Family Bear Tees from GYCT

GYCT Designs Gets Wild with Bear Family Tees

September 3rd, 2018 • Contributor: Cricut Blog Team

We’re beary excited to announce this week’s t-shirt collection! Designed by Chelsea Briner, this stylish set is perfect to outfit momma, papa and baby bear. We love this collection because it’s so on-trend, and was created to embody the spirit of a family with a brand new baby. Seriously, that onesie is adorable!

Chelsea loves the momma bear shirt because she feels like it perfectly describes the way a mother so carefully watches over her cubs. She also took special care when creating the papa bear shirt, making sure it was something a ‘papa bear’ would wear. She shared that her husband would sport it, so she knew it was dad approved!

We also loved the creativity behind using the bear shape in several different ways-both as a backdrop for words, and then as the ‘a’ in baby bear--so clever!

Tip: if you’re looking to iron-on smaller designs, like for a onesie or hat or socks, pre-order our NEW EasyPress2 in the 6”x7” size. It’s perfect for small-surface projects!

Check out the entire collection, now in Design Space!

Matisse Art Shirts House of Lars

Finding Inspiration in Art with House That Lars Built

August 27th, 2018 • Contributor: Cricut Blog Team

Our newest t-shirt collection was created and brought to life by designer and entrepreneur Brittany Jepsen, the face and voice behind House That Lars Built. We love this collection because it transports us across the sea to France, as it pays homage to the famous artist known for his bold colors, Henri Matisse.

To celebrate the launch of this partnership, we asked Brittany a few questions about herself as a designer and the inspiration behind this collection!

House That Lars Built Art Shirts

Tell us about yourself as a creator, and about how you started House that Lars Built.

I started The House That Lars Built for a graduate school blogging project 10 years ago. As blogging grew, so did I and my direction and it has since morphed into a craft and design lifestyle blog where we focus on creating beautiful and makeable projects, always with a dash of whimsy and color!

This year I released my first book, Craft the Rainbow and in two weeks I'll be releasing a follow-up companion called My Life In Color. I can't wait!

Where do you get your design inspiration, and what inspired this collection?

I get my design inspiration from all over! I've been really lucky to travel to new places and I'm constantly referencing those trips. Art history informs my aesthetic too as evident by this new collection.

I've been a Matisse lover since I was a kid. My mom had an art print of a Matisse exhibition in our home and I think back to it often. Matisse has become the artist of the past few years and for good reason--his palettes are ever-fresh, and his shapes are still current!

What do you love about Cricut?

I was introduced to Cricut a number of years ago now and since then I've been able to explore its endless possibilities. There really is nothing it can't do. I love the challenge of thinking of an idea and wondering how I can make it even cooler with the Cricut. This t-shirt collection is an example of it. I love that it looks well-designed, but it's something you can make it 5 minutes.

Summertime Tees

Summertime Vibes with Sew Sophie Lynn

August 13th, 2018 • Contributor: Cricut Blog Team

Although school has started for a lot of us, there are still a few more weeks to enjoy the sweet scenes of summer! For this week’s t-shirt collection, we partnered with Tamera Petersen of Sew Sophie Lynn, who created a line of beachy tees and tanks to celebrate her favorite season.

Tamera created this collection because the beach is her ultimate vacation location. Her first design in the collection, Vacation Mode, symbolizes her love for palm trees, sand, and an amazing ocean view.

She also wanted to personalize the look for her whole family, so she created the Paradise design specifically for her flamingo-loving daughter, and recreated the Summertime Vibes design on a rash guard for her son using SportFlex Iron-On™ The rest of her collection features EveryDay Iron-On™, our newest iron-on material with the StrongBond™ Guarantee.

There’s still time to make these shirts before Labor Day, so open Design Space and make one of these now!
