Loving the Skype

Hello Crafty Peoples!

My cousin Gina from Gina's Crafting spot on You tube.
and I have been skyping and crafting for the past few days. I love it! I feel like we are in the same room scrappin like the good ol days. It's so nice to be able to get back to scrapping. I'm even more inspired since we took our first trip to Disney. I am hoping I can get down here more this weeks because school will be starting for the kids and me soon. Back to the old grind.

I am still trying to figure out how to use iMovie and just may go back to windows movie maker to make some videos for You tube. I have been buying stuff from Scrapbooks.com, paper wishes.com and of course Michaels, Joann and Hobby Lobby.

How many of you like to video chat with your friends while scrappin?

Hope to post pics soon!

I've been a craftin....

I have been crafting but not as much as I like. I will post some cards I've made.

These were made for my late husbands family. The top one used some of the things I bought on the HSN 24 hour crafting shows. I made a video of my haul and as soon as I can get it going I will post.

I have another card I made for my dad but I will post that later.

Have a great day!!

Hello There Crafty Crafters!

I have returned with much news both personal and crafty. I have truly missed sharing all my crafty goodness...which honestly hasn't been much because of my personal life. Lots of HUGE changes and now I am able to be able to craft more...for the moment. 

Let's start with the personal...

2. I moved

Jars of love

Wanted to show some of the jars I made for the children to place their flowers they brought their teachers for appreciation week. 
This is a side view
Here they are in the bin ready for delivery.

I used the close to my heart cart artiste. I can't say enough great things about it, it's so versatile. I love all the images on it. I recommend for this image to make sure you use a good mat and fresh blade, I was toward the end of mine and had a hard time knocking out all the little intricate pieces. Thank goodness my mom helped, I had almost 30 to make. I designed with Microsoft word for the circular wording and a strip of paper to wrap around the jar. I was hoping the atg adhesive would be strong enough but some came apart. Next time, I will use ribbon to wrap round and possibly the red tacky tape. 

Thank for looking!

Some items I've made for school

Hello everyone! I recently downloaded the blogger app so now I'm able to get on more hopefully! I was on my daughters school PTO and made various crafts. I recently bought the martha stewart circle maker from HSN. I used it to make a doily for a gift to the teachers for teacher appreciation week. 
I love using it! I got many compliments on it. And now it hangs on the cabinet doors in the teachers lounge. 
We purchased various k-cups for the teachers to enjoy. 

This punch kit came with other designs but this one I love the most. I have made a layout with it too. It can make circles from 6 inches to 12. The hardest part when cutting out a 12 in. circle is making sure you have it directly in the center of the paper. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Helping out a friend :)

Hello crafty crafters!
I have returned to show you something I help create for my sister's friend who was graduating nursing school. Of course, I went in Pinterest for some inspiration. I bought dr. check up for this project. Here's some of the stuff I created.

Here is the banner all together
We also made labels for the medicine bottle treats. My sister helped create the label using Avery.com. I highly recommend using it to print your own. 
We also made these. It was my first time working with candy melts.

Here is a shot of all the decor we put up and made. 
She loved it and I was happy to help. I love making banners and it was fun. 

Thanks for looking!
