You Won't Strike Out with These Father's Day Gifts

For the dad who loves sports, here's a fun way to customize baseballs with sayings or photos printed on Craft Attitude film. This application works great on new baseballs or used ones for a more antique look. 

Product steps:

  1. Print your image to size. It the image contains words, print it in reverse
  2. Apply plenty of glue with a gluestick to the ball and rub it in
  3. Place your image print side down and apply to the glue on the ball (you will need to pull the edges of the film since it’s a curved surface)
  4. Trim with a cutting knife
  5. Rub out any wrinkles

If you'd like to give Dad the ultimate compliment, download this free printable. You can add a child's name before printing in referse. 


You can use the same process to decorate a clipboard or nearly any other surface.

How to Get Photos onto Metal

To create a cool photo-on-metal look, Julie McGuffee printed a photo onto Craft Attitude film with her inkjet printer. Here are a few of her tips:

1. Print photo onto Craft Attitude film. I chose to use grayscale mode for mine and selected a photo with a light background so the metal would show through. Once printed and removed from the carrier sheet, Craft Attitude film will take on the texture of any surface, and a lighter background will enhance that effect even more. If you want to include lettering in the photo that you're going to print, be sure to set the printer to reverse, so when you adhere the photo print side down, it will read properly.

2. Use a glue stick to adhere the photo to the metal board, print side down.

3. Create more dimension with embellishments or chipboard letters.

Mixed Media Monday: Valentine's Chocolate Box

We love this romantic idea from Anita Houston, made from a recycled cigar box.

1. I created a master board I loved that I can use over and over again. Craft Attitude let's me do that. How to create your master board:

2. You can scan or take a photo of your master board. I took the clearest photo I could.

3. I printed my master board digital image out on Craft Attitude using reverse image mode; as many prints as I wanted to use for lots of projects.

4. I lined the inside of the cigar box with the Craft Attitude print and edged with tissue tape.

5. I wanted texture on the outside of the box, so I dry embossed Tim's Swirls Texture Fade from Sizzix. I silver foil peeking through was wonderful. I love that Craft Attitude is embossable. 

6. I adhered the embossed Craft Attitude to the box, and lined it with Tissue Tape.

7. I used more of the Craft Attitude to make roses! I adhered it to Wendy Vecchi's Clearly For Art, and then die cut it with the 3D Flowers Bigz Die. I shaped them with my heat tool. These were so addicting! I made so many roses and rosettes. I LOVE this stuff!

8. I added wooden feet, lace and embellishments!

Mixed Media Monday: Valentine's Inspiration

Looking for some inspiration for your Valentine's cards? Our Anne Grbic created this adorable piece using Craft Attitude, doilies, red paper and gold textured paper, ribbon and some flowers.

She printed the fairy, a free printable from TheGraphicsFairy.com, and all the words including "LOVE" on the plastic heart on Craft Attitude and glued them to the different surfaces. She punched the little hearts from gold and red foil paper and glued them down.  The gold rays are recycled from an old Christmas decoration.

How to Make Those Cool Shoes from the CHA Show

The Craft Attitude shoes were such a big hit at the Craft & Hobby Mega Show this past weekend that we thought we'd post a quick how-to tutorial.

Here's how Andrea Atwater created these one-of-a-kind shoe showstoppers:

1) Size and print your image to fit the area you would like on the shoe area. (reverse print if there is any text)

2) Print in best quality / glossy photo preference.

3) Apply glue to the area on the shoe and rub it in the canvas generously but without clumps.

4) Flip the image and apply over the glue on the shoe and rub the film. You will be able to pull up and reposition the image on canvas, but you will need to do it quickly so the bright colors don't stain on the shoe.

5) Trim the area around the image with a cutting tool. Don't worry about cutting the shoe. The film is very thin and you only need light pressure to cut. TIP: Use a sharp knife so there is no tearing.

6) Rub the film in again for a nice grab on to the shoe. The film will dry tighter. 

Materials Needed:

- Pair of light colored shoes. I used bright yellow Vans but a white or cream pair would be fine also. The film is clear, so the image need to show through.

Mixed Media Monday: Digital Collage

Craft Attitude pro Anne Grbic tells us how she made this cool, modern collage:

I created my own digital collage, printed it on Craft Attitude, then glued it and wrapped it around the wood wall panel to make this décor piece. 

BEFORE

  

AFTER

 

I layered a separate printed piano piece on the bottom right. I applied Liquitex gloss varnish over the whole thing, then embellished with alcohol inks and. I wrapped the ribbon around for an interesting effect – the black and white representing piano keys. I then glued down a piece of cardstock on the back.

Materials Used:

Start with your own digital collage or favorite image sized to 8-by-8 inches. Go here for a great tutorial from Digital Arts on how to create your own collage.

  • Wood wall panel for base.
  • Craft Attitude to print image.
  • PVA glue stick to wrap and glue print to wood.
  • Liquitex gloss varnish to give a sheen to surface.
  • Tim Holtz Adirondack Alcohol inks to dab some colors over the surface. Craft Attitude is compatible with stamps and inks to embellish the surface.
  • Ribbon, if desired
  • Paper back, if desired.
Holiday Portrait: Craft Attitude on Linen

To create a authentic portrait look on linen, try printing a photograph on Craft Attitude film, then adhere it to linen canvas. As you can see below, the film is a translucent skin that becomes a part of whatever you adhere it to. 

    

Craft Attitude will take on the texture of textured, metallic, pattern or handmade paper, canvas, fabric, metal, rocks, stones, tile, wood, glass, bricks, shoes, candles and more.

What have you created with Craft Attitude film? We'd love to see!
