Just for you

I was at the store about a month ago and found some clear acetate paper and thought about making something with it using the Eclips machine. I chose this top handle bag style since I knew that there was only one side that needed to be taped to assemble the bag. I was surprised that the Ghirardelli chocolate squares fit perfect in it. I used the hedgehog stamp from Dandelion Designs "hello" set. Oops, I kind of smeared the glitter glue on the flower.
The little white tag is a Martha Stewart punch and the lace border is also a Martha Stewart punch.
Lately, I've been feeling a little uncomfortable where we live. We have a shoe thief that has been stealing our shoes. It's a creepy feeling knowing that it is someone in our neighborhood that is watching us to see when we leave the house. So, we had to put all our everyday shoes and slippers inside the house to stop this thief from stealing them.
Well, I have a bunch of cards to make this weekend and I hope I can finish them and also post them.
Thanks for stopping by and leaving your sweet comments! Have a great evening!!!

Wishing you oceans of joy

It's been over a week that I actually sat down to make something crafty and feeling much better since catching a nasty cold. I found this Lala Land stamp called "Beach Marci" in the store last week and had to have it. She's so cute in her swimsuit. I used a Fiskars border punch for the edge of the orange cardstock. And the stamped words are a clear set from Hero Arts called oceans of joy.
Lately I've been feeling kind of lazy and not really in the crafting mood. So today I attempted to rearrange my craft area hoping that would motivate me to make something. I did find things that I forgot I even had. Some of them are so old that they ended up in the trash.
Well, thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful evening!!!

Kiyomi treat bag

Happy 4th of July!!! It felt so good to get out of the house today after being sick in bed for several days. We went outlet shopping, the malls, Ross's and all I can say is my husband is out of control! Lol!
Here's a treat bag that I made using one of the new stamps, that was just released on July 1st from a new company called Sister Stamps from the Big Island. This one is called Kiyomi. I put her on a treat bag that is made from a Hero Arts envelope. We made this same treat bag last year for Halloween for a make & take at J's.
I stamped the envelope background with a Hero Arts stamp set called Sweet Threads Labels in pink Memento ink. The top of the bag is closed with a miniature clothespin from 7 Gypsies. I put Kiyomi's butterfly on top of the clothespin. The punched border is a Martha Stewart punch.
Sorry if the picture is dark but I've been having problems taking photos in my kitchen because the light doesn't work. So I've been using flash, which leaves a shadow in the background.
Hope you're all having a really great 4th of July weekend and spending it with your families! Thanks for stopping by today and have a great evening!!!
