Geometric Lace Jewelry with Shrink Plastic!

 I am thrilled to be partnering with Cricut to bring you a few months worth of amazing craft.  This month our topic is fashion and gear.  Our team chose lace as a theme.  I was hung up on that top for a while until I starting searching images of geometric lace.  I fell in love.  So here is my take with some geometric lace jewelry that you can make with shrink plastic!  Yep the very same shrink plastic you watch shrivel up in the oven as a kid.  Let make it all grown up and use it to make shrink plastic jewelry.  The links included in this partnered post are all affiliate links which means that a portion of your purchase will go to support this website.

Make Your Own Pretty Little Pie Art

The fabulous Jen Goode is back this month with another free printable just for you.  This time it is some pie art and tags that you can customize.  Don’t forget to follow Jen at 100 Directions to get even more amazing printables like this throughout the month.

This time of year it seems the air is filled with pie fragrances. School starts and I think of fall and baking. The berries are ripe, whipped cream sounds delicious… on EVERYTHING and I can’t help but thing maybe we should be making more pie. So today’s printable is inspired by just that… yummy pie! 

Originally, Angie and I were talking about creating pretty pie wall decor. Choose your favorite recipe, print it out on a pretty paper, frame it and voila! But as I started drawing, I thought it would be fun to also create gift tags and little cards that you could use to go along with your pie art adventure.
