So here are the shirts I just did with HTV for the grandkids. I am sure they will enjoy wearing them. I always wait until the shirts are on sale and then grab a few of them. I added the Rock of Faith to the green shirt before Chester wore it to orientation - it was a hit with all the parents.

I struggled with what container to put the two tiles and easel in, most hid too much of the tile. So was in TJMaxx and saw this great lucite tub...
I am thrilled with this presentation. The orange is dollar store table clothes. Now I only need to shrin wrap and it is complete. FYI, the paper is a certificate for a custom family name tile. I am valuing this basket at 100.00.
This is the first tile I have made for this summer's church picnic. I am also going to include a 'coupon' for a personalized tile with style options of split letter, or monogram with name at bottom. This one started as a purchased file but the letters following Christ were too fine and I kept losing them as I weeded. So I went into SCAL and redid it a bit stronger and shadowed. It worked much better for me then, but I still find the outdoor vinyl to be trickier than indoor vinyl. It is much 'stickier'.
Here is the tile that was 'ordered' from the International Festival. One of my own students was the winner and she and her mom said it would be a Father's Day Tile. Dad is in the Army, so this will be for him. While it looks like the vinyl is brown - it is black. This is a 12 X 12 tile. I created the design in Sure Cuts a Lot.
Made a few vinyl on 12x12 floor tiles as samples for the PTA's International Festival this week. Didn't really want all of them in my own name, so made one for a good friend to pass along to her son and his family. The first is a file from My Vinyl Designer. The 2nd is anabel.alt font and the directions from my online vinyl forums - Thanks Denise Hill!!!
Here are some photos of the birthday group. My GD , Delaney, is in the second row - right side with the pink boa. Foods served where hot raspberry tea, or hot strawberry chocolate (pink) and little tea cakes - raspberry swirled pound cake, chocolate mini-cakes in pink cupcake holders, pink smiley cookies. Napkins were 'found' tea towels (Ross or TJMAXX) and homemade Mazzanti's ice cream (the family business) Decor was pink tulle and 'pearls' in the chandelier and on the table runner.
Used plastic champagne glasses from the dollar store - hot pink and black vinyl and some of the ZEBRA print Duck vinyl (harder to cut for me) used E6000 to glue on the 'pearls' and the studded pink ribbon. Put battery operated tea lights in them. Hope the 9 year olds like them!
Stumbled upon these big black buckets at the Dollar Spot in Target and knew we had the makings for some super bowl decorations. Used SCAL (Sure Cuts a Lot) and my Cricut to deck these bowls. I now need to either find a plastic bag to fit in it --- or simply use them as beer coolers filled with ice. don't trust plastics from China for food storage!!! Cute none the less!!! GO STEELERS!!!
