I learned so much from Cricut Craftfest organized by Abbi Kirsten! There were so many instructors and free projects. I took almost all of the classes during the 24 hours that they were free and downloaded the files. The first thing I learned was how to roll roses. I learned I needed a quilling tool with my arthritic fingers. I had a shadowbox with a transparent rainbow sticker and thought pink flowers would make it pop more. It does. It was a great fast and easy project that goes well with my spring decor!
The next project was cardstock fairy houses! The house in the foreground is not finished yet but should be soon! I made them per the pattern and realized if I make the next ones a little larger they will fit over a oui yogurt jar and be stronger. I put tea light candles that are battery powered in them. They will be perfect for my spring fairy vignette in my living room. I need to see fairy lights all year and not just at Christmas! I want to try making different flowers and possibly fall themed ones to for Halloween! That’s why I love my Cricut the possibilities are endless and I can find so many generous makers who have lovely freebies out there!
Yesterday I made a Shamrock Mandala. I found it in Cricut design space. There were a whole year of holiday and seasonal mandalas that could be framed or used in a Home sign. I chose to frame it and then get my other St Patrick’s Day decor out! Mandalas are some of my favorite things to make! I used the intricate cut setting for cardstock on my Maker and it cut like a dream!
It’s another cold and snowy day here so I think I am going to knit and work on my fairy houses!
I made all of these on my Cricut maker and the shamrock was in the membership portion of Cricut design space.
