1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Paper Succulents on: August 12, 2019 07:51:56 PM
I've been having too much fun making paper succulents and flowers with my Cricut.  Here's some I did over the weekend.

This paper is shimmery and has metallic colored pencil accents.  For size reference this is a 4" embroidery hoop.

My coworker loved this and bought it from me.  It's in a 4x6 frame.

These are seriously fun to make.  Thanks for looking!
2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Felt Succulents on: August 10, 2019 01:12:18 PM
I got a Cricut last week and I love the darned thing.  Also you can cut felt with it!  My dad had to have emergency gall bladder surgery yesterday (but he's doing fine) and I wanted to make him something.  So I thought I'd try these succulents I saw on Pinterest.  I found a nice plant pot at Hobby Lobby and glued in some river rocks to make it look fancy.

3  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Paper Flowers and More Cricut Crafts on: August 06, 2019 08:05:50 PM
I bought a Cricut because my husband said that's how all those people on the internet make their car decals and I was like "I want to make decals."  I thought the Cricut was still some lame die-cut thing like it was when it first came out and I didn't even think I wanted one.  I got it home and proceeded to make a card using the welcome tutorial.  Then I made some cut-outs for some ATCs.  Then I made some decals and even some iron-on things for my plain t-shirts.  But I had no idea that it could do pop-up cards and 3D paper flowers until I started poking around on Cricut Access and Pinterest.

Anyway, I'm sure you don't want to be bored with my life story and would like to see some pictures now.

I made this tonight- I think it turned out pretty rad.  The flower is 3D.

I also made these paper succulents.  I don't have a lot of scrapbook paper or cardstock right now so I just grabbed something green.

A sweet Kraken card that my co-worker is totally getting. I also made the nautical compass envelope you can kind of see.

And some roses.

So overall I'd say the Cricut is a good purchase and something I'll use a lot.  Thanks for looking!

6  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / One Little Bite Diamond Painting on: March 12, 2019 06:27:19 PM
Ok I forgot to measure this and Im too lazy to go do it, but its pretty big. Like poster sized I guess. This is the first painting Ive done with square drills (diamonds). It took me 4 or 5 weeks. You can sort of see the sparkles in these pictures. I got the kit from Diamond Art Club. I like them because they are US based and their kits are good quality.

Thanks for looking!
7  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / More Diamond Art- Elephant and Rainy Day on: February 15, 2019 05:22:33 AM
So diamond art is pretty addicting and I've made 2 more.  My favorite is the elephant.  He's about 8"x8".


My husband picked out this design.  I can't remember the measurements, but its around poster size.

Thanks for looking!
8  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Cat Diamond Painting on: February 03, 2019 02:31:20 PM
I kept seeing diamond painting ads on Instagram and it looked like fun. A lot of kits are geared toward kids or older people, bu I finally found a neat one to try. This is a kit from Walmart, the brand is Dazz. It fits in a 16x20 frame.

9  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Diamond Painting Question on: January 29, 2019 08:29:43 PM
Yeah, I hopped on the latest craft fad. What can I say, I like sparkly things and keeping my hands busy.  My question is this: where can I find kits that arent, uh, geared towards an age-specific audience?  I tried Etsy but most of the shops selling kits are in Asia and I dont like to buy from international shops because the post office loses things.  There are kits everywhere, but a lot of them are cute fluffy kittens or flowers or Merica. Thats fine, but not my style. Anyone know of somewhere I can find some different designs?
10  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Pokemon/Dragon Beanies on: December 23, 2018 01:22:17 PM
I got an embroidery machine and learned that you can make stuffies in the hoop!  The Mew pattern is from SoapyBacon on Etsy, the Eevee pattern was free (https://pin.it/cq5uqezwk36j7w), and the Toothless pattern was from the Plush Parlor on Etsy, although I do not recommend doing this pattern unless you have a 5x7 hoop, because the 4x4 is lacking some files and instructions.  I made all of them beanies because I thought they were cuter being a little floppy.



I love the little feet.

And Toothless
