Gift Giving

A little bit of a change of pace for you all.  As I mentioned in a previous post I participated in a craft show last weekend for the first time.  Let's say it was a learning experience for me!!  This is one of the crafts I made out of a tumble tile that I bought at my local home depot.  I think a box of 8 tiles was $4.99, very inexpensive.  I stamped the tile with brown staz on ink and a stamp from stampin up and voila tie a ribbon around a couple of these and you have homemade coasters for an inexpensive gift giving idea!

Sugar and Spice

I am so thrilled my Walmart has finally received a great selection of Cricut ite Cartridges.  They are priced at $49.99 which I think is reasonable?  So I could not go without buying well let's say a few!!  Of course, even though I do not have little girls I could not resist the Sugar and Spice cartridge. The little lamb which I cut, is so adorable and will definetly be used again in a future layout!


Sweet Treats

Good morning bloggy friends! I wish you all a great day. Today's card is using again one of my fav carts, sweet treats and stickles . Can't seem to get enough of it and you can never have enough birthday cards. I'm lovin these round cards. The cupcake was cut at 4' and it fills the card perfectly with just enough room for a sentiment.

All about Circles!

My theme this week seems to be circles, they are so easy to work with. This is a gift card holder that I made for the upcoming craft show this weekend. They are made to hang on your Christmas tree to resemble a tree ornament. I have chosen to have the gift card to be inserted in the front but certainly there are many ways to reproduce this in your own way. You may choose to use a scallop circle as oppose to a round circle. You may choose to decorate the front and have the card sit on the back. The options are endless. Hope you all have a great night!


P.S. I must apologize for the blurry picture. Not sure what happened there.

SweeIt Treats Card

I have just recently purchased this cart and I am absolutely loving it and we must not forget those wonderfull stamp sets that Robyn from My Pink Stamper has to go along with the cuts! I also used my new fav tool the IRock! If you don't have it and love bling it is a must. Very inexpensive as well. Added the extra sparkle with stickles. Hope you enjoy todays Birthday Cards using the Sweet treats cartridge.



I'm back!!! Life has been busy these last few months. Moved into a new home, got married, went on a honeymoon to Vegas and now preparing for my first ever craft show next weekend. I have been in my craft room until wee hours of the morning some nights, I'm sure you all understand! So I thought in the next coming week I would post some of my projects that I will be selling. Of course I must thank all you ladies out there who inspire me daily. So come back and see me tonight for my first card project!
