Happy Sunday!


Hello Crafty friends!! While driving my kids here and there today, I had an idea!
I wondered to myself " would Miss Emma's gift card holder hold wallet size photos?" well I couldnt wait to get home and try it out!
WOOHOOO!!! score! They fit perfectly!!
Since I havent gotten my kids school pics from this year yet, I used their sports pics from football and baseball.
Soooo I found another perfect use for my favorite die cut while giving family and friends pics of my boys!
Thank you again Emma @ My Creative Time
Please go to her website and get this die cut!! You will LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!


Thank you for visiting me!! Please come again!

Happy almost Halloween!

Hello friends!!
I have started making some Halloween projects, when I have time!
I used mostly Emma's (My Creative Time) stamps and dies. I LOVE them!!
I was never a fan of the embossing powders, but I did find in my stash that I bought the embossing ink and powders so of course I had to go get the heat tool. I must say, I LOVE the look!! Please take a look and let me know what you think. I love the comments!! Hope I get to make more and share with all of you!
This one is cut at 3" from Happy Hauntings cricut cartridge
Emma's curly label die, feaux stitching
My Pink Stamper stamps embossed with black powder and heated,I also embossed the hair and shoes of Frank.
Martha Stewart spider web punch

This next one is my favorite!!
Emma's gift card die! I stickled the top trim to stand out.
Mrs. Frank is cut at 3" from Happy Hauntings as well. I used, of course, PKS for her adorable face. Her cheeks I used my 1 of 2 (lol) Copic markers in pink.
Emma's scallop and stitched circle die
Emma's All Around Halloween stamps. I embossed in white and colored the candycorn cupcake with martha Stewart markers. Added a little pop dot and there ya go. I LOVE this!!
I saw these done on a few of the ladies websites. These are post-it note holders. I made some for the boys teachers as a little halloween treat. Embellished with Emma's All Around Halloween stamps, Emma's dies and My Pink Stamper stamp for Happy Halloween.
The next 2 are the post-it holders open. They are the 3x3 notes. I cute chip board at 4" squares. covered them in Halloween paper and adhered it on.

I hope you enjoyed!! come back soon!

My baby's 4th birthday

Good Morning all! Today is my youngest son's 4th birthday! Can't believe how fast time flies. We had his bday party this past weekend at my parents house in the mountains. Little did we know Hurricane Irene would leave us stranded there for a few days. Roads were closed due to MAJOR flooding and couldn't get off the mountain. My thoughts and prayers go to those who lost their homes, their businesses, their belongings. It was a site to see, never thought I'd ever experience that first hand. God bless.
On a lighter note, these are the decorations and favors I made for his party. We decided on a Toy Story theme. I was so impressed with the way these came out.
I did however make the banner a little too big. But it was worth it!!
These favors were so simple. I got the bags from Michaels. They were 12/$3. I cut out the characters from the Toy Story cartridge in the shadow feature and adhered them. I also cut out the words "hand over the toys" but just used the "toys". The contents I also got at Michaels in the $1 bin but they were all 60% off!! Toy Story themed pencils, little notepads and sticker books for 19 cents!! plastic cups with Toy Story for 29 cents! Cant beat that. I've learned a little bargain shopping from Miss Michelle from Scrappin with my Bug! Thanks Michelle!!
My 9 yr old had told me a long time ago he wanted to make the cake. He had a vision of the 'claw'. I think he did a great job and it was delicious! Hmm, imagine if I had a Cricut Cake!! lol He used his Toy Story legos for the decs and I cut out 2 aliens at 3" for effect.
Thanks for visiting!!
