growth chart

 today we are using our cricuts to make  a GROWTH chart! Yippe.  I’m somewhat obessed with them…and have been hoarding ideas on what to do. I didn’t want to do one on a wall (we rent) cause i didn’t want to be like the new karate kid (with will smith’s boy) and have to leave it on my wall….

so I knew I wanted one on a board…and saw this one and loved it


now…correct me if i’m wrong..but i think this is pottery barn
anyways…I thought the ruler idea was awesome…so I went for it….

I got this awesome piece of wood from my dad’s hoarding collection ( i had to get my hoarding obsession from SOMEWHERE.)..i think it’s old flooring cause it has a groove to just snap tthe next piece into place…(which I thought looked just like a ruler)

and I added some awesome stain from americana….
but you have to go HERE to the diy club to see the how to’s on that….

i’ll wait until you get back…..

alright..welcome back.

okay..now that you have seen the pretty board…let’s add some vinyl.

alphalicious….cut out the 1-6 with black vinyl…

then I took my george cartridge and all my awesome colored vinyl from

seriously..love this place.

and cut out some circles…

then I just measured them out and stuck some vinyl on.

I just took strips of black vinyl and stuck them on.
and there you have it.

make sure to mark it up…

oh, I forgot. my son wanted to measure woody….must be in the toy story movie…
