Jack o lantern jars

Image
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.

Polka Dot Christmas Tree

Image
I love this polka dot Chtistmas Tree in silver and gold and white.
The foundation is in white dots and measures approx 11" across at the bottom and comes to a point at 19" tall.  Then additional dots in silver and gold are added in.  This is a fun addition to your holiday decor.  You could do it on a frame or an old window, or even on a glass door! You can buy the polka dot sets from my Etsy shop here

Iron-on Vinyl

Image
One of the things that we love to do with Vinyl is put it on shirts. We have Iron-On Vinyl that makes making a custom shirt easy and affordable to create! Below are a few that I have made for my niece as well as one for my daughter. They turned out great, and wash just as well as normal shirts!
If you would like to create an affordable customized shirt or bag  4 x 5 - $5, 8 x 10 - $10.  When you want a custom item without paying the price of a single custom item at a shirt shop simply drop us a note and we'll help you design something.  There is a listing for the 4 x 5 size in my Etsy Shop

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.

WITCH blocks

Fun vinyl for blocks.  Decorate your blocks with scrapbook paper and then add the vinyl letters.  What a fun Halloween decoration.  Thanks Suni for the finished project photo!  You can purchase the vinyl 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.

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. 

Girls' Night Spring 2010

The girls got together on April 3 while the guys all went to their meeting. We had a fun time crafting spring blocks. It got a little crazy at times, but it was a lot of fun!! I thought I'd share a few photos.

Kelsie and Breanne - joint effort :) Terriann's blocks Jenna's blocks.


Fun Hot Dog Sticks

Image
Here is another customer picture. She was placing an order and had some extra vinyl. We had had them over for a bonfire and she had seen our hot dog sticks. She decided that would be a fun idea for Christmas presents for extended family. Here is how they turned out - CAute!
