Learning Design Space

I've been learning more about Cricut Explore and Design Space. I've known about the print and cut feature, but I just discovered patterns! Until Yesterday,  I had no clue that some image sets / cartridges have patterns, or that you could upload digital paper jpg files you have! I love this feature! For these cards I used Lori's Garden, which is part of the subscription. Everything except the the ribbon and card base was a print and cut item.

Sympathy Card using FFS Cut File

I've been using my Cricut Explore a lot recently. When I had the need for a sympathy card I decided to use a window card from one of Close To My Heart's Cricut Collections and flowers from Fred She Said's Cutting File - Build a Floral Spray SET 1 (SVGs work with Design Space / Cricut Explore).

Dancing Penguin

I love this Dancing Penguin Digi Stamp from Fred She Said. I used my print and cut feature in Cricut's Design Space and then used an image from Joys of the Season to do the snow globe shaped card. The finishing touches are a bow from Close To My Heart and sparkle from Wink of Stella!

Joyful Stars December 2015 Blog Hop

Welcome to the Joyful Stars December 2015 Blog Hop! This hop is a circle, so it doesn't matter if you are coming from Nancy's blog or if you start here on my blog. Just continue around until you're back to the blog that you started on to make sure you see all the fabulous projects.

My project is a gift card holder. Kirsten Desorcy, a fellow CTMH consultant, shared cutting dimensions for these adorable gift card holders. I took those dimensions and created a Design Studio project. She included a belly band, but for my cards I used Hook & Loop Dots to keep them closed.

I'll be making a few of these with the White Pines paper and coordinating embellishments for Christmas this year. December is also an anniversary month in my family. My parents are celebrating 51 years on December 22! Here is a version using La Vie En Rose paper and coordinating embellishments

Thanks for hopping along this month. Your next stop is Andrea's blog. Just in case you get lost or experience a technical difficulty, you might want to keep Joyce's blog open in a separate tab, as she has a full list of participants.
