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.
ValentineTitle_TextWeld
5. Resize and arrange both sets of text to get the look you desire.
ValentineTitle_BothText
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”.
ValentineTitle_TextDuplicate
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.
ValentineTitle_TextAnd

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

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!

Tuesday Tutorial

Cricut® Valentine Treasure 

During the month of December, I took time off from the Tuesday Tutorials to focus on family and the holidays.  Now that the New Year is here, I am excited to show you some more weekly tutorials.  I truly enjoy being able to show you how to create projects and gifts you can give to using your Cricut® machine and our Close to My Heart Cricut® Collections.

ValentineTreasure

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I wanted to show you how to make this charming Valentine Treasure using images from our Flower Market Collection.   This holds a single Treasure candy that you can also decorate with patterned paper. As always, a list of products used on this project can be found at the very bottom of this post.

Cricut® Design Space Instructions:
1. Insert the Special Delivery Tag – #MD402A2 and the Royal Crown – #MD4218A images into your canvas. Delete all the images except the “Tag” shape and “Crown Front”.
2. I wanted a fancier topper for my treat holder, so need to WELD the two images together.  Position the “Crown Front” over the top of the tag and resize as needed. SELECT ALL and WELD the two images together.

3. The candy I used measures 1³⁄8″ x 1″, so I am going to size the “Front” of the holder to 1.75″w and 2.75″h. UNLOCK the image and type in the measurement in the Edit Bar.
ValentingTreasure_Cricut3
4. DUPLICATE the image to create the “Back” of the holder. Choose FLIP the FLIP VERTICAL to make the “Back” of the holder upside-down.
ValentingTreasure_Cricut4
5. Insert a SQUARE shape and resize the SQUARE to 1.6″w x 1″h. (This needs to be the exact same width as the bottom of the “Front”.)
6. Position the “Front”, “Base” and “Back” as shown, then SELECT ALL and ALIGN CENTER HORIZONTALLY.
ValentingTreasure_Cricut5
7. Move the images until all the edges touch, then SELECT ALL and WELD. (I used the Zoom feature for this step.)
ValentingTreasure_Cricut6

8. If needed, ROTATE the image 90′ so that is looks like the image above, and POSITION the image at X=0 and Y=1.
ValentingTreasure_Cricut7
9. INSERT a SCORE LINE then change the HEIGHT to 1.6″ and the POSITION to X=2.75 and Y=1.  DUPLICATE the SCORE LINE and change the POSITION to X=3.75 and Y=1.
10. SELECT ALL and ATTACH the Score Lines to the image.
ValentingTreasure_Cricut8

I added a Heart Border from the Artbooking Collection and circles for the stamped image.  The treat holder is folded on the score lines, the treasure added inside, then held together with a brad and a ribbon on top. This Valentine Treasure can be made using any stamp set you own.  I can’t wait to see what you create!

Cute and Punny Layout

As I plan my stamp of the month projects, I try to find multiple ways to use the stamp set.  After all, we all like to get as much use out of a stamp that we can.  This week, I decided to  try to create a scrapbook page with our A Little Bit of Pun stamp set, and ended up with this adorable Cute as a Button layout.

CuteAsAButtonPunnyLayout.png

Paper Needed: 12″ x 12″ B&T Paper (Whimsy Fundamentals), (4) 6″ x 1½” B&T Paper (Whimsy Fundamentals)  6½” x 4½” Thistle Cardstock, 6¼” x 4¼” Canary Cardstock, 1½” x 12″ B&T Paper (Whimsy Fundamentals) 2½” x 9″ White Daisy Cardstock,  2¾” x 9¼”  Thistle Cardstock

Techniques Used:
•  I used Black Memento Ink to randomly stamp the images onto the White Daisy Cardstock. Instead of masking the sentiment, I (gasp) cut my stamp.  I can still use it as a complete image later on a block or use it as two separate images.
•  The buttons were shaded Watercolor Pencils. I used a Small Round Waterbrush to make the images look more like they were painted.
CuteAsAButtonPunnyLayout_Title.png  The “Button” in the upper right corner was stamped onto Thistle Fundamental paper, then cut out.  I punched holes with a small hole punch, added White Twine, and created a bow.
  The title was created in Cricut® Design Space using the Artbooking and You Are Here fonts.  When a create a title, I always keep the negative piece of cardstock and use it as template for laying out my letters.

