Hi everyone how are you? I just came back from an amazing weekend and I created this adorable wall hanging before I left but it did not get posted. I used the new Floral Emporium imagine cartridge and one of the basic shapes included on the imagine machine. The chose two pattern papers and the coordinating solid pink on the cartridge to create the cute little onsie.
Tip and trick: to decorate the onsie I used artificial flowers and flower trim green cut in half to create the diaper.
I hope everyone is having a great day

I love how this project turned out. My grandma had Breast Cancer so far my mom is in the clear but that means my risk is still pretty high. I wanted to make this onsie to give to a mom who is fighting this horrible disease and has just had a baby or is pregnant. This whole project was so cheap. The onsie was 3.00 and the fabric scrap only .75 cents and I added the hot fix crystals to the breast cancer ribbon.

Hi, it’s Kendra here again on this wonderful Tuesday! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I know I did with the launch of the Cricut Expression 2 with HSN! It was great chatting with so many of you…I hope I inspired you to take the plunge and purchase the CE2. You are going to just love it!
Design on a Dime is the theme this week and boy oh boy did I have the perfect fixer-upper! I had purchased on old vanity desk last summer that came with a chair. The chair was upholstered with the most hideous awful brown fabric and my youngest daughter refused to even have it in her room. If I put it in there she would carry it back to the garage! Well, did I fix that today! I started out with a piece of cotton quilt batting and drew a straight line on it, down the center. I then took strips of fabric that coordinate with her room and started sewing them in random order using the straight line as a starting point to keep the sewing straight.
Using the Cricut Expression 2, Black, Green and Hot Pink Fabric and Heat-N-Bond, I cut the cat from the Cricut American Alphabet out at 10 inches in.
Black Cross Stitch Thread was then used to Blanket Stitch around the Cat. Once this was complete, the cat was centered on the seat and using a Power Shot Stapler and the seat board was upholstered. I still am going to be painting the chair white…but that is for another day!
When I went to put the chair away, Anika told me to be careful with it, she did not want it ruined! I believe that means I had SUCCESS! What do you all think?

Hi! It’s Kendra Wiggins here again! With Christmas just around the corner, I thought that these pictures would be just perfect for those of you trying to think of things to make as gifts.
I spent the entire last week painstakingly stripping wall paper off of my daughters bedroom wall and painting her room a beautiful Twist of Lime shade of green. I designed these pictures to match her new room and as part of her Christmas gift. She is absolutely in love with Cats so I thought the Cat And Mouse theme would be precious. I chose the color by going to her quilt and they match just perfectly! I hope that you take the time and create a little homemade goodness for those that you love.
Here are the complete instuctions!
Be sure to check out my blog!

Hi, it’s Kendra once again on this beautiful Tuesday here in Sunny South Carolina!
Now that August has arrived it is Back To School time once again here in the South. With some of the schools around us already back in session and my own children start school next Monday I want to take the time to share a project that you can make with your children to make going back to school a little more fun. It still amazes me how time flies by…I am struggling with the reality that my oldest daughter, Abby is a Senior this year and will be graduating from High School…it just does not seem possible. Where has the time gone?
My project today is actually the project I do with my oldest daughter just before school starts every year. It is taking plain 1 inch binders with the outside pockets and making them personalized and special just for her.
Here are 2 of the folders we made her last year. (We are still waiting to get her class schedule for this yeasr before we can make them for this year.) They were created with the Cricut Expression, The Gypsy and the following cartridges linked to the Gypsy; Cuttin’ Up, George and Basic Shapes and Cursive 101. The neat thing about creating these with your children is that they can be customized to your child’s likes.
Here is a look at the side. Your child can put these folders in their locker and will be able to clearly read the spine with the subject on it.

I had so much fun at CHA. Many amazing things on the horizon. We will be working with some great new products from our wonderful sponsors in the next few months. I am happy to say we were able to get a 1st hand look at the new machine. I love the this little cricut mini wow it rocks. I know people might wonder why they need this little machine? I have a list of positive points to make about this amazing little machine.
- bluetooth wireless so cool.
- works with cricut craft room
- compact easy to bring to a crop and could work witha small lap top.
- you will have access to all your carts
- easy to keep next to my computer so small and compact but still fits an 8 1/2 x11 sheet of paper way to cool.
I can not wait to play with this item more. kendra took a video and will be posting shortly.
As you know I was planning Malia’s 5th birthday early this month. I had her party here is one of the decorations. This canvas now hangs in her room. I love how it turned out. I painted the canvas pink. I cut out the phrase from the word collage in white cardstock. I than colored the cardstock with black perma opaque marker and outlined the words in gold. The Crown I painted was pink and I added crystals and fabric strip. The pink and black fabric I added all around the outer edge of the canvas. Glue the ric rac on the inner edge to conceal any difference in the width. Cut the word collage out at 10 inches and than pull the letters and words out and reposition to creat the Word Collage. Use pop dots to create depth in the canvas.
I am also adding a few shots of her table soory for the not so great lighting.
The candle project was a huge success. They had so much fun creating the candles. I used the little frogs as part of the decorations. I used the Flower Shoppe cartridge and the Princess Party cartridge.
I hope everyone is having a great Wednesday.
I am excited to reveal all the new projects tomorrow.
Have a great day,
