Wrestling locker sign

After spending all day Saturday at my son's wrestling meet, this was the only thing I got finished this weekend.
I made 14 signs for my son's wrestling teammates' lockers. I used a short black sharpie that I wrapped with electrical tape a few times so that it would fit into my Cricut's blade holder to do all the writing. (As you can see, it worked very well.) I used CDS to set all my sizes. I was able to draw 2 signs on on 12x12 sheet. I then trimmed the signs to the sizes I wanted and then rounded the edges. It is actually supposed to look like a license plate but my son didn't want the holes punched in the signs.

Supplies used:
Cricut cartridges: Wild Card (font) and Lacy Labels (rounded rectangle-drawn)
EK Success corner rounder
Paper is Colorbok
Black Sharpie

Busy, busy, busy

I have been working so much since Christmas I haven't been able to get anything done. However, I have been able to play with Design Studio while students are working so I have several projects saved I just need to get them cut. Hopefully this weekend...whoops...maybe Sunday as my son has a wrestling meet all day Saturday. The life of a busy mom, but I wouldn't want it any other way. Have a great day.

Snow much fun LO

Here is my submission for Frosted Designs Sketch Along Tuesdays Dec. 28th Challenge and also for Fantabulous Cricut Challenge #41. Also submitted this to Made by MOMO Tuesday challenge. This is a LO featuring my youngest daughter's adventure in the first big snowfall in our part of Colorado. She was so excited to finally get to wear her snow boots and go for a ride on her sled. She had so much fun throwing snow at Mommy!! However, when I was putting the LO together she was being such a little stinker that I was distracted and forgot to keep track of my cuts. Sorry.

Supplies used:
Cricut carts.- Jolly Holidays (snowgirl and tree)
                     Plantin Schoolbook (SNOW and snow pile)
                     Opposites Attract (much fun)
                     Lacy Labels (frame around page)
Paper is Colorbok, The Paper Studio and misc. scraps
Shimmer mist
Craf-T Chalks
Martha Stewart colored pencils
Snowgirl's face is hand drawn by me with my Zig Archival pen.
