Happy Birthday card

I wanted to share this birthday card that I made for my husband. Ssh... his birthday is on tax day and hopefully he won't see this.
I've had this screen door die for awhile. It's by Cheery Lynn Designs and even comes with the real screens. It was one of those impulse buys and then not knowing what I really wanted to make with it so I tossed it to the side and forgot about it for a year. And that's how long it took me to clean one of the piles behind my craft table.
I love this years Doodlebug Designs spring papers! They are so bright and cheery. 
I used Taj Clubhouse stencils to make the cat and mouse and Lasting Impressions papers.
Stamped sentiment is by Hero Arts.
Well, I'm still working on my taxes and hopefully will be able to mail it in before the deadline. At least its a good reminder for my husband's birthday.
Have a great weekend!!!

You're so sweet!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!! I totally forgot today was St. Patrick's Day and left the house wearing red and blue. Lol! Anyways, here's a card that I made over the weekend since I had these leftover scraps on my craft table. 
I got this free cut file from Miss Kate's Cuttables. There is a freebie everyday on their website. This one is called bunny in egg. I used my Eclips machine to cut this out. I'm still amazed at how well it cuts out all the tiny little pieces. I've been using the same blade to cut many projects out and it's still cutting so smoothly.
The embossing folder is Eileen Hull's pinwheels and the stamp sentiment is also from Sizzix.
On my last post I said I was going to start scrapbooking again but I have yet to start on it. Everything is in a pile on my table. I have to print some photos first before I can start working on my pages. Hopefully soon!
Thanks for stopping by today and have a great week!!!

Happy Girl's Day card

Hi and happy Tuesday!!! I didn't realize that I last posted over a month ago. Wow! Anyways, I made a Girl's Day card today. I used the new Tim Holtz frameworks honeycomb die to make the cutouts. The stamps are from Dandelion Designs and they are the mini wood stamps. Real easy to color because they are so small.
 Here's a picture of the Tim Holtz die that I used. They just arrived in the stores.
Well, I finally decided to try this out. I've been looking at the Snap collection every time I go to Ben Franklin Crafts and after seeing all my friend's albums, I thought I'd get back into scrapbooking. It's been so many years since I last scrapbooked my photos and I have all the supplies that I need. I also bought a bunch of 12x12 photo sleeves for Project Life.
Well, thanks for checking back here and I hope to start sharing my scrapbook pages soon!

Hello Kitty Happy Birthday Card

Hi and Happy New Year!!! Wow, its already the new year and I keep forgetting to write 2014 on my checks and my sales orders. Lol! My daughter's birthday is coming up in a couple days and so I went down to my craft room today to make her a birthday card. I just love this Sizzix circle flip-its #2 die. You can make quick and easy cards with this die and since she loves Hello Kitty, I took out one of my dies to make it.
The stamped birthday sentiment is from Hero Arts. It's an older clear set.
Now I have to figure out what to get her for her birthday!
Hope your holidays were merry and bright! Thanks for stopping by today!!!

Let it snow

Last year I didn't make any Christmas tags to put on gifts and I ended up using store bought ones, oh oh. So this year I decided to make a bunch of gift tags and use up paper that I have been hoarding for a long time! I used a Tim Holtz gift tag die to cut all the tags and a snowman die from last year. Love those steel ruled dies where I can cut through 6 layers at a time.
This is today's batch and I'll cut different ones tomorrow. I'm keeping it very simple.
I have quite a bit of Christmas dies to choose from. I'm hoping to make some cards too.
Thanks for stopping by and I do hope I get to finish the rest of my Christmas to do list!!!

Valentine's candy box/card

Seriously, I was all set to post this the other day and then my computer went wonky again. I could not get on the internet all day and night. I've been MIA for awhile and missed the whole month of November. My husband had eye surgery the end of October and I spent 3 weeks driving him around everyday and it was rough getting anything done. So glad he is much better now. 
So here is a candy box/card that I made to give to the ladies in the stamp club group that I belong to. I got this cut file from Eunice who has a blog called "a star for chiemi". Go and visit her, she is amazing! I used my Eclips machine to cut this out. The dog and cat are stencils from Taj Clubhouse. I believe it's one of their latest releases.
I kept this simple since I was running out of time to finish it. And would you believe that this is not the initial idea? I actually tore off everything on Monday and redid it all.
Hopefully I can start working on my Christmas cards and tags that I need to finish.
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope to post some Christmas projects soon!!!

Halloween treats

Happy Halloween!!! Just a quick post about these easy Halloween treats that I made the other day. I finally bought the WeR Memory Keepers envelope punch board last weekend and saw this treat holder idea on Pinterest and ended up making a bunch of them for the ladies at my doctor's office. It's a great way to use up those leftover scraps!
The stamps are from Hero Arts Halloween "ink & stamp"set. I used a bunch of punches for the circles and scallops.
By the way, after I saw Joy from The Joy of Crafting making envelopes last week, it sparked my interest to get one of these tools!
Anyways, hope you all had a great Halloween!!!
