Crafty Haul – Pick me up.

It’s been a crazy few months here and me and the little man decided it was about time to have a lil pick me up splurge.   I had an appointment today and lo and behold… it was bang right next door to Hobby Lobby, a new one we have never been to before.  But one we shall most definitely be going back to. Their clearance and sale selection was great…and even better…. the shopping spree was a gift.  Can’t beat that kinda gift 🙂

But it’s been a busy week all round so we had a little splurge to spoil ourselves and get ready to  get down to business with more new Abandoned Art Projects and Christmas gifts etc. We picked up a whole bunch of really great deals..so expect to see a lot of this in upcoming posts.

We’ll be sticking and stamping,coloring and woodburning and allsorts of craziness.  so many fun techniques to play with… he’s sure to have fun !

Check out this little pile of goodies.. Tim Holzt inks, stamps, stickers, some really cool Christmas tissue paper and ..I couldn’t resist this awesome paper pad by the Paper studio at 50 %.  there are a couple of extra son the pic that didn’t come from Hobby Lobby.. like the printable vellum and the Gina Marie dies and bling….and a bunch of clear stamps that I picked up.. but can’t show YET lol. And I have a shipment on it’s way over .. which I can’t wait to get and show you all…. but it could be a few weeks before that gets here.


But the best  part of todays haul…. my son, who is 5 … found a flower in the clearance section … and absolutely insisted we had to buy it … because he wanted to give mommy a flower and he thought I would like it.

he was wrong… I didn’t like it…

I LOVED IT!!!!

….. he made my insides go as gooey as chocolate brownie… It was one of those moments you just wish would never end. It’s not the greatest picture… sorry…. but this mommy is happy as a clam.  This is the most beautiful flower any man … or “little” man has ever given me…and it was offered with love,… not as a bribe, not as an apology … or any other reason I have ever had flowers given..it was given just  because he thought I would like it and it would make me smile.


..and I am still smiling  🙂

The New Cricut Maker Machine… Easy Press and more!

 if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.

Well Cricut sure have been busy… and so have we.  Summer vacations (I wish), getting ready for back to school and all those fun summer weddings and get togethers.  As most of you know  my son is  going to be homeschooled, so crafting is a huge part of our life.

No one said education had to be boring… right LOL

Even though he isn’t technically starting homeschooling till next year, we still do a lot of fun projects designed to help him learn and have fun and be creative all at the same time. Part of that is our abandoned art projects, which is so much fun to do with kids and teaches them to give freely and enjoy it.

Now I wish we had this new Cricut Maker, have you seen this beauty yet? It’s due for release TODAY !!!!. I checked out the video and almost  died when I saw that not only will it cut fabrics, but it’s also  cutting wood  as well as all the stuff we usually do on our Cricuts like paper and vinyl.

Interchangeable cutting heads and the separate pen holders too. I used to own a scroll saw many years ago and this looks like it’s going to do the same kind of fret work that I did back then…..  VERY cool.  Can’t wait to see this one roll out… !!! woohoo.  I think my stepdaughter in Australia  might like this one, she’s a big sewer.

Shop new arrivals from Cricut!

and then of course there is the recent arrival of the light box... I know  that would be really useful for  us, specially me with my aging eyes.

Shop the Cricut BrightPad today!

…and then they up the ante with the new Cricut Easypress..  think of all the fun shirts you can create for back to school.  Kids just love getting a new school wardrobe every year… and the money you can save and being unique… what kid doesn’t want to have something cool and unique.  I hate ironing, but this… I have to confess I think I’d use for every day ironing too lol.  I know this is something one of my DT girls would love, she’s big on HTV projects… I am so sorry Donna lol.  Hopefully you already saw that and won’t blame me haha.  It looks so cool though doesn’t it.

