A Cricut Christmas
I made a lot of shirts for Christmas this year using my Cricut and lots of HTV! It's so fun to purchase an inexpensive shirt and make it something special!
Here they are:

TGIF; Thankful Friday #251
Happy Friday and Happy Thankful Friday! This week I'm thankful for living in a small town. And the reason why specifically is because our fire department still escorts Santa around in all our neighborhoods.
I thought I missed him this year but luckily, when we were driving around looking at Christmas lights, he happened to come around!
You don't even know how excited I was to see him. It's our annual tradition!
What about you? What are you thankful for this week? Please share in the comments.

Triangle Pocket Fold Card/Gift Card Holder; November MCK
I was unable to go LIVE for November's Monthly Card Kit but I filmed the process to create the cards. These are cute cards just ready to assemble and hand out to someone. Each kit includes everything you need to create these cards, written instructions with cutting guide & measurements and the FaceBook LIVE event where we create the featured card together. If we finish early, we'll make the second card as well.
I designed the cards using products in my stash and the Cricut for the dies. The cute holiday creatures were from The Bearded Housewife as a free file. Be sure to click over to that site for many cute products!
For step by step instructions on how to put the card together, check out the YouTube process video below. The flat image elf is made into a layered piece but using three same images and cutting and stacking specific items from them. Check out the video for more details:
Here are so photos of all three cards.

TGIF; Thankful Friday #249
Happy Friday and another week to be thankful. In fact, this is probably the one week where everyone is giving thought to what they are thankful for. I'm going to stick to the ordinary this week and let you know that I'm thankful for family and family gatherings.
Thanksgiving is my second favorite holiday due to all the great food but also the togetherness. I'm fortunate that my family is able to gather often during the year, but Thanksgiving is a gathering that we all sit at the table, share our meal and appreciate each other.
I'm thankful for God, prayers from friends & family, the Oncologist team and every other health professional that has been looking over my son and his cancer recovery. Honestly, this is the number one thing that is constantly on all of my family's minds, but we get relief when we hear good news, when we see him slowly improving and staying so strong.
I hope you were able to enjoy some time with family, friends and everyone in between.
I have never created anything for Thanksgiving before, but this year, I decided to make this cute banner giving homage to our favorite Thanksgiving movie. The cut file is from Auntie Tay's membership site. I stopped my membership earlier this year since I hadn't really been using the cuts but thankfully I decided to download this one before I cancelled.
Thanks to all of you that continue to check out my blog, comment and give me encouragement. I love being crafty and this is my place to show off my stuff!

Print and Cut Stickers
I created decals for our family's annual virtual marathon - TomKat Strut - last year and I wanted to continue with this tradition. You can see last year's decal peeking out on the right side. This is our second year for this annual marathon and I'm hoping to continue making decals. You can read more about the Strut HERE.
Check out the YouTube process video to see how easy it is!
