Design Space Friday Creating Your Own Cut Files

This past weekend was our Close To My Heart convention. I wanted to create a T-shirt for each day and a gift for my Team members.


Here is what I came up with for my T-shirt design. I create different color schemes - silver and pink on a yellow t-shirt, bright pink and white on a black t-shirt, and red and white on a blue t-shirt.

I also cut a red (heart) and white (logo) for each of my team members who joined me at Convention.

Here is a video on how I brought in the logo. July's videos will be on creating your own cut files.

Enjoy

Hello Foxy

This week I took the wreath stamped in Archival Black and colored with the soft touch of watercolor pencils.

The wreath is stamped on a piece of White Daisy and cut out and attached to the card front.

The HI! sentiment is stamped in the middle.

I added the black dots, however I think it looks good without them too.

Remember you can purchase the Stamp of the Month for only $5 with a qualifying $50 order.

SHOP NOW!

Design Space Friday Window Pane Card

Design Space Friday is all about slicing a window pane card base.

The two templates created today may be used to create a window pane that may be placed atop a card base (the gray piece).

And a template for a window pane card front. A card front for this tutorial would be a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 rectangle with a window pane cut and this piece may be placed atop a card base (8 1/2 x 5 1/2 folded to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2).

Enjoy the video
