DIY Canvas Tote Bags For Teachers With Cutting File

The Cut Shoppe

Hello everyone… Cannot you believe that this School year reaches its end? For sure, we are so totally all the teachers for all what they have done to help our children to grow. For them, I made these canvas tote bags that filled with gifts for our beloved teachers!

I dressed up these three canvas tote bags with glitter heat transfer vinyls (HTV) that I cut them with cutting files from The Cut ShoppeSchool RulesYou’ve Been SchooledAll Caps AlphaFriends ForeverWords To Live By.

Creating these canvas tote bags is super fun. I love the options what I can do with digital cutting files on projects I want to create. I am sharing the full detail how I created them over The Cut Shoppe Blog today.

I hope today’s projects give you some inspiration to try something new with The Cut Shoppe cutting files! Thank you so very much for stopping by today. Have a fabulous day!

Mother’s Day Card and Gift Bag

Joy Clair

Hello everyone… Mother’s Day is a special day when we can celebrate a special MOM in our lives. It is one of my favorite days! I like making handmade card and gift and I have a Mother’s Day Card and Gift Bag to share with you today.

Mother’s Day Card and Gift Bag with Joy Clair clear stamps, VersaFine Clair Ink Pads, and Leisure Arts Watercolor Colored Pencils

I am joining the Joy Clair team for their Special Mother’s Day Event where the design team sharing their projects for moms.

I created a matching card and gift bag with Joy Clair clear stamps, VersaFine Clair Ink Pads, and Leisure Arts Watercolor Colored Pencils. They are easy to make for sure…You can make these for your special Mom/Grandma or even girl friends to show them some love through handmade gifts.

So… Let’s get started!

Mother’s Day Card and Gift Bag with Joy Clair clear stamps, VersaFine Clair Ink Pads, and Leisure Arts Watercolor Colored Pencils

First, let’s make the card. It is a clean and simple card with stamping and watercoloring.

I choose one corner of the watercolor paper to stamped the flower from Bandana Bits stamp set with VersaFine Clair Charming Pink ink pad. It is a pigment ink, very juicy! So, before coloring I dried the stamped images with Craft Heater.

After that, I colored all the flowers with the Leisure Arts Watercolor Colored Pencils at the middle of the flower, and then using watercolor brush with some water, I pulled the pigment to color all the petals. You can see, with this way, you can get the ombre look on the flowers. I dried them with Craft Heater, too.

And then I added the some watercolor splatters on the card by flicking the pigment directly from the pencil with watercolor brush. And dried it again with craft heater… Oh  I tell you… I am loving this new Watercolor Pencils!

I trimmed this watercolored panel to 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ and added it on a white card with dries-clear adhesive glue.

Next step is stamping the sentiment. I arranged the sentiment phrases from Hello Sentiments stamp set on the card, and I picked them up with the Mini MISTI lid and stamped it with VersaFine Nocturne ink pad. Love the bold sentiment I get from couple stamping.

I finished the card with some pink sequins on it.

For the matching bag, it is simple. I used mini muslin bag for this. Make sure you have a piece of cardstock or cardboard inserted inside the bag to prevent the ink get transferred to the other side of the bag.

I put the bag on a fun foam that I used as stamping pad. Then I stamped the flowers from Bandana Bits stamp set with VersaFine Charming Pink on it. Pigment inks works well on fabric, too!

DIY Painted Wood Burning Sign With Digital Stamp

Graciellie Design

DIY Painted Wood Burning Sign With Digital Stamp

Hello everyone… Spring is coming soon in 3 weeks… I hope… 😀 Today I have a tutorial how to create a Painted Wood Burning Sign using digital stamp set, freezer paper, and inkjet printer. I hope you all can enjoy this post!

The digital stamp I used today is the Graciellie Design – Happy Moments, the one of the new digital stamps at Gracie’s Etsy shop. Working with digital images give you some options to resize the images to meet your needs for your projects.

I am super happy to find out that I can transfer the image printed with inkjet printer with freezer paper! Thankful for those crafty people on YouTube 😀

So, I open the flowers in jar image from the Happy Moments stamp set with my Silhouette Studio Designer Edition. I resized it to fit my medium size Walnut Hollow wood slice.

I cut out a piece of freezer paper into 8.5″ x 11″ (letter size paper) and put it in the paper trey on my printer. Some image you need to reverse before printing, but this one, I can go with both reverse or as is. I printed the the image on the shine side of the paper.

You need to be very careful not to touch the printed image because it is wet.

DIY Painted Wood Burning Sign With Digital Stamp

You can plug the wood-burning tool now to pre-heat it while getting the image transfer to the wood.

I trimmed the paper smaller with scissors. I taped the image on the wood. Centered the image before you really put it on the wood.

The next step is transferring the image. You need a big spool or wooden spatula. Using the back of the wooden spoon, gently rub over the image. By lifting up the paper, you check underneath the paper to see if the image get transfered all or not yet. If the image not all transfered yet, you put the paper back, tape it, and rub again with the spoon.

Once you are happy with the image, you can start trace the transfer imaged with the tool. I like to use the fine point when tracing images on wood.

When the tracing is done, you can leave it as wood-buring sign or you can continue to paint it with acrylic paints like I did on mine 🙂

DIY Painted Wood Burning Sign With Digital Stamp

To paint this wood, I used FolkArt Multi-Surface Acrylic Paints, Matte Gel Medium, Fine Detail Paint Brush, and Foam brush.

First, I painted the flowers and jar. Then, I painted the background with teal color and then when the first layer is dry, I painted again with the white.

Last step, I traced the image again with my wood-burning tool on every spot that got some paint, just to make sure the burned lines look good 🙂

The sign is done. I hope you all can enjoy and be inspired to create with digital stamps! Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!
