Hi Everyone, I know it's been a very long time since I've posted any type of crafting. 4 years to be exact! Well, I am back and while I'm not crafting as much as I used to, I am going to work on getting back in to the swing of things. I've been doing little things here and there over the last 4 years, but mainly working. I've made it part of my goal this year to do things I love and crafting is one of them. I also got a new toy from someone who loves me. Yes, the Cricut Air is now in my life. It's been challenging learning how to use it and trying to use all the awesome features especially since I took a small craft break, but I'm having fun learning it and remembering all the stuff I used to do! Here are just a few things I've done lately. I hope to post more and make more within the next few months. I also apologize for the photos. I tried to rotate them in the edit, but when I upload the saved document, it's still the wrong way! Hope all has been well with all of you! Mehana

I made these for a friend's Dad. It was his birthday and he loves Koi fish. Used regular Cricut vinyl! I also ended up making some for family, too, so I used the bamboo. I also made Chinese New year envelopes around the same time. I love making homemade gifts!
It's been a while since I actually created something useful! Now that the summer here and I have a few weeks of NOT doing school work, here are some of the creations I've made. I purchased the Tags, Bags, Boxes and More 2 cartridge and love it so far! It's a small pain to change out the scoring blade and the cutting blade, but it's worth it for the more intricate cuts/scores. I found that the gable boxes don't need the score blade - you can use a bone folder and it's equally as fast because you would spend the same amount of time changing out the blade instead of scoring it on your own. Please excuse the bottom picture - it was the prototype and you can see little tape sticking out =/

I made this box using the Sweet Tooth Cartridge. I made the turkey by cutting out hearts and a circles (some were Creative Memories punches, but you can also just make them on your Cricut using George and Basic Shapes). This was on the original bug at 5 1/2. I used the Glue Glider Pro to assemble and craft wire for the handle. You can make this box for any holiday!

These are eye lash leis! My aunty taught me how to make them. They are great for graduations, birthday's, and any other special occasions. The only thing I would not recommend them for are baby showers. In my family (and probably lots of others from Hawaii) believe that pregnant ladies should not wear any type of closed rope like things around their necks so they babies don't get anything around their neck while in their tummies if you catch my drift. My sister couldn't even wear necklaces.
If they make the yarn in a certain color, I can turn it in to a lei for you. It's $10 for one lei. They are long and go mid-chest. I'll post a picture of an actual person wearing it, but for now, my puppy was the only one home to model it for me.

Since I have the cut file made, it's really easy to do these in bulk. I played around with some acetate for a window, embossed stamping images, and glossy accent product. I even used some die cut (by Jolee) that I had that I won't use in my scrapbooks! I'm glad I found something to use it on!
I know I haven't posted much lately, but I haven't had much time to craft. In any case, I am still continuing to post things I make so here is the latest project =) These are post it covers! I used the Cricut Design Studio to make the cut file and this is the cutest thing ever! These make great gifts and I can customize them! This is for 3x3, 100 sheet post its.

More gift bags and a wine gift box! The cylinder was an old promo box from a friend and she was going to toss it. A tested it out and a wine bottle fit perfectly in the box! I used the word escape from the life's a beach cart. I don't drink anymore, but usually when people drink wine, it is to relax right??? I provided some close up pictures. Credit to Vince for picking out the the color contrast.
