If the CROWN Fits

Here is my card for the card club November 2010. The theme this month was bling and to be honest I had a hard time this month. It took me forever to decide what I was going to make and then once I had an idea we had our first snow, a huge storm and lost power. So I actually put these cards together via oil lamp. I was lucky enough to have everything cut our before the power went out.
The card is precut CTMH and the cuts are all from Once Upon a Princess. I love this cart but I haven't used it much yet. It made sense to use it for a bling theme. The stamp is also CTMH Happy Endings C1343.

Santa Hat Treat Box

How cute is this? I was in a treat box swap over a year or more ago and this is one of the files. I have no idea who actually made the cut file because they were just all uploaded and downloaded as a zip.

Anyway, I can't give proper credit but I don't want to take credit either.
So, I just cut it out and added some pre-made embelisments. Super cute! My pictures came out bad but I can't retake them because I already gave it away. Isadora and I baked some cookies that had santa faces on them and then I wrapped them up and stuck them inside. Quick, easy and yummy gift. If anyone wants the file just leave a comment or email me posterday at gmail dot com and I will send it to you. Thanks for looking.

Snow Friends Card

I haven't posted anything in a while because I have been super busy with a swap. I can't post any pictures from that yet because it isn't over for a few more weeks. I wouldn't want to spoil it for my partner. However, here is a little card I made for the October 2010 card club. I use DCWV pre-cut blue glittler cards and cut the snow couple from Snow Friends. The sentiment stamp is CTMH Wonderful Season Set C1293 and the inside of the card say "a Wonderful Holiday Season". The faces I stamped with Peachy Keen Stamps, I can't remember the set but I think it was the rag doll set. It was the only set I had that sort of worked for this.

Pumpkin Ghost House

Is this guy super cute or what? I found this along with the coffin at M's and YES ok I am pretty sure this is a kids craft. It was unfinished wood like the coffin also. He was just so cute I couldn't pass it up. So all I did was paint it. It was a little tricky to get inside but I was lucky and have some really long skinny paint brushes. The ghost is a little stuffed guy and he just tucks down into the chimney. I am not sure what you do with him though. I am pretty sure he is just decor. Well at least that is what he is now. lol

SPOOKY Wordbook

I am having such a great time working on Halloween projects. I love this time of year and now that they have all the Halloween themed things out in stores, I have gone a little crazy. I have bought more paper than I think I will ever use!

This wordbook was so much fun to make and super easy. The book is cut with Base Camp, and I used SYI and Mini Monsters (finally got to play with this cart a little more and I LOVE it) for all the cuts inside. I don't know what the paper is that I used because I received it a while ago in a swap and there is no brand on it. I thought it was really cute Halloween paper and it worked perfect for this book.

Halloween Coffin

In case you didn't know Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. I am not sure why but it has been since I was kids. Maybe the candy, the costumes who knows but I love it!

I found these cute little coffins at M's. They come bare wood and you can paint them or cover them with paper. Anything you want really! I painted this one with normal acrylic paint on the inside and the outside and then just dressed it up a little with some stamps, ribbon and 3-d stickers. The Do Not Enter on the front I cut from Mini Monsters. I just got this cart and I love it but I haven't used it much yet! Super cute and easy. I think kids would have a great time making these!

It is here! After some back and forth with the post office and trip to a different PO location I have my amazing swap from Jen. I really want to thank her because not only did she do an amazing job on the hand-made items she clearly really took the time to figure out my likes. Everything is perfect and I love it all. See for yourself!

B - The picture doesn't even do this journal justice. I love it and the quote book is awesome because I am always looking for things online.

P - An assortment of my favorite cardstock and this beautiful, BEAUTIFUL frame with a picture of Isadora in it.

A - Again, my favorite adhesive and I can't wait to hang this altered wood P in my scrap room once we move!

M - The metals are awesome, two packs of butterflies and the other package is baby themed which is perfect for the things I am working on right now. The maganet page is very cool. It is already hanging on the fridge. This is such a cute idea, it is laminated to work like a dry erase, so cool!
I have wanted the Pop Culture boarder embossing folders forEVER! Thank you so much. The altered clothes pin is sO pretty.

