Just-A-Scrappin Design Team Craft Swap

I first want to thank Patti for all the amazing craft items she gave me to create the Just-A-Scrappin design team craft swap. I had so much fun creating with them all. I used many of the products but still have enough left to make some cards. So, here we go!

She gave me a wooden frame, rub ons, sticker embellishments, crystal bling, a variety of ribbon, card stock of 4 different design, a stamp, an embossing folder, a bunch of flowers, a beautiful, beautiful crochet heart, lady bug stickers, ...I hope I remembered everything.

Here is the before picture:
Here is the after with all of them together:
 Then the individual. First the frame.
 I cut the card stock into strips and place them diagonal on the frame. I then cut out a heart shape and used the rub ons to decorate that. I then placed the crystal bling in each of the flowers and added the lady bugs. I then pop dotted the crochet heart. I framed the heart with this beautiful rope ribbon. Last I added the most amazing gold metal ... gosh I don't know what to call them...and added the pearls to the middle. Sigh...just love the materials and how it turned out.

Then the tag:
I used a piece of the card stock I had to make a 3 x 5 tag. Around the edges I used a Martha Stewart punch. Then I embossed a square piece of paper with the adorable embossing folder. To add some accent I used my sparkling gel pen on the part that sticks up. Finally, I put one of the stickers with the kissing fish and the "together" was a rub on. Oh wait, I forgot the, so cute.

Then the card:
I was thinking Chevron here but not sure I'm 100% liking how this turned out. I used the cream card stock Patti gave me and cut it at 5 1/2 x 4 1/2. On the bottom, I went up about an inch and used my crimper. I pulled out my Sizzix Die cuts, put a small hole on each and and threat the ribbon through it and tied the bow and used it with the stamp (so cute...did I already say that?). I got out my stickles and colored in the hearts. On each of the zig zags that I cut out I faux stitched around it to make them pop out. 

Can you believe it! I still have so much of the materials left so I'll get to create even more! 
Thanks so much for stopping by and hugs to Patti!!

Halloween Decorations - Teddy Bear Banner

Hi all! Here's another Halloween Decorations project. I had so much fun putting this one together. The first picture is of the completed project. It's hard to see the details of each Teddy Bear so I've included a close up of each bear. The Teddy Bear Parade Cricut Lite cartridge is a must have...I think I've already said that a few times on I did 4 videos parts 1-4.

Halloween Door Decoration - Beware

I'm needing to make some decorations for Halloween because my storage shed outside leaked last time it rained and damaged some things. Here's a door decoration. If you'd like to see how this was made check out I started out with a sheet of 12x12 medium chipboard. The fist layer is just basic black card stock, then I added a piece of K & Co. decorative Halloween themed paper. I used the Happy Haunting Cricut cartridge for the witches hat, spiders and "Beware". Fun, right? 
Hope you enjoy and have a sun shiny day!

Halloween Card - Boo Ghost

Here's a new Halloween Card that I've made. You can see how this card was created on If you're interested in purchasing this just let me know. 
I've created this one with a white card stock base (5 1/2 x 4 from Recollections), adding a shimmering orange textured layer (5 1/2 x 4 Bazzill card stock), a layer of cute polka dot (Elegant Edges cut at 5") card stock (Cloud9Design). The Ghost is from Create A Critter Cricut cartridge is cut at 3 inches on white glitter paper from Michaels. The black and orange ribbon is from my scrap bin. For the rosette I cut a 6 x 1 inch strip then used an EK success punch on just one edge. The spider is from K & Co. 
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a sun shiny day!

Female Birthday Card

I made this card for my mom for her 75th birthday. I used my new Pretty Pendents Cricut cartridge. I Love It! The base of the card is Recollections, cream colored, 5 1/2 x 4. I used a Bazzill pink textured card stock for the first layer then the pendent. The stamp is from Fiskars. I like the saying...I stamped it on a Spellbinders die cut. 
Hope you enjoy. Have a sun shiny day!
