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!

Thankful Art

Cyndi of Lovely Lula Here. This week I married the idea of affordable art with Thanksgiving. A few weeks ago when I created this Fall wreath I over printed onto the canvas with the YUDU screen I had prepared using the Simply Scarecrow Cartridge. I cut the leaves out that were in good shape and then with the rest of the canvas I tore it into strips and set it aside. So always save those scraps you can put them to good use later.

I used an inexpensive canvas that I picked up at the craft supply store as the base. I first painted it red with acrylic paint, then I used painters tape to tape off lines and I spray painted orange over top of that, once dry I peeled the tape off. Next I wrapped the painted canvas with the printed, torn strips and stapled them to the back. To hold them down I coated the piece with shellac. Once the canvas was dry, I glued the leaves down down to the surface. Finally, I used the Autumn Celebrations Cartridge and cut the word “thankful” out of gold vinyl and attached that to the piece. Now I have a fun, affordable piece of art for Thanksgiving.

Growl Rumble Roar! Tiger Baby Quilt

Hi, It’s Kendra here on this October Hello Thursday and I am so excited to bring you the Growl Rumble Roar Tiger Baby Quilt. It was so much fun to create! You are going to find that the Noah’s ABC Animals is a cartridge you are going to want to purchase! Be sure to check back throughout the whole week for lots of more amazing projects!

It is so soft and cuddly with a cow print fleece on the back and bright, colorful fun fabrics on the front!

The words Growl Rumble Roar! going down the side create just a little extra fun and a little more color and texture.

Once the hand embroidering was completed I machine stippled the entire quilt with free motion quiting.

This project used the Cricut Expression 2, Noah’s ABC Animals and multiple colors of fabric and fleece for the backing! Hope you create one of these for your own little one or as a gift! This cartridge was so much fun to work with and is an absolute must have for your Cricut Cartridge Library! 🙂

Pink T-shirt Restyled

It is Re-style week at Mixology Crafts stick around to see what we come up with.

Cyndi of Lovely Lula Here. I had a stretched out, plain, pink t-shirt that I decided to give a re-style to. I cut the shirt up the front and pulled it in together to “tighten up” the shirt and then sewed it back together.

I cut a piece of pink patterned fabric and ironed it into a pocket shape. I cut a squirrel on my Cricut using the Create A Critter Cartridge out of black construction paper and used that to burn a screen on my YUDU. I then screen printed the squirrel onto canvas in pink ink on the YUDU. I ironed it to the pocket using Heat-n-Bond and then sewed the squirrel pocket to the t-shirt.

Now I have a re-styled, new feeling t-shirt in pink to celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness month.

A Meow Of A Chair!

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?

Happy Scrappin’
