1st birthday with Chomas Creations adjustable marker holder


Wow it has been a busy year in my house!  We have been remodeling, and it takes a lot of time and effort!  I did finally get to get a scrapbook page done of my nephew's 1st birthday, he is almost 2 1/2 now, eeeek!
I used the Chomas Creations adjustable marker holder with the white Signo Uniball gel pen.  I used the sketch feature in Studio to change a normal rectangle into the swirl pattern you see on my page.  The title was a Studio download.  The journaling is my own handwriting.

Cricut owners I need your help!

Cricut owners I need your help! I have had quite a few of you with the Explore ask if I'm going to make any holders for the Explore. Well I need opinions on what you are looking for!
If I had a pen holder that centers most gel pens, would anyone be interested in that? What about an engraving tip?
I don't have the machine (yet) and don't know if a 1/2 inch holder is an option (think original fine point Sharpie marker) but is that something anyone is interested in?
I need to see some interest before I invest in the machine and time to do all of this! Thanks for all your help!

Ooooh new gel pens to share with you!

Sometimes I get so excited about some new pens to share with you that I don't have the time to put together a project, but I did make a sample!  I can't wait to play more with these! I  was shopping at Joanns and ran across Sakura Gelly Roll pens that said they would work on matte and glossy surfaces, and I'm like, whooooah I need those!  LOL!  So here they are, and what they can do!  This is silver vinyl.  The gel pen fit in the Chomas Creations adjustable pen holder.

Puppy Love with Chomas Creations adjustable marker holder

I just LOVE the look of white gel pen on kraft cardstock!  I'm seeing it a lot out there lately as patterned paper, but why not make your own?  I didn't have any dog papers, so I did just that.  I used the Chomas Creations adjustable marker holder with the Signo Uniball white gel pen to draw the dog bone pattern on my background paper.  Because the white gel pens are very wet, I used a speed of 2and a thickness of 1 to draw this.  The bones were from the Studio store.
The title was also from the Studio store. 
We call my daughter the dog whisperer, she is so good with all of our dogs and they just love her to pieces!  I added some extra hearts and brads for some more fun!

Father's Day card with Chomas Creations adjustable marker holder

So I had to see one of these new Lettering Delights sketches for myself with Silhouette Studio, so while I was getting the kids ready for bed, I let the Cameo do all the work.  I used the Sharpie Liquid Pencil. 
Here are the Sharpie Liquid Pencils, which I found at Target (sorry they were open, I had to play hehe!)
Here is the Chomas Creations adjustable marker holder in the Cameo drawing the sketch.  I used Silhouette Studio with some of the new Lettering Delights thin fonts (this one is called LDT Teacher) to write Happy Father's Day at the bottom of the card.  Again Jin has a tutorial on using the new sketches on her blog... Under A Cherry Tree

I'm just amazed at what the Cameo can do!  Sooooo smooth!  I can't wait for Doug Larson to release more of these sketches to play with!  I inked around the edges of this card for a more rustic feel as well.  You can click on these pictures to get an even better idea on how amazing these details are!

Labels with Chomas Creations adjustable marker holder


Eeek! I totally apologize for the stale blog!  I'm in the process of renovating a kitchen, and just finished adding wood floors to my dining room and living room.  So we have been a busy house hold!  Keep calm, I am still here and get to get crafty very seldom!  HA!

I made a few mixes with essential oils and have needed to label them for awhile (instead of smelling them to figure out which is which).  I got this adhesive silver foil, used my Chomas Creations adjustable marker holder with a Sharpie ultra fine point marker, and made some cute labels!  I used some of my empty bottles and removed the adhesive with lemon essential oil (go figure!) and then added my stickers!  They stick so well to the bottles.  And I think they are super cute!  For the recipes I used for these oils, head to my oily blog!  Getting Oily

You are just plain wonderful

A special page for my 16 year old son, he is such an amazing young man!  If you would like to read the journaling it is here, I wanted it in my handwriting to make it more personal. 
I used the Chomas Creations adjustable pen holder with a Sakura Gelly Roll glaze pen to draw the lines right on my scrapbook page.  When you are drawing right on the page there is no need for a mat.  I just slid the white roller on the right over one notch, changed the setting on the machine from load mat to load media, and loaded my sheet of cardstock.
The title was from the Studio store, as was the check it out design on the right of my page, and the arrows.
Here is my completed page with my shaved bald for a good cause son!  So proud of this guy!

he won't admit it with the Chomas Creations adjustable pen holder

I found these new Sakura gelly roll pens at Michaels and had to give them a try!  They are gold shadow and wow are they neat!

