Cricut Magic… Again!


I am still in awe as I continue to create projects with my Cricut. Here I’ll chronicle several projects, including glass itching and iron on vinyl. This past Christmas I even used it to cut stiffened felt to make snowflake ornaments that I used as gift tags for folks. (Sorry no photos… I got busy and forgot!)

First let’s take a look at a glass etching project I finished for a Christmas gift. Here I used the Cricut to make a stencil out of inexpensive contact paper and used it to mask the bottom of the dish off to use the cream on… A few of my fellow crafty-type friends came over for a craft-night and we etched glass… one of the ladies completed a 9x13 glass baking dish just like this one… my other friend monogrammed hot chocolate mugs for her sons! We used the Cricut to make all the stencils.

Next is what seems to be my favorite use for the Cricut right now.. Iron-on Vinyl! I’ve made lots of t-shirts and even a tote bag for a friend…

I had seen shirts similar to these online for upwards of 25 dollars… well a trip to HL and 30 minutes later I had my very own creations!

Here’s a bag I made for a friend… I bet you can guess what she likes to do in her spare time…

I used the Cricut and regular vinyl to make ornaments for my brother and his family for Christmas…

Here’s the last one… I tagged my Cricut!


  1. HI! Beautiful things you make! How can I get the "love" design?

    1. Hey Lis, thanks for the complement. I created the 'love' design in my Cricut using the Lyrical Letters (Jumbo) font and the badge from the 3d Hats collection. The Heart came from the Craftroom Basic.
      Hope this helps! Happy Crafting!

introducing new additions to the family

To those that don’t know me too well might think that this blog title means there’s going to be tiny little feet running around our house soon, and you’d be half right … and those that do know me will know that this means that those tiny little feet are actually paws! A dear friend ours came home from trip to Texas to find the little kitten (of about 9 months) she left in the care of her husband and 3 sons was prego! I’m not saying her husband is to blame, in his defense those 3 sons are a handful!! She let me know that if we were ready to be kitty parents again we had first pick of the litter… well, as it turns out I might have been the hold up all this time for us to jump into pet parent-hood. Mike has all for it! So I told her that we would claim 2 of the little bundles when they made their appearance… then we waited for them to be born… April 19th around 5 in the evening I got the first text that the little ones were on the way! Our friend is an experienced animal person so she ha

Thought I had Quit....

You guys thought I had died... I know... Well... I wish I had a story to tell that would explain my lax of posting to this blog... Other than to say life has gotten in the way. Cute kitties, baking, cycling and work have all consumed most of my free time. What few minutes I had to myself were spent with my eyes closed hoping no one would need me for anything! But I'm back and am going to give it another try. I have had lots of projects in the craft room to share so there's no lack of content... just lack of free time to share! Here's some random photos from the last few months... and check back soon... I'm working on a craft post! This boy KNOWS how to nap! Off on new adventures! This one LOVES to help! ... and he's pretty nosey! what a tummy! I love all things snowflake-y! trying to decide if the bag is for his guest... or HIM! cruising to visit family...  on an adventure! my fi

Cricut magic

I am really enjoying my Cricut. This year I’ve made all kinds of cool things with it, cards, banners, tags, stencils, snowflakes… But my favorite thing so far has to be a gift I made for my sister for Christmas this year! My sister is quite the baker and takes her treats all over town, to others to enjoy, whether its the girls meeting or a family dinner, she likes to share her confections with everyone. I had come across a Pin that showed the etched bottom of a glass 9x13 pan and thought that would be cute to make for her… But the more I thought about it the more I talked myself out of making it. The 9x13 would limit her to using it for brownies or dump cakes (which she does bake these) but I wanted to do something special for her cakes and cupcakes … Then, Inspiration hit while enjoying a leisurely stroll through my local Michael's Craft store… I came across a display of Wilton cake carriers and then it hit me… why not use the Cricut to personalize it with Beth’s name using th
