Ethan's Graduation

Hi Everyone, 
I can't believe he officially graduated last month. 2020 has been a wild year for everyone. 
I won't bore you with my mushy mom stuff, or overwhelm you with too many photos. I posted a bunch of them on Facebook if you want to check them all out. 

First, these are photos from graduation practice. Ethan had to dress up for Honor Society/Top 10% in the class photos. I don't get to see him dressed up much these day, shorts and t-shirts are the extent of it. He starts college in less than two weeks, so he'll get out of those shorts soon. I hope!


 Here are a few graduation day photos. We had great weather, but it was really really hot!






I hated that we couldn't have family at the ceremony, but at the same time, I loved that he at least got to have some sort of traditional graduation ceremony. It makes me sad not to see my dad or Scott's mom in these photos, but I know both of them are looking down and are very proud of him.




So those are my photos of graduation. I hope you enjoyed them. Have a great crafty weekend and I'll see you back here soon. 
Christina

Cricut Joy: Candy Jar


Hi Everyone, 
I hope you are all doing well and staying healthy.
Where has the time gone? It seems like the summer is flying by. Two weeks ago our son graduated from High School and in two more weeks he'll be starting his first year of college. I'll share some of his graduation photos in another post, but first...
It's been a hot minute since I've worked with vinyl. Scott and I had been wandering around Hobby Lobby and were in the aisle with the glass jars. Scott mentioned he needed a jar to keep his candy in on his desk at work. Of course it had to be decorated.

Gotta love a good excuse to pull out the Cricut Joy and play. 



I used the Cricut Joy for this project and love how it turned out. 
The two fonts for this project are a scripts font from Dafont.com called Amarillo and Bebas Neue

Distress Embossing Glaze


Hi Everyone,
I'm in love 💕 with the new Distress Embossing Glaze by Tim Holtz. I've been trying them out now for a few days and I'm just hooked.

What I like most is that you can play around with the colors and depending on what you use first you can get different affects. I also love that it's transparent and wow does it make your stamped images pop!


Here's a video on a few different ways you can use them. I'm sure there are more, but these are the ones I've been playing with so far. Enjoy!

Cricut Joy: Making an Insert Card

Hello everyone!
Here we are back on the blog.
After opening my Cricut Joy the very first project I made was of course an insert card. Cricut has some great free projects you can use to make cards, home decor items, and iron-on projects with the Joy Machine. I'm working on making some labels next.

The first card I made was straight from the Design Space free section. A simple hot air balloon card.
The next card was a graduation card that I added a little extra embellishment to and took it up a notch.
I hope you enjoy the video.

Craft Room Update and New Organizational Ideas

Hello Everyone, I hope you are doing well and staying safe.
I've been able to take this time to start getting videos filmed and back in the groove of creating and making content for my blog and channel.

Today I'm sharing a video on some craft room updates I've done over the past week and some new organizational items I've added to my room.
Looking back over my older craft room videos, I've seen that I kept many more items on display than I do know. I found that I really enjoyed seeing them and they are inspiring to look at.
The video for today will be down below, here are a few photos.

I'm loving the Stamp N' Storage ink pad holders painted white. 

These acrylic nail polish wall units are great for storing Stickles, Nuvo Drops and alcohol inks. Nail polish too of course. more. 


When you are redoing your room it's always great to use some old storage items you might have used in the past. You can always give things a fresh coat of paint to make them look new again.
