Happy Monday all! I would like to sayTHANKS to Sabrina from Scrappin' with Sabrina for passing me the Butterfly Award. I am so honored that you thought of me! Please stop over and check out her awesome blog. She is a very talented and creative :) Thanks again, Sabrina!

It's a Beautiful Day!

Hello Everyone,

Hard to believe it's fall like weather already. I want my summer back, LOL!  It's time for another challenge over at Whimsical Wednesday.  I didn't want to miss the fun and I was hoping it would help get me in the mood for fall.  The challenge at Whimsical Wednesday  is Fall Colors "and" to create a  handmade embellishment on your project. I was a bit stumped on this handmade embellishment challenge and just not coming up with anything..total brain freeze. So, hope this works!

I started out with some seam binding ribbon and added some adhesive to it. I then folded and gathered the ribbon to create a pretty ribbon border. I took the ribbon and went around a pencil to form a little flower like embellishment to match.


For my card I cut the tree from the Create A Critter cartridge at 3" plus the layers. I added some orange peel stickles to the card to pop it out a bit along with a little embossing on the trunk of the tree. The banner is from Spellbinders-Ribbon Banners and the sentiment is from BugBites~All Year Round set. Hope you like it:)


Thanks for visiting and have a Great weekend!

Link Up Love Party With K Andrew

Hello Everyone,

It's the third Tuesday of the month and that means it's Link Up Love Party time over at Getting Cricky. The Link Up the Love Party with K Andrew is a great way to meet new bloggers and find inspiration from amazing projects!

Here's out it works:
  • Link Up Party runs from Tuesday 9/20 to Tuesday 9/27. Winners announced 10/3
  • Grab the Getting Cricky blinky and post on your blog's sidebar
  • Be a follower of Getting Cricky
  • Create a new blog post that is titled Link Up Love Party with K Andrew. In your post, you must mention that the link up love party is a way to get to know each other and find new blog inspiration, mention my blog, with a link back to Getting Cricky
  • Post your favorite project that you've done in your blog for HALLOWEEN
  • Copy and paste the link up code into your blog post so the Inlinkz will show up on your blog
  • Spread the word so everyone can join in!
  • You must visit, follow, and comment on the 5 people before you AND the 5 people after you in the Inlinkz. It would be fantastic if you would visit as many as you can--maybe everyone? If you are one of the first 5 then you will need to blog the ones before you and a few more after--as long as it's a minimum of 10 near you in the link up
  • If you do not do the above your link will be deleted, because it's just not fair to those who work so hard linking up and showing love to the ones on the list. I have two moderators who will be checking this out to keep it awesome and fun!
Here is my card for the party:


A creepy card for ya! I made this card from the Mini Monsters cartridge and cut this creature at 3" plus the layers. The "BEWARE" is cut at 2". I added some fun green tulle and a black ribbon to add some cuteness to this card. so, what do you think? I actually love this cartridge.

I also made some yummy jam with my daughter who stopped over with a 5 gallon pail of fresh blueberries.  Oh my goodness, these were so good! I ended up making about 8 jars of blueberry/rhubarb jam so I am adding this to my gift package as well. I wrapped the jar with the same pattern paper, added some tulle, button  and tag. The sentiment is again from My Craft Spot and I used SU punches for the tag and for on top of the jar.

I wish I could give ya' all some.....sure your mouth is watering by now, ha? Sorry for the teasing...LOL! Have a great fall day and thanks for stopping!!

Halloween Party Favor Idea

Hello Everyone,

I hope your week is starting off great. It's hard to believe we are half way into September already. Where does the time go? 

 I can't believe how cool the mornings have been. The air is so crisp, leaves are just a changing. Such a pretty time of year here:) I am hoping to get out this weekend and take some pictures!

Well, I wanted to share a quick, inexpensive treat/party favor with you. It has many possibilities but I made it for Halloween and thinking of making them for all my co-workers or for some of the little goblins that will be knocking on my door real soon.


These little tube containers were about .88 each. I filled them with candy corn (which is a weakness for me this time of year) and topped it off with a cute witch that I cut from the Mini Monster cartridge at 3 3/4 and her layers. I used My Creative Time ~scallop and stitched circle die and the sentiment is from BugBites ~All Year Round Stamp Set. I tied on some decorative fibers and voila...done.  Quick, easy and  inexpensive! Just be sure to buy an extra bag of candy because if your like me...you defiantly will eat candy corn while your making these, lol! Have fun making them!

Entering this over at Decorate to Celebrate ~Anything goes challenge

Coffee filter flower tutorial

Hi Everyone,

I thought I would share a quick tutorial on the flower I made last week on one of my cards that I posted. I have been asked by several people so here you go:)

Start out with a couple cone coffee filters and some glimmer mist. I used Tattered Angel glimmer mist.Colors~Jingle Bells, Granite and Candy Apple Red.

Spray in on both sides and then let it fry. To speed the drying process I used my heating gun and it dried in a matter of a couple minutes.
Then use your SU scallop punch and punch out 4 which will give you 8 because your punching through both layers. Do that on all of the filters.

I then pierced a whole in the center of all layers so that I could put a brad in the center.

Then just start gathering the scallop towards the center, folding, pinching and turning. Do that with each layer, Don't be afraid to pinch it tightly because it will all feather out at the end.

I just kind of gently work the flower down a little and it forms into this beautiful flower. Pretty
ha:) ~this is Granite
That shimmery glimmer mist shows up so nice on the red:) ~this is Candy Apple Red.
Check out the yellow~this is Jingle Bells. Love them all and they are SO easy!!!


I hope you find time and make one. You will love them and you will want to put them on everything, LOL! I seen this on a video but I can not for the life of me remember who's blog I saw it on. So, I do apologize for not being able to give the credit to who it belongs to. I was just so inspired and I hope you are too:)

Hope it wasn't too long for you.....first tutorial :)

Speaking of fall.....you know that Halloween is right around the corner so my project that I am going to share with you is just that. Hope you enjoy it!


I found this adorable witches hat on the Mini Monsters cartridge and used my gypsy to weld into a shaped card. I cut it at fit to page which was 7 1/4 plus all the layers. I embossed the accent pieces with the polka dots and spots folder.

The cute spider is from the Happy Haunting cartridge cut at 5". I added a little stitching, some ribbon and a prima flower at the top and a little lace at the bottom of the hat.  The sentiment is from  My Creative Time ~One of her new sets~All around Halloween set.

I am entering this in the following challenges:
1.) Cricut Cardz ~Challenge #90~Card Crazy~Make a card using the card feature
2.) More Than Favors Wacky Wednesday ~Challenge #49 Halloween

Thinking of you

Hello Everyone,

There is a fun challenge going on over at Celebrate the Occasion. This weeks challenge is to follow the sketch below to create a project and post by September 4th. Still some time to join in the fun:)


Here is what I came up with:


This is a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card base and base layer at 4 1/8 x 5 3/8. I cut the accent leaves from the Holiday Cakes cartridge at 1 1/2 and the border is from a Martha Stewart border punch. I used some seam binding ribbon, gathered it up and used my sewing machine to make a stitch through the ribbon.

I made this gorgeous flower from a cone coffee filter along with some glimmer mist, let it dry and then use your 1 3/4 scallop punch to punch out a total of 8 scallops. Put a brad through the center of all 8 and gather and pinch it up towards the center of the brad.  I seen this on someones blog and I am so sorry for not remembering who's it was~it turned out beautiful!!  You just gotta try making one~you will be hooked after you do:)

Thanks for visiting!
