Tuesday Tutorial: Welding & Layering Titles with Cricut

Tuesday Tutorials are back!  I have been getting requests for more Cricut™ tutorials, and, after a few months of planning, I have made the decision to not only post here, on my blog, but start a few Live classes in my Create with Miss. Carrie’s Creations VIP Facebook Group.  This week, I am going to show you how to weld together various images and layers of images in Design Space™ to create this beautiful Christmas title for your scrapbook pages. TuesdayTutorialChristmasTitle-misscarriescreations

In order to play in Design Space™, you need to set-up an account on the Cricut™ website. You don’t have to have a machine to play, but you do need an Cricut Explore™ Series machine or Cricut Maker™ machine as well as the CTMH Cricut™ collections I used to cut out the images.

Design Space™ Instructions:
1. Insert images Merry Christmas(#MD7AF2A) and Christmas Tree(#M412B07) from our CTMH Artistry Collection.

2. We will only be using the “Christmas” portion of the title. DELETE the “Merry Christmas” title image. You can do this by either UNGROUPING the image, select the image and DELETE, or select the image you wish to delete in the Layers Panel and Delete.

 

 

 

 


3. Choose insert TEXT and type the word “HAPPY”.  Use the Edit Panel to choose a Font of your choice. Using the FILTER option will help to narrow down the decision to Fonts you own.

4. Use LETTER SPACE to reduce the spacing between the letters to the point where they are touching. You can also UNGROUP TO LETTERS if needed. Once the spacing is to your liking, select all of “HAPPY” and choose WELD.

5. Move “HAPPY” above “CHRISTMAS”. Resize and re-position as needed.

6. Select “HAPPY” and “CHRISTMAS”, then choose WELD.

7. DUPLICATE the “Tree” image. Resize, re-position, and layer trees as desired.

 

 

 

 


8. Change colors of “Trees” and Title, and you are finished.  (I chose to use some other features in Design Space™ to add more layers to my trees.)
