January 26, 2017

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Cricut. The opinions and text are all mine.


Ever wondered how to upload your own image into Cricut Design Space? Let me walk you through it.Have you ever wondered how people upload an image into Cricut Design Space? It’s really easy and it’s just a matter of a few simple steps.

You first want to find an image you like or your can scan a drawing of your own and convert it to a .jpeg file. I found these ladybugs on Adobe Stock because I have an account. You can easily find an image online that you like and use it for personal use. Please don’t take other people’s hard work and pass it off as your own unless you pay for it. Red ladybugs beetle vintage seamless patternEver wondered how to upload your own image into Cricut Design Space?

Ever wondered how to upload your own image into Cricut Design Space? Let me walk you through it.So because we’re uploading an image of your own, we first want to make sure it’s saved to our computer in the right format. Cricut Design Space accepts .jpeg, .png, .svg, .gif, .bmp and .dxf files. If you have any other file that needs to be converted, there are websites dedicated to converting your file into the file you desire, you just need to google it and it’ll show up.

So informative and usefulThe Alison Show is a crazy fun, creative blog and she put together a whole course about sugar cookies, this course cost $30 and it’s really worth every penny. I realized every mistake I was doing before. She really gives a comprehensive recipe that makes a dang good cookie. In my cookies I added almond extract and lots of lemon juice in the royal icing. I usually buy the Wilton colors for the dye but I used the Americana and I really liked the outcome and I recommend those. The cookies are delicious and last forever and figuring out what theme I wanted was even more fun. I know I’ll be making these in the future!Create these one of a kind sugar cookies using The Alison Show's recipe. So informative and useful

Create a memorable Valentines Day with your spouse and create this fun Date Night gift basket to last the whole year only on frenchiewraps.com #YoursandMine #Ad**Just a disclosure and me being a meany pants. All my printables I offer are free for personal use only. I really hope I don’t have to talk to you in my scary mom voice cause my kids don’t like it and I’m sure you wouldn’t either, thanks!

My husband gets a lot of heat from me and not in a good way. I decided this Valentine’s Day that I’d treat him to a gift basket to include some of his favorite treats and continue a tradition that we do with our kids but extend it to him. I created some cheap and fun date night ideas that can be opened and redeemed once per month that will help us live down memory lane. Let me tell you our story. It’s pretty funny and not your ordinary love story.

Create a memorable Valentines Day with your spouse and create this fun Date Night gift basket to last the whole year only on frenchiewraps.com #YoursandMine #AdMy husband, Efi and I met in October 2003. He was visiting from California and I just randomly showed up at a friend of a friend’s house for a party. It was awkward cause I knew a few people but not a lot. I thought he was my friends ex-boyfriend when I saw him far away but as he came closer, things were much better! My brother has a friend who always was so cute and he knew it and he knew I thought it and his name is Garrett, when I saw Efi – he is the Tongan Garrett, lol!

Create a memorable Valentines Day with your spouse and create this fun Date Night gift basket to last the whole year only on frenchiewraps.com #YoursandMine #AdHe knew he was cute and I kind of thought I wasn’t his type, I know now that I’m not his type. We didn’t talk much that night and he ended up going inside the house and I left. We ended up there the same night the following week and he had just gotten dropped off from another date (yes, that’s true). Well, someone asked us to go grab some cheeseburgers from the local fast food joint and since him and I were the only ones not drinking, we were clearly the obvious choice. We went through the drive-thru and had some more opportunity to chat and he was very friendly and a total flirt. We got to the window and the guy asked us if we had seen anyone because someone had tried to rob them through the drive-thru the night before. I totally laughed in the guys face, poor guy. We grabbed the food and Efi was trying to tell me where to drive back to the house but really he was trying to show me a place to make out, hahahaha! The hormones of 20 year olds. Anyways, I’m sure you can imagine we obviously made out that night, of course, he’s the Tongan Garrett! I’m not letting this one slip me by!

Create a memorable Valentines Day with your spouse and create this fun Date Night gift basket to last the whole year only on frenchiewraps.com #YoursandMine #AdI kind of thought I wouldn’t really see him again after that but we kept in touch and he was really the first person that I could really relate everything to. That would be my heart, my faith and my past. He got me, he understood me and he loved me. That’s all I could ask for and for him to be my partner and my spouse now for the last 10 years, I couldn’t imagine my life with anyone else. It really takes love to know how to support and care for you. Anyone can come in and say it, but it really comes down to actions and I’m so grateful for him. He deserves the world and I hope I’m able to provide that to him as well.

Create a memorable Valentines Day with your spouse and create this fun Date Night gift basket to last the whole year only on frenchiewraps.com #YoursandMine #AdFor his gift this year, I really wanted to go back to our first years together and print out some coupons for him to help him remember our first memories together. We used to walk around Temple Square in the snow, drive around all the time, hang out with friends, watch movies, cook, get ice cream, go to movies, go to the dollar store in our poor days. These are some special memories that aren’t so specific that I made up for a printable that you can easily make them yours too. Now, when I say play at the park, I mean actually play on the toys, not make out. We are grown now so we don’t need to go to the park to make out anymore, we can do that at home ;). So with that said, I headed over to Walmart and grabbed the K-Y® YOURS+MINE in the K-Y® DATE NIGHT pack with super discreet packaging. For more great Valentine’s Day ideas, visit www.k-y.com. I know that any husband will enjoy the time and thought put into anything that their wife gets them. It’s not about the money but always about the thought put into something. Take the time in your marriage to communicate and really take the time to love each other.

XOXO, Lindsay
