is a tri-fold card that measures 6" x 6" when closed. This is what you see when the card is closed...



... and once opened, this is what you get:

  1. gorgeous as always, but I do have a question. How big was your cardstock when you started if that is a 6x6 card, 17 inches?

  2. Thanks Dalis. I used a sheet of 18" x 24" Cricut cardstock and then cut it down to 6" x 17" with MTC. :)

  3. Hi there, love this! I like the images from Lettering Delight also! But it seems my images does not are so nice ... Is there a secret: do you only convert in MTC or also in Inkcape? Thanks for sharing! Bye! Anne-Marie

  4. Thanks, Anne-Marie. I use Adobe Photoshop and MTC to convert the images. I do not use Inkscape at all. :)

  7. Jin Yong, have you checked WalMart's website for the Lite cartridges? You get free shipping to your local WalMart store...eBay prices are way out of hand!

  8. Thanks eunice, walmart.com sold out of the cart that I want so I've been going to the store to look for it. You know, I really should rewrite this blog post. I had meant to say that I've been bidding for regular (non-lite) carts on eBay and going to Walmart stores for the Lite ones but what I wrote did sound like I've been bidding for the Lite carts. yikes!
