38.  Felt & Ribbon Bookmark ~ This felt and ribbon bookmark is absolutely adorable!  It’s also easy to make with only minimal supplies needed.  You could make one to coordinate/pair with a book and give it as a gift, party favors, or for a summer reading program/book club!

124.  Ruffled Clutch Tutorial ~ This little lovely would be the perfect addition to your summer wardrobe!  Isn’t the ruffle fantastic!  It gives the clutch the perfect amount of pizzazz.  You don’t have to be a highly skilled seamstress to make this clutch either, only intermediate beginner skills are needed.

234.  Travel Photography Tips ~ When we travel we want tangible memories of our amazing experiences when we return home.  We also want to capture the true beauty of the things we see.  Follow some of these simple tips such as capturing the details, landscapes and close-ups for the best vacation pictures.

301.  Faux Capiz Shell Frame ~ Isn’t this faux capiz shell frame gorgeous?!  You can make your own much simpler than you think.  If you can glue, use a paper punch and sew a straight stitch you can make this beauty.  Chalk pastels were used on the shells to give it the capiz shell effect and a mirror silver spray paint for shine.

334.  Rainbow Fish Inspired Party  ~ This darling rainbow fish party is full of swimmingly adorable ideas for your own summer pool and ocean themed parties.  It was inspired by the “Rainbow Fish” book.  There are some amazing food, dessert and game ideas to get your party planning started.

449.  Patriotic Mini Star Cakes  ~ Oh my stars and rumbling tummy!  These patriotic mini star cakes look absolutely scrumptious.  One box of white cake mix batter is separated and colored red and blue.  Each layer is filled with fresh strawberries and blueberries and topped with homemade strawberry sauce.

519. Crochet Summer Baby Sandal Pattern ~ These summer baby sandals are absolutely darling!  They are perfect for a boy or girl just change the color of yarn.  If you don’t already know how to crochet you’re going to want to learn now!

586.  Ring Holder ~ Look at this great way to organize your rings and display them as beautiful art!  When you see how easy the  tutorial is you will definitely want to make your own.  Tightly rolled fabric is what holds the rings in the dividers.

667.  Piped Pocket Tutorial ~ Could this skirt be any cuter?  Seriously!  It’s shaped like a 1950’s skirt with a tight waist and lots of fullness.  For added flair there’s piping along the waistband and pocket.

688.  The Drop Cloth Chair Makeover ~ This drop cloth chair makeover is fantastic!  No need to go to a fabric store for supplies.  You can all the necessary supplies at your local hardware store.  Yep, the drop cloth is from Home Depot for only $10.  The great thing about using a drop cloth is that it’s super durable.
