Ok, Cricut Design Studio software is on sale at Michaels this week for $60. And, it is one of the easier ways to create those word books that everyone loves (see photo above). So, I have been doing some research on exactly how to make those word books and as usual, the internet tells me everything I need to know. (I love people who are willing to share their knowledge!)
For starters, I found these sites with tutorials on exactly how to make word books. The end result is a little different amongst the different tutorials, so make sure to look at the photos on the site and see if that is what you want.

Now, the blog Everything Cricut and Brandi Gore make a good point of saying, "Hey, as long as you give credit, why not use all the free cut files everyone posts on the internet? Why reinvent the wheel every time you want to cut something out?" So, I wondered not only where to find these already designed cut files but also how to download them and get them into the design studio. Here are some links to help you:
That list of sites with free files is very comprehensive. It may take me the next week to really look through all those sites. I'll let you know if I find more goodies.
