DIY Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head

Hey Hey Friends!

I have a flashback DIY for you today.  Halloween will be here soon enough and if you want to make your costume you may be starting now so I wanted to share the costumes I made last year for Steve and I: Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head!

Halloween Costumes

Last year, I found this great DIY costume post here.  I knew that I could make this super cute and easy and I could use my Cricut to make this happen.  I am excited that this is my first Cricut post!

 So, I started off finding the pieces in my CCR folders.  I purchased the Halloween Rental bundle so I had a lot of options.  I ended up using Frankenstein’s Face (did you notice that Fankenstein’s mouth is actually Mr. Potato Head’s eyebrow?) , Mustaches & Glasses Digital Cartridge, and  Cricut® Tie the Knot Cartridge.  I cut out each of the pieces on super thick card stock to use as a template.  I traced the paper pieces onto felt pieces that I then hot glued onto brown t-shirts.  Finally, I created Mr. and Mrs.  hats to complete the look.

So what do you think?  It was super fun and we had a great time wearing them.  All the kids at both my jobs thought they were super fun!

Mother’s Day

Now that all my Mother’s Day cards have been given out, I can post them on my blog. My fiance and I had a very nice time celebrating Mother’s Day with my family at my aunt’s house in Newport Beach. We haven’t been up there in a while, and it was really great to see my family.

For each of these cards I used the Mother’s Day stamp set from Lawn Fawn for the sentiment and the cute bright flowers. All the washi tape and baker’s twine was from Pick Your Plum. Most of the embellishments I already had in my stash, so I just picked out the ones that were perfect for each card.

This is the Mother’s Day card I made for my mom. I absolutely love the the mint green sparrow that I got from an amazing local craft store (Paper Tales).

This card was made for my future Mother-in-Law. She leaves up north so we weren’t able to be with her this year. I used my Anna Griffin “Poppy” embossing folder for the background and added a paper flower from Pick Your Plum.

This card was for my dad’s mom. I wanted to do something very silly and fun, so I used Lawn Fawn’s Critters Ever After, which I am totally in love with – I wish I could use it on everything. I added a bit of glitter to each of the critters to give them a magical feel. I had an exceptionally fun time with this one.

Finally, this card was for my mom’s mom (my Ita). I used the Cricut Ribbons & Rosettes Cartridge, which she gave me for my birthday. It thought it would be a perfect opportunity to show her the beautiful stuff I could make with the cartridge.
