Super Saturday Craft

First off... let me explain Super Saturday to those who may not know what they are.  I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and a lot of wards in our church have what is called Super Saturday.  Basically it is where a whole bunch of women get together to do crafts on a certain Saturday of the year.  It involves lots of crafting, eating, and chatting.  It is a lot of fun!  You do not even need to be a member to come join in on the fun so if you know a member ask them about it and I am sure they would be happy to invite you to one!

So a couple Saturdays ago my Mom asked if I wanted to come to her ward's Super Saturday.  Of coarse I told her I would love to and signed up for my craft.  I must say that I had a lot of fun!  It was really quite enjoyable and I liked how my project turned out.  Mind you, I still need to put a couple finishing touches on but I think you will get the gist of what it should look like.

So basically it is a Welcome sign you hang by ribbon on your door and you have different tiles for each season, holiday, etc.  Cute right?  All it took for this project was wood, hooks, vinyl, and paint.  Which got me thinking that it would be super easy for all you crafters out there to accomplish something like this of your own.  If you own a Cricut or a Silhouette then you could easily do it!  I hope it adds some inspiration.  I sure had fun putting it together!

1st EVER project with Cam!!!

Oh, Cam, you are my little gentleman. I'll take you to foggy London town 'cause you are my little gentleman... (for some reason Anchorman was in my head)  ha ha!  I know... I am a little crazy sometimes but everyone has some crazy in them right?... says the crazy girl.

Anywhosie... like I said in my previous post, the first project I did was for the hubs.  I feel really bad that I cannot rememeber the name of the font I used on my Mac.  My husband picked it out and I was not paying very close attention as he decided.

**** Pssst:  I think I was secretly letting my brain wander onto what project I wanted to try next.  Shhhh!  Don't tell.  As far as he knows I was giving him my  full attention.  ;o) tee hee!***

Well that is enough rambling from me.  Time to start showing the project I did using Cam.

*** Correction:  Thanks to Krafting Kelly, I now know the name of the font I used.  It is Copperplate Gothic Bold and we made it eight inches wide.  Thank you Krafting Kelly!

We used freezer paper and fabric paint.  There are many you tube videos with freezer paper if you are interested on how to do it.

Well... that is all for today.  Thank you so much for stopping by!

Sigh... LOVE!!!

Well, the news is in folks!

I am completely head over heals in love with Cam!

I do not know how I made it through my crafting life without him!

It has been rather regretful that I have not had more time to craft.  Life just seems to keep going on cruise control with no hope of pit stops or slowing down.  (insert long sigh)  Oh well...  I have much to be thankful for so I guess I really have no room to complain.  I will deal with the little crafting time I have because at least I can fit in some crafts!

I whipped up a quick card while I had a free second in between dinner, laundry, grocery shopping, and dishes.  (Yuck, I know... most of you probably just got that instant feeling of... blllaaaahhhh just thinking the words!)

Anywho... I am sure happy I was able to get a free second to cook up this cute little card.  Tell me to stop talking and start showing already!  ha ha!

It was really simple.  I just used the cute little weather girl and rain cloud from the Lettering Delights website.  I used the print and cut feature on the Silhouette Cameo.  I am quite impressed how simple it makes crafting in a pinch.  When you don't have a ton of time it is nice to know you can still create something so cute!  The cute little sentiment was typed using a free font called, just realize.  Throw in some Paper Trey Ink Paper, Bakers Twine, and cute patterned paper and what you have is a super cute card in less than 20 minutes!

Well, I hope this was fun for you!  I promise there will be more details with Cam and many more projects to come!

P.S. for all you Cricut users that expressed interest in my cartridges last month they are now posted on my etsy shop.  Please stop by and check it out.  The carts are priced at $12 - $15 since they are linked to a Gypsy.  I had too hard of a time trying to sell it all together.

My Cricut Supplies - ON SALE!!!

Alright ladies...

I think I got a little too ambitious and hopeful about how much I could sale all my carts for...

I lowered the prices so please head on over to my Etsy Shop and take a look.  It is a great time to start spoiling yourselves for Christmas!
