Personalized Cricut Signs

First, I’d like to check back in on my Lenten crafting challenge… So far, so good. I’ve been working on tutus for my booth at the craft fair in May. I’ve also done a Cricut project or 2 which I may share later.

Today I am sharing a bunch of projects I did one year for Christmas. I love signs and quotes. These were some early Cricut & vinyl signs that I did for Christmas one year. Simple, painted wooden plaques with vinyl cut on my Cricut and a picture hanging hook on the back. Everyone enjoyed their gifts and I liked giving something more personal.

Starting with my favorite – a perfect gift for grandparents:

And for a bunch of kiddos on our Christmas list. It was fun to use the kids favorite colors and pick an image that each individual would like. I doubled up on the butterfly as I thought it was a beautiful image and the plaques were given at separate Christmas gift exchanges. All of the vinyl with the exception of the orange robot and the soccer ball were cut on my Cricut.

I would love to get into making more signs. I’d also like to get the hang of antiquing my signs.

ConGRADulations!

I love to make my own greeting cards to share with friends and family.  Although not everyone appreciates the effort, I feel like it is sending a little more love than buying one off the store shelf.  Here are a set of graduation cards I made recently.

Grad Cards

These cards are made using Creative Memories current line of graduation products.  We offer a set of stickers and a package of paper.  The paper is stunning and most of it can be used for many occasions other than graduation.  Weddings, retirements, anniversaries are just a few of the other uses for this beautiful paper.  A number f CM tools were used including the newest “notebook” cartridge for the BorderMaker and the “circle tag” for the ShapeMaker.  One trick I employed to add a little texture to the cards was to pop up many of the title blocks.  Since these were actually stickers, I needed to de-sticky them first which I did by dipping them in cornstarch (baby powder works too).

Hope these inspire you to offer your congratulations to the graduates in your life!
