Go Big or Go Home!~

NSD1 Blog Button

Welcome to Day 2 of our Circleville NSD Online Event and to my first challenge, Go Big or Go Home!

The challenge is to use an oversized photo or title or both on your project.

How easy is that?!

And with your Cricut or any other die cutting machine making a BIG title is super easy.

For my layout I chose to use both.

And to be totally honest my 8.5 x 11 picture turned out to be a bit larger than I thought. Yikes!

You’d think the measurements would mean something to me, but they didn’t.

Especially since I like to double mat my layouts.

Anyway, that’s why CCR really helped with making my title the perfect size.

Once I had my title ready to go I cut it using my new Cricut Mini.

I am seriously loving this machine.

As you can see I used the negative space and added buttons and goosebumps to embellish it.

My layout~


Now some of you might have an idea of how I got this title, but I assure you that it comes from Hartly’s new favorite song by Olly Mars.

It’s not my fault that it’s also an accurate description.

Now for you card only makers I used the same process to make a BIG titled card.

See how easy that is!
