Confession time. We moved into our current home about 2 years ago and I've been so busy since then that I haven't really began to decorate until recently. (To make matters worse, I actually just unpacked a box that had been sitting in my office this whole time too, LOL!) In our family room we have a bunch of family photos up on the wall mixed with a few small pieces of artwork, but we had a little spot still left open that had been driving me nuts this whole time so I decided it was time to finally make something that would go there...

How's your decor holding up? Do you need to replace some of it? Here are a few various patriotic projects you can quickly whip up using craft vinyl and your ScanNCut... Continue reading

Hey everyone, exciting stuff happening on my blog this week for National Craft Month! First up is a great home decor project I want to share with you. I found these great frames when I was out shopping and thought how fun they would be to use at home or in my art studio since they have little clips you can hang photos or artwork on. The frames are great on their own but I thought it would be cool to jazz them up a bit by cutting a warm cuddly phrase out of craft vinyl and applying it to the glass. And, I not only made one of these...I made two! So a random lucky blog reader can win one along with a bundle of ScanNCut goodies!... Continue reading
