FAUX LEATHER FASHION CHOKERS MADE WITH CRICUT

FAUX LEATHER FASHION CHOKERS MADE WITH CRICUT

*This is a sponsored post.

Faux Leather Chokers made with the Cricut you can get all details at sugarcoatedhousewife.com
How fun is this? I am seriously obsessed with chokers right now!! I came across some Faux Leather from Cricut, and thought immediately about all the fun things I could make! Some chokers, were first on the list!! I have never made jewelry before so I had to get a few new tools and hardware to put them together. I already had my Cricut machine,which I needed to cut the leather. Do you have a Cricut machine yet? if not, you may be wondering, How does the Cricut machine work? The Cricut is a machine that is linked to a program on the computer called Cricut Design Space. In the program you can create your projects in layers and specify colors and size. You send the images to the Cricut. Insert the mat with the correct paper, vinyl, faux leather, iron on material, ect..and the machine does the rest!! It’s incredible how quick and easy it makes these projects! Today I am going to share some tutorials on how to make 3 different Faux Leather Chokers.

“BE THE LIGHT” CUSTOM HOLIDAY SHIRT MADE WITH THE CRICUT EXPLORE AIR 2

“BE THE LIGHT” CUSTOM HOLIDAY SHIRT MADE WITH THE CRICUT EXPLORE AIR 2

*This is a sponsored post. All opinions are my own.

Fun holiday shirt that you can make yourself using the Cricut Explore Air 2 get the tutorial at www.sugarcoatedhousewife.com

How cute is this shirt?!!!! I am so excited to share with you guys this new tutorial! The Cricut Explore Air 2 is seriously so amazing. This was my first time using the iron on materials and it was so easy. Cricut has made it very simple and with the new machine, they have taken all the guess work out of having to figure out what material settings you need. Lets begin!

Materials needed:

  1. Cricut Explore Air 2 you can get yours –> HERE
  2. 12×12 Cutting mat
  3. T-Shirt
  4. Grey Cricut Iron-on material
  5. Glitter Red Cricut Iron-on material
  6. Ironuntitled-design-2Open Cricut design space. Search for Christmas Reindeer. Select the image below (it doesn’t have a nose, I added that after.) Size your reindeer to the size you desire for your shirt. Click, add text. go ahead and type, BE THE. Go to the edit tab on the upper right hand side of the design space and change the font. I used the Cricut font called, Thursday Type. Resize to fit inside the antlers. Add more text and type, Light. Change the font. I used the Cricut font called, Yours Truly. Resize to fit underneath the reindeer head. Now you will need to weld the word, Light, with the word selected, click the layers tab on the upper right hand menu bar. At the bottom of that tab, click the ungroup button. This will allow you to drag each individual letter and make them touch so they will all be connected. Once you drag them together how you like click the weld button on top of that same menu bar. You will need to adjust the size slightly again. To add the Nose. Select, insert shapes from the left menu bar. Select the circle, and adjust it to the size you want the nose. You can sync the layers of the items that will be cutting in the same color. Drag the nose, and all the wording to the same line. That way, you can cut it all out in one shot. Now we are ready to cut. Click the go button.
    screen-shot-2016-11-20-at-6-27-01-pmMake sure you put your iron-on material face down. Place the liner side down like this.

cp3-8221

Here you will need to select, MIRROR IMAGE. When you are cutting iron-on you will always need to use this feature. Click GO.

screen-shot-2016-11-21-at-12-06-10-am

Turn the dial on your, Cricut Explore Air 2, to the custom setting. You will get a drop down box on the next page where you will  need to select, Glitter Iron-on. This material is much thicker then the regular Iron-on so you will need to use this setting for it to cut all the way through.

screen-shot-2016-11-21-at-12-08-54-am

Now you are ready to cut. Load your mat and when the Cricut button is flashing, push it. It is hard to see what has been cut so hold it up in the light and carefully cut around each word and shape, to make the area you have to remove smaller and to save as much unused material as you can. Remove the negative, this is called weeding. You will end up with something like this. The machine does a “Kiss Cut” which means it only cuts through the material and not the liner. That way you can transfer it to your shirt and keep it all intact.

cp3-8243

Follow the same steps for the Grey Iron-on to cut out the reindeer head. You can use the dial and choose the Iron-on setting with this material. It is the normal weight and will cut perfect with that setting. Once all you materials are cut and weeded, you are ready to iron it on. First place the Reindeer, centered where you want it.

cp3-8258

Follow the Iron-on instructions on the inside label of the material. Once you have the reindeer on add the words and nose and follow the instructions again.