This layout was simple to make, and I truly love how it turned out.   Remember, the A Little Bit of Pun acrylic stamp set is only available until December 31st!  Contact me, or visit the Promotions tab my website to see how you can get this stamp set for only $5.00. I can’t wait to see what you create!

BlessedBanner.jpg

As I decorate my home for Fall, I always enjoy finding new projects to create.  I saw this adorable fall banner online and had to recreate it using our Enchantment and Basic Fundamentals papers with my Cricut® machine.  If you wish to recreate this Blessed Banner for your home, I have included a list of supplies, Cricut® cuts, and a short tutorial below.

Cricut® Images Used:
Banner Page – #M4235A  (4.5″w x 6″h)
Square – #M423C5 (3.75″w x 3.25″w)
Square – #M423C5 (3.5″w x 3.0″w)
Maple Leaf – #MD6F565
Feather Leaf – #MD717F5
Oak Leaf – #MD6F5EF

Inserting text can be tricky in Design Space®, so I have included a quick tutorial to help you add text to your Blessed Banner. 

Inserting and Ungrouping Text in Cricut® Design Space
1. After inserting all of your images into your Canvas, you will choose TEXT in the Design Panel, then type BLESSED in the text box.
2. When you insert text, the Text Edit Bar will drop down to allow you to choose the font you wish to use.  ALL shows all fonts available. SYSTEM shows fonts that on on your computer.  CRICUT shows fonts that are just Cricut® fonts.
3. Use your FILTER to narrow the choices down even more. MY FONTS are ones you own. MULTI-LAYER are layered while SINGLE-LAYER are not. WRITING fonts are for writing. You can choose more then one of these filter options.

TextEditBar_Fonts

4. Once you have chosen an FONT, you can change the STYLE if you wish.
5. With your TEXT selected, choose ADVANCED then choose UNGROUP TO LETTERS. You will notice that in your Layers Panel, each letter is now it’s own layer. This will allow you to move each letter individually to the banner pieces.
LayersPanel_Text

6. Move each letter and resize as needed.  You can UNLOCK to resize the width and height separately, or keep it locked to make sure that the letter sizes proportionately.
Text_ArrangeonBanner

7. You can still change the font, color, and style after you have UNGROUPED the text.  You will have to change each one individually if you change your mind, or UNDO to REGROUP the text and choose the font again.

Christmas Card Blog Hop

Welcome to the Christmas Card Blog Hop where we will be showcasing some amazing cards you can make using Close to My Heart products. ChristmasCardsBadge If you have come here from Jean McNulty’s blog, you are on the right path! When you are finished reading my post, you can click on the link at the end to move to the next blog.  This blog hop is designed to allow you to start here and work your way around. It’s simple, fun, and full of ideas you can use to create your Christmas cards this year. If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants on Melinda’s Blog.

November is the time to start preparing for the holidays, writing lists, and sending out Christmas cards.   My husband and I send out quite a few cards each year to family, friends, and ministry partners, so I like to keep my designs as simple as possible.

CardinalChristmasCard

A few months ago, I created a project using this adorable Thoughtful Bird stamp set and promised to show you more ideas, so I have created this elegant Cardinal Christmas card that you can recreate using the stamp set and Cricut® Design Space.

Paper Needed: 12″ x 6″ Cranberry Cardstock, 5¾” x 5¾” B&T Paper (Beary Christmas), 2½” x 5¾” B&T Paper (Beary Christmas), 5″ x 5″ Black Cardstock, 3½” x 3½” White Daisy Cardstock, 3″ x 4″ Gold Foil Paper

The Thoughtful Bird stamp set set is one of our “multi-layered” stamp sets which allows you to layer three different stamps together to create this beautiful cardinal.  When I first purchased the stamp set, it seemed a bit overwhelming, but after using it a few times I fell in love with the possibilities. I am going to share with you a few tips for using this stamp set.

