Easy Paper Purse


Hello and happy Sunday, I am back today with another driveby post.  I really meant to post yesterday but as life would have it I never got around to it!  I was busy running errands and getting ready for an evening out so today I am tired!  Today's project is one of the paper purses that are a buzz among crafters.  I used the simple one sheet method shared by Maymay from Maymay Made It, although there are many variations and even svg  files.  I used more paper from the Katy Davis Happiness paper pad along with some gems, a punch and magnets for the closure.  I wanted to use it for a gift bag for a party that my daughter  attended yesterday but she said you never use the first one, I think she didn't care for the paper!

Take care and have a wonderful week, it is raining here so it is going to be a lazy day for us!

Mother's Day



It's Thursday, can you believe it I'm posting two days in a row?  It's raining here, lots going on as we start to look forward to the weekend.  I'm back again to share another curtain fold card that I made using some left over paper from another card and a few pearl gems.  I am sharing today's card for the any holiday challenge over at Hiding in my Craft Room  and the use your scraps challenge over at Use Your Stuff.   I really need to step up my game if I am going to get Mother's Day cards made and in the mail in time!  I have to get my LO mojo in gear because I have some LOs to complete for a gift album too.

Take care and have a terrific Thursday!

Photo Booth


Hello and happy Wednesday, yesterday's nice temps ended with lots of rain last night.  We woke up to more seasonal temps this morning.  Today I am sharing a project that I made for one of my friends that hosted a birthday party last Saturday.  When she made her request she sent me a Crankin' Out Ctafts (Ben Franklin) you tube video,   I used the measurements in the video to cut the hole in the foam core board along with cuts from my cricut, cameo and SLICE.  I did add gems to mark the maps but you can't see them in the picture.  She wanted the colors black and yellow since he is from Pittsburgh and is an avid Steelers fan!  The only thing she had to provide is the board and I returned the cut-out portion of the board so the attendees could write birthday messages.

Thanks for your visit, have a wonderful Wednesday.

Sunday Musings


Hello and happy Sunday, I am doing a driveby post as I have been so busy as I haven't had a chance to share on my blog.  I spent the majority of last week working on a project that I will share later this week.  Today I am sharing a card that I made using some leftover paper from an unfinished project that I started last week too!  Today's card is one that I am sharing over at Scraps of Color for an encouragement challenge.  The pattern paper is from the Kahty Davis Happiness paper pad, I picked it up a few years ago on clearance at JoAnn's added a piece of ribbon, a few gems and pop dotted the stamped sentiment and the card was done!

Take care and have a wonderful week.

Happy 90th


Hello and happy Tuesday!  I am still playing catch up after being out of town last week, I had planned to share while I was away but I just didn't have time.  Today I am sharing a card that is going postal late to someone that celebrated their 90th birthday yesterday.  The card was requested by his daughter who is a member of the FB card angel group, The sketch  inspiration for the card came from this week's Mojo Monday challenge.   I am happy to share I was one of the Mojo Madness April Winners!  The card base and pattern paper are Recollections, I also used stamps and punches from my stash along with some pop dots and this card was done.   I am also sharing this card for this week's punch challenge over at Use Your Stuff.  I used two punches on this card, a circle and banner punch.

Thank you for your visit and have a wonderful day.  The weather is nice so I just may take a walk for lunch.

Hello Friday


Hello and happy Friday, I meant to share this card on yesterday but as life would have it I just didn't have time.  It was a travel day for us and we had so much to do that we left three hours past our intended time.  Today I am sharing another card using  more of the smaller scraps of paper that was inspired from Maymay's video.  The paper came from a Momenta 6x6 paper pad, not sure of the name, the sentiment is from an older Stampin Up set, added a few gems and this card was done.  I am sharing today's card for the Super Scrraps Saturday Challenge over at Hiding in my Craft Room.

Take care and have a wonderful weekend.

Curtain Fold Card


Hello and happy rainy Tuesday!  I am back today to share another card that I created after watching another video from MayMay Made It, although I am pleased with the outcome I think I still need some more practice on this type of card or rather the folds.  Can you believe how much I am stepping out of my comfort zone with these cards lately!  I am happy about that part but disappointed and sad that I haven't had time to work on LOs which really is my first love.  The paper that I used came from a K&Co Specialty pad  that has been in my stash for a long time.  I even used one of my Sizzix label dies for the first and some brads that don't get alot of use!

Thank you for your visit, wishing you and yours a terrific Tuesday.