My very first Spellbinders product ever! I know right? I look at these all the time online and always wanted to try them. I am super excited to try this out. Now I can blame it on Jen when I start buying more of these! lol The can is so cute I can't open it!

Home Sweet Home ATC

I haven't done many ATCs but I always see them when I am surfing around on different message boards and I love them. So I signed up for a ATC swap with a "Home Sweet Home" theme. The hostess is very flexible and left "Home Sweet Home" to the creators own interpretation. I have seen some that the other ladies have created and they are amazing! I sort of went with a vintage look. I am not sure that was the "plan" but that is how it came out. I used LP in White Opal and when it was all done I sprayed the whole thing with Pearl Glimmer Mist. The sentiment says "A house is made of walls and beams A home is built with love and dreams." I love this quote and if you have been following my blog for a while you might have seen this post!

Cricut Card Fairy Back to School Blog Hop

Welcome to the Cricut Card Fairy Back to School Blog Hop! You should have arrived here from Beejay's Blog but if you didn't you can go back to Caitlynsmommy where the hop starts. Thank you for joining us!

Do you need some last minute back to school ideas? How about ideas on scrapping those school pictures? Just like the school themed items? Then do we have a great bunch of inspiration for you! So sit back, relax, grab a drink and snack and enjoy the Second Cricut Card Fairy Back to School Blog Hop!

Our second blog hop is sponsored by the very talented and generous Regina from CUTTING CAFE. She cranks out amazing designs almost daily. She is also very generous. She has donated a great grand prize for this blog hop AND gave us fairies images to work with! For my project I used the All About School Set. You can visit her site at the link above to see all her great stamps.

EDIT: If you would like the cut file for this book you can download it here. I would love to see what others do with this book. I cut each letter with chipboard, and then cut the letters again with patterned paper. The first time you cut the letters normal and the 2nd time you put you patterned paper face down on the mat so that you can cover the back of the chipboard letter. If anyone has any questions just let me know.
I decided to do a "School Days" word book. I cut it out using the E, Base Camp and My Community. I used Close To My Heart Ink and markers in Star Spangled Blue, Holiday Red and Goldrush. All the digi stamps are from the Cutting Cafe.

No blog hop is complete with Candy so here it is...

Cuttlebug Alpha Set Curls and Swirls
Making Memories Flower Shop Collection in Pink
Dye Based Ink Pad in Fuchsia
Rainbow Ink Pad

I will use random.org on September 6th to select a winner. All you need to do to be entered is leave a comment on my blog and visit all the other ladies in the hop, check out their awesome creations and leave each one a comment.

Notcard Purse

I was strolling though Wal-Mart a few days ago and noticed they had all the school supplies out. I didn't really have need but thought I would take a look anyway. I saw these little boxes in several colors. I am not even sure what they are for. The aren't big enough for pencils but just the right size for note cards. I grabbed a couple thinking for sure I could find a way to alter them into something cute. So I started playing with this one. I just cut the letters out from George and butterflies from Storybook, stickled them, because let's face it I can't make anything without stickes, and added a strap to make it look like a little purse. I punched each side and added an eyelet and then tied the ribbon on the inside. This was quick and easy but I think it came out cute. I have a few more that I bought with this one but I think I am going to go back and see if I can get a few more. I think this would be a great quick and easy gift when I don't have lots of time to work on something.

Give Thanks Canvas

I have been busy, really busy but I did manage to finish a few things. The first one I love! I have been working on several of these as gifts. Some are for family and so they are more personal but this one I really love. Fall is just around the corner and it is such a fun time of year I think because I LOVE Halloween! This is an altered canvas I used the cricut and stretch your imagination cartridge. While I was working on this I had an idea to do all four seasons! Thanks for looking

SMC Challenge - Christmas

Here is my card the Sew Many Cards Challenge this week. The theme was Christmas and I thought this stamps was so cute! Wow I just made in with minutes to spare. Nothing like waiting until the last minute! The picture didn't come out all that great for some reason.
