Cricut Maker Engraved Acrylic LED Nightlights Bunny, Winnie the Pooh & Fox

Hello, my crafty friends!
It still feels like summer here in Apple Valley. It's been in the 100's all 
summer and continues. My fruit trees are dropping fruit like crazy, because of
 the hot weather. I picked the last of my figs today and will miss picking them
 each morning for breakfast. So yummy!
On with the show.....
Ready to see my amazing  Engraving projects? 

I'm so excited about the New Cricut Maker tools, they are amazing!
This little bunny was my first test using the Engraving tool.
And, I must say, I was really impressed with the results. I used
the small LED light that I had in my Luminary creations.  I
couldn't wait to see what it looked like all lit up. This is just temporary
 until I get the LED holder.  I have the link below for the LED light holders 
that I will be ordering. The acrylic sits in a 4-inch slit and has a remote so
you can turn it off and on.  Yes, it's definitely going to be a WOW! 

My Cricut Maker is amazing! It only took a min or two to engrave this
darling bunny and it looked so professional. Just think, we can make personalized
 gifts for all our loved ones and even us. Cricut has been making crafting 
so fun and exciting with all their new tools.
I love my Cricut Maker! It's the top of the line when it 
comes to cutting machines in my opinion and I've had many
over the years. The Maker is stronger and more dependable and 
now Cricut has an offline app for PC that is amazing. Cricut
keeps making it better and better for us crafters. It's a very user-friendly
 machine and with Cricut Access you have every design at your fingertips.
 Can you tell I love my Cricut Maker? lol

The beautiful colors change and keep you mesmerized. So many
adorable designs that you can create. I'm thinking I would like to
make one with a 4" circle or even a cutout design. I'll be playing
around with this for sure. So easy to make and really fun.

My second test was this darling Fox around a flower wreath and font. Isn't he
so awesome! All designs are in Cricut Access and are Free to use. You can
engrave almost any design you like and even add someone's name or special date.
So much fun to make for Birthdays, Baby showers and Holidays.

I love the changing colors. Super fun and easy to make for someone special
on your list. A keepsake for sure!

This was the last night light that I made for my granddaughter. I know she will
 enjoy it just as much as I did making it for her. I can't wait to see her face
light up when she sees this. Definitely a cutie!

So adorable in red and really in all the beautiful colors.
I can't wait to make more for the upcoming Holidays. 

To make the Acrylic Night lights I've included a material list below.

This is the acrylic I used from Lowes and they cut it in 4's for me.
Since the opening on the LED box is 4" long I may have them cut it
4 x 6 next time and also I ordered a 4" round.

Christmas Cricut Holiday Recipe Gift Box and #Cricut Sticky Posted Note Covers #Design Space

Hello again my crafty friends.
Even though it's still in the 100's here in Apple Valley, it's time to
think about getting all the Holiday gifts and projects started. I'm so
ready for the cooler weather to get here . :) 
I do a lot of baking during the Holiday season and saw this adorable
recipe box in Cricut Design Space and had to make one. Well, as you
will see, I'm on a roll!! lol I thought it would be nice to give these
to everyone in my family, including friends with all my recipes inside. So,
if I'm going to finish up before Christmas I better get going. haha

My first recipe box I used Graphic 45 papers from the Enchanted Forest
collection. I love love their papers and it cuts like butter with my
Cricut Maker. This particular paper collection is out of stock now, but 
here's some that would be just as gorgeous. 
See links below

This is a two piece recipe box and easy to assemble.
 The pen tool was used for the writing on top and the
Wavy blade cut it out with a lovely wavy look.

so awesome, it just knows to cut wavy on any straight line if you direct it
to do just that. I love the Wavy blade and it can be used for many projects
as you will see below.

This is an Access Free Tassel project in Design Space. They call for
crepe paper, but I didn't have any on hand, so I used cardstock and it turned
out great. The New Cricut Wavy blade is amazing! It cuts all those
curvy lines like a champ and very quickly. The Cricut Wavy blade is
designed to only be used in the Cricut Maker.

