Payton's Helicopter Card

This was a super fun boys card. As you can tell the  card goes to Payton. My kids always think it's so cool to see the plane's pulling the banners. So that is were the inspiration for the card came from. The cool part about being a little boy is that they know no limits. So not only can your helicopter carry a banner with your name on it, but it can also take you to outer space.
Here are the products I used to make this card.
Papertrey Ink - White Card Stock
Joann's - Bazzill - Huckleberry Pie and Tropical Breeze Card Stock and glossy accents
Stamp-in Up - Sahara Sand
Custom Crops - Bo Bunny - Blast Off Paper Pad
Action Wobble
Boys Will Be Boys Cricut Cartridge
(helicopter cut at 2.5 inches and banner is cut at .50 inches and the I cut a dove tail on the end)
I added glossy accents to the white on the helicopter to make it look like glass and then put the helicopter on an action wobble. I know with my boys, everything has to move. I hope you all like this boy card and find some inspiration in it for a card of your own.
Thanks for visiting and happy crafting.

Sympathy Card using K. Andrew Designs Sympathetic Sayings

I cut a 12 X 12 piece of paper into 6 X 12. Then scored it in half making a 6 X 6 card base out of bazzill card stock from Joann's. Then covered it with Memory Box Pixie Paper from Two Peas in a Bucket. The bottom layer was 6 X 6 and the top  layer was 5.5 X 5.5 inches. They were both inked with Tim Holtz Tattered Rose distress ink from Joann's. One inch down from the top and centered; I punched 2 holes and ran my ribbon through. I placed 3 clay roses on top of the center of the bow. I cut an oval from the Sugar and Spice cricut cartridge. Cut on real dial size 3 X 4 inches. I inked the edges of it with Tattered Rose distress ink as well. Then I used the Jenni Bowlin #6 Seed Packet ink for the sentiment and the sentiments are from K. Andrew Designs Sympathetic Sayings.

Corsages with handmade clay roses

I used to make these roses as a kid out of play dough and then when I'd play with my kids, they'd make their play dough designs and I'd make more roses. Well, I bought some molds and I tried and tried and no matter what I did nothing seemed to work. I couldn't get them out of the mold, even after I baked them. So I gave up on those and decided to make the ones I use to make. I hope that you like them.

Tim Holtz Distress Ink Blending Foam Storage

This video is my idea of how to store some of my Tim Holtz products. I hope that you find it useful and are able to do something similar for your products. Remember Tim Holtz distress inks, blending tools and the blending foam is still on sale today at Joanns. His inks are only $2.99. I think that's an awesome price.


Thanks for visiting me today and happy crafting.

PS
If you don't keep the plastic that your cricut cartridges, cuttlebug folders, or spellbinders come in, I'd appreciate it if you all could mail me some. I'm working on something and need some of that heavy plastic. Thank you to all who can help.

Book Character Puppets

When I was reading a story to the kids at my daughters school, I made these little popsicle stick puppets to go along with the story. They were super easy to do and the kids loved to use them to help me make the book come to life.


I cut the pieces from the zooballoo cricut cartridge and the faces are from peachy keen stamps. I wanted to make sure that my alligator looked friendly. Then I got the popsicle sticks from Wal-Mart. This was a real easy project and it really helped keep the kids attention. You could even have the kids make them after you're done reading the story and use them for bookmarks for their books at home. I hope this gives you all some ideas for things you can do with your kids too.
Thanks for visiting and happy crafting.

Flower Hat Pin

I had several people ask to see my hat with my flower hat pin on it. So I had my daughter take a couple pictures. Please keep in mind, I'm not the most photogenic person in the world. I hope that you like what you see.

Flower Hat Pin

After finding the hats that fit me in the men's department, I really knew I needed to do something to make them look more feminine. So I've been buying different flowers and making all kinds of designs to jazz up my hats. One - it adds some pretty color to my hats and two - I think my kids are embarrassed by them. LOL My daughter is a major wall flower (a beautiful wall flower) and does not ever want any attention brought to her. So we are like complete opposites. Why go through life unnoticed? So it drives her crazy when I make these big flowers and things to go on my hats. OMG, someone may spot her standing next to the lady with the flower on her fedora. So here is another video of a new design for my hat. I tried it on my fedora and it looks fine. But if I want to move it to a different kind of hat, I'd definitely need to make the pin shorter.

