Therm-o-web iCraft Deco Foil

Good afternoon!! Today I am sharing some projects I made using Therm-o-Web products, focusing mostly on their amazing iCraft Deco Foils

The first project is a personalised Christmas card. To make the sentiment I simply printed it, placed the deco foil over it, sandwiched it in a folded sheet of printer paper, and ran it through a laminator. I was a little unsure of my laminator, as it's new, so I put it through a couple of times to make sure the foil stuck. For this technique you MUST used a laser printer, it doesn't work with any other type of printer. 

Other products used
Card - Papermilldirect
Dies - La-La Land Crafts
Papers - Basic Grey Figgy Pudding
Ribbon - May Arts. 

Next I made a card using the iCraft Deco Foil foam adhesive. Simply cut the pieces with your dies, peel off the top paper layer, stick the die-cut to the grey/dull side of the foil and burnish with your fingers. It's such a simple technique and works perfectly each time. 

This foam is quite thin and cuts perfectly when used with dies, even quite intricate dies. 

Other products used:
Card - Papermilldirect
Dies - La-La Land Crafts
Paper and Pearsl - my own stash. 

Lastly, I used the iCraft Deco Foil Hot Melt adhesive to add a Rainbow crown to a shirt for my princess. 
As it's my first attempt at something like this I was happy with the results, even if I didn't get it 100% right. I spent a lot of time figuring out the Silhouette settings for cutting the adhesive sheets and in the end I found it was easier to cut with the rough side facing down, as opposed to facing up as per the instructions. You do need to peel it off gently and it definitely would not work on a new Silhouette mat as they are too sticky. We loved making this shirt so much that I have another couple of projects in the pipeline ;)  

Thanks for dropping by!
