Halloween Wreaths

I am busy getting ready for Halloween. It seems like I start so early, but then boom! It’s creeped right up on me. I am hoping to get my porch decor out the last weekend of September. Crazy? Well, I live in Utah and Halloween is a BIG deal here.

I love black and white for Halloween. It’s classic.

DIY Back to School Tote Bag + Gift Tag

Looking for the perfect gift for your child’s teacher? Consider a fun DIY back to school tote bag and coordinating gift tag – perfect all on its own or filled with treats! This post contains affiliate links. 

DIY On the Playground Teacher's Tote + Free Cut File

The start of school sneaked up on me this year. While some of the kids in our area don’t head back for a few weeks, Jay’s girls are back in the classroom next Tuesday! Fortunately they’re troopers and are ready to hit the books, whether I am ready for it or not.

Since I now have back to school on the brain, I thought I’d whip up a little teacher thank you gift. I’ve always thought that starting the year with a little welcome is a good idea.

DIY Back to School Tote Bag + Gift Tag

While I’d like to pretend that I am not old enough to have two girls in high school, it’s toootally possible. So, it shouldn’t be any sort of shock to tell you that I actually CAN remember when Will Smith was the FRESH PRINCE OF BEL-AIR. Not only that, I can remember the entire theme song. In fact, it’s been running through my mind for weeks…

In an effort to get it out of my system, I am putting it on a back to school tote bag. I thought the line “On the playground is where I spend most of my days” would be fun for an elementary teacher gift.

I created a simple cut file and added it to a little tote bag. Really, it could be used on just about anything from a t-shirt to a mug, but I needed a little something to hold the loot I was planning to purchase.

Here’s what you will need to recreate this project:
On the Playground Cut File (PNG or SVG)
Electronic Cutting Machine (I use this machine.)
Heat Transfer Vinyl (I use Expressions Vinyl Red Easy Weed HTV.)
Iron (this one works great for these projects!)
Tote Bag (I purchased mine at Hobby Lobby, but this one is similar.)
Welcome Back to School Gift Tag File
Color Printer (this is the one I love to use at home)
White Cardstock
Paper Trimmer
Baker’s Twine

Here’s how to create the DIY back to school tote bag:

DIY On the Playground Teacher's Tote + Free Cut File

  1. Download the “On the Playground” Cut File.
  2. Upload the design to your design software and create the appropriately sized layout. Be sure to mirror the image so that the text appears backwards on the screen. Feed the heat transfer material into your machine with the glossy side down. Select HTV in the media menu and cut.
  3. Peel the negative space in the design off the plastic backing, leaving only the words on the clear plastic transfer sheet.
  4. Position the design on the tote bag face down so that you see it through the clear transfer sheet. Your text should be facing the right direction at this point.
  5. Place a this cloth or parchment paper over the design and place a heated iron on top PRESSING FIRMLY into the design for 45-60 sec.
  6. Remove the iron and cloth and gently peel up the transfer sheet. If the HTV continues to stick to the transfer sheet, replace the cloth and iron again making sure to apply pressure.

Here’s how to create the tote bag tag:

  1. Download the Welcome Back to School gift tag file.
  2. Print the file on a color printer. Alternatively, take the file into your local print shop.
  3. Trim the gift tags down to size.
  4. Punch a hole at the top of the tag and tie to your gift using baker’s twine.

I’ve filled my bag up with teacher supplies and some fun apple scented lotion and hand sanitizer, but the sky’s the limit on this one.

The temperatures are still ridiculously high, but fall is right around the corner. It’s my favorite season and I can’t wait to celebrate! In the meantime, I am cooling off with one of my favorite sweet treats – a glass of Simply Apple (Nope. Not an ad. I genuinely love this apple juice!).

DIY Quad Goals T-Shirt and Free Cut File

DIY Quad Goals T-shirt. Free cut file and instructions.

We’re entering into the “dog days” of summer and the last thing that anyone wants to do (especially me) is to work out in this heat. Unfortunately, laying off isn’t an option for Jay’s daughter who’s got to be in “soccer shape” for high school team tryouts. While she’s super motivated on her own, I couldn’t think of a better way to support her than ply her with liquids and snag her new workout gear…Every thing is easier when you’ve got a cute outfit on, right?

