Dressed up Expression!

The Gypsy Challenge this week on the Cricut Messageboard was to use the kerning feature on the gypsy. This was hard one for me as I usually make cards and wanted to do something a little different. So, I decided to dress up my Cricut Expression a bit. I kerned the word Creation at 0.2 and the word Station 0.4. I used Plantin Schoolbook for the words. This is my first real project with vinyl and using the transfer tape. I did not get the words on as straight as I had hoped but not bad. I then cut a couple of flourishes from Straight From the Nest cartridge for the back of the Expression. It was actually a pretty fast project. I may still do a little more to the front when I have a chance.


  1. I like these Expressions all dressed up. I have the DS and the Gyspey. One question,
    what is "kerning"?.
