Hockey Family-Cricut Style

You may or may not know that we are a hockey family that doesn’t play ice hockey! 😂We watch hockey. We play street hockey. We play knee hockey. We talk hockey. We collect hockey cards. We talk stats! We love the stats! My boys DO however play ball hockey which is basically, hockey off ice!

Every season has playoffs, hopefully ending in a trip to the medal games. We have made it to the medal rounds a few times before but have always come up empty. The one constant in our playoffs is the t-shirts that I wear to cheer on my teams! For the past few seasons I have used my Cricut Explore Air 2 to cut and design my t-shirts. I used my Cricut Easy Press to press it.

Here are some of my past t-shirts. As you can see our teams have been the Grizzlies and the Wolves.

Again we are on the Grizzlies and Wolves but last playoffs I only made one Wolves shirt because both boys ended up on Wolves team but in different age groups. This time I needed another Wolves shirt to wear so I made this one for me.

My younger son wanted to get in on the T-shirt action so we made him this one which he will proudly wear this weekend to his brother’s games.

Unfortunately our team drew the short straw so we have a game at 7am on Sunday morning! 😴 I made a shirt for the occasion! I love this shirt so much that I will be wearing it a lot even when we aren’t in playoffs!

I love using my Cricut Explore Air 2 and Easy Press. It gives us the flexibility to create what we want, when we want it! You can bet that as long as my boys are playing ball hockey I will be making playoff shirts!

Scrapbooking

12 Month Journey Of Craftiness

I love to make things! I know you have heard it from me before but lately most have my crafting has been for others. I have decided that the new year will bring a renewed love of crafting just for me. I realized that since July most of my projects have been for others, whether it be custom orders or gifts.

I made this layout at least a couple of years ago! Notice anything about it? It has no picture! It has been sitting in my To-Do pile for quite some time. This is what inspired my “12 Month Journey Of Craftiness Event on my Facebook page. Scrapatini on Facebook

I hope you will join me and maybe take your own Journey Of Craftiness in the new year! Happy Crafty New Year!

Christmas Cheer-Cricut Made Style

*This post contains affiliate links

So Christmas is just under 10 days from today. All of our actual shopping is done although we are waiting for a few parcels to arrive. I am a little unsure when I am actually going to have time to wrap them though. Our boy’s Christmas lists were a little sparse this year, neither of them are really into toys as they are 10 & 13 years old now. They did ask for a big ticket item each but they also asked for things like movie gift cards to see a couple of movies coming soon. I made the boys some Christmas Eve boxes with a few necessities like chocolate, hot chocolate, socks and more. If I have time I am going to make them some t-shirts with their favourite video games on them.

Since my successful craft sale back in November I have been working on custom orders mostly personalized items. I made some gifts for family, friends, coworkers and neighbours. I use my Cricut Explore Air 2 to cut my designs and if working with htv (iron-on) I also use my Easy Press. These Christmas Pyjama bags and moose were personalized for my boys using both.

If you are looking to treat yourself you can find the Cricut Explore Air 2 & Easy Press here.

Cricut Iron On And More Supplies

Here are a few other Cricut-Made items.

Added the rabbits name to the stocking. Teacher ornaments customized.

I love versatility of using my Cricut. I can cut iron-on to create T-shirts and more, vinyl to put on everything from signs & ornaments to wine glasses. It also cuts paper! (shocker right?)

My favourite thing about making shirts is that I can put anything that my heart (or my son’s heart) desires! We made a Wonder canvas for one of his teachers. He loved it so I made him a T-shirt that was opposite colours of the canvas.

I also make myself shirts to cheer on my boys during their ball hockey playoffs.

Which reminds me that we have one last game before the Christmas Holidays. One of my cubs is playing for a bronze medal this afternoon! Fingers, & toes are crossed that we win! Wish us luck!
