Paint Chip Christmas Card

Thanks to my local hardware store this card came about. I got Baer paint chips in bright green and pink. I used fun colors like bubblegum, Kiwi and Chocolate cardstock. I hand stitched the trees with wax linen and added some bling. Stuck my little reindeers head out from behind a tree, just saying "Hi"

No, There is NO Pizza in the Box...

No pizza, but there is a little album. This is an altered Small PIZZA BOX. You can get the pizza box from just4funcrafts. I covered it with paper and embellishments. This is a quick project. the mini album took a bit longer. The album is made from chipboard. This is perfect for storing your favorite photos on a coffee table, or remove the album and fill it with a gift. How about making the top into a see through window or shaker box. The possibilities are endless.

Created, with My Friend in Mind...

I Miss You A'Latte

I think of my long distance friends all the time, but we don't call, we don't write, I still have last years Christmas cards I made for them sitting here. HOW SAD IS THAT? But, you know what? Its okay, because we are friends! We know that we will always be there for each other when the other needs...its just not "needed" yet. To all my friends I love and miss you and you are always on my mind. Thank you for your friendship though all these years and thank you for just being there! Carol Ann, I know you don't Blog...but this is for you...I really Miss You A'Latte!! You will always be my friend.

I challenge you today to remember an long time friend, and send them a card letting them know how much you care!

Olivia's Ladder

I made this "Jacobs Ladder" for my niece Olivia. I used COASTERS for the base of the project. The paper is from CTMH. I put tags with sentiments and photos of our time together. Wouldn't a gift like this be perfect for the holidays?

I really HAVE been busy!! ...Promise....

I have been feverishly working on a gift for my friends at CREATIVE IMPRESSIONS, but couldn't share until they received the gift. Well the time has come, and now I can post. The pail, micro brads, mini brads, and biggie brads and ribbon can be purchased though our site. If we don't currently show it in stock we can special order it for you. Feel free to email us with questions to I decorated the pail and drilled holes in the bottom of the pail to insert tiny battery operated Xmas lights that light up. I filled it with chunky glitter "snow" and a mini Lenox Christmas tree. The flower on the top was handmade out of the red vellum that is on sale through Just4funcrafts. I also used a felt flower from the New line of felt flowers made by Creative Impressions. Just4funcrafts will be carrying them shortly. I hung small spiral clips from fishing line under the lid to look like snow flakes. This was a fun project to make. There are so many other things you can do with the pails...a Valentines day scene...a Halloween scene...birthday scene....the ideas are endless. Just get out your pail and play!

A Day To Create

I was very thrilled to be apart of my friends, Jane and Elaine's, play date. We spend a full day sitting in the sun and doing whatever project we wanted to do. As I have been too busy with life to come up with a complex project, I decided to take the essentials (cutter, adhesive, some punches, ink, stamps and paper) and see what my little brain could come up with. I created 3 cards when i wasn't busy chatting, eating and laughing. These cards were inspired from a blog I recently found. This lady creates cards (on a daily basis) that I could not even compare to. Go check out the cards on this BLOG. Thank you Faith for the inspiration. While making these cards I was thinking about my friend Lois who is an expert on card making. It has been years since I made cards. I cant wait to do more. Lois...come over and play! Stamps were Technique Tuesday, Paper is CTMH pattern paper, and Cardstock is made by PRISM and can be found ON SALE at
