So I have been struggling for creative time, trying to figure out some new fun thing to inspire me and guess what? I found inspiration in some decorations our neighbor was creating for her daughter’s birthday! She is having a pink ladybug party and I thought… I wonder if I can make a ladybug with the ScanNCut?
the usual disclaimer here that I work with Brother, but all ideas & opinions here are always my own. Love their products!
One of the things I love doing – which I recently did with a tote bag and eyeball design- is coming up with ways to combine ScanNCut basic patterns to make cool intricate ones. It is so very easy! You can find my tutorial on YouTube here.
The basic how-to?
- Pick your pattern pieces
- Re-size/overlap them on the ScanNCut screen
- Select all of the pieces
- “Weld” the pattern which will remove all overlapping cuts
- Cut it out!
I am just loving how this turned out, and how cute it is! Just two pieces of cardstock and a bit of time on the ScanNCut had me creating and excited so quick that I am going to make her a few extra (bigger) ones for party decor!
I really do love when an idea comes together and busts you out of your “what should I make?” slump! This one sure did and I can’t wait to get jumping on more projects ASAP! But first – a few more ladybugs!
I’m here getting ready for fall, sending kids back to school, and digging through chaos but I’m excited about all of the new ideas I am going to be sharing with you! Do you have a shape or animal to challenge me to create next? Do tell!
