Graduation Celebration- All Week!

Over the past week we have been celebrating my daughter's graduation from college. Saturday we had her family party and of course I had to get crafting! The first project I wan to share with you corresponds to the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog Challenge of the Week- Graduation! 

As many of you know, my daughter graduated from Longwood University.  Their colors are blue, white and grey.  I used the Extreme Fonts-Little League Cartridge for the letters and numbers and the bottom layer only of a graduation cap from Cricut design space.  The cups came from the Dollar Store in the July Fourth section. The guests drank from the cups and were able to take them home as "souvenirs" of the occasion.  No Cricut- no problem! Try using the adhesive letters you find in the scrapbooking section of your favorite craft store. Just make sure that they are vinyl stickers and not paper! That makes them water-proof so that you can wash the cups. 

A little tip for layering adhesive vinyl.  It might seem obvious to you, but I had to learn by trial and error- layer the letters BEFORE applying to the surface of the cup or whatever you are decorating!  It is so much easier!

If you are in a graduation frame of mind, hop on over to the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge blog to show off your project and/or to see what the other "fantabulous" crafters are up too!

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used. If you use a Cricut Explore machine, at least one cut must be from the Cricut catalog of images.

If it isn't a card, you will get two entries into the drawing!

The great thing about having a school with three colors- if you run out of one color vinyl, you can finish the project with another!

Happy Halloween Tablescape

I love polka-dots.  They make me happy. So does Halloween, beautiful fall weather and the fact that my oldest daughter is visiting.  With that in mind, I decided to enjoy a happy little Halloween dinner on the deck. It has been a long time since I posted a table scape and I want to share this simple little happy table.  

A couple of weeks ago, I grabbed up the remaining yardage of this polka dot fabric from Walmart, of all places.  I wish I had bought more when it first came out.  It is perfect for a Halloween tablecloth, quilting or a number of other projects I can think of.  

This candelabra came from Target. I had a difficult time finding Halloween taper candles, finally stumbling upon them at Michaels (for 50% off!).  Again, I should have shopped in August, there were more options available then, but I really like the orange with black stripes. (Somebody remind me next year!) I made the witch hat last year (you can see that on my Halloween Eve post here.) There was quite a breeze on…

Bee-Lated Again! (And a Free-Bee!)

You may remember that I promised to tell you about the party favors from my daughter's "Bee-lated Birthday". Not only was I late with her birthday party, but I am late with the promised post as well!  With the bee theme that we had for the party, and my new found fascination with making my own bath soap and sugar scrubs, I decided to make little bee-themed soaps as a party favor.  

I have shared with you a couple of times how easy it is to make your own "designer" soaps. For these, I got a bee soap mold, some goat's milk soap base and my new favorite Honey Almond soap scent.  I purchased all of these from Micheal's (don't forget your coupon!), but I am intrigued by some molds that I found on Amazon.  Be sure to shop around and find what makes you happy. 

They are simple to make- melt one pound of the soap base in the microwave according to package directions (30 seconds, stir: 30 seconds, stir, etc. until completely melted).  Add your favorite scent, …
