Teresa Collins Sophisticated Pillow

Photobucket
Today's pillow project was made using the new Cricut Teresa Collins Sophisticated cartridge.  I just love, love, love the word art on this cartridge.  There is a whole feature key dedicated to the word art.  I love the elegance of the Teresa Collins cartridges. Check out the images below:


I took a striped 20" x 20" pillow case as the base for this project.

First, I ironed it (again with the iron...).

Photobucket
Then, using the Cricut, I cut out the "Home Sweet Home" word art with black fabric at 14-1/2" using a 12x24 inch mat.  Use the portrait key in the regular Expression to get the image sized at 14-1/2".  I did test out how it looked using black paper before I settled on a size.

Using the same steps to cut fabric with the Cricut as shown in Wednesday's post, I then ironed it onto the pillowcase and put the pillow back in.  Viola!  All done!  Quick and easy!

Photobucket



Did you see the new Cricut cartridges released yesterday?

Melanie and I have projects up for all the new cartridges on our personal blogs, Obsessed with Scrapbooking and Courtney Lane Designs!  Be sure to check it out!

Finally, don't forget we are giving away an Ornamental Iron Cricut cartridge and TWO Martha Stewart Cricut Cake cartridges (Elegant and Seasonal Cake Art).

Leave a comment below to win the Ornamental Iron cartridge and a comment HERE to enter to win one of the two Martha Stewart Cricut Cake cartridges

Ok, now that's nice. I liked the images, but wasn't sure if I'd have a use for them.

I'm definitely convinced to give this cartridge another look.
