Candy Holder

I found this idea from Lauren over at 40:31 Creations while doing a blog hop. The link to her post is HERE!

I done these kinda last minute, so I kept them pretty basic. (I didn't have any double sided Christmas paper either) Double sided paper would look better.. You could really dress them up a lot more if you wanted and had the time.

Basically you just score at 4 inches on every corner, every side then score once in the corner squares to make triangles. I punched holes in each point with my cropadile, put some ribbon through and tied a bow.

I put cookies and candies that we made inside. Really easy basket, that turns out cute!

Altered Paint Can

This is my first altered Paint Can. I made this one for my cousin Shelby. I put her Christmas gifts inside. I used my expression to cut out the circle for the lid. Added some ribbon to the handle and mod podged the paper on to the can. Really simple and cute :)

Christmas Tree

So most everyone is done posting Christmas things and have moved on but not me, I still have a few more..

I made Christmas trees using the Tags, Bags, Boxes and more cartridge, filled them with M&M's. I used plastic from some packaging for the window.

Dog Bone Ornament

I got this idea while doing a blog hop recently. The Scrapbooking Queen had made some ornaments for her fur babies and I loved the idea. So, I made one too and plan to make more sometime! I ♥ my doggies!! This one is for my cousin Jessie and her dog Gus. She just bought herself a Cricut expression on black Friday and has a new blog  My Crafty Corner if you'd like to check it out :)

For the ornament I used the Paper Pups cartridge! I really love this cart :) When I was all done I mod podged it all.

Winter Wishes Door Hanger

I had a lot of fun with this project. I used the door hanger off of Tags Bags Boxes and more cartridge. (I should have "hid" the little slot, but I forgot.) The snowman and winter wishes are from Jolly Holidays! I glittered the snowmans hat with MS glitter. Used glitter glue/paint for his nose and gift. I colored his eyes in with atyou Spica glitter pens. I used PLAID FolkArt Texture Paint for the falling snow, snow at the bottom and the edges of the snowman! Fun stuff :)

This is for the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blogs "Deck the Halls" Crawl. I am also linking it to the linking party at Passionately Artistic! And entering it in Gaby Abby Challenge

Happy Christmas Cards

A few of you visitng today may have already seen one of these cards {...Wink...}

:) These are my favorite cards I made this year. I used the Holly from Stretch your Imagination cartridge. Some I shadowed, some were outlined or both. I just played around with them. The Happy Holidays and Happy Christmas are stamps. I used some vintage looking lace and inked the edges of the card to give them more of a vintage look.

Thanks for stopping by! Merry Christmas Pin It

Banner and Cupcakes for Shutterfly

I was selected as a Host through House Party to host a Shutterfly house party. Yesterday was the "Shutterfly Making Spirits Brighter House Party" day! So, I made a banner and some cupcake signs to help decorate for the party. Shutterfly's colors are orange and white, so that's what I went with! I used George and Basic Shapes. If you haven't checked out Shutterfly, I highly recommend them. I store my pictures on their site, have created a sharing site for my family on there for free. I have ordered several photo books and prints through them and am very pleased with how they came out.

Halloween Goodie Bags

These were just a last minute idea with my son for his cousins. Ghost from Paperdoll dressup, Boo from Wild Card, played around with Martha Stewart drippy goo punch. Inked all the edges. Bag toppers are from a Halloween printable party kit that I won courtesy of Peas and Thank you's. (The kit is by Paper Glitter.)

Another hour or so it will be time to take my little guy Trick or Treating! Happy Halloween everyone :) Pin It

"Fall" Card

This is the first card or anything I have made with Everyday Paper Dolls cart, also Peachy Keen Stamps (I finally got a set :)). It's suppose to look like she is throwing the leaves in the air. It doesn't really show but I bent her arms out, so they stick out in front of her. The leaves were from a punch. Happy Fall! Pin It

October Cuts

These cuts were made for me from my October Cut RAK wishes over at the Cricut Message board under RAK'S & Swaps. You can post 5 wishes each month and somebody with that cart will cut and send them to you. That way you can get cuts from carts you don't have. And in return you grant someone else's wishes if you can. This is 2 of my 5 wishes. Dreamer633 made me the paper pups cuts and CraftyMomma made the Halloween ones from Happy Hauntings. Thank you ladies :)

Anyways if you have never done this before you should head over and check it out. ( This is my first time doing it) Great way to get some cuts and share some cuts :) Pin It

Altered journal jar and notebook

Today is 10-10-10

I made this for one of my favorite teenage cousins :) She requested one awhile back, after I made the one's for Mother's Day.

I used an old plastic peanut container for the journal strips and then altered the notebook to match it. Hope she likes it. There are tons of questions in there for her to journal about, things she can look back and read later in life.

I am entering this in " Alter it"  at The One Stop Crafting Challenge Blog

We used 3 1/2 milk jugs, some wire and crop a dile and eyelets. My husband done the cutting :)

 This is a suitcase I made using a tutorial from the wonderful Leslie at Divine Designs. As soon as I seen her tutorial I started mine and she since has made a challenge. Suitcase Challenge. here is the link to her Tutorial.

Mine comes no where close to as beautiful as hers, but she did inspire me to give it a try. I just used what supplies I had.  Sanded some of the edges. Inked, etc. Not perfect but here is what mine looks like :)

"Thanks" Cards

So I haven't posted anything in so long. I had been playing around with digi scrapbooking for part of the time and I have been trying to create things but just not having much luck. I have several things started and just can not find any crafty mojo to decorate and finish the stuff... 

I did make another Birthday Altered 2-Liter, this time for my niece's 8th birthday. But wouldn't you know, just my luck, I forgot to get a picture of it. I even had it sitting around for a couple weeks before I gave it to her. And it turned out really cute, maybe I will make up another one similar to it.

Part of my lack of posting is my motherboard went out in my regular computer and I was using our old slow one. Not fun. It loaded pages worst than dial up at times. 

Anyhow here are some cards I made recently. I am not a very good card maker, but these turned out okay. I used the wild card cartridge.
