Crafty Creators Link Party #73

Welcome to Crafty Creators Link Party, where you can share all of your wonderful crafts, DIYs, fashion, recipes, or any other thing that makes your heart happy!

Don’t forget to link up on Happiness is Homemade. Now let’s get to the posts that I shared over the last week.

All my ladies out there who have ever had a gel manicure knows how difficult it is to remove without damaging your nails and how long it takes to soak the polish off. I’ve found the solution to the hour-long soak-off! Check out my tutorial for how to remove your gel nail polish in 5 minutes without damage!

There’s one more thing you can add to the list of things you can do with your Cricut, and that’s make your own nail art! Check out my full tutorial to see how and get a few designs to get you started!

This Week’s Features!

Even with the 4th of July behind us, we still have plenty of summer left to enjoy, and what’s more summer than strawberries?! Natasha over at Serenity You rounded-up 35+ strawberry recipes that we can enjoy. There are quite a few that I want to try, especially the strawberry shortcake truffles!

Now that the red, white, and blue season is past, for a few weeks at least, it’s time for a summertime wreath. This flip flop wreath by Beth of Creatively Beth is perfect to welcome visitors into your home! It’s cute and affordable. Win, win!

Kandice of Thirst Priority shared a recipe for making a copycat Starbucks kiwi starfruit refresher that looks absolutely delicious. I can see myself sitting on the beach watching the sunset with this in hand! Oh man, is that thought making my mouth water and my toes want to dig in the sand!

Peonies are my favorite flower. They’re so colorful, full, and fluffy, and I can’t resist them! So this peony tray centerpiece by Jenna of The Painted Apron is right up my alley! Her hand painted vase is beautiful and makes a great focal point once her tray is removed and the peony tablescape is set!

Over on Master”pieces” of My Life, MaryJo is sharing her summer decor which revolves around three themes: patriotic, gardening, and coastal decor. I love the large lanterns that she filled with seashells and candles and placed on her front porch. You definitely want to check out her front yard, because the curb appeal is fabulous!
