I had a used mirror and didn't know what to do with it.  I saw this free ornament image on Cricut Craft Room. I used vinyl from The letters are from Wild Card.
 Embellish with some Christmas greenery and Wall-la-la!  Something pretty to hang on a wall!

T Shirt Project

This is a T Shirt project I made for my son and his wife.  You can probably guess his name (LOL)!
Anyway I am having fun designing personal T Shirts with Expressions Vinyl and my Cricut Expression.

T Shirt made with Expressions Vinyl

I wanted my hubby and I to wear  shirts to our family reunion coming up.  I designed this with our immediate family around a tree.  I used Cricut cartridges Blackletter and Classic Font.  For the tree I used Cricut Wild Card.  The tree is the new glitter vinyl from Expressions Vinyl.  It went on so easy and looks so pretty.  The pic doesn't due it justice.  This is the back of the T

This next pic is the front where a pocket would be.

Primitive Coat Rack

This project came from Pinterest. Wish I could take credit for it!  My Daughter and Hubby made it in a couple of hours.  It turned out so nice that I just had to publish it.

The outside dimensions are 11 inches by 24 inches.  They went to the pasture behind our home and searched out some hedge with branches. Because hedge doesn't shrink with drying, it will retain its original shape.  Old barn wood was used for the frame.

Have a Hoppy Easter! 2012

Have a Hoppy Easter!!

I used Cricut Storybook for fonts and center medallion.  For the body piece I cut 2 strips @ 2" x 12".  The head piece was one strip 1.5" x 12".

Etching glass with Cricut and Expressions vinyl

Hubby and I have been doing some glass etching.  This is a set of mugs with PROST! (German for cheers!) we made for our son and (German) dau-in-law.  I found a web site that gives instructions, so thought I'd share it:

Iron on Vinyl with my Cricut

I have been experimenting with vinyl.  Here is a project I made with the iron on vinyl. 
girl Babe.....boy Baby

Something I made

I was wondering what I could do with all those T shirts I never wear anymore.  TaDa!  I cut them up and made a rag rug! I found the instructions on cutting the body of the shirt in one long strip on Craft Passion
 Then I pulledg on the strip to 'curl' it.  After winding in a yarn ball, I selected a very large crochet hook.  Each color is a different T shirt.
