This alphabet would be perfect to create scrapbook pages or party printables for my next Batman party. With the Bat symbol in the background and the iconic yellow and black colors, it's so much fun to use on any printable project for a Batman fan.
I found the most fun Superhero backgrounds today while "window shopping" my favorite clip art sites. I just had to splurge and buy it. Which is probably bad for me since I don't have anything planned to do with these backgrounds. I'm not playing any superhero parties or such. Maybe I'll use them in my son's Batman room when we finally find a house, but for now, what's bad for my bank account is good for you.
I just had to make a Batman alphabet with it. This is one of my favorite things to do with awesome alphabets. You can see how I make them here. Or you can just download this cool Batman alphabet here.

I have been trying to go to the gym since last August and I'm getting no where. It's a little depressing. Until I realized that it's not my fault. (Isn't that what everyone says these days?)
We all get heavier as we get older because there's a lot more information in our heads.
So I'm not fat, I'm just really intelligent and my head couldn't hold any more so it started filling up the rest of me!
That's my story and I'm sticking to it!
Okay, so probably not the real reason, but it's a nice thought and I'm going to hang it beside my scale so I'm not so depressed with my lack of progress each day. Instead, I'll be proud of myself for the extra knowledge that I've gained.
You can too with this free 8x10 inch print from our 30 days of Summer free printable series.
No matter what kind of party you are having, pennant banners are a simple but awesome way to add some extra flair. This patriotic stars printable pennant banner is perfect for a Patriotic party any time of year or for any type of fun.
We've been in South Carolina a week now. And I can tell you one thing I've learned....IT'S HOT! It's a muggy hot. We haven't had to deal with that kind of weather since we left Indiana. I am thinking I may be in trouble since I'm already melting in this wet heat and the locals are telling me this is a mild summer so far.
So I'm super greateful that you guys shared some cool summer treats to help me cool off. If you missed any of them, be sure to check out these features from last week's Dare ot Share linky party.
I've been trying to stay out of the heat by hiding in my hotel room making free printables for you guys. I had to venture out a few times to take my son to the Challenger British Summer Camp this week, but my love of soccer helped me through that.
My friend and co-host Pam from Pam's Party and Practical Tips is full into her summer fun. They went to the Nature Center in her town. I've never been to one before, so I think this would be a fun way to spend a day if you can find one that's not too hot.
I know I'm going to have to find some fun things to do with the kids now that soccer camp is over. They are going stir crazy and I'm losing patience with the soccer juggling that's going on.
I can't wait to see what you've been up to this week!
I am so glad that I sent my kids to Challenger British soccer camp this summer! Their love of the game has increased and their pent up energy has decreased. I love the ability soccer has to save my sanitity. And I love sharing my love of soccer with this versatile soccer printable that's perfect for a sticker or cupcake topper for your next soccer party.
This week my son was able to attend the Challenger Sports British Soccer Camp. It was perfect timing and a great blessing to us as we just rolled into a new town and didn't know anyone.
This soccer camp lasted Monday through Friday from 9 am to 12 pm. There were 3 coaches and about 45 kids ranging in age from 3-15. Each coach took a different age group to work with. My son was the oldest kid at the camp and was in the 10-15 age group.
He spent 5 days at camp and loved every minute of it. He was able to make a lot of new friends (he didn't care that they were younger than him), we were able to connect with the parents and kids from the local travel soccer team, and he even learned a few new dribbling and juking skills.
From a learning standpoint, I'm not sure he learned a whole lot, just because he was so much more experienced than a lot of the kids there. But the Challenger camp was a definite win for us since it kept him busy during the long summer day when there was nothing for him to do.
He would have been sleeping in, playing video games, or picking on his brother during that time, but instead he went to camp and played soccer. So he came home tired and with a little less energy to get in trouble with through the rest of the day. (What more can a mom ask during summer?)
He also came home with a new soccer ball, a t-shirt, a challenger jersey, and a water bottle, as well as a lot of new friends and the invitation to join the local travel soccer team.
If your child is looking for a fun way to keep busy this summer, and embrace his or her love of soccer, I would definitely recommend checking to see if there is a Challenger Sports British Soccer Camp. near by. And since it's the most popular camp in North America, there's a great chance there's one in your neighborhood.
Once you're done signing up for soccer camp, come back and celebrate with this 2 inch circle printable. It is designed to fit xxx, but I admit, I've never had much luck printing templates on to the right spot. If you know how, please let me know the unwritten and secret trick. (Do they make a summer camp for that?)
The sticker can be used for just about any purpose by printing it on to sticker paper and adhearing it to any surface to show your love of soccer. Or you can print it on to cardstock and use it as a cupcake topper. Your options are as endless as your love of soccer!
