Welcome to Tip Thursday. I'm Melissa, nickname "Sunshine HoneyBee", an independent Close To My Heart CTMH Consultant/Maker, and I want to share some tips I have learned in a weekly tutorial named Tip on Thursday.


Please check out my CTMH site and order wonderful items like what I use. Please let me know if you found this helpful. If you know of any corrections that need to be made please let me know.

Today, I want to show you how to use Cricut CTMH Art Philosophy to make a background postage stamp shape to go with the CTMH Sending Love Postage stamp. This will be in 2 parts. First part will cover the Cricut and 2nd part will cover a tip on stamping using negative cut (next Thurs 2/4)

Screen shots show how to retrieve the postage stamp image, #M450F2, from Cricut Art Philosophy and size it (2" x 2") to be a background for CTMH Sending Love Postage stamp.
