It musubi your day

During the week I received a package in the mail from Mama Elephant. I have to say, they are so quick with sending orders out and on time. Anyways, I was so excited to play with my new dies. I had a pile of scrap on my craft table so I just took from the pile instead of cutting up new paper. It's a vicious cycle. Lol!
I had just enough of that blue star paper from the project in the previous post. And I had this stamped Dandelion musubi image in the scrap pile. So I decided to make a shaker card using Doodlebug Designs sequins. It was quick and easy.
Hope your weekend is going well. I can't believe Easter is tomorrow. Enjoy your day and I have a bunch of eggs to boil! Happy Easter!!!

Happy Boy's Day favor box

Happy Good Friday!!! I just received this new box die from Sizzix today. It is from the newest release in the Where Women Cook line. Perfect size to package baked goods and pass out to family and friends.  It made me think of Boy's Day which is coming up in a couple weeks.
I used Doodlebug Designs card stock to make the box. And an older Sizzix tag die. I actually forgot that I had the matching Doodlebug baby stamp and die set so I was able to match the stamped monkey with the paper. The blue stars is the opposite side of the monkey paper.
Hope you're enjoying your holiday weekend! I forgot to mention, Happy Easter too!!!

Happy Birthday card

I wanted to share this birthday card that I made for my husband. Ssh... his birthday is on tax day and hopefully he won't see this.
I've had this screen door die for awhile. It's by Cheery Lynn Designs and even comes with the real screens. It was one of those impulse buys and then not knowing what I really wanted to make with it so I tossed it to the side and forgot about it for a year. And that's how long it took me to clean one of the piles behind my craft table.
I love this years Doodlebug Designs spring papers! They are so bright and cheery. 
I used Taj Clubhouse stencils to make the cat and mouse and Lasting Impressions papers.
Stamped sentiment is by Hero Arts.
Well, I'm still working on my taxes and hopefully will be able to mail it in before the deadline. At least its a good reminder for my husband's birthday.
Have a great weekend!!!

You're so sweet!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!! I totally forgot today was St. Patrick's Day and left the house wearing red and blue. Lol! Anyways, here's a card that I made over the weekend since I had these leftover scraps on my craft table. 
I got this free cut file from Miss Kate's Cuttables. There is a freebie everyday on their website. This one is called bunny in egg. I used my Eclips machine to cut this out. I'm still amazed at how well it cuts out all the tiny little pieces. I've been using the same blade to cut many projects out and it's still cutting so smoothly.
The embossing folder is Eileen Hull's pinwheels and the stamp sentiment is also from Sizzix.
On my last post I said I was going to start scrapbooking again but I have yet to start on it. Everything is in a pile on my table. I have to print some photos first before I can start working on my pages. Hopefully soon!
Thanks for stopping by today and have a great week!!!

Happy Girl's Day card

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.
 Here's a picture of the Tim Holtz die that I used. They just arrived in the stores.
Well, I finally decided to try this out. I've been looking at the Snap collection every time I go to Ben Franklin Crafts and after seeing all my friend's albums, I thought I'd get back into scrapbooking. It's been so many years since I last scrapbooked my photos and I have all the supplies that I need. I also bought a bunch of 12x12 photo sleeves for Project Life.
Well, thanks for checking back here and I hope to start sharing my scrapbook pages soon!

Hello Kitty Happy Birthday Card

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.
The stamped birthday sentiment is from Hero Arts. It's an older clear set.
Now I have to figure out what to get her for her birthday!
Hope your holidays were merry and bright! Thanks for stopping by today!!!

Let it snow

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.
This is today's batch and I'll cut different ones tomorrow. I'm keeping it very simple.
I have quite a bit of Christmas dies to choose from. I'm hoping to make some cards too.
Thanks for stopping by and I do hope I get to finish the rest of my Christmas to do list!!!
