Come and Sublimate with ME!

  Convert an Epson ET-2720 into a Sublimation Printer! For my birthday this year my husband got me a printer that will use sublimation ink.  This has opened my eyes to a whole world of craftiness.  I did the research to find my best possible options and found a really good deal. What is Sublimation you ask? It is the process in which ink gets turned into a gas and infuses into the fabric or treated item causing the item to dye.  Its pretty awesome because there is no vinyl to deal with or weed.  You simply print an image and heat press it on with a heat press. Items you need to do this: Epson Eco Tank printer Most models will work, I bought the Et-2720 Sublimation ink, I bought the hiipoo brand found on amazon at this  link Sublimation Paper, I bought the paper on amazon at this  link Something to sublimate on. Must be 60% or more polyester or special treated items for sublimation purpose.  There are a ton of them on Amazon. A heat press or easy press but it must get to around 400 degr

Come and Make Shaker Cards with Me and Queen & Company!

 I LOVE Queen & Company shaker cards.  One of my best friends started showing me their products years ago and I fell in love with the ease of making them. They have so many kits available to purchase.  To find them visit  Queen & Co ( Come Craft Queen & Co. with Me! I recently purchased their hot air balloon shaker card kit and their suitcase shaker card kit. The hot air balloon kit includes enough product to make 4 cards minus the shaker toppings or shaker bits.  Once you are done with their precut shaker components, you can purchase more or make your own with the dies included in the kit. You get: 4 envelopes 4 cards shaped as hot air balloons 4 acetate covers 4 shaped foams 3 dies (The hot air balloon, outline die, and basket die) I love that you can use any color paper and it comes out beautiful. All the sentiments were done with different die sets that I own. As you can see below I used some floral papers, bakers twine, sequins for my toppings,  ink
