Magical Lunch Boxes

Even though it is only the end of July I know that some school districts are already close to starting back to school. Here in NC we still have about a month to go but it's never too soon to start working on a few back to school projects. It's even more fun to work on projects when there as cute as these sandwich containers I am about to show you!

Typography Signs 201 + Silhouette Promotion

A couple week ago I showed you how you can make subway, or typography, art using files that can be purchased in the Silhouette Store. In that tutorial I simply cut the words out in vinyl and applied them to my sign. Today I am going to show you a slightly different, and more involved, variation of making typography art with a file I purchased from the Silhouette Store. I also have the details for the July special Silhouette promotion below that you can get with the code word KINDA!

Mod Podge Collage Clay Decoden Frame

Disclosure: This product review is part of a campaign that I was compensated for. However, my opinions are 100% authentic and I felt that this was a product that you would like to know more about!

Have you heard of Decoden? Until a couple weeks ago I hadn't either so let me explain. Decoden is the art of decorating anything with trinkets, and "the more the merrier" is the name of the game in designing an over the top look in this 3D collage technique. The possibilities are endless as to what you use to make decoden art - trinkets, buttons, Mod Melts, rhinestones - anything you want! To make this kind of art project easy and fun Mod Podge has come out with a new product called Collage Clay. I put together a little tutorial that shows you how to use Mod Podge Collage Clay and guess what, this entire project took me less than 20 minutes!!

Upcycled Lilly Pulitzer Art

If you follow me on Instagram you might know that I, big ol' pink puffy heart, love Lilly Pulitzer. It's not a new obsession; I even had my first daughter and I photographed in matching Lilly shift dresses back in 2009. It's actually very out of my comfort zone to wear loud, bright clothing with prints, in fact, I can almost always be found in solids, maybe a stripe here or there. There's just something about Lilly that makes bright and colorful feel comfortable. I look forward to their catalogs or look books each season and this year's summer catalog was no disappointment. They are always the highest quality, the paper feels great between your finger, which made this year's summer catalog perfect for upcycling!

Make Subway Art from Silhouette Store Files

I love typography as art. Might have something to do with my font obsession but typography art just sings to my heart. But here's my little secret, I can't paint. I mean, I REALLY can't paint. Even straight lines are hard for me. That's why I have a Silhouette Cameo - so I never have to hand paint anything in my life, ever again. Luckily for you and me, we don't even have to know how to design subway or typography art because someone has already done it for us and we can buy the files in the Silhouette Store for under $1!!

How to Sew a Sea Shell Bag

She sells sea shells by the seashore. We all know that but how does she go about collecting those sea shells? My guess is her mom made her a sea shell bag so she'd have 2 hangs free to collect shells as she walks down the shore in pocketless bathing suit. You only need to know how to sew in a straight line to be able to make one of these versatile Sea Shell Bags
