First Cricut Project from Clipart.com

Image
Crafting is such a huge part of many people's lives these days, both commercially and for fun. One big influence in this surge was the introduction of the Cricut. This amazing machine allows people to easily, and accurately, cut a huge number of materials for their creations at home. Images have always been a large part of crafting and we wanted to see if we could create something using an image and font from Clipart.com .

Tips for Searching For Stock Images

Image
Source: iCLIPART.com Sometimes finding the perfect image on a stock imaging site can be a challenge. These tips will help reduce the time spent looking for images. Finding Images: When entering your keywords, remember that it is best to use simple keywords not sentences. For example: "ball blue dog" is better than " dog running down the street with a blue ball". Also, try many different keywords that might represent the same thing. For example: heart or love and idea or lightbulb. When To Be Specific With Your Search Keywords: I usually recommend using just one or two keywords but if your search results are bringing up thousands of images. You can reduce this by adding more keywords. For example: you need an image that portrays people in an office and if you just use the keywords " office people " you will get thousands of images in your results but if you add a couple more keywords in it will reduce the amount of images found, "office p
