When life gets too hard to stand...


Here's another vinyl project using Black Decor Elements Vinyl sheet and my cricut. It is on a square plate. Talk about a fast project!

Hem your blessings

I bought this large serving dish at a local store and knew just what I was going to put on it! The Hem Your Blessings Decor Element! This is the small decor element (#121635). I still need to test the heat factor of these Decor Elements on platters, but I can tell you that I have a water bottle that has been decorated with Decor Elements that has survived hundreds of washes in the dishwasher. So... I will post my findings on this one soon!

More vinyl!

I found this board at a local craft store (on sale of course)! It was already painted too! I used my Cricut to cut some letters from Black and Pretty in Pink Decor Element Vinyl Sheets. I used the transfer tape that came with the vinyl to apply the letters right to the wood! Another easy and quick project!

Grandma Plate

No, I'm not a Grandma! But I know a few that would love this charger/plate! I used my Cricut to cut a sheet of Sahara Sand Decor Element Vinyl (#118812). I used a piece of transfer tape that came with the vinyl and applied it right to the plate! Ta da!! A cute, inexpensive gift that even Grandma will love!

Leave a message...

I bought an 8x10 canvas and covered it with our fabulous new Designer Fabric. This one is called Deck the Halls (#121716). And guess what... I still have a ton of it left over for another board or three! These are extra wide fat quarters that measure 28"x18" for $9.95. A great deal if you ask me!

On to the project...
I used a staple gun to attach the fabric and Crochet Trim to the back side of the canvas. Easy!! I then used 2 Vintage Brads to give it a more finished look.

Here's a close up of the Crochet Trim and Vintage Brad.

I've never sent Thanksgiving cards. But every year at a certain craft fair, I have requests for them. So... here's one that I will be offering!
I used a Very Vanilla base. The leaves were cut using the Stampin' Up! Sizzix Leaves #2 die. The colors are Cajun Craze, Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler, and Daffodil Delight. The polka dot paper strip is from the new Designer Series Paper pack! The Gratitude sentiment is from the Define your Life set. I used Cajun Craze Classic ink for the sentiment and to put some definition on the leaves.
