Daisy doily bag tutorial

Here is something quick and easy to make if you need to give a little gift to someone.I used the Sizzix daisy doily die and the new turtle from the baby line.Here is a side view of the bag. You can put all kinds of treats in the bag or even craft supplies.This is what the bottom of the bag looks like. I just tied the top of the 2 pieces together with a piece of tulle.

Step 1: Cut 2 pieces out of the daisy doily die. Step 2: Cut a piece of cardstock 4 1/2" x 9". Score on the short side, 4" in and from the other side 4" in. There should be an inch in the middle from both score lines. I hope you can see it here.
Step 3: If you want to, you can use a Sizzix embossing folder to emboss the 2 daisy doily diecuts to give it added dimension. I like the Sizzix embossing folders because they are an A2 card size and it is bigger than the Cuttlebug folders.Step 4: Take your strip of cardstock and fold on the crease lines. It should look like this.Step 5: Place 2 way tape around the 4 sides of the daisy doily diecuts. I use Scor-Tape because it's stickier and holds a lot better. This is what it should look like when you lay the strip of cardstock over the 2 daisy doily diecuts.
Step 6: This is what it looks like when it is turned over.Step 7: Go ahead and decorate the front of your bag and you're finished. Oh and don't forget your favors.

He had me laughing so hard

About a week and a half ago, we taped another segment for the Joy of Crafting tv show. I forgot that Joy mentioned to me that Augie T. would also be there. This guy is so hilarious and had all of us laughing so hard, I had tears in my eyes. See how he takes pictures?This was taken on my phone so the coloring is a little off. The show will air the month of June on OC16. He's making that face again. Sorry Joy but this is the only photo that I got of you and Augie. I just wanted to share this with all of you and hope you don't mind that there isn't a craft project for today. Thanks for stopping by and I really appreciate reading all of your comments!!!

Sneak peeky

I haven't disappeared, just been busy with all the make & takes we were doing around town and off island. Nine days of it... and now I'm feeling run down and coming down with a cold.
Here's a sneaky of one of the Hello Kitty dies shipping out this week to the stores.
I cut her out in a tan color for her bathing suit. This is the aloha Hello Kitty die.
I used the HK embossing folder again and glittered her top.
This is the make & take that I did for Ben Franklin Kailua this past Saturday for their annual paper party. It's a matchbook style party favor to hold a little bag of candy in it.
Kitty's head is cut from the sitting kitty sizzlit die. Stamp is from Hero Arts.
I had scraps left and made this one from the scraps.Thanks for stopping by and have a great evening!

Scraps from my stash and a RAK from Teri

I haven't been posting as much lately due to all the kits I'm cutting, but over the weekend, I tried to unclutter my work table and ended up using some of my scraps to make a sample to send to the mainland. This is one of the new Hello Kitty embossing folders that should be arriving in the stores soon. At first I didn't think anything of it but when I ran it through the Big Shot, I loved the look of the impression that it left on the card. If that kitty looks familiar, it's a leftover from the make & take at J's that we had over the weekend.

I was so surprised when my gf Teri showed up at the store on Saturday with this really cute double shaker card that she made just for me. Thanks so much Teri, I love this card!!!

It's made like a frame and has a stand on the back. I'm still trying to figure out how she made this but if you look closely, you can see the little micro beads and dew drops that is in this card. If you want to learn how to make this card, go visit her blog and she has a tutorial on making it.

Well, I'm off to Crafts in the City for a make & take this morning. Thanks for stopping by and have a great Tuesday!!!

Happy hippo

I actually had a little time to make something today using two new dies from the May release for Sizzix.

This box is called bag with scallops #2. It's a cute size and can hold a handful of candy in it. The hippo die is from the baby line. I stuck a pop dot under the head to give it some dimesion. Anyways, the new dies are in the store now and I haven't been there yet, because I know I'll want them all.

Tomorrow I will be at the lounge (Krazy Karaoke) for the Joy of Crafting tv show. The show will air in the month of June. I'll be with my gf Cheri from Sizzix. Then on Saturday, we'll be at J's doing a make & take from 10-12 pm. If you can't make it then, we'll be at Crafts In The City on Tuesday from 11-1 pm.

