Valentines Tree

Category: My Crafty Projects  |  Permalink

Published: Wednesday, January 4, 2017

I've always wanted a Valentine's tree but have never got around to doing one.... but NOW I have one. Yay, I'm so excited and wanted to share...


The idea popped up again after the kids and I had taken all the Christmas décor down and put it away but were waiting on my hubby to put up the tree. After it sat a couple days with the lights still on, I mentioned how pretty it still looked and I was sad to take it down. Then I said to my husband, "would you care if I did a Valentine's Day themed tree?". Of course this prompted the kids to chant "VALENTINES TREE, VALENTINES TREE". And well the hubby can't say no to that. haha! So here it is, my Valentine's Day tree. I went to several stores trying to find Christmas stuff on clearance but most were cleared out already (Jan 3rd). I called around and Kmart still had a small selection so I went and bought all the pink and red things I could find that would work. Then ventured to Hobby Lobby to buy up a bunch of Valentine's items that could work on the tree. Surprisingly they had Valentine's ornaments and garland. I ended up adding to the tree after taking this picture. I felt there were a few bare spots so I went back to Hobby Lobby and bought another pack of heart ornaments and a bouquet of pink fake roses. I cut them all apart and placed them in the bare areas... just haven't gotten around to taking more pics. :)

Now the kids and I are making a list of all the holidays we can decorate for. I have a feeling some will be challenging to find ornaments and things for certain themes but challenge accepted. I'll gladly craft some up. :) It's going to be a fun year of decorating with our tree.

CTMH Sugar Rush Blog Hop

Category: My Crafty Projects  |  Permalink

Published: Sunday, January 1, 2017

Happy New Year!

Guess what time it is? It's blog hop time! A few of my Damask Divas (team) and I wanted to show off the awesome new paper pack called Sugar Rush! It's so cute. I hope you'll get some inspiration by checking out what we've done with the paper.

I have been planner happy lately and usually make stickers but I decided to try something different and use the Sugar Rush paper and coordinating Sugar Rush Complements.

I had fun cutting the strips and making it work for my new planner inserts. My favorite was of course adding on all those cute Sugar Rush Complements (stickers). Pretty cute, huh? This paper is just adorable. Who doesn't love donuts, popsicles and these awesome colors?

Next up on the hop list is Jennifer ---> CLICK HERE.... Have fun HOPPING!

Thank You Goodie Basket for Mail Carriers

Category: My Crafty Projects  |  Permalink

Published: Thursday, December 15, 2016

Happy Holiday!

I just wanted to share with you what I am doing to say thank you to our hardworking mail carriers. I don't know about you but I do a lot of online shopping and just wanted to do a little something this holiday season to show my appreciation. We have several different mail carriers that come by (seems to be always someone different) so it's hard to give individual gifts to each of them but THIS idea is totally perfect....



There are so many different goodies you could put out for them, even homemade treats. I went with some waters which I just wrapped with washi tape and then added a variety of snack foods and some peppermint candies. Just some little things they could enjoy while doing their route. 

If you'd like to use the letter shown above that I made, I'll put the printable image right below for you. I left our name off so you can add in your own between the cute little Santa and elf. You'll just open it up, print it, add your name and fold it over the box or basket. Easy peasy!

PRINTABLE MAIL CARRIER LETTER

And a big thank you to Lisa Gwin. I came across her post while scrolling through Facebook. I knew I had to do something for my mail carriers as well and share with others so they can do the same.

Happy Holidays!

How To Make Planner Stickers using Cricut Design Space

Category: My Crafty Projects  |  Permalink

Published: Wednesday, November 2, 2016

Do you love using a paper planner? I do! I also still use the calendar on my iPhone/computer(s) but there is nothing like having it on paper. :) I love making lists, planning ahead and of course, since I love paper crafting I want my planner to look cute too. After having an Erin Condren, a Happy Planner, a Day Planner, an ARC planner I still wasn't feeling plannerfied <<< totally just made that word up. LOL! I loved the inserts for many of them but was wanting a different look of the actual planner, so I bit the bullet and "invested" in my dream planner. Ahhhh, I'm absolutely loving it!!! However, it comes empty and you have to purchase the inserts separately. There are tons of A5 size inserts out there to choose from. I have done a lot of research looking into a bunch of them to see which ones I wanted to go with. I'm still narrowing it down between a few companies for the 2017 inserts, for this agenda. Yes, I use 2. (I'm crazy like that) I plan on using my Close To My Heart 2017 planner for my businesses and this one for a little of everything. In the meantime, I found printable ones I liked on Etsy and have been printing them out myself. They are very much like the Erin Condren layouts, except the Saturday and Sunday boxes are stacked to accommodate the A5 size (as shown in the pic below).

I love the look of planners with stickers on them but couldn't see myself actually ordering tons and tons of stickers on Etsy. Well actually, I totally CAN see myself doing that but since I'm pretty crafty I decided to figure out how to do it on my own so I could create what I wanted, whenever I need them and not have to purchase any. I played around with Cricut Design Space a bunch to figure things out and finally have it down where I can get all my stickers designed out for the following week, printed, cut and on my planner in about 30 minutes. Sometime it takes longer if I am having a hard time deciding on which designs to go with but the process doesn't take too long. Well, I figured I'd share how easy it is so you can jazz up your planners if you'd like too. :)

 Here is a video I made to walk you through how I make them...

   

Hope this was helpful. Let me know if you have questions.
