TEXAS San Antonio Alamo Tag

Used Destinations Cricut cartridge and Cricut CraftRoom to design the TEXAS San Antonio Alamo images. Designed in the Cricut CraftRoom and then exported it/uploaded it to my Gypsy. Had not used the Cricut Craft Room since it was first created. Received the email indicating that Cricut CraftRoom now worked with the Gypsy which I was waiting for. Gave it a try and after a couple of tries I got the file on my Gypsy. You have to save the file in Gypsy format onto your computer. You have to close the Cricut CraftRoom. Then you start Cricut Sync program and export/upload to the Gypsy.

Background stamped the Tag with a deadbeat Designs Texas stamp. Stamped the sentiment 'TEXAS' with a deadbeat Designs stamp that has alot more on the stamp but only needed the word 'TEXAS' part. Used faux stitching to border the word 'TEXAS.' Used Spellbinder Star die for the Stars. Recycled some string/rope for Tag.

  1. Remember the Alamo! Love tag Melissa - you did a great job on this one for sure!

  2. Very nice. I remember the Alamo was the first movie my parents ever took me to. And it was loooooong...especially for a 5 year old!

  3. This tag is very pretty. Melissa!! Thanks for joining us at DCD this week!

  4. Really cute tag Melissa. Sorry that it doesn't meet the theme of Perfect Sentiment Challenge which states it needs to be a card. Perhaps you'd like to try again.

    1. Ok, perhaps I'll try again.
