Hi Guys! Come on in and see what I’m doing today! I’m making an SVGCuts Conversation Heart Garland from their Valentines SVG Collection.
Above is a screen shot of Cricut Design Space. The hearts with the text on them came in an svg file that I uploaded into CDS. However, I wanted a layer underneath to make it more readable (personal preference). So . . . I duplicated (top right tool bar) one of the hearts, used the contour button (bottom right tool bar) and took out the text, leaving just the shape. Then I duplicated the outline shape to make one for each heart – these are on the right side of the work space.
Hmmm, using the contour button on a project like this, I could put my own sayings on the hearts, as well. Oooooo, the possibilities . . .
Here are the cut out conversation heart pieces. I used Close To My Heart cardstock in Lemon, Cotton Candy, White Daisy, Glacier, Sweet Leaf, Tangerine, and Thistle.
This is a close up of one of the assembled hearts. Isn’t it funny how just a little thing, like the curved line, gives a two-dimensional layer of paper a three-dimensional look?
Dimensionality is one of the things I love about paper crafting . . .
I attached the hearts to a long piece of twine with my mini stapler. I staple my pieces on because tape just doesn’t hold them.
Here’s the finished Conversation Heart Garland. I LOVE how cute this is!!
99.9% of my svg files come from SVGCuts – they ARE my favorite. They ALWAYS work, their details are amazing, they have assembly videos, and they are reasonably priced. Try them out, you won’t be disappointed.
