Late - and I mean late - last night my darling daughter mentioned that she had to turn in a project for her French class and that she wanted to use my Cricut to decorate.
So, praying a thankful prayer that I had French Manor, off we went to my scrap room. Her project was to make a menu for her French Cafe'. Everything had to be written in French with prices in Euros.
She went through my book and made all the cuts herself, I helped her assemble the menu (because she isn't good with glue - lol) and wrote up the offerings for her (she hasn't learned Calligraphy yet).
I think she did a great job - and once again I am thankful for my Cricuts. My printer has been on the fritz for about 2-3 months now, so we can't print anything at home and if I had one of the machines where you design with your computer and cut it out (Silhouette, Pazzles, etc) she wouldn't have been able to do most of the work. I do have my Gypsy loaded with this cartridge, but she does not know how to use it.
~ProvoCraft, this is a perfect example of why you should not discontinue cartridges and should always make the physical cartridges - so that the young ones can still use the wonderful machines without touching mommy's Precious Gypsy!!~
Back of the Menu:
The Cricut is just perfect for these types of (last-minute) projects - and so kid-friendly. My daughter is a teen, but she has been playing with my baby bug since I first purchased it. I think that I shall finally give her the baby bug so that she can use it for anything she wants - school or otherwise. Of course, I do need two machines so I shall have to save up for another Expression!
