Hello! Fun toddler shirts.


Hi there!   I know it's been awhile but y'all know life gets in the way of crafting way more than it should, there should be a law I tell ya!

 Recently I did a complete redo on my craft room, using stuff I already had.  It had become a dumping ground and I needed order and calm in order to craft. I'll share some video and photos in the next week give or take. For now let's show you the shirts I made.  

I bought a pack of plain white toddler shirts in a 2t last week. I already have a nice selection of heat transfer vinyl and I knew I wanted something bright and cheerful.  I'm still in the process of learning my Cricut Explore and so far it is my favorite machine!  My crafting buddy Christie came over to check out the craft room redo and helped me with the ironing. 

Here is my sweet little Ragan sporting her Bee Happy tee. I used flocked transfer from Vinyl Expressions. It turned out pretty cute. I didn't have flocked skin tones so I mixed and matched. The black and yellow are flocked the skin tone is regular.

Let's talk about lessons learned while making these shirts. 

#1. Use flocked or regular. Don't mix them.   They look ok, it just isn't seamless like I hoped. 

#2. Use custom settings and choose iron on glitter. Works perfect for flocked vinyl. 

#3. Make sure every layer is flipped. I didn't realize that when I customized the settings, it did not automatically flip the image. As you can see in the close up, they layers aren't even.  Look closely at the second t-shirt with the owl. It's awful. 

Sorry I can't recall the cartridge the images were on. Create a critter I think. I have a few other things I'm working on and a craft room redo to share with you the next couple days.  I'd love to hear some feedback if there is anyone out there seeing this post LOL.

Hugs & Chirps!

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…

Scrappin with my Bug Happy Birthday Blog Hop!

Hey Krazies!

My sweet friend Michelle from Scrappin with my Bug is having a birthday!  We're celebrating by gathering a bunch of fun ladies for a big blog hop that is going to run all weekend long. Lots of fun stuff to see along the way and prizes galore!  Be sure you stop at Michelles blog first to wish her a Happy Birthday! 


My Project
Happy Birthday Michelle!
 Front of the Gate fold card.  I used rub on dots for the top and bottom, 2 buttons to wrap the bakers twine around and cut the flowers from Walk in my garden.  The stamps are misc Birthday stamps and the paper is all DCWV various stacks.  I inked around the flowers with chalk ink (cats eye I think it's called)  Oh and the rub on dot borders are from Stamping Up.  I'm brand new with rubber stamps and will eventually learn how do do it correctly.
 Inside of the card.  It's your Day is from Pink Cricut - one of her stamp sets.... sorry don't remember which. Paper is from DCWV and I inked a lil here and there. 


 Ho…

You are going to LOVE this video. TRUST ME!

How do you store your 12x12 paper?  Do you like those Vertical folders from Cropper Hopper?  See that? 5.88.  I love them, but I needed 15 of them.  I have 5.  Well after putting my thinking cap on I came up with a way to do this for FREE.  and it takes 3 sheets of paper to decorate.  So watch the video then leave me a comment letting me know what you think.

At the end of the video is a contest for some blog candy - who wants a free cartridge?  I don't know what the cartridge is yet because my sponsor didn't tell me what they were sending - so we'll all be surprised YAAAY.

I love comments so please leave me some feedback!