Happy birthday to my hubby

Well, today is tax day but it is also my husband's birthday. I made this card at the last minute,before meeting him for dinner. I love that new grid background stamp from Hero Arts. It looks like printed paper. We went to Macaroni Grill at Ala Moana Shopping Center. They give you a lot of food and we probably could of shared one plate because we ate the same thing and we both had half a plate left.

I haven't had much time to create this week and this is probably the only card I made for the week except another one for a make & take next week. I've been busy cutting kits for all the make & takes we will be doing around town and outer islands.


Quickutz hedgehog die, Hero Arts stamps, American Crafts ribbon, and MS border punch.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great Thursday!

Sweet Easter treats

I feel so special when people make me things that they spent time on creating. My gf Teri who I have lunch with every week made this special Easter basket for me.It is the cutest thing filled with a lot of treats! This is the first time I have seen the Anya image and it's a pretty good size. I like how she decorated the box using the Hello Kitty bunny and chicks die and I had never seen that fence die before but she was lucky she found her stash. Thanks Teri and you always know my favorite treats!I received these pretty handmade earrings in the mail on Friday and it was from Denise who I just met recently at one of the make & takes at the store. I had such a hard time taking a photo of the earrings but it is a real pretty blue color. There wasn't much sun in my kitchen so the pictures came out quite dark. Anyways, thank you so much Denise!!! I wore the earrings yesterday and will wear them again today. I love handmade earrings!Amy, who I met from one of my make & takes, made me this cute Easter bag of goodies (and it's filled with some of my favorites too) in a french fry box. So cute!!! I had other candies given to me but they somehow disappeared from the snack table. LOL!Here's a photo of the project we made yesterday at Scrapbook Heaven. It is a Hello Kitty magnet that is cut using chipboard and the Hello Kitty face embosslit from Sizzix. Ignore the blue can behind it. I had to use that to stick the magnet on. This was probably one of the fastest make & takes I have ever made using a Hello Kitty die.
Thanks for stopping by and hope you're enjoying your Easter Sunday!!!

Busy bee

It's that time of the year again when I'm busy as a bee. I made this card over a week ago and forgot to post it.It's one of the new Sizzix XL dies called card flower. The bee is from a Hello Kitty deco strip die.I glittered it up with prisma glitter from Hero Arts. It was a real easy card to make.
Well tomorrow is Good Friday and most people are off from work but I'll be in my craftroom cutting many kits for all the upcoming make & takes that I am scheduled for.
On Saturday, I'll be at Scrapbook Heaven from 10-11 am doing a make & take. They have a big event going on all day. Stop by and say hello if you're in the area.
Thanks for stopping by today and have a great holiday weekend!!!

Hello Kitty bunny costume sizzlit tutorial

Here is a tutorial to help you put those Hello Kitty sizzlit die pieces together. I've had many requests on how to do the piecing part.Step 1: First off, I always run all the cardstock that I am using to cut the pieces, through my Xyron machine. Keep all your scraps too because they come in handy whenever you do piecing.
I am using the Hello Kitty bunny costume sizzlit die for this tutorial.
Step 2: You will need to cut the die pieces in both white and pink cardstock for the layering part.
I also put a small piece of yellow cardstock to cut the bow at the same time I cut one of the kittys out. I used a black marker to color in the whiskers.
Step 3: Cut the oval perforated piece around the face out. I used a darker pink cardstock to cut a little round piece to place under the footprint. Don't forget to punch the little pieces out first.
Step 4: Peel the backing off the pink piece and adhere over the white. Oops, I forgot to cut the handpieces off the pink piece so the white hands would show through. Do this before you stick the pink down to the white.
Step 5: Turn the kitty over.
Step 6: Peel the backing off. It will be very sticky so try to be careful with it. I should of used lotion because my fingers look dry.
Step 7: Cut tiny little square pieces of black cardstock for the eyes and yellow for the nose. Haha! Looks like a Hello Kitty dough boy.
Turn it over, add the yellow bow piece and put a gemstone on it. And you're done! I did cut the pink hand pieces off so the white hands would show through. I put it on this box that I used for the scallop envelope box tutorial.
Now because this is an extra one that I used to make this tutorial, I would like to give it away. The only thing is, I can't mail it because it will probably get crushed. So if you are willing to pick it up from the store, leave me a comment and I will pick a winner this weekend.
