Photo booths are a must have at a party with a lot of guests. Not only is it time that they’re spending with you, it’s time that you don’t have to spend thinking of what to occupy them with. Photo booth props are easily made with your Cricut Maker or your Cricut Explore.New Years Photo Booth DIY with Cricut


Remember that you don’t have to cut everyone of these shapes if you don’t want. All you have to do is click on the eyeball that is next to the shape and it’ll disapear, or just delete it. I don’t want you paying for a shape that you’ll never use. Or buy the Cricut Access program and get over 30,000 shapes available to you.New Years Photo Booth DIY with CricutI’ve used the subscription services when I had my Silhouette and now that I use Cricut. I’ve gotten a better deal out of Cricut. I’ve been able to find a lot of shapes that I’ve been able to manipulate and give me the look that I want. It’s a great addition and only $10 a month for something that you’d get a lot of use out of.New Years Photo Booth DIY with CricutI used the standard grip mat and chose the intricate cut setting for Cricut cardstock. If I am using any cardstock thicker than the 80 lb. weight, I’ll usually just hit go again and it’ll give me 4 swipes of the blade. This will insure that you don’t have any tears when lifting your paper from the mat. For the glitter cardstock, do the intricate cut but have it pass through 4 times. When choosing intricate cut it’ll pass through twice for each press of the go button.New Years Photo Booth DIY with CricutOnce all your shapes are cut, just assemble them according to the image. I always like to separate my image cuts into piles so that I don’t get any pieces missed. My favorite adhesive for cardstock is this one by Tombow. It dries quick and it’s also great for 3-D projects.New Years Photo Booth DIY with CricutI let all the New Years photo booth props dry overnight and then I adhere the skewer to the back. I just use hot glue for this part because it’s the best and most durable for photo booth props. Once all your sticks are adhered you’re ready to go.New Years Photo Booth DIY with CricutI like to have these in a jar just to the side of the booth. In the past I’ve used lots of different photo backdrops but my favorite thing to use is this sequin fabric. It pops and is perfect for ringing in the New Year.

Now for the giveaway! Good luck!

Marking off my New Years Resolutions by keeping up with my Calendar

Call me crazy but that is so me! My mom tells me all the time – Poodle, you need to make a list everyday of what needs to be accomplished and it will make your life so much easier. I know it would but I don’t and I continue to run around with my head cut off. Yes, my mom calls me Poodle cause I shake my fanny when I walk. TMI. Now, that’s why I headed off to Walmart to find out what their lowest priced unlimited plans were and I’ll tell you why…

Walmart DisplayKeeping a New Years Resolution with Walmarts Unlimited Talk, Text and 3G Mobile Plan by T-Mobile. #HAppyNewMeMy parents were so kind and got the kids a new computer for Christmas because they’re going to need one for homework assignments and our old MacBook is hanging by its last thread. I knew I needed to have an electronic device that is going to sync with the calendar since it’s a Windows operating system but I didn’t want to be paying an arm and a leg for its service. Walmart offers the lowest price unlimited plans for $34.88 and you get 5GB of data of T-Mobiles 3G Network. I grabbed their Samsung Galaxy Exhibit for $79.88 and a starter kit for $25. They’ve got other options but I was going for calendar quality here and that was it since I also have an iPhone.

Keeping a New Years Resolution with Walmarts Unlimited Talk, Text and 3G Mobile Plan by T-Mobile. #HAppyNewMeMy new years resolution is to be more organized this year and to be able to get my act together to share with you guys a lot more DIY projects. See that red wall in the back, it’s going to be BLACK and the frames behind the desk wall are getting a makeover! Those DIY projects take a ton of planning and so I need this in my life to be able to be organized and be in the know! I meant be in the know because I need to know all what is going on around me and I’ve been putting other things in front of my priorities and that needs to also change.

What’s your New Years Resolutions? I’d love to hear them, share with me down below!

XO, Lindsay