Tips & Techniques:

  • When you first receive your stamp, find a part of the image that you can use as a reference when you stamp the next layer.  On the bird, I used the eye, wing, and tail as my reference points.
  • Use a larger block than necessary, a stamp positioner, or stamp platform.  These will help you to line up the images when stamping.
  • When choosing the colors, search for images of the bird online.  The photos will help you determine which colors will look “realistic” when creating the bird.  This stamp set requires the ink tones to go from light to dark, so look at the undertone shades of the bird to see what might look best.
  • Use second-generation stamping, multi-stamping, and rock-and-roll stamping techniques to change the shade of your inks.
  • Don’t get discouraged if you mess up the first, second, or third time.  I stamped this Cardinal three times before I decided on the ink colors I wanted to use. Here is how my image came to life:

CardinalChristmasCard_LayerOne
I initially stamped the first layer with Cranberry ink, but the shade of red was too close to the Ruby I used in the next layer.  I searched a Cardinal image and found one with a lighter undertone, so I choose to use Smoothie.  Do you see that “eye” hole? This is one of my reference points I used when adding the next layer.

CardinalChristmasCard_LayerTwo
The second layer was stamped using Ruby ink.  I used the “eye” hole, wing tip, and tail as my reference points when stamping the second layer. This layer was stamped twice for a more intense shade of red.

 

 

CardinalChristmasCard_LayerThree
The final layer was the hardest for me to choose.  This layer adds the small details onto the bird image and it is the darkest color.  I initially considered black, but it seemed a little too intense.  Instead, I found that our Nutmeg Ink has a red undertone and blended nicely with the other red tones.

 
I stamped the beak, legs, and Holly branch once the bird was complete.  I love how it turned out! You can continue through the blog hop and see more ideas from twenty other Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their Christmas card ideas using Close to My Heart products.

Christmas Tunes Treats

Who doesn’t love getting sweet treats as a Christmas gift?  These little gift boxes are so simple  and inexpensive to make, that you will want to fill them with sweet treats for your family and friends this Christmas.  The metal tins were purchased in a 3-pack at the local dollar store, decorated with our B&T Christmas papers, then I added the tags I created with the Christmas Tunes stamp set.  Simple…easy…done!

ChristmasTunesSweetTreats
I know you will want to make some of these fun sweet treat tins so I have included  a Cricut® Design Space file and instructions to create these adorable tags. As always, the products I used for these tags are listed at the very bottom of this post.

Paper Needed: 12″ x 4″ White Daisy Cardstock, 6″ x 4″ Black Cardstock, 6″ x 4″ Almond Cardstock, 6″ x 4″ Linen Cardstock, 2¾” x 3¼” B&T Paper (Beary Christmas), 2¾” x 2″ B&T Paper (Silver & Gold)

Assembly Instructions For Wreath Tag:
1. Cut out the tags, circle, and sentiments using this Cricut® Design Space File.  (You will need to own Artbooking and Fling Std Font to cut out the images.)
2. Using the Christmas Borders “Snowflakes” background, stamp the images onto the Almond tag using VersaMark Ink, then sprinkle with Clear Embossing Power and use a Craft Heater to emboss.
3. Adhere the Almond tag onto the center of the White Daisy Tag.
4. Adhere the 2¾” x 3¼” Beary Christmas B&T Paper horizontally onto the tag, 1″ from the top of the tag, then place four Red Beary Christmas Dots onto the each of the corners.
5. Adhere the Sentiment onto the bottom right corner of the tag.
6. Using New England Ivy Ink, stamp the “Wreath” image onto the White Daisy circle, then adhere to the tag using 3D Foam Tape.
7. Using Cranberry Ink, stamp the “Banner” image onto a scrap of White Daisy cardstock, cut out the image, then adhere to the “Wreath” using 3D Foam Tape.
8. Create a decorative knot with a 6″ piece of White Burlap Ribbon then adhere to the top of the tag.
9. Loop a piece of White Twine through the holes and attach to the treat box then add a To/From sentiment onto the back of the tag.

ChristmasTunesTreatTags
The Snow Globe tag was created in the same manner with a few alterations.  I stamped the image using Black Memento Ink, shaded the image with ShinHan markers, and added glitter to the Snow Globe with a Clear Shimmer Brush. Since the base of this tag is black, I use our Chalk Marker to write my To/From sentiment.

Remember, the Christmas Tunes stamp set is only available until October 31st. Visit the Promotions tab on my website to learn how you can purchase this set for only $5.00.  Please post projects you have created using this festive stamp set on my facebook page.  I always LOVE seeing other people’s projects. I can’t wait to see what you create!!
