I started in Cricut Design Space 3.0 Beta and sliced out the “heart 2 travel” USA image. I then duplicated the image and used the contour feature to hide all of the icons within the image to create a solid USA shape. For the other image I used the contour feature to hide all of the icons but the heart. I then positioned the heart onto the solid USA image approximately in the area where we live. I sliced the heart through the solid USA image. I then duplicated the image and set one of the cut files to cut and one of the cut files to write. You will find a step by step Cricut tutorial in my process video at the bottom of this post.
I drew the cut file image on a sheet of white cardstock using one of my Cricut pens and used blue & pink embroidery floss to hand stitch and create string art. I cut the second USA image on a sheet of patterned paper from the Pinkfresh Studio Dream On Collection. I adhered the patterned paper to the white cardstock string art USA image.
The theme for my layout today is all about our home. I took a photo of our house and printed it twice using my Instax Share Printer. I positioned the photos on top of the string art using liquid adhesive. I then used multiple embellishments from the Pinkfresh Studio Dream On Collection, including chipboard, leatherette stickers, and die cuts. For final touches I added black splatters using Heidi Swapp Black Color Shine.
I was so excited to win the entire Dream On Collection from a Pinkfresh Studio Instagram giveaway and this collection was the inspiration for this entire layout! I loved all the house die cuts and patterned papers. Andy and I moved into this house right after we were married and I’ve never documented our home! Probably because I didn’t have any photos of just our home! I went out and snapped this photo right before I put the layout together! HA!
Now you can take a look at my process video for this layout which include a Cricut Design Space Tutorial using the new 3.0 beta software.
