LEGO Inspired Printable Name Tags

My daughter is going to be Olivia of LEGO Friends for Halloween. The Olivia costume is easy. Olivia is a real girl who wears a purple skirt and a pink shirt with hearts on it. Kara was afraid that people wouldn’t recognize her costume so she asked me to make her a name tag. This was easily done because I just altered the LEGO inspired backpack tags I made a few months ago. What I do for my daughter, I also do for my son so there are [continue reading]

Pumpkin Treat Boxes

  I always look for creative ways to package our Halloween fun. This year I am making these pumpkin treat boxes for my kids and their friends. I know there is such a thing as too much candy but at 4.25 inches tall and 2.5 inches wide, these treat boxes are the perfect size to share just a few treats with our favorite people. Supplies: Sizzix Big Shot (affiliate link) Sizzix Movers and Shapers XL Die – Bag With Flap (affiliate link) Sizzix Extended Cutting Pads (affiliate link) [continue reading]

LEGO Inspired Trick or Treat Buckets With Free Printable

My kids are obsessed with LEGOs. My daughter is going to be Olivia from LEGO Friends for Halloween. When we were at LEGOLAND Florida over the weekend, the kids asked me if they could buy LEGO Halloween buckets. I searched all the stores at the park but didn’t find anything so I decided to make my own. I found small yellow buckets at Party City for $0.99 each. I have occasionally used vinyl before but have never layered it so I found a great tutorial on how to [continue reading]

Still Falling For You Card Made With Watercolors

I love to sneak a note or a card into my husband’s lunch or laptop bag just to tell him how much I love him. The idea for a “still falling for you” card has been swimming around in my head for a few weeks. I searched the Silhouette online store for a realistic leaf design and found the perfect set of leaves. I went to the designer’s website and found her tutorial on how to use watercolors to make the leaves look more realistic. Supplies: 1 sheet [continue reading]

Personal Yearbooks - Front Page, August and September

Every year for the past three years I have created personal yearbooks for one class. This year, I am creating personal yearbooks for both of my children’s classes. That’s a total of 37 students! Why do I take on such a time consuming project? I have two motivations. The first is that I do not have many photos of myself when I was young. I know not every family is as picture happy as ours so I want every child to have some memories of their elementary school [continue reading]

Easy DIY Baby Construction Worker Costume For During Pregnancy

During my second pregnancy six years ago, I needed a Halloween costume to wear to a 12 hour scrapbook crop. I was about six months pregnant so I had two requirements for the costume. The first requirement was that the costume be comfortable. Being pregnant was already uncomfortable most of the time so I didn’t want the costume to be too constricting or heavy. The second requirement was that the costume not make me hot. I live in Florida and in October it can still be in the [continue reading]

Pink Strong Digital Scrapbook Kit

There’s no easy way to begin this story so I’ll jump right in. I found a breast lump two months ago. In that horrible moment, all I could think about was what it could mean to my family. I stayed in the bathroom for a few minutes while I gathered my thoughts and then went to find my husband. He is always the calm one and he was calm about the lump as well. He told me not to worry until could see my doctor and get a [continue reading]

Glittery Snow Princess Card

My sweet niece Winter is about to turn 2! Winter recently discovered princesses and I feel like I need to fuel her new obsession. I made her this snow princess dress card for her birthday.
