Cricut Access Arrow Thank You Card


Just got my new Cricut Maker and taking advantage of my 2 week free subscription to Cricut Access.  I don't know if I will subscribe because I have a pretty large cartridge library and I like to upload my own shapes as well.  Still, it's nice to have access to so many ready-made projects. I made these thank you cards using the Arrow Thank You Card design from Cricut Access.  It's easy to use the pre-made designs as templates and tweak them to add your liking.


Heres the original Cricut Access design

"Tea-Riffic" Birthday Teacup Stack Card


I made this A2 tea-themed birthday card using the Poppystamps "teacup stack" die cut.  The original die is only 2" x 3" but I cut, scanned and converted it to an SVG file so I was able to enlarge it and cut with my Cricut Explore.  The font is DJ Doodlers by Fontastic for Cricut and the paper is by Creative Memories.

Vinyl decal / sitcker set for kitchen cabinet - ICONS for DRYING DISHES and DRYING HANDS


I installed two matching 8" Restoration Hardware pulls in lieu of a towel rack.  The pulls work out better than a towel rack because they are much more streamlined and don't stick out as far.


I designed and added vinyl decal icons over each towel; one for drying dishes, the other for drying hands.  
These decals, as well as others are available at my etsy store:

dishtowel holders using 8 inch restoration hardware grafton pulls





Instead of installing a towel bar on the kitchen island, we purchased two coordinating Grafton 8" drawer pulls from Restoration Hardware.  The 8" pulls are wide enough to hang a dishtowel on each pull and they are a lot more shallow, so they do not stick out as far as a towel bar.

White Painted Laminate Stairs with Carpet Runner

We originally had laminate floors, which continued up the stairs.  After we re-floored downstairs, we decided to paint the laminate stairs white and add a runner.  We added a skirt along the wall and painted it white to match the stairs and railing.



We painted the walls, which really brightened up house (Valspar Pelican).  Here are the before pictures, which now seem so drab:

TEACHER APPRECIATION CARD: "A+ TEACHER" with Chalkboard + Apple + Pencil


This card was made with my Silhouette Cameo.  The file is from the Silhouette Studio called "teacher appreciation card".  I ended up using a different apple from the Studio as well because it had better shape.
