Silly Faces

Good Morning and Happy Friday to you!!! Cristina here to share with you a PL layout. I absolutely loved playing around with this set, the bad thing is I cant remember the name of the kit. I think it was either Teen Boy or Boy. Lets just say its definitely a fun kit by PL for a boy. The colors are fun and the sayings and pictures are so ideal for my little guy and what I wanted to create with them.
Silly Faces -  well as you can see for yourself my son and I where just having so much fun. My husband was working out of town and I we where just texting back and forth like normal when we got this bright idea we would send him some goofy pics.

I wanted to make this one very simple and make the pictures do all the talking or faces should I say.

I hope your enjoyed today's project too. If you have a questions or suggestions, please leave it in the comments. Also, you can join up to our Facebook group: Scrapbook Blessings Club for more fun, games, inspiration, tips and techniques. Thank you for stopping by and have a blessed day! SBC Design Team Member

Cutting Fabric with the Silhouette

0
Hello, Friends!  Today I'm planning on cutting fabric with my Silhouette Cameo.  I've been meaning to do something like this for 3 years!

Design on gown created using fusible fabric

Here's What You'll Need:
  • Fabric - I bought 1/4 of a yard of a pink cotton print for $1.21 (I have a LOT leftover)
  • Wonder Under or Heat 'N Bond - I bought a package of 2 yards for $2.99 (lots of this leftover as well)
  • Something to Put the Fusible Fabric On - I'm using a baby's gown
  • Cutting Machine or Scissors - I'm using a Silhouette Cameo
  • Iron
Baby gown, fabric and Wonder Under


Step 1:
Wash and dry the fabric.  Since I purchased cotton, I didn't want it to shrink after being applied.

Step 2:
Using scissors, I cut a rectangle of fabric and Wonder Under for my project.  In all, I cut less than    8" x 10". 

Fabric after Wonder Under ironed onto wrong side for 5 seconds
Step 3:
Iron the rough side of the Wonder Under to the wrong side of the fabric for 5 seconds with a hot, dry iron.  Set aside.

Step 4:
Decide what you're going to cut.  I decided on the name "LUCY" and a few little butterflies.  I cut my letters at a height of 2.5" each.  

Image of my mat before cutting.  I used a new needle and
used the recommended cut settings for fabric.
Step 5:
Place fabric side up on your mat and cut with a new needle.  Mine had been used on paper projects and was probably too dull to cut fabric.

Step 6:
Remove cut out images and letters.  Remove the paper backing from the fabric.  (This step worried me as it seemed it should stay with the fabric.  But, removing is the correct step.)

After cutting fabric with Silhouette Cameo.
Step 7:
Lay the cut out images onto your project (my baby's gown).  When satisfied, place a damp cloth over and iron for 15 seconds on the wool setting.  

All done!  Can't wait to see this on my granddaughter!


Step 8:
All done!  Admire and enjoy.  

This turned out to be pretty simple and I will definitely be cutting fabric with my Silhouette in the future.

I hope your enjoyed today's project too. If you have a questions or suggestions, please leave it in the comments. Also, you can join up to our Facebook group: Scrapbook Blessings Club for more fun, games, inspiration, tips and techniques. Thank you for stopping by and have a blessed day!

Another Friday Layout to share

1



The above two 12x12 layouts are ready to place photos in the empty spots, and than print and place in a scrapbook.  These two pages I worked on while in El Paso, Texas visiting and helping my son and family as my DT duties was put on hold while there. (No machines, cardstock etc to work with!!)

Now this digital 4x6 layout is completed, just needs to be printed.  But, in this case, I need to order more plastic cover sheets....


The embellishments from various scrapbook kits; and Snowman with Lights I believe from misskatecuttables; and 2014 I loaded the paper into Adobe Photoshop Elments and created a mask of the numbers to give it the newspaper look (thanks to the tutorials over at Pixel Scrapper Digital Scrapbooking).

I hope your enjoyed today's project too. If you have a questions or suggestions, please leave it in the comments. Also, you can join up to our Facebook group: Scrapbook Blessings Club for more fun, games, inspiration, tips and techniques. Thank you for stopping by and have a blessed day!

Tea Towel Tutorial

2
Hello, Friends!  Marilyn here with a tutorial on how to create tea towels from flour sacks.  Once you get the hang of this, you could use this idea to scan all kinds of designs to put on your flour sacks.

For example (think Mother's Day gifts here)

  • Children's Art Work
  • Old Family Recipes

Tea Towel created using flour sacks from Target.  

I created this tea towel for my kitchen using the following:

  • Flour Sack Towels: I purchased a set of 4 from Target for $3.99
  • Ink Transfer Paper:  Mine is a specialty paper from RPL Supplies.  But you can purchase transfer paper from an Office Supply store.
  • Printer:  I have a Ricoh 7100.  If you're using transfer paper from an office supply store, you can use your home printer.
  • Heat Press or Iron:  You'll need a hot iron to transfer the image from the paper to the towel.  Follow the instructions on your transfer paper.  If using a heat press, press for 20 seconds at 375 degrees.
  • Image:  You will need an image to put onto your towel.  I used an image from My Vinyl Designer.  But you could scan and use your child's art work.  Or maybe an old family recipe.  

Step 1:  Get Flour Sacks

Flour Sacks from Target.  Four for $3.99
I found Flour Sack Kitchen Towels at Target.  They came in a pack of four and cost $3.99.  They are located in the kitchen towel section.  Once opened up, they are have a thin gauze-y feel to them.

Step 2:  Print your image onto transfer paper.

Image from My Vinyl Designer - flipped horizontally for printing onto transfer paper.
I should point out here that the image needs to be flipped horizontally when printing onto transfer paper.

Step 3:  Iron image onto flour sack.

Peel transfer paper off while hot.  Otherwise, it's stuck to your towel.
I used a heat press to iron my image (375 degrees for 20 seconds).  Make sure you peel the transfer paper off as soon as done ironing.  Otherwise, it's stuck to your towel.  And watch out - it's hot!

I hope your enjoyed today's project too. If you have a questions or suggestions, please leave it in the comments. Also, you can join up to our Facebook group: Scrapbook Blessings Club for more fun, games, inspiration, tips and techniques. Thank you for stopping by and have a blessed day!
