I love tote bags and love to give them as gifts. I love using rhinestones for decorations, but vinyl is also easy.
For the NC State bag, I used a design I had done before and cut it from flocking material.
I used Monogram KK font (free from daFont) for the letters, The State logo was from Varsity font. I get tote bags lots of places, but be sure they are canvas and don’t have plastic insides. That melts when you apply your monograms!
Great minds think alike! My November projects were using charger plates. All of the designs came from the MTC software. I’m trying to learn as much about the software as I can and wondered about the “Gallery” button. If you haven’t used it, DO IT! There are some great images that come with the software. For the Thanksgiving ones, I used the turkey outline and the grapes.
For the Christmas ones, I used the swirly tree, Christmas word tree and the Christmas candles. There are so many wonerful designs for us to use in the MTC software, I can’t wait to investigate more!
Thought I’d share my Halloween project. Thought they turned out very cute. I used small Mason jars I already had, used Lettering Delights files and decorated the jars. Then I filled them with candy for some special people. The pumpkins were from last year. The files are from My Vinyl Designers Halloween collection. All images were cut from vinyl. Happy Halloween All!
My favorite thing to do with my KNK software is to scan and trace. The software makes it so easy! One of my first attempts was an acrylic stamp and since then I’m hooked!
For this month’s project, I took a simple stamp
and scanned in just the plastic piece with the black outline of the image to make my cutting files. And since I have to use files in multiple ways, I didn’t stop with the simple scrapbook page:
I also made it into a rhinestone design for a T-shirt:
and for a cute little Trick or Treat canvas bag using iron on vinyl:
Hope I’ve offered some inspiration for the upcoming holidays! If you’ve never tried the scan and trace wizard, why not start today?
All supplies were purchased from KNKUSA except the T-shirt, bag and background paper.
