What did you do on Labor Day? After sleeping in, I made cute labels for my kitchen canisters and recorded a video while doing it; cleaned and organized the garage with my hubby; enjoyed Chicago Style beef hot dogs grilled at home; wrote two blog posts; and soon I’m going to soak my tired feet and go to sleep.

I’ve had these cute canisters in my kitchen for a year, and I’ve wanted to label them for so long. I waited until I got lots of colorful vinyl for my Cricut last Christmas… and then I changed my mind and decided I wanted to make labels from chalkboard paper but didn’t get around to it until today! The cards and scrapbooks I make are always for other people, so I rarely take the time to make things for my home. These are the only other two projects I’ve made for myself and our home:

Here is my video about how I made labels using the new Artbooking Cricut cartridge from Close to My Heart. It was so easy and you can make them, too! Enjoy – I hope this inspires your creativity.

About Stephanie Chumbley

Growing up in the shadow of the Space Needle, I loved drawing portraits with a #2 pencil and sometimes a ballpoint pen because I liked the challenge. I collected pens and pencils and enjoyed looking at fonts and logos and replicating them by hand. I was in AP art classes in high school and took some graphic design classes at Seattle Central. While in college, I had a part-time job making signs for Drug Emporium / Longs Drugs with my "Steph Font." In my 20s, I made a lot of invitations for dinner parties and later, when I bought my Cricut Expression electronic cutter in 2008, I started making cards for all occasions. In 2009, I discovered Close to My Heart and enjoyed being my Consultant's best customer... but in May 2011, I finally gave in and became and Independent Consultant. It was a very good decision! :-) Nearly everything I make is given away or sold so others can enjoy some handmade art. I've made over 1,000 cards and projects and this blog serves as a way to share and hopefully inspire others to create projects of their own. Someday I hope to catch up and blog about all the cards I've made.
