Mr. Darcy Inspires Me...

Ok, So, I am cruising around the internet this weekend,
and happend upon Grey Luster Girl blog.
She was inspired by this Potter Barn ring dish:


So, like Grey Luster Girl, I had to make my own!
So, I got my Cricut cutter out.
I am not going to tell you just how I feel about that machine, but I will say this:
My family knows when it comes out, to find something else to do,
because an inconsistant machine makes me cranky...

Anyways, I was able to make things work and was able to get a clean cut.
Then I affixed the letters to my $1 clearance melamine plate.
Then I hot glued a ribbon to hang the whole thing.

I think I love it.
Thank You, Jane Austen for Mr. Darcy...

  3. Very nice! It looks very classy. So what is up with cutter thing? Aren't they insanely expensive for it to be so crappy?

  5. I posted my PB knock off right next to yours on All Things Related. I used a red polka dot melamine plate from Target. I really like how it looks on the square plate you chose.

    BTW, I found your blog maybe 6 months ago and loved the dress tutorial you did - I never subscribed and wished I had and now I've found you again. And I sound like a creepy stalker . . .

I have been able to come up with solutions for most of them and my Cricut and I now have a much better relationship. Let me know what kind of issues you are having and I would love to help you if I can. Best of luck!

  35. Love this plate, love Mr. Darcy. I'm new here and have to ask...did you have to use transfer tape to do this or did you just run your letters thru a Xyron machine to make them stick? I'm inspired to try it!

  40. Too cute! I must make one of these for my bedroom! Thanks for the inspiration!

  41. I have to agree with all of you-it's beautiful and it just sounds so proper! I need to ask a techie question since I am not a crafter like most of you-once you place the letters on the plate-do you finish it with a poly spray? What kind of finish is used to protect your work? Blessings!
