DIY Kids Travel Activity Kit Vinyl Project Idea

Hello, Hello Crafty Friends! Shalon here for the Printable Cuttable Creatable Design Team with a super cute travel Art & Crayon Box project! I am often on the go with my kiddos and sometimes it is helpful to have some grab-and-go activities to keep my little one entertained (and well-behaved!)

DIY Kids Travel Activity Kit Vinyl Project Idea

This Art Box is a sturdy and handy way to achieve this! Using the Whole Split Monogram Crayons SVG Cut File & Clipart by Printable Cuttable Creatables I added my daughter’s name with Oracal 651 vinyl and Siser PSV vinyl from Michaels.
Then, I used vinyl scraps, my PicScan Mat, and a combination of the Birthday Confetti SVG Cut Files & Clipart and Birthday Party Hats Free SVG Cut Files & Clipart designs to create the confetti surrounding the split name image.

3 DIY on the go kids activity kit idea

Just as a little something extra, I added the Happy Crayon SVG File and some leftover confetti from the Art Box to a plastic crayon box from Dollar Tree.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • Oracal 651 Vinyl
  • Siser PSV Vinyl
  • Oracal Transfer Tape
  • ArtBin Quick View Carrying Case
  • Jot Crayon Box from Dollar Tree
  • Weeding Tools or Craft Knife
  • Scraper or Old Plastic Gift Cards
  • Parchment Paper (for layering vinyl) (see my tutorial for layering Multicolor Vinyl Designs) 8/4 post

I love the way it all came together and now I have a beautiful, on-the-go crafty container to hold creative supplies for car rides, restaurants, sports practices, and more! 

Happy Crafting!

Layering Heat Transfer Vinyl – HTV with Multiple Colors

Layering HTV Multiple Colors
Layering Heat Transfer Vinyl – HTV with Multiple Colors

Hi Everyone, Kris here!  In today’s video, I am walking you through my process of layering heat transfer vinyl – layering multiple colors of HTV in real time.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • SVG design – I used the Cozy Campfire SVG File from Printable Cuttable Creatables
  • Iron or heat press – I’m using a heat press machine
  • Heat Transfer Vinyl – I’m using the Kassa brand from Amazon
  • Blank T-Shirt – I’m using Bella Canvas
  • Teflon protective sheet
  • Weeding tool 
  • Cutting machine – I’m using a Cricut Maker
Camping Layering Heat Transfer T-shirt

The key to layering multiple colors of HTV is quick presses of each layer.  

I set my heat press to 305 degrees F (according to the Kassa packaging instructions). As you can see in the video, each of my presses is only 5 seconds, and then on the final layer, I press for 10 seconds.  

I hope that you enjoyed this video and I hope you have fun creating multi-layer HTV t-shirts as much as I do! 

I can’t wait to see what you make!

Fall Flower Wreath DIY Home Decor Idea

Fall Flower Wreath DIY Home Decor idea

Happy Labor Day weekend to our American friends and Happy Weekend to our around the world friends!  Christi here from Scrapping For Tranquility, making a fall wreath for my Design Team Post here at Printable Cuttable Creatables using the Fall Flower Flourish Group SVG File

Here is my project:

Fall Flower Wreath DIY Home Decor idea

I started with a foam wreath form from Dollar Tree.  (Love all the craft supplies they carry now!  It saves me a lot of money!) 

As I wrapped it in a brown ribbon, I was already liking how it looked, it just needed something else. We decided on a second ribbon, but thinner would look better, so I used a gold ribbon from my stash. Wanting to get my pieces made, I made my bow next.

I didn’t have any wired ribbon that matched the colors of my fall wreath, I used this pretty red ribbon with gold sheer. I wanted to make it a little fuller to make it feel more like a wired ribbon so I brought out my Bowdabra. I bought this years ago but this was one of those tools that really intimidated me.  

Why?  I have no idea since it was so easy to use once I watched their video on their website.  Anyhow, I really loved the fullness I got out of plain non wired ribbon.  What do you think?

DIY Fall Flower Wreath idea

Next, I wanted to make my flowers, leaves, acorns, berries and swirls.  I used my Cameo3 to do this.  I used all American Crafts and Bazzill Cardstock from 12×12 Cardstock Shop.  

I was not really happy with it being one dimensional.  So I used a flower ball to roll over the petals and leaves to soften the cardstock to make it softer and more shapeable.  This allowed me to make my flowers 2 dimensional and to add flat back pearls for my centers. 

Cardstock Fall Flower Wreath Craft Idea

Last but not least were the 3 shades of berries.  It added such a nice touch to the spray but it just needed something compared to the flowers.  The pearls I used were Rainbow Mixed Size Pearls by 12×12 Cardstock Shop.

