Holla!!  It's January.  I feel like time is going SO fast!!  It'll be summer before we know it!  Anyway...  Are you loving the new Mini Catalog?


Hi.  Hello.  I am in love with the new wooden embellishments AND the word bubble framelits.

I created these adorable hearts using my Silhouette Cameo.  Here is how you can create the same thing:
  1. Create a rectangle that will be the size you'd like your top layer to be cut.  Mine is 3.25" x 4.75".
  2. Import the heart from the Bookstagram MDS download into your program.
  3. Resize your heart to be .25" wide.
  4. Open your trace window  photo 01-14SubtractionTuted_zpsaedafcc0.jpg
  5. Click Select Trace Area
  6. Then click Trace Outer Edge
    You should have a red outline around your heart.
    You can move your black heart out of the way.
  7.  Click the red outline of the heart and create several duplicates.  I just placed them randomly all over the square.  I made sure to have some hearts go outside of the square too.A photo 01-14SubtractionTuteacopy_zps3ac724a7.jpg
  8. Click the Select arrow on your toolbar.
  9. Draw a square around your rectangle with hearts in it.
  10. Your rectangle and all the hearts should have outlines around them.B photo 01-14-Subtraction-Tute-b_zps0f2e65a7.png
  11. Click the Open the Modify Window.
  12. Click the Subtract option.
  13. Your screen should look like this:C photo 01-14SubtractionTuteccopy_zps44960c5b.jpg
  14. Now you can cut your project.
If you saw this post earlier you're probably thinking,"Wasn't there some twine on this card that looked like a guppy fish?"  Yes, there was, but I had to fix it.  I just couldn't stand it. Yay!

Are you wondering what I did with all the cute little hearts that were cut out?  They're on the inside of the card, of course.
