Back to school sign with Chomas Creations adjustable marker holder

Back to school signs!  I love these for the first day of school every year!
I used a Signo Uni-ball white gel pen (can I again say just how much I LOVE this gel pen?) in the Chomas Creations adjustable marker holder.  Because these pens are pretty juicy, you do need a slower speed of 2 and a thickness of 1 so they don't smear.  Try to keep your designs away from your rollers as well when you are drawing with these pens.

Again I'm going for the chalk look that is so hot right now!  This is just plain black cardstock!  How cool does that look? 
The fonts I used here are all from Da Font (top to bottom)
KG Second Chance
Vintage One
Sketch Serif
Denne threedee
Vintage One

Look at those details!

Essential oils become main stream....

Did you hear?  Essential oils are becoming more main stream.  So I'm not the only one using them and loving them!  I love getting the word out there on these amazing little bottles of loveliness!  I'm a big advocate for health and living healthier and the essential oils were another step for me in my journey to a chemical free home.
This month Young Living is giving a free 15 ml bottle of cedarwood (goodbye sleepless nights) and I'm going to throw in a 5 ml bottle of joy (hello happy days!) if you are a new member that wants to get a premium starter kit.  Why do I like the premium starter kit?  Well you get not 11 (normally you get 11), not 12, but 13 oils with it as well as some samples you can keep for yourself or give to a friend.  And what do I like even better about it?  They are oils I order time and again, so they are common oils that you will also reach for again and again.
If you order through me I will also send you some learning materials and get you into a Facebook group with 1800 other people learning about the oils.
If you are ready to get started feel free to contact me to learn more!  amyc222@yahoo.com
These are all the goodies in the kit as well!
So what are you waiting for??? :)

What's in your air freshener?

Is it just citronella, lavandin, tea tree, lemongrass, rosemary and myrtle?  And the main ingredient water?  Does it smell this amazing? I wish the internet had scratch and sniff!
I sprayed the dog beds, the furniture, the carpets, the rugs...
Hey I have dogs and boys.  Need I say more?

Chomas Creations tools in the Silhouette Cameo 3

Silhouette did it again!  They released a new machine called the Cameo 3 with 2 different holders on it.  So you can cut and draw or cut and engrave at the same time :)  No switching out tools.  I'm sure excited to try it out and make something but for now I can show off how wonderfully the Chomas Creations tools fit in the Cameo 3.  They do fit on the left or right, so that is pretty darned cool!

Vinyl & the Chomas Creations adjustable marker holder

Back to school is sneaking up on us quickly and I thought, why not make some fun labels for the kids' things?  So I did lol!
Did you know you can use Sharpies on vinyl and they won't smear??  Some of you may have seen my post about the new fluorescent Sharpies I found (if you missed it, it is right HERE)  I wanted to see how these Sharpies would work on the white vinyl, and when I showed my daughter she jumped up and down squealing, so I guess she liked it!  My son came running asking for some for him!

The fine point Sharpies will fit in the Chomas Creations adjustable marker holder for both the Silhouette and the Cricut Expression 2.  Vinyl is a glossy surface, which can cause smearing so I slow the speed to 5 for these, and of course you don't want to crush the tip of your Sharpie so use a thickness of 1. 
I made these designs in Designers Edition of Studio.  I used a Lettering Delights thin font for the names and used the sketch feature in DE to change a regular oval to the loop de loop and the sketched oval design.  I then used an offset of the sketch for cutting around my design.  If you need to learn how to sketch a design then cut around it, I have a tutorial HERE.
