Campin Critters Layout

I got the new Campin Critters cartridge yesterday that I ordered from and I love it. I was so excited I wanted to cut something immediately so I made the project that's in the book. Let me just warn you that the sizes for the Happy Camper sign are NOT correct. I couldn't use my gypsy because it doesn't have CC on it yet so I went by the directions in the book for sizes. For the sign it says to cut it at 5 1/2". I'm thinking they must have meant 3 1/2". I didn't have time to try it smaller yet. I will do that right after work today and post an update. Just wanted to let everyone know about the incorrect size in case you plan on making it. I must say that it is super cute though, even if I didn't use the sign. Until I get home and can take a better picture and also try the smaller sign, here is a really bad picture I took this morning (in the dark with my cell phone).

Okay, back home now with a better picture and a different size title. I cut the Happy Camper at 3 1/2" this time and it worked out much better. I also changed the ribbon at the top, but I still don't like it much. I'll have to go shopping for ribbon this weekend. I'm working on a second page to go along with this one, but I'm waiting on my Gypsy to update. I'm hoping the new cartridges are included on the update because I have a hard time knowing what size to cut things without it. Be sure to check back tomorrow to see the matching page.

  1. What a cute layout! I love that little skunk peeping out from behind the tree and the pink camper is awesome! Will check back for page 2!
