Sneak Peek and Update

Hello Crafters! I know it has been awhile since I posted a tutorial but it has been a little hectic...funny how life can get that way. My craft studio is finally getting organized; I decided to move to a different room which is more secluded. This will help when making videos.

I wanted to share with you before I made any changes but I have finally decided to change the name of my blog to Kimberly Michelle Designs. I have struggled with this decision for sometime and finally decided to take the plunge. I just want my blog name relate to me personally. Plus, I will be creating more designs to share with, such as, digital backgrounds that can be used in Cricut Design Space. I will also be creating a little craft series like Quick tip videos and posts...I have too many ideas and not enough time. Also, I will be doing some live YouTube videos to show how to make a project like a one page mini album that I have been really wanting to share with you.

I wanted to give you a sneak peek of what I am working on now. I am working on creating split cards...I am obsessed with these. Here is a little video and pictures of cards I have made.

Be sure you are subscribed for email notifications of my blog posts and my YouTube channel. Here is the link:

See you soon and Happy Crafting!

Masculine Birthday Card

Hi All! I was going through my craft photos and found one I had not shared before. And since I have not had a chance to post any crafty goodness (I am finally getting settled in my new craft room) lately I thought I would share this card I made for my Dad.

Wild About You Valentine Card featuring Miss. Kate Cutables

Hello, all! I am excited to share a Valentine's Day card with you. And it is my pleasure to be guest designing for Miss. Kate Cuttables. When I found that I would be creating this card for the month of February I knew exactly what I wanted to create. This card features the following cut files from Miss. Kate Cuttables: Zoo Fun Bundle, Wild About You title, and Nested Hearts.

I include all the measurements for this cute little critter peek-a-boo card. I included a process video (at the end of this post) which shows how I assembled my card. If you would like to see a tutorial on how to create a peek-a-boo card in Cricut Design Space leave a comment. I hope you enjoy!

This card measures 5" x 7" and I used a kraft cardstock for my card base. It is a larger card but I think a child would love this cute critter card.

I used my Cricut Explore for all the die cutting and Cricut Design Space to create the design. These files include a JPEG, PNG, and SVG so that it can be used with most electronic die cutting machines. I created a single panel (left) from kraft cardstock; I find this makes creating dimensional cards easier to assemble. The pink card is my main panel where my little critters come to life. I lined up a heart from the Nested Heart file which created this peek-a-boo frame.

These are the hearts that I created from the Nested Heart file. They are the same size as the heart cut outs on the main panel. I used embossing folders to add texture. It is amazing what a difference this made. These hearts measure 2.19" x 1.95". Using my main pink panel as a template I adhered the hearts to the kraft panel; I show this process in the video.

I wanted to add a layered accent panel for the front of my card. I used the Straight and Slim font in Cricut Design Space to write 'Valentine'. I offset the cream cardstock to the right (when layering; see above photo) to create interest.

For my sentiment I used the Wild About You title. I love all the layers with this sentiment. I used my Xyron Create-A-Stick to adhere the words to the shadow. The title measures 2.4" x 2.3". And it includes some fun tropical leaves.

I just smile when I look at these little critters which are from the Zoo Fun Bundle. I used the PNG file that is included in the bundle and the Print then Cut feature in Cricut Design Space to create my critters. I used Glossy Accents on the eyes and nose to bring them to life.

Here is the process video or watch on YouTube:

It was my please to create this card for Miss. Kate Cuttables; be sure to visit her store for awesome cut files.

Happy Crafting,

Where did January go?!

Hello, all! I can't believe January has come and is almost gone. It has been a busy month and I have not had much time for crafting. But I do have some exciting news. I have been asked to be a Miss Kate Cuttables Guest Designer. My project will be published on February 3rd; I also created a process video showing how I assembled my project. I have some other projects that I am working on and will be sharing with you soon - this will include some Cricut Design Space cut files. I pray and hope all is well in your life.

Happy Crafting,
