A Card and some vinyl creations

So with school being out I find myself with a bit more "free time"! Free-time means being able to stay up later than normal...which gives "mommy" a few extra hours a night to create! Woohoo!

So I have been organizing and moving things around in my room again...going through old design team kits and trying to challenge myself to use them up...I should have done this a long time ago...because I am really swimming in stuff! I have been thinking about "going green" more lately...and I think using up some of my old supplies before "buying" new...might move me in the right direction....what do you think?

So with some old 3 bugs and a new Martha Stewart Crafting punch I made this little card in just a few minutes...

For mother's day this year Chad and the kids got me the SCAL software! I just love how this has opened up a totally new world for my cricut! It's been a lot of fun playing with all of the fonts (as you can cut any true type font with this software and also any dingbat).

So here are a few vinyl projects that I made using my SCAL and cricut.

The Princess sleeps here vinyl wall sign (this is just above Ashlee's bed...she is just tickled with it in her room...and shows everyone that comes over...LOL) She also has shown all of us her sign (as a reminder) from time to time...yep she is a girly girl.

USA Glass Block: I actually made a few of these before the kids got out of school and gave them to the teachers as the "end of the year gift". I had this smaller block left over so I decided to make one for myself. I will put it up on the shelf in my kitchen next to a wooden American flag that I keep up during the summer.

Well I better get back to cleaning...I am trying to go through 1000 little primas that Gavin dumped out yesterday...gotta love a boy that likes flowers, right?
