Traffic Jam Weekend #288

Welcome back to Traffic Jam Weekend! I’m glad you’re here to party with us! Before we get to the features and the party, I’d like to share a few posts from this week with you.

It’s back to school time already, and I love to send a small gift to my child’s new teachers to celebrate the start of a new year. This year I sent a basket full of supplies that teachers often run out of and have to replace out of their pocket during the year. They do not make enough money to have to do that! I put this little gift basket together and added an adorable gift tag to personalize it. In this post I am sharing that free printable with you!

If you are a Cricut user this post is for you. In it I give you an easy to follow, step-by-step guide to create a split letter monogram. These monograms are beautiful and perfect to add to shirts, bags, tumblers and containers, back to school items to allow your child to easily identify their items, and much more. This tutorial is so easy to use, you can do it even if you just took your machine out of the box!

Completed split letter monogram in Design Space. Letter H with Harris written in the middle.
