Good Wednesday...half way there day! :-)

If you actually know me personally, you would be VERY surprised that I even read the Twilight Series. I am usually very conservative with my reading and life really.

However, after much research last year, I decided to go ahead and read the books....hello one week later, my family wanted to know if the were ever getting dinner or conversation from me again! LOL Seriously, I read all 4 books in 6 days!!! I was hooked! Since then I had read the 5th "novella" as well. I have re-read these books many times. This is NOT a vampire is a story of Young Love and Sacrifice, even if it hurts, because you love someone. Sweet stuff I tell you! ;-)

So with that said, I have a large group of friends and I who go to the release of the movies at Midnight when they release.

We had a great time last night...I must say I was a little disappointed with how they left out VERY important things from the book, but the worse for me was how they changed around the sequence of events from the book, some of those things where just plain strange! They added a few things that never happened...but hey, if you have not read the book you would never know. I just think you lose a lot of the true story of this book by how they portrayed it! Maybe I should have directed this one!!! LOL ;-)

Anywho, here are the goodies I created for us all...I made cupcakes, candy boxes with "photos" and little brown bags with different movie sentiments on them...we met at Starbucks and had a little before party, then headed to the theater at 9:30, got our seats and had a super time before show time too.

All in all a great night!

Leave me some comments if you have seen the movie, read the books etc...I would like to hear your thoughts.

Happy Wednesday!

Good morning world! :-)

Hope today finds you having a crafty kinda day!

Today is a little banner piece I did for my best-friends daughter who went to Germany! She was gone for 21 days, as an exchange student....she had a great time, but we missed her much and she missed us too! (PS she is also my son's "best" friend ***WINK WINK***)

I created the banner using my cricut, then cut out the words with the story book cart!

Sophie, loves cupcakes, so I made her some, placed them in the "S" shape, and created the little tag from Clearly Dollar Stamps to finish it off! She loved it all, and we are grateful she is home!

Hope each of you have a blessed and happy Tuesday...I will cause I am going to see ECLIPSE today at midnight with all my besties! hehe I feel like a kid again when I say that! HA

Monday...Sending love...!

Happy Monday everyone!

Today is my last post as June's Guest Designer for CCS! I have so loved this...and I so love Laura and the design team for their kindness and amazing talent!

I hope today's card inspires you to try something a little different. I started out creating my base with SU card stock, I used Me and My Big Ideas, "Sanctuary" for the designer series papers. Of course the stamp is from CCS Sending love. The butterflies are the SU butterfly punch...Such a great stamp for those times when a card is needed.

I am glad to make the friends I have on this month's little stint....and hope to keep seeing you all!

You all have a blessed week and keep on craftin'!

SUPER way to use those SCRAPS!

Good Saturday Morning!

I have a really quick and easy tutorial today on how to use up your scraps, and make so cute gifties and party favors!

I made these binder clips a couple of years ago for our place cards at Thanksgiving, then everyone had one to take home with them (Of course it was not a HIPPO! ***laughs***) I actually made these for my sister's little girls, for a very small birthday party she is having for the 8 year old. But you can make anything with these!!! They are going to take digital pictures when the kids arrive with the birthday girl and print them, then place them on the table as place setting...then they can take them home with a bag of goodies!!!

The other is a simple clothes pin, cut your paper and embellish as you wish! I added a magnet strip (I always recycle my old ones...) to use on the makes a great added extra to a gift set, or your can make a whole set for someone!!!

Hope you enjoy go use up those scraps! (***wink***)

Here are the supplies I used today:
Redline tape
recycled magnet
clothes pin
scrap paper
Binder Clip (You can really use any size, but this one is medium size)
embellishments and bling!

It is very easy to do these, basically you trace around either the binder bottom or the clothes pin, cut it our, place your redline tape, peel backing, and place your embellishment or paper...and decorate! Fun stuff...FYI, the clothes pins make great CHIP clips too..(But less embellishments as they won't hold up well as a chip clip but very cute covered with paper! :-)

Good Monday Morning!

Good morning!

I hope each of you where able to celebrate Father's Day with the men in your life.

My project today is what I gave my brother for Father's day. :-) He really liked it! It was fun to create!

I made the little shirt with a tie card from a tutorial on SCS. It was a lot of fun! I used the Stick Alphabet from CCS, to stamp BROTHER. I so love this set! I used the Deer Hunting set to stamp DEER. I loved the way it turned out!

The other little piece is a template from "Papertrey Ink, by Lauren Meader", it is called "Let's do Lunch". This template is really easy and it turned out great for a little treat of peanut M&M's for him.

I once again used my Deer Hunting set to create the special little tags that say Private Property & Big Game Hunter, and of course the Deer Tracks all over it and he just thought it was super!

I hope this gives you a little inspiration to try something new and fun this week.

Have a great week!

Great Gift Tutorial - 2X2 Tiles

Good Saturday Morning!

I have created a little tutorial for you today. FUN STUFF!

These 2x2 tiles are great with matching recipe cards for recipe holders, I have also given them as gifts for picture holders with a picture I have taken, and they work super around the house as little note holders. FYI, they sold great when I took them to a craft fair around Christmas time, they make great Teacher or Sunday School gifts.

Hope you enjoy them as much as I have!

Tutorial for stamping on 2X2 Tiles
