Cricut Tote Bags

I am so EXCITED to show you what arrived at my doorstep!  

I just received my new Cricut Tote Bags, and let me just say... these are not your ordinary tote bags!

They are made of such high quality construction and materials.  Cricut really took the time to get these right.  I have owned several of the standard rolling totes for crafting, but never anything like these.

I have this thing packed with supplies and still have a lot of room left for plenty more!

I love how organized everything is.  I also love the fact that this rolling tote become a workstation.  The lid attaches to the rolling tote handle so that you can work right out of your tote

There are velcro bags that attach to the lid so that you can keep all of those little tools and bits in place.  I used one for my spray paints so that I don't risk a leak in the bag.  Brillant, Cricut!!

I love that they stack on top of one another.  The rolling tote rolls on all four wheels, so it's super easy to get in and out of the crop.  The material is this beautiful tweed charcoal gray color.  I think my heart skipped a beat when I saw how gorgeous these are.  I think I'm going to add the shoulder bag to my set!

They are on sale now!  If you use Code LORRIE you can get an additional 15% off and free shipping.  If you're an access member, you get another 10% off that!   You can see all three bags and order here.  For a close up look, watch my video below:

Wall Art with Cricut Explore

I have been working on my craftroom this week.  The walls have been neglected.  I wanted to make it a very inspiring area and I needed to add some girly, inspiring, pretty stuff on the walls.  Cricut to the Rescue!

I grabbed a couple of canvases, some Cricut Vinyl (glitter, matte and foil) and started working on a couple of decor pieces to liven up my craft space.  I made this Making Magic Happen using the Glitter Vinyl, and Black Vinyl by Cricut.

Next up was this fun canvas that says "Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful".  I used the Cricut Vinyl in Pink and Black, and the Gold Foil Vinyl (swoon).  This piece turned out so fun and I had the perfect spot to hang it.

I absolutely love how my wall art turned out.  I plan to make several more in the near future.

Here are the products I used on these projects:

Cricut Explore Air 2
Cricut Glitter Vinyl
Cricut Vinyl (matte)
Cricut Transfer Tape

More Hair Bows with the Cricut Explore

Let's just say, Evie should not have to buy another bow for a Very, Very, VERY long time! :)  Thanks to my Cricut Explore and some Heat N Bond I've got her covered.

This was a very much requested video:

Cutting Felt with the Cricut Explore!

I couldn't wait to try and make Evie some cute little headbands!  I mean does it get any sweeter than this?

But once I started, I couldn't stop!  I mean seriously!!!  I had to make one in every color!

And then I found MORE colors and had to make some more!  I'm not even finished with all the colors yet!  I think Miss Evie is all set for awhile!

I don't think she minds. :)    I made these with the Cricut Explore and some felt backed with Heat N Bond! (Products listed below).  It was so super simple and fast.  I am thinking I need hair clip bows for when she's a little older, headband bows/flowers, ponytail holders.   Heck even, planner clips.  

The Cricut and Felt work well together.  I couldn't believe how well the Cricut cut the bonded felt.

Here's a tutorial if you'd like to make the bows, too!  These are selling for $3-4 a piece on Etsy.. and seriously, cost me a few cents each.

Breakfast at Tiffany's Loaded Bag with Cricut Explore

 Happy New Year!!!  What an amazing year 2016 was!  I'm so excited for 2017 and can't wait to see what it brings!   I am starting the new off with a brand new video.

I created this Breakfast at Tiffany's Inspired Loaded Bag a week or so ago, but just now had a chance to film it.  I hope you enjoy watching as much as I did creating!
I used my Cricut Explore for so much of this project, including the bag itself and several print then cut images.  See those cute Pom Poms?  Here's the pom pom maker I used to make those.  So super simple!

I'm giving this loaded envelope away... watch the video (below) to find out how this could be yours!
