Just one week until Thanksgiving. I sure do love this time of year. Lots of fun memories made and loads of craftiness going on. ;)

A couple of weeks ago I made a wooden sign that turned out a millions times better than I ever thought it would have. Best part? It was easy. EASY. Heck yeah! That's my kind of craft! ;)

So what do you think???? Do you like it? I sure do. 
I actually had the wood sitting in my garage for a while, my dad gave it to me for sign making. I knew it would come in handy one day! ;) Does anyone else hoard craft objects too? No? Just me? Hehe! I'm sure I'm not alone. ;) Any way! So I stained that bad boy with Polyshades stain & Polyurethane - Bombay Mahogany Gloss.  Then I did a light sanding around the edges of the wood to give it a distressed look. I made a stencil with the Silhouette Cameo design studio software. Cut it out with vinyl (651) then applied to to the wood where I wanted it to be. I then painted a thin layer of mod podge over the stencil to seal it a bit more. Once that was dry, I painted over it with my light daffodil yellow acrylic paint. Then pulled off the vinyl stencil right away. And viola! It was (is) beautiful! Love love love it! And of course I hot glued on the canvas flowers and lace ribbon to it to finish of the look.

Love this font? So do I!!!! It's one of my all-time favorites. It's called 'Isabella'. You can find it HERE
Don't feel like purchasing the entire font? Good news! I created a cut file of this exact 'thankful' word for all of the cut machine maniacs out there! ;) You can find it HERE.

So true!!

I designed and made just about 95% of my son's TMNT birthday party decorations. I had a blast doing so. If you have any questions about any of the stuff you see, please don't hesitate to leave a comment! Enjoy!

My son's 4th birthday is coming up, so I've been working away at making his party decorations. I recently finished his invitations and I just have to share them! I absolutely love how they turned out. :)

He chose his theme this year, and of course he chose Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. ;) His favorite.

I looked around for digital images for his invite to print....but decided to go a different route this time!
Every TMNT loves pizza, so I decided to make his invite 3D and make it in the shape of a Pizza Box. I searched the Silhouette Design Store for a template and found "Pinwheel Pizza Box" by the designer Suzanne Cannon (you can find her blog here). This box was perfect for my project! It's also very easy and fast to put together. Best part? NO. GLUE. NEEDED. Bam! Hallelujah! If you're a paper crafter, you know how rare and convenient this is for us. You feel like you've hit a jack-pot. :P

After purchasing and downloading my pizza box cut file, I measured all the surfaces that I wanted to cover/decorate. Then designed them in Silhouette Studio and Photoshop, made a print and cut file, then printed on sticker paper. Made it a thousand times easier and faster to assemble my invites. :)
