An Easter Egg Cloche | Easter Video Collab

Last month, our Creative Design Team was showing you multiple ways to love your stash. This month, we took a little break from the everyday posts to bring you some projects you can create for Easter. If you haven’t heard about our Creative Design Team, you learn more about us here.


The women on our team did an amazing job this past week! We had shaker egg cards, and a pop-up card, scrapbook layouts, and easy-to-make last-minute cards. Today, I am ending the collab with a home décor project that you can make with your Cricut.

Please don’t feel overwhelmed by this creation – it is not as difficult as it looks. In my video, I share a few ways you can add pizzazz to your Cricut cuts, but you are more than welcome to skip those parts of the project.

As you may know, I love adding lots of detail to my designs. The flowers I cut from the Daisy Meadows collection are designed to assemble flat or with a little dimension using foam tape.

I chose to go a few steps further. Not only did I cut the images from pattern paper and glitter cardstock, but I also added some beads in the center and cut a stamen using a flower thin cut die. As I said, feel free to skip this step. I am a very detail-oriented person. When I create flowers for home décor pieces, I like to make them bold, whimsical, and full of dimension.

In my video, I also share a few tips and tricks in Design Space. You will learn how I like to use templates and color sync. I also walk you through this entire project from start to finish. You will create it in Design Space with me, assemble all the pieces, and put the cloche together.

All of the Cricut cut items are placed on the base of a cloche around a flower foam square. I chose a cloche with a metal base. It matches the décor in my home and the patterns in the Daisy Meadows collection. I found the bell-shaped cloche stands at Michaels craft store, but I have also seen a few on Amazon you can purchase. I put links below in my supply list to both of these.

So.. here is a little tidbit of history for you. Do you know where the term cloche came from or what they are designed for?

Cloche /klōSH/

Bell shaped jar or bottomless glass jug used in France since the 1600’s. The name for a popular bell shaped hat of the 1920s

Knowing where something comes from or where it originated always fascinates me. As a gardener, I have seen a cloche used, but they are usually made of plastic. I didn’t realize that the glass bells we use in home décor are popular mini-greenhouses.

Alright, so now that you have gotten your history lesson for the week, let’s take a look at the crafting tutorial.

How much fun was that?! Home Décor is one of my favorite paper crafts to make – it is where I started as a Maker and where my heart will always be.

I especially love teaching others how to make creations for their home. I hope this project inspired you to try a few new things in Cricut Design Space and make something for your home this Easter.

Creating Fall Décor for the H2H Challenge

Fall is one of my favorite seasons to create for and, today, I have decided to jump way outside the box and create a home décor piece for you.  One of our challenges this month at Heart2Heart is a Fall Fun challenge, and what is more fun than creating a project that you can display in your home. 

This challenge ends in just a few days, so make sure to stop by and share your fall projects with us before September 30th.  


Like I said, I chose to make something a little different that I normally do for this design team.  Home Décor is one of my favorites to create and I truly enjoy sharing with others how to make their own decorations.  For this round, I decided to pull out my Cricut and HTV (iron-on) vinyl to create a little tutorial for you. 

Before we jump to the video, I want to show you a few details on this project.  It is a very simple project you can make on your Cricut.  I started out with one 1″ x 2″ slats of wood that my husband painted and sanded for me.  If you are not handy, or don’t have a handy hubby, you can purchase a sign like this one on amazon.

After the wood was finished, I created the design in Cricut Design Space then cut the letters from Black HTV (or iron-on vinyl). When you are using this type of vinyl on your design, always make sure to “mirror” your image and place the shiny side down on your mat.  

One the vinyl was cut, I was able to weed the images and iron the letters onto the wood using my Easy Press Mini.  “Weeding” is very easy to do. It involves removing the excess material from the backing sheet so that your image is ready to adhere to the project. 

I used the Cricut Heat Guide to determine my temperature setting and got to work adhering all the vinyl to the wood slats.  Once that was complete, I began assembling the flowers and leaves.  

I used images from the new Bloom with Grace Cricut collection. There are quite a few unique sunflower images in this collection and it was hard to pick just one.  Those little grid patterns spoke to me and so did those stitched leaves, so I chose to add them to my design and cut them out from Espresso, Sundance, and Copper Order paper. 

For those of you who would like to create one of these projects for your home, I have created a simple to follow Cricut tutorial for you.  In the video, I show you how to make the design in Cricut Design Space, how to adhere the HTV (iron-on), and how to assemble all the pieces for the sign. 

Once you have completed the project, I would love for you to share it with me.  I always love seeing how something I made inspired others. 

You will need to purchased the Bloom with Grace collection if you plan on using the same images I did. This collection is only available through my affiliate link and is not available in Access. 

I hope you were inspired by this project I created for the Heart2Heart Fall Fun challenge and you were encouraged to add one of your own creations to the challenge. 

Make sure to stop by the blog each week for a new challenge. Our Design Teams always have some amazing projects to share and there are always creations to inspire you.

Valentine Balloon Treat Basket Design Space File Give Away

I have missed you all so much, that I decided to host a Valentine Give-Away.  These past few weeks I have been battling the flu and have missed being able to create in my Craft Space.  I am so grateful to all of you who sent well wishes as I have been recovering. Today, I have decided that, in lieu of a new creation (which I don’t have),  I will be giving away a Free Cricut® Design Space File of my Valentine Hot Air Balloon Treat Basket to FIVE people. 

These fun hot air balloons we inspired by an adorable creation I found while looking though some VERY OLD paper crafting magazines and I couldn’t wait to figure out how to recreate them in Design Space.®  Not only will I be giving away the Design Space© file I made, these five people will also receive the process video showing how to assemble these delightful Valentine Hot Air Balloons! 


How Do I Enter the Drawing?


You will need to own the images I used to create each one of these Valentine’s Day Hot Air Balloons.  Most of these are images I manipulated from the Close to My Heart Artiste collection and a few are from images that are available with the Cricut© Access Subscription.   These adorable balloons were created as Valentine gifts with the Oh My Heart paper and Stickers, but, if you are wanting a balloon decoration year-round, you can make one like I did for my Craft Space. 

On this delightful little piece of art, I used the Urban papers and sticker pack. I adore the vintage, steam-punk, distressed look of Urban and it matches perfectly with the other decor items in my Craft Space. Unfortunately, this paper pack is only available through January 31st, so, if you enjoy these designs, you will need to purchase this pack soon.

I hope that you are well, have avoided getting this nasty illness going around, and that you are excited to win one of the Cricut® Design Space Files.  I am excited to get back into my Craft Space and start sharing some new creations with you.
