What is the Cricut EasyPress?

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today to share with you a brand new toy that I discovered they other day.  The new Cricut EasyPress.  What is the Cricut EasyPress you ask?  Well let me tell you.

Lets take a look at it:

Shop new arrivals from Cricut!
The Cricut EasyPress is the best heat press to use when applying an iron-on to different materials!!

Here’s the scoop:

  • You can set the temperature and timer for different materials.
  • The highest temperature is 350°F (180°C).
  • It comes with a reference guide for the different materials.
  • The plate is 9 x 9 inch, which is great for large or layered iron-on projects.
  • The flat plate allow you to add even heat thought the design.
  • No press cloth need for most materials.
  • Super simple and easy to use.
  • Once your setting are set, the machine beeps to let you know its ready.
  • It also beeps to let you know when your done.
  • Its lightweight and portable.
  • It’s a great addition to have with your cutting machine.
  • It comes with a resting base.
  • It has an auto-shutoff feature.

Totally awesome tool with great features.  When I saw this tool, I knew I wanted to give it a try.  I have so many different types of vinyl in my house from different craft fairs, that I figured I could try it.

Lets take a look at what I created:

Cricut EasyPress

I used the Cricut EasyPress with Cricut Gold Iron-on Foil to create this t-shirt for my crew to wear while we are at Creativation this coming January.

I set the machine to 295°F (145°C) for 35 sec.  The word is pretty long so I press twice paying attention to where the press landed so that I wasn’t over pressing any particular part of the foil.

It took me 70 secs total to set this word on this shirt with no worries of the foil not setting.

I ended up creating 5 shirts in less then 30 minutes from start to finish.

I have to say, I’m super happy with my purchase. Now I can’t wait to create more things using vinyl. I hope to have a video up soon.

Would you like to try the Cricut EasyPress?  I highly suggest it!

You can get your Cricut EasyPress here and Gold Iron-on Foil here.

{Clean and Simple} – Cake

Hello everyone!!!  It’s CASology Tuesday!!  We are back with another Clean and Simple Cue Card just for you!!

This week’s cue card:

Take a look at my card:

Right at Home Sweet Birthday Stamp set

For this card, I wanted a fun card shape since the cue card is cake.  So I used Pretty Pink Posh Scallop Circle Tag die to cut out two pieces of watercolor paper.

Scoring the second die at the top of the tag and adding adhesive will allow you to create a card.

Stamp the the cake image from Right At Home Sweet Birthday on the front and the sentiment inside the card using Colorbox Jet Black Ink.

I used Jane Davenport Mermaid Markers to watercolor in the image.
