Lego Club Competition, a great time to pull out the KNK

Hello, my name is Chris Durnan, I am a cutting machine addict. Since my first one years ago I have been through a few different machines. I am the proud owner of a KNK Maxx. Can I say I know many see this machine and think “oh nice machine”. And some even say so. I look at this machine and I see happy sparkles floating all around. I love my KNK. I express it here because when I go on and on some might think I am crazy, but I know I am among good company when posting here.

I was invited to guest post on the Team KNK site today and I chose one of my biggest undertakings to share. Many don’t know this, but I am also the assistant coach for the Lego Club at my son’s school. This means I run the paperwork, announcements and get to make the sign for competition. Last year we were short on time and I offered to take over this endeavor and had some help from a friend. We stretched this sign across the floor of a classroom and started glueing and glueing. I used mixed media to create this huge banner. I believe it was 24 ft long. This was also a fantastic way to use up some of the paper in my craft room. I cut cardstock and vinyl. I did the words, lego shapes  and you can see the Lego under the word Jr. It was a fantastic day.

My son is the one in the cowboy hat grinning from ear to ear wearing his Lego Team shirt. This was also created by the Coach of the Lego Club. She used iron on vinyl cut on a digital cutter. Just Awesome. Look at all you can do with a digital cutter. I love my KNK Maxx.

I hope you find inspiration in this post . Initially, I was overwhelmed at cutting so many letters and could I make it look good. It was out of my usual style of designing, but I am very proud of it and what it represented. I think my son was too. He had quite the grin and did a great job at his first competition!

Have a wonderful day!
