I have been obsessed with buffalo check the past couple of years but what I have realized is that painting it freehand can be difficult. Today I am going to show you how I made a buffalo check stencil with my Cricut.
It may only be the beginning of the second week of September but I am in full swing for decorating for Fall. In my living room I am using traditional fall colors and making everything pop with orange buffalo check. I hand painted some buffalo check mason jars a few weeks ago. They came out great but I wanted to find a way to make a more accurate pattern. I knew that I had to make a stencil.
Fall wreaths are always one of my favorite things to make. I have been wanting to make an unconventional wreath for awhile now and I thought it would be fun to us an embroidery hoop or a quilters hoop. I was actually inspired by one of the heirloom challenges on the new show Making it with Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman. One of the contestants used embroidery hoops for an unconventional quilt.
I have to admit it I am counting down the days until it is Fall! I want to feel the cool autumn air, throw on a sweatshirt while apple picking and sipping pumpkin spice lattes. Well it is still 90 degrees here but I am going to crank the AC and pretend its Fall while I do some fall crafting. I love to make signs and work with pallets so today I thought I would make a wooden Fall sign and teach you guys how I make stencils for wooden signs and the paining technique I use so to get crisp lines.

Did you know you could cut felt with your Cricut?! Today I am going to show you how to cut felt with your Cricut and make felt flowers.

Cricut sent me some fely to try out and I knew flowers were the way to go.

A DIY tutorial on how to make a reverse canvas. Also a cute farmhouse kitchen sign with graphics from Craftbundles.com and cutting vinyl with your Cricut or Silhouette. I have been making farmhouse signs and pallet signs for years! Even selling them in a shop at one point. When I saw the concept of a reverse canvas my mind was blown. How had I never done this before. It was so simple there was not trip needed to the hardware store. Just a package of canvases from the craft store or amazon and you could have a custom farmhouse sign.
What's a single gal to do with all these Valentine's Day crafts popping up?! She's going to embrace her inner cat lady and craft something up for herself. That's what I did.

December is the month of giving. Whether it's a gift for a holiday party, a coworker or a hostess gift I find myself needing to come up with a lot of gift ideas in December. My go to is always a bottle of wine but I like to dress it up to make it feel more like a gift. Target has these buffalo check wine bags in the dollar spot for $3. How cute are they?! I mean even "as is" they would make a great gift but I thought I would add a little more holiday spirit with HTV and my Cricut Easy Press.

I posted about how much I loved the Hearth and Hand collection at Target and since then I have been staring at my Letters to Santa mailbox wondering how I could incorporate a letter to Santa. On instagram I have been seeing a lot of handlettering on scrolls for Christmas. I have even looked up a few of them but they are bit expensive for my budget. I decided why not try to create a smaller version using kraft paper and my Cricut!.

I just got my Cricut Explore Air 2 and I have been non-stop crafting since it has arrived. Of course I want to tell you all about the Cricut and also some tips I learned to help get you started.
What is a Cricut? A Cricut is a machine that allows you to cut. Think of it as a printer but instead of ink it uses a fine blade to cut what would normally print. And it doesn't only cut you can also use a pen to write or the scorer tool to score.
