Sunset HTV T-Shirt

Sunday, March 11, 2018


Good Morning Darlings! Today is all about HTV and Happy Crafters kindness to join the group of Craft & Create Bloggers on the challenge this month providing us all with HTV and a T-shirt to work our magic. Thank you Happy Crafters! You truly made this crafter happy along with many more. 
As you can see I will be sharing my latest T-shirt design using a blue heather shirt, Matte Gold and Rose Gold HTV all from Happy Crafters. Make sure you read all the way to the bottom of this post because Happy Crafters is holding a Giveaway to make you Happy too. You must enter to win!!!!

You will love today's challenge since the bloggers have truly been sharing their "A game" with you each month and this one is absolutely amazing.

You can go straight to this link to see the Cricut Design Space images I used and made to make your own Lake T-shirt of your desire. Just swap the name of the lake and you are done.

As you see above the shiny side of the vinyl always faces away from you when cutting.

The Light Pad from Cricut is a true time saver. This was a Christmas present. I love presents don't you?This was works incredibly well as a time saver as well as designing small details.

When your T-shirt design is ready always remember to remove any wrinkles as well as pre warm your fabric. This will help insure the best adhesion.

This is how the shirt looks right before I set the timer then pressed with the easy press from Cricut. My friends this makes HTV so easy with a set it and go process. Simply match your material with your vinyl and the Easy Press guide will show you what settings to use.

This T-shirt makes me so happy when I wear it because no matter where I am a little bit of my Happy Place is with me. My favorite part of day is when the sun glistens rose and gold at sunset on the lake in front of our home. It melts all the worries away only conjuring up all's right with the world thoughts. Ahhh! I hope you have a Happy Place in your Life! Please tell me where it is in the comments.

Love your lake shirt! The blue shirt is so pretty. I was wondering how helpful the bright pad was, I think I need one. I find HTV very tricky to weed and to be able to see the design. Pinning!

Wow! What a beautiful design! I'm also really impressed with your use of two different HTVs. I'm terrified to try it because I am scared I'll scorch the first layer. Oh and that light board is on my wish list. Weeding is zero fun, lol.
