Keep Calm and Carry On - knock offs

I saw a "Keep Calm and Gobble On" poster (which is free to print if you want one - here) and definately wanted one . . . but I'm out of colored ink in my printer, so I opted for the next best solution - cut it out on my Cricut and glue it to some brown paper!
I still like the original better at Craftily Ever After, but this works as an alternative.
I also did another version on a huge canvas (20"x30") for my sister-in-law to put in her classroom (she's a teacher and their mascot is the sailors)  She found a picture of one she liked and then I spray painted the canvas and cut the boat and letters with my Cricut.  I don't know where she found the original idea for this one, but I think it was on Etsy ... 

I love these "keep calm and ..." posters.  They are everywhere in blogland and on etsy.  The possibilities are endless with different versions.


  1. Serena these are so fun!! I love the always telling myself to Keep Calm!

  2. I love these too! Maybe I ought to ask for a cricut for Christmas, since everything seems sooo much easier and with more possibilities if you have one.
    Nice of you to do something for your sister too!

  3. Your way is awesome because it's the only one exactly like it!! :)
