Lollipop Flowers

I am just so addicted to making these! They are so simple to make..

All you need is the Sizzix Original Circle Die (the big red die with four circles)

Cut out your 4 circles. I sprayed with Glimmer Mist and crinkled. Let set for a minute. and unfold. Layer, add button or embellishement in center. I added stickles around the edges of 2 layers...thats it! Some cute lollipop flowers for your layouts, card or..the possiblilities are endless!!

Metal coloring oh my!

Hi! Another cloudy beachless day for me, sooo I'm gonna share this tid bit of info with ya'all'<- that there is mex-tex gone countree! lol
Ok anyway...I don't always like my charms to have that silvery color, I would like them to match my projects, but it would cost me an arm and a lecture from my Hubby if I went and bought all the metal stains I needed to match my enormous paper collection! Sooo, being that I own a Nail Salon (Salon Mistique convientlly located in beautiful Flor... oopps not a commercial huh?) lol needless to say I have tons of nail polish. Nail polish is inexpensive and comes in tons of colors! yay! (Stop me if you know about this already ok?) but here is what I do...

This sun face has some dark stain built into it.

After he is all dry, I apply GLOSSY ACCENTS (it seals the charm making it durable)... I love that stuff , I do truly believe they should sell it by the gallon!  and then I use the charm on my projects.  This little guy I used on one of my doodles "Fernando" you can see more detailed pictures of "Fernando" on my blog over at

here is a preview... the sun charm is around the neck, it matches perfectly!...too cute!

(Fernando will be a digi stamp as soon as I can figure out how to do instant download.)

Hope you can use this...THANKS for stopping by and 
God Bless...

Hello all I'm the newbie!

Hello! My name is Elsa and I am so excited to be part of this DT.  I just got the invite today from Chrissy...(Thanks girl).  I live in Florida, right by the Gulf (we are all worried about that dang spill right now, if you have never seen the beaches in Floirda your missing something truly beautiful and the oil can sure ruin this beautiful area!) I've been in Florida for 25 years now, original I'm from Texas but I love it here. I have two daughters, (Krystal and Brandi) and a 2 grandsons and 1 granddaughter. I don't sleep much, I am part Adams, so odds are most of my entries will be late at nght  :)~  I love love love Chocolate, hate frogs and love the sun.   I just read Greenbeans, profile and ummm was surprised that she hates chocolate! a first for me. lol

Anyway I don't have a project to share with you all today but I have a couple of sights to share that might help you all in the pocketbook.

For those of you who actually use your Cricut and have the SCAL software, you can get cool and FREE svg files!! They have lots and lots to chose from, and if you skip and hop over there and join their email list they will send you "the free svg of the day" straight to your email! Did I mention they were FREE?!? Go to

Here is one I just loved and have used it many times.
You can find this here:

And for those of you that use the Sizzix products, if you visit their webpage and subscribe to their email list, every Tuesday they will send you a code for up to 60% off on selected items. I purchased almost all my Hello Kitty dies for about $1.50 each!!! 
Visit them at

Well I will try to have a project for you all next time.
Thanks for visiting and check back soon!
