Flower Pot Card

Hello everyone,

Happy Friday! I am enjoying myself over at Stampin' Dymonz Scrap Shack because there are so many things that I can do. Sometimes I do more things than I can keep up with - it's just so incredibly fabulous there!

This is the top of the cigar box I altered for a swap we recently had at The Scrap Shack. My partner was Helen, who is a fan of the color purple. I love this color and had fun painting the cigar box and adhering all of this fun stuff to it.

I didn't change the wood grain on the inside, being a lover of wood grain myself. But I filled it with all sorts of goodies.

I threw in some of the things Croms would find useful, including skulls and cross bows since she is a lover of the dark arts. She did a video and it was nice seeing her excitement. This was a fun swap and I've already signed up for the next one.

Come on by and see what we're all up to. It's a lot of fun at The Shack!

Irresistibly Sweet...

Hello lovely crafting bloggers,

I hope you've all had a fantastic weekend and enjoyed some time to be creative. I've been given a sweet award from a lovely lady, Dr. Sonia S V who thought my blog was irresistibly sweet.

Thank you Sonia for your kind words - you are so sweet. Sonia actually makes rather sweet creations herself - her blog is Cards, Crafts, and Kids' Projects. I don't have little ones around but I have found some rather lovely things I could do with my grandsons that would be fun! Check her blog out - you'll find something there that's irresistible too!

The Village Scraps - First Edition!

Good morning lovely bloggers!

Well, I never thought I would be published. Typically, I would either miss the deadline or I could never make something I thought was going to be picked up by the magazine. HA! This time, not only am I featured a few times in this fantastic magazine, but Tellen's Place Designs also gets an airing - yay! Thanks Stampin' Dymonz! :>)

This is an acetate candy holder that I made (King Mufasa has eaten every delicious morsel of this wonderful "Werther's Originals" with the caramel center).

If you'd like to see more of what I've created (that I didn't publish here), click here for Stampin' Dymonz Scrap Shack or here for the online edition of The Village Scraps. This magazine posts many projects from our DT on a weekly basis, so check it out - really a great team of crafting Divas!

Happy Crafting! :~)

Happy Friday!

Happy Friday!

I hope everyone is having a great week - so glad the weekend is here!

I am starting to like these "step" cards. They seem to be a little easier than it looks! I love this Bugaboo image too!

Here's the inside.

I really appreciate all that stop by and leave their wonderful comments. It really makes my day. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! :~)

Happy Crafting! :~)

Stepping, Stepping, Stepping...

Good morning my lovely blogger friends,

I hope you've had an incredible weekend filled with lots of fun and excitement. I've been busy working on DT projects for Stampin' Dymonz Scrap Shack - what a fun place to be. I can't tell you how many new things I've learned and been able to add to my crafty repertoire - it's just fabulous!

I learned this technique ("Pulling Pastels") from our M.O.M. online crop session that we do twice a month. Isn't it something? I am quite proud of how it came out.

I hope you have a fantastic week. Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Crafting! :~)
