Birthday Card

A friend asked me to make a birthday card for her. Her only requirements were to include pink, lime green, & orange and make it girly.

I immediately thought of my Forever Young cartridge! But I wasn't quite sure of the design. I pulled out my January 2011 issue of CardMaker magazine and turned to page 74. There is a winter-themed happy birthday card that was perfect!

I used foam tape to add dimension to the diecut & the end result was great.

"Inspired By... Fridays" coming soon!

Cricut Cartridge Exploration: Nifty Fifties

Over at Stampin' Dymonz Scrap Shack, there is a group for those of use who love our diecutting machines. In that group, there's a little thing called "Cartridge Exploration" where the members choose one of the Cricut cartridges & create a project to share with the other members. I decided to try my hand at it.

I created the card from the Nifty Fifties cartridge handbook. It is a cute little card & I can see it being given as a mother's day card or just because type of card for anyone especially if they are into fashion or sewing.

I'm not a fan of pink, so I decided to go with purple, black & white. The recipe called for:
  • cardstock: white, pink {I used purple metallic}, black, pink dotted {purple patterned paper}
  • ribbon: back patterned
  • brads: 4 pink {I used purple}
  • hole punch
  • paper trimmer
  • foam squares {I used 3M foam tape}
  • adhesive
The card measures 6" by 7". I was excited because aside from the card base, I was able to use all scraps!

The dress & dress frame are from the Nifty Fifties cartridge & cut at 4". The dress frame was cut in back. The dress is cut in white, and the layer 1 (dress pieces) were cut in metallic purple.

The card was actually pretty easy to make & even though it is a fifties themed cartridge, I can see plenty of cuts that can be used for a variety of projects!

Let me know what you think!

{a few tips - I used Charcoal ink to ink the edges of my black cuts because my cardstock had a white core; I like foam tape because I can pick the size I need, there a nifty (LOL) video on YouTube with a knot tying trick that I like to use that keeps them neat & tidy everytime - when I find it, I'll come back & share; I think metallic cardstock is the best thing ever gives you subtle bling}

Winner Time!

Sooooo... I didn't make it to 350 followers today {I know there is still more time, but for me to get 85 followers in less than an hour is pushing it, even for me LOL}

So, it is time to announce the winner from the 250 follower quest. Let me tell you - it was a bunch of work just to tally up the entries & make sure everyone got credit for how much they helped me (Thanks Again Everyone!)

After much cutting & pasting & visiting blogs to verify info, I came up with 266 total entries! That is so amazing! I got a chance to read & reread some of your posts & again I was floored by the support & response to help a fellow crafter out that I almost cried.

However, you all are reading this post for one reason & one reason only {smile} and that's to see if you or a friend will become the new owner of the Freshly Picked or Designer Calendar Cricut cartridge.

With 266 entries, my darling daughter got tired of waiting for me to get everything ready so she could pick the winner & she fell asleep :( So, I turned to to do the job for me.

Entry #197 was this post:

Love Is... Wall Art

Happy Good Friday!

A few weeks ago, my cousin asked me to create some wall art for her. She had purchased some vinyl & had finally figured out what she wanted it to say.

She came up with a combination of scriptures about Love.

I used my Cricut Design Studio, my Expression & my 12x24 mat to create the design. I used the Calligraphy Collection, MS Elegant Cake Art, MS Seasonal Cake Art, & Cindy Loo cartridges for the fonts.

Weeding out all the little pieces inside the letters was horrendous! But my cousin enjoyed doing it, so it worked out well.

Oh, and I didn't have transfer tape, so we used a wide roll of masking tape to transfer the vinyl to the wall... Whew, what a process that was. But she loves it & that's all that matters :)

Birdie Card - Cricut Cartridge Chaos Challenge #14 - Indie Art

For the Cricut Cartridge Giveaway/350 Follower Quest - click here

Over at More Than Favors, they have a weekly challenge featuring one of the Cricut cartridges - Cricut Cartridge Chaos Challenge. Usually, I just enjoy the beautiful creations I see, but this week, I promised you all a post everyday, so I figured I would join in!