Right click and save the 2 inch circle printable here, and then let me know what you are going to use it for in the comments below.
I did receive a free week of Soccer Camp in return for this post. But I loved the camp and would have shared anyway. All opinions, thoughts, and printables are my own.

There are certain things I do each day to make some extra play money. During the summer it's hard to remember to get it all done with crazy schedules. Add this bullet journal inspired month box planner printable to your organization and you'll be on your way to your next pair of shoes quick!
I love my planner. I use it for just about everything to keep me organized, especially during the summer when we are in a crazy routine. I have shared a bunch of my free planner printables in the past so hopefully you can stay organized too.
My organizational printable today is a simple boxed table from the bullet planner set up. If you haven't heard of a bullet planner, it's a pretty awesome and easy way to start in getting organized. You can see how it's done here.
This planner printable can be used for just about anything. It has 30 boxes horizontally and 10 boxes vertically. It's great if you want to keep track of anything you need to do every day of the month, like take medicine, or exercise. Just about anything.
I want to help myself remember to do my "money making" tasks each day. I keep forgetting due to the craziness of the moving situation we are in right now and I don't want to miss out on my play money at the end of the month.
There are certain things I do each day to make a little extra money for play. They don't take much time and energy, but I often forget to do them in the daily hustle and grind of life. So I'm adding this planner page to my notebook to help myself remember to do things like Swagbucks, Perk TV, Shopkick, Ebates and the Savings Catcher.
Hopefully this will help you to stay organized this summer too. And while you're at it, don't miss all my other fun summer printables as part of the 30 Days of Summer free printable series.
Keep calm and Just Keep Swimming! What a fun candy bar wrapper for a Finding Nemo or Finding Dory party. Or wouldn't the kids just love it when we go to see the movie? This free printable is quick, easy, and super, super cute.
Despite the fact that we are living RIGHT next door to a movie theater, I haven't had time to go to any movies lately. I do hope I can find time to go see Dory in the next few days. I've heard it's cute and enjoyable even for adults.
With all the stress going on for us this summer, I thought it would be fun to make a candy bar wrapper using Dory and her "keep swimming" mantra for today's addition to the 30 Days of Summer free printable series.
The candy bar wrapper fits a regular 1.5 ounce Hershey candy bar and comes in 3 versions. I decided to add the blank version too. I usually only do that for the Candy Bar Membership club, but you may want to use this cute wrapper for a birthday party or other card alternative.
To use the wrapper, click on the JPG picture file you want to use and save to your computer. Then print it out and wrap around your candy bar. You can follow my directions here or just print, cut, and tape. It's up to you and how much extra work and awesomeness you want to add.

How cute is this Shopkins Cookie printable cake? With it's cute smile and easy directions, you can put this party favor cake together in less time than it would take you to make an actual batch of cookies. And there's way less clean up too!
As you know, I have boys. Rough and tumble boys who love MMA, Minecraft, Soccer, and doing anything they can to stress Mom out. My daughter is the oldest of all the kids and is out of the house. So I don't have little girls at home. So I don't understand the Shopkins craze.
But I know it is a craze. I see it on Pinterest everywhere. I even started a Shopkins Party Board on Pinterest to collect ideas and figure out the little girl shopping treats.
I still have no clue, but for those of you who do, I am working to draw a little bit closer to ease your pain. I have created my first Shopkins printable party favor. I took the crazy cute cookie and turned him? her? into a printable party cake.
If you haven't seen my printable cakes before, I've shared a few with you. They are kind of a pain to make, especially since I'm printer-less and can't check to make sure everything has lined up correctly.
There are 12 pieces of cake in the zip file that comes with this party favor printable. You have to download, save, and unzip the file to be able to print each cake piece. When you do, print them on to heavy card stock and cut out along the outside edges. Score along the inside edges to create a 3D cake piece. Fold, glue, fill, and piece all 12 pieces together for a cute little cookie cake.
The zip file is hosted on Dropbox, so you should be able to click here for the download link and give this cookie a try. It may not taste as good as the real thing, but it sure is super cute and would make a great party favor for your next Shopkins party.

I love this golf ball alphabet for making beautiful golf scrapbook pages! This free alphabet has the numbers 1-9 and the capital letters A-Z with a dimpled golf ball background. How awesome is that for Father's Day scrapbook pages?
I hope you are enjoying a fun day with the dads in your life. I'm far away from my dad but enjoying a quite day with the Dear Hubby and kids. Being new to this area, I'm not sure what we'll do to celebrate, but maybe it will be nice to just enjoy each other's company.
Maybe you'll go do something fun with your dad, like go out to lunch or go golfing. Be sure to take some great pictures and enjoy the day. It's sad to think that Dad won't always be around. I dread that day with everything in me so I'm trying to make and keep the memories that I have.
