Some Vinyl work at Work!

I installed an older version of the "Sure Cuts A Lot" program on my laptop so we could get our program logos cut out with the Cricut.   

IBBC & IBCL stands for Itty Bitty Basketball and Itty Bitty Cheerleading, our program for kindergarten kids.

This is the program we use for 1st - 7th graders.  We love how these turned out!  Lots of projects rolling around in our heads now!

29 Again?

This week at The Outlawz Twisted Thursday our theme is Anything Goes with the twist "Anything Goes".  We are sponsored this month by 

I thought this was a really fun digi to play with!

    I've colored it with Spctrum Noir pens, the background paper is from The paper Studio.

Thes fun ballons are plastic and have been in my stash for years!  HONEST! I've got to use some of this stuff I've been "saving".

This is part of a Stampabilities stamp.  There's an image on the stamp, too.

Come on over and join in the fun!

Froggie Fashionista!

Our theme is the "Facets of Crafting" at Tuesday Throwdown this week.   Use gems, sequins, etc, as long as it is faceted!  We are sponsored by Day For Daisies provides themed categories of over 1000 digital illustrations and a fast growing line of new clear polymer, including fairy tales and magical mermaids, cutie kids, vintage illustrations, sentiments and lovely designs for all occasions! Now enjoy your favorite A Day For Daisies images in clear polymer!
I fell in love with this CUTE image called "Froggie Divine"!

Now how fun is that frog?!?!  Can't you think of just dozens of funny sentiments to use?

I immediately thought of the "Fashionable Friends" stamp set I have from KAndrews.   Inside I  used a stamp from Hero Arts.  
I liked this image so much I colored her in blue, too.

I mounted the image on a piece of burlap from a fun pad of colored burlap I bought at Hobby Lobby.  Inside this one I hand wrote "Yeah, me Neither!  Happy Birthday Anyway"!"  I made this one for a friend who, like me, wears jeans and boots all the time.  We've joked about staying on top of fashion trends, just not taking part in them!  So I thought this was perfect!
Thanks for stopping in, I hope you enjoyed these as much as I enjoyed making them!

Tiger Striped Valentine!

Hello again!  It's time for another challenge at My Sheri Crafts!  This time DT sister Sandy is prepping for Valentine's Day and asked us to include at least one heart on our projects.  So here is mine:

This is a cut from the Cricut cartridge "Lovestruck".

This pic shows the glitter added to parts of the heart.  You know when you run your diecut through the Xyron sticker maker and it usually has some adhesive stretched out between the smaller cuts?  I usually take a rubber eraser to it, but then sometimes I just dump glitter on it!  Problem solved!

Cme on over to MSC and join us on this super easy challenge and check out the awesome inspiration from the rest of the team!

"Lovely As A Tree" challenge

This week at The Outlawz Twisted Thursday our theme is Anything Goes with the twist "Lovely as a Tree".  We are sponsored this month by 

I thought I would use background paper with trees, but didn't find anything I wanted for this image, so I used paper with beautiful, sparkly tree leaves!

Then I decided I didn't want just a regular shaped card, but didn't want just an oval card either.  So I split the difference!  LOL  It kind of looks like a great big "D"!  But I added part of a doilie and some blue lace and I like it o.k.  :)  

Come on over to The Outlawz and check out all the challenges over for every day of the week!  But please be sure to join us at Twisted Thursday!

Etched Drinking Glasses

I made some etched drinking glass sets for Christmas gifts this year!    I have a really hard time getting good pictures of glass etchings, so I hope you can see the design.

This design I got from a freebie online coloring page.

                           This one is from the Cricut cartridge "Team Spirit".

I made each of them a set of four.  They were a pretty good hit!

Thanks for stopping by!
