New Name!

I recently left the Cricut Circle so I felt the need to change my blogspot name.  I am now writing under AZChirper (Arizona Chirper).  Hooray!

Goodbye Cricut Circle!

I exited the Cricut Circle and will be moving this content to a more appropriately named blog soon.

More Christmas Tags!

These elegant Christmas tags are made from the Winter Woodlands cartridge.  I added an eyelet and a red gem to set off Rudolf's nose!  I hope the ladies that I swapped with really like them!

Christmas Tag Made From 3 Birds on Parade Cartridge

Here's a tag I made for a Cricut Circle Swap.  This cute bird is from the 3 Birds on Parade cartridge.  He's super cute!  The light string took quite some time to do x the number of tags I made.  I love how the snowflake eyelet really sets it off!

Witch Freezer Paper Shirt Made with Pumpkin Carvings Cartridge

Micheals was having a $1.99 t-shirt sale so I stocked up.  Here is a t-shirt I made with the Cricut Pumpking Carvings Cartridge.   To create the freezer shirt follow these very simple steps:

1.  Place Freezer Paper paper side down (waxy side up) on your Cricut mat.
2. Press the flip function on your Expression, select your desing, and load your mat. 
3.  Using blade depth 3, pressure med, and speed med, cut your design.
4.  Carefully peel off the freezer paper.
5.  Iron the negative part of the design on your shirt with the waxy side down. The negative part of the cut is the stuff you normally throw away.  For these shirts, you'll need to keep it and throw away the normal cut.  I just doesn't feel right.
6. Paint the areas of the shirt.
7.  Let dry for 24 hours.
8.  Heat set with iron.
9.  Wash in cold water after 72 hours.
