Ornnamental Iron 2 – Mirror

Cyndi of Lovely Lula Here. For this month’s new Hello Thursday cartridge Ornamental Iron 2 I created a Southwest style mirror. I live in Arizona so when I saw this symbol on this cartridge I knew I had to make something with it.

I started with a 12 inch wooden hoop and covered it with heavy orange upholstery fabric and then glued a round mirror in the center with E-6000. Using the Ornamental Iron 2 cartridge I cut the Southwest looking design out of aqua card stock and attached it to the fabric using permanent spray mount. To finish it off I attached Imaginisce Hot Rocks. I hung it on a hook and it goes perfectly in my house.

Happy crafting xoxo Cyndi aka Lovely Lula

Make a really special Thank You for a Really Special Person

When an occasion calls for an extra special Thank You, make this shadow box for the recipient and maybe you’ll even get a thank you for your thank you!

Make the Thank You Shadow box:

  1. Collect a grouping of 12×12 Scrapbook papers that compliment each other. Solids (like the great colors you’ll find from Bazzil Basics and patterns from Imaginisce)
  2. Find a shoe box (or other box) with a removable lid.
  3. Cover the box and cover with fabulous papers. Go ahead, get wild and crazy mixing up the solids and patterns!
  4. On the Cricut—with the Accent Essentials cartridge—cut four (4) flower shapes for each bloom you want. There are seven (7) in this project, so there is a total of 28 variously shaped and sized flowers you will need here.
  5. Assemble four (4) pieces on the end of a pipe cleaner, using tacky glue to secure each layer. You will have seven (7) flowers total. (You may make more or less to your heart’s desire)
  6. Make a cone out of a piece of paper. This will be your vase.
  7. Going through the small hole in the cone, tape your flowers to the inside of the “vase”.
  8. Use double stick foam or other heavy duty tape to secure the vase to the inside of the box.
  9. Sign the lid, and you’re done!

Make a Memory Game from the Mini Monsters Cartridge

Oooo~Halloween is on it’s way! September First marks the beginning of the preparations for the Holidays~for me anyway.  And Halloween is not only a big one for decorating, it is by far my favorite for throwing parties and having fun.

The first thing I did yesterday was to pull out my new Cricut Monsters Cartridge and a pile of Bazzill Basics and Imaginisce paper. I cut the main bodies out of solid Bazzill papers (their colors are Tops!) and dressed up the little fiends with the coolest of the cool patterns from Imaginisce’s line called “Live Loud.” I used the YourStory to laminate cards (to prevent tearing) so that my young friends can play with them for ages.

“Catch Up On Your Reading” Bookmark

With the kids starting back to school you can finally catch up on that stack of Summer reading you thought you would get to. That means take some time to hand craft yourself a lovely bookmark to tuck into the stack of books. I made this one for the Creative Escape SWAPs that happened in Chandler, AZ over the weekend. Provo Craft was the SWAP Room sponsor. I used Bazzill Basics Paper in White, Raven Black and Navajo Blue. For the embossing I used the Cuttlebug embossing folder called Typeset. For the Chair I used the Cricut Heritage Cartridge. Then I Razzel Dazzeled it up by gluing on a black button at the bottom and attaching three black hot rocks with my irock to the chair.
