DIY Wifey Tank Top

by

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.

Homemade Natural Bug Spray

by

With all the recent news about mosquitoes, I thought it was important to bring a ton of bug spray with us to Mexico, just be on the safe side. Our honeymoon is finally here and we are currently soaking up the sun on a sandy beach.  I know you can get bit just as easily at home as abroad, so this great little bug spray is perfect for a purse and made from ingredients that won’t harm the world. Follow us on a Instagram to see our trip live in action.

Mr. & Mrs. Honeymoon Tumblers

by

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.

Happy Father’s Day Card

by

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 Projects – Cards, Vinyl and Beyond

by

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!

Star Wars RunDisney Outfit

by

I recently ran the Star Wars 5K at Walt Disney World. One of the best parts of running Disney is all the crazy outfits people wear. After I signed up, I immediately wanted to have a fun outfit. Originally, I was going to make a crazy costume. That idea was over quickly once I remembered I had to be able to run in it. I decided on something I could actually use again and something that was easy to run in.

There are so many Star Wars RunDisney Outfits you can buy on esty, but why not just make one! It’s cheap, easy and you can add your own flare. The tank I made for the 5k said May The Course Be With You in yellow neon glitter letter. Here are instructions on how to make your own tank. ** This post contains affiliate links to products I use for your convenience and to support the continuance of this site. All opinions expressed are my own.

DIY Monogrammed File Folder

Monogrammed File Holder - DIY with Vinyl using a Cricut Explore

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.

Cricut Thank You Card - DIY with a Cricut Explore

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…)
