I made these Valentines coloring page cards for my granddaughter’s daycare. I am waiting for the Crayons to arrive to add to the Valentines coloring card. I figure I would place two on the card and leave the additional two crayons in the box for the child to take home. Found this cute project on the Cricut Design with my free Cricut access membership. Worth purchasing the Cricut access membership!

Sharing a couple of the kids valentines cards we made today. The cuts were found in the Cricut Design space with some alternations to allow for write and cut. They came out super cute!

My husband was honored to be the best man for his brother’s upcoming wedding. We decided to host a co-ed party at our home to keep things low key and simple. I decided to make custom can coolers for the event. I felt the can coolers would be a great keepsake for our guests and the groom. Since hunting is a favorite past time for the men in our family, I decided to find camo can coolers and design something from the DS geared towards hunting. I found some great green and pink can coolers on Amazon. Using Siser Stretch HTV, I cut my design out and then proceeded to iron on the cuts on the koozies. Just a reminder, when cutting out iron-on with your Cricut, it’s always shiny side down and mirror image. This took me moment to understand as a new user. I absolutely loved how easy Sister Stretch HTV was to use.

A few things I would do differently and lessons learned from this project: go with a smaller image size. The green can coolers, I went too big. I figured this out after I ironed on 25. So I made the image smaller on pink ones. As you look at the picture below, you will see the difference. The larger image size you lose a bit of the lettering when you insert a can. Secondly, I should have gone with a different font. But overall, not horrible for my first project and everyone at the party loved the koozies. I realize I need to start providing step by step pictures of my projects which I believe will more helpful to Cricut newbies like myself. This whole blogging thing is new to me but please bear with me, I figure out the kinks.

I absolutely love my hairstylist and I know she has a great sense of humor. Since the holidays are right around the corner and I wanted to take a gift to her at my last hair appointment. My life is crazy and getting a haircut every 8 weeks can be a struggle. My amazing husband surprised me with a Cricut Maker a couple of weeks ago and this was an opportunity to use my brand new crafting toy! Voila……this is my creation! Can I say, so far I absolutely love Cricut Design Space (DS). The DS offers many options to design a project. My next goal is to learn to workout outside of DS and determine how to create my own designs but in the meanwhile, I am absolutely loving DS. The DS allows you to share your designs on either Facebook or Pinterest, so I have added the cup to Pinterest. Click on the Pinterest hyperlink below and let me know if this allows you to obtain the file to design the cup. Since I designed the cup within DS and it’s not considered a finish product, from my understanding of the Angel Policy, I can’t publish as a SVG. I have received a lot of comments regarding the design and I wanted to figure out how to share. Please comment below and let me know.
