Quick Idea to Dress Up Applesauce for Valentine Treat
I had signed up for the healthy treat in my grandsons class. As a last minute dress up, I decided to make a heart to put on top of the applesauce that could hold the spoon. Here is what I ended up with. Each 12x12 sheet will yield 16 hearts. I taped them on in three spots and slipped the spoon handle thru the slit. Easy peasy! This is just the tip of the iceberg of what you can do with an eclips or other electonic cutter that lets you use Sure Cuts A Lot software!

I'm really having fun spending evenings in my craft studio and thinking about what project to do next! Last night I made the birdcage from Playful Parlour by SVG Cuts I used AC Carstock for the entire project. The pieces cut out beautifully on my Sizzix eclips2. I think this will be something I actually keep on a shelf in my livingroom. My next project will have to be Easter related. I want to make a hostess gift for a egg hunt party that a family member is having. I will also have a post on Easter Sunday, but it will actually be a project I make today or tomorrw. I'm hosting Easter dinner and doubt that crafting will be something I can do til very late on Sunday. I'm just 3 page likes away from reaching 200 on Facebook ! I'll be having a spring theme give away when that magic number is achieved!
Well, today's project didn't turn out exactly as I had planned. I'm a visual person. So I don't alway get the end result I want, until I see what I have done wrong. The baseball cap from Fun and Games by SVG Cuts, was going to be fashioned after the WSU Shocker mens baseball caps. Gold on the front and black on the back and bill. For some reason, I could only see (in my mind) that two front panels needed to be gold. Nope, needed to be three. Oops. I went ahead and cut a third gold panel and glued it on over the back. I can't give this one away. I'll have to keep it as a reminder that I need to cut three different panels. It doesn't look terrible. But it's not right. I didn't measure the area for the logo very well either. This one is a little too big! So, today's crafting was a learning experience! I used AC Cardstock for this entire project. I also did an internet search for the team logo and did a trace into ecal2. I d
Can you believe it? It's already May! Are you scrambling for a last minute teacher appreciation gift? I got the Oracal 651 out and sat down with ecal 2 and made this design for some of the teachers in our life. I admit, I had some trouble and had to remove, re-cut and then reapply my design on a couple of these, but FINALLY I got the look I was shooting for. I finished them with some paper and foil shred. If you make some using the Dollar Tree tumblers, be sure to include a note to handwash only. Have fun creating!
