Sharing some things with you.

Hello and glad to be back with a couple things. Our vacation in Savannah was wonderful, but extremely hot. I also picked up a little bug while I was there, but nothing serious. Didn't stop the sightseeing we did. I got back and painted my craftroom. Lets say this is the last time I am painting a room. These old bones hurt so bad that I think I ate Tylenol!!! Just some trim work around windows and door on the baseboards, but that will be when it cools some. Told hubby it will be hired done for the rest!!!  I am still trying to get my room unpacked and things sorted, but have a couple things to share with you today.  Hopefully, I will get back to scrapping my Disney trip from December knowing I had two vacations after that!!!  Behind of course.  Today I am sharing a layout I made to donate to a friend for a fundraiser she is doing.  This is the Bushel and Peck layout from PPBN Designs which is now www.svgcuttabledesigns.com   
This was really easy and quick to put together.  Check out this and other the great scrap pages Nikki has on her website.
I told you last time about this facebook group I am in and now she has a website and this is for free svg files for personal use.  It is called www.svgcoop.com and Robin and her talented designers share their work and I have made several of the designs.  Here are three I made to use on some pages I will be working on for that Disney trip.  She also has a facebook page so check it out and be sure to support her with only using for your personal items.  Hope to get back to scrapping this week so till next week, have a crafty week!

Just a couple projects

Well I am on vacation, but wanted to get a couple things to share with you. I will probably not have a post for a couple weeks because when I get home, the painting starts and I want to get it done!!!  I will feel much better with a freshly painted room.  This first project is card I created for my grandson who is a golfer.  I made this for his birthday in May and don't think I shared it.  It was created with a file from the Silhouette store and done on my cameo.
These bracelets were just done with a font on my computer and I got these bracelets at http://myvinyldirect.com   These are really good quality and I got earrings to match, but have not done anything to them.  They have lots of great blanks to make your own designs, so check them out!!!  Hopefully, you all had a super holiday and will see you soon!

Scrapbooking fun!

Hello and hope you are having a super, crafty week. Today I am sharing a few layouts with you and introducing you to a new place to get free, personal use only svg files.  Robin over at www.svgcoop.com and some other talented designers are sharing some of these wonderful files I used to create my layouts.  Be sure to check it up and sign up.  This first layout was made using a some of the files.  I also used a cricut cartridge for the first page, but forgot to write it down.  The Donald and truck are from SVG Coop.
These are going to be my first and last page of my Disney scrapbook.  These are svgs from the site too.
She also has some awesome templates too.  Love these I used on my Animal Kingdom pages.  All these layouts were done in Cricut Explore, but can be used in any cutting machine that uses svgs.  I will try to get a post scheduled for next week since I will be on vacation.

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.
