Birthday Wishes- Formal Occasions Card

Personalized Gifts

Hello Everyone!  I hope you are all having a fabulous Saturday.  I hope that everyone got a tummy full of yummy turkey this week.  I also hope you got some good deals during black Friday.  If you are like me, I celebrated black Friday in my PJ's sitting in front of the computer browsing websites to pick up a few must haves.  That way I don't have to fight the crazy crowds.  

This year I decided to make Christmas extra special.  Instead of giving store bought gifts, I am going to make everything handmade.  I LOVE getting a handmade gift.  I was browsing the EAD Designs website the other day looking for some special things that I can use for everyone on my Christmas list.  There were so many cute and fun things that anyone would love.  It was such a hard decision on what to get.  After a few minutes of narrowing down my selection, I decided I need to make me a little something too.  

I found a really pretty vinyl decal that is personalized for a wedding day.  I picked it up because I have nothing in my house like this and so my hubby will always remember our anniversary.  ;)

I decided to stick the vinyl decal in a frame setting.  I stuck the vinyl on the glass, that way I can change out the background paper when I want a little something different.

This would make an AWESOME wedding gift too!  Any couple will surely treasure it forever.

Be sure to check out the fun things in the EAD Designs store, there are some GREAT Christmas gifts for everyone on your list.

Here is the product I used:

My most asked Question

Hi everyone!  I hope you are all having a fabulous
Saturday.  For todays project I wanted to make something
fun while answering one of my most asked questions.

I always get the question:
*Where is the best place to get vinyl for your Cricut Machine?

*I have used a lot of different brands of vinyl in my machine
and I have to be honest and say that the vinyl I purchase at
EAD DESIGNS works best. 

Why I love EAD DESIGNS Vinyl you ask?
*Extremly High Quailty Vinyl
*Doesn't Peel
*Cuts like butter in the Cricut Machine
*Free Transfer Tape with vinyl
*Tons of Colors/designs to Choose from
*Fast Shipping
*Familty owned business

I could go on an on....
You just need to go try it out
for yourself!

Here is a few project that I made using the
vinyl sheet from EAD DESIGNS

I love making banners for all the Holidays and Special
Occassions.  When I make a banner I want it to last for
years.  I have tried just using paper letters and gluing them
down.  Over time the glue starts to come apart and the letters
fall off.  I have used other brands of vinyl and it is okay for a
while but eventually it start peeling off.  I can say that I have
never had a problem with the vinyl sheets from

Machine here:

Trust me... Once you use this vinyl,
you can never go back :)

My Two Loves- Vinyl and Paper

Happy Friday Everyone! I hope you are all
having a FABULOUS day! I am super
excited to share a couple of projects with

When most people think of vinyl, they
think of putting it on walls, wood, glass,
and windows.  Have you ever thought
of putting it on paper?

You can create an endless amount of
home decor items by using my two
favorite things- paper and vinyl!

I love to use vinyl on my scrapbooking
layouts because over time the adhesive
you use on your titles seems to wear
and not keep your layout in place. 
I LOVE LOVE LOVE using vinyl
when I make titles on my pages.  The
vinyl is going to stay put FOREVER!

Here is a few projects I did this week
using vinyl and paper.  I am starting to
get in the Christmas spirit!

I have ordered a lot of vinyl in my day and the best
vinyl and the highest quality is found at EAD Designs.

You can buy the cutest vinyl decals or
buy plain sheets and create something

 Here is a list of all the stops incase you
get lost along the way.

I am going to warn you...
I am not a extremly organzied crafter.
Everything in my room has its place, it
just never gets there ;)

98% of the time my Craftroom looks like this....
Kinda embarrassing, I know.
I am super excited for this hop because it
actually made me CLEAN and semi-organize
my room. I will also have to do another video in
a few month when we move.  I can't wait to have
a bigger craftroom!  Mine right now is tiny.

My HONEST thoughts on the Cricut Imagine

Today I wanted to share a little bit about
my Cricut Imagine.  I purchased this machine
a couple months ago.  I was so super excited
when the UPS man knocked on my door.  I
had been clearing out a special area in my craft
room just for the Cricut Imagine.
I hurried and set it all up, did the update and was
all ready to start playing and....
it would NOT work....  I tried 100's of times
with no luck.  I finally gave up and called the
cricut support line.  They were so awesome,
they had me try lots of things but still nothing
worked.  I sent my machine to have them
get it fixed and a few days later a new one
arrived.  I was so excited because this one
WORKED!  I started to play around with it
and I thought it was okay... the colors weren't
bright and bold like the projects I have seen
using this machine.    It seems like the colors
were dull and sometimes not the same as
pictured in the cartridge handbook.  I got a
new cartridge in the mail this week and was
so excited to try it out when I got home.  I
started to print some images and I was very
disappointed...  I decided to change the black
ink cartridge (I had only used the Cricut
Imagine only 4 times) I didn't think I needed
to change it.  It made all the difference.  As
you can see in the picture the new prints are
bright, bold and perfect.

Here is a super quick project that I made with
the Cricut Imagine:

  • Cricut Imagine Machine
  • Cricut Imagine Cartridge- Buccaneer
  • Glossy Accents
  • String and Button
  • Stamp- My Pink Stamper (Everyday Life)

I can make a project super quick!
  1. It requires as much or as little layering that you want to do!
  2. I can change the colors/patterns in the images!
  3. It prints patterned paper!
  4. I can use my Gypsy with it!
  5. I can use regular Cricut Cartridges with the machine!
  6. I can use RGB codes and match paper I already have!
  7. There are SUPER cute Cricut Imagine Cartridges!
  8. It's a product from Provo Craft!
  9. EXCELLENT Customer Service!
  10. It makes my crafting 100% easier
