Lawn Fawn Teacher Tissue Box


 Won't this look cute sitting on the Teacher's desk? 

I made it with the Lawn Fawn A Good Apple stamp set from Inspiration Emporium and a tissue box cut file from the Silhouette Store.

It has been ages since I have embossed and I was so pleased with how it turned out! I embossed sentiments all around the top lid.. and then added the embossed bulletin board and sentiment to one side. I stamped the little apples and fussy cut them out and added them to the bulletin board and the lid. The fun cardstock is School Days with Glitter from The Paper Studio 12x12 stack.

Yep-- I am one of those Mothers.....


Yes, I confess...I am one of those Mom's that still makes fun stuff for her kid's  school birthday party! Yes, Even when the child IS the teacher of the class room!

My daughter Abby is a 5th grade teacher and  had a birthday last week.   I made these fun cupcakes and water bottles for her students.  I forgot the fun zebra cupcake holders for this picture darn it! Oh well...I aslo  found fun pink and zebra striped napkins at the Dollar Store and Zebra and Pink balloons too-perfecto!

My Abby loves PINK  and anything mustachy---that was a built in party theme for me!

I found the water bottle labels for free download HERE at I Married Superman and the mustache cut file from Mustaches and Glasses  at  Kadoodle Bug Designs.


Sorry Abby-I had to add this picture that includes your dog Billie  photo bombing! 

Here are few of the PINK  things I made for the birthday girl... my first try at vinyl layering. I decided I need to get clear transfer tape-would be so much easier! These were fun to make though!

That's the scoop for today! Hope you enjoyed this pink post!

Penny Black Night Things


Trick or Treat!

I love fun Silhouette Halloween Frames. They really make these fun Penny Black Halloween stamps from Inspiration Emporium shine!  I colored this spooooky image with copics-added it to the back of the spider frame and finished it off with a few accent silver pearls. I cut the orange plaid banner with my Silhouette and added it below the image. This card is a 6x6 size-had to allow space for all those fun spiders!  I am a little disappointed that you can not see all the shadows etc around the characters, but IRL there are  purples and greys used to give this image a little bit of a 'spooktacular' feel! Yep-it has been a great Penny Black sort of day!





Always happy to have you pop in to say HELLO!

The holly is a misc cut file I already had.  I have to tell you how I measured this cute little box...the head holds 1 Lindor Truffle, the middle section holds 3 Lindor Truffles and the bottom of the box holds 6 or 7!  So basically, a whole bag of Lindor Truffles LOL!

Trick Or Cheese-House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge 178



House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge #178

Paper Piecing





Got to love this challenge! 


Just a clarification-this is piecing (cutting little pieces of paper and adding it into your image...not piercing (poking holes) Just sayin...I get confused about things like this so helpin' you out LOL!


Our wonderful teamie Dorte chose the challenge for #178!


I chose a new little stamp named Trick or Cheese (linked below)-Using a MFT pierced circle Stax die and then paper piecing the cheese and the little pumpkin candy holder. I used some copics to accent the designer papers I used-just to add that little extra dimension. I added the image onto a fun spider web card base I cut with me Silhouette and managed to find a cute little spider in the Silhouette store too..  I found this piece of ribbon is my cast off drawer...a perfect match!  I used a Simon Says banner die and a cute little Studio G sentiment to finish off the card.

Penny Black BFF's











We all like to make projects that make our friends smile. This darling little Penny Black stamp is definitely one of my favorites and sure makes me smile!

I colored the image with copics and added the little piggies with pop dots on to a fun little gift box designed by Lori Whitlock and cut with my Silhouette. I added  some glittery 'sky' paper and a little green Polka dot grass (don't we all want glittery clouds and  polka dot grass for real? LOL). I cut the BFF letters with my Silhouette and added a little May Arts ribbon tied to the top to finish off the scene.

This is a nice size box for a little present. I enlarged the box using a 115% setting-that way I could  use the complete width of the  12x12 piece of paper. The finished box size is 4 3/8 by 3 5/8 x 1 3/4.

I am entering this in the following challenges:

waterfall card-You Make Life Sweet!




Hello!!! I do hope you are enjoying your wonderful weekend, and maybe even an extra day on Monday.  I thought I would sneak in this card before the end of the month. You all know how I love cards with movement. This card is an A2 waterfall cut file from the Silhouette Store designed by Lori Whitlock. 

As summer winds down, we are still having some warms days in my neighborhood. By Golly, we had a 100° day this week! That certainly calls for something cool and delish don't you think?  

This cute stamp set from Paper Smooches named Sugar Rush from Inspiration Emporium has certainly become a favorite of mine!

I added all the sweets to the waterfall card and if you watch the video below, you can see how it actually works if you are not familiar with how they flip! If you watch real close, you can even see the little green and yellow O's I added to my fingernails in honor of the first day of Oregon Duck football!

Pop Up Teacher Desk Cards.!



 School's Back in Session!!!  I made these two pop up desk cards (designed by Lori Whitlock) last June for my daughters, they are both school teachers and start back to work next week here in Oregon! They got put away in a drawer due to the events of the summer-but the beginning of the school year  is even a better time to send them out anyway.  Now I just need to be a good Mom and put them in the mail instead of putting them away in a drawer again :).

 I used the Silhouette pens to write the names and also did a little inking around the edges of the drawers to make them stand out more. A super simple file for sure! I have been working on a fun school bulletin board with my daughter that lives near me and teaches 5th grade...we have fun checking out Pinterest for great ideas to use. I will post a pic of the finished board when I get a chance!

I must say-I love Lori Whitlock files...they are so creative and always go together so easily! I forgot to take a pic of the front, but I cut out the banners on the designer paper and added them to the front. Simple and easy!



Have a great year Mrs. Newton and Mrs. Cyphers!

Love You!
 Mom

Happy Birthday Cole-Turning 7!



Cole turns 7! 

 I can't believe it has been 7 years ago today that my little grandson made an appearance! My how times flies!
I took this picture a couple weeks ago at the Mt Hood Adventure Park here in Oregon where we took him for an early birthday present. He is actually jumping on a trampoline with tethers-oh what fun Peter Pan!

Gwamma Sue decided to make him a special card for his birthday...as rusty as I am-it took me off and on a whole day to make this...good grief.  I think he will especially love the googly eyes!


Everything was cut with my Silhouette using an Echo Park "Scoot" 6x6 paper pad from Inspiration Emporium and  some great cut files from the Silhouette Store. I used  misc fonts to cut the number 7 and Cole's name.

Links to the cut files:

Clown Face
A2 Inside Step Card-4 steps
Celebrate (balloon with face)





Gotta love those googly eyes!

Thanks for stopping in today-see you soon!

Rocky Raccoon



My crafty mojo is slowly coming back, but it is still not there quite yet! Thanks for hanging in there with me!

I thought I would share with you this cute little Raccoon that I made back in June...one of those projects you see and just have to make because it is so darned cute! Little Rocky is from the Silhouette store. I made him into a card-great for any occasion. Any suggestions for a cute sentiment inside?

I have a few other projects to show you and a fun school bulletin board that I am working on with my daughter...almost done and then I will share...super cute project that is helping me learn V3 of the Silhouette software-YIKES!

Stay tuned....

Mr & Mrs Wedding card





Hello my fellow crafty bloggers! It has been oh so long since I have gotten to craft a wee bit. I can't believe I have not posted in over a month. I have so missed being crafty, it is my stress reliever-and boy if there was ever a time I needed a stress reliever outlet! More to come on that later....

Today I want to share a card I made for a happy occasion!  I have a sweet niece getting married tomorrow and this is what I made. Gotta love Mickey and Minnie!  I googled the kissing  image and traced the outer edge in my Silhouette software, cutting it out of white and adding black behind it-easy peasy with no paper piecing! I added the red heart and used a Disney font (Waltograph) to add their name to the front as well.

TIP: Cut a rectangle around the name when you cut it out.  Carefully pull up the rectangle (leaving the letters on the cutting mat) and using this negative-set it on your card front. Dot some glue in the negative spaces where the letters were. Add your letters back in "their space"  and pull up the outside rectangle right away. Your letters are perfectly aligned this way!

I topped  off this little wedding card with some Bo Bunny black polka dot ribbon. This is a big card...6 x 7.25  ish inches in size!

I added the kissing meeces inside a Silhouette artisan frame cut file  using heart cardstock by Best Creation (Sweet Love), making it into a stand up card.


                                     

Thanks for popping in to say Hello! I hope to be sharing more craftiness soon!
