What is the Cricut Contour Tool and how do you use it?
Heat transfer vinyl (or iron on vinyl) allows you to make custom t-shirts, tote bags, onesies, and more! This step by step guide with photos and screenshots shows you exactly how to cut heat transfer vinyl with a Cricut machine and iron it onto a t-shirt!
In the world of crafting, there are 3 main types of vinyl: heat transfer (for fabric), permanent (for signs, stainless steel, car decals, etc.) and removable. Up until now, I have done a number of heat transfer and permanent vinyl projects. Now it is time to try some removable vinyl projects. To be honest, at ...

The cricut machine can be just as overwhelming as it is amazing. There's SO much you can do, it's hard to know where to even start. Often the easiest way to get started is simply to start. Choose a project, and learn just what you need to know for that first project. But I know that's hard - so I've made a list of resources that might help while you decide where to start. Tools & Accessories What else should I buy? Tools & Supplies that will help with your projects - https://fieldsofhether.blogspot.com/2017/09/what-do-i-need-to-get-started-with-new.html Apps & Websites to use with cricut - sites & software that will make a lot of this easier! http://fieldsofhether.blogspot.com/2017/11/which-apps-websites-to-use-with-cricut.html Do I Need to Subscribe to Cricut Access? No. You may choose to, but you do not need to! I have never subscribed, and I have not missed it at all. There are thousands and thousands of free projects you can download online, then upload into design space! Where to find More Freebies than you could ever use - https://fieldsofhether.blogspot.com/2018/12/freebies-for-cricut-how-to-use-design.html To use free svgs in design space, you just need to download them, unzip the folder, find the svg (it often looks like an html file, displaying your default browser icon) and upload that to design space. How to View SVG Files as Thumbnails http://fieldsofhether.blogspot.com/2018/01/how-to-see-thumbnails-of-svg-files.html What are the different kinds of vinyl? HTV is the same as iron on - it's Heat Transfer Vinyl, and what you need if you are putting vinyl on fabric. 651 is permanent vinyl, and 631 is temporary vinyl (for things like wall decals) Which Vinyl Do I Need & Where Should I Buy It? http://fieldsofhether.blogspot.com/2017/09/cricut-which-vinyl-do-i-need-where-do-i.html This is one of the first "problems" you may run into when uploading photos to design space. If you upload something that is not an svg, it will automatically make it a print then cut image. You can clean it up and have it just cut, but you will need to change it to cut at the top of the page. How to "clean up" simple clipart to use in Design Space: https://fieldsofhether.blogspot.com/2018/12/how-to-convert-simple-free-clipart-to.html And if you want to convert your own photo into an svg to cut in design space, here is a comparison of 10 free sites and apps that will do that for you - https://fieldsofhether.blogspot.com/2019/02/programs-sites-for-converting-to-svg.html Using Text In Design Space A Detailed Step By Step of How to upload free fonts to design space https://fieldsofhether.blogspot.com/2017/12/all-about-fonts-text-in-cricut-design.html How to add swirls, curve, space and weld, and use writing fonts, in design space. http://fieldsofhether.blogspot.com/2017/12/using-text-in-design-space.html This is one of many "Quick Tip Cards" you can see in a facebook album here: https://www.facebook.com/pg/fieldsofheathercrafts/photos/?tab=album&album_id=242031163401556 (you do not need to have a facebook account to view the album) Do I Need To Buy A Heat Press? No. You may chose to buy one, and you will hear a lot about how you have to "use all of your body weight" to use an iron (false) and that vinyl will "not hold up as well" without a heat press (also false). Another option is an Easy Press, which is basically an iron made by cricut, with a chart for temps and times. But a plain old regular iron will work just fine too. https://fieldsofhether.blogspot.com/2018/11/using-plain-old-regular-iron-for-htv.html A Project To Start With - Using Vinyl For the First Time - Using your Cricut To Cut A Vinyl Decal For The Very First Time: https://fieldsofhether.blogspot.com/2019/11/cricut-for-newbies-lesson-2-vinyl-on.html Looking for more?

This man of mine. He's a funny one. We joked for days that his head would explode from all the views and that he was Instafamous! Ha! Really though, he just likes to make people smile... so bless him. And if his video inspires someone to make this awesome sign, PERFECT! The HOME sign is available for purchase HERE. Every year, the ladies in my church have what we call a Super Saturday. We craft things for our homes, as well as create gifts for others for Christmas. A year ago (maybe 2, who knows), we did a HOME sign with a cute green wreath as the O. The wreath definitely had a spring feel to it. It had a few of us thinking that would it be nice to have a sign that we could use for EVERY season. I won't lie... this sign was a BEAST to make. Each piece was hand cut by me on the scroll saw and then hand painted... every last dot. It was quite the project. A whole lot of love and time went in to this baby. I used 3 (Common: 1/2-in x 4-in x 2-ft; Actual: 0.5-in x 3.5-in x 2-ft) Poplar Board from Lowes and cut them to 20 inches long each. The 2 pieces on the back were cut from 1 (Common: 1/4-in x 2-in x 2-ft; Actual: 0.25-in x 1.5-in x 2-ft) Poplar Board. I made them long enough to go across all three boards at 9 inches each. I left a slight gap in between the boards before gluing (and nailing) them together. The sign dimensions ended up being 10.5 inches x 20 inches. Once the glue dried, I used my go-to stain color, Provincial (Minwax). Its my favorite. But really, you can stain and/or paint it whatever color you like. I did a coat of white paint over the stain and distressed it just a bit.... I wanted a neutral sign that wouldn't clash with the seasonal pieces. But you do you! You can do whatever color/stain you like - BE CREATIVE! I created a stencil using my Silhouette to paint the lettering for the sign. It takes more time than just using vinyl as the lettering, but I love the painted look. For the pieces, I traced different seasonal images and cut them on my scroll saw. I decided to go very simple with the painting - solid background with dots in a complementing color. It was a labor of love, but I love how each piece turned out! It was a big hit with friends and family. They even had suggestions for more pieces! I ended up adding a couple pieces for the sign - a TURKEY for Thanksgiving and a BALLOON for birthdays! Its so stinking cute and I love that it can be used YEAR ROUND! New Pieces have been added: The HOME sign is available for purchase HERE.
