I made these with my Silhouette machine. For those of you who know Silhouette or Cricket, you know lettering can take some time. Especially when you have letters with a "counter". A counter is is the center of a letter which is totally enclosed like an "e", "g", "a", etc. Before you can cut those you first have to work on each individual letter to create a cut so the entire counter isn't removed. Complicated?, I wouldn't call it complicated, but definitely tedious. And then, when you're a perfectionist like I am, it can take a bit of time (to be hones, I'm still not completely satisfied with these....but, they'll work)!
I knew I liked my name! No counters; so mine was one of the easy ones! Of the family names I needed to create, five of them had counters....whew!!!
I already have plans for next years and they involve snowflakes!!
