I’m back from my trip! And while reimmersing myself into reality isn’t nearly as fun as deciding which ride to go on next or which Disney character to meet, I am excited to share my latest designs with all of you. With Father’s Day right around the corner, it’s the perfect time to start thinking of dad and the things he enjoys. So, check out my new set of Father’s Day sports gift tags: perfect for the athletically inclined father (or the father who enjoys watching other talented/athletically inclined people)!
Being a high school coach for over 15 years, my dad has always had a great appreciation for athletics. He taught me how to play tennis, signed my up for t-ball and soccer, coached my swim team, and took up golf the same time I did. A good portion of my memories with my dad involve sports in one way or another, so, when thinking about doing a Father’s Day design, I just knew it should be something along those lines.
I use a Cricut Explore to do my die cut designs, and I absolutely love it! For tips on creating delicate paper cuts like this one, see the FAQ section on my website. Also, be sure to check out the other awesome Father’s Day freebies available on my blog!
And, since this is a Father’s Day post, I think I’ll share a couple random memories I have of my own dad:
- Whenever we went on a family vacation to Disneyland, my parents were very careful with their money. We drove there instead of flying, we always packed a lunch instead of eating in the park, and we were each allowed to pick out 1 souvenir each (priced around $15). On one such trip to Disney, my littlest brother (at the time) begged and begged my dad for a balloon! Every time we saw a balloon salesperson he would cry unconsolably when he would tell him “No,” and move on. You see, paying $10 for a balloon didn’t exactly fit my parent’s viewpoint of frugality. Finally, on the last day of our trip, my dad gave in and bought him a balloon. He was immensely happy. On the first day of the next Disney trip, my dad immediately flagged down the first ballon salesperson we could find and purchased of piece of helium-filled mylar with the kind of enthusiasm I’m sure you’ve never witnessed in a grown man buying a ballon before.
- Since I’ve still got Disney/vacations on the brain, this is another memory that comes to mind. My dad was the king at recording every moment of our vacation! Where most people will take a short Snapchat video of an attraction or show, my dad always recorded the experience in it’s entirety. Since we’ve been to Disneyland many times over the years, this has led to an impressive collection of home video-quality recordings of the live-action Aladdin show as well as jarring footage of myself/my siblings driving the cars at Autopia.
Enjoy these fun Father’s Day sports gift tags! Hopefully there’s one in there that will make your own dad/grandpa/husband smile.
