Crafting

Okay so I have been obsessed with crafting lately. It’s my absolute favorite thing to do!! Here are some of the things I have made so far..  

    
 I definitely want to starting making stuff to sell, and start saving up some money for a emergency fund.. but first I need to practice to get better and better..

Well better go to sleep, it’s getting late and I have to be up early for work!

DIY Christmas Gift | Last Name Sign

Good morning, I had an awesome night relaxing, listening to music, and making some christmas gifts for the girls at work.  I  just discovered the power of a Cricut cutting machine + Contact Paper = Stencils.  I was always intemmidated with stencils, but after trying it out I am hooked.  I can’t wait to get some boards to do some more wood signs.

Contact paper is very cheap at Walmart! I got a whole roll of it last year $7 when I got my cricut and I still have more than half a roll, I bought the Con-Tact Self-Adhesive Shelf Liner.  I also went the cheap route and bought Glad Press’n Seal Wrap which I  use for my  transfer method.  It is hard to maneuver sometimes, however it is $5 a roll and it has last me over a year as well.  I learned about the Press and Seal method from Cuttle_fan on Pinterest.  Both of these products have both worked for me great since I have started using my Cricut.

The project below I did the stencil method on burlap and then put it in a black picture frame.  I created one for each of the women in my office for Christmas gifts. I watched a tutorial by Two Hearts One Love Designs on youtube to create the Split letter design in Cricut Design Space.

Another project I completed last night was a key holder.  I found the inspiration from this Pinterest post.  It was very easy to make and I had all the supplies saved up I was waiting for craft night.  All I did was spray paint my blocks and flat black, and hot glued them together.  Then I inserted little hooks on to each block.  I painted the plaque white and then hot glued the keys blocks to it.  TADA! A simple DIY project.

Hope you guys have a great Sunday!

 

Late Night Crafting

So it’s 9 pm and kids are asleep so I thought I would get my craft on!  I wasn’t sure what to make but I knew I wanted to use my Cricut. I looked on Pinterest and 1st image shown above with the yellow frame from Love & Renovations inspired me! I knew I didn’t have a frame I could use at this time so I went with a regular canvas covered it with some fabric I had from Walmart.  Next I cut out the words with my cricut and tada heres what I come up with.  Of course I love the inspirational piece better but not bad for something created in a few minutes.

I have been really bad about hoarding craft supplies and thinking one day I will need it or use it.  I need to stop buying stuff unless I use what I have haha.

On a different note it’s been a while since I blogged. I wanted to catch up and say HI and hope you are having a great weekend.
