Harry Potter and Magical Spells!

Since it is almost Halloween I thought it would be the perfect time to share a few layouts I made to document our time in World of Wizards (Universal Studios). We went on vacation in the summer of 2019 and spent a day with Harry Potter and all things magical.

The paper line I used for these layouts is by Photoplay. I adore the design, but do not like that it is glossy. If I was not desperate for it, I probably would have not bought it just because it was glossy.

The conductor at Platform 9 3/4 was amazing!

This picture of my son is my favorite! He looks so much like a wizard and was smiling. It is hard to get a teenager to smile sometimes 🙂

My favorite part of the park is the Butterbeer. I liked it so much that I had to make some at home!

Until next time ~ Happy Crafting!

Butter Beer Float Recipe and Harry Potter Etching!

To announce our upcoming vacation I decided to create each family member a Harry Potter glass mug full of a Butter Beer float! We are heading to Universal Studios pretty much for Harry Potter. Two summers ago we visited and went crazy over the Butter beer they served in the park. I knew this was the perfect hint to our vacation.

Not only have I created a pictorial tutorial for you I also created a video of how to etch on glass and as a bonus the Butter Beer Float recipe!

Tutorial:

Cut a Circle from vinyl

Save the circle for another use and keep the frame.
Flip the frame over to adhere to a transfer sheet and remove the backing.

Adhere to mug.
Remove transfer sheet.
Place vinyl image in center of frame using the same process.
Carefully apply a thick coat of etchall to circle.
Let it sit for at least 15 minutes and remove etchall….
…making sure to return the etchall cream to the jar for a later use.
Rinse with warm soapy water.
Remove the vinyl image.
And remove the frame.
Your mug is now ready to be used!