DIY Quad Goals T-Shirt

Honestly I feel like this entire post COULD be blamed on a “good deal” at Target. All of their workout gear was on sale the other day and while I was able to find tons of cute bottoms, I just didn’t see a shirt that would work out really well.

They had loads of cute t-shirts with witty sayings, but honestly a lot of them weren’t 100% appropriate for a teenager (or at least teenagers in my house). After a bit of poking around I’d added a couple of pairs of shorts to my cart, but not a single shirt! Rather than get down in the dumps about the lack of shirt though, I decided to create one myself!

DIY Quad Goals T-shirt. Free cut file and instructions.

Here’s what you will need to recreate this project:
Quad Goals Cut File (PNG or SVG)
Electronic Cutting Machine (I use this machine.)
Heat Transfer Vinyl (I use Expressions Vinyl HTV in Black Glitter.)
Iron (This one works great for these projects!)
Lightweight Towel or Teflon Sheets
Lightweight T-Shirt (like this one)

Here’s how to create the t-shirt:

  1. Download the “Quad Goals” Cut File.
  2. Upload the design to your design software and create the appropriately sized layout. Be sure to mirror the image so that the text appears backwards on the screen. Feed the heat transfer material into your machine with the glossy side down. Select HTV in the media menu and cut. (Alternatively, you can print out the design and cut the vinyl by hand with an Xacto knife.)
  3. Peel the negative space in the design off the plastic backing, leaving only the words “Quad Goals” to transfer on the clear plastic transfer sheet.
  4. Position the design on the t-shirt face down so that you see it through the clear transfer sheet. Your text should be facing the right direction at this point.
  5. Place a this cloth or parchment paper over the design and place a heated iron on top PRESSING FIRMLY into the design for 45-60 sec.
  6. Remove the iron and cloth and gently peel up the transfer sheet. If the HTV continues to stick to the transfer sheet, replace the cloth and iron again making sure to apply pressure.

Since squad goals is printed all over everything lately, I knew that QUAD GOALS would be perfect for a teen focused on soccer (have you seen those muscular thighs?!). Thus, the DIY Quad Goals T-Shirt was born. It’s fun seeing her wear it around.

Free Girls Just Wanna Have Sun Cut File

Whether you’re looking for a fun afternoon craft or a totally rad tote for the pool, don’t miss this FREE Girls Just Wanna Have Sun Cut File. This post contains affiliate links. Girls Just Wanna Have Sun Cut File and DIY Tote Bag. Perfect summer craft that can be completed in minutes.

My boyfriend, Jay, and I have officially passed from the giddy get to know you stage that comes with the first year of dating and have firmly moved into picking up on each other’s habits. At least I have. Jay has a penchant for writing alternate lyrics to super popular summer songs and it’s started to rub off on me. About half the time, I find myself singing along to a song without even bothering to decipher the REAL lyrics. Today’s “Girls Just Wanna Have Sun” cut files was inspired by such a moment.

Fortunately the silly lyrics came to me in plenty of time to create a summer project. There are still weeks of warm hot sunny days left to sit out and soak up the sun.

Girls Just Wanna Have Sun Cut File

My niece recently came to stay for a few days. Since it was just the two of us, I wanted to have lots of fun activities planned so that she didn’t get bored. To provide a little variety, I decided to invite a few friends and their kids over for a crafternoon. Together, we made fun Girls Just Wanna Have Sun tote bags for the summer. These little totes are the perfect size for carrying all the things you need for the pool or an afternoon at the beach. In fact I liked how they turned out so much, I made one for myself!

Girls Just Wanna Have Sun Cut File and DIY Tote Bag. Perfect summer craft that can be completed in minutes.

To make the tote bags, we cut a mirror image of the free file out on easy weed heat transfer from Expressions Vinyl using a Silhouette and then simply ironed the image on to inexpensive tote bags.

The finished bags are about 14×14 – the perfect size for a rolled up towel, goggles and some sun screen. Though the bag looks great on its own, this “Girls Just Wanna Have Sun” cut file would look equally fantastic on a t-shirt, mug or pillow cover, don’t you think?
