Good Morning…Good Afternoon

For some reason this did not post this morning?

Just a couple of projects that I did lately that anyone with a KNK could do in a heartbeat…it’s why I love my KNK Maxx. The first project is an outdoor address plaque. I had a laminated drawer end from ReStore that was the perfect size but this could be done on any piece of wood. I used a purchased file for the numbers but you could also just use your favorite font for the whole project. And of course it was cut from vinyl which can be purchased from KNKUSA. I like to use outdoor vinyl on my signs because I want a permanent bond.

IMG_2563 My next project was a sixty second quickie. My niece just had her third child, Violet , an adorable little girl. She has a sister who is a few years older so she has plenty of clothes. So for a simple gift that I knew would be used I purchased a case of wet wipes and a single dispenser box that was calling Violet’s name.

IMG_2573 I don’t remember the font used, sorry!  I cut it from vinyl using approx. 40 for pressure. Everyone loves personalized gifts and this is as simple as they come.

My last 2 projects are sports related. I used the Home Depot method of ordering my wood and having them cut it to size and spray painted the wood white with Rustoleum 2X painters choice paint. I found a free vector image of a Hawk and cut all images from vinyl using my KNK Maxx.

Happy First Birthday!

A customer sent me this picture from Pinterest and wanted to know if I could duplicate it using vinyl for her daughter’s first birthday photo session. Yikes…I should be able to do this, right? So I grabbed one of my trusty cabinet doors from ReStore and painted it black using Rustoleum painters 2X  spray paint…took about 5 minutes including the search for the right sized door. Designing took a bit longer. I always struggle picking out the right font, and then organizing everything so it fits properly. But I love KNK Studio and how it allows you to design awesome projects with ease!

IMG_2251 The whole project was made using vinyl available at  KNK USA. Using my KNK Maxx I usually use around 40 pressure for cutting vinyl.

Another simple Pinterest project was a crayon case to keep in your purse to keep the little ones occupied away from home. It called for a plastic soap container crayons and a post it pad.  You put the post it pad on one side of the case and crayons in the other and they have an instant art kit away from home. Well, the soap container I bought was too narrow for a post it pad but I thought crayons were better than nothing. :O) I used my KNK Maxx to cut the grandkids names and put them on the holder.
