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.

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.

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.

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)

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!

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.

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.

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.

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)

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!

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.
