Jack o lantern jars

Craft day at my house with my girls.  Simple craft that turned out really cute.  We cleaned out empty jars along with the lid.  Then we added the faces cut out of vinyl.  Add some candy corn and you have a cute fall decoration.

Grandkids make life grand - customer photos

I had another customer send me some photos of her projects.  I love it when customers take the time to send me a picture of their finished project!  It makes my day!  These decals can be purchased on my etsy shop HERE.


Growth Charts

Image
Everybody loves to keep track of how much they have grown! This is a great way to keep track of your child's growth because if you move, you don't have to leave the measurements behind. Add a decal to a board and the measurements can move with you. You can paint your board any color you want, or just stain it. The decal comes with lines for every 1" increment with numbers to indicate the feet.

Glass etching stencils

Image
You can personalize your own dishes or make gifts!  These vinyl stencils are cut in reverse so you can put them on the bottom of your glass casserole dishes or pie plate.  Apply etching cream following the directions on the label.  Remove the decal and your design shows on the inside of the dish!  A lot of fun and there are so many options.  My favorite is the Chevron.

Holiday Fun...In August!

Image
So this week I have had some fun creating, not only one holiday craft but two! I guess it was double the fun because I made reversible blocks, Christmas on one side, Thanksgiving or Fall on the other. I got the Idea from Pintrest, but added my own little twist. I didn't just paint the blocks, I decided to use different patterned scrapbook paper and Mod Podge my blocks. 

From the beginning: I bought some paper at our local craft store, I bought the paper that has one design on one side and another design on the other side. This way I didn't have to buy as much paper...I know I am pretty cheap, but it did save me a couple of dollars!! 

When I got home I cut out the paper to fit the blocks, and put them in the order that I wanted them in. After I cut out the Christmas paper I used them as a pattern to cut out the Fall paper. I just traced around them and then cut them. I don't have a paper cutter, but I am sure that would be the easiest way to do it. 

While I was cutting out the…

Thanks for the pictures Suni!!  They turned out so cute.  For info on ordering the vinyl for these cute reversable guys, visit my etsy shop here.


Reversible Frankenstein and Pilgrim blocks!

Vinyl sets for these fun reversible Halloween and Thanksgiving blocks.  The vinyl goes on opposite sides of the same blocks.  So once Halloween is over, simply flip the blocks around and you have a decoration ready for Thanksgiving.  What a fun idea.  You can purchase the vinyl for this fun craft in my etsy shop here.

A Few more Christmas Countdowns

Image
I thought I'd post a few more pictures of some of the fun Christmas Countdown projects.  They are all just a little different, but they each turned out so cute!  




Countdown to Christmas

Image
My daughter made this Christmas Countdown.  She is adding a candy chain to cut off each day of December, as well as number tabs with activities for each day.  Hopefully I will have another picture to add to show the rest of her Christmas Countdown board.  But she did take a picture after she got the board itself done with the vinyl.  It turned out so cute.  She bought the board at Hobby Lobby and mod podged Christmas paper for the background, and then she applied the vinyl decals that I cut for her.  I have the vinyl listed in my ETSY shop.  I am offering it free with a purchase through the month of November.  Or you can just purchase it for $3.50 if all you want is the vinyl for this project.

Masterpieces

Image
My daughter had a friend who saw this idea on a blog A little of this and wanted to make one.  I did the vinyl for her.  She got the boards and painted them and added clips to hang her children's artwork and school work.  I think it is such a cute idea and it turned out so cute.  Thanks for the pictures Sunny!


Scout Shirts

Image
My boys were getting ready to go to Scout Camp.  They wanted a t-shirt they could wear instead of their uniform shirt all the time.  They had a fun time trying to decide on something clever.  Here is the end result.  If you say it quickly . . .





 We used heat press vinyl.  I just use my DRY iron on the highest setting since I don't have a heat press.  It works pretty well.  Simply use a sheet of parchment paper over the vinyl so it doesn't stick to your iron.  If you do two sided shirts, be sure to use a piece of parchment on the reverse side as well! 

I do have a son that doesn't particular like his picture to be taken - thus the headless t-shirt.

Easter Project

Image
I have seen this style of art lately and I really like it.  It's called "Subway Art".  I'm not sure why . . .   Anyway, I had the materials for this setting out for some time - in the middle of getting ready for my daughter's wedding.  So one day, I just sat down and put it together - mainly so I could get it out of the way and hang it on the wall - ha ha.  I did this one on an 8 x 10 board covered with scrapbook paper and "ModPodge".  Then I used lavender vinyl for the words.  Something this size would run $6.00.
Do you have a season or sport or idea you would like made up into "Subway Art".  Send me an email and we'll work something up for you. 

We Believe

The LDS YM/YW Theme for 2011 is the 13th Article of Faith.  I did this 12 x 12 layout to serve as a reminder for the youth of what THEY believe!

Menu Boards

Image
Well, we had our girl's night on October 4th.  I got busy and forgot to take any pictures.  Everybody ended up with some cute boards, but the only pictures I have are the ones I took for the sample picture.  Most of the girls turned their frames sideways - I didn't think of that :)  But you get the general idea anyway.  It was a lot of fun having so many friends over and seeing the different ideas each of them had.

Wipe off Calendar - 16 x 20

Image
I had a request for a calendar to use on the inside of a frame.  She was going to use fabric behind the glass and the vinyl would go on the inside.  If you use dry erase markers, they can be wiped off and then the glass is ready for the new month.  I thought it was a great idea!  It could also be used on the outside of a dry erase board just as easily.

We are going to be making some menu/grocery list wipe off boards for our Girl's night in Ocotober.  I'll post pictures of those when we are done with them.
