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

The inside

The storage

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 :-)

Blog Candy!

Very cute projects. The spidey card was cute and I loved the web. Not much into sewing these days, but you may have inspired me to drag that old machine out. Thanks so much. I followed you on GFC.
