Mixed Media project - Wine o'clock

Here's my "Cricut meets Mixed Media" project for this week.

You have to look closely to see where I used my Cricut in this one.  Behind the "It's wine o'clock somewhere" text you'll see a stencilled clock face.  I used an image from Design Space (image #M3CB55.) It's from the Edge to Edge cartridge and is included in Cricut Access.

I also used Design Space to create my Print then Cut sentiment. To make sure my text is the correct size I take a photo of my project and upload it into Design Space. I set the size of the image to be the same as the actual project (in this case my book is 12" x 9" when open) then add my text and size it accordingly.

I add white rectangles behind my text, then flatten the text to the rectangles to do the Print then Cut.  Sometimes I just stop at the printing step and cut the rectangles by hand.

Lots of Tim Holtz Distress inks in this project, as well as his Wine Blueprint stamp set.

I recorded a step by step video of the process. I think editing and uploading the video took longer than it did to create the project! ☺

Please let me know if you have any questions.  Don't forget to head over to my Facebook group to check out our other "Cricut meets Mixed Media" projects.
