    Here is my project


    For this project, I used the SVGS from SVG Cuts, and may make the cut software to create  a shaped card.

    Circular Easel Card
    - Cut a circular card base out with die templates.  In this project I used SVG Files from SVG Cuts. 

    - Score one of the circle card sides in half and fold the other half up. 

    - Add adhesive to the folded up 1/2 circle.

    - Adhere another circle shape, cut with the same die you used to cut the card base, to the 1/2 circle.

    I finished the project with some embossing, as of course my Peachy Keen Stamps. All supplies are listed above

    Feliz Navidad Card

    Hey Crafters

    Today I just wanted to share with you a super fun and EASY card that I made.

    Since I always like to send out homemade Christmas cards, I have to come up with alot of simple and cute ideas that can be mass producted.

    This is a great card for just that


    I few weeks ago I picked up this stamp from the $1 bin at Michaels

    and when I saw it, I new I wanted to use some of my timeless twine with it!

    I started off by stamping the ornaments on a piece of scrap paper, in all 3 colors.

    Then I got my card base and stamped  the 3 cards on it.

    Then, I cut out the center portion from each of the stamps stamped on the scrap and adhered them down onto the center of each of the ornaments

    I added some Kraft Timeless Twine using Tombow Mono Multi Glue and  my card was pretty much done.

    The sentiment on the card comes from Scrappy Moms Stamps

    I hope you like this project. Have a fantastic Day.

    Christmas Greetings Card

    Today I wanted to share with you a Christmas Card a made a little while ago

    All of my circles were kind of funky because my Martha Stewart Circle Cutter needs a new blade

     This card was inspired by of course a mojo monday sketch. I kind of threw it together on the Fly one day, so it's not as Perfect as I like my cards but it's still pretty never the less.

    I found these Cling Mounted Rubber stamps at Tuesday Morning for $1.99 over the summer so I of course went and picked them up. You can find them online here

    I also grabbed this paper last year or the year before. I'm such a paper hoarder, so Probably even longer ago. But I decided now as as good as time as ever to try them out

    The little tag is from Cuttlebug baby face die set (this is discontinued) and I could only find it for sale here (I have no idea why it's so expensive! I'm pretty sure I got it for only $2 back in the day)

    The sentiment is from Scrappy Moms Stamps Mini Messages and fit perfectly inside the tiny tag

    Christmas joy scrapbook page


    Today I just wanted to share with you a scrapbook page I made with my Peachy Keen Stamps

    This is a 12x12 scrapbook page that I made using PK-148 Snow Gifts and PKSC-11 November 2012

    Since Christmas comes Earlier every year, I realized i'm very behind on my scrapbooking. This was from Christmas 2010 EEK!!!


    I paper pieced several gifts, and stacked then glued them together. No masking required. 

    All of the paper is from K&A Company Kris Kringle Paper pack

    I then used the super cute label  from the novemeber Stamp of the month, along with the sentiment to add a fun phrase to my project

    I die Cut the letters to form the word "Christmas" with my cuttlebug and using my white Gel pen drew on them to make them look like ornaments.

    A few quick labels with my label maker and this project was done.

    Only 2  more Christmas Layouts to go! wish me luck!

    Have a great day

    Here is my project

    Some of you may had a peak of this project on Facebook

    I decided for my project to create a k-cup holder, I got the idea from here , and I decided to do my best to recreate it. Many Many attempts later, I had this k cup holder. 

    I also used my Scrappy moms Stamps for the sentiment on the front. This makes a great thoughtful thankful gift that won't break the bank. 

    believe it or not, All of the leaves are from Peachy Keen Stamps SVGs. IF you are a subscriber to the Peachy Keen Stamps Stamp of the Month Club then you probably receive those Handy Dandy SVGs to go along with your stamp kits.

    I actually took my SVGs that came with PKSC-09 September 2012 

    and using my Make the Cut software, I did an Inset shadow on the Leaves and then it made the actual leaf shape. I just sized them down teeny tiny and cut them out on various cardstock colors to add them to my Kcup holder

    The pattern paper is from Recollections Autumn Splendor paper pack (love it)

    Of course I finished my Project off with Some Brown Timeless Twine

    Winner will win 1 spool of Timeless Twine.
