Spring Showers Planner Stickers: Free Printable

Hi everyone!

It’s time for my weekly planner printable release!

IMG_8680

I had quite a bit of fun designing the umbrellas for this sheet!  I absolutely LOVE how they turned out! 🙂

Here’s a better look at the printable!

This color scheme perfectly matches June in the vertical Erin Condren LifePlanner.  June is so far away though!  This sheet also complements the green theme of March, so I’ll most likely be using it then!

Before I give you the file there are a few things I’d like to say.  I spent a lot of time designing and creating this printable, so please be kind when you use it.

  • Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes printables are for personal use only
  • You may not re-sell, redistribute, or claim this work as your own
  • If you post this on the internet, please give the credit to Pink Bows & Twinkle Toes and link it back to my blog (pinkbowstwinkletoes.com)

Enough of the heavy stuff! Now it’s time for the stickers!

You can download the sticker file here, PBTT Spring Showers Sticker Sheet.

Be sure to tag me in any and all Instagram posts featuring my stickers and your planner! (@pinkbowstwinkletoes and #pinkbowstwinkletoes)  I would love to see what you do with them! 🙂

POPSUGAR Must Have Review – April 2015

Hi everyone!

It’s time for my monthly POPSUGAR Must Have review!

IMG_9791To receive POPSUGAR Must Have each month like I do, click here!

IMG_9739I’m so proud of myself! This month I refrained from looking at any spoilers before my box arrived!

The mystery was so much fun!

IMG_9751Each box comes with a little card detailing each item featured in the box.

IMG_9754Box Contents:

  • Dabney Lee – Dottie Umbrella
  • One Love Organics – Gardenia + Tea Antioxidant Body Serum
  • Produce Candles – Rhubarb Spring Candle
  • Flip & Tumble – 24-7 Bag
  • Potting Shed Creations – Garden-in-a-Bag Basil
  • Mott 50 – $25 Gift Card

IMG_9781Dabney Lee – Dottie Umbrella – Retail Value $20

I absolutely love this umbrella! The patten is adorable!

The polka dots are so much fun, and navy and pink are my favorite colors!

IMG_9787This umbrella is really well made!

I’ve used it once already, and since I live in Florida, I’m sure I’ll be using it again really soon!

IMG_9828One Love Organics – Gardenia + Tea Antioxidant Body Serum – Retail Value $39

I was expecting this serum to be a gel instead of the thin oil that it is.

It wasn’t what I was expecting, but I really do like it!  I’ve used it twice now, and it’s great!

So far, I like it best when applied right after shaving my legs!  My legs are so smooth afterwards!  So awesome!

It smells good too!

IMG_9814Produce Candles – Rhubarb Spring Candle – Retail Value $20

I LOVE this candle!  The packaging is adorable, and it smells fantastic!

IMG_9818The back of the candle has lots of good facts about rhubarb.  Very interesting!

I also got a coupon code for 35% off! What a deal!!

IMG_9773Flip & Tumble – 24-7 Bag – Retail Value $12

I love reusable bags.  I prefer mine to be structured though.

IMG_9801The bag is a decent size.  It’s also nifty that it fits in that tiny, little stretchy pouch.

IMG_9802I like the padded strap!  Such a great feature!

I also got a coupon for 20% off!  I don’t think I’ll use it, but it’s nice to have!

IMG_9821Potting Shed Creations – Garden-in-a-Bag Basil – Retail Value $10

I love this! It’s so cute and fun!

On the back of the bag, there’s lots of information about basil and how to grow this Garden-in-a-Bag.

When I get enough room on my counter top, I’m going to start growing basil!

IMG_9767Special Extra – Mott 50 – $25 Gift Card

I’ve been looking on the Mott 50 website to see if there is anything I’d like to buy.  I found some cute cardigans, but they’re kind of expensive even with the gift card.  I’ll have to see if my mom or any of my friends want to use it!

IMG_9744I really love the April box!  It’s so springy and fun!

Not including the gift card (that I probably won’t use) the total retail value is $101.

That’s the lowest retail value I’ve seen since subscribing in January, but I’m okay with it.  Most of this month’s products are awesome!

Now, I can’t wait for the May box to come out!

What do you think of the April POPSUGAR Must Have box?!

DIY Hand Embroidery Motif – Floral Umbrella

Hi everyone!

I just got back to school from my spring break vacation.  While away, I made a few really cute projects!

This little project and another one I’ll post later in the week, were made while my little, Jessica, and I were delayed in the airport for four hours! Four hours!!! IMG_8649Supplies:

  • Doodle Stitching: The Motif Collection by Aimee Ray (Get a copy here!)
  • Embroidery hoop (4 inch)
  • Embroidery floss
  • Needle
  • Pencil
  • Sharpie
  • Fabric (I used blue gingham)
  • Scissors

IMG_8650DMC Floss Colors:

  • 151 – light pink
  • 603 – medium pink
  • 703 – green
  • 727 – yellow

This is the umbrella pattern we will be following!

It’s so cute and perfect for spring! IMG_8640I like to start by printing out the design and tracing over it with a Sharpie.

The Sharpie makes the lines so much easier to see while you’re tracing! IMG_8644Trace your image onto the fabric. IMG_8646Hoop your fabric.

It’s okay if the image is a little off center.  You can always go back and fix that later! IMG_8652We’re going to start with the light pink thread and Back Stitch the handle and top of the umbrella. IMG_8655Use the medium pink to stitch the dome of the umbrella. IMG_8658Stitch the curved handle as well.

I don’t know why the handle is so fat on one side.  That’s the way the design shows it though, so I just went with it! IMG_8661Continue stitching the upper portion of the umbrella.

If you don’t want to add the floral embellishment, you can stop here. The umbrella is adorable with or without the flower! IMG_8665Use the green thread to stitch the stem.

I used the Back Stitch instead of the Stem Stitch for this part because I still haven’t mastered the Stem Stitch.  Sometimes it works out and sometimes it doesn’t! 🙁 IMG_8667Use the Satin Stitch for the center of the flower.

The Satin Stitch is another stitch that I need a little bit more practice with! Maybe I’ll start making some projects exclusively with the Satin Stitch!  That should definitely help me learn it! IMG_8669Depending on how large your petals are, you can use either Lazy Daisies or the Back Stitch.

I went with the Back Stitch because my petals were a little larger. IMG_8716Once the flower is complete, our project is done!

That was so quick and easy!

I love the way this one turned out!

Happy Crafting!! Bow signature pink
