Glass Blocks with More Vinyl

Hello Again,
I made these glass blocks for my son's football banquet (I also made 40 little treats for some friends and several gift card holders that I FORGOT to take pictures of - sheesh!!)

The vinyl was cut using my E2 and the cricut decals cartridge that was pre- loaded. The '30' was cut using the Cricut Lite cartridge Varsity Letter. Inside I used Metallic crinkle.  These were really fun to make and they looked great on the check in table.

Heat Transfer Vinyl

Hello Again,
Wanted to share a shirt I had made for my hubby with some Heat Transfer Vinyl (from H & H sign supply). He told me exactly how he wanted this laid out and then when he wore it a few other coaches asked me to make them one too! FUN!!

Have a Blessed Day!!

Vinyl Car Decorations

Hello from Seattle!!!
My husband, son and I are on a little getaway. While they have been out watching football (Apple Cup yesterday Yeah Huskies Win!!! and Seahawks game today) I have had some awesome ALONE time!! LOL -- We have done quite a bit of sight seeing together but the trip was really for the two of them to go to the football games.

Anyway, I thought I would share another project that I made with Vinyl from H & H Sign supply. In October my sons team had their Homecoming parade. I thought I would decorate the car up some with vinyl and this is what I came up with:

I used my E2 to cut all the vinyl. Cartridges used included the E2 preloaded Cricut Decals, Varsity Lite and the Sports Mania cartridge. My son is #3 -- we won this game and actually ended up going to the Super Bowl which we did lose 13 - 6. But all in all we had an awesome season and were very proud of our boys.

Discount Mugs Clear Cups & Vinyl

Please forgive me as I know I have not been posting much. I am hoping to get back involved in my hobby full speed ahead after the holidays. Although, I will be working on some projects and will try to remember to take pictures and post them.

My most recent project was an order for some cups with a vinyl cheerleader applied along with the name of the organization. These cups will be given to the girls as an end of the year gift. Now the odd part of this is that this organization is the local rival to the team that my son plays for. I had made several of these cups for my friends who have children that play and someone from the other organization saw them and wondered if I would make them for them as well. I figured -- Why Not? I can make a couple of extra dollars for Christmas right.

Well enough rambling on. The Cheerleader is from Cricut Decals that was pre-loaded on my E2 and the lettering is also from the pre-loaded font cartridge that came with it as well. The team colors are red & blue. I purchased the cups from Discount Mugs and the vinyl from H & H sign supply.

The order was for 25 of these which turned into another order for 5 more. YEAH!!! Extra Christmas money.

Have a Blessed day all,

TGF Heart Journaling Challenge - Week 5 Pieces of Me

This week is back to school here in my home so I have been BUSY!!! I did not want to give up on the challenge that I have been participating in over at The Greeting Farm. Other then this challenge, I have also been trying to USE WHAT I HAVE!!! This hobby is causing me to become a hoarder of all things scrap-booking related. On this layout I have used my cricut for some die cuts and stickers that I have had FOREVER!!! Or at least for some time now.

 Blessings All,

Heart Journaling Week 4 - Draw

Well, I completely stepped out of my comfort zone on this one. We were instructed to 'DRAW' a girl:

WEEK 4 - The Girl in Me

Assignment: Create a spread or a page using the concept of hand-drawn girls. I want you to actually draw a character in your book!!! It can be sketchy, cartoony, realistic, or even stick figures.  Not necessary to use any TGF stamps, this is YOUR journal, do what you want cuz you rule that journal!

I am not 100% happy with this but am happy that I completed the assignment.

Thanks for looking!

TGF Heart Journaling Challenge

The Greeting Farm had a sign up recently to participate in a 23 week Heart Journaling challenge. Each week a new challenge will be given and then you are to go and create. I NEEDED to take up this challenge as I need to get my MOJO back and I thought I would take this time to actually journal about what is going in my life.

This weeks challenge was Wings - create anything you want as long as you use wings in your project. I decided to use a digi Fairy image from The Greeting Farm (I colored her with Copics). I also used an EK Success punch for some butterflies and a butterfly stamp on a journaling spot.

Now I just need to go back and journal. I am looking forward to these challenges and hoping to take the opportunity to try some new things and use all the stuff I keep collecting.

Blessings, Jenny

Birthday Gift Card Holder - Cindy Loo

Hello Again,
Last week for my Flaunt It Friday design post we used Cindy Loo. Well while I had it out and loaded up I also needed to make a gift card holder as my son was going to a birthday party on Saturday. I used DCWV paper and cut this at 8inch (could have been a bit smaller - I originally cut it at 4in and that was way to small).

The sticker is from Karen Foster - I just love the dimension on it. I used Glue Dots to hold the gift cards down. Easy!!

Happy Easter - HE Is Risen Alleluia!!!

Happy Easter!!

This is the last (and most favorite) of my Easter cards!! These were made again with the Easter Seasonal from 2010.

The background paper is actually from a baby stack from K & Co., the label was cut from Lacy Labels - I cuttlebugged, glossy accented and glittered it up. I used some seam binding and ran an ink pad over it to match my colors, some Prima flowers and a My Pink Stamper Stamp.

Happy Easter and remember - it is only by His Grace that we are Saved because of his sacrifice. Enjoy the day with your Family and Friends.

Blessings, Jenny

Easter Shadow Box - A Childs Year

Hello Friends,
I bought some shadow boxes recently on sale at M's and need to start putting these to some good use for seasonal decorating. I decided to use A Child's Year to make this seasonal Easter piece:

I cut the image and then the shadow. Then I used LOTS of Prima Flowers in shades of purple to add some additional dimension. This is so simple but really looks beautiful. It is currently hanging in the powder room and will have to be repurposed for Graduation time.

Flaunt It Fridays - Cindy Loo Anything Goes

Hello FIF Peeps,
This week we are Flaunting the Cindy Loo cartridge and you can create anything you want with it. The design team has come up with some AWESOME ideas if I do say so myself.

I decided to use the cupcake wrappers on the cartridge to get ready for some Easter cupcakes - imagine you see YUMMY cupcakes inside of these (0:

I used K & Co. paper and some gems for the eyes on the birds. These were cut at 3 in and are very intricate so you want to use a lower speed.

Make sure you check out all the creations what were made for you this week and I cannot wait to see how you flaunt your Cindy Loo!!

Blessings, Jenny
