Barnyard Moosical with Chomas Creations adjustable marker holder

More cute sketches in the Studio store means more cute layouts for me lol!  The cow was a sketch file from Studio, the title was done in Lettering Delights thin font called Giddy.  Jin did a post on her blog alerting me that Giddy is a FREE download from Lettering Delights, you can get the info here... Under a Cherry Tree 
While thin fonts don't show up as single line fonts in Studio, they are pretty darned close!  The bigger you make the font the more you can tell that it is double lined.  I drew the title and journaling lines with the Chomas Creations adjustable marker holder and a Copic Multiliner .5 mm tip.  I changed my lines in Studio using the line style feature so I could have dashed lines. 

I also added some music notes as it was for a Moooosical after all!  The dots I made were using a Viva D├ęcor pearl pen.  The dots even look poofed when dry!

Father's Day card with Chomas Creations engraving tip

Oh boy, I almost (I did say almost, right) feel guilty because this card was soooo easy to make!  The title is from the Studio store.  The kraft cardstock is made for cards and pre-scored.  All I did was use the Chomas Creations engraving tip in the Cameo with a speed of 3, a thickness of 33, and double cut to etch the sentiment in the card.  Then I swiped a Tim Holtz distress ink over the top of it!  I've been sooo busy lately (I know excuses, excuses) and had just a few minutes to get this done!  I think it gives a pretty neat look as the ink absorbs into the etched cardstock and is darker then the rest of the card!

3 ring circus with Chomas Creations adjustable pen holder

Ah the story of my life!  With 4 kids and 3 dogs it is often a 3 ring circus in my house.  My mom was watching us try to load our mini van one night, trying to get the kids in, dogs get out and are running around the mini van, we are chasing dogs, telling the kids to get their seat belts on, and in her car my mom is just cracking up telling me she can hear the circus music playing.  It is funny, it is hard, but I wouldn't have it any other way! 
I had to find a circus font for this page, so I googled circus fonts and came up with this one.  I used the Chomas Creations adjustable pen holder with a Staedtler pen to draw the title.  Doesn't it look amazing???  Doesn't look like it was drawn by the Cameo!  You can get the file for the title here... 3 ring circus
I also used the Chomas Creations adjustable pen holder to draw the journaling lines in the circle.  The share for the journaling circle is right here on my blog... journaling circle

And here are all the members of my 3 ring circus!  I also added some ribbon and canvas stickers to the page for some fun extras!  The rings were also cut with the Silhouette Cameo!

Birthday card with the Chomas Creations adjustable pen holder and some free fonts!

So I see these doodle fonts that I like from someone else, then realize there is a whole bunch more by the same person!  So if you are looking for some dingbats and cute fonts (some are thin and would work great for journaling), look no further then MTF fonts!
I used the MTF Cupcake font for this card, as well as the MTF Sweetdings for the actual cupcake.  Did I mention both are FREE fonts!  And look how cute!  I drew them both with the Chomas Creations adjustable pen holder and the Staedtler triplus fineliner (one of my fav pens!).  I used a thickness of 4 and a speed of 5 for the drawing.
 Notice how the font looks like a thin font or single line font.  This will work at smaller sizes for these fonts, but the bigger you get the font will look outlined.