I had to have the Indie Arts cartridge when I saw it, but I didn't break down & get it until I saw it was available on I still feel like I haven't used it enough, so I am happy that this is the cartridge this week (my week off).

I decided to go with a card. I chose the bird image... and didn't know where to go from there...

So, I thought about some of the things I have wanted to try & came up with this -

Cricut Cartridges - Bird (Indie Art), Card Base (Ashlyn's Alphabet), Mat (Plantin Schoolbook)
Cardstock - Card base (The Paper Company), Mat (DCWV LaCreme Mat Stack), Bird & Wing Accent (DCWV Linen Closet Mat Stack)
Sentiment Sticker - Colorbok Life's Blessings Sticker Pack
Ribbon - Offray Spool of Ribbon
Ink - Charcoal (ColorBox)
Tools - Cricut, Gypsy, Sizzix Texture Boutique, Corner Chomper, Zig 2-Way Glue Chisel Tip, ATG, 3M Mounting Tape

I wanted to make the little birdie peek through the front of the card, so I used the Gypsy to weld the shadow of the bird image to the card base. I also wanted to have a raised layered look on the front of the card, so I welded that same shadow image to the mat (cut in black glitter cardstock & ran through the Texture Boutique). The bird (in metallic white with glitter blue wing accents) is actually in the inside of the card peeking through "its shadow" to the outside. I just love how this came out & will probably do some type of spin on this a little more often.

Hope you enjoyed it!

Just a Few Cards

I was so excited that I reached my goal that I decided to make a few really quick cards.

I grabbed the Earth & Sky Linen Textured Cardstock textured value pack from The Paper Company (sold at Joann). I like this paper for the texture & ease of use - creases well, doesn't tear when embossed, & holds ink well - but wish it was thicker.

I also pulled out DCWV Mariposa Chipboard Embellishments (caught them on clearance a year or so ago & hadn't used them) and Colorbok Life's Blessings Sticker Pack (another clearance buy). Add in some ribbon from my stash & a few sheets from my DCWV mat stacks and I was all set to go!

On this card, I used my Sizzix Texture Boutique & my new Tim Holtz Alterations (embossing folders) in Damask ~ I just love this!

My favorite in this impromptu set is this horizontal card featuring a sheet from the new DCWV Royal Garden mat stack. I just love the foil & bold colors of that stack!

I'm still on a quest to get to 350 followers this week so I can give away both Cricut cartridges! Click here for more details.

Also, there's a challenge going on in the Craftin' Sistahs group on Facebook. Using this picture as inspiration, create a card or layout & link to this post by 11:59pm on Thursday, April 24th.

My Core’dinations Creative Frenzy

Core'Dinations is having a design team call & I decided to pull some of my projects together & give it a shot.

I am quite partial to the Gemstones Collection. I love, love, love shiny things & I feel that this paper makes my projects pop! I have a small stash of other Core'Dinations papers too and love working with them.

For a Super Bowl 2011 challenge, I reached for my Gemstones paper in Citrine & Yellow Topaz to give my bee & hearts a little more dimension & attraction.

For this quick condolences card, I reached for Gemstones cardstock in Sapphire for the mat for my sentiment. I used 3M foam tape to give it a little lift & the recipient was glad to receive the card.

These invitations were a big hit! I used Gemstones cardstock in both Amethyst & Sapphire to create these beauties. I randomly ripped the base of each invitation & used a coordinating chalk ink to add color to the exposed edge... the ripped piece was not wasted either - I used the opposite ripped piece to add to the base under the wording inside to bring the whole invitation together.

It's so fun to look back at projects & find new inspiration in them! Hope you enjoyed it!

Thursday Test: Screen Printing Paints/Inks

Happy Thursday Morning!

