Cooper's Tie

I was changing Cooper's diaper when I noticed that the blue on the changing pad cover matched his plain onesie and I knew just what to do. I had a little piece of the fabric left over so I used my cricut to cut out then ironed on his tie. I LOVE it!!!! Cooper is 10 weeks old already! Time flies!

Time: 5-10 minutes
Cricut (either one)
Paper Dolls cartridge
Heat 'n' Bond Ultra (no sew)
Plain onesie/t-shirt

I don't know what he was looking at but I couldn't get him to look at me no matter what I did.

Cricut Fabric Halloween T-Shirts

So...I've been having a lot of fun playing with my Cricut/Gypsy lately. I have many projects in the works. Here is the latest one that I finished. The girls both picked the same to images from my Mini Monsters cartridge and I added the greeting. I think they turned out spooktacular!
Time: 3-4 hours (this was my first major fabric project so it took me a little longer (5-6 hours) to figure it out and work out the kinks)
  • Cricut (either one will work)
  • Gypsy (optional, but makes this project so much easier)
  • Fabric (assorted colors)
  • Heat 'n' Bond Ultra (no sew)
  • Iron
  • Painters tape (blue, optional but holds down the fabric well on the mat so there is no slipping and doesn't ruin the tackiness of the cutting mat. SAVES your fabric and TIME cutting things out more than once.)
  • T-shirts

I made my witch 5" and my ghost 4" and the greeting 4".

Aren't they just adorable?

Shopping List

I've been wanting to make one of these for a while now to hang on my fridge. I even cut out all the shopping lists and kept grabbing one off the pile as I needed one. Well, today I finally put it together. I think it turned out super cute! Maybe I should make a few for my next boutique....

Owl Punch Class Projects we had more projects than we had time but they were all so cute I couldn't decide! Here are the pics so those who came can finish assembling their Halloween box and those who didn't come are jealous! :) I'm thinking about holding one more class for the owl punch because I had some people not able to make it but really want to come. Leave a comment or send me an e-mail if you'd like to do the owl punch class.

Halloween Treat Box
I started with an 8.25"x8.25" square in Basic Black cardstock. I scored in 2.75" from all directions and then score each corner of the square diagonally (I'll make an official tutorial after my boutique this weekend 11/20).

For our card we used Word Play. It is a fund new stamp set with so much versatility. We also used the new Cork material and a texturez plate with the Big Shot. Super simple yet still super cute! Colors we used were River Rock, Not Quite Navy, and Tangerine Tango.
