   Hello, my friends!

It’s Nancy here with you today!

 I’m sharing a tutorial on how I put this art journal page together,
using some great cut files from the shop! 
Here’s my page:

Ocean themed art journal page using Life is the Bubbles SVG Cut File with Cricut

Here’s how I made it:

I began by sprinkling some watercolor powders onto my art journal page.
I spritzed it with water, until I had the look I wanted.
I then set it aside to dry.

I then went to Cricut Design Space and uploaded:
Beach Sea Shells Monogram Frame SVG File;
Life is the Bubbles SVG Cut File Title

On my canvas in CDS, I inserted the Title into the Frame, and sized it to fit on my journal page.

I then used the Print then Cut feature to cut out my design.

Now I come back to my colored journal page.It’s important that the journal page be completely dry before adding the cut file. Otherwise things won’t stick properly.
Isn’t that sparkle pretty? :o)

Now…here’s a trick to make the positioning of the cut file very simple: I remove my paper from the mat, leaving the cut design in place on the mat.

I position the paper in place on my journal page, exactly where I want to add the design.

Then it’s as simple as putting a puzzle together.
I take a piece of the design off of my mat,
and adhere it in place on my journal page.
Just use your favorite adhesive for this.

Here’s my page with the design perfectly positioned!

 I added a nice coat of glossy accents to each of the bubbles. 
It adds some lovely shine to go with all the background sparkle.

Finally, I added some sequins in a variety of colors!

Americana Mermaid Wall Hanging

Americana Mermaid Wall Hanging

Hey everybody! Leslie here and thanks for joining me on the blog today. I’m so stoked to be a new Printable Cuttable Creatables DT member – this is another dream come true for this old gal!

I’m all about Americana and anything red, white and blue, and I grew up seeing live mermaid shows at the Weeki Wachee Springs Attraction (in central FL), so my debut inspiration project is a combination of the two. I created a fun wall hanging featuring the Mermaid in the USA SVG file, Mermaid Tail SVG file, and red plaid digital paper from the Christmas Patterns Digital Paper Mega Bundle. Yep, you read that right… Christmas paper isn’t just for Christmas! 😉

Cut the Pieces

Cut all the pieces in the Mermaid in the USA SVG file in red, white, blue and gold glitter cardstock, sorted by color, as per the instruction sheet included in the SVG file.

Print the Digital Paper

Print the red plaid digital paper from the Christmas Patterns Digital Paper Mega Bundle. This versatile paper pack can be used for non-holiday projects, too!

Assemble the Wall Hanging

Trim the digital paper and adhere it to a sturdy 8×8 cardstock panel. Adhere all the pieces as per the instruction sheet included with the SVG file. I ended up adding a layered wave from the Mermaid Tail SVG file at the bottom which I had not originally planned. Punch two holes at the top for a ribbon hanger.

Add a Ribbon Hanger

The final step is adding a red, white and blue grosgrain ribbon hanger with knots tied on the ends.

Thanks again for stopping by today, and we’ll see you next time!

Scrappy hugs,
