Love Bunny Shirt

I made this shirt for Kaylee. I took the picture while it was still drying, so you can see the cardboard through it on the pic. I used vinyl and fabric paint for this. The bunny on the corner is from the Create a Critter cartridge and I freehanded the face. For the words, I used the Batman cart for the font and Create a Critter for the heart.

Workout Shirt

I have been wanting some new workout shirts and decided I would make some. So this is the first one I made. I used the Batman Cricut Cartridge for the font to make a stencil and used black fabric paint to put the saying on.

Decorate to Celebrate Easter Challenge: Bunny Suckers with Centerpiece

It is time for a new challenge over at Decorate to Celebrate.  The new challenge is to create a project for an Easter Party.  Be sure to head over to to check out all of the projects by the design team and enter your own project into the challenge.

I made a centerpiece with bunny rabbit suckers for Kaylee to take to school for the class Easter party.  I really love how this turned out.  I had the idea for a while and wasn't sure if it was going to come together as I imagined it, but I was so glad it did!
To make this, I started out with a styrofoam circle that was 12inches wide x 1inch high.  I covered it with green spraypaint to be the base.
Once that was dry, I used the Zooballoo Cartridge and some glossy green paper to cut out a grass border to go around the base.  I cut four of these at a size of 11.03inches wide x 5inches high and hot glued them around the edge. 
To make the bunnies, I used the Simply Charmed Cricut Cartridge and cut a front and back for them at a size of 2.88inches wide x 3.82inches high.  I added a small puff ball to the back for the tail.  For the front of them, I added google eyes and a small puff ball, drew in the mouth and used a pink color pencil to add the remaining details.  Once they were finished, I used a small dab of hot glue to attach the front and back to Tootsie Roll Pops.

I made 25 of the bunnies in all and then added them to the centerpiece by pushing the sticks into the styrofoam base.

To finish it off, I used a sample piece of vinyl siding from Lowes and a white dowel stick to make the sign.  The Happy Easter was cut using the font on the Batman Cartridge and pink vinyl.  I then went over it with a thin coat of Mod Podge to make sure the vinyl did not peel up.  Then, I had some small, flat backed carrots from Hobby Lobby that I glued to the about 6 of the bunnies hands.

Pinch On Card

Today I made a quick card for St. Patrick's Day. I used the Wild Card cartridge for the base and George and Basic Shapes to cut the green rectangle. Then, I used Paper Doll Dress Up for the shamrock and Batman for the font. These were cut from white vinyl. I am giving this card to my hubby.

Decorate to Celebrate St. Patrick's Day: Design Team Project

It is time for a new challenge over at Decorate to Celebrate.  This time we are challenging you to share all of your party supplies and decorations for a St. Patrick's Day party.  Be sure to check out all of the projects by the design team and link up your own projects to share here:

For my project, I made Kaylee a shirt to wear for St. Patrick's Day!  She wanted a shirt that said pinch proof.  I used the Batman Cricut Cartridge for the font and the Paper Dolls Dress Up Cartridge for the shamrock.  I used vinyl to make a stencil for the shirt and filled it in with black fabric paint.  It looks so cute, I think I may have to make a few more before the 17th!

St. Patrick's Day Purse

I finally had a chance to work on some crafting, and I made this little bag for Kaylee to use on St. Patrick's Day. 
I started out with the felt bag that I found at Hobby Lobby in their Summer Crafts area.
I then used the Paper Dolls Dress Up Cartridge to cut a shamrock stencil and filled it in with black paint on the bag.  After that was dry, I took a white paint pen and added a mouth to the shamrock and then used hot glue to add a bow and some google eyes to finish it off.
I think it turned out so cute and was super simple to make.
