Tuesday Tutorial

There are times that I come across a title that I want to use for a scrapbook page, and I don’t have the exact cut anywhere in Cricut® Design Space.  I am sure that you have encountered the same dilemma.  This week, I am going to show you how to manipulate a few images from Close to My Heart and create this cute title for your Valentine pages.  As always, the list of supplies I used on this project can be found at the very bottom of this post.

ValentineTitle

Design Space Instructions:
1. Insert IMAGE Hugs and Kisses – #M416D03.  DELETE the background shape.
2. Insert TEXT “Valentine Wishes”, then choose desired font. (I used Artfully Sent).
3. With the Text selected, choose ADVANCED then UNGROUP TO LETTERS.  Arrange each letter so that it touches the letters next to it.
4. Click & Drag to select the text and choose WELD.

5. Resize and arrange both sets of text to get the look you desire.

I want to make sure that my title attaches exactly like the image I am making, so I am going to create a background image to glue my “Valentine Wishes” onto.  
6. DUPLICATE “Valentine Wishes”. Move the duplicated text to the side.
7. Select the original “Hugs & Kisses” and “Valentine Wishes” then choose WELD.  When you assemble the title, you will know exactly where to place “Valentine Wishes”.

8. Insert TEXT “AND”, then choose desired font. (I used Cricut Stretch).
9. ROTATE 270°, then RESIZE to desired size.
If you want, you can repeat steps 6 & 7 to add the “and” to the background image.

10. Add a heart image, if desired, then cut and assemble.

How cute is this title?!  I love how Design Space allows me to manipulate images I own and recreate new ones.  I challenge you to try to create your own title in Design Space this week (or at least try to create the one I made.) I can’t wait to see what you create!
