His and Hers Valentines Mugs

Something I really wanted to do this year; was make some His and Hers Valentines mugs using my Cricut, and some vinyl. This was quite easy to achieve, and I already had the perfect font on my laptop.

Feel the Love

I’ve said before that we don’t really take Valentine’s Day very seriously as a couple; earlier this week; Stu picked me up a new toothbrush and joked he was tempted to give it to me on Sunday… But as it’s so cold at the moment I came up with the perfect gift; (which clearly is going to be seen a bit early!).

12 Days Of Christmas 2019 – Movie Inspired Christmas Cushion

I planned this a little while ago… Well, when I say I planned this project, I knew I wanted to make a Christmas cushion. It was choosing the design that took a little more time!

Christmas 10

Way back when I planned the Halloween Cat Cushion, I also planned this project! (How’s that for organised?!) So when I picked up the plain black cotton cushion cover in Ikea, I also picked up a red one!

12 Days of Christmas 2019 – 6 – Christmas Window Vinyls With My Cricut Maker

It’s quite nice at Christmas in our area, almost all of the houses put up lights, and it’s something quite special to come home to after work at this time of year.

Because of where our house is, it’s one of those that everyone walks past, so I like to put some sort of window vinyls or stickers up every year.

This year, I thought I’d use my Cricut Maker to see if I could create my own!

Halloween Crafting – Black Cat Cushion

It is rare for me to do Halloween crafting, at least in any great amount. As much as I love Autumn; I just don’t see much that takes my fancy, though perhaps next year, it will make a change? I say this after I made this fun Halloween black cat cushion cover!

Blogtober - The Craft Room and Beyond

So while I will probably never do a FULL blogtober; as October isn’t really a time I’ve felt much need to blog a great deal about; I hope you enjoy this small crafty project!

Want to work with iron-on vinyl, making your own t-shirts, home accessories and more? You should try the Cricut EasyPress 2.

This is a sponsored conversation; written by me on behalf of Cricut. The following opinions and text are all my own.

Getting to know the Cricut EasyPress 2

I will be completely honest, I have never given much thought to iron-on projects. This isn’t to say I’ve never had the idea; I was under the impression; that Iron-on projects are too complex. As well as something at risk of being a bit of a fad, that I’d pay out for; before becoming bored with it; not using it or getting distracted with something else. 

This being the case, I haven’t really been aware of products to do this at home, though of course I know you can do certain projects at home with an iron. I don’t know the first thing about materials or methods…
