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.

Birthday card with Chomas Creations adjustable pen holder


One of the coolest things about the Sakura Souffle gel pens is how they look on black cardstock!  And they also look like they have a slightly raised texture. 
I used the Chomas Creations adjustable pen holder with the pink Souffle gel pen to draw the flourish background on this card.  The design as well as the birthday sentiment are from the Silhouette Studio store.

Once again I used the Chomas Creations adjustable pen holder with a stylus to score this card.   You can get the tutorial and file for Studio for the card here... 5x7 card
I added some Viva Decor to make the white raised images on this card as well.
