I ♥ my Gypsy & Comp book

I have only had my Gypsy for a few months & have liked using it but today I LOVE it!!! I had to make some letters for a teacher to put on her classroom wall. I used Birthday Bash cart because I love the alpha on there!  I wanted them big so I made them 6"...well of course a 12x12 paper SHOULD be able to cut 4 letters, right? Of course not!! The "W" for one is wider than 6", so if I just used my Cricut alone I probably would have only got MAYBE 2 letters on a page...more than likely 1 letter!  So, I used my Gypsy to flip & turn & actually on one of my cuts I got FOUR letters on one page!!!

And here are the letters put together...It will say "WORD WALL"
LOVE how they turned out!!

Then, recently I got an email from Oh My Crafts that had a craft project in it. I had never seen OMC projects in an email but when I saw the project...I knew I HAD to try it!! I love making comp books but OMG this idea is so cool!! I always make matching pens & this is a perfect way to keep it with your comp book!! Here are the full instructions but here are a few pics of my comp book that I made ALL FOR ME!!! Don't craft just for me very often...but it was fun!! Here is the finished comp book...LOOK at the pen!! So cool!!
 And here are some before pics & more detailed pics...

 I found this lace ribbon at Hobby Lobby! It comes in many different colors but of course I had to have purple!! :)

I really, really love how this turned out & am sure THIS is the way all my comp book orders will be done from now on!

Be sure to come back tomorrow for another Theme Day Thursday and see my project I made for My Cricut Craft Room  Design Team!! It is SO cute!! (If I don't say so myself!! LOL!!)

Until next time...
