Using Word to Add Sentiments to Your Cards

I get a lot of emails asking me how I add sentiments to my Cricut Images so I thought I would do a quick video. I typically use Photoshop to create my sentiments, but today we are going to use Word. I try to match the shape as closely as possible to a Word image. If it is an unusual shape, I try to come as close as possible. Please watch the video for complete details!



I also recently filmed a video on how to make rub-ons and thought I would repost in case you missed it. Both methods work well for adding sentiments!



Thanks for visiting and stay tuned for a fun Terrifically Talented Thursday!

Loved watching your video on putting sentiments on your paper. Don't know if I could do it or not. I'm not very good on things like that. To bad your not my neighbor. He! He! Thanks for Sharing. :0)

Thanks for the tutorial. I often create computer-generated sentiments so was curious to see how you did things. We are almost identical in our methods!
I have already seen your rub-on tutorial. In fact, a couple of months ago, I overheard a young couple looking for particular sticker sentiments for an album. They said they'd been looking for "aunt" expressions for over a year. I told them about your blog and rub-on tutorial video. I hope they found it!

Your videos are so helpful. I would love to see one on printing a sentiment in Photoshop. I am very comfortable with Word, but still learning PS.
