Monday Showcase: Simply Charmed


Good morning and welcome to Cooking With Cricut's Cartridge Showcase. Each Monday a member of our Design Team will feature a Cricut cartridge of their choice and projects they've made with that cartridge. We hope you'll be inspired to pull out your cartridges and find new ways to use them!

Hey, everyone!  This is Chef Jean here to share with you a project from the Simply Charmed Cricut cartridge. This cartridge has some adorable images for many seasons and holidays along with some really cute general images and sayings.

I created a little home decor project using this cartridge to share with you. 


To make this, I started with a small block that I purchased on clearance and some blue Rust-oleum paint to cover the block.


Once my paint was dry, I used my Gypsy to size the saying from the Simply Charmed Cartridge. This particular saying has a smiley face in the letter a, so I hid that and used the circle from the "g" to make the a cut how I wanted it. Once this was finished, I used white vinyl to cut the saying for the block.


Then I used the bird from the Simply Charmed Cartridge and cut him in different shades of blue. Once he was assembled, I added some white accent lines and a google eye to give him some detail and then hot glued him to the front of my block.

You could also use this same technique to make decor for the holidays, gifts, etc.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Don't forget to check back Tuesday morning to see what this week's Guest Designer has whipped up.
