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!

Team Player-New Design Team

This year has had a great crafty start for me! Back in January I was accepted to the Creative Moments design team and I have received word that I am now a member of the Stamprints design team. Yay! I am so excited for this opportunity!

Progress Made-Challenging Myself

*This post may contain affiliate links. 🙂

I have been trying to make things for myself. It was a sort of New Years resolution . I am working on my 12 Month Journey Of Craftiness. You can follow it on my Facebook page or on Instagram. (#12monthjourneyofcraftiness #scrapatini)

I have specific things that I want to accomplish for myself in a crafty way this year. My goal is to complete the following goals each month:

✅ 2 scrapbook layouts

✅ 4 cards

✅ try at least one new product or technique

✅ complete at least one PHD (project half done)

✅ to have more fun, contests, and interaction with my followers

It is already January 20 and since I have made my journey a priority, I have completed my monthly goal except for finishing a PHD! I am working on that PHD but I have a ways to go to complete it.

The new product that I have tried this month is coloured pencils from Prismacolor. They are amazing, very high quality colouring pencils. They have a great lay down of colour and are very smooth.

The Prismacolor pencils are available here >>>Prismacolor Pencils .

They are currently on a super sale at Blitsy for approximately 87% off! Regular price $93.66 CAD but on sale for $12.49 CAD. *Sale can end at any time so if you want them go get them now!

I have completed 2 layouts. Both are of my terrific and cute sons from our 2014 Hawaiian vacation although I didn’t theme them as vacation layouts. I used some gorgeous Wild Whisper Designs Paper (company from Calgary, Canada! Yay!) and themed them more as a self-esteem layout.

I have also completed several cards and a wine bottle tag.

Have you make a crafty New Years Resolution? Are you taking time to do what you enjoy? Have you made something that you are proud of? Let me know!

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!
