Prepping for a Super Father's Day!

I have been blessed with a wonderful Dad and my children have a wonderful father as well.   My Dad and my husband can and will do anything for their kids (and in my Dad's case, grandkids, too).  I think that is why I always go for a "Super Hero" theme for Father's Day. My Dad and my husband are my heroes.  That is why I chose to go for a Super Man theme for this week's Fantabulous Cricut Challenge "Masculine Challenge",  just in time for Father's Day. 

One thing that I love about the new Cricut Design Space is the ability to upload images and cut them. 

I uploaded this symbol from the internet (I wish I had made note of where).  It was pretty simple (there are a lot of good tutorials for uploading images online).  

I made this gift tag to go with the theme.  The "hero" is from "Paper Doll Dress Up".  I think I have said it before, but this is one of my favorite cartridges.  I use it a lot more than I thought I would, not having young children at home.  The letters are uploaded from the internet.  I love that I can use so many different fonts in my crafting these days! 

Just for fun, I decided to make a box.  I don't know what I am going to put in it (I haven't done my Father's Day shopping yet!), but I just learned how to make them (see my post on grad gifts here for my first ever box!) and I have been practicing.  The cut came from the Design Space.  It's the perfect size for a gift card, some candy or cookies (or jewelry!).

This is not the first time I have used this theme for Father's Day or a birthday.  

In 2015 I made this cake for Father's Day.  You can read about it and my Dad here. You can also see the tablescape for the occasion here. 

I made this cake for my husband's birthday a few years ago. The cakes, tablescape and the cards can all be used for Father's Day or a birthday party.  With all of the Marvel movies, especially the new "Wonder Woman" movie being so popular, Super Hero themes are really great party themes. 

I hope that you will hop on over to the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog to see what the other creative crafters have done with this theme and maybe post your own project!

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, …
