Cricut Access Challenge: “Cupid Is Stupid” T-shirt for my son, MO

Cupid Is Stupid T-Shirt for MOToday is Valentine’s Day!

MO hates Valentine’s Day.

I’m not terribly sure why, because I can’t recall that I’ve ever made such a huge deal out of the holiday. It comes. It goes. I give him a little gift and buy chocolate. Maybe we make a special dinner.

But MO just loves to hate the day!

So–for today’s Cricut Access Challenge–I am posting this “Cupid Is Stupid” T-Shirt I designed for him!  It involves some simple layering, because it is two colors, but otherwise it is a pretty simple design!

Even if you don’t enjoy the holiday…I hope you enjoy this project!

Do you know about the TrueControl Knife Blade?

The Cricut TrueControl Knife Blade is a marvelous hand tool that can be used on paper, fabric and vinyl and it will change the way you think about hand tools.

Sure, you probably have used those other craft knives.  But–if you are a clumsy crafter, like me–you have had your share of cuts and pokes when using them.  To be perfectly honest, my experiences with the other craft knives puts it right up there with the other dangerous but necessary hand tool, the glue gun.

Here’s my new YouTube video on how to change the blade on your TrueControl Knife: https://youtu.be/8v4rAFZIDYQ

Thankfully, Team Cricut re-engineered the standard art knife making it my favorite hand tool!  The new knife is ergonomic, doesn’t roll off your work surface and is so SAFE to use–even when replacing the blades!

YouTube Video: Cricut-ized Target Dollar Spot Banner

Target Dollar Spot Felt Banner, Cricut-ized!

As promised, here is the YouTube video about how I turned a $3 Target Dollar Spot red Felt Banner into a gorgeous Retro Valentine’s banner using NEW Cricut Premium Vinyl in Textured Metallic Gold!

https://youtu.be/to9PoRQ2-FA

I discuss the differences between Cricut’s new Premium Vinyl and “the other brand”. 
We talk about the term “permanent” as it relates to vinyl.

You all know how *new* I am to making videos and I have always appreciated your insights and feedback. Thank you!

MO’s suggestion to me was to remind you to SUBSCRIBE to my YouTube channel and to like the videos. He also told me if you “ring the bell” you’ll be notified of all my future videos.

I hope you enjoy it!!

 

This is the original blog post:

I’m back with another great Target Dollar Spot find that I’ve made even better by giving it a little Cricut touch!  And just in time for Valentine’s Day! ❤

I found this great red felt banner at the Target Dollar Spot and I just couldn’t resist!  It was just THREE dollars and was perfect for embellishing with some Cricut vinyl.  The red felt banner consists of seven traditional flags in Valentine-y red felt with white stitching.

It was just begging to be paired with something gold!  

At first I thought I’d use some Cricut Iron-On, but then I remembered I had this roll of new TEXTURED gold vinyl that I’ve been just dying to try!  And I am glad I did!

I know what you’re thinking: “Wouldn’t Iron-On be better on felt?”

The answer is: “Not Always!”

The wonderful texture of this textured vinyl is just perfect with the red felt and, because of its permanent bond, the Cricut Textured Vinyl grabs those felt threads and hangs on and on! LOVE Felt Banner

Furthermore I’m totally digging the amazing texture and how awesome it works with these traditional images.

And, of course, ALL of the images used in this project are available in Cricut Access for free to subscribers–otherwise it wouldn’t be a true Cricut Access Challenge, would it?

I hope you enjoy Cricut-izing these amazing felt banner, which can be used year after year for your Valentine’s Day decor!