Shop new arrivals from Cricut!Cricut sure are trying to  get us set up for winter with some fab new toys to keep us busy once the summer is over and we get done with back to school, wedding and summer projects. Then the weather starts to cool and we have more time indoors.  It’s right on target for when most of us start thinking about the fall holidays and Christmas gift projects we have to  get stuck into over the coming months.

Christmas card with Black Velvet Poinsettia panel

I love how this one turned out …   this is another one of my CraftsUPrint cut files  from a recent purchase.

I used the single panel for this design and cut it from SEI Black Velvet Paper. I adhered it to a sheet of Canson Mix Media and colored the panel with Zig Clean Color markers I trimmed it to size and inked the edges. I made a 5.5×8.5 card base with 110lb card stock with a black boho cut layer and a red and white polka dot layer and popped the image topper on that. I added a corner die cut by My Little Paper World.

What I love about this design is that the negative left after the main cut on my Cricut Explore is equally stunning and would be perfect for another project, or to make a matching envelope. I hate wasting paper.. but specially this Velvet lol..so it’s fabulous for this type of project..
Supplies:

BARGAIN ALERT
Currently the 12×12 Velvet paper is available online at Michaels for $1 per sheet instead of $1.99.

Bloobel Stamps February Progressive Challenge Project

I had some ideas for this one that were  not too “PC” so I  played it safe and added a simple stamped sentiment by Unity stamps.  What I really wanted to do was make a joke about the President pardoning turkeys….or  some crack about  accidentally mixing up the caterer and entertainment orders for a bachelor party and the caterer providing a “Bird with big breasts”   I will leave that with you.. and your imagination can fill in the blanks lol.  I’m just keeping in Simple … for this one  LOL

Here she is, this is  Bake Me A Cake  with Quirky Christmas Robin and the sentiment is from the Unity Stamp Co.  “A Joyous Season” stamp kit. The image is printed on Canson Mix Media and colored with Zig Kurecolor pens and a touch of Ranger Distress Pen & Crayola Color Escapes Pencils.

The image was  cut with a Lil’Inkers Stitched die from the rectangular dual stitch set on my Sizzix Big Shot and mounted on a Recollections card from Michaels using a Zig Photo Tape runner


She is the February Progressive Image over at the Bloobel.com Blog.  Be sure to sign up and join in, the new March Progressive is coming up.

Unplanned Michaels haul.. WHAT A DEAL !

We went out for dinner and I decided to swing by Michaels just to grab a  frame and check out clearance..and OMG I am so glad I did.  I almost changed my mind.

I just had one of the best hauls ever…..

For the first time Michaels have started doing Grab Bags at the local store.. at least it’s the first time I have ever seen it.  I have seen small ones at Joann before, mostly stickers and embellishments.. but I am talking SWAG BAG grab bags .. lol.. these are their large bags.

I wasn’t going to grab one because I had the lil guy with me and  people had pretty much ripped them all open to see what was inside..and it would have been hard to grab one without dropping everything and keeping an eye on lil man. But while I was at the register I went ahead and grabbed one since they were right next to it and the cashier was someone I know well enough ( yes I shop there too often LOL ) to trust him to keep an eye on my kid for 2 seconds !

Now I confess I picked up this particular one because I saw something it it I had wanted to try..and that alone was  worth the price of the grab bag LOL.  Mambi paper, I had seen it on Christmas clearance but wasn’t ready to grab something I hadn’t used before and wasn’t sure of, when I had plenty of other things to spend on.  But this bag was ripped open and it had 4 packs of it on show.. so heh… what am I ..a saint?? that was at least $40 worth of paper.

so here is my $4 grab bag from Michaels..

4 packs of 9×13 (24 sheet) Mambi Paper
22… yes 22 pocket/purse calendars for 2017 which will be great for Abandoned Art  projects with some quick fun decoration.
27…TWENTY SEVEN canisters of Scentsicles… lol not sure what to do with all those.. but heh.. I am sure I will think of something.  the containers might be useful for decorating  if nothing else.
A pair of knitting needles
2 black pom poms which I forgot to add to the picture.
a pack of rhinestone letters and a metal sentiment
2 silver block letters ..about 4-5 inches high

so at least $100 worth of goodies at original prices.. for  FOUR DOLLARS !!!