There you have it!  I hope you enjoy just a bit of the Fall decor you can make with cut files from Printable Cuttable Creatables!  Make a cup of tea, coffee, hot chocolate and sit back and browse the site and find which files can make just the right project for your DIY Fall decor!  

The files I used from Printable Cuttable Creatables:

Back to School Mini Album

Back to School Mini Album

  Hello, everyone!

It’s Nancy here with a new project share!

 This week I am featuring:

Back To School Scrap Kit

This is such a fun kit!

It includes SVGs, clipart, and digital papers.

It was everything I needed to put together a fun little mini album. 

This album is perfect for documenting going back to school!

It’s been many years since I’ve had kids going to school

but I can still feel the excitement in the air this time of year.

Here’s the cover of my album:

 
Back to School Mini Album
 

I used 5 x 7 chipboard pieces for the base of my album.

Otherwise, everything is from the kit.

I printed out the papers and used them to cover the chipboard.

I inked around the edges with red ink.

The “Back To School” element was printed, fussy cut,

and adhered in place. 

I really love to fussy cut!

 

Back to School Scrapbook
 

Here I used another paper to cover both sides.

More fussy cut elements were turned into belly bands and tuck spots.

The polka dot paper is used as a photo mat throughout the album.

 
First Day of School Mini Album Idea
 

Here I have another background paper,

along with another tuck spot and belly band.

The chalkboard in the center was fun to make!

What I did was fussy cut two of the chalkboard elements.

I adhered them together – back to back – only on the sides and bottom.

I then added red eyelets, so they could be inserted into the album.

First Day of School Mini Album Layout
 

Here you see the other side of the chalkboard.

It is now a pocket for a sweet little journaling pad.

I cut papers to fit the pocket,

and then just stapled a topper in place that matches the background paper.

The fussy-cut bus and pencil offer more tuck spots.

On the final pages, 

more elements and more tuck spots.

Here is the back cover:

To finish things off, I punched holes and added binding rings.

I tied pieces of coordinating ribbons to the rings.

This is a really fun kit that inspires all kinds of creative projects;

both for documentation and for gifts! ;o)

Playful Tugboat Scrapbook Layout Idea

Playful Tugboat Scrapbook Layour Idea

Happy Sunday, Printable Cuttable Creatable Fans! Hope you are ready for the work week tomorrow and I hope it’s a wonderful week!  

Christi here from Scrapping For Tranquility!  I want to share a playful tugboat scrapbook layout I did that was a long time coming….oh let’s say, 25 years.  The baby girl in this picture wasn’t quite two and she is 27 years old now.  Hahaha! She had just gotten her new tugboat sandbox!  Boy was she excited!

Without further backstory……Here is my layout!

Playful Tugboat Scrapbook Layour Idea


This layout was soooo much fun to make!  I used several cut files from Printable Cuttable Creatables. I started with the Ocean Wave Borders. I used the two borders that were double layered in different shades of blue then layered the different shaped waves on top of each other.  Making sure I rotated a different shape each time I made a layer, I loved the way the water turned out.

Lighthouse Scrapbook Layout

Next up, I made the sand. I took the Bucket and Shovel SVG and this happens to be sitting on top of a heap of sand. I resized it in my Cameo3 and made three sand hills for each side of my layout to make it look more natural, and there I had my beach.

Nautical Scrapbook Inspiration

The Lighthouse SVG was just so amazing to watch come together! It has some awesome shading pieces to show the sunny side of the lighthouse.  I really think it is realistic looking.

Tugboat Scrapbook Layout

The second page of my layout has the ocean water and sand also but then I added the main feature of the Tugboat SVG and the Sun and Clouds SVG.

Tugboat Paper Piecing Project

The tugboat is just ADORABLE! So many things you could use this for in your layouts and cards.  Let your mind run wild!  I just tucked it in between my waves and glued it down.

Sunny Day Paper Piecing Project

The sun and clouds were just what my layout needed. It really made my layout POP!  PCC has so many different sun and cloud SVGs to choose from, stop by and check them out!

Tugboat Scrapbook Idea

Last but not least, I made my title with the stash of fonts I have on my Cameo3.

Have a blessed weekend!

Under the Sea Mermaid 3D Box Card

Under the Sea Mermaid 3D Box Card

Hey everybody! Leslie here and thanks for joining me on the blog today. 

Have you ever seen a paper aquarium?! I never have, so I made one featuring the Under the Sea Cutting File Scrapbook Title, Cute Mermaid SVG File and Seaweed SVG File!

