Basketball Layout

Once again, I have been busy and haven't had much crafting time.  I did do this simple basketball layout to share today.  I used the cricut to cut some of my papers into an 8x8 squares to add some layers to the pages. I then used the Batman Font to cut the title out of white vinyl and used some stickers to add to the page.  The pictures are from Kaylee's basketball season earlier this year.

My Stache Savings Jar

My sister asked me to make this for her and Kaylee to save money in. I could not resist making one for myself too! I bought these jars at Hobby Lobby and used black vinyl to decorate them. The mustache is from the Lettering Delights cutset "Mustache Mania" and I used the Batman Cricut Font for the saying. I think these would be great to give with a gift if you were giving money as the present.

R2D2 Shoes

My hubby made me the coolest shoes. He started with white flats from Walmart (only $5) and then traced out the design on them with a marker. He then painted them with acrylic paints. The second picture of the shoes is with a R2D2 trash can that he made me a few years ago to use for giving out candy at Halloween.

Scrabble Tile Coasters

I made these coasters for my dad for Father's Day.  I saw the idea on Pinterest.  I used hot glue to attach the Scrabble Tiles to Cork Roll and then cut around them to make the coaster.  Once I had that attached, I used a couple coats of Mod Podge over the top of the tiles and let that dry.  Finally, I sprayed them with water sealant that I purchased at Hobby Lobby so they would hold up to drinks being set on them.  He has a bar in his garage that he is going to use these in.

Memo Board Picture Frame

I am back from my mini vacation.  I got the idea for these on Pinterest.  I bought the picture frames at Hobby Lobby and put a piece of notebook paper inside the frame.  I used black vinyl and the Batman Cricut Cartridge to cut (To Do:) for the top of the paper.  I then used a velcro circle to attach the dry erase marker to the back.  I made these for my sisters to go with their birthday presents.  My hubby drew a little picture on them for the girls.  (I thought I took a picture of the back, but realized now I didn't.  I just placed a velcro circle on the frame and on a dry erase marker to attach it.)
