Hump Daaay

Good morning!  I've got more candy bags to show you today!  These are for that famous day of the week that everyone seems to need some help getting over...Hump Daaay!  I saw these little stamps on the Jaded Blossoms website and just had to have them.
I used the same little kit as I did the other day just changed out the stamp on the front.  I think it works out just fine and I'm sure they recipient (not sure who yet) will love them too!  I actually just ordered some more candy stamps for Christmas that I hope they get out to me first thing this week so I still have time to use them...we shall see!

Today I'll be making a birthday card for a special friend so I'll see you back here soon with something other than candy bags!

Thank Whoooo...

Hello!   I'm back once again to share a little project I made yesterday. You may or may not know that I am an Origami Owl Designer. We have a great hostess program but sometimes I like to give my hosts an extra little something so while making some other fun projects (I'll show you those soon) I made these fun treat thank yous for my December hosts.


I started with the SU! Simply Created kit.  It came with the die cut tags, the red stripe sticker, the bag, and the baker's twine that closes the bag.  I just added a sentiment and owl from a The Stamps of Life kit.  In the bag is just a few Hershey's Kisses.   I hope they will like them!

Thanks for stopping by!  I'm headed into my craft room today so I hope to have more to share soon!

Winter Bright

Thank you so much to everyone that stopped by my blog yesterday for the Card Swap Hop!  I love crafting...just haven't had much time to do it recently so the card swap was perfect!

Today I want to share with you some gift card holders that I made.  I know...there are tons of tutorials for gift card holders, right?  Well, first, this isn't a tutorial and second...it is really easy to replicate!  Check them out...


These were quickly and easily made with SU! Envelope Board.  They are 3"x4" because I wanted the little paper 'thingie' that the gift cards come on to go in the envelope too as it has a place to write the value of the card on it.  I just followed the directions on the board starting with a 6x6 piece of paper and these are the cute holders that I came up with.  The papers and the sticker elements all came from the, can you guess from yesterday?, Winter Bright Simply Scrappin' kit that I used on my step-up swap cards.  I have three nieces and one nephew so for my ease I made three pink and one blue.  Honestly, I was SO pleased with myself when they were done!

Are you making any special projects for gifts or decoration this year?  I'd love to see so feel free to link me up in the comments!

A Card Swap Hop!!

Good morning!

I'm here today with a bit of fun!
A few weeks ago, seven of us decided we would do a Christmas/Winter card swap.
It was so much fun to see the different cards come in, that we decided to take it one step
further, and do a blog hop with our swap cards!

This is just for fun...no prizes, but we hope that you are inspired by something
that you see today!

Here is my swap card:


For my card I used the snowman2build set from The Stamps of Life.  It was one of the sets for Die Hard members and I just love that it comes with several additional dies to make your snowman super fun!  For the base of the card I used Basic Step-Ups die also from The Stamps of Life...this die makes it SO easy to make step up cards and also has tons of extra pieces including all the layering pieces, again love that it makes card making so fun.  For the paper and die cut snowflakes I used an old Stampin' Up! Simply Scrappin' kit called Winter Bright...it's perfect, huh?  I just thought this card would be a fun one to send to a friend this winter to let them know they are being thought of.  :)

Now, you can hop along with us, and see what the other folks created!



I do have a couple of more projects I'll be sharing over the next week so I hope you'll subscribe to my blog or come back to check it out!  Just a hint...I simple gift card holder is up next on the blog...tomorrow!

Brighter Days

I was back in my croffice (craft room+ office = Croffice!) using an old SU! set called Brighter Days for the last couple of days.  This set has reminded me that I haven't been coloring much recently because I stink at it again!  LOL!  It's okay, though, I'll be practicing more!  From Millan.Net

I put some illuminate smooch on the wings of this sweet angel as well as on the bees on the inside panel of the card.  I thought it would be fun to decorate up the inside too...and it was!
I made this card specifically for my husband's grandma...I think she will enjoy just getting something in the mail.  From Millan.Net Well, there you have it...another day, another card. I'm hoping to get back in my Croffice today or tomorrow so hopefully I'll be back soon!

Sweet Baby

Good morning!  This posting thing may become a habit again...could be fun!  I made another baby card as we had one more gift from my husband and I and a couple of the great-grandparents for my son and his wife.  They did not have a crib yet and we just couldn't let the baby come home without out a crib sooooo...we all pitched in and got them one!

 So, above is the card that I made for this gift.  I love the paper colors and the little clothespins...so cute!  Again, both boy and girl colors. 
 So, the crib came un-assembled of course and the box was huge and quite heavy...120 lbs or so but Todd managed to get it in the bed of the truck then Scott helped him carry it in.  It isn't together yet but when it is together it should look something like the photo below.  We just have to find them a mattress and a changing pad.  I love that there is storage...three drawers on the side and two below.  I understand from the reviews on Amazon that they aren't huge drawers but they are better than nothing!

So there you have it.  I'm working on another card but I'm not loving my coloring right now (it is a bit rusty after not having colored much for a year and a half) so we shall see if I go with it or not.

Right now, I'm off to exercise and watch last nights Dancing With The Stars!  Have a wonderful day! From Millan.Net
