My Fall Critter Flip Mini Book

Hello crafty friends!! Yesterday was my crafty gal meet up and I had such a blast! What an amazing and fun group of ladies!! We played a game of "pass the saran wrap ball" that was full of goodies and we each had 10 seconds to unwrap a layer and pass it on. It was hysterically funny!! I didn't win anything but my sis managed to score a small rubber stamp, washi tape and a Michael's Gift card woo hoo! I haven't laughed that much in ages!

Today I am sharing the Fall Critter themed flip/mini book I made for the white elephant exchange. I am happy to say that it was  loved by the person who "stole" it haha! Yay!

I used a file from Lori Whitlock for the mini album and My Scrap Chick for the foxy boxy. 

 I created my first paper tassel! How fun is that! The cutie pie fox on the cover of the book is from KaDoodle Bug Designs. The leaves are from my Pooh and Friends Cricut cartridge. I created the hello svg and cut it out with glittery gold card stock. The owl is a charm from JoAnns. 

The foxy boxy is an altered cut. It is normally a belly box but I switched it up to house my little book.

The mini album fit perfectly and I wrapped it with this fall colored ribbon to secure it inside. 

I had this adorable owl tissue paper that fit perfectly with the theme. I will try to get pics up of the flip book I "stole" during the white elephant exchange as well as the goody bags I got. I can't wait to go through and open them all up! 

Thanks so much for hoppin by!! Have a blessed day!

Making Buttons with my Button Maker

Hi crafty friends!! I have been quite busy crafting these past 2 weeks working little by little on my goody bags for the upcoming Crafty Gal get together next Sunday. Did I tell you I'm making 30 of them???? Plus I'm also working on a mini album for the White Elephant swap....

So here is a pic of some of the Fall/Halloween buttons I have made. I have been playing around with sizes and figuring it all out as you will see on my video. 

The buttons are quite easy to make once you figure out measurements and such.  I definitely had a fun time! 

Thanks so much for hopping by!! 
I hope you have a blessed day!

Smaug Happy Birthday Card

Hello friends! Today is my hubby's birthday and I made 
a special card for him....

We are big fans of The Hobbit and The Lord of The Rings. I am so happy that I found this adorable Smaug image on google. I wish I knew the artist to give credit because I am in love with it! I made it into an svg to make hubby this card. I am getting better at making my own svg's using Make The Cut software. I wasn't sure if it was still supported but I emailed the company and they promised they would be doing more updates so I purchased it.  This svg turned out terrific! I love that I can make any themed card I choose for my family and friends!  I made it pretty big, sized at 5.5"x 7.5". I like to make my birthday cards big like the store bought ones so they don't disappear and look so tiny next to them when displayed, LOL!

I wish the pics did this justice.... I love the gold shimmery foil background that reminds me of dragon scales. I love the gold glittery paper for the heart and the sparkly Arkenstone (The Heart of the Mountain). I used a blue metallic pen to outline the stone for added dimension and then topped it off with iridescent Stickles. I added the gold coins for effect. I think they were from Create A Critter. I drew on the sparkly spots using an orange glittery gel pen. They would have been way too tiny to cut out. Its sparkly and shimmery yet still masculine! The label is from the Fabulous Finds cartridge and I wrote out the sentiment since I didn't have a stamp (I should have typed it out, I hate my writing, lol!) 

I distressed the inside panel to match the label on the front. I used Jaded Blossom So Many Birthdays 2 for the inside sentiment. He loved his card and said it was the best one I've made, yay!

Thank you so much for hopping by! 
I hope you have a blessed day!
