Happy Halloween Everyone!

Wow...time has really flown by! Can't believe it is almost Halloween ( my favorite time of the year)!

Need a super easy and super quick favor or gift idea this year?


Supplies Needed:
Orange Cardstock
Strong Adhesive
Martha Stewart Punch All over the page Jack O Lanterns  Punch
Scoring Tool
Post Its
Small Clear Bags

Start by cutting your cardstock base: 7″ x 3.5″.
Score the cardstock at 3.25″ and 3.75″.

These dimensions came from Kerrys Paper Crafts! Great stuff on her page!

Fold, on score lines.

I like to then insert my post it into the holder so I can get an idea of where to punch on the top of the post it holder.
Punch image in the center of the top portion of your post it holder (cover).
Adhere post-it inside cover.
Insert holders in bag and pass out to your favorite boils and ghouls!

So Simple!

Have a Happy Halloween!


Thursday, March 17, 2011's been awhile!

Hey everyone! It's been awhile since I updated this thing. Truth be crafting efforts have been more geared to crochet and yarn than paper crafting! I hope to combine both soon but wanted to give a heads up to those of your who do crochet, about a great deal i found over on amazon for Crochet Today! (1-year). I do love this magazine...but didn't want to pay full price unless I had too lol. However, until March 19th it is only $8.99!!! THAT IS A STEAL! A savings of over $25.00.

If you crochet, I don't think you will be disapointed with this magazine.

Happy crafting and Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Merry Christmas!

Already your saying? Well yes if you want your wrapping to look like this come December 25th!

I was unaware that something so simple would take so much time.....but it's worth it in the end right? LOL

This would have been so much faster and easier in design studio or on a gypsy.....

I hope Santa brings me a GYPSY this year for Christmas...or I may bring myself one...they are only $100.00 bucks at Michael's on Black Friday!! *crosses my fingers and toes*

Supplies needed:

Red Wrapping Paper
Black Cardstock
Silver Cardstock

I cut the buttons from Plantain Schoolbook at 1 inch.
The scallop was cut from Plantain Schoolbook at 8 inches on length to fit.
The Belt Buckle was cut from Paper Doll Dress Up at 2 inches (REAL DIAL SIZE MUST BE USED) and 1.5 inches.

Thanks for looking and Happy Holidays!

fall crafting

Today was a very fun filled craft day. I was able to work on some more of my apple cider sliders for co-workers and crochet this spooktacular owl.

Hope everyone is enjoying the fall weather and crafting the nights and days away.

Apple Cider Slider Card

Here is a quick slider card I made using the wild card cartridge. I made this for the recent Pink Stamper challenge. The challenge was to make something for someone else. I plan on giving this as a Halloween treat to a co-worker.

Thanks for looking!

wedding card

Wow! It feels like forever since I posted something. Ok maybe it HAS been forever lol but hopefully in the next few weeks I will have some fun and exciting projects to share with you all.

Just wanted to showcase a quick card I made for my friend's wedding this past weekend.  The wedding was a lot of fun and the bride really loved her card. She said she recieved a lot of cards that looked the same and this one was very special. That is the number one reason I like to make a handmade gift or card, nobody else will ever have the same thing :)

Hope everyone is doing well and happy crafting!

What an exciting time to be a crafter...
Happy viewing and shopping!
