How fun is this?  I found a video (from the Cricut website) by a 12 year old girl (yeah, you heard right, 12 years old!) who gave a great tutorial on how to make shirts using your Cricut and freezer paper.  I didn’t have any fabric paint so I decided to try it by air brushing it with Copic markers.  Basically you cut the design out on freezer paper (shiny side up) then using a dry iron (no steam) iron the stencil on to your shirt (face down) and paint away.  The freezer paper will peel off once cool, though you’ll want to wait until the paint is dry.  What a fun way to customize pillow cases, tote bags, jeans, or whatever else makes you smile!

The green shirt I washed and dried in the dryer and it seemed to be okay.  It did fade a little bit so I would recommend letting it dry flat.  The white shirt I picked up today at Target and haven’t washed yet so we’ll see how it holds up.   I have seen lots of really creative shirts using this method and of course, I just had to try it!  Thanks for looking!

HERE’s the video if you’re interested!

For this card I used the Pooh Font cartridge (Cricut), Home Decor for the stars, and Zooballoo for the clouds.  I accented it with Copic markers and a white gel pen.  DP is from PaperTrey Ink and some sheer ribbon completed it.   I still think I’m missing something, but making cards using only the Cricut (no stamps) has always been hard for me.  Thanks for looking!

Another card using Anna’s new release, Beach Bum .  I used the Zooballo cartridge (Cricut) to cut the waves and a white gel pen to add some accents.  The waves and sky were airbrushed and the image was colored with Copic markers.  This guy in his tube just cracks me up.  Thanks for looking!

I was browsing a blog that showed how to make these gorgeous flowers.  I accidentally closed out my window and haven’t been able to find it (grrr….) so I can’t give credit for it.  I’m sorry!

I made a few changes to them, but cut these flowers out using Plantin Schoolbook at 1/4″ intervals.  My smallest flower is 3/4″, the largest is 1 3/4″.  I then inked every other flower to give it some dimension and curled them with my finger tips.  I did the same for the leaves, they were cut at the same sizes as the flowers.

The colors are Pink Pirouette and Wild Wasabi (retired) both from Stampin’ Up.  The stamp is from Cornish Heritage Farms (LOVE their stamps!).  The pearls are from Martha Stewart.  Who knew that paper flowers could be so pretty?  Thanks for looking!


This card was made using the Cricut cartridge, Storybook. I cut shadows of the tree branch, bird and corner swirl out using black card stock. The label was also cut using the same cartridge and the sentiment is from PaperTrey Ink. I added a rhinestone for the eye and used a Spica glitter pen (Copic) for the wing. Card base is Soft Sky (retired from Stampin Up) and is one of my favorite colors.  I will be sad when my supply runs out!

Good morning! A friend of mine was kind of enough to order some extra tins for me and I promised to post them when I was done doing something fun with them! LOL! So, here is my third tin, the other two I’ll get to later.

I made this as a gift, it’s a “scrap tin”. A close friend likes to scrap, but has two young children. Well, having young ones myself I know how hard it can be to catch all those moments you want to remember. Now she can jot down those funny moments, throw some photos in, or add mementos that she can scrap later. This came together pretty easily with the coordinating paper and ribbon. I used StazOn for the stamping and used French Script (SU) and a floral set by Inkadinado for the outside of the tin. The dividers were stamped using Everyday Blessings (PaperTrey Ink). I bought the cutest little butterfly punch (Martha Stewart), punched it twice and glued them together for a 3D look, ran it through the Swiss Dots embossing folder and added it to the first divider. The tab punch is from SU, and the “K” was cut using Plantin Schoolbook (Cricut E).  I had fun putting this together!  Thanks for looking!


A piece of birthday cake for my husband’s birthday. I know, not very masculine, however, in real life, that’s how cakes are, right? LOL! Men don’t care what a cake looks like…only that it tastes good! The cake template was cut out using the cartridge Tags, Bags, Boxes & More (Cricut). I used a transfer sheet for the window and Liquid Applique to border the window. Liquid pearls were used for the center of the flowers and I filled the box with dark chocolate…his favorite.
