Happy Independence Day!!
My husband and I have some dear friends who are love cooking almost as much as they love one another. They both spend a lot of time in the kitchen cooking delicious pizza and other tasty food, as well as making their own spice rub and a line of BBQ sauces. Last year, the husband started hand-making knives to sell and to use in his kitchen. He’s a chef by day, and I believe he cooks or co-cooks some of the family meals at home during the week. When we visited them last year, I thought it would be fun to bring them a house-warming gift for the room they spend lots of time in.
When I came across a digital image that said, “SLICE TRIM CUT DICE CHOP OUCH” and had a knife shape below the stacked words, I instantly thought of my friend! I bought the Loveday “Slice” digital image and went to work. I used black and red vinyl with my Cricut Expression machine and applied the cut shapes to an 8″ x 10″ canvas. I hand-cut a little blood drop to drip off the knife and adhered that tiny piece of vinyl to the canvas before applying a few layers of Mode Podge sealant.
I am happy with how it turned out, and I was pleased that it went with my friends’ red, black and white kitchen. Using the Cricut Expression or Cricut Explore machines saves so much time on the fun, custom projects I create.Pin It
