Sad to See it Go

Today is the last day for many of my favorite things as the Close To My Heart Seasonal Expression 1 retires.

I almost waited too long to grab up the Here For You Card Workshop Your Way. The beautiful swirly base and shade stamp and the grays and greens with a little pink, which is easily swapped out for a blue to turn this to a more masculine card kit, are just a few of the reasons I wanted to be sure and pick this kit up.

Design Space Friday create an Image Base

Have you tried the new BETA version of Design Space 3? Today's video will share a little about the changes.

I have been working on several new overlays, playing with positioning and adding borders and more.




Today's overlay was created for a friend who had a cute photo of her fur baby getting a bath. I may have gotten a little carried away with the bubbles, LOL! 

The video will show how to create a base for piecing a multi-piece image. The bath tub and all the parts are separate and there is not a base for the image. I like to have a base for a paper pieced image to make it easier to assemble. And I wanted to add the puppy.

Stamping a Border on a Card

Today's project uses the scallop border stamp image and the cute heart cluster.

Using a clean and simple approach, I wanted to create a card that would work great using one full set of the Close To My Heart color palettes. These cards use the Adventure palette, the samples are created using Raspberry and Willow with a touch of black.



And add a little cute to the envelope


These cards are for an upcoming class where each attendee will create ten cards using one of the Adventure colors. The class kit consists of 2 sheets of one color of Adventure cardstock, 2 sheets of White Daisy cardstock, one pack of black and white dots, and the instructions for cutting and assembling.

Design Space Friday Split Images

I love the Cricut Design Space and my favorite is what I call the Slice and Dice feature. Really it is slicing and welding to create new more personalized images.

This last week I saw a cute Easter split image and thought I would love to try this with flowers and the word Spring.


Also some exciting news, I will be teaching my fav Slice and Dice and Weld at a new event, Crazy Crafters Convention. There is also a Facebook group for this FUN event.

And just for a little sneak peek at how much FUN slicing and dicing can be, here is a video sharing how I split my floral image and added the word 'Spring'. Enjoy!
