The New Cricut Maker Machine… Easy Press and more!

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.

“Blessed is he who comes ….

In the name of the Lord”

It’s new release time at Cute As A Button again…. and  this month my DT project is a super simple card for the boys. I colored this one up with my Chameleon markers and die cut it with  one of my new Gina Marie Designs dies, ” Loopy Rectangles” …and then attached it to one of the colored A2 size cards that I have from my  value packs form Michaels.  I love these cards, they come in so many great colors and designs and if you catch the sales you can pick them up at $5 a pack… great deal for 80 cards and envelopes.

“Poppy Fairy” Matted art in Pencil

This one was a  lot of work, but I love how she turned out.  She was printed on a 9×12 piece of Canson Mixed Media Paper and colored with Crayola Color Escapes, the  new “Grown up Crayolas” as I like to call them.   She is part of the New Release collection for March over at Cute As A Button this month.  I added a black photo mat to this and will frame it  and gift it to someone.

Go check out all the fun new images and don’t forget to pop on over and check out the Inspiration Blog & Facebook Group for new challenges 🙂

Anyone for Crochet?… crafter humor framed artwork

Once again my  project was directed by the image and sense of humor…  I love it when an image speaks to my inner clown and they get along perfectly  LOL.  Sometimes an image just clicks in your brain and other times you have to sit and stare at it and wait for the ideas to come… This will be a fun one to add to my abandoned Art bucket … maybe.

This is one of the new Releases from Cute As A Button .. this is “Harley”
She is colored with Zig Kurecolor, Chameleon  Pens and a touch of Marvy Detailer, Ranger Distress Pens  and Zig Memory System writer pens.

The edges were inked up using crafts smart ink pads and then she was mounted on  some striped paper “Recollections – Red Denim” from Michaels using Zig Photo Tape.  I just mounted her in an old frame I had laying around.

For anyone struggling to read..it says

“They said I was Anti-Social”

“So I answered an ad on Craigslist, It said ‘WANTED, ladies with killer crochet skills”

It’s a crafters joke and a play on words…  croquet/crochet  for those that ‘don’t get it’caab_nr_halequin_wmd
You can find her in the Cute As A Button store, along with the other New Releases for September.
