When You Miss A Friend....

Hey there friends, it is Tuesday and now that Valentine's Day
is gone and winter is beginning to wind down it's been that time
to settle down and gear up for spring. 
I have missed a friend who has moved away recently so I thought
it was a wonderful time to make her a card.
I HAD to make it for my friend who has stood by me for so many
years and I miss. Of course when I get to making a card I automatically
reach for my Xyron Tape Runner and I thought this 
Carta Bella Giddy Up paper was a perfect fit for us. 
 I layered the sentiment that I stamped using the 
I used my Xyron Adhesive Dots, I stacked them up 2 dots high to add
a little dimension without making the card too bulky. 
 I also used the dots to adhere the button. (Blumenthal Lansing). 
I love the end result, yes it will probably take 2 stamps due to the button
but I don't care I had to have it! :) 
I am sending good wishes to my friends today and
telling everyone to stop your day, make a card, ship it off.
JUST BECAUSE it's a great day to send some love to someone special!

Happy Tuesday friends.

Art...Pinky Style That Is...

Hey there!
It's Monday and I am in my craft room but before I share my projects
from this week, I wanted to share a project I created a couple weeks ago. 
This canvas I altered. 
 For the canvas itself I spray painted it with Krylon Gold paint.
Then I painted over it using the Clear Scraps Spiral Dots mascil
with pink Krylon paint- I know it sounds like an odd combo but I love it. 
 Then I took some paper and my Xyron Adhesive Dots, and I created all
these flowers. They are Samantha Walker Cuts- with my Cameo.
(The butterflies too!).
 After that I glittered the Clear Scraps Frame, used my Xyron Teresa Collins
Adhesive Kit to adhere the glitter. 
Then I took my Connie Crystal strands and hot glued them on the canvas. 
For the word ART I used Maya Road Chipboard and I inked it with 
Clearsnap copper and Teal inks to make it look rusted. 
Then when I was completely done I misted the project lightly 
with gold and pink paints. 

I love it. It was fun to make and very therapuetic!
Happy Monday friends! :)

Love You...Mini

Hey there, 
Just when I think my crafty fun is over from the holidays and I feel like
I won't be inspired? I realize it is Valentine's Day and a whole new plethora
of inspiration punches me in the face! :) 
I was totally inspired last week to create the mini album using my
CutCardStock cardstock, Samantha Walker Cut Files, Clear Scraps Mini Album,
and of course the ever loved Xyron. 
I really wanted to show that you can make a mini album from
basically card stock and very little patterned paper and it can be INCREDIBLE!
I did use some leftover journaling cards but everything was card stock. 
And I made a STEP BY STEP tutorial on the CutCardStock blog
along with photos (of course). 
So please stop by and leave a comment or like it, and say hello
to my favorite cardstock company!

**Giveaway** Pocket Pink Cushion Tutorial!

Oh hello there, welcome to a SAH-WEET
 giveaway and blog hop...AND tutorial!

I am here today with this fun "Pocket Pin Cushion" that I created
and I want to share just  how I created this pin cushion so you can make your own. 
I also used some Button Lovers- buttons as accents. 
Here are the instructions just for you!
Trim out 2 pieces of Samantha Walker fabric in 4.5"X4.5" you could make this 
5" or smaller if you like but smaller would be more difficult to stitch. 
Fold both piece of fabric in half and cut at angle on the bottom as shown
to create the bottom of the pocket.
Trim out 1 2"X20" strip from coordinating striped fabric.
From coordinating houndstooth fabric cut 1- 2.5"X4.5" strip.
Fold bottom of houndstooth fabric over and stitch onto pocket as shown.
Neatly stitch coordinating strip all along top of pocket.
Follow same stitching on the bottom except leave a 2-3" hole to
turn right way and stuff. I highly suggest you take a moment to
think about which way fabric will sit before stitching as I
stitched mine the wrong way and had to tear open and restitch! LOL
Flip pocket the right way through the hole.
Stuff, and stitch hop closed.
Hand sew on buttons or anything else super fun and VIOLA!
Pocket pink cushion, perfect for that seamstress in your life.
OR you could even fill it with perfume or oils for a scent bag
in a drawer.
Now for the good stuff!
