Today I have a quick tutorial video for you showing two different ways to cut multiple layer images on only one mat. Hope you enjoy!
I had a lot of fun making today's card. First of all, this adorable image is from my favorite SVG site, misskatecuttables.com and it was FREE! Every day you can download a free image from the site and this was the image from Saturday. I loved it and immediately started to make a card. He has many layers to cut which is what makes him so dimensional, however, you can also flatten him into a Print then Cut in Cricut Design Space. I went for the gusto though and cut out all his adorable layers, using Close to my Heart cardstock of course, and put him together. The snowy background was made using the Charming Cascades stamp set from Close to my Heart. I stamped it in VersaMark ink and then heat embossed it using white embossing powder. I wasn't sure how it would turn out but I think it looks exactly like snow! The Noel banner was made using the writing feature on my Cricut Explore. I love that you can make your own sentiment when you can't find anything that fits perfectly on your card.
For more information on Miss Kate Cuttables, check out my youtube video where I tell you all about it including instructions for how to upload your images into Cricut Design Space.
Today I have a video for you showcasing two of my favorite sites to purchase SVG files from. Each of these sites also offers free images that you can download and use in Cricut Design Space as cuttable of printable images. The two sites I mention are svgcuts.com and misskatecuttables.com. Hope you enjoy the video!

A few months ago I made this invitation to send to my mom, sister-in-law, and niece inviting them to an authentic English tea party (well sort of authentic). I used Cricut Design Space to design the card and decided to try writing out the invitation as well as the envelope using my Cricut Explore and my Cricut Explore Variety Pen Set in black. I was so pleased at how it turned out. I could never in a million years write an invitation that neatly and I love the cursive font. It made the invitation look so formal and pretty (the black blurs were to mask the address). The invitation was a hit and the tea party was so much fun. I highly recommend throwing one yourself. We had scones, jam, and clotted cream that I was able to order off of Amazon along with cucumber sandwiches that were yummy.

Tomorrow on the blog, I have a garden themed scrapbook layout.
It's getting to be that time of year! Well, I know I'm quite early with Halloween projects but with the start of September comes a new Close to my Heart featured paper packet called Nevermore. The packet features 6 12 x 12 B & T (background and texture) Duos (2 each of 3 designs) along with 6 12 x 12 Cardstock Sheets in coordinating colors. Everything you need to make beautiful layouts for only $9.95. This price and the fact that you receive everything in one packet to create scrapbook layouts is what drew me to Close to my Heart. I could not find this anywhere for that price. I've used their products ever since!
Today's project features a spooky coffin box that you could use as a decoration for Halloween (think multiple boxes stacked on end) or to hold sweet treats. The box was made using the Close to my Heart Cricut Artiste cartridge. The cute decoration on top was made using a background sized down to fit from the new Cricut Artistry cartridge. Turned out so cute!

Tomorrow's project features a Halloween scrapbook layout. Be sure to check it out!
Today I've made a video on how to use image codes in Cricut Design Space to prepare a Close to my Heart's Workshops on the Go. I struggled with having to scroll through all of the cartridge images to find what I was looking for. After searching on the web, I came across a blog by The Non-Crafty Crafter. She had all of the image codes available for the Close to my Heart cartridges and even published a copy of the handbooks with the codes in them! I was ecstatic to have these and it made finding these images quick and easy. Please make sure to check out her blog. It's a wonderful resource for all things Cricut. Please check out my video below. Please be sure to give me a thumbs up and subscribe to my YouTube Channel if you enjoy it!

Thanks for visiting with me this week!
Whoa! Two times in one week I have used the Cricut Make It Now program. I have a small tea party coming up with my family and I was looking for a cute little box to put some party favors in for those who attend. I wanted something cute and girly and I happened to find this while browsing through the Cricut Make It Now program in Cricut Design space. I thought it was perfect and it was quick and easy to make. I, of course, used Close to my Heart products to make the box and it came out adorable!
This project only took three products to make. Unbelievably easy! Hope you like.
Here are the Close to my Heart Products I used to make the project:
For today's project, I decided to explore the Cricut Make it Now projects in Cricut Design Space. I found some adorable Disney scrapbook layouts and decided to create this one to showcase my niece from a trip to Disney World last year. All of the pieces except the waves were made using the print and cut feature in Cricut Design Space and I thought the layout turned out beautifully! Can't wait to get the perfect picture on here.
Here are photos of how I found this layout in Cricut Design Space. First I chose the category "Photo Memories".
Then I scrolled down until I found the Little Mermaid Project. As you can see, there are several adorable layouts to choose from.
This project literally took me 15 minutes to make. You can't beat that! I am definitely going to take advantage of this function more then I have in the past.
All of the papers I used to make this project are from Close to my Heart.
Make sure you stop by tomorrow where I'll feature another scrapbook layout made using the Cricut Artistry cartridge and the featured paper packet of the month, Zoe.
