I am having trouble with your templates they only print your name page. no pattern prints it has happened on multiple patterns. I dont know what to do. I am a new mwmber i tried printing from the web site and then also downloaded then printed and had the same results Help!
Make sure you have selected the pages you want to print. It sounds like it is just printing the last page, which leads me to think it might be auto-selecting just one page. Let me know if that works.
First off thanks so much Lia for sharing your work with us! I’ve been having just the best time making all of the flowers for my upcoming wedding, I absolutely couldn’t do it without the Cricut, your site, and your SVG files! These poppies are the first flower I’ve tried making from your site that are causing me trouble though. It’s hard to tell from the photographs where on the stem exactly you start gluing the petals, and how exactly you wrap the petals around. Also a little unclear of exactly where and how much I should be stretching the petals and where should I start wrapping the floral tape. If you could do a video for these poppies, or supply some more detailed photos or explanation on how to assemble them I would be eternally grateful! Thank you endlessly for all your work and keep it up!!
Hi Gwynn! To stretch the petals, use your thumbs to form a cup shape in the center of the petals (you only need to stretch lightly to form this shape). You will want to glue the petals in the same place you glued the stamen to the wire– begin by gluing on one petal first, pinch the base of the petal together a bit so it doesn’t wrap completely around the stamen. Then, glue the second petal across from the first in the same way. Glue the last two petals on in the same way across from one another in the spaces between the first two petals glued (so, the petals will all overlap). Now wrap the stem with floral tape, begin by wrapping the base of the petals (where you glued them to the stem) with the floral tape and continue to cover the stem. I hope that helps!!
Is the white foliage a paper cut piece too? love the poppies in this beautiful bouquet. Just had my Maker delivered so am gearing up to cut some beautiful Lia Griffith crepe paper. Thank you so much for all the lovely inspiration!
