I’m all about keeping it real so I’m going to show you my failure. But first, I’m going to show you what I finally ended up with:
I ended up using some of the 12×12 chipboard from KNK USA and gluing some print paper I had and inked the edges. Then I cut the quote out in white vinyl and stuck it on.
Easy, Quick and fun.
Now for the failure:
I cut the image out and reverse weeded it and then stuck it on 8×8 canvas. I used acrylic paint and a foam brush and dabbed the paint on. when I peeled the vinyl off, I was left with this. I was ready to cry because it took me forever and what was in my mind was definitely not what I created.
I’m not sure what I did wrong, but I was very disappointed that it didn’t work.
Any suggestions, please let me know. I’ll have to go to my good friend Google and see what she says (yes. Google is a girl in my mind!)

I apologize for being late. I’ve been sick for three days. Finally seem to be on the mend so I was able to get into my craft room.
I know. I did a teacher thank you card last month. But then my favorite “go to” site www.lovesvg.com posted this design and I knew I had to use it.
I cut it out in red and green vinyl and reverse weeded it (and even used the hearts! It was easy, quick and done in no time at all. That’s my kind of card. These are 4.25 x 5.5 cards. I’m thinking I need to give one to my substitute today. Apparently my fish tank picked today of all days to overflow.

We were celebrating our niece’s “Quinceañero”, so I decided to make something really, really special for her. Using my wonderful KNK Groove-e, vinyl and some embelishment, I was able to make the “perfect” lettering, fixed in the position of an arc to put on top of a portrait of her, that i drew. The portrait, the arc, and the back of the numbers 15 were done using Styrofoam and vinyl. With her name and the number 15 on on the arch, decorated with flowers.
The materials that we are going to use for this project are:
Last week I was browsing through Target’s “Dollar” area, and spotted some cute little bags. I thought I could dress up bags with rhinestones for our little princesses for Easter. I had never worked with rhinestones before and figured this would be a good beginner project.
Yesterday I decided to get going on the project. However, after taking a better look at the Target bags, I decided the quality was so poor (even at $3.00 a piece) that it wasn’t really worth the effort: the bags are going back for a refund. I went through my stash of fabric and found a vintage tablecloth that I figured would be perfect for my little bags.
I have made several larger bags in the past, so I took the basic pattern for those bags and cut it down to make something more appropriate for little girls.
Our awesome KNK team sent me rhinestones several months ago but I had yet to take the time to learn how to apply them. Thank goodness for Sandy McCauley and her awesome videos! I watched all of her rhinestone designing videos and learned so much. (I will be watching a LOT more of her videos in the near future, because I learned so many awesome tips.)
Sandy made it look so easy designing the rhinestone templates that I couldn’t wait to get going. Of course, there was a bit of a learning curve so it didn’t seem quite as easy as it looked watching her, but I managed to get a good result for my first try.
Remove backing from rubber and place sticky side down on mat.
Use brayer, or rub firmly with hand to make sure rubber is adhered adequately to mat.
Insert into Zing and cut.
Peel template off mat slowly. Make sure all holes are clear. (All the circles should stay on mat.)
Apply rubber template to firm backing. I used a piece of foam board.
Place template in baking pan to contain rhinestones.
Spread rhinestones over template. Spread rhinestones over template until all holes are filled. Make sure all holes are filled and rhinestones are right-side-up.
Brush off excess rhinestones.
Cut piece of transfer tape and adhere to top of rhinestone design. Press gently and make sure all rhinestones are sticking to tape before removing from template.
Place your rhinestone design on your bag or other item.
Use iron on wool or cotton setting. Hold for ten seconds. Pick up to move slightly, and repeat a few times.
Remove transfer tape.
Holes Should be Empty and Circles will be Stuck to Mat
Spread Rhinestones Over Holes
If you are designing rhinestone templates for the first time, you will definitely want to watch Sandy’s videos. She also has a YouTube video that shows clearly how to apply them. You will learn a lot of tips that I did not include here.
