My sister is a mom of two boys. They are bundles of energy. So much so, in fact. the birthday party theme she chose for my youngest nephew's first birthday was “Where the Wild Things Are.” I made him a “Wild One” t-shirt for his first birthday party, but I thought she needed a fun shirt of her own so I made her a shirt that says “I Only Raise Ballers.”

DIY “I Only Raise Ballers” T-Shirt with Cricut Infusible Ink
I was SO excited to play with the new Cricut Infusible Ink product. We do a lot of crafting on the blog and at my house. We're a little nuts about crafting with vinyl here at Whisky + Sunshine and we're constantly making fun designs for home and travel, and so we wanted to create a new one with the new Cricut Infusible Ink.
The Cricut EasyPress 2 is the best tool for the job. The even heat plate, robust temperature range (up to 400°!), and portability make it the go-to heat companion for Cricut Infusible Ink. Its advanced features ensure flawless Infusible Ink results every time.
I created a cute “I Only Raise Ballers” design for my sister using the Cricut Maker. You can download a copy of the art here as a PNG file.
