This is what I get for hanging out on YouTube watching all of your beautiful swivel charms. Now I’m addicted to making them! Lol. Visited M’s two days ago and bought a bunch of charms and glass beads on sale and then had to stop at the store today and buy some more. Yup, I’m addicted!
Here are my first two charms and a video.
I was honored to be selected by My Scrap Chick to make a project from their new birdhouse explosion box cut. This was my first explosion box and I thoroughly enjoyed making it! After watching my video, head on over to My Scrap Chick and check out all their awesome cuts!
I’ve been wanting to make these sour cream candy containers for quite some time now. In fact, I bought the crimper over a year ago and have never used it until tonight. Can you believe it! Peachy Keen is having a challenge where you have to create a project using a toilet paper roll and a Peachy Keen stamp. The sour cream container immediately popped into my head. These are very easy to make. Just cut your paper to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 then use some strong adhesive to secure the paper to your toilet paper roll. Use some more strong adhesive to close the ends shut — with the ends going opposite directions. Crimp the ends and you have yourself a nice, sturdy sour cream candy container. Easy peasy! While I was at M’s last week, I noticed that the Puffers were on clearance. So I picked up some heart shaped ones. I got mine for $1.49 each (normally $5.99). There was a gem on the front of the hearts. I carefully took the gem off and then stamped an adorable Peachy Keen face to the front of the heart using StazOn ink. Your Peachy Keen stamps are not just for stamping paper, you can stamp just about anything with them. Cool, huh.

Now, I have Blue Clues in my head….lol. I got this super cute mailbox SVG from My Scrap Chick. OMG, I just love this little mailbox. It is super easy to put together. The designer paper is from Recollections and the brad is from the Eyelet Center. I cut the SVG on my Cricut Expression using the Sure Cuts A Lot software. Have a totally twisted time and don’t forget to go check out My Scrap Chick’s site!
I entered this in the Cooking with Cricut Challenge.
I’m featured on the Sarah Hamer Designs (Pink Cricut) blog with my heart wreath door hanger!! How exciting !! Check it out at http://www.pinkcricut.com/2012/01/to-2/ and don’t forget to link up your project this week on her blog.
I love, love, love to put door hangers on all the bedroom doors in my house. I was kinda tired of the ones I had been hanging on them for Valentines Day in the past, so I decided to make one. I made quilled roses out of a romance novel and then inked the edges of the roses with some Tim Holtz distressed ink. I added stickpins I made and then topped it off with a charm and a sentiment from Pink by Design. I absolutely love how it turned out. Now I need to make one for all the remaining doors. =)
I’m so excited that Sarah Hamer (Pink Cricut) selected my project to be the featured Pink Linky for this week. Click on the logo to check out her blog!
Sarah from the Pink Cricut is in love with a pair of cowboy boots and was disappointed when she didn’t get them for Christmas. So, I’m posting pictures of my boots and my daughter’s boots to help convince Mr. Pink Cricut to buy them for her … Valentines Day is approaching …. lol
Hi everyone. It was so much fun participating in the Pink by Design Ustream tonight. I sooo missed participating in them. We did such a cute project this evening and I wanted to share it with all of you. It was super easy to create — even though my ATG ran out early into the project — yikes. I scrambled and found a small mono adhesive which saved the day. I didn’t have enough time to change out the ATG tape to a new roll.
Don’t forget to check out the new Pink by Design stamps! Sara did an awesome job once again!

My Tim Holtz distresser ink collection is growing so I thought it was time that I organized it. I like to use the finger dobbers with my distressers and I recently saw that there was a plastic tray organizer available on the market for them. I couldn’t find the organizer at my M’s or J’s so I decided to find something close and make it work. I found this plastic bead container at J’s for less than $5 and the dobbers fit in it! Yay! I purchase the dobbers from my J’s too (I need to get more..lol). I cut a piece of cardstock to fit the lid and inked some samples on it so I know which dobber belongs to which distresser ink pad. I also labeled all my ink pads with the name on one side and a sample on the other side.
Thanks for stopping by today. Have a happy scrappy holiday!
