We all need a little pick-me-up from time to time. Whether it's for you or your close ones, affirmations are great for positive and motivational reminders.

Positive affirmations are phrases we can look at, wear or say to help our mindset for the day ahead of us and the challenges we may face.

May saw Mental Health Awareness week. We asked the community to share their positive affirmations through a Cricut project and we were amazed by the beautiful creations we were tagged in on social media. We wanted to share with you some of the wonderful project ideas the community created using their favourite affirmations.

Affirmation makes from the community

Be Kind

'Be kind to yourself,' is a popular self-love affirmation that everyone can get behind. We love the cake topper created by Roisin from SweetEveSigns on Instagram. This pastel and iridescent themed project has a magical and impressive appearance worthy of sitting on top of a cake.

One day

Overthinking about things is something we can all relate to. Cass from Cass_makes1 on Instragram reminds us we need to take things 'one day at a time'.

Cass has used Infusible Ink on the background of her affirmation and applied iron-on vinyl over the top.