Cricut Infusible Ink Pens Flower Ink Sheets Ceramic Coasters & Big Shot Test

Well, hello my crafty friends! My, how time gets away from you, when your
having so much fun crafting. I've been involved in a special Cricut
testing group for the last month, showcasing their New Infusible ink Products. 
Cricut sent me a Trendsetter kit to test. See pic below.
What an honor that's been and so fun.
One XL white Shirt
One 14 x 14 beige Tote Bag
One set/4 Ceramic Coaster Blanks 
One Blue Heat Resistant Tape
One set of Infusible Basic Ink Pens
One Box Wildflower Infusible sheets/4
One Box Infusible Cherry Red Sheets/2
One Mini Lint Roller
White 12 x 12 cardstock
Sheet Butchers paper

I was so happy to begin this amazing adventure using these special
products. And as you will see, they are truly amazing! First, I just wanted
to try it out on the small squares that were included in the ink sheets. I 
was curious if I could use it in my Big Shot, manual cutting machine and 
so I tested it first before I was brave enough to do my coasters. lol Am I
the only one that feels like that?? I just wanted to make sure I did it
right without mistakes. haha Well, we do learn from our mistakes they say. :) 
This is my Big Shot, but other manual machines should work as well.
 This was my first test using my Big Shot. I'm sure
you could use the Cuttlebug or any other one also. I cut some
small pieces from the Cherry Red and Yellow flowered Ink
sheets. Next, I found some heart and bunny dies and rolled 
them through the Big Shot. The top picture show them cut
out and the second picture is after  I pressed them.

I used the EasyPress2  set at 385F for 40 sec. I love how
 vivid the colors turned out. The birds and butterflies are 
also a die run through the Big Shot machine. So for this test
you can absolutely use your Cuttlebug or Big Shot machine with
the ink transfer sheets with success. 
Amazing products!!

Amazing Ceramic Coaster!
Okay, now for my Ceramic Coasters! The box I made for
these coasters are from Carole Prevost on Facebook. If you
join her group, you will have access to all her file in Design Space.

I found the perfect cling stamp and inked it in black. I stamped
all sides, top and bottom of the box. I think it came out great and matches
my coasters. Great to give as gifts with a pretty ribbon on the top.

Are these gorgeous or what!!! 
They are so shiny and professional 
looking, I can't believe I made them and it was so easy. They look like
they came from Macy's Department store. lol
I'm thinking I would love to make the large tiles like you see
in kitchens and bathrooms.Tile backsplash! Wouldn't that be so cool! 
Your own design or drawing that you made. So many possibilities!

This is a close up. My Cricut Maker did it all! You can use the pens to
Free hand draw or paint also. Yes, how fun would it be to have your kids
draw something special on the Laser paper. What a cherished keepsake
that would be. Cricut has opened up a whole new way of crafting
and it's so fun and easy.

The Cricut#Infusibleink pens are Magical and as simple as 1-2-3!

1. Place laser paper on your mat, find your design in DS and insert the infusible ink pen.

2. Push MAKE and the Maker will begin to draw and cut your design out.

          3.  Place your Design Face Down on your coaster and use the special heat tape to secure it.        Place White Cardstock on your Easy Press mat. Place your coaster, Design Side Down and then Butcher paper. Press at 400 for 240 seconds. Wait until it cools before touching.

That's it!!!!
You just made a professional looking coaster for a special gift or to keep for yourself. It's so magical and Cricut made it possible with these fantastic pens and markers. 
Let the Fun begin! 

This is the whole set! What do you think? Wouldn't these be
a perfect Holiday gift for anyone on your list. They are  so shiny
and look so professional, that I can't believe I made them. Yes,
this is truly going to be on my Holiday list. And, when my 
daughter see's these in person, I know she will want me to make
them for all her (150) clients and personnel. OMG! What have I
gotten myself into. lol Good thing it's easy haha Oh I think I'll
have her join in the fun! ;) 

That's it my friends for another day in my crafty room. I
hope that I've inspired you to give these exciting new pens and
ink sheets a try. And if you need any help, I'm Misty Morgan
on Facebook. Just shoot me a message and I'll be there to help
you however I can. 
Most of all, have Fun and a Rainbow week.
