Mix in a little Ferrero Rocher

Happy Thursday!  Are you ready for the day?  Today I have this little box, that I have had pinned for a while, and thought this would be the perfect little gift to make to show you for this fun Naught a Card nor Layout Thursday!

She has some great instructions and even a video as well.  (I did have to make a few corrections/decisions along the way).  

Wouldn’t it be so much more fun to give this little box of chocolate than just a package of candy?

I actually know who I am going to be giving this to!  A friend has had a rough few weeks, and just sold her house this last weekend!  So, I bet she will love this!  (I hope she likes Ferrero Rocher!)

If you make this little box, I would LOVE to see!  Make sure to join my FB group, and share your creations with other creatives as well!

What’s in the box?!?

Ok, ok, I know, maybe not the best movie quote for the crafty scene, but, I’m weird like that!  hahaha!!

Thursday is Naught a card or layout day!  So, today I have another giftable bag for you!  I saw an adorable bag that Sam over at Mixed Up Craft made, and I thought it was super cute!  I thought that I could make it using the largest Hexagon dies, and it turned out SUPER cute!

I made some adjustments for sizes, from what Sam did, but this little box/bag holds SOOOOO MUCH!!

Take a look at all that I can get into this box!  Oh my goodness!!  You guys HAVE to do this!!

I can fit NINE CTMH rolls of ribbon into this box, and it still has a bit of space in it!

Grab your Hexagon thin cuts, and play with them!

The Perfect Match is LOVE

Hello friends!

Welcome back to another week of the Card Challenge!  Each week I will make a card, share a video with you on how to create it, share what challenges inspired me with the card, and ask for you to play along with me!  Wow, that was kind of a really long sentence!  LOL!!  Anyway, it was a super fun and easy card to make, I hope you love it and are inspired to do the same!


I think these cards turned out absolutely adorable!!

Head over to my FB page to watch the video and get the measurements (really, there’s only one . . . ) and the blog that I found the challenge on!  And make sure to share a photo of the card(s) that YOU are inspired to make!

RHS Grad Night Fundraiser ~ Open Crop

As many of you know, I have a Senior this year! I am helping with the fundraising for that fun grad night party, and it should be oh, so very much fun! This particular fundraiser, I am sponsoring! It will be great fun, so I do hope that you will join us!

What: Open Crop
When: Saturday, November 19th
Where: Ridgefield High School Commons
Time: 10am to 4 pm
Why: To help raise funds for the 2012 Grad Night Party
Who: You and your friends!
Cost: $35 per person

What is included in the registration fee?

You will receive 4-8 feet of table space, and 2 project kits that are ready for you to complete!  You will have time to craft on those projects, or bring something of yours that you haven’t finished yet!  These projects will be fun to use, or that perfect little gift for someone!

This fundraiser is suited to people of all crafty levels!  You do not have to be a seasoned crafter to enjoy these projects!  There will be full instruction on how to put these fun projects together, and people to ask questions if you get stuck!

What do I need to bring?

You will only need to bring yourself and some adhesive!  Don’t have adhesive, or don’t want to figure out where to get it?  Let me know, and I can add it on to your kit (which will give the group just a bit more too!)  If you are wanting to do other crafting as well, you will need to bring whatever it is you will be working on!

How do I register?

Contact Michelle Johns at by November 1st to register for this fundraiser.

I do hope that I will see you (and some of your friends) there!  Are you too far away to come?  But want to support us anyway?  Let me know, and I can arrange to have the project kits sent to you!

Lucky Chairs to you!

So, I made some FUN cards with the Lucky paper pack and the May Stamp of the Month, Chairs!

Aren’t they cute? I have a few favorites!

These two cards are 4.25 x 4.25. I am loving the little banners that I have been seeing around, so I wanted to add it to this card! And, I must honestly say, the difference was an accident! These papers are the same, just front and back! LOL When I was adding the glue, I didn’t flip one over, so had to put it down like that! LOL!! (there are good accidents! I swear it!) The chairs are colored with CTMH’s watercolor pencils and blended with a blending pen.

This is a little 3×3 card, and they are perfect for gifts, like I have said in the past, or just to hand a little note to a friend.

And, the following is one of my new favorites! It does a magic trick! Follow the photos down, and you will see!

Isn’t that great?? I saw another card that does a very similar thing online, somewhere (forgot to save the address! grrr!). So, I had to figure out how to re-create it! LOL

I hope you enjoyed my cards!


365 Project 1

So, most everyone has heard about the photo 365 where you take a photo every day for a year. I tried that last year . . . I didn’t get very far! LOL But, I saw something new this year. It was called 365 project. And, while I might just be re-interpreting it . . . . I am taking a new view on it. I am going to do something crafty every day this year. It could be digi scrapping, paper scrapping, card making (paper or digi), crocheting, sewing, or something else entirely! LOL

So, with that in mind, I thought a card would be a great way to start!

I used a scrapping template from Sweet Tomato, resized to be 6×6 and a kit from Scrappin Daisies. Each letter has 4 layers of shadows on it! LOL I had fun making the card! I will print it out on White Daisy cardstock and it will be ready to give to anyone that I need a thanks card for!
