Football Fever

With fall approaching it's definitely time for football again! I love this idea that one of my customers did for her son's room. It is amazing! After she painted the wall she actually used tape to mark the yard lines and the end zones. The numbers and the team name are done in vinyl. She ordered two colors for the names and created a shadow with them! So creative and super fun!

Back To School

It wouldn't feel like back to school time without blinging out our folders... just a little bit. Okay so maybe it would, but we just love to do it anyway. A little paper, a little ribbon and a little vinyl can make looking at your homework folder a little more fun, right?

When we are getting ready to go back to school it seems like you have to label EVERYTHING! So why not make it a little fun?

I love how these water bottles turned out.

So if you are making stickers at home on your Cricket I think the most important tip for vinyl on a water bottle is use a chunky font if you want to be able to run it through the dishwasher and have it last. Even with a very durable vinyl if your lettering is too thin over time you will loose a letter or two to the dishwasher. You could always hand wash, but I prefer not to if my dishwasher can do the work for me. I also try to avoid using the matte vinyl for water bottles and go with the vinyl that is thicker and a little more durable for water and heat. Or you can always email me and I would love to print out names for you.

I had a little fun with this water bottle. I thought it would be fun to do polka-dots to go with her lunch box.

A couple of years ago my kids made these pencil boxes. I let them decorate it how they wanted to and they are still using them! So cute and they had a ton of fun doing it.

I hope that everyone has a great first day at school! We have had such a fun summer. I have loved being with my kids and I will miss them, but I'm so grateful that they can get a good education!
