Laundry Room Decor with Cricut and More

I have a sweet little how-to for you today, related to this beautiful project:

Don't you want one for your house?!  This turned out even better than I expected and I just HAD to share it with you.  However, since I based this on a class from Michael's, I can't share the full instructions with you.  I do highly recommend you check for the "Paper Crafted Gift" class at your local Michael's and sign up (it's probably billed/displayed as a Christmas project).  It is well worth the $25 fee - you just need to buy a certain frame, and you can either buy your materials or bring them from home.  I can tell you that I used my Cricut Art Philosophy for the flowers and Make The Cut software for the words.

If you happen to live in the SW Chicago-land area, I teach this class at both Orland Park (on LaGrange) and Tinley Park (just off I-80) stores, and have plenty of additional ideas for it I am happy to share with you.

Now, here is the focus of my post today:

I know, we've covered these rolled roses before; that's not what we're here for today!  (In case you missed the rolled roses video, you can find it on my YouTube channel with this one.  Do you notice those pretty leaves peeking out from behind the flowers?  Would you have guessed that I cut those from the same Art Philosophy cartridge as the flowers?  Oh, and they are SO easy!  Check out this short video to see how I make them.  (And I apologize for my assistant interfering, but that's what happens around here.  And just be glad I didn't actually USE the Cricut during the video...)

Don't forget, the leaf and pretty 3-D flowers are just a few of the cuts available on the awesome Art Philosophy cartridge!  If you are interested in buying it, I would greatly appreciate your business.  In addition to the 3 stamp sets and 3 sheets of Dimensional Elements that come with the cartridge, I send you a free Petite Perks mini stamp set for purchasing.  Also, through November 30, I am offering a free "A Holiday" stamp set (or other "A" size stamp set of your choice) when you purchase Art Philosophy.  This stamp set also coordinates with cuts on the cartridge, so it's a great little addition to your collection.  You can shop here anytime, or ask me about hosting your own online gathering so you can earn Hostess Rewards (only $150 in orders gets you started) or even earn a 50% off your own cartridge (1/2 price items begin at $250 in orders).

Thanks for stopping by today!  If you like what you see, I hope you will become a follower or follow by email.  You can also subscribe to my newsletter (on the left) to find out about personal specials like this any time I offer them.


  1. I love the flowers!!!! Your laundry room sign is just too beautiful for my laundry area. I have it in the basement but it isn't fininshed off so....
    (Ok, another one of my projects not complete...LOL) Someday I hope to get it finished and then I will have to look this post up again.
