Fast & Easy Super Bowl Party Invitations

We have a party every year. This year I'm not too excited about the Bowl, as I don't care for either team, so I decided on quick and easy invitations. I ended up really liking them. Maybe a lesson to be learned here???? :lol: 

I cut the top layer of the football in brown (svg file) using my cricut and scal 2
Ran them through my cuttlebug with a fiskars "leather" texture plate
cut 2 white solid football shapes for each invitation.
Adhered the brown football to 1 white football
Did my text in print shop, sizing it to fit within my football shape.
Printed 2 on a sheet of cardstock.
Held that piece up to the light, and centered the white football shapes over the text and taped across the top edge with painters tape.
Ran it back through my printer to get the text onto the shapes.
Used a white brad to fasten the 2 pieces together.

Instant Downloads Now Available

I now have instant downloads for files that you purchase from me.  No more waiting for me to email you the file.   They are listed in the green buttons at the top of the page.  Click on the catagory, and from there just add the files to the cart.  It should be a much easier system.  Please let me know if you have any questions or issues, as I am learning as I go.

I just need to update my blog look, and then hopefully back to crafting as usual!!!!!

Corn Hole Game


Anyway, here is a game we (mostly hubby) made for our nieces and nephews for Christmas. 
just a cell phone pic-terrible quality

 I am so pleased with how it turned out.  I didn't take any real pictures-I forgot!!! 
Here is a picture of one of the boards.  There were two, both the same.
 It was just so crazy here this Christmas. (good crazy) 
 I made matching corn bags, but didn't get pictures of them.  They are just 6" squares....
This is all painted-no vinyl.  I was afraid the vinyl wouldn't hold up.  I made stencils with my cricut and contact paper.
Hubby did an excellent job :0) !!!!!!
My husband made a game for us while he was building, we just need to paint it.
