I started in Cricut Design Space and sliced out the portion of the cut file I was wanting to use. If you're new to Cricut Design Space, using the "Slice" feature is how you will separate the images within the cut file set so you only have to cut the portion of the cut file you are wanting to use. I then resized the image to 11.5" because I wanted the cut file image to be a main focal point on my layout. I used the Print Then Cut feature within Cricut Design Space to size and print my photos into the star shapes.
I added a little mixed media behind the cut file, then I added hand stitching using blue embroidery floss around the cut file image, and created a visual triangle of embellishments to help your eye dance around the page.
Now you can check out my process video that has a Cricut Design Space tutorial showing you how I used the Print Then Cut feature to size and print my photos!!
