Boy I feel like I'm getting all crazy and crafty around here lately! Too much enabling goes on on the Cricut board, where I learned about freezer paper and how to use it as a stencil! And holy moly, this was a cheap task! A 75 square foot roll of freezer paper was only $4! Add a few clearance T's and voila! Ella's was first, her 5th birthday is coming up, she made the design for me! I followed it as best I could!

I also got all crazy and got some durabond (first time I've ever heard of it lol), which irons onto material, and then you can iron the material onto your T! Amazing! The most amazing part? You can use it on the Cricut! So here is Ella's shirt to wear to her birthday party tomorrow! She can't wait! I added some dark pink polka dots to the hearts to make them pop more after I took these pics.

I'm figuring out so many fun things to do with the mini gel pen holders!!!! I got these awesome dingbats from Kut n Print (Kay) here... http://cleversomeday.wordpress.com/2009/05/24/new-free-dingbat-font-for-die-cutters/ Thanks so much Kay I love those things!!!
There are just so many possibilities with the gel pen holder and SCAL! I'm so loving figuring out fun new things, I maybe addicted lol!!!
And of course that little Jack's smile lights up my day!
I made the clouds in Sure Cuts A Lot and I'm so proud of myself!!! Oh the things I learn!

Ok, had fun with this one! I made rectangles for the background with SCAL, and drew them with the mini Sharpie holder! Then designed the title and used the mini gel pen holder for that! I got this from a sketch at 52 sketches http://52sketches52weeks.ning.com/ , I can't resist a good sketch!
I'm starting to think the possibilities are endless with these holders!

I really put the gel pen holder to the test today! There is an amazing amount of details in these baseballs, and slow and steady it got er done!
I got this svg file from Todd over on craftedge and I couldn't wait to play with it! It took a long time, but it was worth the wait! This is Cam quite a few years ago in some pics I never got to because there was never baseball stuff I liked out there! Now I just make my own hehe!

The mini Sharpies and the mini Sharpie holder work beautifully on vinyl! Super simple project for my boys' door, it is a danger zone! The Keep Out is a fun font that is supposed to be wiggly and it did that wonderfully! And of course the smooth lines on the skull and crossbones came out fantastic as well!

The difference between the Chomas Creations mini gel pen holder & mini Sharpie holder

Here is an example of the difference of using either the gel pen holder or the mini Sharpie holder.

Well most that know me and that follow this blog know that I'm a scrapper! I'm not just a scrapper but one of those sick ones that makes sure their kids clothes coordinate for special occasions because those pages will be easier to scrap!
So when I asked the hubby to make me a gel pen holder for the Cricut, he knew how happy it would make me and got right to work! When some of my message board friends saw what hubby made me, they asked if they could get one. And what I thought would just be a few has grown! And I had requests for some holders for the mini Sharpies, and of course the hubby obliged!

If you are interested in either, you can email me at amyc222@yahoo.com for more information, or paypal me at amyc222@yahoo.com . Make sure you write in the comments which one you are ordering, or if it is for both.
Here is the gel pen holder...

And here is an example of the mini Sharpie holder...

Here are a few layouts I've done with the gel pen holder & Sure Cuts A Lot...

And some cards using Cricut Design studio and the gel pen holder...

Here is my lil superstar! Taylor may think she doesn't have mad volleyball skills, but I have to disagree! I love having her involved in volleyball, getting together with friends, and nailing that ball! Lucky girl got to be on a summer beach volleyball league!
