Vinyl and my House

Well I went a little crazy one day with the youngest son said to me "Mom stop, the next thing you know you'll have vinyl everywhere!" (little did he know, that was my strategy). So I made my house numbers & placed them on a milk can I have on the porch, I made my street name & placed it on my garage...then I cut some vinyl for my pool!!! Happy Crafting... P.S. if you cannot tell...I LOVE LOVE LOVE CUTTING VINYL =)

this & that

Well I've been neglecting my blog and well I am making up for it tonight....the photos are of miscellaneous items that I've made in the past.....I hope you enjoy....I'm more of a card maker or just general papercrafter...although in the past I've tole painted, sewed, gallery glassed, cross stitched, all but knitting....I've been creative since I was young..but in the last 15yrs I've really gone wild....I love to collect paper, glitter, and cricut cartridges....(the Christmas card I got the design from Happy Happy Joy Joy at Everyday with the Cricut, my girlfriend Jennifer is modeling the tray with vinyl I helped her make for gifts along with the believe Christmas blubs. The stop Santa sign I painted back in 1992....there are 11 different paint colors in Santa's beard!!! Happy Crafting~

College Bound

Well my oldest son transferred to Michigan Tech University this year. We hosted a going away party for him & I decided to create centerpieces. I picked up the idea from JoAnn fabric titled graduation centerpiece. A variety of cartridges were used for this...I did not have all the carts that JoAnn's had suggested so I improvised....they were a hit (and I even think my son liked that I went to the trouble of making these =) ) they are now on his dresser in his room as a reminder of how proud we are of him! Happy Crafting~

Pencil boxes

A friend of mine bought these adorable pencil boxes and wanted to personalize them for her children (which is great when your children have uncommon names). I think they turned out super cute! I used George and Basic Shapes cartridge and vinyl. Happy Crafting
