Oh What New Things I Have.

Hello my crafty friends,

Today I am sharing t-shirts I made with my two new machines.

I have been researching heat press machines and a new die-cutting machine.  Proworld had a good deal during the Memorial Day weekend, in which you buy a specific amount and get a discount on the heat press machine so I jumped on it.  I was intimidated by the heat press  machine, however after completing my first t-shirt job I asked myself why I did not buy it sooner. 

I have been a loyal cricut customer for a long time.  When the company stops supporting non-cricut software it limited my options to design, I started  research on various die-cutting machines.  I gave my husband a wish list for my birthday/Mother’s Day gift. I was very surprised to receive this in the mail Wednesday. 
Even more surprised because I just ordered the Silhoutte Cameo over the holiday weekend.  The Cameo is currently on back-order until the end of June, I will probably cancel that order. 

The KNK-Zing die-cutting machine is the total opposite of the cricut and cutting layout so now I have to retrain my brain..lol.  Making these t-shirts was my first project using both machines.  It is definitely a new learning curve but I absolutely love the way it cuts the vinyl. 
Here are Dr. Seuss’s Thing 1-Thing 6 t-shirts I made for my co-worker.

I can not wait to try other materials on the KNK Zing.  I am planning to keep my Expression 2 to have more options.  Now on to my vacation t-shirts and reorganizing my scrap office again.

I hope you enjoyed, thank you for stopping by,

  3. Netta those t-shirts are amazing! You did a great job. TFS I have a new toy on my wish list too it's called a button machine maker. People usually use them for project life. They are flat back buttons which can be used on cards,layouts or anything.

  8. Netta, you are a woman after my own heart. I have been wanting a heat press machine for years. I use to make company shirts for my husband's business and I hand-ironed all of the transfers, it was work lol. Your shirts are too cute! What brand of heat transfer vinyl did you use? I also need to channel your mojo, I have a couple of diaper cake orders to fill!
