Personalized Tumblers

My new craft project this last week was Tumblers!  I have seen these tumblers everywhere, at Starbucks, major retail stores, Hobby Lobby, Walgreens, and many other stores.  Most have some type of logo on them, are double insulated so you can put in hot or cold drinks, comes with a nice plastic straw and can be used over and over again.  I was able to purchase quite a few tumblers and made several gifts and sold several others.  The tumbler says hand wash only but I have heard many people say they use them in the top rack of the dishwasher without any problems.  I used outdoor vinyl in case people decided to use them in the dishwasher and below are my finished personalized tumblers.

The tumblers below say "Grandma's Sippy Cup" and "Linda's Sippy Cup".  The tumblers on the left and right are identical except for the wine glass are different sizes and different colors.  The middle tumbler just says "Linda's Sippy Cup" in bigger letters without any pictures added and in a gold color.  I forgot to add the lid and straw to this picture but you will see it on the next group of pictures for a different tumbler.  

My last tumbler says "I'm a Beautician NOT a Magician" with a comb and scissors on the front.  On the back of the tumbler, it lists the hair dresser's business name and contact information.  I gave this to my hairdresser as a Christmas gift.  Inside of the tumbler I just placed red vinyl to try and take a "decent" picture and to show off the vinyl a little better.

More Christmas Gifts!

Last weekend caught me off guard with the flu bug hitting our house!  Not fun and literally takes all of the energy out of oneself.  We are almost back to normal and I was able to make up a few more Christmas Gifts.  Some of these are similar to other posts but different sayings, layouts, etc...  All fun and relatively easy projects that hopefully the recipients will like!

The cutting board below is from a sign I created for a customer last Summer but thought would look perfect on a cutting board.  The cutting board is 12 x 15 purchased from Walmart and I just cut the vinyl in reverse and placed it on the backside so you do not cut on the actual vinyl.  I used outdoor vinyl so it will hold up to washing better!  

Christmas Ornaments!  Christmas Ornaments!  Christmas Ornaments!  I sold quite a few of these and also made a ton for gifts to our good neighbors, teachers, and several others!  Below are just a few group shots of some of the ornaments I made.  Some of the ornaments has either our son's name or our entire family's name and year on the back with vinyl which I thought gave a nice touch and personalized it a little more. 

For my husband's boss we decided to give her a nice, marble tile for Christmas. 

Cutting Boards

I saw this idea on a craft website and wanted to try it out.  On the craft site, the person went to Walmart and found several sizes of clear cutting boards and placed vinyl on the back side.  By using outdoor vinyl, the cutting board can easily be hand washed on both sides and placed in the dishwasher (but I would only recommend placing it in the top rack).

Luckily, I was easily able to convince someone looking for Christmas ideas to try out my new cutting boards so off I went to Walmart and below is my final product!


Christmas Eye Chart

A customer requested I make a 12 x 24 inch Eye Chart with a little twist.  She did not want a normal eye chart but one that said "I WISH YOU A MERRY CHRISTMAS" over and over again with the last line to say "I WISH YOU A MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR".  This was a little tricky to design to ensure all of the letters fell in the right place and kept with the typical eye chart where the letters decreased in size and spacing as you went further down on the chart.  When finished, I placed a thin red border around the entire chart.  The customer is then going to place this on a 12 x 24 canvas.  I do not have a final picture with the eye chart on the canvas but I do have my final cut design.  It turned out much better then I imagined as when requested this design, I had a few doubts on how the final look would be.

Santa Charger Plate

Today I finished my first attempt on a very popular item - Charger Plates.  A fellow Craft Blogger graciously shared her ginger bread cookie files and the snowflakes I had found previously online for a different project.  With my Charger plate I decided to use 3 different colors of vinyl  and used outdoor vinyl as this plate will need to be washed on occasion. 

Below is my final design:

It was a little tricky to ensure the letters were straight as the font itself is meant to show the letters crooked.  The gingerbread cookies has copper vinyl, the lettering is red and the snowflakes are white.  I have several really nice designs and ideas that I am planning on using for more Charger plates; however, I need to make a quick shopping trip to pick up some silver plates as I think that will look the best for the ideas that I have.  This was a fun project that really changes the appearance of an otherwise, boring display plate!  Check back soon for more Charger plates!
