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.

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.
Hope your holidays were merry and bright! Thanks for stopping by today!!!

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.
Thanks for stopping by and I do hope I get to finish the rest of my Christmas to do list!!!

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.
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope to post some Christmas projects soon!!!

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!
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!!!

I spent this past weekend cutting out boxes on my Eclips machine. The albums, bags and boxes cartridge is probably my most used cartridge. Since I had this Taj bunny stencil out, I decided to use it to decorate the boxes. I know, crazy that I actually sat there and embossed and cut all the pieces out by hand.
So, two weeks ago, our downstairs flooded. Actually, I've been smelling this strange sewage smell for awhile now and couldn't figure out where it was coming from. Several months ago, the downstairs bathroom had a lot of water on the floor and it kept getting worst. It wasn't coming from the toilet so I knew the toilet wasn't plugged. It was dirty water coming out from the wall. I had told the property manager about it but he told me to just monitor it. Well, I went to put something in the bedroom part of the downstairs and found water and dirt all over the carpet.
So, this is how I spent the last couple weeks. I had to move everything out of the bedroom into my craft room all by myself. Fun!
And since I had been doing that, I decided to clean my craft room at the same time. Organizing and purging old catalogs and samples and craft stuffs. So glad that everything is now fixed and the smell is gone and I can go back to crafting again.
Thanks for sticking with me here and hope you're having a great work week!!!

I just picked up this new Sizzix die - square accordion fold card from the store last weekend and finally had the chance to make something with it and use the magnetic platform for the first time. I am so impressed how strong the magnet is on the platform. I used another stencil from Taj that I bought when I bought the panda bear couple weeks ago. This one is a hula bunny but I decided to make it without the skirt.
Thanks for stopping by today and hope to be back real soon!
