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.