If you've been following along, I took advantage of Michael's great sale on the YuDu last week and brought one home. I tried it out on a few projects & love the way they all turned out {let me take a moment to say that I already had YuDu experience from my job with ASM/Campaigners for ProvoCraft last summer, so I am a little ahead of the learning curve even though I have much more to learn}.

I decided to try some things out - vinyl images versus the emulsion process, for example. I also did a little research on the inks that ProvoCraft makes and looked into using some other paints to see how things worked out.

The YuDu brand inks are water-based and worked well for the most part when I used them last summer. I did have a problem with the paint running (leaving a shadowy effect on my screen-printed image) with the paint sometimes - not sure if this is human error or a characteristic of the paint because it seems with practice & attention to detail, I haven't had this issue on any of the projects I really wanted LOL.

On the site, they do a comparison of different types of inks/paints with the YuDu machine here. I do agree that the paints can stain the screen, however, if you read it closely, they mention that the YuDu ink can stain the screen as well.

I did not try fabric paint or any of the others, but I did find at Joann Plaid Simply Screen (they have a full line of screen printing stencils, paints, adhesives, & glitters and more) paints in a wide range of colors. And based on price alone - $2.99 compared to YuDu's $10.99 - I decided to try them out.

YuDu InksPlaid Simply Screen
Ease of Useeasy to use; twist top helps to control paint distributioneasy to use; distributes a fine line of paint
Costabout $10.99 for one 3oz. bottleabout $2.99 for 2oz. bottle
Ease of Cleaningif rinsed off immediately, pretty easy to clean & does not stain screen; if not rinsed off immediately, will heavily stain screenif rinsed off immediately, pretty easy to clean & does not stain screen; if not rinsed off immediately, will slightly stain screen
Paint Salvagetop screws off to allow for excess paint to be returned to the jarpaint cannot be returned to the bottle
Colors AvailableI have found 19 colors of YuDu ink - 12 of which seem to be only available in 3-pk setsthere are at least 27 colors of paint available
ExtrasYuDu has recently released adhesive, foil, & flocking (these can be used with the new 70 mesh screen)Simply Screen makes adhesive & has glitter & foil
My thoughtsThe YuDu inks are okay & work well with the YuDu. The color selection is lacking. The price, however, does not make me want to go to these paints as a first choice.I really enjoyed using these paints. They offered the colors I needed without the need for mixing. The price allows me to get every color I can get my hands on! LOL!

In the picture below of my daughter's and my matching shirts, I used the YuDu Wine ink (from the Muted colors pack) and I used the Simply Screen Bippity Boppity Blue paint. The quality of coverage is virtually the same & I don't think I am missing out on anything by not using the more expensive brand. What do you think?

And the baby blankets from this post were also done with the Simply Screen paints in Pink Pony & Fairytale.

For other YuDu-ers out there, what paints/inks do you use? What other techniques do you use with your YuDu?

Thanks for stopping by! And don't forget that I am on a quest for 250 followers - check out all the details here!

Fun with My YuDu!

On Thursday, Michael's had the best price I have ever come across on the YuDu - reg. $299, it was on sale for $99. I made up my mind that I would sacrifice something this month & get it.

I made a call to the nearest Michael's & found out they had two left. I took a "lunch break" and headed out to the store.

The box was alot larger than I thought it would be. I had worked with the YuDu last summer, but never saw one boxed. Because it was so big, it stayed boxed in the livingroom until the weekend when I had time to figure out where to put my new toy... I mean investment ;)

I found a link to a video where the creative crafter used vinyl on the underside of her screen instead of hassling with the emulsion. I figured that would be a great way to try a few things out without wasting my emulsion & permanently setting my screen (there's no emulsion remover in the box - what's up with that ProvoCraft?)

