Hello friends! Today I am so excited because I am hopping along with rest of The Rubber Cafe' design team. We have some fun creative packaging ideas using supplies from recent Creative Cafe' Kits that will be great for the upcoming holidays! Here is my project for today's blog hop..... I really love this little box! To make this box, I used the Tent Gift Bag Keepsake Die set from Tonic Studios. This was so quick and easy to make because the die contains everything you need including the a little die that will cut the holes for your ribbon!! I also used some papers and stamps from the October Creative Cafe' Kit - Christmas Behind The Scenes. I added some red stickles and tied some green twine into a ribbon and its done. I think these little boxes would be perfect for a place setting at our annual family... Continue reading

Hello friends! It's Wednesday again so that means it is time for a Heartfelt Creations project. Today I have three cards to share with you that I created using the Celebreate the Journey Collection paper pad. One of the best things about the beautiful papers that Heartfelt Creations designs is that they are full of card fronts that make creating super fun and easy! Here are my cards! I created these cards using this sheet of cards fronts from the Celebrate The Journey Paper Collection..... Here is my first two cards. These are pretty simples cards that I created using the above cards fronts plus some sentiments from another sheet included in the collection. Here is the page I used for the sentiments.... For my last card, I did get alittle more fancy! I used the Sun Kissed Fleur stamp and dies to create my flowers plus I die cut... Continue reading

Hello friends! Today I want to share with you a scrapbook layout I created using up some of stash! Yes, I created something just for me! I used some mixed media techniques and lots of embellishments! I added some textured paste using a Prima Stencil then I spritzed with some color mists. After all that dried I started having fun filling my page with lots of embellishments! I don't usually purchase pre-made flowers but when I do, I usually buy white or off-white flowers so that I can spritz them or ink them any color that I want. Here are a few close-ups! I am going to look for a frame so that I can hang this in my bedroom. I really love how this turned out! Thanks for stopping by today! Continue reading

Hello Friends! Today I want to share with you a cute treat basket I made using the November Creative Cafe Kit - Now We're Cookin' from The Rubber Cafe'. I used the Sizzix die - Berry Basket to create this basket. This die comes with the scalloped edge and the front labels and tags. After die cutting them, all I had to do was stamp! You could use blueberry or strawberry containers directly from the grocery store as your basket base. I created a small tag to tie at the top to identify my gift! I wrapped up some Oatmeal Cookies (baked with love) and tied some yellow seam binding to hold it all together. This was a cute and easy project plus I think it would be great to make a bunch of these as a place setting at our Thanksgiving dinner. What do you think? Thanks for stopping... Continue reading

Hello Friends! Hope you are staying warm! I can't believe the change in the weather here in Missouri. Yesterday it was 70 degrees and this morning it is 45 degrees and the temp is still falling.

Hello Friends! Today I have a scrapbook page to share with you. A few weeks ago, I purchased a mixed media scrapbooking kit from The Scrapbook Diaries. You can see the kit and the layout HERE. I sat down to create my layout and used the supplies and instructions as a guide and changed things up a bit but I didn't get too crazy! LOL I added some cool die cut elements to my page. I recently found out that Tonic Studios makes dies...did you know that? I have a Tonic paper cutter, Tonic scissors, Tonic edge distresser, etc. but I sure didn't know they made dies, too! Here is my layout so you can check out these awesome die cuts! Up in the right-hand corner is one of the Tonic Studios die cuts! Plus there is another one under the hearts! I just love the detail and they cut... Continue reading

Hello Friends! This is my last week as the October Guest Designer for Our Daily Bread Designs. I have had alot of fun creating with the beautiful stamps, dies and paper that Our Daily Bread Designs sent me and want to say a special thank you to Kelley and Lisa for having me as a guest designer. For my last project, I created a scrapbook layout of two of my daughters. I wanted to show off the beautiful doily stamp and die plus show that you can still scrapbook even if the patterned papers are small! To start I found some coordinating 12 x 12 cardstock in my stash that matched the color scheme of the Soulful Stitches 6x6 paper pad. I cut about 3/4" off of 2 sides of a piece of 12 x 12" ivory cardstock. Then I distressed the edges and sponged some Tattered Rose distress ink.... Continue reading

Hello Friends! This is my third post as guest designer for Our Daily Bread Designs. This week, I have a fun tag that I made using some more of the products from the September release! To create this tag, I used the Ranger #8 manila craft tags for the base. I adhered the 2 different papers from the Soulful Stitches 6x6 paper Collection to my tag base and sponged Tattered Rose distress ink along the edges plus I used my distress edger. I stamped a portion of the doily blessings stamp on the upper right portion of the tag. I sprinkled on white detail embossing powder and heat set. I added a small triangle of paper in the middle of my embossed doily. I die cut the doily and sponged the edges and added it to my tag. Using supplies from my stash, I created the tape measure ribbon bow... Continue reading

Hello Friends! Hope you had a great week! Now its time to enjoy the weekend. Maybe you will be crafting this weekend? I don't know if I will or not because it finally stopped raining. It rained for 8 days straight and now I can actually see the sun! Today I would like to share with you a Flower Mini Album that I created using a scrapbook kit from The Scrapbook Diaries. One of the things I love to do is see what other designers are creating by watching videos on YouTube. Well I stumbled across a new favorite blogger/designer, Gabrielle Pollaco, a couple of months ago. I love her style and she designed a beautiful scrapbooking layout kit for The Scrapbook Diaries. I purchased it and adapted it to make an 8x8" mini album for my daughter. One thing I have found is that purchasing a kit is a... Continue reading

Hello friends! It's my second post as a Guest Designer for Our Daily Bread Designs. I have been having so much fun creating my projects using their products! This week I have a more simple card using distress ink to highlight the wonderful Doily die. This card measures 4 1/4 x 5 1/2". I used some base weight ivory cardstock for the base of this card. I cut some of the Soulful Stitches patterned paper to 4 x 5 1/4" and the I cut the ivory layer to 3 3/4 x 5". I die cut the doily from the same ivory cardstock. Using a sponge, I applied some Victorian Velvet Distress Ink onto this layer in a circle that was slightly larger than the doily. Then I adhered the doily over my inked circle. I cut the doily to fit onto this layer. I tied some seam binding around the... Continue reading

Yesterday was World Cardmaking Day! Did you get to participate in some of the challenges that were happening all over the internet? Or maybe you walked into your craft room to make something and almost screamed out loud because your desk was so messy? I actually did both! First I had to straighten up my desk and re-arrange my ribbon drawer. I tell you that I did actually scream out loud but not to loud because I didn't want to scare my family. I will show you what my ribbon drawer looked like AFTER I cleaned it....... After making my ribbon look all pretty, I got some of my Classic Sunflower Paper Collection from Heartfelt Creations and got busy making some cards! Here is what I started with...... This isn't something I purchase very often but I was lucky enough to find this packet of 8 - 5x7" Kraft cards... Continue reading
