Couple of quick Friday Freebies











Bugaboostamps have this cute watering can image  up for grabs this week for the Bugaboostamps Freebie Friday .. and be sure to check out all the New Release discounted stamps too.

Easy Chalkboard Vinyl humorous signs

I needed a break from cleaning up and had a play with some fun signs.. nothing major, just some fun signs with some fun images. I popped a square piece of Cohas Adhesive Chalkboard Vinyl onto an 8×8 wood canvas/blank and added some of the fun images I got from CraftsUPrint designer Gordon Fraser.  These were watercolored using Gansai Tambi paints  and H2o brushes on Canson Mix Media Paper.

It’s really easy to  swap images in and out…. if you don’t want to keep a permanent image on it, just use a 2 way temporary bond glue.  Great way to make motivational signs for yourself, or other family members.  I just  wrote on mine with blue and white Zig wet wipe Chalk Markers, which cleans right off with a wet rag. You could of course use a more permanent pen which they also  make, that comes off with window cleaner.  I deliberately didn’t prime my chalk pens, to keep it more  rustic and not so intense.

This vinyl comes in 12×12 sheets, or pre-cut labels in various shapes.  I like the 12×12 sheets  because I can cut this on my Cricut Explore if I want something a bit fancy and also write on it on my Cricut.. because let’s face it, my handwriting sucks haha…. or pop it in a 12×12 Scrapbook page frame if I want something bigger.  I have the labels too and they are awesome for  labeling jars etc with my lil man as gifts.. lots of fun shapes.

When I want a more permanent sign, I confess I usually  run it through my Cricut first to add the text..

CraftsUPrint Treasure Chest Bonus packs project, Vault and Friday Freebie

Some of you may have seen me post previously about the Treasure Chest items I got free with one of my  cut file orders. CraftsUPrint are actually mailing these FREE when you order over £15 ( currently on offer at £10 ) worth of files or card kits.  I have to be honest I wasn’t expecting them to be that great quality, cmon..it’s free right  lol.  But when they arrived I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the  sheets..AND the size.  I wasn’t expecting full A4 sheets either.. 15 of them.. and you get to choose the designs you want.

If you missed  my previous post, you can find details below

My Treasure Chest Freebies arrived…. impressed !




Well last night I finally had a moment to sit and play with them… and I made my son some fridge magnets for his word wall.. which incidentally is one side of my upright freezer lol. It’s situated near the dining room table so always in view of him when he is eating or playing.. mommy’s subtle way of keeping him learning no matter what he is doing.










He spends a lot of time playing with Playdoh or coloring etc at the table.. and of course it’s a great way for him to “earn ” snacks during the day.  If you missed previous posts about the Cohas Magnetic sheets (formerly known as ZiggyBoard) I use to make his  wall.. I added some of them to some cheap wood cut circles and some of them I just added the Magnetic strip straight to the back of them.
Now the link is to the commercial product, what I am actually using is what are referred to as “tails” and “seconds” so anyone who is interested in buying some of these for projects, let me know. These are perfect for making magnets, and letter walls and using as small magnetic chalkboards. I have allsorts of projects on the blog using this stuff and I love it (search magnet, or Ziggy on the blog). It cuts like a dream on my Cricut Explore, by hand, my paper cutter, My Sizzix Big Shot… so very versatile and lots of fun to be had. I also used it to hang my metal dies for easy grabbing.. LOVE this stuff.



Well CraftsUPrint also just added a new video about the treasure chest, so I figured I would add that in for anyone interested.  If you have kids who like to craft, or you want some fun card or project toppers.. check them out.  I grab a set every time I buy new cutfiles.. in fact, I’m off to get more when I finish up this post as I see some fun new cut files I need to grab.  These are great for  projects with my 4 year old too as the Treasure Chest also includes sticker sheets.

They have added in lots of new items too, check out the contents of the current Treasure Chest right now not only can you get access to the treasure chest with a £10 order, you also get access to the vault for 24 hours.. and that is filled with freebies too. Lots of great card kits.. and they are all yours.. you have 24 hours to grab them for free.

Right now.. these are part of the vault collection.. which includes card kits, toppers and digital papers

Humorous Christmas Card ..getting ready for 2017

This is a Bugaboo Stamps Friday Freebie, if you didn’t grab it..you still have a few days left to get it before the new Freebie comes out.  It’s called “Winter Penguin Trio”  I am still playing with Christmas images… nothing like getting a head start on next 2017 cards lol.

I knocked up a super quick and simple card. It’s just a single fold on an 8.5×11 sheet of Black card, the image was printed on Canson mixed Media and colored with Chameleon pens. I added the inside sentiment to the bottom of the photo, just so you get the intended humor.  The image is foam popped on a sheet of Darice foam and the sentiment is a die cut from a Momenta die I picked up on clearance at Hobby Lobby last week.  I cut it on black card then rewrote the sentiment with a Zig Chalk Pen.  Tore up the edges and sponged on a blue ink edging.bug_penguin_trio

Supplies:

Recollections 65lb card -Black
Canson Mixed Media Paper 7×10
Chameleon Pens
Zig Chalk Marker Dual tip – white
Momenta “Believe” die – Hobby Lobby clearance
Craftsmart Dye Ink Pad  –  Light Blue
