Cricut Design Space Color Changing

 
COLOR CHANGE
 
First I will show you how to change the color. Then I will show you how to make sure that all of your light pink or grey or whatever color you choose will cut from the same piece of paper.
If you don't want to have to put in 5 different shades of light pink, you can EASILY change all of them to the same shade of light pink to ensure that they will all cut out of the same ONE piece of light pink.

First how do you change the color. Lets say something is red and you want to make it light pink....
Select the image. Shown below. On the right side you can see the image selected. If you hover over the image on the right a color box will pop up.
 
 
 
 
Here you can select another color by clicking on it
 
 
 
 
Now you can see that the color has been changed.
 
 
 
 
If you want to make sure that all of your LIGHT PINK (or color of choice) will cut out on the same page and not three different one, Select SYNC as circled
. You will then see all of your images and each ling shows a different color.
 
 
 
 
 
To change the color to match, just drag and drop the shape you want onto the line that you want. It then makes them the same shade/color and you can cut them all on one sheet of that color of paper.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Now I have all the same pink and all of the same grey.

Getting Stuff to stick to glitter paper



OK what is the trick to get your adhesive to stick to glitter paper?
Well the trick is that you don't stick anything to the top of the glitter paper.... You cut a "keyhole" in it for your adhesive to stick to the layer BELOW the glitter paper.
 
Why would you want anything to stick to glitter paper?
Well if you are creating a project like this one, where the black glitter is on the top layer... you don't need this tip. In this example the black is the glitter paper and the top layer.
 So you put adhesive on the back and stick it to the project and you have nothing to worry about.

My Cricut Craft Room

Let's just say that you wanted the Orange around the owl to be glitter paper, which is the base layer of the owl. How do you do that? Simple... cut a hole in it.  
This also works for photo matting. (See below)
 
I call this the "Keyhole technique"

Take your finished shape. Without the glitter paper layer attached.
Look at the area where you want to put something on top of the glitter paper (First image)
Take your glitter paper and a paper punch and punch out a shape (any shape)
As long as it will be covered by the top layers wen you finish your image.
 
 
 
Or fold your shape in half and cut a circle or any shape out of it...
Then unfold your image and it is ready to go.
 
 
 
What next?
Use adhesive on the back of your glitter paper to secure it to wherever you want it to stay...
Then apply adhesive to the back of the next layer that you want to put on it.
The idea is that there is a hole in the glitter paper and now you can use that hole for your adhesive to stick to the base.
So if you are using Design Space or Cricut Craft Room, you can put any shape in the middle of an image before you cut it out of glitter paper. Or you an do it after with a paper punch or scissors.
