  5. Thanks for the great tip! I've always welded the shadow first, and then I've had to glue the regular letters separately. I love your method!

  13. Thanks for sharing! I have had my gypsy for sometime and don't have a clue as to how to use it right. Mostly because I don't have the time it takes to play and understand it, and pretty upset that it didn't come with a guide, so this was very helpful. I tried welding and it was a mess, and that was one of the main reasons for getting it, so thanks for sharing this tip! I really appreciate it. You just help me have a slap the forehead moment why didn't I try it that way!

  14. Wow, wish I would have seen this a few days ago. Took me forever to shadow my words on a project I was working on just the other day. This way is so much easier. You have several good tips in this one tutorial. Can you do more like it?

  18. Thanks Cristina. This was great. I didn't know you could weld all the letters together at once. I always welded one at a time. I didn't know you could copy things from one layer to another. This was very informative. Thanks for posting.