Fun Elephant Card

Hi guys, this is another one of the cards I made before I started blogging and I thought I'd make this a quick post and share it with you.
I'll give you as much as I can remember of what I used to put this A2 size card together. I know that the background paper is Colorbok. The pink ribbon is from Wal-Mart. The boarder is the loopy punch and the word friend is from Stamp-in Up.
Every time I add one of my pre-blogging cards I'm amazed at how goofy I was to actually think that I'd remember the products I used. I can't even remember what I had for dinner yesterday. LOL
We had company come in last night and they will be here for the weekend. So I wanted to try to get one last post in before the craziness of the day begins. I'm trying to get a few things done so that I can make some cricut goodies to help my daughter in law decorate her door where she works. So you never know, I might still have a post or two over the weekend.
Thanks for visiting me today and happy crafting.

Awesome Craft Tool Caddy

Hi everyone. I know that I've told you that a friend of mine made me an awesome Lazy Susan.  I just hadn't showed you how I used it to organize all my craft supplies. This is really awesome for everyone but especially those of us who have a small craft space. It only takes up 18 inches and provides a ton of storage space.
I hope you are as impressed with my friends awesome handiwork as I am. We came up with the idea of altering round tubes to go in place of my buckets for any he makes in the future. If you think he did a great job, let me know. I'm trying to encourage him to make more of them for a craft fair this fall. I chose to keep mine natural because it matches my tables better. But he would probably paint, stain or varnish any other ones. 
Now that you've seen my cool tool caddy. Let me tell you a little about the guy who made it. He's been my friend for over 12 years. He lost his right hand in an accident and yet, there isn't anything or any tool that he can't operate. He's the most handy capable person I know. Let me know what you think, is this something you'd purchase at a craft fair and for how much? I'd appreciate your opinion.
Thanks for visiting me today and happy crafting.

K. Andrew Design Stamps - Scripture Sayings

This was my first time using K. Andrew Design Stamps and they worked awesome. I made two 6 X 6 cards, both very similiar designs with two different scriptures. The stamps worked amazing and I love how they stamp.
 I used Colorbok Rosewood Paper Pack from Wal-Mart.
Two different Stamp-In Up stamps. (Triple Layer Doily Punches and X-lrg label punch)
Papertrey Ink Ribbons
Doily Punch was cut from the Wrap It Up Cricut Cartridges at 5 inches.
I really enjoyed making these cards and am so excited about getting more of Kristals stamps and using them to send cards to the soldiers that I support and all the other people I love to send my cards to. Please take a minute or two and go check out all of Kristal's wonderful stamps.
I think you'll love them as much as I do. Here are pictures of the two cards that I made. I hope you like them.

My First Stick Pins

Hi Everyone, I wanted to show you my first attempts at making stick pins and exactly how I made them. Because they are so fine and some of the beads so small, it wasn't possible to get a good picture of them. So I'm hoping ya'll will be happy with the video I made. I am very new to this, so if you see anything I could have done better or should have done different, please leave me a comment and let me know. I have been going crazy looking for plain 3 inch straight pins, so if anyone knows where I can find them. I would really appreciate you sharing that information with me as well. I've seen the one with pearls or what looks like little diamonds from the wedding section for corsages, but I just want a plain regular long straight pin. Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

Haul Video 1 and 2

Hi everyone. I recorded a haul video and no matter how many times I tried, I could not get it under 10 minutes. So I had to resort to making 2 separate videos. I can't get a special thing to go over 10 minutes on youtube until I've done at least 100 videos and I'm a long way off. So I hope that you don't mind watching this is two separate installment. I did make a mistake and say this was the first time I purchased from My Creative Time. What I meant to say that this is the first die that I've purchased from My Creative Time.
I do need to tell you that today has been a very rough day for me and I have been extremely sick. So I'm a little emotional during these videos. I know you're probably wondering, how in the world does someone get emotional during a haul video. Well when you are in excruciating pain, you feel like everyone just kicked you puppy. LOL So I'm apologizing in advance.

I hope you can forgive me for being upset and so emotional and will stop back to visit me again anyways.
Thanks for visiting me today and happy crafting.
