Trendy Tool Tote - Happy Birthday Heather

Have you seen “My Time Made Easy” templates? I stumbled upon this cute Trendy Tool Tote last week and couldn’t wait for an excuse to make something out of it. Thankfully, I didn’t need to wait long because tomorrow is my friend Heather’s birthday. Nestled inside are 7 little caffeinated shots I found at the local liquor store in hopes she can have a few and relax on her trip to the river in July.

I made this at my sample to see how to put it together, however, I feel so in love with it that I ended up giving it to her instead of making another. Next time, I plan to use a much thicker cardstock.

Happy Birthday Heather – just don’t enjoy the shots too much without me.

Big Hat Bridal Brunch - Party Favors

Don’t you just love Bridal Parties? My cousin is getting married and asked if I could make the party favors for her Big Hat Bridal Brunch in hot pink and black. I couldn’t resist doing these cute little purses from the Cricut TBBM..

Also, here is the card I made for the soon to be bride’s gift. Made with Cricut Wild Card - Inside of the card says "Coupon" Redeem for a Bridal Scrapbook. Now, to get pictures of the brunch and turn it into a 6x6 mini album. Oh I can’t wait!

Purse Gift Card Holders

I don’t know about you but I love giving and receiving gift cards but a gift card can be boring to the recipient. Ooh, another card *yawn*. I saw these cute little purses on another blog (sorry I can’t give you credit, I’ve lost your site) and fell in love with them. These come together so quickly. I sat down and whipped out 12 of them using scraps left from other projects. Here are a few of my favs.

Baby Shower Party Favors

I love babies!! When I found out one of the ladies at work with was having a baby, I got so super excited with the idea of making cute baby shower party favors. First task was to get the help of co-workers. With the their help we made 45 of these cute little piggy cup cake holders (cut with Design Studio and Cricut) and with the left over paper we made 50 matching "thank you" cards for the Mother. These were even cutier in person.

Valentine Mailbox

Everyone was talking about the really cute mailboxes at Target in the dollar section. I went to two different Target's and couldn't find one - so I decided to make my own out of paper. I found this great template at My Time Made Easy. I downloaded the template and turned it into a cut using Make The Cut. I love how it turned out.

Scrapals Week 4, 2010 Callenge - Finish what you Started

Hi All - can you believe we are already at week 4? This week I challenge you to finish something you started. It could be a project you started and set aside, using a kit you purchased with something in mind and never did, it could even be paper you bought with something special in mind and never used. This week you will get 5 points for each project you finish for a max of 3 projects (or 15 points). Finishing cards will be worth 2 points so you can finish 8 cards to get your 15 points.

Below is a mini album the shape of a purse I started OVER a year ago and just finished this week. I plan to give it to my niece for her Birthday in March and let her pick out her own pictures. I have SO many unfinished projects so don't be surprised if you see this challenge again in the future.

Purse Gift Card Holder using Make the Cut software

When I first saw the purse gift card holder Dawn at Stampin Up, made with the Big Shot Top Note die cut, I knew I had to lift this project. I decided to make a more playful topper to use up some left over birthday paper and it was an opportunity to play with the new software I bought called "Make The Cut". I just love out this turned out. Leave me a comment with your email addy if you would like me to send you the .mtc cut. Go to Dawn's youtube video for details on how to put the purse together. ~~~Thanks for looking~~~

Cuttlebug Spot - Party Favor Challenge

This week's challenge at the Cuttlebug Spot is all about Party Favors and how could I resit? I love making party favors!!

This is a simple candy bar wrapper made to fit a standard size Hershey bar. The baby and Thank you are from Cricut's New Arrival Cart and I used the bubble embossing folder on the cardstock to give it texture.

Scrapals Week 2, 2010 Callenge - Becky Higgins Multiphoto Sketch

My 2010 New Years Resolution was to begin to downsize my house to make room for my Mother In Law and her caregiver who we plan to move in within the next 6 to 12 months. For those of you who have seen my scrap room can attest to the fact it will probably take me 6 to 12 months to get through it all and maybe longer if I keep stopping and browsing through my old scrapbooking magazines. However, this week’s challenge comes to your straight from one of those old magazines – the July 2009 issues of Creating Keepsakes using Becky Higgins multiphoto sketches.

This week’s challenge is to create a two page layout using one (or more) of the sketches below for 5 points per two page spread for a maximum of 3 two page spreads (or 15 points).
