Season's Tweetings Fabric Gift Bags:  These measure 7 inches tall and 5 inches wide with a draw string closure.  A set of 6 bags and 6 gift tags are only $10.25.  Add the Seasons Tweetings stamp set for only $6.90 more (see below) a $9.00 savings!

Art Philosophy Ghost

I saw these ghosts people were making cutting cardstock by hand and I remembered a spiral Cricut cut on the Art Philosophy cartridge.  It is actually used to make a 3D flower but it worked out perfect to make an instant ghost!  Using the same cartridge I cut out an "O" shape and cut it in half for his smile, then cut the negative space in half in an arch to make his eyes.  I punched a small hole in the top and used some natural bakers twine to hang from the ceiling.

I used:
Z1686 Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge (page 70, I cut it as large as I could.  I believe it was 11 1/2)
1385 White Cardstock
1386 Black Cardstock
Z1701 Natural Bakers Twine

Items can be found and purchased at

Duck Dynasty: Happy Happy Happy Card

When I was playing around with one of the stamp sets that comes in the September special called You Are My Happy I got an idea!  If you are not familiar with the tv show Duck Dynasty, one of the catch phrases is "Happy, Happy, Happy".  I couldn't help myself I had to make it.  Using different cardstock colors I designed my own camo and added a little jute for an accent.  I love how it turned out and let's face it, it makes me happy, happy, happy when I see it.
Products Used:
Whisper Cardstock
Black Cardstock
Chocolate Cardstock
New England Ivy Cardstock
Olive Cardstock
Black Ink

2013 Fall/Winter Idea Book party Recap

A huge thank you to everyone who came last night.  It was so much fun!  I was so excited to show everyone the new products and I hope everyone enjoyed seeing and playing with them.

At their table place they had the new idea book waiting for them and because the new idea book is so "SWEET" they were also given a candy highlighter, mini post its to mark their idea book and a candy tube to snack on.  (sorry the picture is sideways)
While we waited for everyone to arrive, we perused the new idea book and made our wish lists.  I then talked about some of my favorite new items and shared some artwork I had made.  Here are a few:


We played the alphabet game and Robin and Carole where the big winners!  They were able to choose from different stamp sets and ink colors for their prizes.

We then got our hands inky and made these three projects:

Thanks again for everyone who came!  I will post more details on each project soon!
