CRICUT: Twist Pop-up Panel card

In my Cricut Explore and More Facebook group I recently shared a free Design Space file for the popular Twist Pop-up Panel card.

 


I did a Live assembly in the group and you can see the recording of that video here: https://www.facebook.com/narelle.darley/videos/g.1695742967349103/10154641343811742/?type=2

If you need supplies now is a great time to grab them. The Cricut cardstock price has dropped even further. ($4 for 20 sheets in the single colours). It's the best cardstock for your die cutting machine out there (in my opinion). It cuts so well in the Explore.


My favourite is the glitter cardstock. ($4 for 10 sheets in the single colours.) I purchased two of the sampler packs and some of the single colours. I love the white... just wish I'd bought that in the single colour. It's great for using on Christmas backgrounds. If you purchase, make sure you use my discount code NARELLE to get 15% off your purchase and receive free Fedex Home Delivery in the USA and Canada.

If you're shipping outside the US (eg through HopShopGo) your shipping will be free to that US address.

CRICUT: Design Space 3 Beta Previews

You might have heard that a new version of Design Space is currently undergoing Beta testing.

Today I am authorised to show you some previews of some of the upcoming changes.

Design Space 3 is much easier to navigate than the current version. You're going to find it much more responsive in many ways.  I have very slow internet and DS3 runs so much faster for me than DS2.

Here's some of the changes you can expect to see.


  • First, the Edit Panel has been moved to the top of the screen. This means that it is always available. 

No more moving between the Edit Panel and the Layers Panel.





  • The Layers Panel has had a slight makeover.  You'll see a coloured dot on each layer to indicate the selected colour of that layer.
  • And if you click on one of the layers you can instantly see which colours are currently being used in that project. No more having to remember which colours you used. 





  • Uploading file is so much faster now! And to help with that there's now a Drag & Drop feature. Just click on a file from your computer and drag it to the Design Space upload screen and drop it! 




  • The font preview screen has been enlarged. Now it's super easy to see what a font looks like.  




  • DS3 is written in HTML instead of Adobe Flash.  Shockwave crashes are a thing of the past. 


  • The Isolate letters feature has been changed to Ungroup to Letters.  Once you have ungrouped your text to letters you can still edit that text and change fonts on individual letters. 




  • You can also ungroup multiple lines of text into individual lines.  This is much quicker than creating a text box for different lines of text. 





  • Finding your saved projects is easy. Either click on the My Projects button on the canvas or click on the Projects button and select it from the Categories list. 





  • Speaking of your projects - they now have a preview! You don't have to guess what they look like anymore. 




  • Sometimes you realise you need to move images around on a mat after you've started cutting. Now you can!  Just click on the mat you want to change then click Edit Mat.




There's a lot to love about Design Space 3.  There's currently no indication of when it will be released and I can't give you any more details of the features yet. But from a performance point of view it's certainly going to be worth the wait!

Four step stair card

Today in my Facebook group (Cricut Explore and More) I'm sharing a cut file and assembly video for a Christmas version of a four step stair card.

Here's the inside of the card.



Images used on the inside are all Cricut images that are included in Cricut Access. They are:

Fireplace: A Quilted Christmas - Image number #M3BD1A
Elf & Gift: Create a Friend - Image number #M431EC
NOEL: Home for the Holidays - Fall & Winter - Image number #M40622
Font - Kyden writing font (available in Design Space only)
Rudolph: 3D Rudolph head - Image number #M432CA
Base and shapes - free images from Design Space


Here's the front of the card


This image is a SVG from Apex Cuttable Designs. You can purchase the image here: http://apexembdesigns.com/cuttables/product/save-santa-be-naughty-christmas-cuttable-designs



Here's a couple of close ups of the inside of the card




I used lots of the features in Design Space for this card. Slicing, welding, duplicating, attaching, flattening.   I'll be releasing a video soon of how I used all those features.

You can get my free Design Space file (which doesn't include the "Save Santa - be naughty" image) in my Facebook group Cricut Explore And More

You can find the assembly video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=prYbrvY5ts4
