Stamped Letters {tutorial}

I'll admit it, when I purchased these cardboard letters I had no intention of decorating them this way. I had every intention of covering them in fabric like many other tutorials I had seen done that way. However, as I began moving things around in my daughters room I put the letters up "temporarily" on her dresser naked of any fabric and I grew fonder and fonder of the cardboard texture and color. I then recalled a pin I can across on Pinterest where someone used crate paper and stamps to decorate it...which I loved! So it was decided that that's what I was going to do instead! I really like how they turned out.



Here's what you'll need:
Cardboard letters
Speedy-Carve kit
Paint/paint brush or stamp pad


Using the tracing paper provided, draw whatever shape it is you wish to use in pencil.

Lay the drawing face down on the rubber pad provided in the kit and gently rub your finger over the drawing.

Remove the paper.

Using the carving tool provided in the kit carve around your drawing.

The edges don't need to be pretty, just deep enough so they don't affect your stamp.

Put a little paint on your stamp and press. That's it! 

For my letters I chose to do a heart stamp and a dot. I think they look really sweet :)

 


Happy Crafting!

High-Waisted Sash Skirt {Tutorial}

Ok so I'm officially on a skirt kick as this is my third one in 2 weeks. With spring in the air I just can't help but want to live in spring things! This diy skirt is similar to the other one I did but this one has a sash and is fuller...which I think is way fun! To purchase this exact fabric go to my etsy shop! If you're not up for making it you're in luck! I now sell it on my etsy shop too! You should also check it out on my friend over at Stylish Petite!

Sweet as a Berry Little Girl Dress {tutorial}

With Valentine's day lurking around the corner it's only natural for a blogger like myself to begin thinking of cute ways to incorporate the holiday. When I came across this strawberry fabric I fell in love with it's sweetness and decided that I would make my daughter a Valentine's day inspired dress. You may remember my Valentine's day inspired onesie from last year...Now if only my daughter would get up and walk in it instead of scoot around on her booty getting the beautiful fabric all dirty! Sigh...someday!
