Sunday Surprise with Heather S - Vinyl on Wine Glasses

Good morning!  And what a good morning it is : )  Heather S. here with this week's Sunday Surprise and as I write this post I am sitting on an elevated deck, bayside at Ocean City, MD looking at the most amazing view.  Sigh.  Will I be able to focus though this post?  We shall see.

The project I'd like o share with you this week is my latest obsession...wine glass design.  I chose this project for two reasons:  1.  Shameless self promotion  I make these for others and would LOVE to make one for you.  Please check out my Facebook page and "like" it if you like what you see : ) 2. If you are willing to learn, I'm willing to show ya how.  Vinyl is tricky to work with and people are often scared of it, but I'll see if I can give you a few decent tricks to use to take away some of the fear.

Here are some pictures of my glasses and I'll post some tips below:




Tips:

  • First, working with matte vinyl on glass is one of the most forgiving ways to start with vinyl. If the vinyl wrinkles, its easy to pull back up and re-apply.
  • Get some cheap glasses from the dollar store.  If it doesn't work out, you won't be out a lot of money : )  Work your way up from there.  You'll also find lots of other great stuff to decorate there : )
  • USE TRANSFER PAPER.  Read the directions if you are not familiar with it.  Yes... you can use Reynolds Wrap Press and Seal.... Don't do it if its your first try.  That's a whole other tutorial in its self.  Should I do one?  Comment below.
  • Use a paper piercer to keep your fingers off the vinyl.  Carefully lift and move edges with the tip.
  • Layering is a beast.  Do it BEFORE you place it on the glass, not after and use a light table if you have one.  Its not necessary - I get by without it, but it makes things a LOT easier when you do have one.
  • EMBELLISH!!!  Add ribbon, make a wine charm, use EPOXY GLUE (not any other kind) to adhere rhinestones - get creative! (side note - I don't use rhinestones, I prefer to use mirror vinyl)
Have questions?  Please post them to my Facebook page - I'll be glad to try to answer them for you.  Happy crafting!!

PS - if you are still reading... as far as focus was concerned.... it took me over 45 minutes to write this.  LOL  Now....  back to the Beach : )  <3 Heather S




Hugs and Chirps!

Hello!

Hi everyone!

It's been almost 2 years since I posted... YIKES! It's been a little hectic on my end but I have been playing lately and hope tohave more posts.

I'm writing mainly because I noticed that the graphics on my blog has disappeared and I'm looking into why that has happened. I'm also looking into migrating to WordPress.

I've been making a lot of t-shirts lately and will post about them once everything is settled. For those of you that area actually still around - I appreciate it! I hope to bring a fresh new beginning to Kricut Krazy and become super active once again. I've missed you all dearly!


Hugs and Happiness!

Kricut Krazy is back!

Hello everyone!

I've missed you all!  What a crazy summer it has been.  I just kept walking by my craft room and longing to sit down and do something fun.  I've dabbled in things over the summer but no real crafty fun day.  I've been cooking tons of stuff I find on pinterest (surprisingly most has been a huge hit!) I've tried my hand at washer jewelry - and failed (see photos below) but I'll keep trying.

I didn't realize my phone posted a video I took the other day until I started getting you tube comments and emails LOL So here ya go for those that haven't seen it:




Ok a coupla ya asked about the washer jewelry.  I wanted to make them for my daughters. Krystina's would have Ragan Lyn  on the large washer and 3/14/2013 on the small washer with a blue stone for March.  Amanda's would have Julianna Marie on the large washer and 7/3/2013 on the smaller one along with a red stone for July.  Sigh.  Why does everything look SO much better in my head than i…
