Super Saturday Crafts

This is a really fun Super Saturday Craft project.  We textured the wood using a vinegar and steel wool process (Directions on our website) then applied this really cute Vinyl Design. Decorate it up a bit with a bow or leave it plain and it will become one of your favorite Christmas decorations. Vinyl is available on our website Vinyl Gifts and More.

Medal Holder Plaques

If you children or spouse are anything like mine, you will find their medals and racing bibs all over the house.  I decided it was time to start hanging them up and show off all of their accomplishments.  At this time we are selling the vinyl in two different styles. ("Dream, Believe, Conquer", and "All Star.")  We will be making more styles for all different sports.  If you don't want to make the board yourself, we will be offering finished boards soon on our website
These boards are 18 inches long with 8 hooks.

Easter Subway Art Designs

Subway Art is a fun way to say a lot in an artful way.  You can use the vinyl to put it directly on a board, wall, or tile or get more creative and order the negative form and use it as a stencil (not all subway art is available in the negative form in smaller sizes).  Take some craft paint and paint each  word a different color, remove the vinyl, and you have a one of a kind artwork made by YOU!   Learn how to paint your Subway Art HERE.

Here are two new Easter designs.

Home School

This has nothing to do with crafts.  I wanted to write about something that I have been thinking about for a long time.  I home school some of my children.  I have done k12 (free online public school) in the past.  I really liked it, but this year I wanted to come up with my own curriculum.  I was torn with so many options. I read many blogs, websites, and asked many people their opinions.  In the search for the best curriculum for my children I have come across some awesome websites that I wanted to share. 

1. Layers of Learning : This by far is our favorite.  I can use their units for my whole family.  This year we are starting with their first year and it is ancient history,   principles of geography, astronomy, motion, atoms & reactions, plants, ancient art, and art principles.  They sell the the units on their website as a PDF, or you can by them in book form from

2.  Reading: My children love the AR (accelerated reading)  program at school.  They don't offer the program for home school.  I did some searching and I found a website out there that does reading tests.  I wanted to make sure my child was understanding what she was reading.  She is not a big test taker, but she loves this website.

3. Spelling: I have some children that are awesome spellers and some that really struggle with it.  I really enjoy the Spelling Workout by Modern Curriculum Press. 

Saxon Math: It is the best math curriculum out there.  It does not have colorful pages, and it is not fluffy, but it is a great math program that is constantly reviewing old concepts with new. 

Language Arts:   I am still trying to find my favorite.  I saw a website I might try.  Has anyone used this for their English?

Great News for Jar Lanterns

Thanks to our wonderful customers, we got some new info on Jar Lanterns.  Normally people use the Frosted Spray in a can to coat the outside of the jars.  We have found that there can be some problems with the spray.  

If you handle your jars, the oils from your fingers can transfer to the jar. When you spray the jar, it looks covered but in fact, everywhere your fingers touched, the frosted spray can peel off when you apply the vinyl.  Our suggestion is to wash your jars in the dishwasher prior to using, then either wear gloves or only touch the jar from the lip of the jar.

Now we have found that you can use a different spray.  We used the Krylon Crystal Clear Flat spray, and it will gave a similar look as the frosted but is less temperamental.  We tried it putting our fingers all over the jar prior to spraying and it didn't peel off when the vinyl was applied.

We do not guarantee that this will work all of the time.  We do suggest that you use clean jars and that your hands are fairly clean also.  If you are planning to do a large number of these, please test one or two before you do them all.  By the way, the Flat spray was less expensive than the frosted!  

For more information on how to do these jars, CLICK HERE.  If you wish to order these (they do come in a variety of designs), CLICK HERE.  

Remember, these don't always have to be used as jar lanterns.  Try putting other things in your decorated jar - like candy or some other fun items.  These make great gifts for teachers, neighbors, grandparents, and that hard to gift boss!

Away in the Manger Shadow Box

Come check out our new Christmas shadow box vinyl "Away in the Manger" on our website. Our "Jingle All the Way" shadow box has been such a huge hit, so we decided to come up with more designs.  Also I noticed this week (Aug 30, 2014) at Michaels they are having a sale on shadow boxes.  Buy one get one free. 

How to:
-(1) 8x8 shadow box
-Vinyl from
- Wood paper from a craft store or print out wood scrapbooking paper from the internet.
- Ribbon for embellishment. (optional)

1. Take the backing off the shadow box.
2. Fill the bottom with cut raffia.  My pieces were around 2 inches long.
3. Cut the wood paper to fit in the box for the background. 
4. Put the back cover back on the box.
5. Place the vinyl on the front of the box.  I placed my vinyl about an inch above the bottom so it looks like they are in the hay. 
6. Tie a bow around the box if desired. 

This is a simple and fun project to do.  Great for super Saturdays and other craft groups.  Also great to make for a gift!

Super Saturday Wood Pumpkin

Here is a great new Super Saturday craft project.  Soooo cute for your home and so much fun to make.  We provide the wood and vinyl, you paint and decorate!

Kit comes with boards, stem, and vinyl.  We first glued the boards together with wood glue.  We then painted using craft paint (we used orange and brown and lightly mixed them then painted on a thin layer so that the grain of the wood would show through).  When the paint dried, we applied the vinyl in the corner, glued on the stem with wood glue, and decorated with twine and wire (curled for a fun effect).

Purchase this kit and others at

I Love to See the Temple

Order the "I Love to See the Temple" in positive format. So cute on glass blocks to use as night lights or display in a child's room.  The sample is shown on an 8" block (vinyl cut at 6.3") in Violet vinyl (a piece of vellum has been placed in the back to help the vinyl pop). We also have this in the negative for a different look.  These come in 4 sizes - to fit a 6" tile, 8" glass block, 8x8" board, and 12" tile.  We have most of the temples so either a child's name or the temple may be put in the center of the words.
