ABC’s Blog Hop ~ C

Welcome to the Everything ABC’s Blog hop!

ABC's Blog HopFor this hop we will be featuring the letter “C”.  This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment.  Whatever the crafter has chosen as their “C” element will be featured in their post.

If you have just hopped onto my blog, please start at the beginning at LINDA’S BLOG ~ SCRAPPY THERAPY .  If you just came from Linda’s Blog then you are in the right place.

For my “C” I chose my Cricut and Disney’s Cars Cartridge.  I have been working on my son room since we moved.  He is all boy and loves all cars, trucks and trains.  So I have been working on one wall at a time but I have been cutting vinyl vehicles to decorate his room.  I still had one wall left to decorate.  I have cut all the previous vehicles with my Silhouette but since I got the Cricut Explore I decided to try cutting vinyl with it.  Well it worked like a gem and I got carried away.

It was really a lot of fun putting these together albeit a little tedious.  There were a lot of layers to some of the designs.  Here is a close up to two of the characters.

Growth Chart

I know that I usually post paper crafts; however, I just finished making a growth chart for my son and I just had to share.  I have been wanting to purchase one for a while but I could not find the one I loved.  On Friday morning I got to thinking maybe I could just make one….. So I went to Pinterest of  course to start looking for DIY growth charts.  I was inspired and set off shopping.

I purchased a 10″ X 2″ x 8′ piece of wood that I had them cut to 6′.  I purchased my paint, hangers, wood letters for his name, and wooden cars and trucks.  I had originally planned to just hand paint cars and trucks on the piece but when I saw all the cute ones at the craft stores already painted, I decided to save myself some time.

So the first thing I did was to paint about 4 coats of navy blue paint on the board.  Next I mounted the hangers like so:

I then went a head in hung the wood on the wall.  This way I could mark the feet and inches based on how far it was off the ground, instead of trying to hang it at a very exact height.  Once is was on the wall I took a measuring tape and marked one foot with a piece of vinyl.

Gavin's Growth Chart 3 - Version 2

I used my Silhouette to cut rectangles out of vinyl for the numbers, inch and foot marks. I then took it off the wall and using a measuring tape placed all the tick marks for inches and feet running up the left side.  I then glued the painted letters and cars for a final project.Gavin's Growth Chart 8 - Version 2 (1)
