Been Gone To Long!!!

Welcome and so sorry for being away so long, but life sometimes gets in the way and summer is usually the time this happens for me.  With my grandson and two great nephews graduating and traveling out of state a few times, it has kept me busy along with ballgames and other things.  I have been working and today I am sharing some of the things with you.  I will be going on another vacation soon and two rooms to paint, but will try not to be away too long.  I still have more projects and information to share with you later.  I hope you will like today's share.
I am sharing a couple layouts that I created for my friend Nikki who has www.svgcuttabledesigns.com   I did some for her to post for a club she is going to have, but you can purchase her svg scrapbook files without the club.  The first one is Soccer Star and the other is Party Animal.  Her layouts are complete with with all the elements are so reasonable in price!  You can use them in any cutter that will cut svgs.  I used my Cricut Explore on one and my Silhouette Cameo.

I relettered my sons mailbox and completely forgot to take pictures and my husband thought we needed a new mailbox and we bought the one above so I designed the front of it with vinyl.  I used a file that I purchased in the Silhouette Store and fonts on my computer.  Super easy.  The vinyl is 651 and good for outside use.
I purchased some vinyl from Pro World that is made for signs and it is a Ultra Vinyl.  I did wash this in the dishwasher on the top rack.  It stayed on, but a couple letters moved so I hand wash not.  It was on the skinny fonts.  I got this saying from the Silhouette Store.
Well I jumped on the Yardzee bandwagon and my family wanted some for their summer games and pool parties.  I made my younger son this set for University of Kentucky Wildcats in the colors of blue and white.  I could not find any soft wood in 4 x 4 in our town so we bought fence post and cut them 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 , not a perfect 4 inches on it and it was kind of heavy.   We put them in the hot sun for several days and flipped them over and when they dried out, the got much lighter.  I primed and painted them and then cut a stencil and painted the dots on them.
My granddaughters wanted smaller sets, so Nana made some smaller ones in the colors they liked.
Since my grandson is going to Western Kentucky University, his parents wanted theirs for his school colors.  They plan to attend football games and tailgate while he is in college and this will be a fun game along with their cornhole.  I really enjoyed making these for my family.  Hope you enjoyed these few projects and I should be back next week with a few more before I leave to go to Savannah and Hilton Head for vacation.  I have some things to share that I made for my little granddaughters birthday party this weekend.  See you soon and Happy Crafting!!!

Sharing a layout today

Not sure about where you live, but here in Ky. I am so sick of the cold and the rain!! Bring on summer! With the weather so crazy, it is giving me some time to scrap. Today I am sharing a layout I made from my Disney trip using the Disney Memories svg files from PPBN Designs.  You can check out all her wonderful scrapbooking layouts.  I love that all I need to do after cutting is put on the page and add my pictures.  With as many pictures as I took on that trip, I need some help!!!  I cut this on my Cricut Explore, but you can use any machine that cuts svg files.  I just sorted pictures from my trip last month so I better get these Disney completed!!!  See you next week with some graduation card ideas.

Let's talk Father's Day

First off, sorry for the delay on today's post. They are working on the cable lines in front of my house so for the last couple days I have little or no service which stinks. Hopefully, soon they will get it fixed!!!  Now my little rant is over.  The next couple weeks will be hectic for my precious grandson along with my two great nephews will be graduating high school.  My grandson also turns 18 this coming Saturday and I am totally not ready for any of this.  He is my first grandchild and my only grandson and he is such a wonderful young man and he is a shining example for his sister and cousin.  My projects will be here, but not my normal is, but then my summer is always hectic with having fun.  Today I am sharing some Father's Day cards.  I purchased Anna Griffin's Victorian Toppers and they have so many Father's Day in the mix that I could sell cards for the next 5 years and not run out lol.  Here are just a few.  Easy to put together with your favorite papers.  Have a super week and happy crafting.

Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all you fabulous people! Been one of those hectic weeks, but manage to have something to show you. My husband decided I needed to do some shirts for his assistant coaches and everyone liked them so some of the fans want some too!  So I even managed to get a few cards and some other projects done for a friend.  I didn't quite get to finish this last project, but you will get the idea. 
This is a quick card using some embellishments from some of the Anna Griffin kits and using my cuttlebug to emboss.  Makes some fast cards that way and I even made a few extras to sell for those last minute people for the yard sale.
This is a shirt I made my friend who is going to Disney soon.  I used the Mickey cartridge, my Cricut Explore and a font from Dafont called Walt.  This is done in all glitter HTV and my heat press.
This is a project that is unfinished, but will be by the time I give it to my husbands mother.  This is from the new Mother's Day kit from Dreaming Tree Designs.  I love it and was so easy to put together.  Check out Leo and his fabulous team at www.3dsvg.com   Till next week, have a fabulous week.

Sharing a Layout

Hi Friends. Well I really didn't have time for much crafting this week with cleaning out stuff and getting ready for a big yard sale next weekend, but managed to get a layout completed. Now I did do a little vinyl work for my hubby. He is coaching our little granddaughters baseball team and he bought batting helmets and wanted me to put the team logo on the front and the sponsor on the back.  He was really pleased.  Sometimes being crafty is also hard because they automatically think you can create anything! lol  Now I am ready to start working on my Disney trip and this is a layout I made with the svg kit file from SVGCuttabledesigns.com (formally PPBN Designs)  I love all Nikki's kits and use them all the time.  This was one of our favorite spots while at the parks.  Hubby loved Epcot the best!  I used the Cricut Explore to create this.  I will try to get my Mother's Day project ready and share with you next week.  Have a crafty week.
