Get It Done!

Published January 4, 2012 by sweetcraftastrophe

Morning dolls!

How was your NYE? Eventful and safe I hope! Today I’m finally back and ready to get into the swing of things again. So in spirit of the new year I am dedicating this post to all things organizational.

Fun fact: every minute invested in planning will save you 10 minutes down the road
Personally, I totally support this because planning your week gives you a clear image of what you have to do and when plus this allows you to squeeze in some time for random activities. It saves so much time and reduces stress which is what we all want!
Here are a few designs to choose from for your weekly planners! Make it fun and color code each activity or person in your household! So find your fav planner and make this year as productive as you can!

Crafty for Christmas!

Published December 6, 2011 by sweetcraftastrophe

Good morning,

I hope you’re just as excited as I am about Christmas! Only 21 more days! Guess what? Today is also the month-iversary of my blog! Happy 1 month! I’ve been feeling pretty crafty lately and decided to devote 12 days to Christmas crafts, foods, tablescapes and of course some freebie printables. It truly is the greatest time of year minus the cold weather. I’m not a fan at all but that’s totally off topic. Anyways, I have been working on a few crafts to share with all of you and today I’m going start off the Crafty Christmas series with some adorable place card holders turned into magnets!

    
Ornament Magnets

You will need:
  • Ornaments (as many as you like!)
  • Magnets (you can find these at Michael’s, Hobby Lobby or any craft store)
  • Glue gun or Tacky Glue
  • Scissors
Directions
  1. Lay out your materials
  2. Cut the magnets to your desired size as long as you can’t see it behind the ornament
  3. Glue on the magnet
  4. Press for about 10 seconds and let dry overnight
Here are all my supplies laid out. I had some magnets on hand so I just used these but you’ll need to trim the magnets so they wont be seen
Here are the ornaments I found at Michael’s! They were too cute to pass up plus it was 2 for $1! But beware they do shed glitter as you can see from the picture.
Here’s what it looks like while drying

Here’s my little magnet in action!
Have a sweet day!

Lovin’ me some Chevron!

Published November 17, 2011 by sweetcraftastrophe

Hey there dolls!

So lately, my current obsession has been the Chevron print! Ah I just adore it to pieces! It’s so fun, simple and chic as well as absolutely pretty! I’ve been scouring pinterest and we heart it to find all the BEST chevron prints! Why you ask? Well because there’s no way you can look at these prints without using them!

 Just take a look at these fabulous ways to use this print! I’m so excited to share today’s craft with you not only because it involves Chevron prints but also because crafting is such a relaxing way to spend your evening.
My favorite idea for this print is making mini treat bags, they’re just so freaking cute! I think I know what my birthday party guests will be getting in January!
Yes, this is for a child’s room but its extremely versatile and that’s one thing I look for if I have to buy or make something for any occasion. 
Have you fallen in love with this as much as I have?! I can’t wait to see what else you decide to create with this!
I just couldn’t help myself! It’s an obsession like I told you and I’ve just fallen in love with this print which is a curse and blessing. I’ll probably be changing my phone wallpaper and the desktop screen to chevron as well. But hey, who could blame me? It’s just pure awesomeness!
Ok so enough chit chat, it’s time to get to the crafts! My fav part of the week is as always crafting lovely things and sharing them with you!

Chevron Crafted Letters

This is very simple to make and only takes a few hours with drying time included.
Here’s my first freebie printable  {Download here}

You will need:

  • Wood craft letters (from any craft store like Michaels, Jo-Anns, Hobby Lobby etc..)
  • Tacky glue
  • Pencil
  • Cardstock (white)
  • Scissors or X-Acto 
  • Ruler

 Directions

  1. Lay out all your materials
  2. Print off your chevron print in any color of your choosing
  3. Lay the non-printed (white) side facing you and place your wood letter on top
  4. Then, take your pencil and just trace around your letter a few times so the line is clearly visible
  5. Once that’s done start cutting around the traced lines
  6. Take your print and lay it on top of your letter to make sure that everything lines up exactly
  7. Alright, now you can glue down the print and hold firmly for about 10 seconds.  **Tip: Take a textbook or dictionary and place it on top of your letter for 10 seconds to secure it firmly.**
  8. After you’ve finished that let it dry for a day and then you’re ready to hang it up on your wall.

Send me some of your pictures of your fantastic new Chevron inspired wall art! I would love to show off my viewers’ creativity!

Have a sweet day!
