He Paused His Game!

My son paused his game long enough to take pics of the t-shirt I made him using Cricut's new Infusible Ink!  The ink transfer sheets add a seamless and weightless design to your blank that results in a professional looking end product.  I was particularly interested in the new Infusible Ink line because my son has clothes sensitivity issues.  Since the ink infuses into your blanks (in this case the tee), there are no seams.  That's right!  You can make personalized sensory-friendly clothing!  This is a game changer for me!!!

Don't skip this step!  You want to roll your blank before you add your design to remove any lint/debris to ensure you get a clean transfer of ink.  Your product may look lint free...but believe me, it's not!

The reveal...be prepared to be amazed!

I placed a piece of cardstock on the underside so that the ink didn't infuse accidentally onto the back of the t-shirt.

Again, I added a clean piece of cardstock to the underside to ensure the ink didn't transfer to the front when I heat set it.
I added a piece of butcher paper for the front of the tee to lay on when I heat set the back.  In this pic, you can see how some of the front design transferred onto the paper.  That is why it's important to use the butcher paper.

 His smile says it all!  Soft, seamless, weightless...sensory-friendly! #infusible ink

Cricut's Latest and Greatest...Infusible Ink!

Cricut has done it again!  They have created a new product that is certain to WOW you!  It's a new Infusible Ink system that allows to you create and permanently transfer designs to a compatible base material. What makes this new system unique is that the Infusible Ink transfer becomes one with your chosen blank.  It doesn't simply lay on top of your blank.  It infuses with it to produce a professional-quality seamless, vibrant, weightless and permanent transfer.
The product line will include a variety of ink transfer sheets, markers/pens, and blanks to start off with and Michaels will exclusively sell the Cricut Infusible Ink beginning online June 16, 2019, and in stores June 21, 2019, until October 1, 2019.

I was lucky enough to receive a sampler of the new product.  Please join me to get a sneak peek of the product.  I will be sharing what I create with it this upcoming week.  #infusibleink, #CricutMade

You’re in Luck!

     You’re in luck! I have a batch of newly created St. Patrick’s Day/Good Luck cards to share with you today.  I used Anna Griffin’s Springtime Shaker Card Set for the bulk of the cards with an added vintage photo here and there.

The card kits include cards bases, layers, and embellishments that can be mixed and matched to create unique one of a kind cards.  I opened several of the sequin bags and added clovers and tulips to further enhance the springtime theme.

I sourced the free vintage clipart from HERE.  Have fun getting green in spring!

Let's Stay Home Pennant

I recently got back from a crafting weekend with my Cricut Circle Maniacs.  In our swag bag, we received some acrylic word from Craft Chameleon.  At first, I thought about making them into chunky keychains (I still might do it with the third letter I received).  Upon brainstorming on what I wanted to create with them, I decided on a subway art pennant.  

     The pop of color and dimension against the canvas background worked well with the subway art motif.  Anyone who knows me knows that I love adding texture and dimension to my projects and that I can't leave anything flat.  The "let's STAY home" sentiment was added using foil iron-on and I finished the pennant by embellishing it with a beaded charm I made, faux leather leaves, ribbon, and sequins.
     The pennant is going to look so cute hanging in my craft room! Thanks for taking a peek!

Everything is better French

I am gearing up for the annual Circle Mania in Atlanta.  The subject of one of my classes is junk food...YUMMY!

I created the fry box using Design Space and my new Cricut Maker scoring tool.  I also used Sweet Stamp Shops French is Better and Burger Night stamp sets to create my 3x3 mini card set.  SSS also sells color in sticker sheets with the same theme!

I then filled the fry box with decorative shred, folded and added a gingham napkin and placed both in a cellophane bag.  My mini card fry set is ready to gift!

love ~ Thanksgiving Card

My goal for today's Thanksgiving card was to create a harvest feel.  I also wanted to work with what I received in my recent mystery box from Sweet Stamp Shop.  The set I used was 'Quilt Stitch'.  I altered quilt panel images to create peas and corn:

I also used SSS's 'Adventure Awaits' stamp set for the fox and tent.  Here is another card I made from this set last week.

Shucks, almost done with my cards (trying to avoid cleaning and meal planning)! 😆

Give Thanks

Hello Everyone!  Can you believe it's almost Thanksgiving!  I have so much to do...clean for company, decorate, prepare a menu, shop.  The list is endless.  Luckily, I have still found time to craft - there is always time to craft, right? 😉

Today I am sharing a card I made using a predesigned card from Cricut cartridge Simple Holiday Cards and Sweet Stamp Shop's Hedgehog Kiss stamp set.  

I dressed the hedgehogs as pilgrims by drawing a buckle onto Mr. Hedgehog's hat and altered the maid's hat from SSS's Hats stamp set to create an apron for Mrs. Hedgehog.  Now, they are dressed and ready to give thanks at their Thanksgiving feast!  Enjoy!

Sweet Stamp Shop ~ Happy Thanksgiving

Today I am sharing two Thanksgiving cards I created using Sweet Stamp Shop's Adventure Awaits stamp set.  

Sweet Stamp Shop's Adventure Awaits stamp set for the icons and Stampin Up! for the sentiment.

Sweet Stamp Shop washi.

Anna Griffin Marvelous Maple Leaves and Abundant Acorns Cuttlebug folders to dry emboss the layers.

I used Copics to color the stamps in and a Crystal Clear Spectrum Noir glitter brush to add a little gleam.  I also used liquid glass on the noses for shine and Anna Griffin Marvelous Maple Leaves and Abundant Acorns Cuttlebug folders to dry emboss the layers.

Sweet Stamp Shop 'Resting Witch Face'

Happy Friday night!  I recently found a couple of cute stamp shops and of course, shopped!  To my happy surprise, when I signed up for the Sweet Stamp Shop newsletter, I received a bunch of FREEBIE digital stamps!  😍 The latest addition to their freebies was the 'Resting Witch Face" Halloween image.

She is so cute and sassy!  There is a ghost image that I plan on coloring in this weekend too.  Hope you have fun creating your last minute Halloween projects this weekend.  I know I have a few!
