Flocking Fun!! Step by Step Tutorial

I found some flocking powder on Clearance at Michaels a couple of weeks ago, and for .49 cents for the four (4) I couldn't pass it up. I didn't know how to use it, or really even what it was for! Thank goodness for Blogs! I looked up some projects and how it is used, and voila! now I'm a pro and you can be too! This stuff is GREAT!! It adds a velvet texture to your paper!

I decided to use my Pooh and friends Cricut Cartridge. I cut him out with all layers at 4 1/4 inches. Isn't he just darling already!

Here are my tools! Modge Podge Glue, my cricut spatula, a paint brush, all of my layers, a tray with a funnel at the bottom (This tool is fantastic No more using paper and trying to funnel it back into the tub) and redflocking powder.

I decided to flock Pooh bears shirt in the Red Powder. I painted on the modge podge glue and covered it in the flocking powder.

Tap the excess back into your funnel tray and dump it back into your flocking container!

Here is his Flocked shirt!! :)

Glue on all of the layers. I usually use Zip dry glue, but it is a very small bottle, and somewhat expensive, so I tried using the modge podge and painting oon the layers - Some scrappers use an adhesive tape - Like white out - but i am concerned about longetivity, but have not tried it yet~! So many scrappers do it this way, so I am sure that it is just fine!

And here he is!! I have no idea what I will do this guy, but I had to use my flocking!! The orange in the pack will be great for tigger in this cartridge on his fur!!


Princess Party Invitations with Once upon a Princess Cartridge

I used the Once upon a Princess Cartridge - These Princesses were cut at 3 inches. I later went back and put some bling in the center of their dresses. I inked the edges of there dresses and layers. On these princesses, they cut out TINY little shoes. I've found it is easier to ink the bottom layer rather than to try to glue on their tiny little shoes!

I need to order some of those face stamps Peechy Keen stamps! They really have some cute ones that I would like to try on these girls. 

This is the Princess Party Card on the Once upon a princess Cartridge - Cut on 8.5 by 11 sheets of paper. It was cut at 4 1/2 inches so that I could fit two on the size sheets that I had.

I inked around the crowns to make them stand out more, and I layered a sheet cut to size of lime green paper on the back of the phrase cut out. 
I don't know why, but I just LOVE lime green, pink and black together!

I used the lime green again and cut a sheet to size for the front and placement of my princess. I ran the green stock through the Polka Dot Cuttlebug Embossing folder.

Now on to the gift bags to go with these invites!! On the inside, I will print the invitation announcements on vellum paper and slip inside. I am doing coordinating bookmarks of the princesses to be placed in the kiddos goody bags.


Happy Hauntings Cricut Cartridge

I just wanted to show you just one of the fantastic things this cartridge can cut!! I can NOT wait to do goodie bags with this cartridge!!

This is a photo frame cut out of foam at 5 1/4 inches. I bought the foam stock at walmart - 40 sheets for less than 5 bucks!


Thank You card with Cricut

So I made Grandma Cleo a thank you card using some of her buttons for not admitting me to the looney bin. I'm not a big fan of padded walls anyway.

Thanks for stopping in today!

Simple Father's Day Card Made with Cricut

I made this using my Playtime Lite cartridge. I just love the frame I can get. 

This was such an easy card and it came out so cute! I used my Cuttlebug with the Swirls and polka dot embossing folder.

Playtime lite cartridge for Frame, and layer. I cut another layer at 1/4 inch smaller.

Father's Day Card

Glue some ribbon on the side, stamp your top layer, ink some edges - Oh and I almost forgot, I inked the swirls on the blue embossed paper with a metallic Bronze (LOVE IT) and the polka dot embossed paper with a yellow for a small pop of color


Tri-Fold Shutter Card

 TRI-FOLD Shutter Card and New Additions Cricut Cartridge

This is my entry for the MyPinkStamper Color challenge! The challenge was to use the colors Orange, Green and Turquoise. I also wanted to make a Tri-Fold Shutter card, so I decided to do both!

I used a lot of scraps from my other projects. Each little area is so small, you can use itty bitty scraps!

I love the way it turned out and I hope that you do too! It was very time consuming! But very worth it, and will make a great keepsake for any New Addition to your family!

I added some flowers and a bookplate, and rubbed the edges of the panels in their coordinating colors with the Sponge Daubers

I used a lot of accents, chipboard (Cut Cereal boxes) 
and the New Additions Cricut Cartridge!
