Chomas Creations tools in the Cameo 3

I have already  mentioned that all of the Chomas Creations tools for the Silhouette will work in the Cameo 3, but in case you missed it...  All of the Chomas Creations tools will fit in the Silhouette!
And if you would like to see it in action I did a Facebook live video you can see here...  Facebook LIVE!

I will admit I do not have the best printing and that is what I love about using the Chomas Creations adjustable pen holder with gel pens.  My fav gel pens are the Gelly Roll by Sakura.  They have over 100 different styles and colors, so you are sure to find something you like.  They also center in the adjustable pen holder.  I use journaling fonts, thin fonts or sketch fonts.  There are links on the left side of my blog for some thin font ideas.
I do like to buy these cards that are cut to size and already scored, and they come with matching envelopes.  I just add them to my mat and draw write on them.  I finished them off with some ribbon that my little helper helped me pick out!  I try to keep cards on hand at all times so I can grab them and go.  Some are super simple like these!

Shrink plastic and the Chomas Creations mini marker holder for the Cricut

Have I mentioned before that you can use shrink plastic with the Chomas Creations Chomas Creations adjustable marker holder in the Expression 2 or Cricut Mini with a Sharpie marker?
In case you missed it, you can do this! And cut it with the Cricut or Silhouette when you are done! Think of all your own embellies you can make!
Here is what the shrink plastic looks like straight from the Cricut...

To do this, just add the shrink film to the Cricut mat, cut with the blade housing, remove the blade housing, replace with your mini Sharpie holder, and draw the images! I had to use multi-cut 3 on the shrink plastic with the regular blade, and to get a better look with the Sharpies, I use multi-cut 2. To shrink my shrink film, I use my heat embossing tool! Just add a heat resistant surface to your surface (I just use a cardboard box), and warm them up and watch them shrink!
Here is a close up of the shrinkies, shrunk!

The paper and embellies are all Making Memories  Pitter Patter line.

October 31 with Chomas Creations adjustable pen holder

 Halloween also means costumes and pictures!  Here is my youngest son's choice for the year!  Bumblebee from the Transformers.
I used the Chomas Creations adjustable pen holder in the Expression 2 with a Souffle gel pen (yes a full sized gel pen!) to draw all of the orange background circles.  These pens when dry have a poofy texture to them.  The popcycle stick adjusts the height for the pen, then you tighten the screw!

The title is from Happy Hauntings.  I added some cute brads to it!

The journaling circle on this page was also done with the Chomas Creations adjustable pen holder in the Expression 2.  You can get a tutorial and the download for that here...  journaling circles

Here is the finished project with my Bumblebee!  He had to take his costume for a test drive!  hehe
