Day 530

A childhood friend was recently diagnosed with stage 4 liver and colorectal cancer. In order to raise funds I put this name tile on Facebook and offered them for $10 to the first 25 people with all of the money going to the friend. In less than 24 hours they were sold out. I have about half of them done. It would be a great fundraiser for anyone but I would suggest charging more. They are a fair amount of work, between the weeding and getting it on to the tile.

Day 529

My daughter and I finished my granddaughter's second Birthday invites. The outside is a My Scrap Chick Jilly Bean file, it is about half textured paper and half vinyl. The inside was done with a pen on the KNK. I used a regular ball point pen.

Day 528


I may be addicted to My Scrap Chick files. :O)  These files are the new baby animal treat boxes. I didn't want to make them into treat boxes but thought they would be cute for cards or for scrapbook pages. They are all made from Coredinations textured paper and the eyes are vinyl. They are simple to make and so cute.

Day 527

This card was made from a My Scrap Chick shaped card file. The pink is patterned cardstock, the top is coredinations cardstock embossed with the Cuttlebug divine swirl folder and then sanded. And the heart is also embossed and sanded. The entire thing was cut on my Klic-n-kut.

The red is vinyl, the white and blck textured paper. 
Simple but says it all. :O)

Day 525

This was made with what I call the Cuttlebug snowdot folder. Why they don't put names on the folders is beyond me. The Happy Birthday is a digital stamp and the scallop was cut on my Klic n kut. When I first got my KNK and then the scallop file I cut enough scallops to last a life time. :O)

Day 524

This card was made using a Cuttlebug embossing folder. I used Stickles on the snowflakes and red on the cardinal. Such a simple winter card!

Day 523

I had bought some Quickutz adhesive metal 4x12 sheets a while back and never used them. They were fairly inexpensive, a pack with 12 sheets for 2.99. I used a cuttlebug embossing folder and it was such a crisp emboss on the metal. A simple but cool card for a guy!

Day 522


Happy Valentines Day! My great nephew Quinn turned 3 yesterday, I should have done this post yesterday and yesterdays valentine treats today. :O)
Anyhow, Quinn is having a Birthday Party  next weekend and I volunteered to do treat bags. He loves dinosaurs and volcanos. Here are two of the bags. The cutting files are from Teddys Treasures and cut on my Klic-n-kut.

Day 521


I think every scrapbooker/cardmaker has done the nugget wraps before, a simple 1x3 piece of paper wrapped around the Hersheys nugget. I found the purse on a site which I now can't remember, but thought it was cute. It is a 4.5 x 1.5 piece of cardstock scored at 1 3/16, 2 3/16, 3 1/2, 3 3/4. A 5 inch piece of ribbon is the handle. The little hearts are cut from vinyl.

Day 520

This is another file where I saw the card and the person who made it used punches. I decided to make a KNK file which saved buying another half dozen punches. The cupcake holders were embossed with my Cuttlebug, the hearts are vinyl, everything else is paper.

Day 519

 I had originally made this owl for a wall decal. I fell in love with him and decided to make it smaller and use it on cards. It is all vinyl cut and layered. The sweet thing is that because it is on textured paper you can carefully peel it off and use it as a wall decal. :O)

Day 518

I don't remember where I got the file for this scroll heart. It was cut from vinyl and layered.

Day 516

My son in laws sister is getting married and so I made some wedding cards for the big day. The hearts were cut on my Klic n Kut. The bottom was done with a  Martha Stewart Valentine punch, and the names were cut from copper vinyl.

Day 515

With the Green Bay Packers in the Superbowl this card came in handy for the 3 male Birthdays I have this week. The silver is a holographic paper from Darice that I bought at Joanns. It was a 8.5x11 sheet & self adhesive. With the design it was easy to splice so there was no wasted paper. Go Pack Go!

Day 514

This was a fun & simple baby card. The lettering is vinyl layered. If you buy the clear greenstar transfer tape it is so simple to layer vinyl.

Day 513

This was a My Scrap Chick card shape file...I think. :O) It was so cute in the picture and no matter what I did with it I wasn't real fond of it.

Day 512

Not sure where I got the file for this owl. It is cut from Coredinations paper and the eyes and letters are cut from vinyl. The perch is ribbon.

Day 511

I made this vinyl wall decal a few weeks ago and put it on Facebook as a give away. It was so much fun to make. It is about 13x13.

Day 510

Today is my Baby Sister's Birthday. Happy Birthday Becky! This card was made using a Jillibean file from My Scrap Chick. The hair and body is paper, the rest is vinyl. I did some adaptions to the file because I was using vinyl, but nothing major. The Happy Birthday is PC Dazzel Font cut from vinyl, the letters are just tiny but it worked great.
