ZooBalloo Cartridge

A is for Alligator and Y is for Yak. This whimsical font unites letters and animals for truly personal projects.

David Walker

Like most artists, I’ve been drawing and painting all my life. As a child I was rarely without a sketchbook and pencil—funny how after all these years things haven’t changed much.

After graduating from the University of Kansas, my first job was as an art director at Hallmark Cards in Kansas City, Missouri. The experience was invaluable, but eventually I decided it was time to begin licensing my own artwork.

Like many businesses, the first year was a struggle, but I was doing what I loved, so I stuck to it. My days are now spent in my studio in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, working on products ranging from children’s books and greeting cards to gift wrap and scrapbook papers. My life is a tangle of dogs and cats and kids, and my art is obviously inspired by all the wonderful chaos that comes with them.


I guess the saying "Be careful what you wish for, you just might get it" applies nicely to my life, and I couldn’t be happier about that.


Cartridge Overview
All of the cartridges have two Creative Features in common. They are Shadow and Blackout. The function of these two keys are exactly the same in all circumstances: Shadow perfectly mats the original graphic and Blackout gives you a general shadow of the original but with no interior cuts (such as the two holes in a capital letter B).

Discovering the rest of the individual cartridges Creative Features is like embarking on a scavenger hunt where you shriek "ah ha" every time you try out a new one. Doesn't it make you excited to find out what new ones the Cricut team will come up with next?



Samples
This week, I decided to share with you a trick I use to find the perfect font set for a specific project. Much has been said on the message board about how to keep track of what you have in your library from keeping the handbooks at your fingertips to printing 8.5 x 11" copies of the individual handbooks.
Here's what works for me. Instead of printing the entire graphic set from the online font handbooks, I chose four different letters (E, G, T, W). From the online handbooks, I printed out only those pages. Then, on those pages, I wrote what set it was from. I inserted the pages into sheet protectors and organized them by putting all "E" pages together, all "G"s, and so forth. Since I have all the font cartridges (except for the much-hoped-for, rare Doodletype!), I did this for all the sets.



If you choose to try this method of Cricut library organization, decide for yourself what letters of which you want samples. I chose "E" because it is an often-used letter and for it's single-line height when lower cased. The "G" was picked for its 2-line height (below the main line) and because the lower case letter comes in many different appearances. The "T" was used for its 2-line, (above the main line) look and its frequent use. Finally, the "W" was used to identify clearly which font sets have rounded, sharp, classic, or funky features.




Features in Common
Many Cricut users have purchased all of the cartridges currently on the market. Using coupons, sales, the internet, LSS’, and TV shopping shows, the country’s going buggy in a big way!

Not including the special cartridge available through QVC or George and Basic Shapes, there are six font cartridges and six shape cartridges. The fonts include: All Mixed Up, Base Camp, Jasmine, Mini Monograms, Stamped, and Teardrop. The shape cartridges are Animal Kingdom, Beyond Birthdays, Celebrations, Christmas Cheer, Doodlecharms, and Tags, Bags, Boxes & More.

All of the cartridges have two Creative Features in common. They are Shadow and Blackout. The function of these two keys are exactly the same in all circumstances: Shadow perfectly mats the original graphic and Blackout gives you a general shadow of the original but with no interior cuts (such as the two holes in a capital letter B).

Discovering the rest of the individual cartridges’ Creative Features is like embarking on a scavenger hunt where you shriek “ah ha” every time you try out a new one.
