She’s A Crafter

Earlier this week my daughter asked if she could use my craft supplies to make a gift for a friend. Of course I said yes. Well she went looking through my stuff and found some leftover shop items. So she didn’t make the bookmark but she made the packaging.
If you have teenagers you might have heard of an anime named Hetalia. The characters are all named after countries around the world. So my daughter made a card with the Italian flag for the packaging. According to my daughter her friend is Italy from Hetalia. A custom made package for her friend. Not bad.

Earlier today she asked if she could use my Cricut. She is slowly taking over my craft room. I guess I need to find a work table for her.

Snowman Soup

It was really chilly here in Fresno today and my favorite thing to do on chilly days is to cuddle up on the couch, watch a movie and drink hot chocolate. As I was drinking my hot chocolate it reminded me of Snowman Soup. So I decided to make some.  Unfortunately I had to use two different types of ribbon. I didn’t realize I didn’t have enough of the plaid ribbon. But besides that little mishap I like the way they turned out. Simple and cute!

Christmas Cards #5

This is my last and final Christmas card share. Only because I forgot to take pics of the rest and they’ve been sent out already. Oh well!
Here we have a card that I made for a friends little boy. I thought it would be cute if he received his own card. I used the Create A Critter Cricut cartridge to cut out this adorable little penguin. I added some goggle eyes to give him some quirkiness and if you flick him he wobbles. I played with him for about 10 minutes before I sent him out. I couldn’t help myself.

So there you have it. I hope you have enjoyed my cards and I can’t wait to get started on other projects to share with you all. Thanks for stopping by.

Christmas Cards #4

Happy Saturday everyone. It’s been a good day. I finished my Christmas shopping and now it’s time to start baking. mmm
I have a couple of cards today that I have made using digi stamps from I have to say that these cards are my favs so far.
Here we have Fairy Twinkles. Isn’t she cute? I’m not sure if this digi was meant for Christmas or not but she’s so cute I had to use her. I colored her with Artist Loft colored pencils from Michael’s and I’m really beginning to see a difference in my coloring. In a good way that is.  Once again I used last years paper from Recollections Bright and Jolly paper pad. Added some green Stickles and some red bling.

This cutie pie is named Sweet Angel. The name fits doesn’t it? I also colored her with Artist Loft Pencils and used papers from the same paper pack as above. She’s so sweet!

I hope everyone is having a fantastic weekend. See you all soon.

Christmas Cards #3

Time to share some more cards.
On the first card I used a free cut of the week from  and cut it out using the Cricut Craft Room and my Cricut machine. I added some bling randomly around the card to give a bit of sparkle.
On the second card I used papers from last years Recollections Bright and Jolly paper pad. Added some ribbon and a simple greeting and just like that I was done.

I am so close to finishing all the cards that I'm beginning to get a bit sad. It’s so much fun making Christmas cards that I’m thinking of making them all year round. Don’t worry I won’t mail them out until Christmas. Thanks for stopping by.

Christmas Cards #2

I have a couple of more cards to share.So far these are my favorites.

For both cards I used the Christmas Cheer svg cut file from I love the way the Christmas tree turned out. But for some reason it reminds me of Charlie Browns Christmas. hmmm. I added some Recollections Glitz to the ornaments and star to make it more festive. Can't have Christmas without glitter.

On this cute cross eyed guy I used my Cuttlebug with the Divine Swirls embossing folder to emboss some swirls around his feet to make it look like snow. I also added some Glitz to the edges of the trees to give it some sparkle. And lastly a little red gem on his nose.

The cards were so much fun to make and I still have some more cards to make from this collection.

For those of you who have cutting machines go check out They have some really cute and fun svg files.

Thanks for stopping by.

Christmas Cards

I’ve been working very hard on making my Christmas cards this year. Here is a sampling of a few cards I have made.
The papers are from last years DCWV Christmas pack. The greeting and nativity are from Hero Arts clear stamps “Greatest Gift” set. I embossed the greeting with Recollections Metallic Silver embossing powder.
I really love this stamp set. It’s what Christmas is really all about. Love it!

I’m half way done with making my cards. I didn’t realize how many cards I had to make. I’m having a blast making them though. So no worries. I will be posting some more pics later this week.  Thanks for stopping by.

