  2. We’ve teamed up with Arlena from BossyBrushstrokes.com again to bring you another one of her amazing original hand-lettered designs to use in your projects for free! When Alrena shared this darling design with us, we knew it would be perfect on a canvas! We decided on using the vinyl stenciling technique for this project and are in love with our new custom piece of art!. Want to give it a try? Keep reading! You’ll need: A canvas (we used an 8x10” canvas, but you could make this as big or small as you’d like!) Acrylic paint in whatever colors you’d like to use for your canvas and white Cutting machine (we used a Cricut Maker for this project) Removable adhesive vinyl – we choose Oracal 631 in white (you can use whatever color of removable vinyl you happen to have – you will be peeling this off so it won’t be part of the final project) Transfer tape Weeding tool Scraper Tweezers Bossy Brushstrokes’ Plant Seeds Grow Blessings SVG cut file (download here: Craftey-BossyBurshstrokes-PlantSeed-CutFile.svg) Step 1: Prep your Canvas Give your entire canvas a once over with the white paint. The paint gives your canvas a smoother surface for the vinyl to stick to. Allow the paint to fully dry while you cut your design. Step 2: Design Upload your SVG file to Design Space or Silhouette Studio and resize it to fit your canvas. Step 3: Cutting Stick your vinyl to your mat and press the GO button on your machine to begin cutting. We opted for a light grip mat for this project. Step 4: Weeding Once your machine is done cutting, remove the sheet of vinyl from your mat and cut away the area with your design. Use your weeding tool to weed away the negative areas. Step 5: Transfer your Design Cut a piece of transfer tape to fit over the weeded design and use your scraper to burnish over the design until it has completely adhered to the transfer tape. Peel the transfer tape off of the vinyl backing and apply the design to your canvas. Burnish over the design a few more times to ensure it sticks strongly to the canvas. Step 6: Paint your Canvas This step is *crucial* to making sure you have clean lines once you remove your stencil! Paint over the entire canvas, including the stencil, with the white paint. This seals the edges of the vinyl so that you don’t get any bleeds under your stencil when you paint over it with your color. Let it dry completely. Step 7: Paint your Canvas (again!) Once your second coat of white paint has dried, you’re ready to add some color! We did a purple-y ombre look on our canvas but the sky is the limit here – do whatever makes you happy Step 8: Remove your Vinyl Stencil and Enjoy! Let your paint dry for a few minutes (until it’s tacky but not totally dry) then carefully remove your vinyl stencil using tweezers and that’s it – you’re done! Arlena does absolutely beautiful work that is just begging to be turned in to a cut file and used on your totes, shirts, mugs, and canvases. She created this design especially for the Craftey community and we are so excited to share it with you! Download the free ready-to-use SVG cut file and get Craftey!

  3. This week marked the official start of Spring, and boy are we ready! While we patiently wait for the warmer weather, we’ve been watching tons of fun spring crafting ideas pop up all over the web and wanted to get in on the fun! Today we’re sharing a quick tutorial on a simple DIY spring sign. Enjoy! You’ll need: A blank sign (we used a blank chalkboard frame we picked up at the Target Dollar Spot, but any blank sign or even a plain wood plank would work!) Cutting machine (we used a Cricut Maker for this project) Permanent adhesive vinyl – we choose Oracal 651 in white Transfer tape Weeding tool Scraper Here Comes the Sun SVG cut file (download here: Craftey-HereComesSun-SpringSign.svg) Step 1: Design Upload your SVG file to Design Space or Silhouette Studio and resize it to fit your sign. Our sign was about 9” x 7”, so we sized our file approximately 8.25” x 6.5”. Step 2: Cutting Stick your vinyl to your mat (color side up) and press the GO button on your machine to begin cutting. We opted for a light grip mat for this project. Step 3: Weeding Once your machine is done cutting, remove the sheet of vinyl from your mat and cut away the area with your design. Use your weeding tool to weed away the negative areas. Step 4: Transfer your Design Cut a piece of transfer tape to fit over the weeded design and use your scraper to burnish over the design until it has completely adhered to the transfer tape. Peel the transfer tape off of the vinyl backing and apply the design to your sign. Burnish over the design a few more times to ensure it sticks strongly to the sign. Step 5: Enjoy! Carefully peel away your transfer tape and that’s it – you’re done! Looking for more free spring themed cut files? You can find some here!

  5. Love is in the air, so we wanted to share a quick and easy love-inspired DIY with you. Enjoy! DIY: Heart-Shaped Elbow Patches Start with a plain long-sleeved top. Cut out a simple heart design (download our heart template below) on a heat transfer vinyl of your choice. Remember to mirror your image before you cut it! Try on your top and carefully place a pin where your elbow hits the back of the sleeve. Remove the top and use a measuring tape to find the distance between the cuff of the sleeve and the pin. Write that measurement down – this is where you’ll want to place the center of your heart when you iron it on. Set your iron to the cotton setting and allow it to heat up. Meanwhile, remove the pins from your shirt and warm the spot where you are going to be placing the HTV for 10-15 seconds with your iron. Place the heart where you’d like it to go on the sleeve (this is where that measurement you took earlier comes in) and firmly press with your iron for 25-30 seconds. Flip the sleeve over so you're pressing from the back side and press for an additional 25-30 seconds. Allow to cool for 1 – 2 minutes before removing the clear backing. Repeat steps 4 and 5 for the second sleeve and that’s it! You’re done! The whole process took us about 15 minutes start-to-finish. Easy! If you try this DIY be sure to share a picture in the comments below, we’d love to see your projects! Craftey-Heart-Elbow-Patch.svg
  6. The big game is just a few days away but let's face it -- we're really only in it for the commercials (and maybe the nachos). If this sounds like you, we've got a freebie you'll love! You can download our ready to use, free "I'm just here for the commercials" svg cut file below. We used Cricut Glitter Multi Pink Iron-on and placed it on a 3-6 month onesie. If you give this a try, be sure to share a picture of your finished project - we'd love to see it! Enjoy! ImHereForTheCommercials-Project.svg
