Miss Kate Cuttables Design Team Day - Birthday Wishes

Hello and Happy Wednesday.  :)

Remember to stop by and grab your Miss Kate Cuttables Freebie of the Day!

For this weeks project I made a little girl's birthday card...

I used the new Girl with Balloons file from Miss Kate Cuttables - isn't she sooooooo cute?!  I used a Peachy Keen In the Garden face stamp and added a couple of little gems to her hair bows.   For the main layer of the card I used the Clouds embossing folder by Darice . Then I used a white gel pen to put little accents on the clouds.  After it was all put together I wish I had just left them alone, LOL.  I also added some cloud shapes I made with 2 sizes of Fiskars punches.   The sentiment is from Scrappy Moms Stamps Tech Savvy stamp set.  :)

I hope you enjoyed my project for today!

Scrappy Moms Stamps Sneak Peek #1

Hello!  It's that time again ... Scrappy Moms Stamps release week!  :)

Here is my 1st project  -

I put together a little gift for graduation - I figured every college student needs a flash drive to store homework one.  As a rule, we like to have lanyards for our flash drives to help keep them from getting lost or misplaced.  I also put in a few gift cards to for treats (Sonic) and necessities (Target).  

Of course the main gift is cash - and I altered this little envelope to hold it.  First, I embossed the lower part and inked it in one of the grad's school colors.  Then I stamped a sentiment from our new Countless Occasions stamp set.  I also printed "2014" on cardstock and stamped a sentiment on top from SMS Fun Celebrations set on it to make a tag. A bow made from white crinkle ribbon finishes the project.  

Here is the gift with the envelope inside - 

Here is the full Countless Occasions set and the other set we are releasing today, Tech Savvy -

These sets are in stock and ready to ship and we hope that you will love them as much as we do.  :)

Homemade "Acrylic Dots"!

Hello again!

I wanted to share with you a really fun and easy project - making Acrylic Dots from Perler Beads.  :)

I found this tutorial on the web from Katie at Our Charmed Life and had to try it.  (She was also kind enough to send me some Perler Beads to try out - I have never seen the striped ones before - thank you Katie!)

I was so excited to try it out that I forgot to take a picture of my before but here is the result of my 1st batch...  (I baked them at 325 degrees for 35 minutes.)

Here is a close up to show how perfect and shiny they are! 

I was so happy with how they turned out I HAD to make more!  Here they are in the oven...

Well... let's just say my 2nd batch was not as successful as my 1st one.

For some reason some of the colors melted like doughnuts instead of dots - I have no idea why!  Has this happened to anyone else?  Does anyone know why or if you can stop it from happening?  The only thing I can think of is that the dye used to make those colors just isn't conducive to the process.  LOL

I hope you enjoyed my quick little tutorial, I'd love to hear how it turned out if you give it a try.

SMD Terrific Tuesday Challenge - April Showers Bring May Flowers

Hello, everyone!

Thank you for joining me today for my TTC project...

I decided to make a different size card than usual - this one measures - 2.75" x 5.5", it's tall and skinny!  I use the flower and stem from MKC Flower file and cut 2 petal layers to make it a little fuller.   I also make the center circle just a little bigger so the I could stamp a Peachy Keen In The Garden face.Then I "planted" it in the pot from MCK Sunflower in pot file.

I added some Lemon Drop bakers twine, homemade acrylic dots and a sentiment from Scrappy Moms Stamps Flower Power set.  (I will do a post about my experience with making the acrylic dots soon...)

I wish that I would have embossed the blue layer above the twine - it's a little plain but I didn't think about it until after it was all put together and I didn't want to rip it all apart.  Next time!  :(

I hope that you will come play along and link up your flower project for a chance to win a Scrappy Moms Stamps set of your choice.

Have a great day!

May The 4th Be With You!

In honor of Star Wars Day I decided to post the pictures of my son's Star Wars Birthday that I forgot to post a couple of years ago.  My bad! :(  

*** Warning - LOTS of pictures.  :)  ****

We named all the food - kind of corny but so much fun!

The goodie bags were Star Wars/space themed...

And finally one of my favorite pictures of my son doing his best Darth Vader impression with the pool noodle light sabers we made for all the kiddos!

Thank you for stopping by today - I hope you felt a little of the force with my party pictures! :)
