Tag Archives: ideas for “Keep Calm and . . .”

A Fantabulous Goodie for a Fantabulous Crafter!

Happy Wednesday!  I am safe to now share a project I made for one of my fellow Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog Design Team members, Janea over at Recollection Alley.  She just received this little display card that I made to coordinate with her craft room.

I love the “Keep Calm and . . .” sentiments that are all over Pinterest right now and I went with that theme and customized it with our mutual fondness and passion for the green little bug!  She loved it and has it now displayed in her craft room.

Thanks for sharing a piece of “keep calm and Cricut on” pie with me.

Fantabulous Cricut Blog Challenge #124- Olympics (Sports Theme)

I have been off the crafty bloggin’ radar lately, but I have been far from off the craftin’ radar!  I have been logging quite a few hours in the ol’ craft studio working on various projects from my little one’s birthday party, a baby shower I made center pieces and a banner for and today’s fun project for Fantabulous Cricut Challenge.

I am competing in a triathlon relay course at the end of September with two of the hub’s co-workers.  My responsiblity in the race is to swim 1 mile in the ocean.  Thankfully, I have done this triathlon in full about 11 years ago, so I am familiar with the swim course. That does not take away a bit of the pre-race jitters and worries of things that could go awry while in the water… Jaws and leg cramps! 🙂

I made this count down sign to remind me of my pending race and also to “Keep Calm and Swim On”.  I have been seeing these type of sayings all over Facebook and Pinterest and thought this would be a fun sport related project that meets cute trendy!  If you are wondering what the black square is, it is chalkboard vinyl I got through  LOVE THEM! Super reasonable in price and fun to work with.

Now head over to FCCB and get inspired to create something “fanntabulously” sporty!
