DIY Avengers Infinity Stones

Hey Crafty Friends!

Mr. Craftini Time and I are defiantly big Marvel fans.  So, we are extra excited to see the new Avengers Endgame movie this weekend. 🤓 We bought our tickets a couple of weeks ago and are ready 3 hours of excitement.  This post is a little late because we were not able to see the movie until Saturday, so we were on a social media blackout to avoid any spoilers.

I have been on a 3D paper craft project kick lately, so I wanted to make something 3D.  You can check out the Peeps Basket I made a couple of weeks ago for one of my Easter projects  here on the blog and the YouTube video here.

So, I went searching for a cut file that looked like the gems or some type of stones.  I came a crossed a couple in the Silhouette Design Store, I purchased both.  But, I found some issues with one of them after bringing them into Cricut Design Space and ended up going with this one – Design ID 145559.  I go into more details about the issues in the video project share below.  

There are 5 different color stones, so I used some glitter paper to create them.

You can check out how they came out below.

 

Hopefully, in the week or so, I will finish the  tutorial on how to bring in svg files purchased from the Silhouette Design Store into Cricut Design Space.  

Thanks for stopping by!

Importing svg files from Silhouette Design Store to Cricut Design Space

Hey Crafty Friends,

Today I wanted to discuss importing svg files from Silhouette Design Store (SDS) into Cricut Design Space (CDS).  I recently needed to create a birthday card with popcorn on it.  😊  While browsing through CDS, I quickly realized there were not many popcorn designs.  Now just a disclaimer…I love my Cricut machine and if there were a better selection of designs, I won’t even own a Silhouette machine.  But, the Silhouette Design Store features many more designs, from many more designers.  At one time I did have an Access Subscription, but I own lots of Cricut cartridges and I didn’t feel it was worth it.

In the past year or so the SDS has included an option to purchase the design file as an svg.  Prior to this, the design was in the Silhouette Design Software format and was not able to be imported into CDS.  There were a few workarounds to format it into an svg, but they were all very time consuming.

Now you can pay a little bit more and you can have both files.  No conversion needed.  Now on to the card.

For this card I used system fonts and flattened the wording to create a print and cut.  I imported the popcorn design, sized it up and cut it out.

I really like the way it came out.  ❤️ 🍿

Here is a quick project share video. Thanks for stopping by.

How to make Dino-mite! Shaped Cards in Cricut Design Space

Hey crafty people!

I wanted to make a quick, cute card for my August card swap.  So, of course, I headed over to Pinterest.  I LOVE Pinterest!  But, beware you may lose several hours of your life looking at pins that have nothing to do with what you were really looking for. lol

I find it is very hard to come up with cute cards for boys, or men for that matter.  When I found him, I knew I had to make him.

I added a screen recording to the YouTube video to show you how to create a simple shaped card.  It was my first time recording my screen, but I think it turned out ok.  If you have any questions feel free to reach out to me.

You can check out the video here:
