“Home of the Brave” Patriotic Cake Topper

Home of the Brave Cake Topper

Get ready to wow your guest with a super simple cake topper. This "Home of the Brave" Patriotic Cake Topper is easy to make and thanks to the Cricut you can make it in minutes! I always think of vinyl as just something I adhere to the walls, windows, furniture and more. But I always forget that another great way to use it is on paper. No need to cut paper and run it through an adhesive runner. Instead you can just cut vinyl and adhere it directly on the paper. Some people are afraid to use … [Read more...]

Patriotic Printable

I love My Freedom I love my America Free Downloadable Printable

  I'm so excited to share this gorgeous patriotic printable today! My dad served in the United States Navy for 20 years. He sacrificed so much of his life to our country. He served during the Gulf War. He missed precious time with our family. Was deployed to sea just 2 days after my brother was born. He missed countless holidays, birthdays and "first" events for my brother and I. He was and always has been so incredibly proud of not only his service but of his country. The freedom we … [Read more...]

USA Mini Bunting Banner

usa mini bunting banner 5

Get ready for the cutest mini bunting banner around. I got the idea for a USA mini bunting banner after making a mini bunting banner for Ryder's 1st Birthday cake. For his cake I secured the mini bunting banner to paper straws. But for this bunting banner I just secured it to the picture frame using a little tape.  On 4th of July I plan to adhere the bakers twine to paper straws and stick it in a cake! Whatever way you want to display the USA mini bunting banner is up to … [Read more...]

My patriotic heart beats red, white, and blue

Today, I'm sharing this hip and funky My Patriotic Heart Beats Red, White, and Blue free downloadable printable! 4th of July is NEXT weekend. How the heck is that possible. We are officially at the half way point of the year. I feel that we typically don't decorate in the summer months. Maybe because we are mentally preparing ourselves for Halloween. But either way I want to start changing that. Especially since we now have Ryder. I want him to know about all the holidays we celebrate each … [Read more...]

DIY “My Dad Rocks” Onesie

My Dad Rocks Onesie

I whipped up a quick onesie for Ryder so that he can show his love for "dada" on Father's Day! I used a existing image found in the Cricut Design Space library and then added the "my" text. Like I said, super simple to do and "dada" loved it when he saw him wearing it for the mini photo shoot!  The best part is that I can add a few of the photos from our mini photo shoot into Jon's Father's day journal for this year! Supplies: Cricut Explore Cricut Design Space Cricut Iron-On … [Read more...]

DIY I'm A Proud Father T-Shirt

Father's day is this weekend. I hope you've made something for the special father in your life. If not. I have you covered. I created the cutest phrase and ironed it on to a t-shirt. Perfect shirt for any dad. Jon loved the shirt and couldn't stop laughing at it. Specifically the part about "his mom making the shirt". It's definitely what I would do, and he doesn't expect anything less. Make sure you download the image so you can upload it into Cricut Design Space and make this shirt … [Read more...]

How To Apply Vinyl To A Coffee Table + $100 Giveaway

Because Every Picture Has A Story Vinyl on Coffee Table

This post was created in partnership with Snapfish. All opinions are my own. I recently had the chance to give our formal living room an update thanks to my friends at Snapfish! Our formal living and dining room has always been the "last" room to be decorated. The first few years it was kind of a dumping ground for everything we had but couldn't find a place for. Our formal living area also consisted of all sorts of random free furniture we received from friends and family including a … [Read more...]

Free Downloadable Father’s Day Believe Printable

Free Downloadable Father's Day Believe Printable

Ever since getting my subscription to GraphicStock and getting Photoshop back in my life I finally started to make some fun printables. I found this quote while searching the web and felt like it was the perfect Father's Day quote. I wanted to make a printable to display in our house to remind Jon just how important he is in Ryder's life. Just the other day Jon mentioned that Father's Day is a holiday made only to make dad's feel good about themselves. Mother's Day is a legit holiday. I beg to … [Read more...]

DIY Father’s Day Journal

DIY Father's Day Journal 6

Make dad a DIY Father's Day Journal and write in it every year in leu of cards. He can look back and read it for years to come!  I got this idea last year before I celebrated my first mother's day. We normally always make each other cards, but let's get real who saves the cards throughout the year? Not me. They stay on my entertainment center for about a month collecting dust and then bam! In the recycling bin they go. So we decided to start a yearly journal that the opposite parent … [Read more...]
