80s-Inspired DIY Party Cracker Place Cards

If you’ve stepped into a party store lately, you’ve likely seen some version of party crackers. They’re all the rage right now, and they’re so darn festive!

For our recent “Bad to the Bone” 80s-Inspired Halloween Party, I created a super easy DIY version of these cuties, and used them to mark the place settings. They turned out so cool! What I really love is that they serve double duty…they act as place cards and they can be used as party favors!

Take a peek below for the super easy how-to instructions for making these 80s-Inspired DIY Party Crackers.

DIY Halloween Sugar Scrub Gift Idea with Cricut

DIY Halloween Sugar Scrub Gift Idea with Cricut

Wanna surprise your pals, coworkers, or your kids’ teachers with a fun little Halloween treat? This DIY Halloween Sugar Scrub Gift Idea is sure to do the trick!

We all love a little pampering every now and then, so sugar scrub makes a wicked cool Halloween treat. Tint it to look like candy corn, and it’s just boo-tiful!

To kick it up a notch and make it even more spooktacular, personalize the jars with a sassy saying. I used my Cricut® Explore Air™ 2 Special Edition, Martha Stewart Machine Bundle to jazz up the jars with some fun personalization. If you’ve been following my blog and have seen my “Mint to Be” Baby Shower or my “She’s a Succa for Him” Succulent Bridal Shower, then you know how obsessed I am with my Martha machine.

It can cut over 100 different materials at twice the speed of previous models, and the bundle (which is available exclusively at Michaels) includes twenty-five exclusive Martha Stewart images. This is in addition to the thousands of ready-made projects and images that are available in Cricut’s Design Space! There is so much fun to be had with this bundle!!!

Once upon a time, three fabulous, very well-known brands joined forces for a dynamic collaboration.  A girl (who isn't very well-known and works at home in her pajamas) was asked to be a part of it.  The girl, realizing what an unprecedented opportunity this was, fainted, came to, then excitedly got to work on the most fun partnership ever...kicking off the celebration with this Celestial Graduation Party!

You guys, I have been holding this secret in for months, and I'm SO EXCITED to finally spill the beans!

Donut Gift Tags for National Donut Day

Donut Gift Tags for National Donut Day

If you're like me, you don't need an excuse to eat donuts.

But for those of you that do, thank goodness they've created a holiday just for you:  National Donut Day!

Yeah, baby!  This year it falls on Friday, June 5th.

It's a day where we can splurge on these sweet little bites of Heaven to our heart's content, and don't have to worry for a second about calories.

Yep, that's right.  Did you know that donuts are totally calorie-free on National Donut Day?!!  (At least that's what I choose to believe, so if you think otherwise, don't rain on my parade, ok)?

And because everyone should be entitled to indulge, wouldn't it be nice if we paid it forward and gifted donuts to all of our friends?

I think yes, and I was certain you'd agree, so I created some fun little donut gift tags for the occasion.

Sammy & Nat offers a luxe baby collection of 100% pima cotton rompers and onesies, which served as inspiration for the baby shower.

A group of incredibly talented ladies lent their expertise to the celebration, and I was asked to contribute paper accessories.
