I want to be able to personalize things with my new Cricut. I bought the design studio and was told that it would allow me to do 3-letter monogramming. I want the typical 3-letter, last letter bigger in the middle monogram. I can't figure out how to do this on my machine. Does anyone know how to do this?
Thanks!

Do you want the letters welded together so it cuts as one piece? If so, set the size of the first letter, put it on the mat. Then change the size for the middle letter and put it on the mat. Then, go back to the first size and add the last letter to the mat. Click on the letter so the arrows around it show and use the upper left arrow to move the letter where you want it in relation to the fist letter and make sure they slightly overlap. Click the weld box in the upper right design box. Then do the same for the 3rd letter, make sure to weld. Click on your first letter and weld.

You can then open a new page/mat and click on the preview button (the eyeball) to see how your design will cut. If you aren't happy with the preview, go back to the first mat and tweak your design. You shouldn't have to worry about "burping" the design unless you are welding within a frame.

Thanks so much!
Scrapalette, I'll try that and see if I can get it to work. What is the font in your example? It's so pretty!

Seeing as scrapalette is probably sleeping right now I thought I'd answer. Smile

She used the Martha Stewart Elegant Cake cart. You can see the name of the cart above the virtual keypad in her pictures.
