I've been so busy lately that I haven't even thought of updating my blog - so sorry! But I have been doing one of my favorite pastimes in the meantime, namely looking for craft items in unusual places...in one of my favorite places for this, Big Lots.
They've gotten a couple of new items in stock that I feel will work nicely with the Cricut. One is a textured faux cork material that comes on a roll, like wallpaper. It's a little thicker than vinyl or contact paper, but I think it will cut wonderfully on the Cricut. I just haven't had a chance to pull out the Cricut and try it! It says its self adhesive and repositionable, not to mention water-resistant!
The other item I found is sold as shelf liner, but is a beautiful, rich furry self-adhesive brown faux suede! I love it and I'm positive it will cut nicely...and having adhesive backing built in is a huge plus! It also says its water-resistant, and since its original purpose is shelf liner, I'm sure it is....but it IS a fabric.
You can see the pictures of both rolls below, complete with the Big Lot price tags. The textured cork roll is 18" x four FEET. The suede look-alike is 12" by 5 feet....quite a bargain for each, in my opinion! The picture is a little light - they are both a lot darker in person.
Other than that, I've been trying to get my organization going but I've been working so hard that I haven't had a chance to do much. But when I do, I'll post it here! Thanks for reading and for checking back! I'm not going to say anything yet, but I'll have some new info VERY soon!
