coffee cups

I am on a roll with these coffee cups.  How about this santa one?  Toooooo Cute.  I wish they made hot chocolate packets in long skinny packages like they do coffee, that would be perfect.

Halloween goodies

More spider cider cups with left over last years papers.  Might as well use it up.  I figure kids would like to get the cider but the adults I can still put coffee in and a gift card to a coffee place.

Halloween goodies

Had to make some spider cider coffee cups and I found pouches of apple cider that I just fold in half and they do fit inside the cups.  Perfect!  I have been busy making Halloween treats, but in between I have been working on Christmas also.  My room looks like a bomb blew up in there.  Life of a crafter I guess.

Halloween goodies

I did it!  I finally figured out the witches boot.  Seen pictures but didn't know how to put it together.  Sat and played around with it, and it took all day but I did it.  They look cuter in person, they sparkle.  Hope everyone likes them.

Christmas cards

I better start thinking about christmas cards.  So I was just playing around with this idea but I think I want to change the door a bit.  Not sure I am liking the paper I used.

more daisies

Had a few daisies laying around so I created a couple of simple cards with them and my cute little bumble bee sticker from jolees.  I did one with a birthday saying and this one.  Hope you think it is as cute as I do.  Stop back soon.

Male Bday cards

I had a request for male birthday cards.  Hopefully this one is what they are looking for.  I am at a loss when it comes to doing cards for guys.  Most open it and throw it away any how.  lol


Sorry,  I know it has been a while since I have posted but I am having a real problem getting motivated.  My only child has went to college and I am a little lost, to say the least.   So I did spend the day in the craft room and came up with a few things.   I hope you like them.  Thanks for looking, have a great evening.

more daisies

Here are some more daisy cards and the bee.  I had a sheet of these bee stickers that just go perfect with these flowers so I had to use them.  they also go with summer.   Let me know what you think and thank you for sticking with me while I figured out my computer problems.   I hope I didn't lose you all as my followers.  I love showing my creations and hopefully giving everyone some inspiration.   Please stop by again.  Hugs

Scrap cards

Some very simple summertime cards.  These are great to use up some of those scraps that I can't seem to throw away.

finally some new cards

Sorry that it took so long to post some new cards.  I hate that computers do not come easy to me.  And for whatever reason they feel that every few months they need to update and change things.  So just as I get used to doing a program one way they then change it and I am totally lost for a while and this was a big change to the blog program.   I am such a DUH.

Well here are some cute sunny daisies to brighten your day.  They even come complete with bumble bee

Sorry I'm so stupid

I have to apologize for being so computer stupid.  My blogger site updated it's entire layout and it took me forever to figure out how to post something, anything to my site.  I have just now got some writing down.  My pictures kept deleting themselves, I couldn't figure out how to download them to the site.  It hasn't been pretty for me swearing at my computer.  Then I would just give up for the day.  Please Please please bear with me.  I am getting it with my son's help.  I have also been really preoccupied since my son graduated High School this past tuesday and his party is in June.  I will post all the fun party stuff I am doing for his party.  Thanks for bearing with me and stuff is coming I swear.  Have a great day.

Birthday Cards

Needed some quick birthday cards and had some scraps left over from other projects.  I am always trying to use up my scraps.  I save every little scrap of paper figuring that I can use it some how.  (It is an obsession) Thanks for looking, have a great evening.

M&M filled flowers

I have lost my head lately.  I am really preoccupied with all the college planning with my son and I can't keep my thoughts organized.  I thought I had already posted these cute little flower sticks. 

Springtime treats

Here is another use for the round treat cups in the stampin up big catalog.  I used the sizzix flower folds die to make the flowers and I just cut the centers out to insert the cups.  Filled them with Jelly Belly's (my favorites)  I gave these as my thank you gifts at class on Saturday.   Fun.

Mixed bunch flowers

I seen these butterflies made with the mixed bunch flower stamp set and punch from stampin up.  (they are in the mini which you can order from until april 30th)  The second picture is to show you how dimentional these can be if you make more than one and layer them.  Then I used the boho blossom punch for the purple flowers and the bird punch for the leaves.  Hope you like it.  Thanks for stopping by.

Bunny Butts

I have been having a lot of fun making bunny butts.   We had a small class this saturday and everyone loved the bunny butts.  Hope everyone looking likes them just as much.   When you open the card you have the bunny head on the inside.   Too cute!!

OMG!!  I just looked at my followers on the blog and I now have 26!  That is fantastic, I am humbled by how many people like to look at what I have created.  I am honored and hope that you are all enjoying the new posts.  These are madallions made the old school way.  I cut and scored them myself.  But stampin up now has a sizzix die that can do all the work for you.  (125594 Designer rosette)  It would make it a lot easier.  Love them but not sure what I am going to do with them yet.    Thanks again for stopping by.  Enjoy!!

Birthday Cards

See I told you I was busy,  Just didn't get things posted.  Again sorry.  How about this for a really easy birthday card for anyone.  You can also use up your scraps.  The flames are from the bird punch.  It's the wing.

Petal cone die

Using the petal cone die I made this carrot with an adorable little Easter Bunny hanging on to it.  It has a pocket for you to stick a little treat in.  I love this die.  I use it a lot.  Those who know me know I do.  Have a great day, and thanks for looking.  Leave me comments I love to hear from people.  My biggest and most supportive fan is of course Lorri.  Thanks Lorri!


It is almost time to stasart thinking Easter Baskets.  I seen pictures of these on the web and I had been making simular 6 x 6 baskets but never thought to do this.  These baskets can be made in any size divisble by 3.  Easy Peasy.

What a pear

These were pretty easy to put together if you need a quick card.  I water colored the pear with Stampin up ink and an aqua pen.  (which is a water filled pain brush)

Valentine gate fold

Sorry, Sorry, Sorry, I have not posted sooner.  I thought that I had preset the blog to post on certain days but apparently I did something wrong so it is back to the old school of me entering everything myself and posting it that day.  This was a valentine card that I did and when the card is shut the two hearts lock the card closed.  Pretty cool.

I had a few requests for how to make the nugget holders again.  So here it is.  I cut a piece of paper 5 x 3 1/2,  Then on the 3 1/2 inch side score at 1/2, 1, 2 1/2 and 3.  Those score lines make the sides of the nugget holder.  Hope that helps if not let me know and I will try to post some pictures to help.

Apron Tag

This is my gift tag/gift card holder that I have displayed on a wine bottle and I thought it made it look cute.   I want to do some in a birthday and other themes.  They are so cute to me.  See you soon gotta get crafting some more.

Fall in Chocolate

I made a few of these cute gift bags that say forget love I'd rather fall in chocolate.  Then I filled the bag with anything chocolate.  My good friend Debbie let me use her die to cut out the front of the bags during christmas and I loved it so much I had to buy my own.  Thanks Debbie.

Birthday gift set

I was playing with my Candle pizza box and decided to make an entire set of things with the same papers.  I included a hershey nugget holder and gift card holder.

Popcorn treats

I made these up for the Secret Garden.  The gift bags are filled with microwave popcorn and hot cocoa for a drink to go with your popcorn.  The riley tag also doubles as a gift card holder so that you can add a favorite gift card to the movies or whatever is their favorite place is to receive a gift card from. 

Birthday Cards

Here are a few of the birthday card ideas that we will be doing in class on  January 28th at Kelann's house.  The first card has a different type of fold that I think you will like.  Let me know by email  if you will be attending the class or if you would like a kit.   Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great day.
