Birdie Paper Pad..with Create A Critter & Glimmer Mist

Hello all! Here I am again using my new favorite cartridge!!

Create A Critter

This note pad was made using a paper pad I bought at the Dollar Tree. There were like 5 cardboard insert seperating the notepad. I took a stack of the notepad in between 2 layers of cardboard and ripped it off the pad (I hope this make sense..its hard to explain in writing..I need to do some videos!) Anyway after tearing it off the pad I had another smaller notepad that had a cardboard cover and back.

I cut "Tweet" from create a critter using vinyl..adhere that to cover and I sprayed with Glimmer Mist to cover area. Remove vinyl. Next I cut my bird from Create A Critter and adhere to cover..add ribbon..and you have a nice little gift!

If you have any questions on this or would like to see a picture of the notepad I used just leave a comment and I will get bak with you!

Mini Album!

Hello!  I hope this finds you all having a fantabulous Monday!  The sun is shining here in PA and it's the perfect temp, too!  : )   Since Kristi has been after me to post something... here goes....

This mini was created using old CD's.....  that were damaged and/or non-useable in some way.....  they make a great surface for covering and altering!  To cut the straight edge on the CD's I use a pair of tin-snips that I have had forever!  I made a "pattern" for this so I don't have to keep measuring each CD!  LOL 

Once each CD is covered, I use my BIA to set the holes for the binding wire....  but I don't bind the mini until I'm done decorating each "page" unless I have a really bulky item like the flower on the front page...  that had to be the last thing attached to the album!  

"faith" is cut from the Home Accents cart
flower is made using 3 flower cuts from George cart
stars were cut from George also

One for the boys!

Everyone is always talking about wanting more boy theme cartridges and when you think about it you dont see alot of boyish things made.....I have to admit girly stuff is so fun to make!
But I felt a little guilty! LOL So here is my project for the boys! A cute little favor for a birthday party!


Sweet Treats Cartridge
Paper (paper was bought at Hobby Lobby)
Pop Dots
Glue Dots

On page 54 of the sweet treats cartridge I cut the cupcake holder using fit to page cut two at 5 1/2. Assemble boxes.
Next on page 53 I cut the scallop at 2" and then 3 scallops at 1 1/2 on the shadow feature.
Ink edges.
Cut a strip of paper 1 x 8 and adhere to inside of box.
I cut vehicles from the paper and adhered them to the 1 1/2 scallop. Using a glue dot I placed the scallops on a pixie stick and placed them in the box...I did use a mini glue dot to hold the pixie sticks up (placed on back of handle).
Fill box with more candy and you have the perfect treat!

Belated Birthday card

I am such a slacker!!! Shame on me!

Ok ok... I have however been crafting my butt off and I do have some items in store for ya =)

I came across these cute digi stamps over at Bugaboo stamps. Oooo I love them all!
I printed them on my computer and colored them in with my copics.
The flowers are made by K & Company too

Kristi inspired me with her last give away... so I had to dig out my Berry Sweet paper and do something with them instead of hoarding them. Im gonna end up on that show Hoarders from all the stuff I keep!

I simply printed a saying on my computer as well.
The one I used goes with the fact she has a sucker in her hand. I used Diamond Glaze on it to make it shiny.

Have a great night! I hope you are able to enjoy the weather like Im gonna do tomorrow!
