Box Up the Week with Chibitronics

Happy Friday everyone!  And welcome to the last day I will bore you with projects I made for Chibitronics with the Rockin and Rollin SVG kit from SVGCuts and my Cricut.  lol

This box was so cute and simple to make.  Unfortunately, I can't seem to find the photos of the circuits so I will just have to tell you how I did it.  If you have been following along this week, you have seen how easy it is to use the copper tape to create a circuit.  For this project I simply added my lights under neath the dice, as well as along the record (you can see that from the photos).  I poked holes through the top layer and into the box so that I would have access to my battery.  So simple to do.  There are actually two separate circuits running.  One under the dice, the other across the top of the box.

Well, that is all the fun projects I have to share from CHA and Chibitronics.  I hope I have been able to inspire you to create using LED lights from Chibitronics.

A Jukebox that Lights up With Chibitronics

Hello Again!!!  More today from the Chibitronics booth at CHA featuring the projects I made using the SVGCuts Rockin and Rollin SVG Kit and my Cricut.

Today I wanted to share with you one of my absolute favorite projects I made for the booth.  This little light up Jukebox.
To create the box I used lots of Core'dinations papers.  I love the color core and how it reacts when embossed.  Almost like real wood on my box, yeah?  And, check out the metallic papers also from Core'dinations oh and the colored vellum.  I love the variety of papers the Core'dinations offers.
From there, I created my circuits adding light on the back panel of the 3D project where they would best shine through to the front.
Continuing the circuits onto the back of the project so as to be able to switch out the battery.
Love the way the projects lights up.  So super fun.

Records that Shine with Chibitronics and SVGCuts

Hey everyone!  Yep, I'm back!  Sharing a couple of more cards I made using the Rockin and Rolling SVG kit from SVGCuts and Chibitronics.

The first card is a Party card with multi colored lights.  I poked small holes in the top "record" layer of my card to add a space for the lights to shine through.

 From there, I marked circles onto the background layer and created my circuit.  This time I chose to use different colored lights to add more color to the black background.  So fun.  Much like in the Car Card from yesterday, I only attached the top layers at the top so that the battery was easily replaceable.
The next record card I made used the same basic idea.

After cutting all the layers with my Cricut, I poked holes in the top layer where I wanted the lights to go, and marked them on the lower layer.  The lights were a bit close, so I supplemented a few of the lights with small rhinestones.  Again, only attaching the final layer at the top so that the battery could easily be replaced.

How cute are these fun cards?  And creating the light up circuits are so quick and easy.

Making CHA Headlights Shine with Chibitronics and SVGCuts

Hey Everyone!  Long time no see.  lol   Well, I warned you.  I have actually not been doing much crafting at all.  Instead I have been in a massive cleaning and organizing mode.  Feels so good.

I did however promise Chibitronics to share some of the projects I had made for them from CHA.  So, this week I will be sharing something every day.   These projects were made using the Rockin and Rollin SVG kit from SVGCuts.  Chibitronics knew they were going into CHA with a diner theme and the colors they wanted to sue, so these projects were just perfect.  So quick and easy to create with the files from SVGCuts and my Cricut.

When I cut the top layer for the card, the background I created my circuit so that the car headlights would light.  The lights and battery are thin and flat enough that I was able to layer the rest of the pieces on top without any added bulk.
 I actually only glued the teal layer at the top so that I could remove or change the battery as needed.

Bits of stickles and bling finished off my project which was so fun to create and I hear was quite popular at the show.

Tinkerbell Fairy Light and Card

Hey everyone...well, I warned you that I wouldn't be around as much.  lol  But here I am today to share with you a tutorial for the Disney Pixar Blog Hop.

Welcome to the Disney Pixar Blog Hop!

Disney and crafting are a magical combination, and we are so happy you joined us to day for this blog hop.  Some of the crafters participating in this event have been doing this together since 2011!  Over the years the hop has grown but one thing has always stayed the same . . . amazing crafting projects that feature your favorite characters from Disney and Pixar movies.

For 2016 we are going to attempt to have a hop every other month for the entire year . . . February, April, June, August, October and December.  If you are on Facebook you can like the group page so that you can be the first to learn about each upcoming event.  Just click HERE to go the the Facebook page.

To make sure you don't miss any of the fun, be sure to start at Shawn's blog to see all of the projects.  Just click HERE to head over to her blog and then follow the hop line up at the bottom of the post to see everyone's projects.

Tinkerbell Fairy Light

My little niece, like many girls her age, is obsessed with few things in life, the first, Frozen, and the other, Tinkerbell.  Well, she has been scared of the dark lately so I decided to help her out with this little night light.

Supplies Needed:

  • Mason Jar
  • Mod Podge
  • Epson Salts
  • Battery Operated Tea Light
  • Tinkerbell Sticker (I created my own with Cricut)
  • Foam Adhesive
  • Assorted embellishments for top

Step 1:  Coat mason jar with a thin layer of Epson Salts.  You can tint your Epson Salts with a bit of food coloring if you like...I used a bit of red to make pink.  For extra hold, you can spray a bit of poly sealer over the Epson salts.
Step 2:  Create Tinkerbell sticker image.  I used the Print & Cut feature on my Cricut machine to create the sticker, but if you have a favorite sticker, feel free to use it.

Step 3:  Attach Tinkerbell sticker to tea light using foam adhesive.

Step 4:  Embellish Jar.  I used some small flowers and a bead spray to decorate the top of my mason jar, but feel free to use whatever you have handy.

Super quick and easy.  Definitely something you can make in an evening.  I think my niece and her friends may even choose to make them as a craft for her upcoming birthday party.

Of course the light had to come with a card.  And what is more fun than a shaker card.

Tinkerbell Shaker Card

Supplies Needed:
  • Card Blank (I used a chalkboard card from Core'dinations)
  • Patterned Papers
  • Sizzix Die
  • Foam Tape
  • Clear Acrylic
  • Sequins and Small Beads
  • Embellishments

Step 1:  Cut hole in center of cardstock to create window for shaker.  I love these thinlet dies from Sizzix when used with the magnetic plate.  This combination allows me to place my window exactly where I want.
Step 2:  Add acrylic to the inside of the window and surround window with foam tape.  You want to make sure and not have any holes that your sequins can fall out.  Looking for acrylic?  Try old packaging.
Step 3:  Fill with window with sequins and small beads.
Step 4:  Attach to cardstock base.

Step 5:  Embellish front of the card as desired.
