Well, I failed it! I tried to cut the thick felt from Joann's and I think it is too thick for our machine to handle. Since I wasn't sure if my felt cut was going to be a good one, I decided to use the wonder under to cut fabric (cotton) and it was a beautiful success! Let me show you some pictures.
I first prepared my materials. slightly iron the wonder under on the back of the felt/fabric.
I am baaack!!! Our vacation time is over, we left sunny Lima, Peru and came back to cold and grey Atlanta! I am happy to sleep in my own bed but not so happy about winter weather, I am not a winter person, it depresses me to no end! At least we were sitting by the pool the day Atlanta saw Snow Apocalypse happen. LOL
My friend Cyndi asked me to make some thank you cards for her sister, when I was finished I knew my cards were missing something and then I remembered I bought this Stationery box from the Silhouette Store and I decided to make one using the colors Cyndi's sister likes:
With Christmas over it's time to get ready to say GOODBYE 2013!!! I made some super cute calendars to give to somebody...lol. I just made them because they are cute! If you want one, send me an email! I only have 11 of them ;)
Every year I like to send cards to our friends and family. We don't have many relatives (alive) in the States and with shipping costs it has been harder to mail a simple letter or card to my family in Peru. This year I decided to just downgrade and send a handful of truly handmade cards to the people I know will cherish and save them. The rest are just getting a digital picture of my kids ha!
It's Cameo Creation's time and we have a new challenge for you: HAPPY BIRTHDAY! My lovely daughter's birthday is on the 16th and this was such a great opportunity to continue with our tradition. I always make a card for my daughter but this time I asked her to color the main image on my card and here it is...shhh, she doesn't know this is her card :)
As I have mentioned it before I have taken a new hobby, sewing! My very first project was this small wristlet wallet.
The zipper is all jacked up! LOL but I still love it, it is big enough to put my ID and credit cards and phone so it works for me. You can find the tutorial (and many more) on the Crafty Gemini's blog.
My friend Gina makes some super cute print and cut designs for her sons' shirts and she inspired me to make some for my kids too. She uses Transfermations brand but I didn't find it at Walmart so I went ahead and grabbed what was in stock, Avery Iron on T-Shirt Transfer Paper.
This regular Hanes brand T-shirt was decorated with Avery Transfer and I love the quality, the brightness is excellent and the paper is so easy to apply too. I bought the paper for dark fabrics. I believe is cheaper at Walmart too.
If you want an option to HTV (vinyl), this could be right for you! All you have to do is grab your image from the web, trace it with the SIL studio, print on your transfer paper and cut with your cameo. The entire project took me less than 30 minutes. I think finding the right image was the toughest part of all.
Oh, follow the application instructions on the box and use the tissue paper that comes with it too. This will ensure you don't over heat your paper.
