Tshirts from Piecing Patterns !

I snuck away to my craft room for a while today and wanted to share what I made from it.
I created a tshirt for my son using the Lil Champ file from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs. I probably should have used the transfer sheet for Dark colors but I was on the fence with the color.
I still think it came out pretty good.

My next attempt is to create a tshirt with my store logo.

How I created the logo.

I actually did this through my Sure Cuts A Lot program.

 I made sure to set my mat size to 8 1/2 x 11.

Then I went to File – Place Image. I opened up the Lil Champs folder and used the Finished Picture. You will most likely have to resize it.

Make sure your Keep Proportional option is checked.
If you are using just pictures this next part isn’t as big of a deal but I had words.

You will need to flip the image so it appears backwards, otherwise it won’t iron on correctly.

So you’ll be working with the image/words backwards. Then you can play around where you want everything placed together.

Then just be sure your printer is hooked up to your computer and click Print. Make sure your transfer paper is loaded in the printer.

Once I printed my project, I cut around everything and followed the iron on instructions.

Hope this helps. Not sure if this is exactly how it is supposed to be done but this is what worked for me.

LSHD Halloween Blog Hop

Photo: Don't forget this coming Wednesday... LSHD Blog Hop!!!
Happy Halloween!!!
This year for Halloween we, the Little Scraps of Heaven Designs DT, decided to get together and have a Halloween Blog Hop. I love that my daughter is in school now so I can finally put my creations to work! It’s so fun to make some treat packages for the kids and my daughter makes sure SHE gets one too!
If you have been following the hop and have come from Michelle’s Blog HERE  then you are in the right place. If you have just happened upon my blog please join us and head to Tricia’s Blog HERE to start hopping with us.
For the Halloween Hop I made treat boxes for school and co-workers. I made 38 total! I needed something adorable and quick to put together. This seems to be the popular choice this year and with good reason! I love this file! Here is the link to SILLY PUMPKINS cutting file that I used from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs.
Inside is a sucker upside down. I stapled the top of the green paper on either side of the sucker stick and glued my pumpkin piecing on the cover. 
I found this adorable idea on Pinterest! I love looking at a picture of all of them done – such a great feeling of accomplishment.

Easel Card Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Easel Card Blog Hop! If you’ve hopped here from Jenny’s blog – you are on the right track. Otherwise, so you don’t miss any fun, you can start back at the beginning with Ashley’s blog.

If you have never tried making on of these cards before – you should really try! They are fun to make and can serve many purposes. I’ll show you how!
First, here is a link to the directions how to make easel cards. Click HERE.
We have a busy month of birthdays for August and I will definitely be in need of some cards.
Here is what the front looks like.
Then when you pop it up – the button keeps it in place like a built in stand.

 Side shot –
The monkey on the cover was created by an svg file called Birthday Monkeys from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs of which I am a proud design team member for. 
Another great idea is change up your measurements and make you cover a 4″ x 6″ or 5″ x 7″ . Then put a picture on the cover. Works great for Christmas cards and instead of hanging it from the wall or on the fridge, it can display nicely on your table for the season. Another thought is putting your child’s school picture on there! Endless possibilities! 
Hope you enjoyed my project and ideas! Be sure to hop on over to Jessica’s blog for her fantastic project! If you get lost along the way here is the entire lineup.
