Imagine Notebook Doodles Cartridge Shoes

Cyndi of Lovely Lula Here. I LOVE the newest Imagine Cartridge called Notebook Doodles. Oh what fun I had.  I took an old pair of shoes, used white Gesso to cover them, allowed that to dry. I printed the little character designs onto iron on transfer paper. I then cut up the iron on paper and transferred it on to yellow cotton fabric and attached these patches to the shoe with glue. I then used Ranger Enamel Assents in black to outline the patches.

Solar System Tote bag!

It’s Kendra here and I need to apologize for being so late.  I have had a houseful of sick kiddos and I am definitely running behind.

My project this week is a Solar System Tote bag that was created with the Solar System CCR Exclusive Digital Images a tie-dyed t-shirt and “white” blue jean fabric, Blue and Green Fabric and Steam-a-Seam.

I wanted to create the bag with a little surprise inside.  Thus the Earth inside.

 

 

My daughter Anika was so excited when she saw this bag.  She cannot wait to start using it.  🙂

What would you use this Digital Cartridge to make?  I can’t wait to hear!

Happy Scrappin”

Cheater Halloween Costumes

We are celebrating Halloween this week at Mixology Crafts. There are several Halloween cartridges you can play with but you can also use all of your carts to create something to celebrate this fun and festive holiday. Stay tuned this week to see what we come up with.

Cyndi of Lovely Lula Here. I used my Gypsy, my Cricut and several different cartridges to create a fun cheater Halloween costume idea. I cut shapes out of different colored card stock and attached them to wooden BBQ skewer sticks with glue. They will sit in the vase for party goers to pick up, hold up to their faces and play a character. This is a great thing to have around at your Halloween party for those cheaters who think they are going to get out of wearing a costume. Ha – we’ve got that covered!

Here are where each of the cuts came from.

Mustache: Bump in the Night Cartridge

Glasses: Forever Young Cartridge

Kissing Lips: Love Struck Cartridge

Bow Tie: Paper Doll Dress-up Cartridge

Jack-O-Lantern Mouth: October 31st Cartridge

Vampire Teeth: Pumpkin Carving Cartridge

Are you Cricuting a Halloween costume this year? Share yours!

Rhinestone T-shirt with Ribbons and Rosettes!

Michelle has some fun creating her t-shirt with the Ribbon and Rosettes Cricut Cartridge.

Here is her t-shirt!

Rhinestone t-shirt created using irock.  I cut the rhinestone alphabet out at 1.5 inches each. Using the black rhinestones I place them in the spots and use the irock to adhere the rhinestones to the t shirt.  Ribbon and Rossettes also has other rhinestone features.

Here is a closer up photo of the t-shirt with the template still on the t-shirt.

Sweather Weather Cartridge T-shirt

Cyndi of Lovely Lula Here. This week for Hello Thursday I used the Sweater Weather Cartridge to create a t-shirt design. I did this because I live in Arizona and even on Christmas day a sweater can be a bit warm so I thought I’d create the Christmas sweater concept that could be layered with a long sleeve t-shirt.


To make this I cut the designs out of black card stock using the Sweater Weather Cartridge. The shapes are cut at Tree and Reindeer 3 in, Hearts and arrows 1 1/2 in, Stars 1 in. I then used those shapes to burn a YUDU screen and printed onto white canvas cotton t-shirts with red ink. I made a tone of these to give away to my friends.
