About Me

My photo
Welcome to my Kraft Korner on the web! When not spending time with my awesome husband or working, I love to settle into my craft room & make cards, gifts and home projects. I am going to get caught up on my scrapbooks one of these days too but right now, I am too addicted to making ANYTHING with vinyl. Thanks for stopping by - come again!

Purse Tile

I got the idea for this type of layout from a Cricut Messageboard member. Hers was about shoes but I relate to purses MUCH more!!

Wall Vinyl - A Learning Experience

One of my first wall projects was in the laundry room with this design (before I even knew of transfer tape - WHEW!). I learned that the textured walls don't always like things to stick there. After 1/2 of the letters fell down, I put them back up by using waxed paper over the letter and my squeege to REALLY rub them on. No problems since.

Fixing Up the Place

My Brother-in-Law is moving back into a house that he was renting out and is doing a little fixing up of the place first. We had a little "New Home Shower" for him and his daughter and here is the card & gift card holder I made for him.

I LOVE the Handy Man cartridge!!

Me? Sassy?

Here is my first try with heat transfer vinyl - I love it!! It is pretty easy to work with. I did a canvas bag also.

Anniversary Candle Holders

Here are the anniversary themed candle holder's I made for my in-laws anniversary open house (with ALOT of help from my dear friend Wendy). We did 4 each of the 6 designs. They were filled with coordinating sand and the 'bigger than votive' candles from Hobby Lobby at the party. (Sorry for the poor picture quality, it was hard to get them all and show the designs with the glass)

I was "published"

I found out this glass block was shown in the Cricut Chirp, message board highlights! I feel very honored, as I feel I have intermediate skills with my Cricut, though it isn't a big deal - I am very excited!! Thanks to the board members that let me know and to my SIL Ruth who got this order for me by giving another block at a baby shower!!

Anniversary Wine Glasses

Here are some shatterproof acrylic wineglasses I made for my In-Laws 50th wedding anniversary this weekend.

Great Source for Cricut Cartridges

Today I made my second purchase from Smart Buy Gal for another cartridge. My first experience was great with fast shipping and VERY reasonable shipping charges. Today I ordered another cartridge and it has already been shipped!! Not only that, but the price dropped AFTER I ordered and paid, Kathy contacted me and told me she refunded the difference to my PayPal account. Now THAT's customer service.

So, if you are a Cricut fan in need of reasonably priced cartridges with $5 flat rate shipping and quick, service - give Kathy a try at Smart Buy Gal!!

NOTHING is safe from vinyl......

Here is a cooler I made for my SIL to give to our nephew for Christmas.
