I was challenged by Cricut to make an ugly sweater inspired stocking. I can't express how much I love my Cricut and all that it has to offer. My favorite part of it? The apps that you can do snazzy things with. I can lay in bed and create a file and not have to worry about cutting it until I get my act together. When I was on bed-rest, this saved me from going into a creative rut and saved my sanity from having to be in bed all day. I picked these awesome Rob & Bob Studio shapes and un-grouped them so that I'd be able to multiply and use them as single shapes rather than a card like it was designed for. I grouped the specific shapes into the coordinating colors so I could get all the cuts I needed on the same sheet. When you have this stuff, you don't want to waste a bit of it so, be sure to mirror your images so that everything will come out the right way!I used silver and black standard Iron-On and gold and white glitter Iron-On. When I used the standard Iron-On, I used the Iron-On setting. When I used the glitter Iron-On, I used the custom setting on my smart dial and selected Iron-On glitter from the drop down menu. You'll have to do 2 separate cuts – as in cut your regular Iron-On and then start a new cut all together for the glitter Iron-On. You cannot change the cut settings in the middle of the cut if it's a custom setting. If you'd like the FREE Cricut Design Space file, click here. You will have to pay for the shapes if you don't have a subscription or if you don't own the files yet. They are also having an awesome Christmas sale so be sure to check that out if you've been wanting your own.Check out the Home for Christmas blog hop hosted by Hometalk.com and Country Living.com.
