NSD Challenge #9 - Mix It Up!!

Okay, for this challenge I want you to mix up your fonts and sizes.  Make a really fun title!!  I loved how my project turned out and this is honestly the first time I have tried this.

  17. I have been on the pink stamper ban wagon for a while and this is awesome. This would go a lot smoother if you had a juke box no turning the machine of and on and no unloading the paper. I love mine and was the next best investment other then my cricut.(deejcarter2003@yahoo.com)

  20. I just can't believe it. 9 videos so far and each one is great! You have really outdone yourself this time.

    Here's my take on challenge 9.

  22. I love this LO ... I've always like the whimsical way titles look when the letters are mixed. Great idea for a challenge.

  30. Hi Robyn,
    This challenge is hard but fun at the same time. I was gonna try different colors but it turned out to be harder than i thought so i used one color with different font. Please check it out at:

  43. Robyn, I love this LO. The idea of mixing up the fonts & sizes is awesome. Thanks to you, I've really started to love my Cricut. I've had the original one since it's release but rarely used it. The cartridge instruction books were just too confusing. And the mats didn't last very long which seemed so wasteful to me - and very un-green. Thanks to you I know how to re-sticky my mats. Yea! I can now use them almost forever. You've taught me tons of useful information for getting the most out of my cartridges. Thanks to you I recently bought the Expression because it has a lot more versatility and allows me to make larger cards and boxes (my luvs).

    Thanks a million for your fabulous videos.

  44. I really love how you mixed up the different cartridges, great scrapbook page!!!

  49. ok. so I wasn't sure I would even like this. BUT I tried it anyway, and I LOVED it! I did it for a Monogram on a tag. My problem was that I didn't think to use real dial size and had to cut SEVERAL of each letter to end up with the actual size I wanted for the ones on the sides and a larger one for the center. It was actually cute and in the same paper it looked whimsical but clean. Thanks!!!

  54. Robyn, I am so surprised that you don't still sell SU or some other product! You wouldn't need to do home evening parties with the new online ordering they do now days. If you put kits together then did videos on how to put them together, you could sell product and you would be a HUGE hit!

    This LO still needs a journalling box, but I wanted to get it entered! This was fun and I'm not sure I would have thought to try it without your challenge! I'm guessing it would be a lot quicker/easier with a Jukebox!

  59. This was soo much fun. I love the mixed up letters. I have a total of 7 carts altogether, and only three of them are fonts, so I was a little limited. But I made the best of it. I need more carts. I plan on using this layer with a picture of my scraproom that was such a mess during all of these challenges.
