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!
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
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!
I’m super excited to share with you today a 3D project I made from SVG Cuts’ Bundle of Joy set! This super cute baby buggy was so easy to make. The hardest part for me was figuring out which designer papers to use. I wound up having to buy a baby boy stack as I don’t have any baby boy papers (can you believe that). But, who really needs an excuse to buy new paper pads….lol. I needed a gift card holder for a friend’s new baby boy and this buggy is perfect for holding a gift card. Check out my video to see all the products I used and check out SVG Cuts for some really great cut files. Enjoy!
Happy father’s day! I want to wish my dad a special happy father’s day and also want to wish my hubby a special happy father’s day. Here is one of the father’s day cards I made. I usually have a tough time making masculine cards but for some strange reason, this one came to me pretty easily. I made the ribbon by cutting 2 one inch strips 12″ long and then scored every 1/2 inch. The letters are Tim Holtz grunge letters that I colored red with my Copics and then heat embossed with red powder and then again in clear powder, which gave it a pretty cool grungy look.
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!
Hi! Thought I’d share with you a card I made for My Favorite Things (MFT) Wednesday Stamp Challenge (WSC) #69. This was the first time I entered this weekly challenge that is based in a sketch. Here is the sketch we all had to follow.
Here are my supplies.
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.
