May the Fourth Be With You

May the Fourth Be With You!

Cricut has just launched their first series of Star Wars Images in Cricut Design Space and we are in LOVE! My rebel princess and her buddy were thrilled with their new Star Wars shirts and couldn't wait for May the 4th to wear them to school.  

Want to make some of these cute shirts yourself? They're quick and easy and you'll have a blast with the new Star Wars collection! 

What you'll need to make the shirts:

Cricut Explore Air 2 (or your favorite Cricut machine)
T-shirts in your favorite colors
Darth Likes To Party and Rebel Princess images in Cricut Design Space

For all you rebel princesses out there, this shirt is for YOU! The Rebel Princess image is ready to go in Design Space so just edit the image to the size you'll need and cut using your favorite Cricut machine. Be sure to select "mirror image" as you cut out your text. I used Foil Iron On in violet and my trusty EasyPress to iron on the image to the shirt. 

 Select the Darth Likes To Party image in Design Space and cut out using black iron on using your Cricut machine. Darth Vader needed a little sparkle so I added a glittery party hat using Glitter Iron On in aqua. (I think it suits him well, don't you?)

So come on over to the Dark Side, we have cupcakes....and they're delicious! ;-)

Be sure to check out the entire collection of Star Wars images in Cricut Design Space, you'll love creating awesome Star Wars shirts for the whole family.

Have a happy Star Wars Day and May the Fouth be with you!

Minnie Mouse Party with TownleyGirl

This review is based on my opinion. I was provided the sample free of charge by
TownleyGirl.  All ideas and opinions are my own. This post contains affiliate links. 

We're off to Disneyland! 

And with the help of TownleyGirl, we were able to surprise our daughter in a fun and festive way! 
Our girl LOVES Disneyland so to celebrate our upcoming vacation to the Happiest Place on Earth, we invited a few of her buddies over to party hard with Minnie Mouse! 

Check out the rest of the party below!

 Dress up a white cake by attaching Minnie Mouse ears to the top. I used my CRICUT MACHINE to cut out the ears and then I glued toothpicks to the ears and placed it on top of the cake. Make it even easier on yourself and use a store bought cake! I loved how adorable it turned out and the girls thought it was the cutest thing ever.

It's the tiny details I love the most in a party and these darling Minnie Mouse straws were no exception. I cut out tiny Minnie Mouse silhouettes and adhered them to pink paper straws. I also cut out Cinderella's castle using vinyl and attached the image to the front of the glass milk bottles.

A Minnie Mouse banner strung across the party table was a quick and simple project to make. I cut out Minnie Mouse silhouettes, punch holes through the ears and strung them up with pink bakers twine. 
Love those quick and easy projects!

The girls were thrilled with all the adorable Minnie Mouse lip balm and fingernail polish sets we gave out at the party! They immediately began painting their nails in teal and sky blue. What I love about the Minnie Mouse Kiss it Paint it Set is the nail polish is water-based, peelable and and non-toxic. The girls had a blast painting their fingernails, peeling the paint off and then painting them over again. Plus the nail polish has a sweet berry scent! 

The little party guests loved all the fun Minnie Mouse purses and loved filling them up with the sparkly lip glosses and balms. 

How adorable are these Minnie Mouse Patch-it-Perfect Lip Balm Sets ? Those tiny ears just kill me! 

The guests were treated to goodie bags filled with Minnie Mouse and Daisy Duck nail polish and scented lip balms.

This Disney Bound tote was easy to create using my Cricut machine and of course I had to fill it with all the Disney essentials! The Minnie Mouse Glam Her Hair 7 Piece Set  is every Minnie Mouse lover's dream!  From glittery bows to a light up mirror, this hair set has it all!

The girls loved the Daisy Duck and Minnie Mouse hair brush and adorable bows. They took turns fixing each others hair using all the fun accessories. 

We're counting down the days until we're in Disneyland and this sweet little Minnie Mouse party just got us even more excited! 
HUGE thanks to TownleyGirl for supplying all the wonderful favors! The girls were in Disney heaven!

Ladybug Picnic with Oriental Trading

                       Ladybug Picnic

My friend's little girl recently turned 1 and I was thrilled when she asked if I could help her come up with some fun ideas for a ladybug picnic party.

Oriental Trading has so many adorable ladybug supplies to help you throw the ultimate ladybug picnic party.

Here's what you'll need to put together a fun-filled ladybug party!
The invitations were placed inside mini picnic baskets and handed out to the guests. Who wouldn't love to receive an invite inside a picnic basket? Too cute!

I used my  Cricut Explore Air 2  to cut out these sweet ladybug invitations. All the details of the party were printed on white cardstock, cut out and placed on top of the body of the ladybug. The wings are attached towards the top with a tiny brad so that they're able to open and close.

Echo Park Paper- Good Day Sunshine was the perfect paper line to create these sweet boxed lunches for the little guests. I cut the boxes out using my Cricut, filled them with kid-approved food  and then tied them with red bakers twine and tucked in plastic utensils.

Of course I had to add a few of those adorable adhesive ladybugs to the boxes! 

Ladybug Picnic

It's not a party unless party hats are involved! I used my  Cricut machine cut out the darling hats in no time and I added a bit of white tissue to the top and a few ladybugs to the front of the hats.

Bug Juice aka lemonade was a big hit at the picnic with these glass milk bottlesFor added cuteness, attach adhesive ladybugs to the bottles and tie polkadot straws with bakers twine to the bottles as well.

During the picnic, the kids were given little favor boxes with ladybug bubbles placed inside. They had a blast blowing their bubbles and running around with their ladybug pinwheels. It was the perfect spring activity and kept the kids engaged for a long time!

After the picnic, the guests enjoyed yummy birthday cake using this adorable Ladybug Party Pack. Ladybug plates, cups and napkins greeted the little guests as they gobbled down all that delicious birthday cake.
