Arts, crafts and everything in between: Would I buy a cricut maker again and other cricut topics

So I know that most you know that I am 90 % a fan of cricut but the 10 % is not. I am not shy about voicing my opinions, hopeful in a matter that is respectful and true to myself.  I know that all people or companies, are not perfect or  still working on things. This is just my thoughts and feelings.

The little crafter show: Cricut printable vinly iron uniconr tee.

I am so excited and happy about this project that I am sure with you all today. This is my third time using my easy press and first time using the Cricut printable vinyl. Just a heads up I have heard that Cricut is no longer making their printable vinyl but other companies are so you could look into those if you want to make a project using printable vinyl. 
     The reason why I chose to use printable vinyl because it will print all the layers out. I can quickly add to a project and not worry about what layer goes where. It is so very simple and quick. 






      In designing the shirt, I did run into a problem forget that I am using a black children's tee so you would not see the eyelashes of the unicorn. You could either turn the printable file into a cut file, using the slice button. After you do choose the colors you want or need and then turn the file back into a printable file. I am also lucky enough that the Etsy.com seller sells more than one kind of file, so I just used the cu…

The little crafter show: St. Patty wreath.

I don't know about you but I  kind of got a little tired of seeing my winter wreath because I didn't make a one for Valentines day so the door was bare for a bit. I normally don't always add a little décor on the door of St. Patties day but this time around I did.
    This was so fast, easy and so much fun. I used my printer, cricut,some printable card stock and some foam tape.







Supplies and how I put everything together
I bought the foam wreath at Michaels, add some Tim Holtz tissue paper with some mod podge.   or glue and a foam brush. 
I then used cricut design space to chose my images and size them at 6x4 and then chose to print and cut my images. 
So I images printed out first, I used some printable white card stock. 
Then once that was done, loaded the images to my cricut maker (any cricut machine will work for this if it has the print and cut mode) to cut them out
I then cut pieces of foam tape to the images and then stuck them on the wreath. The reason why I u…

So here is a flip though of what I created in my MAMI memory keeper for February. I  used a lot of their memory keeper planner and planner stickers. I used a few stickers that I got from Etsy.com for my big planner but I found they worked amazing well for my memory keeper as well.
