Oh my goodness! An almost $700 heat press for $222! Want to make professional-appearing shirts & bags on your Cricut machine? You MUST invest in a heat press! Irons are great for when you’re starting out, but when you begin to get dozens of orders, you need to upgrade to a professional heat press. This one allows you to make caps, mugs, and anything that you can press! Cut your HTV with your Cricut, and use this heat press to apply!
Nudge your honey to get you this one while supplies last. What a deal!!
Spent a few hours this weekend making Christmas cards for the first time for my family and friends. I made two different designs — one, this adorable Santa face, courtesy of an online crafter who shared the design with her subscribers. I embossed Santa’s beard with my favorite folder, added chalk for the cheeks (applied with my finger) but otherwise created it very simply. All of these are cardstock cuts pieced together. It took 5 minutes to cute and 5 minutes to assemble.
Another one I made was from Cricut’s ‘make it now’ collection. You click on the link on Design Space, and it’s already created for you. You simply choose your paper, load your machine, and go. The red is die cut, and the white is a blank card I bought at Joann’s in a pack of 50 that included envelopes, as well.
I ran the red die cut cardstock through my Xyron to adhere it to the white card blank, used my Cricut to write a sentiment on the white cardstock interior, added some stickles on the front to make it glittery, then addressed the envelopes, and sent them off.
These were some fun and creative projects that I hope will mean a little more to my family and friends this year, with my first-ever created Christmas cards.
From my family to yours, have a very Crafty Christmas and a Happy New year!

I posted a few weeks ago about how I’m organizing my embossing folders. I use Totally Tiffany’s Karen plastic bag with a plastic box inside. I made little folders on my Cricut and embossed each folder with the folder that it holds. I numbered them all so I can find where they go when I’m done with them.
I went one step further, as I’m following Totally Tiffany’s Get Organized Challenge. I made small tags on my Cricut machine and laminated them. I then embossed each tag with each embossing folder I have and numbered the tags. I punched holes in each tag, and put them all on a D ring. Now I have a quick flip ring I can bring with me when shopping (to prevent buying duplicates), and also a quick and easy way to see what I own and grab the correct folder without digging through each of my three bags.
It’s working fantastic for me, and I hope it works for you, too! I’m including the link to the bags below. They’re very affordable if you’re a frugal crafter like me! Happy November & craft on!
