More Vinyl

Here are some more vinyl things I have done! I apologize that the picture quality isn't the best! I took the pics on my phone.

Ballet Shoes, the transfer tape is already on, the vinyl is a brighter pink color. How could would this look on a little girls bedroom wall?!

I know Christmas has already passed, but this is some vinyl I did for my friends house! I should have made the fireplace bigger. Since they didn't have a fireplace, I thought that the imitation one would be a great idea. Unfortunately, it was a little too small for the stockings! Next year...we will do the right size!

Craft Room Storage

I am always looking for ways to organize my craft stuff! I absolutely love all of this storage stuff from Stampin' Up!

This box would be perfect for organizing pictures or cards, or anything really! I like how it's clear so you can see what's in it!
Right now I have all of my ribbons in jars, 1 jar per color. If you don't like the jar idea, this would be great for ribbon!
This would be a nice way to organize my paper! Dividers can be purchased separately to divide your papers by color.
I purchased this ink organizer a few months ago and it has worked great! It really only works for Stampin' Up! ink though. If you don't have their ink, I highly recommend it! It doesn't smear! They have tons of colors to choose from, and when your onk pad dries out, you can buy the ink refills instead of a new ink pad.
I also purchased this to store all of my lovely Stampin' Up! embellishments! You can purchase the storage containers separately to store other things as well!

Trying out Photography

Back in October I got a really nice camera. I decided this weekend to put it to great use, and try some more professional type photography. I took these maternity pictures of my friend Lindsay and her husband Annand.  Honestly, what do you think?

Camera Strap

I think these camera straps are absolutely adorable! I would love to have one for my cannon camera! I came across the blog Grosgrain and saw these cute camera straps. There are different fabrics to chose from. All you do is slide this cover over your camera strap! What a cute idea! I'm adding it to either a "craft to do list" (for my hubby that is, he's the one who can sew!) or a "to buy list"...not sure which one yet! I looked up camera straps on Etsy, and found that most cost around $10...and come in cute Amy Butler fabrics!

Baby Shower

I threw a baby shower this weekend for a very good friend of mine! The colors: Teal and Brown! I had so many ideas of things I wanted to make! Unfortunately I didn't get to do everything I wanted to, but I did do most of it! The thing I was most excited about was this banner! I used all Stampin' Up! paper, my cricut, double sided tape, toile, and ribbon! That's it!
This is the banner!

With it also being the holiday season, I decided to make peppermint bark for the take-home treat! All you do is crush candy canes, stir them into melted white chocolate, lay flat on wax paper, refrigerate until hard, and break into pieces! What a yummy snack! I wanted to stick to the teal and brown, so I used teal paper with brown polka dots to cover the treat baggies. Then I stapled the baggies shut! 
I made these for the cupcake toppers! The cupcakes where chocolate with chocolate frosting of course! Yummy! 
Since I have a vinyl machine, I decided to do different vinyl projects for game prizes!
This is prize #1
Prize #2
Prize #3
Prize #4
Prize #5
Prize #6
Prize #7
Since every good place to hang a banner is being occupied by garland for Christmas....I used the TV haha!
I also made these plaques. They were used as a shower decoration, plus they are a nursery decoration.

I found this cute cupcake stand at Williams-Sonoma! I love it!

Christmas Countdown Calendar

This is my newest addition to my Etsy Shop! I am so excited about it! It's a Christmas Countdown Calendar! This is made in a 12x12 routed board. Its has sheet metal with vinyl lettering on it. The vinyl lettering reads "Let it Snow" 4 times. There are the numbers 1-25 inside of snowflakes. The calendar comes with a magnet to put on the day that it is...leading you up to Christmas. Let me know if you would like one of these! Cost is $29.95...or I can barter too! I'm super excited about these! I hope you all like them!
