It is back to school time and that means personalizing your goods. Boring is out and adding the handmade touch is in. For my personalization I choose to YUDU a hot pink blank laptop bag. I used the old school typewriter from the Heritage cartridge and printed it twice on the bag. I also used a charm label from the Heritage cartridge to screen print a little extra bling on a chain.

Thinking of trying to fit in one more road trip in before the end of summer? Before you head off, make this fun Car Technology Storage bag. You gotta have somewhere to put your ipod cord, cell phone charger, GPS and emergency power monkey. I used the Cricut cartridge called Summer Vacation to cut the central theme pieces of the truck and camper out of black paper to burn onto a YUDU screen. I used the YUDU to print the design onto a black handled bag that I picked up at a thrift store. I cut Aqua felt to the shape of the handle and used rivets and E-6000 to attach it. For the zipper pull I created a charm out of shrink plastic. Enjoy making your own travel goodies this week and Happy Crafting xoxo LL
I found this great Michael Graves Silverware Tray Organizer at a thrift store for $2. I took out the dividers and it is so so perfect for storing my collection of Washi Tapes. Heart Happy – LOVE!
Some of the fun I will get to have this summer will happen when my new Cricut Cake arrives in just a few short weeks. In preparation for all the baking fun I’ll be having I decided to transform part of my pantry into a baking studio. I figured it needed some organizational attention anyway so why not make it a fun project!
One thing that came out of this plan was a hunt for hot pink wood grain oil cloth. Well guess what it does not yet exist. Sad, I still couldn’t let go so I found hot pink wood grain fabric and did a little research on how to make my own oil cloth. By miracle of miracles there is a product on the market to assist with this! It is called Heat-N-Bond Iron On Vinyl Protection.

For the Baking Studio I used wooden drawer systems from IKEA to put all the small stuff it. I created labels for every drawer by cutting chalkboard oil cloth and stitching it to some of the wood grain fabric then I wrote the contents of each drawer on each label in white chalk.
My Kitchen Aid Mixer is in place, as is my tool caddy with tips and colors. Now I just need my Cricut Cake to arrive and I’ll be baking and decorating like mad. Maybe while I wait I’ll bake some regular old cupcakes.
Enjoy a quick tour of the Lovely Lula Studio. This category will offer all things organization for the crafter.