Then… we move on to bag #2 this was the stuff I actually picked up myself..

12×12 undecorated wood frame
2 packs of Chipboard albums ( big and small album in each pack )
clearance wood stamp
clearance cling stamps X8….8 Hampton Arts cling stamp sets
4  undecorated frames for the lil man.

Would you believe both bags… cost me just under $33 and contained at least $200 worth of goodies at original pricing. Between the grab bag, the clearance pricing and the coupons… THIRTY THREE DOLLARS !!!

I have to say I am thrilled to see Michaels doing the grab bags instead of dumping all the left over Christmas stuff that didn’t clear. Not just because it is such a fab deal for people like us who do multi crafts and who do abandoned art and kids art… but because I HATE WASTE.  So good on Michaels for trying to find a better way to dispose of their unsold holiday stuff!!! and give customers a great deal… some of us really appreciate it. ME ME ME ME ME ME ME

Anywho.. one very happy camper… just a shame that hubby works a double tomorrow.  I think if he was single shift, I’d go back for another grab bag. I am not sure if this is a storewide thing, I know it is being done in another store near by… but I would definitely check and see if your local store is doing them if you are running by one.

If you swing by and find a grab bag, be sure to share your haul ..I would love to know what everyone else got 🙂

CraftsUPrint Cricut SVG cut file Catch up!

I had a bunch of new files before Christmas that I didn’t get to  make up….so I decided to play catch up and zipped through a few of them tonight. One of them was already cut, another was already made up..I just didn’t get a chance to photograph it.  The other two I had made up, but messed up … so these were remakes and I actually like these versions better anyway LOL.

Now bear in mind I get SVG’s because I have a Cricut Explore, but most of these designers design in multiple formats for various cutting machines.  So when I refer to design space or Cricut,  that doesn’t mean you can’t use these cut files too…check and see.

Also… just an FYI, these files are not always as standard.  I  import them into Design Space and tweak them a little to suit my own needs. Changing cut areas to write, duplicating layers and using the contour tool to remove the cut outs etc to create a solid background on layers…  moving score lines to give a 3/4 fold etc.  So please bear in mind most of these files come with a center fold and are  set up for cutting, not writing.  If you are new to the Cricut, you may not know how  to modify things like that yet… never fear..it’s not rocket science.



Ok first one  was a remake… I originally started with a watercolored background in the cutouts, looked great but I bombed it when I stuck in on the inside… so take 2.. has a vellum insert and some cute pink ribbon detailing.  I scalloped the card on my paper cutter for a softer edge.

This cut file is: floral card 2 by Clive Couter, I have a few of his designs and really enjoy using these.

Next is a  simple little hello card. I had pre-cut this on green glitter card with the intention of using a Christmas design, but Christmas is long gone… so I just switched out that idea and  used a stamp from one of the new Layering sets by Hampton Arts.  I die cut the circle with a die from some Steampunk gears I picked up on Ebay.  It is stamped with Stazon and colored with Zig Clean Color… and a simple little “Hello” die sentiment, again an Ebay buy.

 

This cut file is from: over-the-fold-cards-1 by Lyn Simms

The next one was  done on black card using  a Zig chalk pen and pencils and I added an oversized die cut sentiment. I also flipped it on it’s side.  You will need a Chomas Adapter to use the Zig pens to write and draw on your Cricut Explore.

 

This cut file is: floral-over-the-edge-5
by apetroae-stefan

This one I duplicated the layer, welded  the holly leaves and  then  moved the score line to create a half fold hard.  I would probably have added in some red cabochons for the holly berries… but to be honest.. I have no idea where I stuck them lol.
