Fabric and My Cricut : My first experience

Happy Friday friends!!!!

   I hope everyone is having a fun filled Crafting day!!! I am! My friend Cindy is over for our weekly Friday crafting session. Whoo hoo!! Time to have some crafting fun! Before I leave you and  figure out what to make I wanted to share what I worked on yesterday.

   A friend of mine had mentioned that she was going to paint Mickey heads on t-shirts for a bday party.  While she was telling me, my little lightbulb turn on in my head and I thought "wait a minute! I could use my cricut to cut the fabric and do it for her!" So I told her that I could do it and she brought the t-shirts to me this past tuesday.

This is what my living room looked like while I was working on the shirts all day yesterday.

                                       

Here is what my masterpiece looks like!!! =)
I was very happy! My first time was a success!!! YAY



Hope you enjoyed it!!

Have you ever cut fabric before with your cricut? Leave a comment below telling me about your expierence or any tips and tricks you might have!!

If you like what you see become a follower and look forward to upcoming blog hops and fun giveaways!!

Here are some quick instrictions on what I did:
1. Iron on Steam A Seam 2 to fabric.
2. Use a SUPER DE DUPER sticky mat
3. Place fabric side on mat
4. Cut your image on flip mode
5. Use the deep cut blade setting at 6
6. Speed low
7. Pressure high

Hope this is helpful!! If you decide to give it a try, let me know I'd love to see what you've created!!

Have a fantabulous day!!

Back 2 School

Hi my friends!!

   I hope everyone has had a great Friday! I've spent it crafting with one of my BFF's Cindy! Having a blast with her here! =)

   For today's post I decided to make a Back 2 School card for my little brother. This is his last year of junior high! I can't believe how time is flying. I have always felt as if he was my son because I pretty much help with his upbringing. So with each new milestone in his life my heart skips a beat and I feel super happy this 13 year old is doing well. I love him to death! Awwww <3

   Since this is his last year, I want him to know that he will always be the #1 student, in junior high and all his school years! This card is meant for him to remember that each and everyday! I want him to know that his big sister is counting on him to become the best he can be!

    The colors I used on this card represents the Los Angeles Dodgers. This is our favorite baseball team, so I wanted to incorporate that in.

Here's the card. I hope you enjoy!


Used retired cart Locker Talk.
Everything cut at 3.12 on Gypsy.

Welded the shape together to get shaped card.

Added buttons, doodling, and Stickles for a little
sumthing sumthing!

Well what do you think? Do you like??? I am going to enter this card in a few challenges.

Have  a great day! I be seeing you soon!

Good Morning my sweet friends!!


    Welcome to my blog and the Birds and Birdcages Blog Hop.  If you happen to stumble upon my Blog and would like to play along please do so by starting at Sandra's Blog over at
 http://365daysofcricut.blogspot.com/.  I was so super de duper excited when Sandra asked me to join her amazing hop, it's all about Birdies!! This was quite a challenge for me since I've never done anything with birds. But was excited to see what I could create!

     If you came by from the greatest and most talented MEL, than you are on track!!! Wasn't her project just GREAT?!! She always amazes me with her talent!! She's Great!

   For todays project I decided to create for the very first time 3X3 cards to give out as either "Thinking of you, or Thank you" cards!! Wow this sure was a challenge. Since I could only work on a 3x3 base, my cuts were extremely small!! Thank the craft lords for Zig two way and tweezers!!!

    Here is my project I hope you enjoy!!!



Birthday Bash Cart for the Birds.

Gloss Accents on all the black parts of the cards.

Added a little glitter for pizzazz!

Pearls finish this card off.

Princess Theme Blog Hop

Good morning my fellow crafters!!

  Welcome to my blog, I hope everyone is having a fabulous Saturday!!! I am so super excited for this blog hop. Sylvia at bellascrapbookdesigns is hosting this fun blog hop dedicated to all the princesses out there!! Thank you so much Sylvia for asking me to participate in this hop with you alongside so many talented crafters!

   For this hop I decided to make my niece a banner for her new room. Just this week she mentioned she likes skulls?!! Yes my 6 year old princess pink loving niece loves skulls. So skulls is what she got.  You might be thinking SKULLS??? I thought this was a princess theme hop??? Yes, you are right!! The carts I used for this hop was ROCK PRINCESS, ONCE UPON A PRINCESS, and ALPHALICIOUS!! Rock Princess is where the skulls came from. =)

   Oh, I forgot to add my niece tells me that her name ALYSA means princess. So I thought this was exceptionaly perfect for this hop!

If you came from Amber's blog then you are on track! =)

Hope you enjoy my project and this hop!!! Here it goes.....






So??? What do you think. This is my 2nd attempt to banner making. I tried to incorporate everything she likes. This banner looks really nice in person! I hope you enjoyed it. Leave me a comment letting me know if you liked it or is there anything I should add to it. I thought it was missing something, but that's just me.

You are now off to LIZ
