Update on prior posts

Yay! I am so happy to be able to reveal the pics of the sneak-peek. I previously posted a card for a special someone & a sneak peek of a project I had worked on and now that I know it arrived safe & well I can say the recipient was Laura from Alilscrapofheaven. We participated in a captured fairy swap and it was truly so much fun to do, I was genuinely excited to send something in the mail & make a new scrapping friend in the process. (Did I mention it was my first swap?)
It was an altered & multi-medium piece, and I think that what I enjoyed most about it was that I got to use several of my favorite things. I love to draw & paint, so I started by designing the fairy & painting her in watercolors. I also made her wings myself so that they would match perfectly. Then I used mod-podge, acrylics, bling, beads, pearls, lace, and paper to make the rest of the embellishments for the bottle. I also used the cricut to cut the big flowers on it.
The tag was my own design, and on it I added small flowers I hand-painted, as well as a felt bird and a butterfly on back.  I hope you like the pics!

Mermaid Pop Up card using Cricut Design Space 3

Thank you for stopping by!
In this video tutorial you will learn how use Cricut Design Space 3, Print & Cut, and other little details to make a stand-out Mermaid card for any occasion!

There are 3 videos total.

 In the 1st you will learn how to add a Pop-Up element, using Score lines with Cricut Design Space, and shapes available in the Cricut Access library.



In the 2nd video, you will learn how to Add Text to personalize your card.
***Key points are to always EDIT in groups, allowing yourself to work in sections. Once your text looks as you like:  Select the entire text box, flatten it, then attach it to your shape. It will automatically cut your shape and keep your text as a print option.***

The 3rd video will explain assembly, as well as the "Bleed" option to printing your shapes. I hope you enjoy learning how to use all of these awesome elements in Cricut Design Space3. Please leave me feedback, or a link to where I can see what you have created!

Hope Frame with Bible Verse

I was inspired to write this Bible verse to go along with this picture frame and Hope banner. It can be found in Psalm 31: 24, and it reads: "Be strong and take heart all you who hope in the Lord." Suffering from any type of cancer is devastating, and the words of David in what is one of the most beautiful books of the  Old Testament can really shed some light into a relationship in which the only comfort that really made a difference was the one promised by our very maker. If you, or someone you know is suffering from this horrible disease, my hope is that you find comfort not only in your surroundings and those you know, but also in the love of our God, just as David did in the darkest moments of his life.
For this project I used the Cricut to make the banner and flowers. I hand-painted the Bible verse and background with watercolors, color pencils, and ink. TFL!
I'll also be sharing this over at Link up for Pink.
