Adding Vinyl to Accent your Chalkboards

I love Chalkboards! I love words and so chalkboards are the perfect solution for me. If I didn’t have them, I would be one of those people who hung words all over the house using construction paper and scotch tape.

If you are not sure how to make a chalkboard, I tell you how to do it here. It really is easier than you think.

I wanted my chalkboard to have a little something extra and unique detail. So, I added a little bit of vinyl love. I have done this a couple of times and every time I do it, I love it more and more.

Supplies Needed:
Vinyl ( I love Vinyl Outlet.net)
Cricut Mini or your shape printed on some paper & scissors
Chalk and wet rag (to use as an eraser)
I cut out a simple #1 to fit in the corner of my chalkboard. When you are deciding what vinyl shape to put on your chalkboard, take your chalkboard size into consideration. This chalkboard is not huge, so I made sure my vinyl was cut to size. After you have cut out your vinyl decal, you just need to attach it to your board. I used transfer tape to make the application super simple.

Now that you have your chalkboard all decked out and you are not sure what to write on your board-I have a hundreds of quotes on my Chalkboard Quotes Board on Pinterest. 

If you are wanting some simple tips on how to write on your chalkboard-I did a whole post all about this as well. Simple, life changing tips. (Well not really life changing, but you get the idea)

Simple Valentines Canvas Decor by Tausha

I heart the day of love! I really do. I love the pink and red candy, the class valentines and the red pancakes I make for breakfast on February 14th.

The only thing that I don’t really love is the decor options that are available to purchase. Wa-waa 😦

I know that I am not the only one who feels this way, so I thought that I would come up with a simple piece of Valentine’s decor! You are excited..right? Wa-hoo!

Pin It
Supplies needed:
Canvas-it’s ok if there is something already on the canvas (painting) because you will cover it up
White round paper doily
Red heart doily
Red glitter
Junk Bow
“14” cut out of Brookie Vinyl
I love a simple project and this one is no different. It even goes a little bit faster if your kids are in bed and you have a diet coke and some chocolate to keep you company.
(you are going to want to glitter your heart doily before you start and let it dry overnight.)
1-I covered my canvas (that was previously a craft FAIL) with cute polka dot paper. I then added a strip of old school lined paper. I used double stick tape to adhere it. Worked like a charm.
2- I then added the vinyl 14 that I cut out with my Cricut Mini. I used the Storybook Font.
3- I then adhered the white doily  Some of the doily will fold over the edge of the canvas.That is what you want. I just glued it down on the sides.
4-Add your glittered, red heart, doily. Double stick tape to the rescue again.
5-I love a great junk bow-so that was one of final steps. Not sure what a junk bow is? Don’t worry, I did a whole post about it. You can read about it here. 
6- I used a fine point pen to draw “I love you” & to outline the 14. This is totally optional. So, if you hate your handwriting, no worries.
Done and done! I finished this whole project while watching an episode of Nashville. So, it doesn’t take too long. I hope that you will try this project out. I think that you will really LOVE the results!

Simple Noel Plates for Holiday Decorating

I  know that I am not the only one who is intrigued when the title has simple in it. Right?

It seems like all we do this time of year is run, run, run & run some more. We love the idea of giving a handmade gift to friends, neighbors, or co-workers, just not all the time and effort it would require.

Am I right? Well, today is your lucky day! I have a truly simple project that will take minutes to do and the results look like you took forever. Everyone will be wondering how in the world you have time to look so fabulousand have time to make a homemade gift that doesn’t look like your 5 yr. old helped.


First you need to gather all of your supplies.

noel plate supplies

4 White Plates-I used this design from Zion Mercantile because it’s versatile & I love it, but you could use whatever you want.
Vinyl-I used this fabulous glitter/red vinyl by Vinyloutlet.net (you can even emboss on this vinyl-it rocks)
A cutting machine-I used a Silhouette. You could use a Cricut or even Google images and a pair of scissors. If you really want a Sillouhette-you must check out this deal!
Because I used a Sillouhette, I chose my fonts online and cut them out. However, if you are using a Cricut, don’t stress, just use some fonts that you already have. If you are Google imaging it, this part is easy. Just find the font you want, size it in a word type document and print.

Once you have your letters cut out on the vinyl, all you need to do is apply. I am pretty sure that you know how to do this but, just in case, I took a picture.

Now that you have adhered all of your vinyl letters, you are good to go. I told you that it was easy!

Heat Transfer Trick-or-Treat Bag

by Tausha Hoyt from Sassy Style Redesign

Maybe I am the only one, but I grabbed the Halloween costume supplies and realized that we had no trick or treat bags. Not exactly sure how this happened, but we are trick or treat bag-less nonetheless.

So, I decided to remedy the situation today. It was super simple and not too hard to do. Good thing, because I need 3 of them.

First things first. You need to gather your supplies

Canvas Bag-I got mine at wal-mart in a 3 pack
Heat Transfer Vinyl-This is made by Brookie Craft. Look for it at a local craft store or online at vinyloutlet.net  You can look for this under the Sillouhette name.
Scrap Fabric for ironing

Anything that only has 4 supplies needed, is bound to be simple…right? Of course it is.

First, I used my Cricut to cut out the design. You could totally use a Google image, trace and cut out if you don’t have a Cricut or Silhouette.

When using heat transfer vinyl-you want to make sure that flip or mirror your image. Also, the matte side is the side that is facing up. The shiny side down.

Once your image is cut, you need to take it off of the transfer tape or clear acrylic side. Just peal it off. Super simple. Wa-hoo!

After your image is placed, you are ready to iron. This is where your scrap piece of fabric comes into play.

After you have the fabric over your image, use a no steam iron set on the cotton setting. Lightly iron over the image and it will set almost immediately.

After that, you are ironed and done!

I told you it was simple! I guarantee that your kids will have the cutest trick or treat bags around.

I am a mom x3 (all girls) and wife to a fantastic man who fully supports, most of the time, my need to redo, redecorate and shop the thrift stores on a weekly basis.

I love to use my glue gun, my ridiculous amount of fabric (even though I have no idea how to sew) and my border line “hoarder” amount of scrapbook paper. I love to express myself through my creations. The sentence, “Go to your craft room, you are being mean.” has been uttered more than once in my house.  I love to paint, makeover and redo my home…a lot. I am passionate about making my home a happy place where my family wants to be. I love sharing my ideas with you, in hopes that I can inspire you in some small way.

Here’s some vinyl projects I’ve done in the past that are sprinkled around my house:
