9/23 Time Off!

Hey Everyone,
Just popping in to let you know that I am taking the rest of the month off from blogging!  I am extremely burnt out!  I am still crafting up a storm but I need a break from the blog world for awhile. Just way too many things going on and I don't have any time to sit in front of the computer.  Crafting is still VERY important to me and I have tons of new stuff to show off in October!  I may pop in to let you know of fun things happening over at Some Odd Girl!

So I will see you in October!  Have a great end to September!  Have a wonderful and crafty day!

Sept 17 SOG Teacher Gift Box Inspiration

Happy Wednesday!

I am here today to bring you a cute and fun idea for teacher or someone special.  It is the cutest little gift box that is just perfect for small gifts.

I used a Silhouette cut file to make the box using some Core'dinations cardstock.  I then cut the front and side panels using the Sunshine Sorbet paper from Some Odd Girl.  I used the awesome woodgrain pattern paper.  I then used some Some Odd Girl stamps to decorate the front of the box (Fruit Salad & Teacher Mae ).  I colored my apple using my Spectrum Noir markers.  Finally I added some yummy twine and attached the cute little tag.

Here is a quick video on how this came together. 


Thanks so much for joining me today.  I will be back soon with a new project.  See  you soon. Have a wonderful and crafty day.

Sept. 16 SOG Puppy Love

Happy Tuesday!

Tuesday means it is time for the new digi release from Some Odd Girl and today I have THE cutest little puppy EVER! 

For my card I used a shape form my Silhouette library and turned it into a card.  I then colored my little puppy with my spectrum noir markers and cut him out and pop dotted him onto the card.  Next I used a Some Odd Girl clear stamp and pop dotted it on as well. 

Here is a video I made showing how this card came about.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I will be back tomorrow with a fun project using Some Odd Girl!  See you then.  Have a wonderful and crafty day!

Happy Monday.

I am popping in really quickly to share this layout I made for Core'dinations.  My oldest decided to play baseball 2 years ago and I needed to scrap a layout and I decided on the grid look for the layout.  Here is what I came up with.

Here is a quick video on some of the Core techniques that I used.
