Cricut Bright 360 Lamp
When our daughter was due to be born, my husband spent 6 months finishing our basement so we could move my crafting office downstairs and have room for the baby. The basement space is inherently very dark and I have been looking for a lighting option that would allow me to effectively work in the dim light. Enter the Cricut Bright 360 Ultimate LED Table Lamp.
I have spent years trying to find a lighting combination that would allow me to effectively see as I work, adjust the light position and hue and photograph my projects. Nothing really seemed to meet all my needs until I received the Cricut Bright 360 Lamp.
Set up was extremely easy with pretty much one quick snap together part and a plug in and we were ready to go. The lamp itself is very sturdy and well made. There are two big things that I absolutely love about the lamp. First, I can reposition it very easily to work on those tiny details as it pivots and rotates so smoothly. Second, I can adjust the brightness and color temperature to make sure that my light is ideal for this dim basement.
The table lamp does not feel hot to the touch and is very stable. I wanted to show the extremes of light in my space. Looking at the image above you can see the differences in shadows, colors, details and tone. Adjusting the color temperature and brightness is super simple with just a quick slide of the controls too, allowing me to really narrow in on just the right lighting options. Overall the Cricut Bright 360 Table Lamp has been a fantastic addition to my craft office.
Infusible Ink Reversible Holiday Pillows
No Cricut post would be complete without a easy and free project! I have waited to do this project for a while, simply because the lighting was so bad in the space that the last few projects I have done during the dim winter months have actually ended in migraines from squinting. These infusible ink reversible holiday pillows are already some of my favorites.
If you don’t know, I decorate my house for every holiday and season and I am currently working on having throw pillows for our couches to match. If you would like to make this project, make sure to check out my design space link here and grab the supplies below:
- Infusible Ink Pillow blanks
- Infusible Ink Mermaid Rainbow Transfer Sheets
- Smart Iron-on Gold Glitter
- Cricut Maker 3
- Weeding Tools
- Cricut EasyPress
The project itself is really straight forward. Cut the shamrocks and bunny out on the infusible ink transfer sheets and the words from the iron-on glitter and then weed. Place the butcher paper sheets inside the pillowcase and then lay the shamrocks and the phrase out in whatever pattern you desire on one side of the pillowcase. Cover with heat protectant sheet and press with the EasyPress. Once everything is set, remove backing and flip over, repeating the process with the bunny and phrase.
I made two of these for each couch in our living room. They look so good and I love that I can easily swap the decor in the living room with little fuss. The colors are vibrant and fun and the project was a million times easier to complete with NO headache after, due to my new Bright 360 lamp!
