Covered Notebook Gift Idea using Graphic Skinz


This post is sponsored by RoseArt. All opinions are my own. How many of you out there have kids that love any kind of paper or pens they can get their hands on?  Anytime I bring a notebook in my house I have to preface if it is mine, without sharing, or if they can use them.  Nine times out of ten I lose the notebook battle right away. So when I got to try out Graphic Skinz from RoseArt, I knew the best gift I could make would be a fun notebook and pen set.  Not only for my  girls, but as gifts for their friends.  I’m excited to share with you how you and your kids can make your own, or tons of other fun projects. First off, we opened up the box and I read all the instructions.  It is super simple and it comes with projects so you can start right away. For my notebook, I used a [Read More…]

Handprinted Chalkboard Ornament Hack


My favorite part of my Michael’s Dream Tree is these handwritten ornaments. I love them, and I love how easy they were to make. My sister has killer handwriting to I asked her to do the writing. I digitized the files and uploaded them as .svg files to Cricut’s Design Space and cut them out of white vinyl on my Cricut Explore. To upload an svg in Design Space click on the Upload image, chose vector upload and then insert it. That’s all!   I’d love to share the .svg files so you can make your own!

Thankful Tree with Silver Leaves

sm thanful tree

This year…our family made a thankful tree.  I love how is is displayed on our mantle and can’t wait to show you how we made it! Using my Cricut Explore, I cut these tiny intricate silver metallic leaves. Aren’t they adorable!  I watched in amazement!  That machine is brilliant! Using a thin point permanent marker…each family member wrote what they were grateful for on 5 leaves.  I loved hearing what each of us were grateful for.  Love how this time of year helps us remember that.  We displayed it on our mantle this month as a reminder to continue on with gratitude…”in all things” You can download my free tree printable below…and add thankful leaves!  This was such a fun family activity!

Thanksgiving Hostess Gift Idea


Are you hosting Thanksgiving this year?  I know that a lot of time and hard work go into making this meal the best of the year.  I rarely host, but know that the hostess deserves a gift for everything she puts into this day. That’s why I decided to make a special gift for our hostess this year. I found this tin at the Target dollar section and had to have it.  They had a few colors and I chose black because I wanted to use a gold Painters to accent it. I jumped into my Cricut Design Space and found this fun one that is a “Make It Now” project.  I chose it and then chose the “Make it My Own” option so I could alter it to what I wanted.  I deleted the 4 extra layers and then cut it out on heavy card stock so I could use it as a stencil. I took my Elmer’s Painters [Read More…]
