A good tote bag is a summer essential. Something that can get wet, easy to carry and can hold all your pool, beach or lake items. For our honeymoon I needed a beach bag that I could use around the hotel to take towels, sunscreen, phones, books and such to the pool or beach. I found this canvas bag on Amazon for $6.00 and thought it was perfect to personalize with some iron-on vinyl. **This post contains affiliate links.

This is a super simple Vinyl project that has no layering or special designs. If your tote is washable, you will need to pre-wash the bag (more…)
Last November I purchased a Wifey sweatshirt to wear the day after our winter wedding. I love it so much and once it was summertime I was sad to put it away for winter. Once we booked our honeymoon, I new I wanted a Wifey tank top. There are so many adorable wifey tank tops out there. This time instead of buying another one off Etsy, I decided to make my own for less than half the cost! If you’re not married or engaged, this can be a perfect gift for a friend’s engagement party or shower.
I made this project with my Cricut. If you don’t have one you can either buy a vinyl iron on off one from one the many Etsy or buy iron on letters from a local craft store and still make your own tank. **This post contains affiliate links.

Designing the Wifey
The honeymoon is almost here and we are heading to an All Inclusive resort in Mexico! I can’t wait to lay out on the beach with my hubby margarita in hand! After reading tons of reviews about all inclusive resorts, I decided it was a good idea to bring along a tumbler to keep beverages cold while laying poolside/beachside at the resort. I’m a big water drinker, but I hate warm water. If I needed to order 10 cups of water at once and fill up my tumbler to keep it cold in the sun, I would do so in heartbeat. I decided custom tumblers were a must! *This post contains affiliate links. If you purchase after clicking on one of these links, we will be compensated.*

Make Your Own Princess Monogram Using A Cricut
A monogrammed water bottle is perfect to take to the park. You can also make one for your own little princess at home. I love to monogram just about everything. Since Disney World allows you to bring water into the park, why not have a Disney monogrammed water bottle?! I always make sure to bring a water bottle with me to the parks anyways. For my last trip, I decided to make my friends and I monogrammed bottles. *This post contains affiliate links. If you make a purchase after clicking on one of these links we will be compensated.

I have the world’s best Dad. He is supportive, caring and always there for me when I need a witty joke. He was my first dance partner and probably the first to make me laugh. I was the luckiest girl alive to have my wonderful Dad and for this Father’s Day I made him a card and sent it via snail mail. I could have gone above and beyond with a crazy gift, but a simple token of appreciation is what I chose to do. This weekend do something special for your Dad or make him this card!

Cricut’s Speech Bubble Father’s Day Card
I love my die cut machine. I’m always trying to figure out a new use for it, like almost every day I think to myself what else can I cut. It may be a slight obsession, but in all seriousness, there is so much this machine can do! In the short time, I’ve had my Cricut Explore Air, I feel like I’ve doubled my craft production. It has been the key to my crafting projects and honestly has saved me money from things I would have gone to Etsy to purchase. If you are a DIYer or a crafter, get a Cricut and get crafting!

Sometimes I think everything in life should be personalized and after I got a Cricut, I had to test out making my own monogram. I have this file folder I purchased at Target that I use to store extra paper, vinyl, iron on material and other scraps and it needed some personalization to help cover up a weird spot the price tag left. So, I decided to test out my monogram making skills and make my first Cricut vinyl project.

I recently purchased a new cricut machine to take my DIY projects to the next level. While card crafting is not impossible to do without a die cut machine, the new cricut design space makes it extremely easy to make cards and envelope fast. There are hundreds of designs, some at little to no cost on the design space. This tutorial is the second card I make with my cricut and it turned out very cute. This card showcases three things that a cricut can do cut, score and write.If you don’t have a die cut machine you may want to skip this tutorial. **This post may contain affiliate links. (more…)
