I’m taking a class in South Carolina…it’s called “Row of the Month”. It’s taught by my good buddy, Rachel. Anyhoooooo, several of the ladies were having trouble remembering how to paper piece so I decided to make them (and me) a video. Have you ever heard the saying that the best way to learn something is to teach it? Well…. that’s what I’m doing here for all of us.
Just wondering… do YOU love to paper piece? I do!!!
I’ve been having so much fun playing with paper and cardstock. I hope you’re joining us in our Facebook group (Cricut Design Space with PattyAnne) as it seems I’m able to post there more often than here at times.
For example, I recently posted my version of this beauty. The files for it are from the same link above were the free files are. Isn’t it adorable?
I am having a blast learning to make cute, Cute, CUTE party decorations (or wall decor) with my Cricut Explore machine. Since I didn’t want to have to glue a lot of little pieces, I made the majority of the kitty as a print and cut file and then added her nose and dress??? shorts??? as cut out pieces.
I think I’ll try another! Hmmmm whatever shall I try??? 🙂
Today I used an image from Cricut Access to make this lovely card. I did change the colors up a little bit because these are the colors that I had on hand. I really love using Cricut brand card stock because it just has such a nice texture and weight to it compared to the other card stock that I bought at Joann’s. With the Cricut card stock, everything cuts so sharply and cleanly AND it doesn’t CURL WHEN I REMVOVE IT FROM THE MAT!!
When I assembled this card, I made sure that the little brad did not go the whole way through the card but rather just through the doily and the second layer.
Next up I have to create an envelope for it.
In the meantime, I do have another video on YouTube that I made yesterday – take a look.
(I love being able to use files that I have and change them up into something new!)
Well, well well…… I have just become affiliated with Cricut. Mind you I will continue to give my honest opinion of their products (see for example my opinion of the ‘card’?? or whatever that thing is on my previous video).
That being said, I DID comment on LOVING Cricut cardstock on the above video PRIOR to becoming an affiliate BECAUSE I really do like the product….. a lot. Honestly.
Anyhooooo if you’d like to check out the products:
Hello again! My daughter and I are having so much fun playing with our new Cricut machines. I have some cardstock that is larger than 8.5 x 11 but my daughter doesn’t. ANYHOOO, she wants to create super fun LARGE decorations for the new craft room that her husband made for her (she’s sooo lucky!) AND, I think she wants to add some fun wall art to her precious twin babies’ rooms.
This image shows an example of using the smaller cardstock to create a larger image. In this case, the Hogwarts wall art is about 23″ wide.
Below the image is a tutorial. I hope it helps! Right now….at this moment…it is the best I know. 🙂
