Artist with Chomas Creations adjustable marker holder

My little artist!  Hoping one day she gets into the whole scrapbook thing!
I used 2 files for Studio, the first is artist and the 2nd is water color paint set.  I then used the Chomas Creations adjustable marker holder with a .1 mm Copic Multi Liner.  These pens are made to go work with Copic markers, so no smearing.  And can I just tell you how amazed I was at just how smooth they draw with the Chomas Creations adjustable marker holder in the Cameo??  AWESOME!!


I then colored in just a small portion of the things I drew with Copic markers.  For the silver I used a silver Sharpie marker.


I needed some thicker lined journaling circles, so I made some in studio.  You can download the share for these here... journaling circles thick  I again used the Copic Multi Liner in the Chomas Creations adjustable marker holder to draw the lines on these.


I wanted the small splashes of color from the Copics to be the only color on this page, so I used some Basic Grey papers in shades of brown on this page.

Painted Burlap Canvas

Lucky me I got to get crafty with my daughter tonight!
I'm sitting here and I'm thinking, how in the world am I going to make a cute template in the software easily, and then I had this genius idea...  WORDSWAG!  It is an app where you type in your inspirational quote (I like to search google for inspirational quotes), or whatever you would like, and pick a style and it comes up with something like this...

I chose a white background and black font to make them stand out.  I then opened these in the Silhouette software and traced them.  Super duper easy!
Then I cut the template out of vinyl and added it to the burlap canvas and we painted away!  It was better to use the daubers and sponge them up and down and not move side to side.


This is the finished product, and my sister had given my daughter these super cute flowers for her birthday!  We did find the bigger letters seemed to work better because of the thick texture of the burlap.  I'm sure on a smooth surface the smaller letters would have been fine.

Birthday card using the Chomas Creations adjustable pen holder and gel pens

I loved all of the black cardstock I've been using with the chalk look, so I thought I would make a birthday card like that.
I used the cut line settings to change out all of my colors.  I have a tutorial on this here... Sparkle card
I like to do things in a row, say brads, buttons, or even this Viva Décor look.  But lining them up just right is near impossible, and I thought, why not draw some circles that are all spaced out, then the work and guessing is done for me?  So I did!  I used the Target brand up & up gel pens in the Chomas Creations adjustable pen holder to draw on black cardstock.
This was super easy in Studio, I just drew a line where I wanted my circles to be, used the rhinestone feature (1), chose the edge feature (2), chose the size rhinestones I wanted (3), and then spaced them further apart (4).  Voila!  All the guess work done for you!

Then I filled all of the circles in with Viva Décor.  This stuff is awesome! I've had it awhile.  The difference in this is when it dries it is still 3d! 
The font I chose is called Vintage One.  I also made a rectangle around the inside of my card and changed my line style settings to be dashed.  I also added a stylus to my Chomas Creations adjustable pen holder to score the fold in my card.  You can see how I did that here... score tutorial

Fun Christmas tags with the Chomas Creations adjustable pen holder

I love making my own Christmas tags with the Chomas Creations holders!  These are my fav and I will be making more this year!!!
I saw the cutest idea for a gift tag and had to make my own!  I used the Chomas Creations adjustable pen holder with a GLITTER gel pen to draw the tag designs!  If you want the file for Studio for these tags, you can get it here... gift tags  Gelly Roll by Sakura make some amazing gel pens that center in the Chomas Creations pen holders.


If you want to learn how to use the cut line settings to make your own tags, I have a tutorial here.. tag tutorial  I added lots of fun ribbon to these tags.  I can't wait to use them!

Christmas tags with Chomas Creations adjustable marker holder

One of my favorite things to do with the Chomas Creations tools is to make my own Christmas tags.  You can make a whole page full and do other things while they are running.  I found this whole pack of fine point markers from Sharpie that are no bleed so they worked perfect on this kraft cardstock.  They fit in the Chomas Creations adjustable marker holder in the Silhouette machines.  You could also do this with the Cricut Explore.


Here are the tags I did for my rice socks that I am doing as Christmas gifts.  You could also do to & from tags the same way.  Notice I make the holes as well for ribbon.

Here are my rice sock gifts.  Super easy to make, just fill a knee high sock with rice and I added 8 drops of lavender & 4 drops of peppermint both from Young Living.  You heat them in the microwave for 1 1/2  minutes and sit and relax!  The oils last quite a long time and when they fade you can always untie the sock and add more.

Are you ready for some football with the Chomas Creations adjustable holders

Football fun!  One of the hardest things for me to find is sports paper that I like.  So I make my own!
I drew the football background with the Chomas Creations adjustable marker holder and the white Signo Uniball gel pen. The design was a Studio download.  With the white pen it is easiest to keep it away from the rollers on your machine and keep your speed down to 1 and your thickness at 1 as well.
The journaling was done with the Chomas Creations adjustable marker holder and a metallic gel pen called Scribble Stuff by the Write Brothers.  I picked them up at Target.  The font is Lettering Delights thin font Sporty.
I needed something to embellish my page (boy embellishments are hard to find!) so I made the embossed stars with a stylus in the Chomas Creations adjustable pen holder and an embossing mat.  This is a thin metal sheet from Ten Second Studios.  I used a speed of 3 and a thickness of 20.  Make sure your metal sheet is secure on your mat color side down.  I just use double sided tape.  Set your height of your stylus after your mat is already in the machine.  These are nesting stars from a Studio download.
Keep in mind you can also do this with the Cricut & the Cricut Explore machines as well, you just need the proper Chomas Creations tools.
I cut out the stars using regular scissors and gave them a light sanding to make the lines in the stars pop!  The title is from a Studio download.
Here is the completed page!  Along with my football star!

Christmas tags with the Chomas Creations adjustable marker holder

Any day is a good day when I get to combine my 2 passions!  Getting crafty with getting oily!  I am starting early on Christmas gifts and working on epsom soaks with Young Living essential oils as gifts.
I used the Chomas Creations adjustable marker holder with the white Signo Uniball gel pen (my fav and available in my store here... white gel pen ) in the Cameo 3.  I'm using the cut then sketch option which sure does save a lot of time! With the white gel pen I did have to turn down the thickness to 7 and the speed to 1.  This pen does not need a lot of pressure and with the speed too fast it can smear.

Labels for essential oil recipes with Chomas Creations adjustable pen holder


I've started making my own essential oil Christmas gifts early this year and needed some labels, so I used the Chomas Creations adjustable pen holder with the Sakura Gelly Roll gel pens.  The recipes are posted below.
These are the Sakura silver shadow gel pens.  They are silver in the middle and look like they are outlined in a color.  I used the Silhouette self adhesive cardstock with them.  I slowed the speed down to 2 as they are very juicy pens and need a bit to dry so they don't smear, and the thickness to 10.
