I am a proud mommy to two little princes and I couldn't figure out what I wanted to share with you, so I chose 3 projects :-)
The first is a Spiderman card I made for a birthday party we were invited to last weekend.
I found this Spiderman jpeg on the internet and used my silhouette to print and cut the design. The spiderweb and 5 are from my silhouette. It's kind of hard to see but I heat embossed the spiderweb to make it have a glistening effect. The "make a wish" sentiment is from Pink by Design (I design for them!)
My next project is a type that I do a lot! I love to print designs on heat transfer paper and make custom t-shirts for my boys and their friends :-)
These adorable Avengers are the creations of Lisa over at Pretty Papers, Pretty Ribbons. The font for the name is called Masked Marvel. The printable transfers I use are June Tailor. I print and cut them using my silhouette and then iron it on. Super easy but a great personalized gift :-)
The last project I have for you today involves some sewing. I will be the first to tell you that I am a beginner when it comes to sewing. I get an idea in my head and then I just try to put it together on my own (which is what I did here). I wanted to make something I could carry along in the car for my little guys that would keep them busy when they get bored.
Here it is folded up
I found some super cute white boards in the $ spot at Target, along with mini dry erase markers and erasers. The pocket on the left holds the whiteboard and a few other books and the right side has compartments to the hold the markers, eraser and a hotwheel or two. They don't take up much room at all! It cost me less than $5 to make both of them because it doesn't take much material. I don't have step by step instructions because I honestly just made it up as I went. If anyone is interested I can try to write out the dimensions and how I put it together :-)
If you become a follower and leave a comment, I am giving away the "Dots for Sure" from Unity Stamps! (unfortunately due to shipping, US addresses only)
