Cardstock: from my stash and bazzill
Patterned Paper: Doodlebug
Candy border: Doodlebug
Cartridge: Mini-Monograms

Birthday Goodie Bag

Hello everyone,   I thought I would share with you today a little goodie bag I made for one of our soccer players.  The bag is actually done by hand, the only thing I used my cricut for was the scallop circle and the pink circle.  Enjoy!

The adhesive wasn't sticking with the black paper I didn't notice it until it was too late.  Just pretend that the black paper is flush against the pink paper. 

All the paper is from my stash
Cuttlebug Birthday folder
I don't remember the cartridge used
white gel pen
Stampin Up Stamps and ink
Heat embossed with Stampendous! Marcasite embossing powder.

Accordian Album

Good day everyone!
I just wanted to share with you a fun project I made.  It's a pocket size accordian album.  Perfect for teens and grandma's.  This one is made for a teenage girl to put fun pics of her and her friends.  I think it would be a fun gift for BFF's to give to each other too!.  It is double sided, so you end up with 14 pages or 7 2page layouts. 
I had fun making it and I hope you enjoy!

Pretty much everything I used for this was from a company that no longer exists.  But I wanted to share it with you anyway, maybe it could give you some ideas for something you are working on.
Thanks for stopping by!

Doctor Who? card

I have to say I love this card I made for my nephew.  It is hard making cards for boys/men especially teenagers.  When I was trying to figure out what to do for Connor, I remembered that he is really into the TV show Doctor Who?  We watch it too so that's what made this card even funner to make.  I did it all by myself.  I think it turned out pretty good, and I hope he likes it. 

All I used for this was paper out of my stash, a ruler, pencil, navy marker and white gel pen.  Ink from Stampin Up for the distressing and a square punch. Oh, and a pair of scissors.

Thanks for stopping by!

Inking it up Crazy--Home Decor

Over at Inking it up Crazy Kassidy has a linking up party going on.  You just need to make something that is home decor.  She would like it to be out of vinyl if possible.  I don't have any, so I thought I would share my Birthday Calender creation!

I have just recently made a ton of these for a booth.  Check out my blog post BIRTHDAY CALENDERS to see all of the different styles I have made this in.  Enjoy! (I am showing you mine, so you can see the birthdays written in)

Thanks for stopping by!

MPS-Pinkalicious Blog Hop Challenge

Whew, I just got through the Pinkalicious Blog Hop and it's late but I wanted to share my project with you. 

The Challenge:  Make a 3D object having to do with school.  I wish I had Robyn's stamps to go with mine but maybe next time.  Here is what I came up with.

Carts: Plantin schoolbook & locker talk
paper is from my stash
ribbon is from my stash
fiskars border punch
black marker for doodling
Stampin Up ink

I had a lot of fun and hope you like it.  Thanks for stopping by!

Drama Queen Birthday Card

Hey fellow crafters,  I wanted to share with you this card I just finished making for my niece.  She just had her birthday and so the card will be a little late.  That's okay isn't it, it's the thought that counts right?   Anyway, she is turning 10 and is a major drama queen!  She really loves theatre and acting. 

I am entering it into a challenge over at crafty sprouts with Erika Valdez. She has a challenge to make a shaped card. I think this is only my 3rd try at a shaped card. I love this cut from Once upon a princess and had to try it.  I thought it turned out really cute, and I hope my niece likes it. 

Most of the paper is from my stash.  I used stickles on the crown and popped it up.  It really was a simple card to make, not much to it.

Thanks for stopping by, and I will see you next time!

Tanner (Little Man)

Here is another layout I did with my son's adorable pictures.  In this one he is such a cute little man.  I realized after I had completed the layout that I should have put "Little Man" for the title, oh well, I think it is still cute.

Paper is DCWV and Breezy Design

I have missed blogging this last couple of months, all of the fun blog hops, challenges and the great inspiration I get from you fellow bloggers, but I wanted to share with you what has been taking up all of my time.

I have been getting ready for a booth at our local Peach Days celebration. I did really well with my booth, I sold quite a bit of my creations and have orders for many more. 
Here is my main source of income.  They are all different in their own way, and I can make them in many different colors to match your home decor.  They are my take on a Birthday Calender. 

I hope you enjoy them and if you have any questions leave a comment or email me, at  (click on a picture to few larger)
