Make A Number Shaped Card With A Font & Canvas Workspace For Computer

My Stampin Up Monthly Host Code is a way for me to reward anyone who places a qualifying order with me if enough people use it in the month. So please use the correct code at checkout in online shop (it changes on the 1st of every month)

So sometime ago I was asked how I made the No7 card that used to appear in my Youtube, blog and website banner.

The subject also came up in a recent Wednesday night Youtube live and Pat asked if I would record a video on how to do it, so here it is sorry for the wait, but I film and schedule most of my videos a head of time, so other things got in before this.

This is what I made Im not sure how well you will see but the blue number 18 has also been pierced using the SNC piercing kit.

This is not a beginner project, but if you follow along and take your time it is achievable. I hope you like it.

Hi everyone, who is up for a sketch challenge? You can use any product of your choice, it doesn’t have to be Stampin Up or be made with a ScanNCut, but if you have either you can of course use them.

I have made the first sketch fairly simple, see below.

  • The white is the base card (can be any size)
  • The diagonal section is pattern paper
  • The rest is up to your interpretation

Its just for fun so if you’re interested please send me a photo of your project by Saturday 23rd May 2020, You have just over a week. Im looking forward to see what you can all come up with.

If you take part I would like to post them on my blog if you are all ok with that.

Email Photos to me here please by Saturday 23rd May info@aandhcrafts.co.uk

Disney Fabric Projects, Live Zoom Sessions & A Competition

Hi everyone I hope you are all keeping well, here in the UK we are waiting to see what our prime minster has to say about future lockdown restrictions on Sunday, this is a very strange time we are living through.

All the days seem to blend into each other for me but I think we are in week seven. I have been keeping myself busy through out lockdown with Sunday and Wednesday night Youtube live streams and I want to thank everyone again who joins me, its fun learning and sharing our ideas together.

Ive also updated my ScanNCut Cutting File Shop which now has instant downloads available, I have some free files which many people have been downloading and I have some files that are for sale, again thank you to anyone who has purchased them and I hope you enjoy using them.

As some of you may know as well as keeping you all up to date with things going on here on my own blog, I also provide content for the Makers Superstore blog, in addition I am involved in their “May is for Makers” campaign.

We are hosting 4 Free Zoom sessions at 4pm UK time on the 4th, 11th, 18th & 25th of May, they are limited to 10 people and if you are interested please email – team@makersretail.co.uk to register.

We have a card, 3D project, home decor/gift type idea and a fabric project, so hopefully something for everyone.

In the first session last Monday I showed how to design and make this card in Canvas Workspace for PC and I provided the cutting and drawing file for anyone who wasn’t making along with us live.

If you would like to be in with a chance of winning a £50 credit to spend in their online store, Makers also have a competition running at the moment, the details are here. Share your make with them on Instagram using @makerssuperstore or email your make to them at team@makersretail.co.uk put “May is for making” in the subject heading. Good Luck.

This week Ive been sewing and having so much fun making things with some beautiful Disney fabrics available again from Makers Superstore Here. These are just a few things I have more ideas of things to make, I’ve missed sewing I’ve not really done any for such a long time.

These will be future Youtube videos Ive shared them on my Instagram but for anyone who doesn’t use that platform I thought I would show you here too. I love how they have turned out.

All the links to my social media platforms are on my website applelover53.co.uk Here if you want to follow me.

April Design Team Baltimore Quilt Block

Hi everyone, I hope you are all keeping well, I need to make an apology its completely my fault. I somehow forgot that I had Lynns design team project for April.

She has put together a PDF explaining the origins of the Baltimore quilt block and has created a project for you, showing how you can make your own design using shapes found in the machine and Canvas.

For anyone who doesn’t know what a Baltimore block is here is a photo. I think it looks great and if you are not confident enough to make a quilt, wouldn’t it be nice for the front of a cushion cover?

Lynns project can be found Here on the design team page of my website.

I think you would have to agree that, the projects so far have all been amazing and are teaching all of us new things.

So once again I apologise for messing up but hope you will enjoy reading through Lynns post it really is interesting to know the history behind these things.

How To Resize A Canvas Workspace Multi Mat Project

My Stampin Up Monthly Host Code is a way for me to reward anyone who places a qualifying order with me if enough people use it in the month. So please use the correct code at checkout in online shop (it changes on the 1st of every month)

In todays video I am showing you how I resized the Free Love Story Lamp project from Canvas Workspace, which I showed you how to cut several weeks ago in my Sunday night Youtube live at 5pm.

This project consists of several mats and some of the pieces would not fit on UK/US A4 card, so rather than having to cut those elements from 12×12 I resized the whole project in proportion to enable me to cut all sections from A4.

Its a little bit of a faff but once you have done it and saved your amended mats, you wont have to do it again.

This is the Canvas Project on the left and Mine on the right, if you didn’t catch me make it live, the video and blog post are further down, scroll and you should find it.

ScanNCut Foiling Kit

Hi everyone, I just want to say a quick thank you to everyone who has been joining me in my Youtube lives on Wednesday and Sunday evenings I started them as we went into lockdown as a way of us keeping in touch through our love of craft in these uncertain times.

They seem to be growing in popularity which is nice because that means we have more people to share our ideas with and more people are finding my youtube channel for help with the ScanNCut machine, no mater what model they own, so thank you once again for being there.

Now onto the foiling kit, I’ve had my kit a little while now and I’ve been playing about with it on and off and having fun with it.

This kit will be this Sunday’s youtube live so please join me, even if you don’t have the kit yet, you may still learn something.

If you have any questions you would like me to answer, please leave them below before Sunday and even if you cannot be at the live, they are always recorded so I can still answer your question and you can watch on reply.

Heres what I’ve been making so far using silver, gold, blue and white foil.

Download & Use Files From A Disney Activation Card

My Stampin Up Monthly Host Code is a way for me to reward anyone who places a qualifying order with me if enough people use it in the month. So please use the correct code at checkout in online shop (it changes on the 1st of every month)

In a previous video I showed you how to activate your ScanNCut Disney activation cards, in this video I am showing you how to download them and use them on your ScanNCut machine (any model).

The files on the activation cards are FCN format, we usually use FCM so the files do not open in Canvas Workspace.

If you dont know how to activate a card there is a link at the end of this video for you to go and watch how to do that, or look in the “Disney Playlist” on my channel.
