Scrapbooking Tool Supply Spinner

Hello, it’s Kendra here this beautiful but very chilly Saturday Morning!  I am going to share with you a Scrapbooking Supply Tool Spinner that I made using the new Cricut Font and Basic Shapes Cartridge that comes with your Cricut Mini!  I also used the Labels Digital Exclusive cartridge to decorate the outside labels.

The Base is cut from Plywood that I used a Hexagon to cut the base and the platform out.  I purchased a Lazy Susan Spinner from Home Depot for less than $6.00!  The tubes are PVC couplings that were spray painted with Black Chalk Board Paint.  Vinyl was used to cut out the Labels that were attached but since it is spray painted with Chalk Board Paint, you can just label your items with chalk if you prefer!  I attached the couplings and the lazy susan spinner using apoxy.  I just love how it turned out and cannot wait to use it!

What kinds of projects would you make with your Cricut Mini?  I can’t wait to hear your ideas.  Be sure to think outside the box!  🙂

Happy Scrappin’


All Tricked Out and Ready to Cut…


How many times have you been to a crop or been at a friend’s house, and been concerned you would leave with the wrong machine?

Have you ever looked at your machine and thought about how much you love it, but it is so plain and mechanical looking?

Do you ever wish your Cricut  was a reflection of your  personality?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, than I have a solution to your woes.

This week we our featuring projects for the home.

My project is tricking out your Cricut machine. I love rhinestones and all things sparkly. My room is red and black with gold accents. Now my Cricut is a piece art all flashy and fun.

Screen Printed Jewelry finds on Etsy

Fabulous Finds Friday is all about screen-printing. On my quest to find unique jewelry to feature, I decided to checkout Etsy. My search this week consisted of screen-printed jewelry. So many items came up. I looked at such a variety of fun and funky screen-printed jewelry. I settled on featuring these 2 artists screen-printed lovelys. If you own a Yudu you could be creating these lovelys for yourself. I have been inspired to give making screen-printed jewelry a try.

I hope you have a Fabulous Friday and check these talented ladies out.

Stay Creative



Trendyscrapper Studio Michelle Van Etten

Hi welcome to the “Mixology Crafts Blog”, I am Michelle Van Etten. Here is a look at Trendyscrapper Studios. I am excited to share my passion for crafting with you.  In this video you will get a glimpse of my studio. I hope you enjoy your visit.

Have a Crafty Day


Introducing Erin

Hi everyone!   I’m so happy to be apart of Mixology Crafts!   I can’t wait to share project with you that will help you utilize your ProvoCraft tools and help you to think outside of the box.

I’m going to start by sharing with your where I create.   It’s not my ideal crafting space, but it’s what I’m using now that we’re renting after selling our home.  My space could best be described as small and stuffed!  I filmed this video of my space for you without cleaning up…so you’ll see my embarrassing clutter!  (Now don’t go and call that Hoarder’s show and tell them that you found someone new for them!!)  I wanted to give you a real life peek into my studio and show you that you don’t need a huge space in order to create great things.

In the video you’ll also notice that I have a hodgepodge of storage containers.   Since we’re renting our home right now I know that this space is only temporary and I didn’t want to spend a lot of money on storage solutions that might not work for me once we move so I just used what we had on hand.

Now a couple of things that you don’t see in the video are my sewing machine and my Yudu.  Both of them I use on my kitchen table and store them away when I’m not using them.  Did you know the Yudu fits in one of those  Ziploc Big Bags?  Yep, it does.  I put mine in one of those and put it under the futon in my office when I’m not using it.

Ok, so now that I’ve showed you my craft space I’d love to see yours…leave me a link if you have photos or video up online. And if you don’t have photos up just tell me about yours…is it big or small? Does it meet your current needs?

PS – Feel free to stop by my blog and check out some of my craft projects I’ve made.

Introducing Cyndi aka Lovely Lula

Hi and welcome to Mixology Crafts.  I look forward to bringing some fun and funky projects your way. My studio is in Tempe, Arizona surrounded by both desert and city – the best of both worlds.  It is a converted carport that has been enclosed to make a perfect crafting space. I share my life with my husband Jeremy , daughters Olive and Hattie Rose and our dog Mole’.  The projects you can expect from me will include a lot of bright colors, layering and a great deal of found goodies mixed in. I am looking forward to this fun new adventure.
