New Adventures in Etsy-land!

So if your on my Facebook page, you will know that I’ve started another Etsy shop.  We have decided to call this one Great Lakes Craft.  We also have a Facebook page to follow along too!  This one my husband helps with.  He bought a machine for his business and I was like, I know I can use this and I know that we can make good money with what I want to make, so we tried it, and so far after just a few weeks, sales have been constantly coming in!

If your interested in purchasing a wood monogram, I can do other fonts too! Just message me and ask!  Go ahead and check out my pages for more information!

Where It All Started- Silhouette Cameo Project

I was asked to make a unique wedding shower gift and once I looked online for some inspiration I came up with this fabulous pillow!! I just LOVE how it turned out!DSC_0198-1I used my Silhouette Cameo just like I use with a lot of my other projects.  This was a project made with freezer paper, paint and fabric.

I bought some fabric from JoAnn Fabrics in a tan color, almost like a Muslin.  Then I had the regular paint at home, which I just added fabric medium to it.  I use a flat headed sponge brush to paint it and freezer paper stencil cut out from my Silhouette.     photo 1 (10)You cut the negative image out on freezer paper, and you mirror the image.  You then iron the freezer paper onto the fabric, with shiny side down, and it temporarily sticks to the fabric your ironing it onto.  This creates a stencil and you can paint it how you wish! I’ve did this quite a few times with the other pillows I have in my Etsy Shop too.   photo 2 (10)Just brush the paint on, and make sure the whole area is covered.  Don’t put too much on or it will take forever to try and it might seep through the edges of the paper and your project won’t turn out right. photo 3 (4)Tada!  After the paint dries, you peel off the paper and you have your project!!  I thought a little red in the heart would be perfect for this pillow.  The pillow is meant to represent where the couple met each other.  I know they will love it! I can’t wait to get it listed on my Etsy Shop! DSC_0200-1
