Dinosaur Tee for Girls (and technically boys) - Toddler Saurus Tee

This post contains affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.

If I'm being totally honest, I mostly just want to show off how cute the photos of my daughter are, but the shirt is just as cute and the whole reason I wanted to do a "photo shoot" with her in the first place.

Our toddler is super obsessed with dinosaurs right now. Serious kudos to Amazon Prime for having Dino Dana. Finding anything geared toward girls with dinosaurs is harder than you'd think, so while I find Dana to be slightly annoying, my two year old will sit there motionless for a good solid 30 minutes or more (this is an amazing accomplishment trust me).

I'm also always on the hunt for dino-centered stuff these days; the pink Jurassic Park shirt was a major find for us.

But I was really excited that this image was included in the recent Mega Craft Bundle I just bought. (They all include a commercial license by the way.) I know a lot of people create and design their own, but I don't have the software and I'd rather spend my limited precious crafting time making the projects.

One of the things I love so much about having a Cricut, is that I can choose my colors. So this seemly boy geared design was completely adaptable for my sparkle fairy glitter dinosaur obsessed little girl.


She loved the shirt immediately, which involved a lot of yelling "Is my baby dinosaur!"  and some petting before I could get the top on. Lets just say she proved to be an extremely challenging model, so you'll have to forgive my biased thrill at how adorable (I think) she is:




This was not an intended part of the photo shoot, but ended up being hilarious anyway.






After a good solid hour trying to get the perfect shot (and my husband laughing at me for thinking I could get our two year old to just pose for me).... I finally succeeded!

New Color Fill In Cartridge from Cricut Design Space!

This post contains affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.

It was Valentines last week, so what was I up doing until 11:30pm the night before? Making Valentines for my daughter's class of course!

My mom posted to the photo I shared: "All the other mom's just bought Paw Patrol."

Um, Paw Patrol? I have a Cricut...


Now this, this is how we creative/borderline obsessive crafters do Valentines.



The color cards were a HUGE hit, because yes, they were not just Paw Patrol and they did not include more sugar (seriously, I'm a bad mom though, I let my toddler eat all 5 suckers when we got home) for a room full of kids who were already amped-up on cupcake frosting as their morning snack. 

My favorite though was how the simple teacher cards turned out. 


Supplies:

1. I just used standard white cardstock
Nothing fancy, since the kids were going to just scribble on them anyway.

I started out with the color cards which I found by searching Valentines Cards in the projects. The teacher cards however, I designed myself.

Here is what I used on this project; simple right?

 

I will mention that the DJ Flirt is a paid font, but worth every penny. I have used it so many times because I love the heart accents. If you subscribe to Cricut Access you get 10% off the purchase.

I used the square flourish note card and just sized a smaller one in the middle and used two different colors to make sure that they cut in different layers. Then I just used a text box to type in what I wanted it to say in the DJ Flirt font.




I shared this project with the Design Space Facebook group that I'm a part of and the number one question I got was where did I find the kiss, so I'm sharing it here as well. 

First, you have to be in your design canvas. In your canvas you are going to select Images from the left-hand side. 


Next you'll click the link to change your view to Cartridges and search for filled.



There are now two Filled cartridges that will color in with the pens. One for everyday images and one for Christmas. The Christmas one, by the way, was not there when I did these last week so I hope that means there are a lot more to come!



HAPPY CRAFTING!

I am absolutely obsessed with the mandala / zentangle images. So far I've undertaken a couple different dragons, but am always on the hunt for more.

I am setup to receive notification from my Cricut Design Space Group I follow on Facebook and absolutely loved this gem someone posted over the weekend the most awesome Stitch mandala which led me to follow the comment string to see where I could get it. This lead me to SVGs for Geeks.

I haven't specifically found this Stitch yet and I have no idea how long it will take me to find him since it doesn't say how many pages are in the mandala section but I'm sure excited to see what this site has no matter how long it takes me to go through it!
