I just bought my Expression and I was wondering if anyone can give me instructions for making the word albums? I want to make one that says BABY, but I have no idea how to go about cutting the the letters and what to cut them from.

Thanks, Dee

To make a word album you need either a gypsy or design studio.

I do have a Gypsy but it's not hooked up yet.

Is it done with chip board?

Yes - you use chip board (or even old cereal boxes) to cut the base. You then cut out paper (patterned or solid) to cover the chipboard. There was a link on the old MB for making word books - I will see if i can find it for you.

okay here is one link to an old message I found http://www.cricut.com/me...mp;key=easy&#5782622

here is another one (more detailed) http://www.cricut.com/me...eboard/tm.aspx?m=5058427

Hope they help!

Herethis is a link to BugJunkie's youtube sight. I know this video is more design studio related, but these are the videos I watched to learn how to create basic word books (letters albums) and shape albums. There are a lot more videos on her sight about making the books. She is super creative also with her albums like this. She also has some fun free cut files (that you can transfer to gypsy files) that you can use on your own.
Good luck! and be sure to post pics of what you create!!!
