Yikes...another month

Howdy peeps!

Where does the time go?? I've been busy crafting...what about you...I know...I need to go check you out...

This is one of the many pocket letter pals I made, swapping with others and sending to friends.  This one is "Tilda" focused - the front above.

The back, according to the originator, Janette Lane, is to be filled with goodies.  My Sissy, Nancy Martinez, loved this.

To see more, check out my channel on You Tube.

Thanks for stopping to see what you're up to.

Happy Crafting!

Mason Jars

Hey y'all,

Can you believe I missed the whole month of April? I am so busy doing the You Tube thing that I miss out on blogging.  But no worries, I'll catch up to what you all are doing soon.  But I want to share some embellishments I made earlier this year - these are actual tags that I have put on gifts that I send people.

As you can see, these all have fabric as the base and I added flowers, ribbon and lace to complete the look.  I've made smaller embellishments for two swaps I'm in - will show those later.

Thanks for stopping by.  Happy Crafting!

Good morning y'all,

I love to learn new things and sometimes in crafting, I end up doing what I like and forget to venture off into new horizons.  Well, there was a swap over at YPP and I joined it.  Here's what I made:

The more I 'tangle', the more ideas I get on how to form them.  It actually relaxes you because it removes the clutter from your mind so that you can "tangle".  Love this!

Thanks for stopping by! Happy Crafting!

Ribbon Book Marks

Hey peeps,

It's been awhile...but I haven't forgotten you - I will make a round of blogs today and see what you've been up to.  I hope you all have been doing your crafty thing with gusto.  I have - here's the latest:

This is a mini note card from a swap at Your Paper Pantry.  We make 5 and get back 5 different ones.  It's a really cool swap idea.

Alright, I'm keeping it short and sweet today.  Have a groovy weekend.

Kit Swapping

Happy Friday!

I am really enjoying the swaps over at Your Paper Pantry.  For the ticket swap, we are making kits and the theme is "home".  Granted, it took me awhile to come up with something cool (er...easy), I finally came up with one that involves a cute little dog and his house.  Check it out!

I wish I was more creative with the house.  I think the terrier looks cute like he's peeking out over the grass.  But all in all, I was able to use my Silhouette to make the cuts and I'm loving the heck out of that machine!

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy crafting!

Hello y'all!

I joined a swap (Fancy Screen Divider cards) at Your Paper Pantry.  It was something I'd wanted to do after seeing some on Pinterest.  Then I found a tutorial on SplitCoastStampers (I love that site).  Here's what I made:

 I really love these screen dividers.  All you need are decorative punches.  I have a slip of paper on one of the panels so that the person can write a note and it stays hidden in case you want to display it.

I made coordinating envelopes to match.  

Thanks for stopping by.  Let me know what you think.

Happy Crafting!

Happy Valentine's Day

Good day peeps!

I wanted to show you these mini note cards I made for a swap on Your Paper Pantry.  They really came out well even though I made a bunch that did not meet the "mini" requirement so I had to read the instructions again...doh!

I cut the hearts and Cupid out with my Silhouette Portrait - boy do I love that machine! 

The mason jar is from Pinterest, as are the inspiration for these cards.

I wanted to use my new Martha Stewart punch on this one.

I was on a roll until I realized these were too big.  So I started over.  Here's what I made:

I made a pink background and a red one (with cute envelopes).  I still had hearts left over so I made a collage.  I think they turned out rather cute, don't you?  

Thanks for stopping by.  Hope your sweetest day is delightful!

Happy Crafting!