I did fill this font with the internal offset like I have shown in this post... filling a font with internal offset  I added the gel pen to the Chomas Creations adjustable pen holder and let the Cameo do its thing.  This was a tough one to get a pic of!  It does show up nice in real life, and is different colored on different angles. Very cool pens! 

I also used a Staedtler triplus fineliner to do the journaling with the Chomas Creations adjustable pen holder.  The font I used is a thin font from Lettering Delights called Casual.

My pics weren't that great as they were from my phone, but they were sure cute and I couldn't get a repeat performance from Jack!  lol If you want to know more about the oils I am using for Jack and the rest of my family, feel free to visit my oily blog at... getting oily

Drew layout with Chomas Creations adjustable pen holder

This is my super duper cute new nephew Drew!  Don't you just love his hair blowing in the breeze!?! 
One of my favorite things to do with the Chomas Creations adjustable pen holder for the Cameo is to make my own background paper!  You can download the graph paper file for Studio here...graph paper  I used the Chomas Creations black metallic gel pen in the Chomas Creations adjustable pen holder with a speed of 3 and a pressure of 10 to draw these lines.
I also used the Chomas Creations adjustable pen holder to draw the journaling lines in this thought bubble.  You can get the file and tutorial for that here... thought bubble


The title was using the Lettering Delights Remington Portable. 
 

And here is the cutie patootie I was talking about, my Drew!  My daughter asked me to please please please put some buttons on this layout and picked them all out for me!

Senior photo mini album with Chomas Creations ajustable holder


Leave it to me to leave this to the last minute!  Just 2 days till my daugther's grad party and I'm still working on little projects (ok, so this one is kinda a big thing time wise!  I had this mini album sitting around just waiting to be done (2 pieces of acrylic and 4 pieces of chipboard, I had to decorate them).  I thought it would be cool to write on the arylic sheets of the album!  So I added the sheet with the blue protective cover on the bottom (that is why it looks blue in the picture) to my Cricut mat, then added some blue painters tape to keep it super secure, and added my Chomas Creations adjustable marker holder to the Cricut Expression 2.  Now being that I had this piece of acrylic in the machine that is higher then your standard cardstock, I wanted to adjust the height of my Bic Mark-It so that it didn't write on the surface of the acrylic.  So this time I added the popcycle stick on TOP of the acrylic sheet when choosing my height.  This kept it higher!

 I used a speed of 2 (didn't want my marker to smear!) and a pressure of 2 then drew my design with the Chomas Creations adjustable marker holder for the Cricut and a Bic Mark-It.

I used the Chomas Creations embossing kit to emboss the design onto a metal sheet.  I added the colored side of the metal sheet to the embossing mat, embossed the design, then sanded the raised image.

Here are some more pages in the album!  Wheeewh so glad that is done!







And here is the entire book put together!

Tutorial filling in fonts with internal offset

I got so many questions on how I filled my design on my last post that I figured I would do a quick tutorial for you!  It is actually quite easy and takes less then a minute!  The designs are all Studio downloads.
Click on the offset feature (1) then click on internal offset (2).  You can adjust the offset up and down to space the lines inside your design (3).
Make sure you highlight the outside of your design each time you do this and keep changing the offset up and down until it looks full.  This is a small design, so I did the internal offset 4 times and it completely filled in my design. 
I then added a Sakura Moonlight Gelly roll gel pen to the Chomas Creations adjustable pen holder, adjusted the thickness to 6 and the speed to 3 and drew my design.  Notice that my design is moved away from the white rollers to prevent smearing.
 

And here is my finished card!!!  Doesn't it look like chalk on chalkboard!
