Use Cricut Design Space 3 to Make a beautiful Glue Gun holder!!

Thank you for joining me!
There are several tutorials available to make your own version of this project. They are all beautiful, and I decided it was time to give it a go! This is just my version, but you know I had to use my Cricut Explore Air and make it pretty!! First, gather your supplies. This means a haul trip to the $$ store, where you will find a glass piece for the bottom and a candle holder. Go for something heavy, as this is meant to hold your glue gun and keep it from sliding off your table. The size of the opening should allow your glue gun to rest comfortably. I was fortunate to find one that had an opening large enough for my glue gun, and has a favorite Bible verse from the book of Joshua!!  I used the Gold glitter vinyl & my weeding tool (retro Cricut user here!)


Once I weeded the vinyl, I noticed the bottom is actually silver, and just as beautiful as the top!
This vinyl came with the Strong Transfer tape ** I do not prefer this tape**, you may use the regular …

World's Best Dad - Monocle Steampunk Card

Thank you for joining me!
Father's Day is soon approaching, and I was inspired to make a Steampunk style card with a wonderful gear background image from Cricut's Design Space. This card was fun to make, and I hope that you also enjoy it!


This card features an elegant image of a man in a tall hat, wearing a bow tie, and monocle.  The colors are masculine, with a black background full of gears. This adds to the Steampunk style of the card.

The white background is also embossed with several mustache images. His monocle is made of vinyl, a long-lasting sturdy material.
To finish the 6' square card, The title reads World's Best Dad, on movie tickets across the front. You may gift this to dad with a set of movie tickets to complete the theme! This card is made with high quality card stock, and the inside is blank to add your personal message. It also includes customized black matching envelope.

Using your Vinyl Scraps, and Stamps!

Thank you for joining me!
Today I am showing you a short tutorial on what to do with leftover scraps of printable or indoor vinyl.
You may have pieces of this left over, and are wondering what to do with it. This is just one of many ideas!


I decided to try stamping it, and create custom washi tape with a Santoro London Gorguss girl stamp. I used a Bic marker to color the background first, and stamped the image with Versafine Onyx Black ink.

This ink is water resistant, and will allow my image to be permanent once dry!
To make the polka-dots stand out, I used a black sharpie to color them in.
It matches another roll of Washi from my stash!


All that was left to do was to cut it out, and my Tonic Studios Tim Holtz scissors make this a breeze!
I applied it to the border of my PC monitor, where I will be adding all of my favorite washi tapes!
I hope you try this, and use those leftover scraps of vinyl! This type of vinyl can be applied indoors, or to your favorite projects. I also used the…

Extreme 16

Happy Creative Friday!

I think you can say I'm tearin' it up! ( Pun intended!)
This card was made as a special request, and I was happy to oblige. As it is titled, it is for an Extreme 16, and I was happy to be able to easily design and make the entire thing with my Cricut Explore Air 2!

I used Ranger Distress ink in Vintage Photo, a WeRMemory Keepers embossing folder from the Geo collection, and metal numbers from my stash. The distressing in white that left "Treads" all over the outside of my card were made using a tread cutout as a stencil and white gesso. I also drew the small details of the tread on the exterior with a black sharpie for contrast.
I was also able to make the inside banner with my Cricut'sWrite and Cut feature. I love how easy it is to attach words to images and let the machine do the writing! 



The papers made this card very easy to put together they are from the Fancy Free collection by Pink Paiselee, as well as Kraft cardstock and black paper…

Be Brave Mixed Media Easel Card with The Runaway Gorguss Girl Stamp.

Thank you for joining me!
Take a look at this beautiful easel card I made with the Gorguss Girl Stamp The Runaway!
This stamp set is absolutely beautiful, and I wanted the image to look whimsical and fun.
I used Several supplies to achieve the end result, and I am quite happy with the soft and sweet colors that emerged from playing around with my Sennelier Watercolors, Prismacolor Pencils, and Ranger Distress inks. I used a mixture of all, and I love being surprised by how the inks and paints will blend and make their own story.






I hope that you enjoy this and are inspired to use your stamps and supplies!! Be encouraged, be blessed, and be brave!!- Raquel
