~Last Day For Christmas Crafts & WINNERS!~

Good morning my crafty friends,

Normally I don't make Christmas decor but this time I decided to make
a small box with a "scene" in it for decor. This is what I came up with.
I am hoping to put it on my Christmas shelf come December~
I really have enjoyed playing with the Santa's Little Helper line
from Imaginisce even if it is July!!!
I hope you enjoyed my projects~

Hey if you get a chance head over to the Clear Scraps blog today,
I made a special video and there is a GIVEAWAY for the
Clear Scraps album I used for the Count Down To Christmas
dry erase board I posted yesterday!

Ok on to this week's winners

~More Christmas Crafting~

Good morning my crafty friends~

More Imaginisce Santa's Little Helper projects~
I know I made the dry erase board a while ago and did a video tutorial,
but I thought they would make awesome Christmas gifts! So I made another one.

This one is for my boys to count down to Christmas.
Just think of all the Christmas gifts you could make just one
Clear Scraps Scalloped Mini Album, 5 gifts in each one.
I added the glam rocks for a fun touch.
And went around the edges with green stickles.
I am off to pick all the corn today to feed to the chickens, we officially
harvested 6 ears to eat LOL The rest was lost to the ants, so the chickens will
be EXTRA HAPPY today~

~Brand NEW Release Projects!!~

Good morning my amazingly talented crafty friends!

I am very excited about the new Santa's Little Helper Release
from Imaginisce, it is featured all week on the Imaginisce blog!

I have been waiting to share my projects with you all!!!!!! :)

I am always trying to think outside of the box on the crafts I create
with paper and scrapbooking supplies. With this adorable line it totally
inspired me to make a Christmas Stocking Stuffer, a set of earrings!
These penguins made the perfect earring in my humble opinion.
And the die cut made the perfect card for a stocking!
I used my i-rock to bling it up and I just love them!
What do you think?? Fun right?? And completely made from PAPER! :)

You know they always have giveaways with the new releases, so
be sure to hit up the Imaginisce blog.
If you stop by from me PLEASE tell them I sent ya!
Let them know what you think of my stocking stuffer project,
I always want the special companies I work for to know I am doing my very best!

Happy Wednesday, thanks for popping by~

~Sharing My Clear Scraps/Imaginisce Scrap Class GIVEAWAY!~

Good morning my friends,

I am so blessed with an amazing and I do mean AMAZING local
scrapbook store called The Scrap Room.
I have been in many shops and never had the warm reception
like this shop and they encourage local teaching including me!

Yesterday I was in Mt. Juliet, Tn. teaching a Clear Scraps/ Imaginisce class
and I had some special students. I love it when young people get into crafting
and I had to share the adorable picture they sent me.
(Don't worry mom gave permission to make them famous!) hehe
We made those cute little head bands and they made them in school colors
to wear to the first day of school next week!
We also made the little hair clip Badge/Pin combo with similar flowers.

It was such a fun class and they loved embossing/heating up the acrylic to
make these fun flowers! Imaginisce was an amazing sponsor to the class!

What a blessed day it was! :) Thanks to the Scrap Room as well,
if you are ever in Middle TN it is worth stopping by and saying hello,
not only is it Jenni Bowlin's home store but it is MY home store too!
That says alot about a great local store!

If you would like to win a KIT to this class please leave a comment
and on Friday I will post a WINNER! This kit includes the Clear Scraps
pre-punched/embossed flowers, Imaginisce badge/pin combo and headband.

Happy Monday~

~Crafty Emergencies~

Good morning my friends! :)
I have to laugh because 3 years ago I would have
never known there was such a thing as a "crafty emergency".

As I create more and more I have found out...there in fact is
SEVERAL crafty emergencies! hahaha

I spent 23 hours this weekend on such said "emergency".

This was pre-product sample...
and this was the end result....
Times like 10 THOUSAND! LOL Ok it wasn't 10K but it felt like
it after about 6 hours and it felt like 2 millions after 23 hours LOL
I have glue all over my table and did I mention I had 4 friends helping me?
And I recruited 2 very sweet boys of mine...

I feel pretty cookoo posting this post because I am so loopy
from making these paper pine please don't ask for a
tutorial or anything for about a week!

Come back after the shock of punching and brown card stock has
worn off my skin! LOL I think I have Dr. Peppered and punched myself
into a crazy crafty zombie zone.....

Did you know after you make hundreds of these it gets really
hard to pinch your fingers?? heeeeeee....
Can't craft, mah hands hurt!!! hehehe

Have a wonderful Sunday, I am going to sleep in then head
to Mt. Juliet for my class today!

Thanks to my girls for helping, and thanks to Fed Ex
for closing 10 minutes BEFORE I was done LOL
I will be headed to Fed Ex at 8am Monday :) ~

~Friday Card Making~

Good morning!!

I was able to sit down and craft yesterday, it felt so good!
Today I have a bunch of girlfriends coming over to help me with
an extra large project, I am making projects for every Archivers store.
It's going to be a great day! :)

This card I made using the McGill punches to create the Hydrangea,
and I also used Pink By Design Stamps!
Pink By Design was so cool to send me a few samples to try out
and you know I have been TRYING to stamp more, so I asked them
for this chicken wire stamps because quite frankly...I LOVE IT! haha

I wanted it to look like the flowers were hanging onto the wire background.
I also used their Hang In There sentiment stamp. I love her sentiment stamps,
they pretty much cover everything! :) I will have to see about doing a
Pink By Design Stamp Giveaway~~ What do you think?? :)

I guess that's it, if I am going to make more cards I better start stamping too!
Have a wonderful friday, Hugs from me to you!

They have the new Cricut Craft Room for your computer
The new Cricut Mini that goes hand in hand with the Craft Room
And of course the Cricut Expression 2! :)
I wish I was at CHA to see all these beauties!!!!

I have a new layout to share also....
It will be up for sale on the 1st unless you have a sub.
Then it will be up in a couple days! :)
I hand picked the papers and embellishments and made it a little
cheaper for those of us on a budget, but it still is a fun kit!

I will have more to share tomorrow, I am off to cool down a bit

Have a great day♡♡

~Winner & New Clear Scraps Cards/Products!~

Good morning my friends~

Don't you hate it when you are in the middle of creating and
your end product does not make you happy??

I almost did not post these cards because I was not 100% happy with
them (not at all) but then I thought..."Hey everyone
has crafts they are not in love with, it happens just share it!"
But the cool thing about these cards are the fun new products
from Clear Scraps on the cards!!!!! See this MINI banner??
I love it so much! You can ink then, emboss them, whatever.
And on this card the new Butterflies from the Clear Scraps
line called Clearly Accent Embellishments~
I embossed this one in my Cuttlebug with embossing folders,
then I inked it up! :)
Ok so they are not the best cards int he world but I will still give them
to a special someone :) They are made with love~

On to the winner of the Annie's Attic Cricut Magazine
#1 WON

~Cricut Magazine Work~

Good morning my crafty friends!!

You know I design for the Cricut Circle magazine and today I thought I
would share one of my projects (just a sample of the many I do monthly)
that are published in the magazine.
It is so cool designing for the magazine and playing with the tools.
This was in the May issue I believe and it is 100% printed with the
Cricut Imagine! I love that sweet machine. The flowers were all
cut from paper I printed from the JT cartridge on the Imagine.
I wanted to make a very rustic "manly" looking layout,
BUT use flowers! hehehe
I love the chicken wire back ground, did you know that
Pink By Design makes a chicken wire stamp? I have it right here
and am working on a new project with it!

I have a huge project going on that you might just
be able to see in August in your local Archivers!!!!
So stay tuned and be sure to check out your stores after I post!
Happy Monday everyone, have a beautiful day~
