Snowman Cookie Boxes

 Hello my crafty friends! Been trying to catch up and get ready for the holidays. I am feeling so behind!! I gave my Cricut a workout this week making these adorable snowmen boxes for my daughter to give away to her Yearbook Co-editors and staff.


Sorry the pics aren't the greatest but I made these all the night before she had to take them to school so these are all taken in my kitchen around midnight after I bagged the baked goods and put them in the boxes.  The boxes are from My Scrap Chick. I have so many of her wonderful files and have barely even used any of them. Hopefully that will change this year as I would love to make more 3D items.  I cut out the eyes and carrot nose with my Cricut but the lashes and mouth are all hand drawn. I added some pink cheeks with chalk and white doodles with my Gelly Roll pen. I finally added the sparkle on the holly berries with my Wink Of Luna pen.


The little stitched tag is from the Craftin Desert Divas Pocket Pieces HI Dies and the sentiment is from the Baked With Love stamps. 


Here is the bunch I made. I think they turned out cute and I'm so happy her friends loved them! I don't know if I will have the time to do any crafty Christmas stuff since I am so behind but hopefully I will be able to play some more in my craft room. I hope you all have fun this time of year! I'm looking forward to NOT hosting Christmas and staying in my PJ's Christmas day LOL! Yep! I decided that I'm taking this year off from having a family Christmas dinner.

Thanks for hoppin by!!

Have a blessed day!

Thanks For Being So Mice!

Hi everyone!! It's been over a month since I've been in my craft room. Trying to find my crafty mojo again and get back into the groove. Today I am sharing a shaker card I made using the adorable sentiment and mouse from the Craftin Desert Diva's Animal Antics stamp set! This set is being featured on the blog and it is the last day it will be on sale. 




I stamped and colored my own back ground paper using the cutie pie mice with my Spectrum Noir markers. The little hearts are hand drawn. I used the oval die from the Banner Dies set to cut out the center for the shaker. The layers are from the Fancy Frame Dies. I added an extra layer of glitter white card stock and placed it on a gray card base. Finally I added a bow using this sparkly heart ribbon. I had no idea where I was going when I started this card and I hope you like the finished product!


I figured this could be a thank you card for any occasion or I could even make this into a 
Valentine's Day card with all the hearts!

Pink & Black Pocket Letter

Hi friends! Sorry I have been away for so long. My family lost someone so dear to us and it has been a rough few weeks. I needed a distraction so I am popping in to share this pocket letter I made for a new friend that I met at the Pocket Letter Pals Valley Girl Meet Up last month. She likes pink, black, bling, butterflies, coffee, and her spotted pit bull mix pup. So I used all that info to put this together.


For the tag I used the Indie Art cartridge for the butterfly and made the wings pop up. The top row I used a card with the roses cut from the Artfully Sent cartridge. I stamped it with a sentiment from the CDD Blooming For You stamps. I got the purses from Paisley and the Formal Occasions cartridges. I added some bling and used the CDD Pocket Pieces Hi Dies for most of the stitched rectangles in my PL. The hello with the butterfly is from the Lyrical Letters cartridge. I used glitter cardstock for the pink and the white and added mini pearls to the butterfly. 


The center row I used the Artfully Sent cartridge for the beautiful cutout. The butterfly and sequins are from Craftin Desert Divas. The center pocket is sooooo sparkly I wish it showed up better in the photos. I used all glitter cardstock from DCWV and the Monogram is from the Art Philosophy cartridge. The sparkle cutout is from the Disney Tinkerbell & Friends cartridge.


The bottom row is my favorite. I used this cute pup from the Animal Kingdom cartridge and colored him with my Spectrum Noir markers to look like her pup. I added brown pearls for his eyes and stamped the sentiment & paw using the CDD Animal Antics stamps. I made the center shaker with the cut from the Wild Card cartridge. The letter inside the shaker is from the Sweethearts cartridge.  And finally the pup with the thought cloud and bone I also colored with my Spectrum Noirs, I made using a die set from My Creative Time.


For the back I made a bunny card to tuck my letter into with the Sugar and Spice cartridge.  I filled the pockets with paperclips I made with the Love You A Latte cartridge, some prima flowers, die cuts from Craftin Desert Divas, twine and some stickers.


Here is a close up of the sparkly clips I made.

Happy Fall Y'all

Hello friends! Today I am posting on the Craftin Desert Divas blog and sharing this Fall themed card with you. I just love the fall colors and had so much fun coloring up this sweet image from the Beary Thankful stamps using my Spectrum Noir markers.


I wanted to keep the image as the focal point and started out thinking I was going to make a clean and simple card. (I don't think I have successfully accomplished this ever, LOL!) Then I leaned towards a masculine look going for simple patterned paper with the orange and brown gingham and the kraft card stock. Then.... feeling it was too plain I added a sparkly bow and a sprinkle of sequins and ended up with this. CAS and masculine.... very challenging for me haha!


I used some chalk to rosy up his cheeks and added some cute freckles with my white gel pen. I colored the handle and wheels with metallic silver and added sparkles to the red in his hat. Finally I added this perfect sentiment from the Hey Pumpkin stamps. The stitched layers are from the Fancy Frame dies and I inked the edges with Distress Ink.

Well that is my simple card and I hope you like it!!

Beary Best Wishes Rilakkuma SVG

Hello my crafty friends! Today I am sharing a card I made for one of my daughter's friend's birthday. These teenagers are all crazy over Rilakkuma. We bought her a bunch of stuff from Amazon and the Japan store at the mall but of course there are no cards. So I decided to give it a try and make my own svg. 


The card size is 5"x7". I found these images and I'm so happy with how it turned out! His little arms up made me think he would be so cute holding balloons. And I made this head into a perfect gift tag. The balloons, clouds, sentiment and voice bubble are all from Craftin Desert Divas


I sprinkled the background with iridescent sequins and then doodled the balloons with my white gel pen. I cut the clouds out with glitter card stock. I added glossy accents to the eyes and nose. Finally I added the twine for the string.


For the inside I stamped the Happy Birthday and added a couple more balloons.

Thanks so much for hopping by!!

Have a wonderful day!
