Hexagon Birthday Card

I'm really liking the hexagon thing.  I once again used the Eclips. It's really easy to find SVG's on the internet.  I just google and find almost anything.

CTMH Cricut Artiste Birthday Card

I finally got the chance to use my CTMH Artiste Stamp set: Birthday!  I love the colors here.  I also cut with my cricut.

Soccer Birthday Card

Brought to you by:  THE SIZZIX ECLIPS!  Surprise!  Love the soccer theme, tis the season!

Father's Day Tie card

Jumping ahead of myself!  But it could be a Happy "man" birthday card. 

IPad Bling!

I made these for the Sister Missionaries who are serving in our area right now.  They got new IPad mini's (they're so cute, the IPads that is, sisters are cute too, but...).  So we decided to bling them up!  I used the Eclips again!

Robot Card

I found this cool paper at Craft Warehouse on clearance for .10 a sheet and I finally found a way to use it.  I found this robot and gears svg for free on line and used my trusty Eclips to do the job! Add a little cuttlebug dot folder and there you go!  I love the way it turned out.

You'll see in my next couple of posts that I'm into Birthday cards right now.

Easter Bunny Milk Carton


Okay, I'm a little early on Easter.  I didn't even look at the calender until a week ago to see when it was.  So I made these about a month ago thinking it would be much sooner than April 20th.  Oh well.  Now all I have to do is fill them with snacks and they will go into the Easter Baskets!

This is the milk carton from Close To My Heart Artiste cricut cartridge.  The bunny I just kind of pieced together using the basic shapes in the CCR (cricut craft room).  As opposed to the Cricut Design Studio.  Which is  whole different tangent I'm going to go into.  I bought the new Cricut Explore because I heard it would cut svg's and true type fonts and be so wonderful.....NOT!  I returned it and I'm still angry.  The Design Studio can't even do the basics like shadow feature the Silhouette Cameo and SCAL can do.  Very disappointing!

Well, back to happy Easter thoughts!

My Daddy is a Soldier Onesie

My sister and brother in law had twins this winter and their poor Daddy was sent to somewhere I can't mention.  So my OTHER sister in law was kind enough to have me make this cute little onsie for the little guy.  I didn't take a pic of the girl onsie.  To be honest, I didn't like that one as much!

How cute is this?

Super Hero Fort Kit

As usual this is something I found on Pinterest and used my Sizzix Eclips to create it.  The Super Hero shield is from the font called Hall of Fame and has so many great super hero symbols on it.  Then I customized everything for my 5 year old grandson, Ethan!  I wanted to send it too him for Easter, but of course, I couldn't stop myself from sending it early.

On pinterest I saw it made with a drawstring bag, but I found this great canvas backpack at Joan's for $4.99, then used my 40% off coupon to make it even cheaper (can't do that sort of math in my head anymore).  It will make it much easier for him to tote around.
I used vellum over the top of the lightening bolt so you could see through it.


Inside is a sheet, some rope, a flashlight, some glow sticks and some clamps.  All but the sheet you can find at the dollar store.  I also put in some candy, because that's what any good grandma would do, right?