I also found that the YuDu brand paint was a little expensive. Heading to the internet again, I did a little research & found that the paint needed to be waterbased & designed for screenprinting. So, I decided to venture over into the t-shirt section of Joann & see what the price difference was... Well, PC sells the YuDu paint (3 oz.) for about $7.99-$10.99 per bottle & Plaid Simply Screen (2 oz.) is $2.99. So, since I was under budget constraints, I decided to give it a try <-- I'll come back on Thursday & do a little comparison for my Thursday Test.

I like the projects I did so far - baby blankets for a friend's baby shower & "matching shirts" for me and my daughter.

Stay tuned this week for more adventures with the YuDu!

(Don't forget I still have Cricut Cartridges up for grabs - send your friends over for more chances to win!)

How-To: Making Your Own T-shirts with Freezer Paper

So, everyone has been asking about how to make t-shirts (design shirts) using freezer paper... here is the how-to!

Gather your supplies:
  • plain t-shirt
  • Reynolds' Freezer Paper, cut to size (for example, 12" by 12" if working with the Cricut Expression)
  • iron
  • ironing board
  • cardboard
  • fabric paint
  • Cricut & Gypsy/Design Studio (or some other way to create you desired design on your shirt)
  1. Create you desired design. Using the Gypsy or Design Studio program, lay your desired design out on the "mat". When you have it sized just right, use the flip design feature (the design needs to be cut backward, especially if it contains words, to appear properly on the shirt). <-- I also center mine to give me a good border around the actual design.
  2. Place your freezer paper shiny side up (there is a shiny side & a matte side to the freezer paper).
  3. On the Cricut Expression, set the speed to 3 and the pressure to 3 (I never change my blade depth, so it is on 4).
  4. Load the mat into the Cricut machine & cut your design.
  5. Remove your image from the mat. BE CAREFUL to keep any internal cuts along with the outline of the image/phrase. In the picture below, you will see that I kept the internal cutouts to make the details in the "D".
(sorry for the poor picture quality but the freezer paper is white & my daughter chose a white shirt)
  1. Lay your shirt flat on your ironing board (or another flat hard surface). Lay your freezer paper (outline) onto the shirt SHINY SIDE DOWN - the shiny side is the side that sticks to the shirt.
  2. Once you have the positioned the outline exactly as you want it, use your iron to adhere the freezer paper to the shirt (I use my iron on the cotton setting without steam).
  3. After ironing on the outline, use the actual cutout to help position any internal pieces, being sure to only iron down the internal pieces as in the picture below. {now that I think about it, you could iron the whole thing down & remove the image - the design you actually want on the shirt - before you paint it... I might try this next time}
  4. Now that the ironing is complete, insert the cardboard into the shirt - this will protect the back of the shirt from paint when you are painting your design.
  5. Now it's time to paint! Be careful not to go over the edge (outer rim) of the freezer paper. DO be generous to make sure there are no light areas in your design once it is dried.
  6. Follow the directions on the paint for drying time. (On this particular shirt, we used Tulip Velveteen Fabric Paint in Blue and it stated to dry flat for 4hrs.)
After our 4hr drying time, we removed the freezer paper & viola! We got a clean crisp Detroit Tigers inspired "D" shirt!

If you try it out, come back by here & show us what you did!

Let's Go Tigers! (Still on a Mission for 250 Followers)

Hello Everyone!

Thank you all so much for your support in my quest (click this link to enter to win a cricut cartridge & learn all about the many ways to help me in my quest here)

My daughter & I are making shirts again {check out her first shirt here}. Next Friday, she can wear a Detroit Tigers shirt to school, but she doesn't have one... That to me was an excellent excuse to pull out the freezer paper, the Gypsy, the Cricut Expression, and the iron!

The Detroit Tigers have a few symbols including the Old English "D". The capital D from the Blackletter cartridge is just perfect!

We have homework tonight, so we'll have to wait until tomorrow to see her finished product.

{Remember: commenting on this post is another entry to win the cartridge!}
