♫Still Dancing on the Ceiling All Night Long♫

Last weekend I went to the Lionel Richie concert with my sis and some friends. I didn't love the concert t-shirts, so I made my own. Check out my blog post from a few weeks ago... I helped my nieces make t-shirts for a trip and we made freezer paper stencils. I used the same technique for my concert t-shirt.

Multiple Cricut font cartridges and used the Gypsy to format. Freezer paper cut with the Cricut.

Ain't we cute?

Baby Shower Cards

Well, not the best photos in the world, but they are the only ones I took...with my Iphone. Two of the girls in my office are having "bebes"! We are giving them a shower at work and I made the cards. I used ideas from the bedding they each picked out... 
Club Scrap cardstock, B is for Boy, Animal Antics, and Everyday Paper Dolls Cricut cartridges.

Freezer Paper Stenciled T-shirts

OK, where was this idea when I was growing up?! My nieces came over to play in my craft room and made freezer paper stenciled t-shirts. +Joy Tracey made a great tutorial for this technique. I had the girls watch it before we got started...

I didn’t have my Silhouette Cameo hooked up yet, so I helped them design their stencils with the Gypsy and we cut them out with the Cricut. The process was actually pretty fast. Once they chose their designs (this took the longest) and plugged everything into the Gypsy, the rest was a piece of cake! I steered them to choose simple designs for our first time. We’ll tackle a little more complicated design the next go ‘round.

Ellie wanted to paint an anchor on hers…

Ava had her phrase all picked out, we just had to find the right fonts AND her dolphin!

I have to say, they came out pretty good for a first try. I was skeptical that the freezer paper would leak, but I ironed it really well for good measure and it was stuck. They want to come back and make another after we go paint color shopping!
