Not sure how it got to be the end of June already! I have so many things I want to do this summer and it seems like the only things that are getting done are the day to day things that need to be done.
This is the time of year that people want teacher gifts, graduation gifts and wedding gifts. I have been busy making all of the above. Living in Wisconsin agriculture is huge and it is a course taught at our local high schools. This was a request for a favorite ag teacher.
The barn yard was a silhouette I found online and converted to a KNK file. I added the teacher’s name to the barn to make it personalized.
It was a simple matter of sanding and staining the wood and letting it dry. I like to let stained wood set as long as possible so I try to have popular sizes stained ahead. I then just chose my fonts and typed the saying. I believe I used magnolia sky for ag teacher. I cut black vinyl and transferred it to the board using clear transfer tape. Not complicated and what a wonderful gift!
https://burtonavenue.com/blog/ has tons of free files, she send out new files almost every day. They are free for personal use but you can buy a commercial license at a reasonable price if you decide to make items and sell them.
I’m all about keeping it real so I’m going to show you my failure. But first, I’m going to show you what I finally ended up with:
I ended up using some of the 12×12 chipboard from KNK USA and gluing some print paper I had and inked the edges. Then I cut the quote out in white vinyl and stuck it on.
Easy, Quick and fun.
Now for the failure:
I cut the image out and reverse weeded it and then stuck it on 8×8 canvas. I used acrylic paint and a foam brush and dabbed the paint on. when I peeled the vinyl off, I was left with this. I was ready to cry because it took me forever and what was in my mind was definitely not what I created.
I’m not sure what I did wrong, but I was very disappointed that it didn’t work.
Any suggestions, please let me know. I’ll have to go to my good friend Google and see what she says (yes. Google is a girl in my mind!)

I apologize for being late. I’ve been sick for three days. Finally seem to be on the mend so I was able to get into my craft room.
I know. I did a teacher thank you card last month. But then my favorite “go to” site www.lovesvg.com posted this design and I knew I had to use it.
I cut it out in red and green vinyl and reverse weeded it (and even used the hearts! It was easy, quick and done in no time at all. That’s my kind of card. These are 4.25 x 5.5 cards. I’m thinking I need to give one to my substitute today. Apparently my fish tank picked today of all days to overflow.