So I'm scrapbooking all of our fun adventures this year, and all of the little things we get to do together. With that end, I'm sharing a cute little golf ball alphabet to help you scrapbook your memories today.
This alphabet has the capital letters A through Z, and the numbers 1-9. Each letter has a dimpled background to look like a golf ball surface. It's a PNG zip file hosted through dropbox. To use it, simply click on this Golf Ball Alphabet link and download the file that pops up. To use the alphabet, you will need to unzip the file and use each letter individually in your scrapbooking.
I hope you are able to use this alphabet and have a great Father's Day with your dad!
Hello Friends! TGIF!!!
I can't tell you how glad I am that it is finally Friday. We have been traveling across country this week as part of our move to South Carolina. While the government has been great--paying for our meals, putting us in nice hotels, and only allowing us to travel a little each day, this week has lasted FOREVER.
Parts of it were super fun. We got to visit family and some dear friends. We spent a day at the Great Wolf Lodge. And I've been able to listen to a ton of books on my TBR list.One last hoorah from the @greatwolflodge We had a blast!!! Thanks for a fun interlude in our trip. #greatwolflodge #swimming #movingfun #greatamerica #greatamericanmoveA video posted by Kim (@kimskandykreations) on
But I am glad to be here now. We will spend the next few weeks trying to find a house and setteling into our new life. I don't know anything at all about the south, so this will be a new experience for me. Anyone from down here? I'd love to know anything awesome I can do with the boys to keep them entertained while we live in the hotel here.
I have been so unproductive here on the blog this week. I had great plans but after driving all day, I just didn't have the umph to do much of anything. I will do my best to get the free printables up that I missed as part of the 30 days of free printables series, but please bare with me. It may take a few as we try to settle into some type of routine.
I can see that you guys have been super productive though. You had me salivating and wanting to decorate as I looked through the posts from last week's Dare to Share. I will definitely be pinning a bunch of those and adding them to my "To Do" list as soon as I can, but I'm getting super excited about all the Patriotic decorations and treats that you shared.
If you missed them, check out these 3 Patriotic Decorations from last week's Dare to Share party as this week's linky party's features.
I'm not the only one who is starting off on a new foot. My friend and co-host Pam from Pam's Party and Practical Tips is enjoying summer vacation starting. She ended the school year with some great fun and family traditions with her kids.
It's always fun to check out other people's family traditions for me. My kids are getting older now and it's hard to start new ones, but it's fun to try new things and see what the kids love. If you are looking for some great ideas, check out Pam's End of the School Year Tradition and pin it for next year!
I can't wait to see what you've been up to this week!
Don't miss your free Patriotic party printable:
Add a little bit of extra summer fun to your drink today with this Watermelon straw tag. This free printable is a quick and easy way to add some pizzazz to your summer picnic party, watermelon party, or lemonade fun.
We are on the road right now enjoying the "Great American Move Trip". I am a little behind in my posting for the 30 days of summer free printables, but I ended up forgetting my computer charger at one of our stops and have been without a computer for a few days while trying to get a new one.
Probably not a good start to the trip, but hey, we are going to embrace the fun of summer and just go with the flow. As soon as I get a chance (not today, because hey, we are going to the Great Wolf Lodge in Dallas for some summer fun) I'll get my rear in gear and get those past freebies up.
In the meantime, enjoy a summer drink today on me and be sure to add this simple but fun watermelon straw flag. It's a quick and easy way to dress up your summer drinks and add a little bit of fun and whimsy to your watermelon party or backyard picnic.
I'm in Texas this week and enjoying time with my family before heading out to South Carolina. I guess that means summer is in full swing, because it is super hot here. I guess that's good because it is drying up all the water all over town that has caused so much flooding, and it gets everyone in the mood for summer for our 30 days of summer free printable series.
But it's still so darn hot. So I guess it's good that you guys shared so many frozen treats last week. If you missed them, be sure to check out these 3 frozen treats as part of this week's Dare to Share Features.
I can't wait to see what you've been up to this week!
If you're looking for a quick and easy Father's day gift for everyone on your list, add some Chocolate rocks to a bag and top with this Fathers Day printable. You'll have a sweet gift that tells dad he rocks!
I've been really starting to think about Father's Day recently. Maybe it's that I'm down in Texas and working in my parent's candy store. We start looking for fun, easy candy gift ideas for the holiday. Plus, my own hubby already has a ton of "stuff" so we like to give fun treats instead.
So I created a quick and easy candy bag topper for a quick treat. Just add some chocolate rocks to a 3x4 bag and add this candy bag topper to the top. Now you can give to everyone on your list for Father's day.
How fun this Italian Chef recipe card printable is to help get organized in the kitchen. It's available in two sizes and the super cute Italian chef just makes me want to use and enjoy this card while cooking up a storm.
