Making a knockout using Design Space

Last week, I saw a video tutorial on Facebook on how to do a knockout using the slice feature on Design Space. It looked pretty simple to do and IT WAS. I love how easy and neat this technique is. It is just a matter of placing the image over your text, slicing, removing the unwanted bits and then changing the colour of your initial slice. What I learned was, if you are using cuts that are small and finicky it's better to cut them larger. This is an A2 sized card and I had trouble glueing my hockey player so don't look too closely.

I need to make more cards using this technique.

Yay! October is here! I love Halloween!

Look closely at this layout. Notice anything?

There are no Cricut cuts. How did that happen???

Happy birthday window card

I would like to create some shadow box card files in Design Space for the upcoming card-making holiday season. This was my first step, a window card.

This card is for our daughter's 16th birthday which we celebrated in Toronto, Ontario and visited the CN Tower. (There are CN Tower free SVGs posted online for personal use.)

Purple paper ALS Walk

I don't use the colour purple very often on my layouts or cards, therefore, my ALS Walk photos are a great way to get creative with a colour I rarely scrap with.

This layout was a great destash of all the purple paper scraps I had!

Happy Canada Day 2018!

Welcome to my blog! I love spending Canada Day with my family! I'm THAT Mom that insists on matching shirts, photo ops and then scrapbooking them. Here is one such layout using the We Love Canada cuts on Design Space and the Oh Canada paper.

This layout actually started a few weeks ago, my daughter needed a large maple leaf cut out of paper for a school project. I kept the paper scraps or the negative image thinking maybe I could use it. (Anyone else do this? In my defence, it was nice cardstock...)

Have a wonderful day in Canada or elsewhere in the world!

Canada Day scrapbooking supplies 2018, eh

I am so excited to report this year that there are some new fabulous scrapbooking supplies to commemorate Canada Day! First up, I was playing on Design Space today and look what I found! A new cartridge called We Love Canada! There are only ten images but they are all great. It is included with my Access membership but I am assuming it's free for all next week.

Grab your Cricut and get cutting! Wouldn't these images be great on t-shirts for your family?

There are also 25 free Canada Day cuts on the LOVESVG website.

The next products are from Photo Play Paper Co designed by the talented Becky Fleck. There is a paper pack.

There are stickers, diecuts, stamps and matching dies.

So many great scrappy options this year! Be sure to celebrate our great nation, get out your phones, take some pictures on Canada Day and scrap 'em.

Card ideas for Dad's Day

It's two days before Father's Day and I have yet to make a card for the hubs. Maybe you are in the same boat and would like some inspiration?
