I’m super excited to show all of you the charms and spell book I made for a charm swap over at Life on the Scrapbeach! Right from the start I knew I wanted to do a spell book as the display for my charms and I wanted the spell book to look really old. It was Tim Holtz distressing ink and a paper lunch bag to the rescue!
Hi everyone. My charms from the Vintage Lady swap arrive so I made a video of them to share with you. Thanks ladies for such a wonderful swap!
I was so excited about my Papertrey Inc. haul that I had to make a quick card using one of their stamp and die sets. This card was easy to make. I love these stamps! Enjoy!
I finally placed my first Papertrey Inc. order. I’ve been wanting to try their stamps and dies for a long time. Here is a video of what I received along with some other crafty items I’ve bought recently (Hobby Lobby, eBay, JoAnns). Have a Totally Twisted day !
Ten years ago today I married the love of my life! It’s been the best 10 years of my life and I couldn’t imagine my life without him. He’s been there through the good and the bad and has backed me up on my decisions. He is my rock! Happy anniversary hubby. I love you!

Well after stocking the charm swap sites and watching numerous charm swap videos on YT, I finally jumped in and joined a swap. I decided to join the Vintage Lady swivel clasp swap over on Life on the Scrap Beach. The requirement was to create 4 charms. Each swivel charm was to have have at least 9 dangles and 3 metal charms. I had so much fun creating my charms that I went overboard and have 13 dangles. We also had to make a tag for our charms. Here are the charms that I made. I cannot wait to receive my swap in the mail. Guess it is time to stock the mailman…lol
This week was my hubby’s birthday. I have such a hard time with masculine cards. I love to create cute crafty projects and glitz them up. Cannot do that with a masculine card. I just bough some Bo Bunny paper so I was excited to give the paper line a try. I used the Welcome Home Collection. These papers worked well in my masculine card. I kept the lines clean and simple and I resisted the temptation to glitz it up. I inked up all the edges with Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Distresser ink. I cannot say enough how much inking the edges makes to a project look better. The sentiment on the front of the card is just something I typed up on my laptop and printed on cream cardstock. I’m very pleased with how it turned out.

When I saw this freebie cut from SVG Cuts, I knew it had my dad’s birthday card written all over it and his birthday is in just a couple weeks. He loves to fish so this was perfect. I added the SVG Cuts fishing lure (also a freebie) to the vest also. I gave the lures more depth by adding feathers to them. I love how SVG Cuts included a gate card cut with this freebie. I used Recollections cardstock and I flocked the parts where the lures are with gray Martha Stewart flocking. Have a totally twisted day!
Hi everyone! Today I’m sharing a card my sister-in-law asked me to make for her friend who is having a baby boy. Here is what I came up with. I love making baby cards; they are sooo cute and fun to make. The cut is a freebie from Kadoodle Bug Designs. Isn’t it supper cute! I cut in on my Cricut Expression using the Sure Cuts A Lot software. I wet embossed the letters on the blocks so they were nice and shiny. The ribbon and pearl trim are from my recent Hobby Lobby haul. Love that ribbon! The stamp and die cut on the inside are from My Creative Time and the designer paper is from The Paper Studio. Have a totally twisted day!