It’s a lot like a box card but 8″ square when standing, has acetate across the front, and it folds flat for mailing if desired! Even though I don’t tolerate the heat very well anymore, I still love creating summer and beach projects!

Mermaid Box Card Idea

I started by constructing the aquarium from heavyweight white cardstock. I cut panels for the outside and die-cut waves for the inside from blue crinkle paper and adhered them in place.

Under the Sea Mermaid 3D Box Card

I cut the pieces of the Under the Sea title, assembled them, and adhered it to the back wall of the aquarium.

I moved the small seaweed down to the middle wave panel. I then cut the pieces in the Cute Mermaid SVG file after flipping the file, assembled her, and adhered her to the bottom wave panel. I embellished her with pearls and gemstones. 

Then finally I cut the pieces for one of the options in the Seaweed SVG file, assembled it, and adhered it to the bottom wave panel. The final step was adhering a panel of acetate across the front.

Acetate is very hard to photograph but this close-up photo actually came out pretty cool-looking because it yields a rippled effect which is somewhat realistic of an underwater scene! I can assure you that all the elements are actually flat!

Under the Sea Mermaid 3D Box Card

Here’s an overhead shot so you can see the simple box card type construction.

Thanks again for stopping by today, and we’ll see you next time!

Scrappy hugs,

Then I assembled bits of a variety of papers that match the school theme

Now it’s time to add some fun back-to-school cut files from Printable Cuttable Creatables! I used some as a single layer (Print & Cut) and some as multi-layer paper piercings. That’s all up to your imagination.

Here I added the Lil-Crayons-Pencils-Borders-Set SVG Cut File as a border as stacked double layers with foam tape between to look 3D for my layout.

Next, I added the First Day of School Free SVG Title using multi-colored paper pieced layers.

I added some first-day of school photos on designer dollies.

Back to Basics – Beginner Scrapbook Layout

Beginner Scrapbook Layout

Good Morning Printable Cuttable Creatable and Scrapping For Tranquility Fans!

I, like many seasoned scrapbookers, like to make elaborate scrapbook pages. Then there are times I think back to when I was first starting out. How I felt reading a lot of the blog or store posts and wished they would make it for the “newbies” or the ones just learning to start to paper piece and/or scrapbook.  

Well, that is what I hope to do today and with my future posts. I am going to “get back to basics”!  Today we are just going back to talk about just putting your pieces together and using only 1 piece of cardstock for your background.  NOTHING WRONG WITH THIS!

Back to Basics - Beginner Scrapbook Layout


Here is my layout for this week. My grandson starts preschool for the first time the first week of September. I wanted to get a step ahead and have his layout ready!

I used the fun files Lil Crayons & Pencils Banners Set SVG Cut File & Clipart to title my page. This was such a simple way to make my title.

I counted out my letters and made the banners I needed and the colors I wanted and cut them on my Silhouette Cameo 3.

I glued them together with my Bearly Art Glue. Picking a font I wanted, I sized it down to fit the banner oval. I wanted to spell out “First Day of Pre-School”. I made a shadow for my title to make it stand out more. In the picture, it is still hard to read but rest assured, in person, there is no problem reading it. LOL

Back to School Scrapbook Layout

Next, I used the awesome file Crayons & Pencils Circle Monogram Frames SVG Cut File & Clipart. I thought this would be such a fun frame to use for my grandson’s first day of preschool photos. I usually take one with his sign saying what grade he is going in and a picture with his teacher. So, 2 photo frames are what I was shooting for. I made them at 5 inches each and I also cut my black mat at 5 inches. I then took small adhesive foam tabs to make the frames pop up a bit.

Screen Shot 2022 08 14 at 6.19.48 PM

I left the bottom of the frame without the adhesive foam so I could fit the photo in as shown above. Of course, I will trim my photo to a round photo to fit. Then once I insert the photos I take, I will pop up the bottom of the frame with the foam squares.

Screen Shot 2022 08 14 at 6.19.23 PM

The only thing left was to journal.  Printable Cuttable Creatables has the cutest crayon borders called Colorful Crayons SVG Borders Set.  When I looked at them, I saw adorable journal prompts and I fell in love with them!  I ended up making six of them journals about his first day of preschool.

I used all primary colors for all my crayon pieces so I wanted something a little lighter for my background to make those pieces pop but still feel boyish.  I went with a light blue and I really loved how it turned out.

Screen Shot 2022 08 14 at 6.18.03 PM 1

If you have any questions feel free to message me on my blog at Scrapping For Tranquility or my Facebook fan page at Scrapping For Tranquility  I would be happy to answer any and all questions and help out.  No question is too silly!
