I started by “slicing” the cut file image apart in Cricut Design Space. I enlarged the arrows and rotated them slightly on the design screen for this fun tilted design! Once I had the arrows positioned I used the “attach” feature to hold the placement before sending the cut file image to the cutting mat.
I backed the arrows with a pattern paper from the Shimelle-Little By Little Collection and added hand stitching using black embroidery floss to create a defined edge along each arrow to help them pop off the page. I positioned my photo at the same angle as the arrows and added a lot of Valentine themed embellishments, including products from the Crate Paper Hello Love & Heart Day Collections and clear American Crafts stickers.
This layout was so much fun to put together and I love how the back stitching adds so much emphasis to the arrows!
I’ve put together a YouTube process video that also includes a Cricut Design Space tutorial!
Thanks so much for joining me today and remember to head to The Cut Shoppe to check out all of the cut files and digital collections!
