Simple Gift Card Holder

Hi everyone!  I have a fun and simple project for you using some fabulous Timeless Twine.

I am always looking for little things to give as a 'thank you' gift. I have started making some gift card holders because they are super quick and simple and fun to create. I really love that I can use up all my little scraps that wouldn't ever get used up.

I love how the twine adds a little extra detail to the gift card holder:) It really makes it pop.

Before and After Project

Hi everyone!  I hope you are all having a fabulous Saturday.  For today's project I decided to make something for my craftroom.  I got a new cricut cartridge a few months ago and haven't even opened it up yet.  

  • Cricut Expression Cutting Machine
  • Word Collage Cricut Cartridge
  • 8 inch Square Frame
  • Vinyl- EAD Designs
  • Ribbon
  • Paper (any color/design would work)

I like that I stuck the vinyl on the glass that way if I want a different look I can just change out the paper.

Be sure to pick up some fabulous vinyl from EAD Designs for all your cricut crafting need:)

See you next Saturday with another fun vinyl project:)

Before and After

    Hi everyone!  I hope you are all having a fabulous day.  I wanted to share a fun idea with a new product that EAD Designs now offers.  NAIL DECALS!!!!!  Yes, you heard me right, they now offer cute vinyl decals to decorate your nails.  I was so excited as soon as I heard about this new product, I had to pick some up.
    I have a little sister that loves having her nails painted so a few days ago I surprised her with a fun manicure.  We painted her finger nails and waited until they were completely dry.

    Then we added some heart decals and topped it off with a clear coat of polish.  
    These would be great for Valentines day:)

 Be sure to check out the NAIL DECALS!
 See you next Saturday with another fun vinyl project:)

Before and After- Valentines Project

Hi Everyone!  I hope you are all having a fantastic day!  I got a few emails from lasts weeks project (Snowflake Plate) that I would like to answer.

 Can you use a plate that has vinyl to put treats on and how do you wash it?
*Yes, you can put treats and other goodies on a plate decorated with vinyl.  When washing, use warm (not too hot) water and DO NOT put in the dishwasher.

What can I do to take a vinyl decal off a plate that has already been applied?
*The easiest and fastest way to take off vinyl off an object is to heat it with a blow dryer until the edges start to curl up.

I also got an email wanting me to show a Valentine decorated plate and here it is:

 Don't you just LOVE it?  I sure do!  Can't wait to display it with all my other valentine decorations.

Be sure to check out EAD DESIGNS for tons and tons of adorable Valentine decals!

You can find the one I used HERE

See you back here Saturday for another fun vinyl project:)

Vinyl Snowflake Plate

Hi Everyone!  I hope you are all having a fantastic Saturday.  I wanted to share a fun project that I made in December and didn't post (It was a CRAZY month).
I like to have a holiday themed plate on my kitchen counter.  I had a cute snowflake one last Christmas but it broke :(  I decided to make my own.
I still wanted to stick with a snowflake theme, so I pulled out my Cricut cutting machine and some vinyl sheets from EAD DESIGNS.

After a few minutes I decorated a plain plate into something extra cute!  Now I need to make a plate for Valentines Day:)  I just am having a hard time trying to decide what cute Valentine vinyl decal to get from EAD DESIGNS because they are all too stinkin' cute!

If you need some vinyl sheets for your Cricut machine, check these ones out:

See you next Saturday with another fun home decor project:)
