Cricut Glitter Vinyl Shirt

My fabulous girl was home last weekend on a quick visit from college.  She works at the Apple store on her college campus and one of the running jokes from her boss is saying #teamEliza whenever she does something awesome at work. She has a team meeting coming up this week so we made this joke shirt for her to wear - too funny and too cute! She told me I need to make one that says #EpicMom.  Awww!
Cricut Glitter Vinyl is the bomb - seriously can't wait to make a shirt for myself with some of this stuff!

Zombie Apocolypse Response Team T-Shirts

I couldn't resist making a couple of fun shirts for my older kids for Halloween this week.I saw a similar shirt on pinterest and knew I had to make one using the Artistry font as the letters are easy to weed with their solid insides. 

I used Cricut Flex Iron On for these - it is a very stretchy kind of vinyl so that once it put it on an item, it should flex with it and hopefully stay on nicely.  Seriously a pain in the butt to weed though because it doesn't cut quite as cleanly as the other vinyl and you have to pull it off where it sticks and stretches.  It took two sets of hands to weed the yellow shirt and I had to do the green one on my own.
I'll let you know once I start washing and drying the items how things stay on.  I'm planning on washing inside out and probably air drying first and then try drying in the dryer. They really were a blast to make so I hope they stay on!  I have lots of ideas for Christmas presents this year if they do!

My Very First Cricut Iron On T-Shirt!

I *finally* took the plunge and made my very first Cricut iron on t-shirt!  I was a bit intimidated by the whole vinyl thing which was silly as it was so easy to cut on my Explore and used just a regular iron to transfer.
If you don't already know, a couple of days ago (October 21, 2015) was Back to the Future day - the day in the movie that Doc takes Marty into the future.  My youngest kiddo really likes the trio of movies and even has the Marty McFly holographic hat so when I saw someone post with an SVG of a DeLorean car that was free I knew I had to make a shirt for my kiddo with it on it.  Then I saw the video that Doc (Christopher Lloyd) put out on that day with this quote on it, found a free Back to the Future font and ba-da-bing ba-da-boom I had the finished shirt.
Epic Mom points from the kiddo - doesn't get any better than that! I had so much fun I made a couple of more shirts that I'll be sharing in the next few days so stay tuned!

Thanks for stopping by today and stay crafty my friends!

Heart 2 Heart Challenges - Create with Your Cricut!

Today's challenge at Heart2Heart Challenges is to create with your Cricut!  By now you all know that I adore my Cricut Explore and all our amazing CTMH cartridges.  They are my go-to carts for just about every project I create.  There are SO many amazing cuts I almost didn't know what to make but I finally decided on a fun halloween pop up card mixing Artfully Sent with Artistry to send to my daughter for dorm decor.
I mixed our new Nevermore papers with some fun glitter paper and vellum for a textural treat!
I added a few squares of vellum for the spooky ghosts and some glitter paper for the moon and the tiny crows.

I think she's going to get a kick out of this one!  I love sending her happy mail - I always get a text the day she receives it and she keeps the cards on her desk for a couple of weeks to decorate her space.

I hope you'll join us at Heart2Heart Challenges this week and break out your Cricut or your die cuts for some challenge fun!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Heart 2 Heart Challenges - Let's Get Sketchy!

I really enjoy using sketches to get myself started on projects and today at Heart2Heart Challenges we have an AWESOME sketch to get our creative juices flowing!

I grabbed my CTMH Artistry cartridge and decided to use the fabulous gemstone cuts to create a shimmery flashy motivational card to send to my daughter.  It gave me a chance to use our new White Glitter Paper and Gold Foil Tape as well as three of our new cardstock colors - Sapphire, Eggplant and Fern. This card is full of shiny bling and can still be slipped into an envelope for mailing.

October Stamp of the Month Blog Hop - Twinkle

Welcome to the October Stamp of the Month Blog Hop where we are featuring our Twinkle holiday themed stamp set.  If you've come here from Maureen's Blog you are on the right track. If you get lost along the way you can find the complete list of CTMH Consultants participating in the hop HERE.

I made a fun bright Christmas card using a cut from our Artbooking cartridge and watercolors.  
I started by watercoloring the tree and then embossed the light strings and big lightbulbs on top. I scattered a few of our Gold Sequins on the tree for ornaments and finished off by stamping the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black (so happy we are selling this ink now!) and framing a smaller panel with Blue Shimmer Trim.
  This card is a bit out of my normal style but I do like experimenting with more clean and simple designs. To purchase any of the products I've used and pick up your limited time Twinkle stamp set, visit my shopping site:
