Harry Potter Water Bottles




Harry Potter Water Bottles






My kids are Hydro Flask addicts!  If you don't have one of these, you really should get one, two or maybe 4 like my daughter Abby!  

These containers keep your cold liquids cold for hours(you will still have ice the next day) or hot(would still be hot the next day). They come in many sizes and shapes.

Abby stopped by the other day and wanted to decorate her flasks in honor of school starting this week for the teachers in this area. (She is a second grade teacher). Being a big Harry Potter fan, she went with a HP theme.  All the cut files were shared on a facebook Harry Potter crafty group except for Snape(blue).  That file was purchased off Etsy-(you can find a link to that file at the end of this post.)

Dobby was the center of the O in the Avenge Dobby flask...so we did not want to waste him, so we added a little Dobby to the back of the bottle...he is only about 3/4 tall or so.




I must say I am quite rusty in my Harry Potter knowledge, but Abby brought me up to speed and explained what all these files meant.  That was just as fun as adding this vinyl art to the bottles!



After all this time...always

Penny Black Midway reminder-Your Favorite Technique Found Love!













Mid Way Reminder Post


Let us see--

Your Favorite Technique




Well...you gotta know that my favorite technique is to make cards that move or have dimension...so here we have a great little motion card. This card base was cut with my Silhouette.  You can find a link for everything at the end of this post.   

I knew when I saw this card base that it would be a perfect match for this adorable froggy-Penny Black Found Love!

I am just tickled when this little froggy hops across the lily pads...I love motion cards!



Wheeeeeee!

Lori Whitlock Pop Up Box Card





Pop Up Cards by Lori Whitlock

I found these patterns in the Silhouette Store and knew I had to make them!. There are many different themes in this style. I have changed this design up to personalize it for the recipients.





 This card is for my brother Chris.  My brother has been fighting cancer for over 5 years. He is an amazing person and such an inspiration. He takes chemo everyday and still gets up and goes to work-he always keeps busy driving wheat combines, cats and whatever big machines he can get his hands on! He really is motivated to keep going and live his life to the fullest! What a guy!

He loves to ride motorcycles and also is getting ready to go to Burning Man for a vacation(huge art and music festival in the middle of the Nevada desert). I added the motorcycle and the Burning Man icon(instead of the camper) to make this special for him! I also changed the front black panels into road pieces by cutting  little rectangles to mimic center dividing road lines and adding a yellow piece behind.  I added some of the trees and the clouds on pop dots for added dimension. I included  a panel on the back of the card to write my message.  These files are so easy to personalize! I love this card design!





This second card is for my friend in Alaska. She works for a School Bus company.  With all the trees this just reminded me of Alaska. I thought long and hard about deleting the sun on this one LOL!! Maybe should have added more clouds and some rain??!

Penny BlackSaturday Challenge- Critter Party

















Your Favorite Technique






I hope your day is Super too! 


It is time for the August Penny Black Saturday Challenge. I do hope you will join in with a fun creation!

I am sure you all know that my favorite techniques are coloring and making 3D projects with my Silhouette. So here we go...

Today I used the clear stamp set  Critter Party and a fun birthday sentiment from Wet & Wild clear set. I also used the Cupcake box card cut file from the Silhouette Store.

The Critter Party stamp set has many little stamps included (I love that kitty with the present)...I colored up numerous images but only used a couple so things didn't look so cluttered. note: This box card folds flat for mailing.

House Mouse and Friends Dr. Amanda







 #224


Chocolate and Cream



I tried...to keep it all chocolate and cream colors, but I just had to add a little light red to the image. Call me a cheater LOL--It just needed it!  

Awww...a dear Mousie teamie has fallen and seems to be out of action for some time to come. I feel so bad for her, so this card will be flying it's way to her in hopes of cheering her up a wee bit. 

I made my card is using an old stamp named Dr. Amanda and colored with copics. All the layers are cut with Lawn Fawn stitched rectangles. The tag is cut with my Silhouette and has a SU! linen thread bow.

House Mouse Birthday Belly!













Mid-Way Reminder #223


Female Birthdays
(or anything goes)





I have not had much heart to craft due to a long drawn out cherry harvest, but I did manage to color this sweet HM image a couple days ago. Unfortunately, I just could not make the design I had in my mind transfer to what I imagined. Seems the sentiment got lost  in the fun cupcake paper and the twine clashes. Oh well...guess you can't love them all...but you can love all the meecies!!! I love this 'fat and sassy' little birthday mouse! Just a little too much celebrating me thinks!

The sentiment is cut with my Silhouette and the white image is stamped on a Lawn Fawn stitched oval. I dug out some sassy birthday papers :) MME lime twist!


I do hope you will join us this week!

Oopsie....looks like someone got carried away while painting with their friend...Love that painted tail...truly friends to the end!


When I saw this stamp, I immediately envisioned it paired with paint splats of some kind.  It was fun to find this big splat frame that I could frame my adorable Painting Pals stamp.  I resized it and cut several frames-gluing them together for strength and then cut two 'splats' without the center cut out to fashion the card base.

I did hand cut around the paint brush handles to bring them outside of the frame.  For the finishing touch I added a sweet little sentiment from Penny Black Snippets sentiment set.
