We bought our “Forever Home” in Oct of 2017 on a golf course in Elizabethtown, KY. My creative place is just now taking shape as I’m unpacking boxes still. It’s been a long journey to get here and will take several more months ahead to unpack and organize my craft space. I will also be listing items for sale as I unpack my studio. If you want to see what I’m selling please follow The Vintage Mint on Facebook, I will be listing items on the page as I go through boxes.
I’m excited to get everything in it’s spot so I can create! I do a little of everything, that’s why I just say the Jack of all trades. I think knitting is the only craft I haven’t tried yet.
Below is the links to find me on Social Media, join in the fun and the fails. <– because there will be fails. So lets laugh together and create together.
Have Fun and don’t forget to Follow me!
Find me on Social Media:
- Cricut Machine
- Cricut weeding tools & scraper
- brown vinyl
- mod podge matte
- foam sponge or paint brush
- downloaded and installed the font “i love glitter” from http://www.Dafont.com
- Painters tape or Transfer Tape (NOT THE CRICUT STRONG GRIP)
- Wooden Board with Cactus on it from Michaels Crafts (don’t forget to use your coupon when you buy it)
You want to put a light coat of mod podge matte finish on your board. Let dry for 30 minutes maybe more depending on where you live. (You will see in the 5th step why I say add a coat of Mod Podge FIRST. I didn’t and it pealed some of the paint off the picture between the S and the T in the word stuck.)
Create your design in Cricut Design space. I used the font from cricut “Country Life” and a free font from http://www.dafont.com called “i love glitter”.
If you really want to see how it’s going to look snap a phone and upload it into cricut as a IMAGE then select image type as COMPLEX. Then just click continue now click on the PRINT setting one and NOT the cut one. Then click SAVE and insert image. Then just play around with different fonts to see what you like best and pick one.
Time to cut! Set your machine to vinyl setting. Measure and make sure you have everything positioned correctly and grouped. If you do NOT group it will will not cut out correctly. Then apply your transfer tape or painters tape. Apply that to your board. Measure and CENTER!
This is a different project but it shows you my set up.
After all your vinyl is down, add your Mod Podge- remember a light coat will do it.
Your Done! Just let it dry and show your beautiful work below in the comments!
Michaels had more wooden and glass objects, so you don’t have to do the Cactus board. Just browse the isle and take time to look at items. Here are some other items I saw that you could work with…
PS.. My favorite might be the bunny butt…. LOL
