{Going in Circles} Cut it up!

Hi Crafters,

It's times for another great challenge over at this challenge is to create a project using die cuts and circles.

 I used a tone on tone effect with the stamp and circle. 

I used my cuttlebug to cut and emboss the circles. 

We have two wonderful sponsors for this challenge Unity Stamp Co provided the stamps for this challenge.  Cute as a Button is another great sponsor!

Be sure to check out Cut it Up! to link up your projects with circles and a die cut!

Thanks for crafting with us!

Custom Concert Tshirts with Iron on Vinyl

Hi crafters,

I had the pleasure of having little hands in my craft room this past weekend. I helped 2 super excited girls get ready for a Taylor Swift concert. We used the Silhouette iron on vinyl and my cricut to create a custom look. We cut the vinyl with blade depth at 3 and pressure at 3. We reversed the image and put the clear transfer tape side down on the mat.
The text is Opposites Attract, the guitar is from Old West, and the hearts are from George and Basic Shapes. I put the girls' monograms on the guitar.

I used my Jolee's heat affix tool to apply the bling.  They looked adorable in their shirts.  I had a great time making them!

Happy Crafting,

The title for this page is from B is for Boy cricut cartridge. I cut the light green circle from Mini Monograms.

This page has 8.5x11 chevron paper that has been stitched on my sewing machine. The Moments title is from Gyspy Wondering
