Anna’s Decorative Monograms Cartridge Tutorial

Hi everyone!

The Anna’s Decorative Monograms cartridge from Cricut makes it so easy to personalize anything with vinyl, iron on, fabric, paper and more. The sky is the limit with this image set!

By popular request, today we’ll give you a quick tutorial on a couple of different monogram techniques using our cartridge in Design Space.

If you would like to create a classic three letter monogram,  go to “insert images,” search in Cartridges for Anna’s Decorative Monograms. From the groups of letters, select each of the three letter groups you need and insert them on your canvas. Then select each group of letters individually, and click ungroup in the edit palette.

After you have ungrouped each set of letters, delete all of the letters you do not need by selecting each one and clicking the X in the top left corner.

Space the three letters as desired, then select all to highlight all three letters at the same time. Click group in the edit palette.

If you’d like to cut all three letters in the same color, on the same mat, go to the edit palette and click sync. Drag the 2 letters to the color you want to cut so that all 3 letters are the same color. We drug the F and the G into the pink A layer.

Select all and group and attach the monogram. Now your monogram is ready to cut! Feel free to scale the grouped image as large or small as you’d like, and add a cartouche or frame to complete your look.

If you’d like your monogram to cut as one large image, you’ll need to weld your letters together. This is really fun to do with our Decorative Leaf letters! Simply insert the three letters of your monogram, scale them as desired and make sure the letters are overlapping slightly.

Screen shot 2015-07-14 at 10.44.21 AM

Select all to select the entire image, and click weld in the layers palette.

Screen shot 2015-07-14 at 10.45.14 AM

Now your monogram will cut in one large piece, which is great for projects like this iron on fabric pillow or vinyl clipboard!

Happy monogramming!
