Layout Share!

Happy Monday my crafty friends!  As promised I have a video for you today of a couple of layouts that I have completed.  I have been so inspired by Jana Eubanks sketches that I just can't seem to get enough of them.  It's keeping the juices flowing which means I am getting some crafting done!!

I'm off to puppy school tonight so I hope you all enjoy the rest of your day and evening.

Oh My Word!

Just when you think you might get ahead something get's in the way!  Without giving you all a sop story I ended up with a sinus infection, my poor 3.5 month old puppy Maya is on her second round of antibiotics because of a urinary tract infection and my 1 year old puppy Nala ended up on antibiotics as well because of vomiting.  Gosh does it ever end!

I have to be honest I have been posting on YT more frequently as it is sometimes just easier to show and tell rather than trying to get a blog post up.  My bad!  Having said that over the next couple of days I will be posting some of my videos.  A few hauls, a few layouts and a few cards!  Hope you will pop by!

I am also very excited about a new purchase that I have made, although it is not in my hands yet I hope to have it at the end of the week.  I bought a used Silhouette SD!!!  I could not justify spending the money for the Cameo, not yet anyway!  I will be selling my E2 so if any of you know someone from Canada that's looking for one let me know.  It's only been used a couple of times.  I have the Imagine and have been making much more use out of it instead.

So will see you back here tomorrow with a video!

Gift Card Holder

Happy Monday Crafters!  I hope you all had a fabulous weekend!

Today I have a few gift card holders that I made for Christmas gifts using the My Creative Time gift card holder die, did I mention that I "heart" it!!  The possibilities are endless and perfect for any occasions.  I had so much fun with each and every one of them!

I hope you all enjoy the rest of your day and will see you back here tomorrow.

Peace On Earth

Happy hump day!  The weekend is right around the corner!  The card I made is actually to be handed out next Christmas! Never too late to start right!  I love it.  Very simple but love the look.  I cannot take credit for the design as I did see it in a magazine.  I used my Imagine to print and cut out all the butterflies and the sentiment is from Mr. Cricut Crazy.  A ribbon, inked all the butterflies and some liquid pearls and card is complete!  I used non traditional Christmas colors which I also love.

Have a great crafty day!

Birthday Card!

I'm back with a birthday card and video for you.  Some of you may have already seen this on my YT channel  but this card was made for my nephew for his birthday.  I used the Beep Beep Cricut Lite cartridge.  Enjoy!

Happy Crafting!

Happy New Year!

Wow, it's been over a month since I last posted.  Time sure flies.  I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all!  I have to tell you although I was a good girl all year Santa didn't really bring me any goodies to play with:(  Best that I buy what I want anyway.  I hope Santa was good to all of you.

Quick little update since my last post.  I have added to my family once again! I have an 11 week old puppy running around the house!  She is a yellow lab and was the best decision I made to give Nala (my chocolate lab who turns 1 this week) a friend to play with!  She is keeping me hopping!  Unfortunately, I put my 14 year old lab/shep down on the 30th of December.  I am missing her like crazy and it was one of the biggest decisions I have ever had to make but in the end it was best for her.  She was deteriorating and before things got worse I wanted to leave her with some dignity.  So we are all trying to adjust with her loss.

She brought me many years of happiness and I am thankful that she came into my life.

This is my new bundle of destruction.  I call her my little firecracker!  She has got some personality is which I am not use to so!

Although Christmas has come and gone I do have a few projects that I want to share with you and the first being an altered vintage Christmas box that I made for a swap over on the cricut message boards.

This was the first time that I alter a box and I am very please with the way it turned out.  I crackled the paint, distressed the edges, fussy cut all the paper which was from stampin up added some Tim Holts embellishments, felt to the bottom of the inside of the box and voila!  My very first altered box!

Hope you enjoyed my project today, sure hoping to get back into the swing of things.  It's been a while since I was crafty!