*I USED A LIGHT WEIGHT PIECE OF MATERIAL ON TOP OF THE LINER I FELT LIKE THE LINER WAS GOING TO STICK TO MY IRON.

cp3-8289

Look how awesome it looks!!!!!! That was so easy and looks perfect.

Perfect Thanksgiving shirt. Share how thankful, grateful and blessed you are with others around you. Get more info at sugarcoatedhousewife.com

I love this time of year! All the holiday parties and get togethers with friends. Thanksgiving is such a great time to slow down and to think about all the things that are really important in life. This shirt, from Cents of style ,really says it all. Thankful, Grateful and blessed. My life is pretty busy right now with 3 little boys ages 5, 3, and 1. The house is never quiet and I feel like I can never keep up with them! I have had to let go and realize that its ok if the dishes aren’t done right now. Its ok if there are toys everywhere! I never imagined that this is where is would be 5 yrs ago. My boys are truly the biggest blessing!! Before we had our first son we struggled with infertility. I had 3 miscarriages with a year of trying to conceive in between each one. This was one of the biggest trials in my life, It was so hard to want something so badly and have no control!! We went through tons of testing with no answers or explanation to why this was happening. We decided to try Clomid with IUI and we finally were able to have our first little baby boy!! We were so excited and thankful for this blessing that we had been given. To my shock and surprise, we had no trouble at all getting our other 2 boys. It’s so crazy how life works out. I am so grateful for the beautiful family that I have been blessed with.wright-h-2131

This Darling Floral Swing dress in olive green is amazing!! Quality fabric, Perfect design, and affordalbe price! Sugarcoatehousewife.com

This floral swing dress in olive green is seriously my new favorite!! I love the beautiful floral pattern and the cut of this dress is just amazing. The high neck and long sleeves are perfect for the fall. The fabric is incredibly soft and thick, which makes it hang nicely and create such a flattering silhouette. I got this dress at a darling shop called Journey 5. Their goal is to help women look and feel good, while keeping the clothes functional and fashionable at great prices. As a mother this is so important to me! It’s hard sometimes to get dressed up when someone is always pulling and tugging on you, wiping their food or snot all over your clothes!! It can be so frustrating!! but being a mom to 3 little boys, its just gonna happen!! I love that this dress gave me the coverage and movement that I needed to get through the day.The swing dress is one of the hottest trends this season and this pattern and color are so beautiful and perfect for your fall wardrobe. Today, this dress is on sale for a killer deal! only $26.00!!! Hurry and get yours before they are gone @Journey5

I love uptown cheapskate! i was able to fin these awesome items for an amazing deal!! blazer, black purse, camel tote, and a hat! great prices, affordable fashion. Visit Sugarcoatedhousewife.com

Have you heard of Uptown Cheapskate? It is a store that will buy your gently used items and then resale them. Their mission is to keep clothes rotating through closets and provide the best possible selection of gently-worn fashion for their customers! I recently visited their store and was so impressed with the selection I found!! They have everything that you can think of! I have been really wanting to update some of my accessories. Since I have had kids my purse has been replaced with a diaper bag. Everytime I went to leave the house without the kids, I realized I didn’t have anything that was in style anymore! In the last 5 years i have probably only bought 1 purse and everything else I have is totally outdated!  I was so excited when I went into Uptown Cheapskate and saw their selection of purses! I was able to get these two that I really loved at awesome prices!!

I love uptown cheapskate! i was able to fin these awesome items for an amazing deal!! blazer, black purse, camel tote, and a hat! great prices, affordable fashion. Visit Sugarcoatedhousewife.com

The Black Purse was $9.99. The Camel tote was $13.99. I also found a cute Burgundy hat for $9.99 and this darling blazer, perfect for fall for $23.99. I had such a great experience there and it was so much fun to search through the racks to find just the right thing!! If you have cleaned out your closet and are looking to make a few bucks, head to Uptown Cheapskate and sell them your gently used clothing. Find something new that you love with their huge selection! I had such a great time that i have teamed up with them for a GIVEAWAY!! visit me on Instagram @sugarcoatedhousewife to enter to win a $25.00 giftcard. GOOD LUCK!! xoxo
