Father’s Day Handprint Tree 2013

Fathers-Day-Handprint-Tree

You asked for it and now it's back.  The 2013 Father's Day Handprint Tree! I sure loved giving this to the grandpa's and my husband.  Everyone really loved it.  My girls have so much fun getting their hands painted and then stamping them on the page. I think they could do it all day long.  If you want instructions on how to do it, I wrote it all up on 2012's tree post. I hope that you enjoy it!

Father’s Day Tie

fathers_day_tie

Giving Dad a tie for Father's Day is kind of a no brainer--but this year give him one he'll never forget! A couple year's ago, we started the tradition of having the kids help me decorate a tie for my husband. They proudly give it to them Father's Day morning and love that he puts it on and wears it to church. I think he likes being able to wear it once and then hangs it in his closet with the other Father's Day ties, and there are no questions asked of where it went, or why he doesn't use it like so many of the other creations they give him. This one was super easy. We started with a bargain tie. I found this one for $5 (some years Micheal's sells all white ties just for this), and taped off diagonal stripes using painters tape. The kids painted the lines while I cut out their cute little heads and wording out of iron vinyl on my Silhouette. (Their silhouettes were already done, since that's what we give Grandma for Mother's Day.) Once the paint was dry we ironed the silhouettes … [Read more...]

Father’s Day Hand-print Tree Free Printable

Father's Day Handprint Tree printable

If you've followed this blog for a while you know I am a huge fan of using my kids hand-prints to make gifts and keepsakes.  I saw something similar to this on Pinterest and knew that I wanted to make it. I used one of Crystal Wilkerson's trees from her Funky Fresh Forest Stickers with the leaves removed. Then I put some green paint on my girl's hands and had them stamp the tree.  Super cute, super easy. Here's your chance for a fun Father's Day gift.  Just print this out.  I sent mine to Sam's Club photo as an 11x14, (which is the size I've made the printable).  This way you will have nice spacing for the hand-prints.  Make sure that you turn off the auto color correct.  Your tree will turn out black instead of brown if you don't.  Guess who forgot to do it?  Yup, I did.  But they were nice enough to fix my mistake. :) Here's the finished tree.  My girl's love it and I can't wait to give it away. Here's the link to the Printable. Father's Day tree (Click … [Read more...]

Silhouette Heat Transfer Shirts and Apron

silhouette-heat-transfer-ap

Someone please stop me.  I think I am in love.  I knew that my Silhouette was amazing, but after trying out the Heat Transfer kit, I can't stop thinking about it.  I want to put cute images on EVERYTHING!  I told Nikkala about it and she thinks it might be the hook that comes with the kit.  I have to tell you, that thing is so nice! So first off I wanted to make this apron for my husband.  He smokes meat and sometimes needs to wear an apron so he doesn't get yucky meat juices on him.  Now as much as he likes to don my cute aprons, I figured it was time he had something that was more him. I hope he likes it.  It's going to be a Father's Day gift so don't tell him. ;) I had some room on my heat transfer sheet so I decided to make a Mickey Mouse shirt for my baby and our upcoming trip to Disneyland. With the Heat Transfer kit you get 5 sheets of heat transfers in 5 different colors.  Since I was on a roll, I had to make my two older girls princess shirts for … [Read more...]
