Hi everyone, Gabriela here with a video tutorial about ways to use your PowderPuff Chalking Inks. I typically use inks for distressing edges, but there are many other ways to use them. I will be showing how to make a patterned background using a few paper stencils and some ink blenders.

So I am trying to get back into using my Cricut for projects and I finally started I using print & cut. I had some trouble getting it to work correctly because I use a Mac and it wouldn't read the registration marks. The fix was simple, I switched to Firefox for the browser and changed the print setting to best quality...and it works like a charm, it allowed me to make SO MANY things!!!  


This printed black and white and I used Copics to color it in.

Once it's colored in, it just sticks right on the Explore! I used images in my subscription and the printable vinyl from Cricut. 

How fun! 

How fun! 

Then I thought, could I print & cut my own artwork? YES!!! I used one of my favorite watercolor drawings I've done and made it into a cutout using the Design Space Software!  



Then a few seconds later... 

My Sonia all cutout and ready to go!

So this opens a ton of possibilities for making my own drawings and turning them into digital "stamps" that I can use over and over again. So I hope this inspires you to make your own art and decor. Happy Crafting!!! Next post is a metal die storage solution!
