“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...]

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...]

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!

DIY “I’m A Proud Father” T-Shirt

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...]

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...]

Cricut Mats 101

Cricut Mats 101

A few months ago I had the opportunity to work the Cricut Booth at the Scrapbook Expo here in Orlando, Florida. One of the questions that I constantly found myself answering was why does my paper stick to my Cricut Mat? By the end of the day I found myself sounding like a broken record. I figured if fellow crafters were asking this question in person then most likely other people (and my Cricut readers) were asking this same question to themselves. Today, I'm going to break down the three … [Read more...]

The Ultimate Wedding Registry Go-To Guide For Every Couple

Wedding Registry go-to guide For Every Couple #TargetWedding

Content and/or other value provided by our partner, Target. All opinions are my own. It's hard to believe that next month will mark 8 years since Jon proposed to me on the island of St. Thomas. Shortly after we were engaged we began to create a wedding registry. We had to quickly put together a registry because my inlays graciously threw us an engagement party. We both lived at home and were planning on moving in together just before we got married. We had nothing to furnish our first … [Read more...]

DIY “Hello My Name Is” Shirt

Hello My Name Is Onesies

I made this "Hello my name is" shirt almost a year ago. Hard to believe. Since then, I've been making them as a gifts and I've made a few larger sizes for my son since I love the shirt so so much. Everyone was predicting I was going to have a big baby. Little did they know or I know that I actually had a very small baby (6lbs 9oz). I only packed 2 items that were newborn size the rest were size 1-3 months. The "hello my name is" shirt happened to be a size 1-3 months. I was determined for it to … [Read more...]

5 Ways to Prepare for Cold & Flu Season

5 Ways to Prepare for Cold and Flu Season

I am a Filtrete Brand blogger ambassador and was compensated for this post, but all opinions and selection of additional products used in this project are my own. The dreaded cold and flu season is here. Jon has been sick on and off for the past few months, and somehow Ryder and I escaped the nasty colds he has had. It finally crept up on me last week, and I'm slowly recovering. The stomach bug and colds are going around at a few of the mommy and me weekly meet-ups Ryder and I attend. No … [Read more...]
