Pallet Letter Sign {tutorial}


Hanging on the wall in our den is this fun pallet letter sign:



The Hubs took beat the pallet apart and I lined up 4 boards and used two smaller pieces that Ross cut for me to hold it all together.



I flipped the sign over and got out my awesome DecoArt Designer Series White paint that my friends at DecoArt sent me a pencil, and a few paint brushes.




Next I drew a big '’P” on the sign with the pencil.
Can you see part of it?!




Then I took a smaller paint brush and painted over the pencil line.




I used the big paint brush to fill the “P” in.




Once the “P” was all painted, I let the paint dry well then sanded it down to give it a distressed look.



Now we have a fun Pallet Letter Sign hanging in our den!



The best part, it was FREE!




Gotta love a free piece of custom art hanging on the wall that most people assume cost a fortune!

Print On Heat n Bond {Applique Tutorial}


I made these shirts for Cliff and Harper to wear to the hospital when Hollis was born!

Applique Tutorial, How to print on Heat n Bond, How to Applique perfect letters


I took a roll of Heat n Bond and cut a piece the size of printer paper.
Then I went to the computer and picked out the words/fonts, etc I wanted to use.
Make sure you print the letters out BACKWARDS on the Heat n Bond!
Then I put the piece of Heat N Bond paper side UP in the printer with a few pieces of printer paper behind it and printed the letters onto the Heat n Bond!

Next, I gathered scrap fabric, cut out the letters and ironed the Heat n Bond to the back of the fabric according the directions on the package.
Cut out the letters, iron to the shirt and then stitch the letters onto the shirt.

DIY Baby Shower Invite {All Things Baby Guest Post}


Hello Hello Johnny In A Dress Readers!!  
I am Meesh from Finding Michelina!  First I want to say thank you to the lovely Natalie for letting me hang out here today and second CONGRATULATIONS on your peanut!!

So today we are going to look at a jungle themed baby shower invite made using my lovely Silhouette, paper punches and picmonkey!!

This is one of those easy peasy photo DIYs... here we go!!

Create your design on picmonkey or silhouette
Save as a pic and open up in your powerpoint program
Resize, print and cut!

Take your blank card and add your cover using Tombow

Your card with the front added....

Take and add your clouds which can be cut in a variety of ways: paper punch, by hand or silhouette/cricut

For the clouds I added the left and right one with regular Tombow and then used 3-d square mounts for the center one so it POPS so to speak :)

Add your animals 1st with the Tombow and then add your long grass, then both short grasses and trim the very edges {Both animal shapes and grass were cut using my Silhouette}

Your finished front of the card!!

But seriously how cute is this theme?!

And the inside of your card {use the same method of creating on program of your choice, saving as a pic, opening in powerpoint, resizing and printing!}

And last but not least... a pic of the insert asking people to bring a onesie to participate in the onesie game!

What?!  You don't know what the onesie game is?!  Well let me explain!!  You see you ask everyone {who wants to participate} to bring a onesie that describes them {the goes}, their relationship with mom or to baby to be, an inside joke etc.  You hang them up at the shower and then mom gets the guess who each onesie comes from AND she gets a bunch more onuses!!  Cause from what I understand you can never have enough!! :0

Hope you liked our jungle theme invites!! Please let me know if you have any questions!
And thanks again Natalie for letting me hang out!!
Peace out Cub Scouts!!
