As I mentioned a couple weeks ago I have teamed up with Jennipher over at Christian Paper Crafts for some Cricut fun. You know I love my hybrid cards (1/2 cricut + 1/2 A Muse Studio) and this one sure was fun. Last week Jennipher started the "Life's a Beach" exploration with Title Words, so this week it is my turn to explore the layers function. As long as you leave the "real dial size" button off this is a really fast and easy function. I chose to work with the sailboat. I cut the base at 4" from blueberry paper and then hit the layers function and cut it 2.5 more times. Once in blueberry gingham, once in latte woodgrain and then for the .5 I took a small scrap of cherry and place it where the "flag" had been cutting (it is one of the first cuts) and once cut I paused the machine and unloaded the mat. I always use my xyron sticker maker to adhesive all the parts I cut with my cricut. So I assembled all the layers and doubled up the dimensionals on the boat part and single layered the sails. I used the Sweet Stop Sketch as my layout. I love how well the cricut image coordinates with the A Muse Studio cloud dies. I will be exploring the layers feature on this cartridge for the rest of the week so stop back for more exciting projects and even another video!!
