Mom Tags Necklace {Cricut Design Star Round 2} free printable

Cricut Design Space Star

I am so excited to show you my first project today for the Cricut Design Star..ROUND 2! First of all, let me say how amazing the Cricut Explore is..I have been having so much fun playing with it for the last little bit.  Now on to the project.

Our group chose Military as the theme for the Fashion/Gear week. I have to be REALLY honest. I had to stretch my brain to think of something to do. A few days ago I was with my kids and just thinking about how much I love to have them with me all of the time. I love our time together so I thought I’d make a fun little Mom Tags Necklace (instead of Dog Tags) with my kids names on them to wear around.

You guys, this machine is amazing! I designed these mini dog tags up and cut them out, but the best thing about this machine is that I also, at the same time, had it draw the names and designs that I wanted on it. Look at how cute they are:

 I love seeing their names there and seeing them reminds me how lucky I am to be their mom.

You can see the size I made them while they are in my hand and I think they would even be cute smaller as well! And the best thing about the Explore is that you can design them in Cricut Design Space and make them any size you want!

I cut them out on a really thick and shiny silver cardstock and cut one for the back of each as well.

I glued them together and then I took a layer of clear vinyl and cut the dog tag shape out again and placed it right on top on the front and back. I finished the sides with a quick silver marker run over them and I’m just in love with how they turned out!

I also thought these could be super cute for birthday parties (think boy’s party favors) or even cute “best friends” necklaces for little girls…the possibilities are endless!

Get the Look for Less with Moxie Jean {Giveaway}

So there are a few things that I love about the fall. I love the smells, the cooler weather, but you know what I love most? Back to School shopping. Weird, right?! I have always loved it. From the time I was little shopping for school supplies and clothes was always so much fun. As a kid, I didn’t realize what a huge cost this was for my parents. (I grew up in a small town so we would drive 4 hours to the nearest mall to shop.) As a parent, and living in a big city, the opportunities to shop are everywhere! I like to shop throughout the year for my kids. I love to shop sales and clearance racks for the next year, so I was thrilled to find out about Moxie Jean, an online consignment shop that carries great name brands such as Gap, Gymboree and Tea Collection.

I found some really great clothes and my kids were super excited when the box came all for them! They had a blast having a little fashion show for me as they tried their new clothes on.

I had the easiest time finding tons of great clothes for my 3 youngest, but had a little harder time finding something great for my older 2 boys. I have looked back a few times after my initial shopping trip, and found a few things for them, but was super happy with the selection I found for my younger 3. Take a look at their spoils and see what a great deal I got:

Cute Freestyle Revolution Jeans for $7.99:

Janie and Jack cropped pants for $9.99:

Gap Shirt and Shorts for $16.99:

Gymboree skirt for $10.99:

Gap outfit, H&M shorts for $5.99:

Crazy 8 Jacket for $4.99:

Greendog dress for $6.99:

Aren’t those all so cute?! Did you know that the average person will spend $231 on school clothes this year and another $124 on shoes? I love that by shopping from resale shops, not only are you getting a great deal, but helping with the reduce/reuse/recycle movement. I also LOVE that Moxie Jean has free shipping on orders more than $50 or $5.95 for any others. AND right now, Moxie Jean will give you $10 of Moxie Money when you buy $50 or more (or $25 when you spend $100). Talk about stretching your money further! I had such a great experience and hope you will too when you check it out!
