Name Signs...

Hi everyone! This is Kristy from craftin-on-my-door and I want to thank Sheila for allowing my to be her guest designer again today! I look forward to my monthly She's a Sassy Lady posts!

This month I thought I would show you all a quick and fabulous Christmas gift. A friend of mine needed the help of me and my trusty Cricut to put together some gifts for her family and friends, and I through together a couple too! She started at Home Depot bought some baseboards and had them cut them down for her. Then she painted them and waited for my Cricut's arrival! We cut out each person's last name and "established" with the date they were married. Here's what we came up with...
 We love how they turned out! We made 10 of these to give out as gifts. For the last name I used Plantin Schoolbook and for the established I used the Calligraphy cartridge. Using my Gypsy, E2, vinyl, and a 12 x 24 mat these came together very quickly!

My friend also had some smaller baseboards that she had painted in different colors, so we decided to decorate some of these for teacher and friend gifts.
 For this one I used the Feeling Groovy and Calligraphy cartridges.
 On this sign I used Feeling Groovy and replaced the dot on the i with an asterisk.
 For this sign I used the Something to Celebrate and Calligraphy carts.
Thanks for stopping by today! ♥Kristy
