Cricut Cruise 2012

Hi everyone! As some of you know, I was one of the very lucky winners of the Cricut 5th Anniversary promotion. In just two days, my sister and I will be flying to Texas to board the Mariner of the Seas to cruise the Caribbean with Cricut!
We decided we needed some tshirts to distinguish us as the Canadian cricuteers. Leila designed the shirt in Cricut Craftroom and emailed me the file to work with.
I used the Imagine to fill all of the pieces with colours, then layered thrum all by clicking "do not weld" on each piece (otherwise when you put the layer on it will change to the colour of the layer behind it. However, it is important to only print the project, NOT cut because it will cut all of the layers out since we had clicked "do not weld".
I printed the design onto inkjet transfer that I purchased from Walmart in the office supply section.
The cartridges we used are:
Go Canada - maple leaf
Cricut Everyday - cricut bug
Robotz - font
Imagine All Wrapped Up - colours
This process took me quite a long time because the Craftroom program still does not get along very well with my imagine, it takes a lot of restarting the I and switching cartridges for it to realize that I do actually have them! It sure took a lot of patience, but I was so excited about what I was creating that it was worth the minor frustration! I love that I was able to layer images and print them as one! Awesome! Hopefully Gypsy linking will be an available update soon so I can avoid the technical difficulties with switching out the cartridges!
Hope you like it!
