Mustache Bathroom

Hi everyone!

My sister moved into a new house and the kids have their own bathroom and got to choose how it was decorated. Mustaches was something Connor and Maddie could agree on. My sister found an shower curtain with bright colored mustaches on it and that's where she came up with the design and color scheme.

My sister Holly painted the back ground of  a canvas with lots of color then we cut black vinyl with the Cricut using American Alphabet and Mustache and Glasses Cricut cartridges, and applied to canvas.

Holly came up with the "Keep Calm and 'Stache On" .


She purchased plain black soap, tooth brush holder and cup and we cut mustaches out of vinyl with the Cricut.




And finally the shower curtain rings, She made out of Polymer Clay. She free handed it and used the end of a Cricut tool to wrap the curl around and once they were baked we attached to shower curtain rings she had purchased. 






In the video below you will see the whole bathroom and then the making of the mustaches with clay.

Shark Week Birthday card

Hi Everyone!

I used the Shark from Cricut Craft Room, it was free for a week and that is when I used it but I did buy it from cricut.com (click here to take you to the shark). Ok back to the shark, I put the shark inside the tv from Nifty Fiftys cricut cartridge.
 
I cut out where the tv screen is so I can put the paper behind the tv with the shark and then I cut out acetate from old packaging, like the clear plastic your cricut cartridges come in. I used that to look like glass on the old tv. The shark was behind the glass.

I made the dials on the tv stand out also, I used the entire cut out of the circles for the dials, and used foam squares. For you young ones tv used to have a dial to change the channel, no remotes. Life was so hard, lol.


Inside I made the remote from Fathers Day Cartridge. And stamped Happy Birthday inside.

The video below will show you the entire making of the card.

Polymer Clay Candle Holders

Hi Everyone!

I made not 1, but 2 candle holders, I did not take pictures during the process but I did take video, but you know I always do. I started out with glass votive candle holders from Walmart for $.97 and covered them with clay. 

The first one I made clay canes, one of the canes I made into a square cane and show you the complete process in the video.





The second one I cover completely in transparent clay and then squares I cut with a cookie cutter from scrap clay. They are both totally different but both easy once you watch the videos and you can make some for friends and family for Christmas. 

If you watch my vlog videos I will always let you know when clay is on sale at the craft stores.


I added glitter to the transparent clay in the second video.
This First video shows how to make clay canes and how I made the first holder.

This second video is more simple.

I hope you enjoy this project and let me know if you make one.

U R A RockStar-FREE Cut

Hi Everyone!

I just saw the FREE Project, Upcycle T-shirt. I hope we get this longer than 1 week but I am not sure if we get it forever or just a week. Indie Art cartridge is also free for this week.

Just because they say it's to use with vinyl for a tshirt, you can use it for anything. So I made a Thank You card with it. 

I welded it together and manipulated the little stars a bit. You can download the cutfile here. I used Upcycle T-shirt and Feeling Groovy for the 3 letters u r a, if you don't have Feeling Groovy that you can delete those an use other or none.

 I'm not sure how to explain how I added the colored paper behind the stars to make them rainbow, watch the video for that. You could just add a piece of rainbow paper or multiple papers like I did of your own choosing.
Watch the video for full directions.

Starbucks Drink Card

Hi, Everyone!

I'm sorry I have not been here for a while. I have started vlogging everyday, you can check out my new Youtube channel here. You will see some crafts as I am doing them, and just everyday kinda stuff, some of it is inspirational. Everyone tells me they are funny.

Ok back to the reason we are all here today!


First I made the Starbucks Drink Using the Fast Food Cricut Lite Cartridge, I used what they call the slushy and clicked Hide Contour for the stripe on the cup, so there would be no stripe. Cut the base out with green (Starbucks straws are green) and then used a metallic white for the next layer, and brown for the last layer. Here is the cutfile you can download for Cricut Craft Room. I got the Starbucks logo from Google Images and right click on picture you choose and save to your computer and resize as you need it. I then used Glossy Accents over the cup to make it look like a clear cup.

You can see all of this in the first video below.


Mandie the girl I made this for loves Starbucks and Hot Pink and animal print. I explain how to do the whole card in the second video below and show you the papers and everything. 


I stamped the inside of the card with Happy Birthday and a cupcake.
In the 3rd video is my vlog video that shows you how to make the bow with a fork.
