I love my Cricut machine so much. I am the most fond of doing projects using the vinyl which comes in rolls. It can be kind of a headache to unroll, lay on the mat, roll back up, store… I buy the rolls of vinyl whenever I see them on sale or clearance and after a while they started stacking up and looking like a mess in my craft room cabinet. Last time I walked by the scrapbook aisle though, an idea hit me – cut and store the vinyl in a binder. I can’t wait to show you!
It’s my favorite little guy’s 1st birthday and I cannot believe it’s already been a year since he was born! Zachary is my close friend, Kristi’s, son! When Zach was born I worked long and hard on a stuffed Hobbes for him since that’s his dad’s favorite comic. Wanting to stick with that theme, I decided that we would get Zach a Radio Flyer for his 1st birthday, which I bought on Amazon along with the awesome book, Friday My Radio Flyer Flew, by Zachary Pullen!! I envisioned Calvin and Hobbes decals all around the wagon, unfortunately I did not have a device that would let me upload my own images…so on to the next idea! Zach’s 1st birthday theme is dinosaurs so I knew that I could put dinosaurs all around the wagon.
I love vinyl because in no time you have a completed craft and something cute to show off! I bought these 22lb Pet Food Containers from The Container Store when they were having a sale. We have two cats and two Scottish Terriers and one of our cats is a bit on the heavy side so I knew these containers would be hard and hopefully impossible for her to topple over and break into. You may be laughing, but I’m being completely honest! Since I bought two of the same container I needed to differentiate the two so that it was easier to tell who’s food you’re getting. Insert quick vinyl project here!
Good Morning! Happy Valentine’s Day!
Today, I’m sharing the thank you signs that I made for my wedding thank you cards! I saw several different ways to do this on Pinterest and intended on using rectangle shaped plaques until I found these scalloped ones at Michaels!
Today I’m sharing the personalized tumblers that I made for my destination wedding guests. I put these inside of their Welcome Bags that I made and was surprised by how much my guests loved these, my dad is still using his years after our wedding. I got the idea for this from a past vacation my husband and I took, I read many reviews and found that bringing a large cup that keeps drinks cold is a commodity at all inclusive resorts and quickly went out to buy some Tervis’. For my wedding I wanted guests to be able to use something that would have them stand out as being part of our wedding party and to be a fun reminder of their trip.
I am so excited to show you my antique window sign. I found an old antique window at an antique store for $10.00. I had never seen one so small before and I liked the look the black paint around the inside edges gave it. It kind of looks like smoke damage. I think it adds to the character of it. Antique/old windows are EVERYWHERE right now and are the hot home decor piece to have. They will be easy to find if you decide you want one, too.
Today I want to share a gift that I made for one of our couple friends that got married a few years ago. I found this idea on Pinterest here. Let me just start by saying that this craft was a lot easier than I expected it to be!! I etched their last name into the glass for a practical casserole dish they could take to parties and ensure they would get back.
