Word Books: Cricut Cut Files

A while back, I tried my hand at designing a couple of word books using my Cricut Expression, Cricut Design Studio and the Alphalicious cartridge.

Each letter of each book is laid out on a separate 12" x 12" mat in the cut file. I made the base cuts using Bazzill textured cardstock in Raven. I highly recommend you cut these images from a heavier cardstock and then apply decorative papers to give your books a bit more sturdiness (unless of course, you've used chipboard for your base). The embellishments can be up to your heart's desire. I used DCWV decorative papers, eyelets, and cuts from a few other Cricut Solutions cartridges to decorate mine. I thought I'd share the CUT files for these two projects, so that you can explore your creativity.

Hi Albert,

Nice books - I downloaded your files - thanks for sharing! I just did my first word books for the Cricut Message Board swap - they are on my blog if you'd like them (not sure it you have a use for "recital" or "college"). They are fun to do! I like the way you added the lips on "Love"!
