How to Sublimate a Wristlet Keychain

This just might be one of the easiest sublimation projects I’ve made so far. These are subilmation keychain/ wristlets/lanyards. They are quick, easy and very affordable to make. Imagine your favorite team, sport, logo, word of the year, quote, photo, pattern or just about anything you can dream up printed on a keychain/lanyard that can be attached to a book bag, a small purse, keys, or just to add a little flair to something special.

As you can see above, you can make both sides similar or totally different. I love how the leopard lanyard turned out.

Hint: If you don’t have a sublimation printer, you can use Cricut Infusible Ink on the wristlet blanks. You can use code MAKER10 on orders $50 or more and save 10% plus get free shipping (does not apply to machines).

The Sawgrass SG500 sublimation printer is one of my favorite 2020 purchases. I’ve had so much fun making personalized pieces for holidays, birthdays and heck, just for plain ‘ole fun! I just added the SG500’s big brother. the SG1000 to my studio giving me even more ways to implement sublimation printing into my creative space.

I made a video to show you how I created the wristlets. Though, by now, you probably understand how sublimation works. If you’d like to watch, there just might be a giveaway! You will have to watch to find out how to enter to win.

Customized Apple Watch Band

It’s a week before Christmas! Can you even believe it? I’ve got a quick and easy gift idea for your Apple Watch wearing friends. How about a totally customized watch band? I made this one in about ten minutes using my Sublimation Printer and these watch band blanks. I know I say it everytime, but wouldn’t this be a great stocking stuffer, too!

I had so many ideas running through my head. Favorite sports team, logo, leopard, buffalo plaid, holiday, team/school colors, holiday themes and so many more! Here are just a few “mock ups” I made.

What would you put on your watch band? Leave me a comment and let me know.

Here is a tutorial for this quick and easy project:

How to Subimate a Plushie

Hello Teddy Bear Cuteness! Ace and Evie are going to go nuts over these Teddy Bear Plushies. First of all, they are plushies and second of all, they have their favorite characters on them. I bet you can guess who likes each one, but I can almost guarantee they will still fuss over them.

These plushies with sublimatable T-shirts are from JP Plus. You can get them here. They also have a rabbit, dog and an elephant. I purchased two of the the bears just to keep the arguing to a minimum (I know some of you can relate). Use code 9PSR5 and get 15% off your order (be sure and add the shirts to your order – they don’t come with the plushie).

As always I used my Sawgrass SG500 Subimation Printer and my cute pink heat press. Heat presses don’t have to be an eyesore in the middle of your creative space.

I put together a quick video to show you just how easy they are to customize. Leave me a comment and let me know what you will put on your plushies. Will you get the Bunny, Dog, Elephant or Bear?

How to Sublimate a Glass Cutting Board

Are you looking for gift ideas for the holidays? I’ve got one that I hope you’re going to love!

I am back with another Sublimation tutorial. Today, we are making glass cutting boards. I found these to be so fun. I can think of a ton of ways to utilize this fun project. How about putting your favorite team logo and then using it as a cheese/serving tray at your next football gathering? Photos, of course, make great gifts for grandparents as well as moms and dads. Another fun idea would be to add your favorite family recipe and then give them to various family members. You could also add a favorite quote, holiday meme, favorite characters, movie scenes, inspirational quotes and the list goes on and on. However you choose to use them, I am sure they will be greatly appreciated.

I used my Sawgrass SG500 sublimation printer and my 15 x 15 heat press with the pretreated glass cutting boards that are perfect for sublimation (hint: use code 9PSR5 to save 15% on the cutting boards).

Want to see how easy it is to create this fun addition to any kitchen? Let’s get started:

Sublimation Photo Pouch

As I continue with my Sublimation Series, my mind is constantly thinking about new ways to use my sublimation printer. I had some polyester fabric laying around and that got me thinking about a project I made a few years ago. This is an updated version of my older Printable Pouch tutorial using the Cricut and Print then Cut. This time we aren’t using the Cricut.

I love how one can personalize each pouch. They are a big hit as gifts for moms, grandmas, friends and family.

As you can see on the pouch with the pink zipper, I added a peek-a-boo image from my son’s wedding on the inside of the pouch along with their wedding date. It’s the perfect place for a small momento from their special day.

I can’t wait to make a few more. I have the perfect photos in mind. If you’d like to make a few of these beginner-sewing friendly pouches, check out my tutorial below.

How to Sublimate an Enamel Mug

I have been playing with some of my sublimation blanks from the JP Plus Trend Boxes.

This cute enamel mug was screaming for something crafty! I love this super cute design by A Girl and a Glue Gun. She has so many cute SVGs on her website. Be sure and check them out. They are one-of-a-kind hand-drawn images. I love them so much!

Let’s get back to this cute pink mug. You can find it here (use coupon code 9PSR5 and save 15%). I think this is my new favorite for my morning coffee with Peppermint Stick creamer.

I used my sublimation printer and my mug press to put the image on the mug. This method of transfer is 100% dishwasher save and will last the life of the mug. Pretty neat!

I made a quick tutorial for you to show you how you can create this crafty mug.

Cricut Infusible Ink on a Sequin Pillow? Say what?

OK, this might just be my favorite project so far. You guys! This is so fun! Did you know that Cricut Infusible Ink is basically the same as Sublimation? It is. While Infusbile Ink comes in the form of a paper-like transfer sheet and sublimation ink is a liquid, they both transfer by heating the ink up to a gaseous stage that can than be infused into a substrate. Well that gave me an idea. Let’s try to make a sequin pillow using a sublimation blank and Cricut Infusible Ink. It worked!

I used Cricut Infusible Ink and an image from a Girl and A Glue Gun to create this glittery beauty! It was so easy!

Of course, I had to make more pillows for the kids using my sublimation printer.

sorry, the photos aren’t great. I forgot to take them when I made them so I had to make do with some phone pics.

so, are you ready to crank out some sequin pillows for the holidays? I’ve got two tutorials for you. One features Infusible Ink and the other is using a sublimation printer.

Sublimation – OH MY!

If you follow me on social media, you know that my latest obession has been sublimation printing.

You may have seen me post a few of my projects, like this Mouse Pad,

Or these adorable onsies,

Or perhaps you saw the coasters I made for my son and his wife.

Maybe you saw these fun mugs

or a T-Shirt or two:

I even made a wine gift bag set. Pretty cute, eh?

So, what is all this sublimation stuff, anyway? Well, in the most simple of terms, it’s a form of printing onto a substrate such as a mug, tshirt, mousepad, etc. that forms a permanent bond. These prints are dishwasher safe, washer/dryer safe, etc. They will last as long as the item they are pressed on lasts. They won’t crack, or fade and they won’t peel or scratch off. In fact, you can’t even feel the designs. Pretty neat, don’t you think?

I think I have all of my stocking stuffers ready for December! Everyone is gettng coaster sets, mousepads and mugs! :). These quick little projects are so fun to make and personalize.
