Father’s Day is just around the corner! I can’t believe it’s almost June 17th, already! Haven’t gotten dad the perfect gift yet? Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered.
This little gem is a DIY, custom made for your special guy by you! All you need is a $3.97 clock from Walmart (they come in White, Black, Red, Silver and Gold), Cricut Premium Vinyl, a piece of cardstock, and your Cricut Maker or Cricut Explore.
You can see in the top photo I added a little extra touch with the red stripes. I think they go a long way to adding just that something to make it pop. You could add a personalized name, add stars for the numbers, add a logo for your business, you name it… the sky is the limit! How about a personalized clock for the kids room?
You know I have a step by step tutorial for you! You can grab my Design Space file here or start from stratch and make your own! Don’t forget to add the hole in the middle if you start from scratch, my file already has it in there for you.

That, my friends, is Miss Evie! My darling, sweet grand daughter. She will be two in August and I just haven’t stayed on top of her scrapbooks.
I’m not sure why. I really enjoy the peaceful process of scrapbooking. I started my papercraft journey by scrapbooking.
A good friend, Jodie, sent me a scrapbooked birthday card many years ago, and I thought it was the most coolest thing, ever! I started scraping that same week.
Paper crafting has always been my “go to” fun place. I love the texture and layers and papers. Heck, I even love the different adhesives, cutters, scissors and ephemera. I am an office supply junkie.
Do you ever circle back to a craft that you used do to and wonder why it’s been so long since you’ve endulged? Leave me a comment and let me know what crafts you would love to get back into. I hope this is the first of many more layouts to come.
P.S. I used my Cricut Maker to cut all of the background pieces.
What is it about everything baby that is just…instantly cute! I had a big response to the baby bib gift set I posted earlier, so I decided to create a tutorial.
This project is PERFECT for a beginner sewist. The bib can easily be made with 2 fat quarters (for a reversible look), or just one if you don’t mind both sides matching. I prefer to use a flannel or terry cloth fabric for the back just to give it that soft feel and add some extra absorbency. I used a Cricut Quilting Kit for the fabric. I just love how all of their Riley Blake patterned fabrics go so well together.
If you haven’t upgraded to the Cricut Maker yet yet, don’t worry. You can make this with the Cricut Explore (or even a Silhouette). Simply follow along and cut the pattern pieces in cardstock, then use the cardstock as a pattern piece to cut your fabric by hand. Easy Peasy! Of course, I love using the Cricut Maker to cut all of my fabric pieces.
I’ve provided you with the free SVG file to use for your pattern. You can download it here. Be sure and turn off the word layers when you cut the file.
The bib is already sized for you, simply upload it into Cricut Design Space (or Silhouette Studio) and you’re ready to go.
Here’s a picture of another gift set I made using this pattern.

I’m a girl… I think we are born with a “I love a good sparkle” gene. It’s simply a part of who we are. Well, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
… and then there’s Evie
Evie has earned the name “Drama Queen” from her mommy. Now, as Grandma (or Lolly, as they all me, I have to defend my sweet little angel grand-daughter. Maybe, she really is a drama queen, but she’s cute!
