Make Custom Cactus Watercolour Prints using Derwent Academy and Xyron

July 25, 2018

These cactus printables are perfect to hang in a nursery or in your home. Use some Derwent Academy Watercolour supplies to make it tens times better than a black and white printable. This post contains affiliate links. Thank you for your support.

I made these cactus printables even better by using some Derwent Academy products and my Xyron Sticker Maker. Create your own 3D cactus art by following the easy steps below .These cactus printables are perfect for home decor. Use some Derwent watercolour pencils and add the perfect dimension to this already great artwork. #CactusPrintables #CactusPrint When I began experimenting with different art mediums, watercolors were always a favorite of mine. I learned that you have to start with the lightest colour and then moving into dark colors when with oil paint, you have to do the opposite. Watercolor dries fast and using Derwent Academy Watercolour Pencil Tins and Derwent Academt assorted brushes are a great alternative to panned watercolors.

Supplies

Begin by printing out the cactus printables just on standard copy paper. You will then trace the cactus images onto your Derwent Academy Watercolour Pad paper using a waterproof pen. These cactus printables are perfect for home decor. Use some Derwent watercolour pencils and add the perfect dimension to this already great artwork. #CactusPrintables #CactusPrint These cactus printables are perfect for home decor. Use some Derwent watercolour pencils and add the perfect dimension to this already great artwork. #CactusPrintables #CactusPrintUse your Derwent Academy Watercolour Pencils and use whichever color palette you want. I used 4 shades of green and then I took the assorted brushes and hastily applied water over my pencil shades.

I wanted an imperfect look so I didn’t follow any outer lines and even got some splashes on the paper. To do that, blend your colors and before washing out your brush, just flick it over the paper. These cactus printables are perfect for home decor. Use some Derwent watercolour pencils and add the perfect dimension to this already great artwork. #CactusPrintables #CactusPrint Allow it to dry and then cut some free formed floral shapes out of your felt. I used a coral color but, again, use whatever fits into your color scheme. Run the felt through your Xyron Sticker Maker and then apply it directly to the paper. For a more dimensional look, I layered them and scrunched some areas together for bulk. These cactus printables are perfect for home decor. Use some Derwent watercolour pencils and add the perfect dimension to this already great artwork. #CactusPrintables #CactusPrintFrame these perfect watercolor cactus printables for your home or as an easy gift for a home warming present. I love these and I’m saving these for when we move and I can get some artwork up on more walls! These cactus printables are perfect for home decor.

Not By The Hair Of My Chinny-Chin-Chin Printable and Gift Idea

October 23, 2017

Women of any age suffer from the dreaded whiskers. Grab her some electronic tweezers and this fun facial hair printable and gift her something useful.Not by the hair of my chinny chin chin. Grab this free witch printable for the hairy person in your life.This post contains affiliate links. Just like any printable I offer on my site, this is for personal use only.

I don’t know a woman who doesn’t deal with whiskers or full-blown chin hair. If you don’t, then I don’t know what kind of witch-craft you’re doing but teach me your ways! It’s always a fun joke in our family and so one day at Ulta, I found this electronic tweezers that has six that spin around and grab them. It works awesome so I had to get my mom and sister-in-law one ASAP.I couldn’t just hand it over. That’s not my style. I had to make a cute little print to go with it. One of the witches faces even have two little whiskers on it. It’s only on one of the witches faces by mistake but it’s actually pretty cute so I’ll leave it to you to decide which one you want.

Supplies

Easy enough, just print off the printable and cut it into the 4.25×5.5″ rectangle. Punch a hole in the corner and attach it to the box with some twine. I looped my twine a lot of times and so it looks like hair. Just a play on words. Give it to the hairy women in your life and laugh about it. There is always wax and someone is always coming up with great inventions like this to help women like us.

I love the thought of giving something like this for Halloween. Who knows, I may make one for men one of these days but I know hairy chins don’t bother them as much.

How to make your own labels with Cricut

May 26, 2017

Did you know you can make your own custom labels with Cricut?
It’s so easy and made this Twin Baby Shower memorable.Make custom labels with your cricut exploreThis post contains affiliate links. Thank you to Cricut for sponsoring this post.

This baby shower that I helped throw for my friend was amazing! She just delivered her twins and I’m so proud of her – mainly because I can barely handle one infant, let alone two. When we had her baby shower, I wanted the girls to be able to take something with them when they left. We like to party simple so we just gave everyone a bag of popcorn adhered with labels we created using these super cute images from Cricut Design Space. I also made the mini onesie boxes and adhered a label using the same method. Links to the canvasses are at the bottom of this post.Create your own labels with Cricut and use them for parties all the way to plannersI didn’t want a piece of paper taped on our cellophane bags so I created super easy labels inCricut Design Space. Making labels with Cricut is so easy and it’s a feature I use often. For a step-by-step process on the Print-then-Cut method can be found here.Create your own labels with Cricut and use them for parties all the way to plannersFirst, choose your design and choose what shape you want your labels to be. I chose a white circle and placed the image on top of the circle. I then selected both shapes and attached them, then you’ll choose to flatten them. I did it for the green and the pink labels.Create your own labels with Cricut and use them for parties all the way to plannersNext, you’ll use the Printable Vinyl available online or at your local craft store. You can use the sticker paper but it’s too thick for me to pull through my printer and the vinyl is more flexible for the cellophane bags.Create your own labels with Cricut and use them for parties all the way to plannersBefore you fill your bags with popcorn, add your label you made with Cricut on to the front. Now add your popcorn and tie with your twine.Create your own labels with Cricut and use them for parties all the way to plannersFor the mini onesie boxes, I used the Sorbet Sampler Cardstock and cut the shape. I did use hot glue on the fold to be sure that it held together. I then filled them up with candy and looped them close. For the fronts, I cut out a circle using white glitter cardstock and adhered the label to that. For the font, I used Lemon Tuesday which is free for personal use. I love this font.Create your own labels with Cricut and use them for parties all the way to planners
