How to Create Oversized Projects in Design Space

My little girl loves mermaids.  Ariel is her favorite princess.  Water is her playground.  And if she could, she'd be a rock-n-roll superstar.  Naturally, when we decided she needed a little bedroom upgrade, we settled on mermaids.  But how to get a giant mermaid on the wall in her room was the challenge.  Luckily, I went to a great class at the Cricut Mountain Make-a-Thon in July and we discussed some of the amazing oversized projects that can be done in Design Space .  I knew I could conquer this project.

Step 1
To start, I had to come up with the design.  I headed over to Design Space and searched for the perfect font and the perfect mermaid image.  Of course they had just what I was looking for.   I came up with this adorable saying and mermaid image.

Step 2
Next, I had to measure the wall for the size of image I was wanting to create.  That is an important step, otherwise your image may be too big or too small.

Step 3
Next, I put the image and the sizing together to create the perfect oversized memaid in Design Space.  I moved everything around and attached it together until I had the size and design I wanted.  




 


Step 4
Finally, I created blocks that are the correct cut size of the 12 x 24 cutting mat and sliced the design.  Since this part is hard to type out or explain without showing you, I put together a little video tutorial so you can do it along side with me.
