December is the month of giving. Whether it's a gift for a holiday party, a coworker or a hostess gift I find myself needing to come up with a lot of gift ideas in December. My go to is always a bottle of wine but I like to dress it up to make it feel more like a gift. Target has these buffalo check wine bags in the dollar spot for $3. How cute are they?! I mean even "as is" they would make a great gift but I thought I would add a little more holiday spirit with HTV and my Cricut Easy Press.
It's December and Christmas time is here. That means holiday parties, work parties, santa parades, yankee swaps and the list goes on. I always like to dress festively for these events. Today I am going to show you how to make this DIY Merry and Bright shirt with HTV (heat transfer vinyl).
I posted about how much I loved the Hearth and Hand collection at Target and since then I have been staring at my Letters to Santa mailbox wondering how I could incorporate a letter to Santa. On instagram I have been seeing a lot of handlettering on scrolls for Christmas. I have even looked up a few of them but they are bit expensive for my budget. I decided why not try to create a smaller version using kraft paper and my Cricut!.
Today I am excited to show you guys how I stencil farmhouse style wood signs. Now it seems like these style signs are everywhere right now but they come with a pretty hefty price tags. I want to show you how you can make them at home with some lumber and your Cricut.
Some days you just feel like crafting and some days you just want it to feel like Spring. This is one of those days. Today I want to show you guys one of my first Cricut projects, "It's a beautiful day" Spring wreath sign. I was stuck at home during a snow day last week dreaming of Spring weather. Well I decided to make my own beautiful day.
I just got my Cricut Explore Air 2 and I have been non-stop crafting since it has arrived. Of course I want to tell you all about the Cricut and also some tips I learned to help get you started.
What is a Cricut? A Cricut is a machine that allows you to cut. Think of it as a printer but instead of ink it uses a fine blade to cut what would normally print. And it doesn't only cut you can also use a pen to write or the scorer tool to score.
