Guest Designer Creative Critter Tammy - PLANTIN SCHOOLBOOK

Hello Everyone!  This is Tammy from CREATIVE CRITTERS and I am very honored that Pam has invited me to be guest designer today on The Bug Bytes!

PLANTIN SCHOOLBOOK is my all time favorite cartridge... seriously.  It has everything that you need.  Four different type of print fonts (my favorite is 'roly poly', lol), all of your basic shapes, a couple of tags and two different shape envelopes with matching cards.  How can you go wrong with all that!  But best of all, this cartridge has an END CAP creative feature.  What?  You don't know what that is?!  Or if you do, maybe you haven't used it much?  It is (IMO) cooler than sliced bread!  I use it all the time for nametags at my cricut retreats.  Here is the one that I made for this past weekend's WILD ABOUT U cricut retreat.



This tag can be done with both the cricut alone (yes! even the baby bug will make this one!) and with the gypsy or design studio.  Let me show you how:

Here are a couple of other nametags that I have made for past retreats...








Thanks for stopping by THE BUG BYTES today! And thanks Pam, for allowing me to come play! Please feel free to visit me anytime at www.cricutcritters.com!

Cricutingly yours,

Fantastic tutorial and great tags. I love this feature on Plantin and have made all sorts of tags with it, they are especially great for lunchboxes.

I just got Plantin the other day and haven't played with it yet. Thanks for a great tutorial. I'll have lots of fun making these tags. The list is endless.

Kimberly T. said...

AWESOME!!! Thank you so much! I've been wanting to do this, but haven't had the time to try and play around with the end cap feature (I thought it was a lot harder, lol.) I'm so making these for my girls instrument cases, gives a little style and will make it much easier to find their's in all those black cases. :)

Sheila aka SassyLady said...

Wow! Thank you for showing us how to do this! I have never tried it before and now can't wait! I will have to make luggage tags for sure!

Short Scrapper said...

Thanks so much for the video. I'm still a bit unclear as to the function of endcaps, but I'll give it a try. Love the tags! I can use them for name tags for my class next year. tfs

csroyal said...

Very cool, Tammy! I didn't think I needed Plantin, but looks like I was wrong.

flowerdisco said...

Thanks for sharing how to make name tags! That is just awesome!!! :)

Deanna Mulder said...

Tammy, thanks for sharing this. I wondered if there was a way to do the end cap feature with my Gypsy. Now I know. Love your tag and your paper.
