I want to share with you some fun projects I’ve made with vinyl.

First is a sign I made for my friends.  They recently redid their basement and I thought this would be a fun piece to bring over to their basement warming party.  I used a clear plastic frame and personalized the front of it with vinyl.  I cut the vinyl with my Silhouette Cameo (love that thing!)   Using Artisan I printed some backgrounds for various holidays & seasons & favorite teams.

My boys are HUGE Minecraft fans so they wanted me to personalize a water bottle & sandwich keeper for them to use at school.

I used this Minecrafter font for their names and I’m happy to share the Creeper Face svg file.

I recently went to my High School Reunion & wanted to show my school spirit!  I cut these out of vinyl & they lasted all night long and were easy to remove the next day! 

Vinyl decals on my thumb & finger.  If you want to keep nail decals on for a little bit you can seal them with a clear coat of polish.

Vinyl decal on the back of my car. If you want to keep one of these on for a while be sure to use outdoor vinyl.

Scrappy Deals on Zulily

zulily

Zulily offers daily deals on some fantastic brands - up to70% off!  They don't have a warehouse full of items  - from what I understand they hold the sale, place orders & then ship the items out after they receive them.  So, if you need something really quick this may not be the best spot for that.
You do need to sign up for a free account with Zulily.  Once you do that you can earn credit for referring friends.
If you don't have an account yet you can sign up here using my referral link (thank you!)
Something to keep in mind - when you place a standard order with paid-for shipping any other orders placed that day will qualify for free shipping.

Looking for Creative Memories product?

LOTS of people are looking for pages to go with their albums, or albums to go with their pages! Ebay is filled with lots of listings but some of those prices are just outrageous!  Most consultants that I know that have extra CM product aren’t looking to gouge anyone – they just want to unload it at a fair price.  So – if you’re looking for product or have extra to get rid of there is good news!

There are a few places on Facebook set up to connect buyers & sellers of CM product.  I’ve listed a few of these below.  Please read the guidelines/rules for each group – they are all a little different and by following these you’ll help out the groups Admin(s ).  Enter into transitions at your own risk.  I’ve only heard of a small number of transactions not working out but it’s always a possibility.  It’s always a good idea to purchase insurance just in case something goes wrong on the other end! 

You’ll need to request to join each group – and the admins will add you as they can.  Please be patient, they’re seeing a lot of new activity lately!

CM Product Going Going Gone!   - https://www.facebook.com/groups/433920486715660/

Home of Swap/Trade CM Products - https://www.facebook.com/groups/573244792711516/

SCRAPBOOK BARGAIN BASEMENT RESALE - Not CM Specific - https://www.facebook.com/groups/384633068314625/

There is also a “secret” group on Facebook called Creative Memories Garage Sale.  You need a member of the group to add you and then the Admin will need to approve your request to join. If you would like to be added to this group I am happy to do this – but will need your email address. Please email me  and put “CM Garage Sale” in the subject line. 

Good Luck!

World Autism Awareness Day Blog Hop

Today is World Autism Awareness Day - a cause near & dear to my heart.   My oldest son, Richie, has Asperger's - or ASD as it's now called. My favorite way I've seen Autism described is that it's not a processing error - it's a different operating system.   Smile 

There is a great blog hop going on in honor of WAAD - here's a link to the first page. Lots of great freebies & information! 

I used content from Winks Art Graphics & Sweet Pea Designs to put this together this – Feel free to print or share it if you like.
