Ronald McDonald House . . .

It's that time of the year again. . . . Time where we make crafty things and donate them to our local Ronald McDonald house for the families that are staying there during the holiday season.

This year I was inspired by the book, Twilight. I'm a major Twilight freak right now, so I thought these little vampire boxes were appropriate :D

I left the gummy lips in their plastic so that they can be ripped off and eaten (and they sure are yummy)! The back of the vampire is an origami box (directions from SCS) and it is perfect size for a YUMMY popcorn ball! Eyes and nose, various SU punches. I can not take credit for the idea. I cased it from the Sept. 24, 2009 post found here .

Have a great night! xoxoxo

Christmas Stamp a Stack #1

My Blog . . . I have been debating whether to break up with my blog or not. I spend SOOOO much time reading and enjoying other people's blogs that I get lazy when it comes to my own. I finally decided (with some nudging from my twitter friends) to give blogging one more try . . . so here we go . . .
This last Saturday I hosted a Christmas Stamp a Stack class. This is the first of two classes. Here are just some of the cards we worked on that day. We had a blast!!!

PLEASE NOTE: my camera, picture taking skills has not changed, they still suck! :D heehee! I'm working on improving that too! Please visit me again tommorow for some more card fun!

Welcome to the First Annual Bacon Blog

Good Morning and welcome to the First Annual Bacon Blog. How did this Bacon Blog come about you ask? Well, it all started on Twitter. A group of friends with the love of bacon (and other things) started talking and talking and waala! The First Annual Bacon Blog was born.
Have you ever tried Chocolate Covered Bacon? Just recently the County Fair was in town and they were serving . . .

Unfortunately, taking this picture was the closest I could come to eating chocolate covered bacon! YUCK!

In honor of bacon, here is my card for today . . .

Please hop on over to Dreena Guptil's blog for your next stop, and if you want to go to the top of the hop, start with Leslie at Crooked Stamper!

Happy Bacon Trails!

Hello Kitty Cute Box . . .

Hello Everybody!!! Today's project is a box that I learned how to make by reading Joy's blog. Her blog is AWESOME and has great ideas and tutorials :)

The Hello Kitty's on the belly band were made by Sizzix, and the punches used were by Marvy Uchida.
Today I took a class given by Lydia from Understand Blue, you can see her blog on my sidebar. This webinar was great and she taught me how to give my blog a face lift! I will be working on that this weekend :)

Hello Kitty Bookmarks . . .

One of the AWESOME benefits about being a demonstrator for Stampin Up, is that once a month we are sent a mini magazine called, Stampin Success. In there are great tips and inspirational stories to get us motivated. In July's issue they showed how to make these great and easy bookmarkers!!! I LOVE TO READ and I have a lot of friends that love to read also, so these are lil gifts for co-workers :)
The Hello Kitty is by Sizzix. To make this cute and easy bookmark cut a cardstock 5x5". Fold your square in half horizontally and once vertically so that you have 4 squares. Cut away one corner square. Fold the two remaining "arms" down and glue! Decorate as you wish!!! Just remember these are corner bookmarkers so when you go to decorate, decorate on the right side :) If anyone is interested in joining my Stampin Up team, please contact me, there is a special on the starter kit coming up July 15th!!!
Have a great night!

My 10 minute card . . .

Hope everybody had a great 4th of July holiday!
Today I needed a card for a dear friend and I only had 10 minutes to get it ready. So here it is. A little on the plain side, but I likie!!! The stamp set is called Love Your Face by Daisy Bucket Designs.
When it was time to color my lil monster, I was inspired by a few blogs to color it whatever color I WANTED. So instead of traditional grey for a monster, I picked pink, because I love pink and I love the way it came out!!!! :0) Enjoy the rest of your nite!!!

Just Jawing Pizza Box

This is a pizza box, directions I got from Splitcoaststampers and they were easy to follow.

I made a bunch of these in Close to Coco DS paper (Not with the skull) for Father's Day for the Ronald McDonald House BUT, I forgot to take a picture before I dropped them off!!! :-(
Inside was big enough to hold a deck of cards and 2 chocolate nuggets (also decorated with DS paper).
This box is made with Just Jawing stamp set and chunky glitter (my favorite)! Thanks 4 looking!

Cookie Monster Bday Card . . . .

This is the birthday card that I made all out of SU punches!!! I used the Big Shot Scallop Circle for the face. I hooked them together with a tiny brad that is hidden under this eyes. I used 1 3/4 punch for the white of the eyes and 1 inch circle punch for the black of the eyes. For his mouth I used my circle Coluzzle to cut out a circle and then cut in half. EASY PESY!!!!

Swaps and more swaps . . .

I had to make two different cards for a swap that I was participating in. And of course, I wait till the last minute :)
The first card is Anya Angel (from the Greeting Farm) which I used lots of Stickles on. They are sooooo pretty up close.

The second card is Just Jawing by SU. I used chunky glitter (I love me some glitter)!!!
Have a great Sunday! I'm off the the ballet to see The Lil Mermaid with my grannie :)

More Kitty's . . .

Here are some more Hello Kitty's that I made. The pail is for a guy at work that is selling chocolates for his daughter. We all keep paying him in change and I thought I would make this to put all the $$$ in. I used the Big Shot for this and around the tiara I used pink stickles. I'm sooo sad that you can't see all the sparkely in the picture :( It came out a little on the plain side for me, after I gave it to him, I thought that I could've used more ribbons on the handles. The second Hello Kitty is a card I made with the Cricut for a birthday party we went to. I'm still learning how to use the Cricut, so I cut off her bow on accident :) ooops! And since I always do

things at the last minute, I had to cover the ooopss with a flower and bling! Dang, and now that I look at the picture, one of the ears is more black than white!!!!! OMGosh, good thing the little girl turned 5 and isn't gonna notice all this! LOL!!!!!

Valentine's for the girls . . .

These are the lip balm holders I made for the girls at work, and the 3 girls that work at my favorite breakfest spot, and my girl who does my eyebrows, and anyone else who crossed my path that day!
They are a little on the plain side, but I did soooo many, it was okay. I used the XL purse die in the big shot. And a skull stamp from a set called Love Struck by Pink Paislee. And lip balm by Avon :)

Hello There . . .

I'm sorry I've been missing in action. I have had no creative mojo lately :( But it's coming back slowly. :)
The Hello Kitty tote is one that I CASED from Enjoyli's great blog which you can see here.
I used pink glitter paper around the wings which is really hard to see in the picture.
The Ghirardelli's candy boxes are for the Ronald McDonald House and the pattern I got from Splitcoaststampers. I used a retired SU stamp set that I couldn't part with called "Olive You." My great hubby glued on all the googly eyes for me :)

I'm finishing up on some Valentine treats for the girls at work, which I will get a picture loaded on the blog this weekend.
Have a great nite! I'm sooooo happy to be back!
