Heat Press

People!  I am obsessed with my Heat Press.  I made these Decorative Towels and Koozies with ease using my Heat Press.  For anyone that has a strong “Iron-On” obsession, using a heat press for your HTV (heat transfer vinyl) changes the game.

Have you ever ironed on an appliqué or cut some cute vinyl with your Cricut, applied it to a bag or shirt, then after you have washed the item the sides peel up?  We’ve all been there, but it really grated on my nerves to spend time, money and effort and not really get the professional finish that I wanted.

I have done a ton of research on heat presses and EVERYONE knows that I am a Cricut lover, but the Cricut press just wasn’t going to do it for me.  I wanted a surface at least capable of 12×12 images, and the Cricut press is much smaller than that.  You would have to move the press around your image and not to mention you still have to apply pressure physically, just like an iron.  I wasn’t about to buy a 140.00 iron and still not get the quality that I was looking for.

Fancier Studio’s

The specific heat press that I chose was by Fancier Studio’s it measures in at 15×15.  You can adjust the pressure clamp( it is super pressurized) and it locks when you pull it down.  It is also digital, which makes it easy to set your temperature and timer setting… which I love!!!!  I have produced perfect results every time and could not be more happy with my purchase.

This heat press actually completely melds the HTV to your project.  The finished image resembles ink once it has been heat pressed onto your surface.

I’ve been looking for reasons to use it and a few things that I came up with this weekend are these adorable Decorative Towels that you see everywhere!  Then I was just perusing on Amazon and out stumbled these lonely Koozie blanks.  I thought, huh, I think my heat press needs these in her life so this was my creative inspiration for the weekend.

VINYL

Since my Blog is brand new I really want to pack in some content in a  few posts to give readers ideas on what to expect from upcoming posts.  If you have any questions on how any of these projects were made please reach out to me.  The step by step is omitted on these following projects.

 

TEXAS!  This is a super simple design that looks really nice and literally took me less than 5 minutes.  I did upload this image from the internet from the state of Texas website then I created this solid image in design space from Cricut.com.  It turned out exactly the way I wanted it to and I will be posting a How-To video in the near future on how to use your own images with the Cricut.

This next image is 2 of my absolute favorite mugs that I made.   I actually purchased these cut files online through the design space at Cricut.com.  They were adorable and I needed these in my life.  This is standard vinyl that I used and usually you can get around using transfer tape to add vinyl to images however I would not recommend that with this project.

Since we are leaning toward a coffee theme my last vinyl image will be for the Keurig.  This was just basic font from the Cricut design space which I layered in order to make the saying fit down the inside wall of my Keurig.
