This was my first major attempt at designing a paper piecing with SCAL. In the past I've taught a few variations of this design as a mini book at a local scrapbooking store. This was before I had my Cricut and SCAL so I used CM cutting templates, punches and QuicKutz dies to create the pieces and then showed the students how to put it all together. I printed out clear Avery labels with the letters so they could have the correct font. Most often the studnets would ask me to hand write "The Happiest Place on Earth" and "Est. 1955 because they liked my handwriting.
Once I had SCAL I sat down and designed the piece using the basic shapes and a few fonts. Now I have some Cri-Kit pens and used them so I no longer need to hand write "The Happiest Place on Earth" and Est. 1955. I've also merged the font with the boxes to utilize the negative space and not have to worry about small pieces getting lost.
Finally to add some dimension I used foam squares to raise the letters off the sign. I'm really happy with how it looks and am seriously considering adding it to my Etsy store.
