New Year! New Resolution!

This year I have lots of resolutions and some I plan on trying to keep!  Over the month of Oct/Nov I made several Winter Holiday Cards to sell at school.  I was able to sell several but people kept telling me they wanted Birthday/Sympathy/Thank You's so currently I'm starting to plan an attack and mass production of Birthday Cards to take to work and see how they do.

I'm planning on working on them after I get some much needed school work done so most likely they won't be done until after the New Year begins.  So stay tuned.

If you see anything you like on here, let me know and I'll be happy to send your way.  I have PayPal and cards are $2.50 or 5 for $10.

Have a Happy and Healthy New Year!

Chocolate Nuggets with a Twist

This summer I made nuggets as favors for my daughter's birthday party!  This evening I needed to make a small gift for a birthday as well as Halloween so I figured they would be a good option.  These make great gifts and are completely customizable!  They run about $2.50 a box!

I've Been Boo'ed!!

So yesterday at work I found a special treat in my mailbox!  In it was a note that said I had been Boo'ed!  It's now my turn to Boo someone else!  I love this time every year, almost as much as Secret Santa's!  I took the opportunity to make my Mummy Jar that I've been dying to make.  I saw the idea on Pinterest, and I've had the supplies for a little bit now.  It make a cute light you can put on your stoop or porch for Halloween!  I also made a small box of chocolate nuggets as well because you can always use a little chocolate!
What you need: 
 Mason Jar, White Streamers, Googly Eyes, Paint Brush,
Hot Glue, Mod Podge, Spray Sealer, and Tea Light Candles

The jar wrapped up!

Eyes  Hot Glued On!

All Lit Up!  Boo!!!

Merry Christmas #5

This card was one that I have always wanted to try.  Last year Stampin' Up!  came out with this really cute owl punch......the only catch was that you could make all kinds of things with it.  I saw some of the cutest reindeer and penguins!  So I borrowed my upline's punch and got to work making some reindeer!  They turned out really cute.  I really like the way the DSP adds just the right touch to the background.  The white stitching turned out really cute too!

Ink:  Real Red
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Real Red, Crumb Cake, Chocolate Chip, and Red DSP
Punches: Owl Punch, Snowflake Punch(non SU), and Scalloped edge and Circle.
Stamps:  Four the Holidays

Seasons Greetings #4

So this is my 4th set of cards to sell for the holidays.  I really like the gold embossing work on the top.  Different take on the traditional tree!  This week I haven't been able to do a whole lot of stamping however, I do have a cute reindeer card and a cute penguin card in the work.  Next up, I'm going to be working on some Hanukkah cards!

Ink: Old Olive, VersaMark
Paper: Old Olive, Whisper White
Stamps: Baroque Motifs, Delightful Decorations, Fruit of the Season
Accessories: Dimensionals, Gold Glory Embossing Powder, Ribbon

Be Merry #3

I made this new holiday card last week.  The idea is pretty simple and it has more of a classic look.  The colors in this card are my favorite colors to use for the holidays.   I just love how they look together.

Ink: Real Red
Stamps: Shapes & Shadows, Warm Words
Paper: Certainly Celery, Whisper White, Old Olive DSP, and Real Red DSP
Accessories: Dotted Embossing Folder, Red Grossgrain Ribbon

Seasons Greetings #1

Yes I'm doing exactly what I complain about each and every year......"It's not even Halloween and Holiday things are already out and on sale."  However, I'm going to be working hard to sell some of my creations next month so my goal is try to make at least 10 cards a week to sell.  So here is the first of many holiday creations!  What I like about this one is that it is pretty generic and it uses two of my new stamp sets  and my new punch.


These two doilies were handcut.

Stamps: Delicate Doilies, Curly Cute
Paper: Whisper White, Wisteria Wonder, Elegant Eggplant
Ink: Wisteria Wonder, Elegant Eggplant
Extras:  Lace Border Punch, Rhinestone, Dimensionals.
Idea cased from: Trinity Designs

I have 3 of these cards.  If you are interested in purchasing they are $2.50 each + 50 cents postage if I have to ship to you.

Crayon Monogram

Our day care provider just built a new home and moved over the weekend.  We wanted to do something special for her because of all that she does for us.  So I decided it would be nice to make her something for her new home to put in her day care area.  I got the design from a pin on my very favorite new site, Pinterest.  Click here for the original post with design.

To make it yourself all you will need is Approx 2-4 boxes of 24 crayola crayons, 1 piece of scrapbook paper, hot glue gun, and small glue dots (these I used to stick down and form the letter before I hot glued the final copy).  I used a die cut from my stamping supplies for the saying.
In Progress

All Done!

Taylor excited to give it to Ms. Karyn

Cutest Favors EVER!

So one of the newest and favorites from Stampin' Up this year is their Nugget Wrappers and MatchBox.  Using this cute set a die cut for the box and some Address Labels I made just the cutest favors for Taylor's Birthday Party.  The possibilities are endless with these wrappers.  They are even coming out with more occasions in their Holiday Mini!  OMG!  I'm in heaven!

Hair Candy!

So I've been getting a little more crafty.  My daughter Taylor has grown some more hair and I of course had to go out and buy a whole bunch of barrettes for her.  Then I got them home and realized I didn't have anything to put them in.  So I bought a small jar from Walmart for approximately $3 and dressed it up with some stampin' up punches, accessories, and designer paper.  I LOVE how it turned out!

Easter Basket

So last night, yes one day AFTER Easter, I know, I made two little Easter Baskets for two special people to Taylor and I for today.  I used Certainly Celery, Pretty In Pink and an old DSP pattern I had laying around.  They turned out pretty cute if I do say so myself.  I can take no credit I got the idea from Chic n' Scratch.  Great blog, if you are stamper, btw.
