Project Life:Just Add Color

Project-Life-Just-Add-Color

I’m falling in love with Project Life by Becky Higgins…I first began using Project Life this year.  It’s a great way for me to scrapbook memories/photos quickly and still add all of the cute goodness!  I love the new Just Add Color kit.  What excited me the most about this kit, was the new square format, perfect for those square instagram photos.  Since my instagram account records my day to day memories, I couldn’t wait to print the pictures and add them to our photo albums. I wanted to make a few pages of our Summer instagram photos.  I love the square cards, and the happy, bright colors! The stickers included in the kit are “to die for” as well!  I loved using the pennant stickers! I made my layouts using mini instagram pictures printed 2×2 and larger ones printed 4×4.   I focused these layouts on our summer events and adventures. I used some of the 2×2 cards to [Read More...]

10 Minute Super Hero Costume

Super Hero Costume

My 4 year old was invited to a dress up birthday party a while ago. Although we have a drawer full of costumes to choose from, he wanted to be a super hero. A real super hero. No amount of talking was going to get him to go as a pirate or dinosaur. The instruction he gave me were, 1. An L on the back of the cape 2. A mask 3. Arm bands With these instructions, I did what any mom in a hurry would and I turned to Google. I found this instruction for a superhero mask, and this one for superhero arm cuffs, as well as this one for shoe wings. I pulled out some leftover orange Naugahyde (which was remnants of a Halloween costume years ago), silver iron-on vinyl from Cricut, and grabbed a cape that has been floating around the house and we set to work. Because I figured it would be faster (hello, no [Read More...]

Glammed up Pumpkins

sm pin pumpkins

  It’s time to start thinking about fall decor!  I LOVE fall…and my kids can’t wait for Halloween.  When I received these pumpkins from Michaels, I knew I wanted to get a little fancy.  I decided to get some fancy trimmings from Michaels to glam them up a bit.  I love spending my time decorating these foam pumpkins (they look so real) because they will be good next year and the next!! On my list:  Ribbon (with glitter polka dots). web coasters (to die for cute), sticky rhinestones, other ribbon, fancy webbing runner for my table (found by the baking section of Michaels), sparkly spiders & rubber bats (a touch for the kids!) Below I will show you how I glammed up my 3 pumpkins! PUMPKIN 1:  Black Pumpkin.  Using a clear adhesive runner, I applied ribbon to the sided, following the pumpkin creases.  And using the self-stick gems (above) I made jewel lines in the creases alternating big and [Read More...]

Girl’s Camp: Johnny Lingo’s 8 Cowgirl

SONY DSC

This summer I was able to help plan our church’s girls camp for the 12-18 old girls in our area. The adult leaders worked with the youth camp leaders to plan a 4 day camp. Our YCL’s thought having a cowgirl themed camp sounded like a lot of fun. So the adult leaders set to work coming up with a way to tie the cowgirl theme into a learning and spiritual experience for everyone. Our leader had the idea of basing camp on Johnny Lingo’s 8 cow woman. If you’ve never heard of Johnny Lingo you can watch the original movie, or enjoy the newer movie on Netflix or Amazon. After we explained Johnny Lingo to the YCL’s they were excited about being “8 COW-Girls” so we ran with it. After watching either movie you would probably think a tropical island theme would be the no brainer way to go, but we had a lot of fun using it in [Read More...]

BUILD A Children’s Arbor Bench-ANA WHITE

Arbor-Bench-pinners

This was such a fun project.  It’s always fun building projects from Ana White’s website, plans for the bench found HERE on Ana’s site.  Until I found her, building stuff with wood was just a dream of mine that I would think about frequently.  I would look at furniture and wonder how it was done, or wondered what tools I would use.  When I found here site, I built Q’s Blue Play Kitchen, and Q’s Doll High Chair and a handful of other fun projects that I will share in the future.  Today I will be sharing how I cut the arch, and if you are lucky you will hop on over to Ana’s site and see the building plans.  ANA YOU ARE A GENIUS MY DEAR!! So I KNOW you will want to know where I got this LOVELY fabric….because I was DYING over it when I found it.  I purchased this fabric at Quilter’s Haven in Woods Cross, UT during [Read More...]
