Learning How To Use The Slice Feature On Design Space


Isn't this little southern belle bear just adorable? I just love playing with my Explore and Design Space as it offers so many features to make designing easier. I never thought I would set aside my Gypsy Woman, but I have. Join me today and learn how you too can make a project using the slice feature. This is just a short video and it will help you.



Now wasn't that easy? I always put my project back together when I adjust it so it is easy to remember just what it looks like. Then I play with the colors to make sure it will look ok using the paper I have.


Well I hope you enjoyed today's post and learned something along the way.
Thank you for your sweet-sweet words of encouragement.  Your comments continue to inspire me. Have a blessed day.

Learn How To Make A Shape Card On Design Space

 
Here is my cute little hedgehog. All you have to do is make an inquiry on your design space and then choose the artwork you like too.

 
 

 
Now wasn't that easy? The programmers for Provocraft did a wonderful job designing this program. It is so much easier than the Gypsy I can hardly believe it. This is the first time that I did a video capturing my screen so please be patient. There is one thing that the video cut off (it will only do 10 minutes) and that is to attach the score line. So after you group it also use your attach button in the edit box and it will work out great.
 

 
I hope your enjoyed this video. See how easy it was to put together....
 
 
This is a closeup of the paper I used. It is from My Minds Eye and it is so nice and shiney I love it. The photo on Design Space was solid colors but I thought I would Sass it up a little.
 

I did use glossy accents as you can see and it is still wet but you can see it looks adorable.


This is the inside of the card. I used a stamp from Joy's Life, the Barnyard Punny set.


Well I sure hope you liked today's post and learned a little something from the two videos. If there is something you would like to learn or can't figure out on DS just contact me.

A Friendship Card And Encouragement Card


Hello, how are you? This weeks card is a nice simple one. I just used this piece of art from Design Space at a 5x5 size. Then I hand cut a 10x5" paper for the card scoring it to a 5x5.



Now wasn't that easy to put together? As you can see I am using this for our upcoming card party. We will used it as a contest card as it is easy to put together.


I then found the above stamp in my stash and used the brown ink and stamped the inside of the card. At first I thought of making it a Valentine card but I really like it as a friendship card.


This card is the 2nd card in my video. My camera ran out of juice so there is no instructions. I thought I would show you a close up of the card as it turned out so nice and also makes a great friendship card.


This is a close up of the front. As you can see there are many layers of this card.


This is the close up of the inside of the card. I love how this card turned out. I love the intricate cuts on this card.

Thank you for joining me today for this post. It was a great getting this card ready for the card party. And, I love sharing what I do with you. Thank you for your sweet-sweet words of encouragement. Your comments continue to inspire me.

Have a blessed day.

My Take On the Anna Griffin Card On Design Studio


Good morning. This is Sheila and I am so excited to share this card with you today. This card was made from Cricut's Design Space and if you would like to make this card look for a lavender card. I did not have the flourishes so I made my own. Nor did I have the tags so I made them on my own and stamped them with a phrase that worked for my purpose.


This is a close up of the front of the card so you can see the papers I chose along with the embossed lace frame from Anna Griffin's line. Don't you just love the embossing?



This card was a lot to put together with the two flowers , but you just have to love the look of the card. I sure hope you enjoyed this video.


Don't you just love this card? It is so bright and cheery that it makes this encouragement card perfect for the receiver.


Another close up of the card enabling you to see the beautiful leaves on this card.


Here is a close up of the inside of the card. The stamps were from CTMH. I hope you enjoyed today's post. Thank you for your sweet-sweet words of encouragement. Your comment continue to inspire me. Have a blessed day.
