Need a hug?

I am on Cardz TV Gallery blog today sharing my last project for this term. Mary is just the sweetest to work with but I will be on hiatus after this project. I am taking some time off from teams for a while. I will still be posting upcoming Timeless Twine projects as I remain on that team. I am going to spend some more time with my family for the holidays, take a LONG vacation with the hub and relax!

I used the stamp set "Just Saying"from Cardz TV and I thought it was the perfect little sentiment for this panda bear. I am going to make a point to send this to a friend as I typically just make things and it doesn't go anywhere after that.

Don't forget there is always a challenge going on at Cardz TV you can join in on and win some awesome stamps. Mary has some adorable sets for just about everything.

Thanks for stopping by!

Like a Firecracker

Today I am on Timeless Twine blog. This week we were to use the colors Aqua, White & Red so I wanted to use the Firecracker Twine for my project. I used a cute kraft pillow box from Bella Creationz. A list of supplies will be below. It made a fun quick project since I utilized dies for all the cuts including the tags! The Firecracker twine just goes so well with these colors. 

The paper is AC Cardstock from various color collections I have. Its my favorite paper so I buy it in the 60/pk assortments. I don't own them all yet but I do have several of each of my favorites. I tend to use the Tropicals, Brights, Earth Tones and Primaries the most so I stocked up on them when they are half price at Joann.com. Bella Creationz has loads of stuff to make super cute treats or gifts to give. Have you seen the mini coffee cups with lids? SUPER duper cute and candy and loads of other things can be put in them to create a unique, cute gift. I have done several projects with these little cups making holders.

Gifts for Friends

Today I am on My Craft Spot sharing my last projects with the October Release. It has been really fun and lots of great products to work with. I used several stamp sets & a die set that are listed below.  Its pretty gloomy here and taking a picture is challenging as I do not have my photo area set up yet. So the picture doesn't do justice to the stamped area. I also used the silver paper I love around the sentiment but it really doesn't show up well here and neither do the sequins. 

I used the curvy box for the first project (link below) from MCS. The sentiment is Christmas Chalkboard set. I used Timeless Twine Simply white twine. 

I used the Bow file from the Present Box SVG file for the project below. I created the file for the coffee cup holder and I think it turned out pretty cute. I used new papers my friend sent me to add the layers of pattern paper to it. I hung the "Tiny Tag" from the top and Love those tiny tags. 

I thank Kimberly for asking me to Guest for the entire release and appreciate the opportunity. It was so fun to play with the stamps and I loved each set I used!

You mocha me happy!

Today I am on Timeless Twine. Stacy has these super cute little 4oz coffee cups/lids in the store and I just love them. You can put candy inside them, coffee or cocoa mixes etc. I decided to pair mine up with a Keurig cup. So I decided I would create a cut file for a holder! I sketched it out on paper figuring out my dimensions and what I needed and then created it in my Silhouette program. I did cut part of it twice just to tweak it a bit.

The box or main portion that houses the cup and keurig pod were perfect on first try. I just had to get the other part tweaked a bit. I think changing out the window shape will be cute for various occasions as well. I used some decorative paper for the cup and a punched circle just to decorate the top of the pod a bit. I didn't do a cute belly band for the cup since it went down in the holder I just kept it simple.

We are doing "Kraft Christmas" so I knew that the majority of it I wanted Kraft color and I wanted it to remain simple. I added a couple sequins from Bella Creationz and used a sentiment on the oval from My Creative Time and the oval die. The Noel is die cut from My Craft Spot's Tiny Tags and the sentiment is from there as well.

I used some see thru white ribbon and tied Cherry Red Twine on it to make a bow as well as wrapped it around the top of the box. I love the way it came out.

Owl treat you good!

Today I am sharing my cute little owl box treat holder on Cardz TV Gallery blog. I created this from a silhouette file. I failed to remember to take a side profile so you could see it was a box! I used some Christmas color tones without using Christmas papers. I love owls and this one turned out super duper cute. I used Mary's "Christmas Critter Captions"stamp set.

I used some Christmas Twine from Bella Creationz to tie the top and some Pumpkin orange twine from Bella Creationz to tie on the sentiment just for some more color. I pulled the colors from the papers. My sweet friend Brianna sent me several really cute paper pads for my birthday which is where the pattern paper came from. The solids are American Craft textured cardstock.

My Craft Spot Challenge

Today I am joining in on My Craft Spots Challenge "Sentiment as a focal point" and you should join in as well.  I decided on a slider card and this was a file I created a while back. Picture just doesn't capture how it looks too good as it is gloomy here. Exciting news is tuesday I am expecting my new camera!!!! So hopefully I can learn how to use it and get much more professional pictures. I plan to order some light boxes as well. Takes time and sure takes a lot of money to craft ha ha

So stop over and join in on the challenge!
