Pink Bow Girl Skull

A Pink Bow, Girl Skull Birthday Card.

I love this card. The cutter used here was a small heart punch for the eyes and my scissors, (no electric cutters used here).

This card is a great "go to" card for when you need a quick, girly, trendy card for any occassion. 

This is definitely a scrap that!

Girly Skull

Girly Skull and Crossbones Card.

Here is a Birthday Card I made that matches my Zebra & Skull Banner.

I used my electric cutter and MTC Software...I'm still a newbie at this but it works awesome! If your making something that requires a lot of cutting, then a cutter is a must, but I have to admit I'm a crafty geek and sometimes enjoy the Good Ole "Hand cut"way. LOL...I guess it brings me back to Kindergarten...Hey, there's nothing wrong with feeling like a kid again! (8 
Have a great day and...

Zebra & Skull Banner

The Birthday Girls wanted Zebra Print and Girly Skulls and using black, white and hot pink for their colors I created this Zebra & Skull Banner.

I used MTC Software and my electric cutter, then glued and pasted till the cows came home...ha! (8

Heck, go check out Svgcuts while your at it, they have all kinds of fun stuff on there blog as well.

Ok, so back to the banner...I added a little BLING to it too!

There are a few other projects to watch for that go with this, so stay tuned! (8

Free Halloween Printable

Here is a cute Free Halloween Printable from...darn...doesn't it just drive you crazy when you can't find the link to link back? I am sorry, but I can't remember where this printable came from. If anybody comes across it, would you kindly let me know...I would love to give credit to the person who made this darling printable. I made the banner and I just love how cute it turned out! I think I might be addicted to Printable Freebie's now.   

It only took about 30 minutes to assemble with the help of my electric cutter.

I love the cute little graphics... 

...just adorable, don't you think.

and these I stumbled across over at...V and Co: kid spider craft and other fall projects

These are free for you to print and place into your existing picture frames for the Holiday what a spiffy idea I would say, wouldn't you? I just want to say V and Co is one of my favorite blogs, check it out and you will see why (8

Happy Halloween!

Baby Jesus...

Baby Jesus in a Manger, Christmas Tree Ornaments.

I found these cute Baby Jesus kits last year on sale at the I have have to say, they have the cutest products...I love them! Though I could not find the link to this kit on the website, they do have them in their catalog that came to my house, but while your looking around on their site you might bump into them. The kit makes 12 Nativity Ornaments.

While your there check out this cute Button Beard Santa Ornament craft Kit  I made last year too. I gave them away before I took pictures but they turned out sooooo cute! The kit makes 3 Santa ornaments.

I not only fell in love with this kit because of the sweet baby Jesus, but because it reminded me of the  Popsicle craft kit I had as a kid. (8 LOL! Anyway these were fun to make...a little tricky making the first few little people, but went quickly there after.

A Latte Wishes

Are you sending A latte Wishes but need some inspiration? 

Here is a card for those Coffee Lovers.

It's funny but I have been holding on to these never been used Starbucks Coffee sleeves for about two years now, (I only know that because it has been two years since I quit my job to be a SAHM, and that was when I picked them up). So anyway, I have been thinking about how to use these sleeves for two years! HA!

I was able to use up pieces of card stock in my scrap bin and use all those left over random rub-on-letters that lay around forever...I would call this a success!
Off into my card stash it goes for somebody someday (8

Hello Kitty

I use to LOVE Hello Kitty when I was a kid, it is so cool to see it popular again! These are made from scrabble tiles...I know right, how awesome! Well, I can say that because I did not come up with awesome idea...I was inspired by the many talented crafters in blog world and if I could think of one that stood out more it would be  Etsy stores like ImJewelee where I bought all of my supplies.     

Super cute right?

Super easy to make!

You can put ANY custom image you want on them! 

I made this one for Katelynn the birthday girl!

I even made some for all her little girlfriends!

They LOVED them (8!

Buying Sterling Chains for the adults would make a cute and unique gift in a pinch!

Dallas Cowboys

Dallas Cowboys Romo Jersey birthday card...

...great for the cowboy fans you know.

Whipped this up a couple of weeks ago and thought I would share another version of the die cutters used here! The imperfections are what I love about free handing it.
Die cutters are nice to have but with a little imagination you can still make plenty of things you would typically make on your cutter. You should try it! Go create something without your cutter.

Halloween Soap Dispensers

BOO! Gotcha! (8
Here is a very cheap and clean (8 way to decorate the bathroom this October with these frightfully cute Halloween soap dispensers. 

The kiddos will love them as well as your guest. Use them all October and then throw them away or save for them for next year and refill again and again.  

Place them on your kitchen sink for a spooky fun decoration. One thing is for sure, these creepy crawlers will strike up a conversation where ever you place them!

Back To School

Mod Podge notebooks are quick and easy to make just in time for back to school.
Lately, I have been Mod Podging ANYTHING I can get my hands on and these back to school  
notebooks are no exception!

With a little scrapbook paper, cheap notebooks, Mod Podge, and a sponge brush you can make these too.

They are great for back to school gifts. 

The kiddos seem to love them too. You can personalize them with their initial, name, or favorite theme or character.

Or just use them to help keep yourself organized like I do. (8
