EasyPress 2 Heats Things up with Cricut

Hello Darlin! This week Cricut provided me with a new EasyPress 2 Medium (9X9) to create a project within Design Space using their StrongBond Iron-on. One of my favorite ways to decorate during the colder months is snowflakes. Lets see how easy peasy this project will be for you to recreate.

Since the EasyPress 2 is heating up even faster than ever it had me thinking the opposite direction. Winter! My favorite gift or decor item for Winter is snowflakes or snowmen. These delicate one of a kind gems glisten through the sky making even the gloomiest of day sparkle. The snowflake pillow project material and directions are located here in Design Space

While using Design Space from Cricut take it a step further to check your design by using the patterns for backgrounds even if you're not printing. Look at the realistic image that was created to assure your choices during the process. 

Anna Griffith designed a beautiful snowflake layered card, a perfect way to show you how easy it was to adapt a Design Space project into a different project. With her design I used one layer sliced off the card, deleted the score line and changed the size into a square.  Strongbond Iron-0n metallic is a the perfect way to add decor to a pillow.  It is guaranteed for 50 washings when used as directed.

Cricut produced a new EasyPress 2 which heats up faster with the new ceramic coated plate creating even heat for perfect projects. Speaking of surface the holder has a new easy to rest shape and I haven't even shared the best part yet. The EasyPress 2 comes in three sizes, S (6 X 7 ), M (9X 9), L (12 X 10). It has a USB port for easy updating, a sweet raspberry color, and the temperature raises up to 400 F. 

Come back each month for a new pillow cover design totalling 12 for the year. Storing 12 pillow covers is far easier than storing 12 different pillows. Keep reading to see what design is used for the next month. Also watch for a tutorial for easy to sew pillow covers out of your favorite fabrics, then you will be able to create right along with me. Please tag me on Instagram so when you create your pillow cover I will head over to comment on your project. Fly on over to follow Dragonfly & Lily Pads FaceBook Page where I will feature your pillows with credit to you.

I hope you enjoy the project please Pin, Pin, Pin!

The best part of this monthly post is all designs will be linked to the Cricut Design Space for easy access to create the project yourself. Join me in October for the next pillow cover creation.
