Word Bubble Cartridge Coasters

Cyndi of Lovely Lula Here. I used the Craft Room Exclusive Cart called Word Bubble to make Coasters. I cut out the bubble shape from some left over pieces of cork that I had previously screen-printed on with the YUDU. I am making a ton of these and packaging them as holiday gifts. Who doesn’t need coasters? Perfect for holiday parties!

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.

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.

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.

Design On A Dime Painting

It is Design on a Dime week at Mixology Crafts and we are going to load you up with fun ideas for home decor that won’t cost a fortune!

Cyndi of Lovely Lula Here. This week I took an inexpensive canvas from the craft supply store and treated it with layers to make a fun piece of art.

1. I started by painting the canvas all one color using acrylic paint, allow it to dry fully.

2. I spray painted a loose spotty paint over top in a contrasting color.

3. I used my Cricut to cut letters out of sticker vinyl (in this case I used Birds on Parade Cartridge) I laid those letter down on top of the canvas and dabbed a third color of paint over top, this time a lighter color, covering the letters, I allowed this to dry and then peeled the letters off to revel the color underneath.

4. I then used the YUDU to screen printed several sheets of card stock using a hand drawn patterns. I used those screen printed sheets to cut a large rose shape on the Cricut using the Sophie Cartridge, which is a Cricut Circle exclusive.

5. I flipped the rose shape upside down and lightly spray painted a dusting of black onto the canvas.

6. I flipped the rose over with the screen printing facing out and I added a few pieces of the vinyl that had been removed, to different areas on the canvas.

7. Finally I used shellac to hold the whole thing in place.

Allow to dry and you are done with a great piece of art to hang on your wall!
