freezer paper + cricut = LOVE


i've been wanting to try freezer paper stenciling for a long time, but never got motivated. THEN my friend, lindsey, and i were discussing how she could embellish some hoodies for a bridal party - i told her to try freezer paper stencils, but she had a good point... so hard to cut out letters to make 6 hoodies. THEN it hit me... she could use her cricut to cut the freezer paper...GENIUS!



we weren't positive it would work, but it worked beautifully! do ya'll know what a cricut is?? they are amazing and i want one...they cut stuff - letters in tons of fonts, any shape/thing imaginable.

anyway...when we were in Oregon a few weeks ago i wanted to give it a try and decided that the Schwake kids needed some t's to celebrate siblinghood.


sorry these pics suck... the light was horrible and i was too lazy to do anything about it, but you get the idea right?? don't you feel like you need a cricut so you can embellish everything imaginable??



this is the whole ensemble that i sent Alisha... i love handmade stuff!

OH MY GOSH!! I LOVE these! the font is perfect. I don't like freezer paper stenciling either because of the pain it is cut something perfect. Such a good idea, I want a circuit too, they even do fabric!

LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! My friend Dara just got a Cricut and is now obsessed (she's the one who did my shower and some stuff for EJ's party). I was amazed when I saw the machine in action, but will never get one because of all the projects it would create for me. :) I'd be sucked in...