Maybe it's that my hubby spent 2 years in Italy. Maybe it's that my family LOVES their Italian food. I don't know. But I have found that I love to have those cute little Italian chef's in my recipe cards. They are just so sweet.
Today's printable for our 30 days of summer fun consists of a recipe card. You can download it in a 4x6 inch size or a full page recipe card. It just depends upon what kind of recipe book you use. I love to use my half page binders (with all the cute plastic canvas covers) but my kids like the full size and my mom likes the 4x6 inch size.
For my own sanity, I just make them suitable for all sizes. You can download and save them to your computer and then just use your computer's print program to select the size that you want to print. That's the easy part. Getting all your recipes written down and organized...now that may be a bit harder.
4x6 Recipe Card
A Fathers Love printable quote is perfect for a quick Father's day gift to show dad how much he means to you and how much you appreciate him. Print it out and frame in a 4x6 inch frame to help dad all those times you aren't the "perfect" child.
Father's day is just a few weeks away and I'm feeling particularly nostalgic about it today. I am traveling cross country to my new home in South Carolina and was able to stop in Texas this week to spend it with my parents.
I know I am so blessed to be able to see them as often as I have over the past few years, and so am feeling the strain as I travel far away and am not sure when I'll see them again. Especially as I look at their health problems and worry.
I am so blessed to have the most amazing parents who truly have been a guiding light to me in everything I do.
Today's free printable from our 30 days of summer is a quote that's perfect for a Father's day gift. It reads "A Father is neither an anchor to hold us back nor a sail to take us there but a guiding light whose love shows us the way."
Remember to watch for your favorite book to come out with this book planner printable page. It's great for helping to remind you what book you are on after waiting that everlasting year for the next book to come out in your favorite series.
I am a huge book lover. Whenever I have a spare moment, I have my nose in a book.... and, even sometimes when I don't.
But one of my biggest pet peeves is when I finish a book, but then have to wait an entire year for the next book in the series to come out. I mean, come on! If you aren't going to write another book for FOREVER, then don't leave us with cliff hangers when we are dying to know what's going to happen.
My problem is, that I forget what series I'm reading a year later and forget to look for the next book to come out. So if it's not considered a "best seller" and there's not a lot of hype, I forget to go and find the book.
So I created a planner printable for myself to help me remember what book series I'm reading, and what book I'm on. And today, I'm sharing that planner printable with you as part of the 30 days of summer free printables series. (Go here to check out all the printables that we have so far.)
The planner page comes in two sizes. One that fits a full size sheet of paper and one that has two planner pages per sheet. So whatever type of planner you have, you should be able to add this planner page to it.
The page has a spot for the series title, the author, and a place to check up to five books off your reading list. If your series has more than five books in it, just use the next line down to keep checking. (And then let me know what series it is so I can add it to my TBR list!)
It's a bittersweet day here in the Kreations household. Tomorrow morning we leave Colorado and head off to our new adventure. I'm not sure if we'll ever be back or not, due to the circular nature of our job, but I'm both excited and sad to leave here.
One of the good things is that I get to go home and spend a week with my family before we head off. We won't be this close to them in a while, so I don't know if it will be the last journey for a while or not. So I hope to make it a good one.
And since it will be so close to Father's Day, I need to get my rear in gear and get my Father's day gift made for my wonderful daddy.
If you are still looking for some gift ideas, here are three from last week's Dare to Share Saturday blog linky party. In case you missed them, check them out.
My friend and co-host Pam from Pam's Party and Practical Tips is also ready for some summer and some summer love---with Strawberries. This week shared some great Strawberry recipes that you just have to go check out. Strawberries are one of my favorite fruits of all time, so I can't wait to get to my Mom's house so I have a kitchen to try some of these.
I can't wait to see what you've been up to this week!
Celebrate National Donut Day or any day of the week with yummy donuts and this free sticker printable. You can tell all of your loves "Donut You Know I Love You?" in a sweet and yummy way!Today is National Donut Day!
To celebrate I'm sharing a 2 inch sticker printable as part of our 30 days of summer series. The sticker is designed to fit the Avery 2 inch Print to the Edge Stickers. I've never had much luck using the stickers. I'm not sure why, but I can never get all of them to line up correctly.
Just in case you have better luck than me, I did use the template to design these. If you're like me, then I just use either the Avery Full Sheet Sticker Paper and a 2 inch hole punch, or the hole punch and my Xyron (yes, that's one of my favorite crafting tools of all time.)
Either way, feel free to right click and save the label printable to your computer. Then print them out and surprise your kids with some yummy donuts today and a sweet I Love You!
Then be sure to come back and check out all of our 30 days of Summer free printables for more summer fun!
