Learn how to turn one-colour images into beautiful multi-layered designs using the Contour tool in Cricut Design Space.
If you're new to Design Space, you'll want to start with this lesson as it teaches the key tools we'll be using for the rest of the projects. It's the perfect introduction to creating layered cardstock designs!
It's not just text that you can use Offset on! Learn how to apply it to images - and even to multiple layers all at once.
We'll take three different images and use the Offset tool in three separate ways.
I bet you'll never have guessed this little Design Space button was so powerful!
Make your own perfect wall decor craft projects! Craft along with me to make a layered wolf shadow box design.
The techniques you'll learn in this lesson can then be used to make ANY theme of shadow box, for ANY occasion.
Let's level-up our shadow boxes by creating the 3D levels inside the shape of another image, instead of simply putting them into a square.
Learn the KEY differences between designing a shadow box to be cut from coloured cardstock vs one that's lit up with LED/fairy lights.
Make easy greetings cards for all occasions. Creating personalized greetings cards for family and friends is the perfect way to show how much you care for them.
This is one of the most popular lessons in Lovely Layering! We'll even add a score line to make the cards easy to fold.
Add your initial to a shadow box and create a stepped shadowing effect with a custom pattern.
Personalized home decor never got so easy! Whoever it's for... you can make them something unique.
Layered letters were the first things I ever made when I first got my Cricut, so I LOVE teaching these lessons!

Take everything learnt in the previous video and expand on it! Add custom patterns inside letters, create filigree backgrounds and add images to the top.
The end results are nothing short of stunning. 🤩
Make a custom clock that really works!
See how to position the numbers so that they look even around the edge of the clock, and add fun designs to the middle.
I bet you never thought you could make THIS with your Cricut...
Stretch the same layered design across multiple, separate letters to build a fun and unusual word scene.
Word scenes look wonderful mounted in a long, thin frame, or even stuck directly onto a wall - particularly in nurseries or children's playrooms.
Instead of building letters that "pop" outwards... how about building the layers INWARDS instead?
This is another lesson using the trusty Offset tool in Design Space.
Make custom layered inset shadow boxes in just a couple of minutes.
This is the same sort of thing as the previous lesson, but this time it's when your original image doesn't have thick outlines on it.
The steps needed to turn this type of image into a layered one is a little different, but it's still totally possible to do!
Before we can start turning photographs into layered designs, we need to do a few little tweaks to them to make them easier to convert.
Here's how to remove backgrounds from photographs so that we can focus on crafting just the key elements of the photograph composition.
Now that we've removed the background from our photo, we can cut it out!
Here's how to turn a photo into a silhouette and then add it into a shadow box with a mandala background.
Perfect for wedding photos and anniversary or Valentine's Day gifts!
Shh... don't tell anyone, but this is a VINYL based lesson... not cardstock...
Turn a photograph into a one-layer SVG file that's suitable for cutting from vinyl... or cardstock, of course.
(This Lesson uses free third-party software, not Design Space. Don't worry, it's really easy to use!)
Use the same computer program from the previous lesson to turn your favourite family photos into layered greyscale designs.
The different shades of grey make your photos look super-realistic when cut from cardstock.
Don't like the look of the greyscale designs? Use Design Space to turn it back into colour!
This process takes a little while to complete, but once it's finished, you'll have a stunning full-colour cardstock replica of your original photograph.

Got lots of images that you want to turn into one? See how to do that here!

See how to make up the circular base to your wreath and then add flowers and other decorations, including how to merge the same colours together to make large, easy-to-stick layers.
Giant Off-the-Mat Signs
The course ends with something impressive! Design giant signs that go as big as your dreams...
I usually make them around 25-28 inches wide for a papercraft that REALLY packs a punch.
We'll split the bottom pieces into sections so that they can still be cut out on a regular Cricut cutting mat from 12x12, US Letter or A4 cardstock.
