Giant Pantone Wall Swatch

We’re back with our favorite babes from across the four corners of the Internet for our quarterly color challenge! We’ve already done orchid, gold, and hot pink, but today it’s all about that sunshine yellow! We love the iconic and graphic look of those Pantone Color swatches. Why not have some giant ones hanging on the wall? This little project is so easy it’s silly, but we love how it packs a big punch of color you’d get from painting a wall, while still having that modern and graphic element. Here’s how you’ll do it: Supplies: White Poster board (or … Read more

Maybe the 4th of July has come and gone, but it’s one of our favorite holidays collectively, and the valley we live is the best celebration around.

Popsicle Garland

It’s raining garlands hallelujah (or we’re really sorry, depending how you feel about garlands!) We whipped this garland up for a BBQ we had all together this past week and Cal can vouch for it’s authenticity as he tried to lick one. They couldn’t be easier, and definitely doable without a Cricut, but with the Explore this only takes a few minutes! Here’s how you’ll do it: Gather 12×12 craft foam sheets in multiple colors (we used 7 here repeating them each twice) The project page has both bitten and whole popsicles so as you make each color you’ll have … Read more

Ice Cream Cone Garland

We have an awesome craft idea from the world’s biggest sweetheart, Kelly of Cloudy Day Gray! We first told you about Kelly and the story of her Mighty Matilda here. So when she asked us to contribute a simple craft idea to brighten the rooms of families with children in pediatric intensive care, we jumped at the idea. These ice cream banners were brought to NYC this month along with totes, stencils, and window clings. Kelly was also able to sell the banners in an effort to raise money and awareness during the 2014 NYC Life Liver Walk. Go Kelly! “Forget about National … Read more
