Vinyl Home Decor Project

Hi everyone!  I hope you are all having a fantastic weekend!  It is great weather here, I think I am going to play in the sunshine:)  Before I leave, I wanted to share a fun home decor project with you today.

I purchased a bunch of unfinished wood frames a few months ago.  I like to have a few on hand so I can create a quick gift if I need one.

I cut down a 12x12 paper to fit the size of the frame and attached it with Mod Podge.  I then created some rolled flowers with the extra paper scraps that I cut.

I used some of my favorite vinyl sheets from EAD Designs.  I cut it using my Cricut Expression Cutting Machine.  If you don't have a cutting machine, no worries.  EAD Designs has a fun little design center on the website that lets you create what you need.  How awesome is that?!
This frame was super easy to make and would make a great gift for someone :)
 See you all next Saturday with another fun vinyl project! 

Items Used:
  • Unfinished Wood Frame
  • Paper- Cosmo Cricket
  • Mod Podge
  • Scissors
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Cricut Expression Cutting Machine
  • Calligraphy Cricut Cartridge
  • Vinyl Sheet- EAD Designs

A very GREEN Project

Hi everyone!  I hope you are having a fantastic St. Patricks Day.  I hope you remembered to wear your GREEN ;)  In honor of St. Patty's Day, I created a very GREEN project.

First off I found a piece of scrap wood I had laying around.  I painted it GREEN and sanded the edges for a worn look.

 I then dug through my vinyl scraps and found a small piece of vinyl.
I like to save my GREEN and get as much out of a sheet of vinyl that I can.  To make a shamrock, I used my Cricut Expression Machine.  I then added a little sparkly GREEN shamrock sticker and some GREEN ribbon.
This project was super easy and fun to do.  I made a little something to celebrate the GREEN holiday today and also saved a little GREEN by digging through my scraps :)

Have a fantastic day!

Supplies Used:
  • Wood Block
  • Sander
  • Green Paint
  • Cricut Expression Cutting Machine
  • Paperdoll Dress Up Cricut Cartridge
  • Vinyl (EAD DESIGNS)
  • Glitter Shamrock Sticker
  • Ribbon

Mini Notebooks

Hi everyone!  I hope you are all having a great Friday!
For today's project I wanted to show you by adding a little bit of twine can really make your project pop.

I made some mini notebooks for a church activity and thought they needed a little something extra. I pulled out some of my favorite Timeless Twine and tied a little bow around each of the notebooks.

These notebooks were so super easy to make and they would be great for gifts!