More Halloween Cards

Here’s a couple of more cards I would like to share.
First up is the cutie pie Witchy Tia from She’s so adorable!
On the second card we have the pretty Hallo Witch from The Greeting Farm.
I used digi stamps on both cards and colored them with Artist Loft colored pencils from Michael’s. I used Turpeniod to help blend in the colors. Papers are last years collections from Recollections and K&Company.

I’ve been having so much fun making cards that sometimes I forget to make dinner. That’s what takeout is for right?
Thanks for stopping by.

Halloween Projects

Yay! I finally bought batteries.
Here is my very first table runner. I had some left over fabric from last year and just pieced them all together. It makes me nervous to try any kind of surface quilting so I just didn’t do it. Do you know what the best part of this project was? My husband actually liked it. Yay for me!

Next I made a card. I love this card! I used  K&Company and Recollections paper from last year and die cuts from The little bat is a clear stamp from Recollections. Have I mentioned I love this card? Hmm, I might just keep it.

I hope everyone’s Halloween projects are in full bloom. I can’t wait to get started on Christmas projects. Thanks for stopping by.

It's October!

Yay it's October! I love the fall. The leaves are changing, the World Series is coming(GO YANKEES!), and it's time to start eating. My favorite time of the year.

I've been busy making Halloween crafts and I would post pictures for you but my camera went dead. I'll post them as soon as I get new batteries. One item I made is a Halloween table runner. I'm very proud of it. And the second item is of course a card. I'm also making Halloween goodie bag toppers and tags. And yes more cards. You never know who will be getting a card from me.

 I hope everyone is enjoying the whether change and see you soon. But until then enjoy a bit of Charlie Brown.

And Yet Another Birthday Card

Today's card I'm sharing is for niece who will be celebrating her 18th birthday next week. Where did the time go? It's seems just like yesterday that I will catch her in my room coloring the walls with my make-up. Good times!

For this card I used The Glitter Sweet matstack from DCWV. I love the colors on this plaid cardstock. It's very girly. I made the flower and tag with the Cricut cartridge George and Basic Shapes. I cut the flower at 3", 2 1/2", 2" and 1 1/2" and layered them on top of each other for a layered effect. The "Happy Birthday" is from the clear stamp set "Greetings" from TPC Studios. I made a matching envelope by adding matching paper to front and I used a scallop border punch from EK Success. The small paper flower was made with Spellbinders Megabilities Die Rose Creations.

Overall I really like the way this card turned out. Simple and sweet. My husband did mention that I will never be able to buy a store bought card anymore. When I asked why he said "When they open their cards they will say What the hell is this!' So no more store bought cards for me. And that's okay!
Thanks for stopping by.

Another Birthday Card

It's the season of birthdays here in the Tiffany house hold. Today I will be sharing a birthday card for my daughter's friend.

I used the Cricut Create A Critter cartridge for the cupcake and "happy birthday". The cupcake actually wobbles! Isn't that cute?  The background paper is from Michael's Recollection paper pack "Bright and Basic".  I also decorated the envelope to match the card.  Just add some paper that you use on the card and a bow and VOILA a matching envelope.

I love making cards. They're so much fun to make. I can't wait to make cards for Halloween and treat bags. YAY! Thanks for stopping by.

Fresno State Card

Happy Saturday! I have a card to share with you today. My nephew's birthday was last month and I wanted to make him a nice card. I hardly make anything for my nephew. It's hard for me to make things for boys. It always comes out girly. Since he goes to Fresno State and is in Phi Delta Theta I decided to make him a card with both logos.

For the Phi Delta Theta logo I used the Cricut Greek Digital cartridge and cut them out a 1 inch. For the Fresno State letters I used a jpeg image and used my SCAL2 software to cut it out. Those were cut at 4 inches. 

These was a very simple card to make but he loved it. Which makes me very happy. Thanks for stopping by and "GO BULLDOGS!"

Thanks!-Monkey Card

Hello everyone! It's been way too long. After 6 months I am finally settled into my new home. Now it's time to get back to crafting and sharing my projects.

In the beginning of July me, my daughter, niece and mom took a drive to San Diego to visit my sister. My sister loves to show us all the awesome sights in San Diego. She drove us everywhere while we were there. We had some fish and chips and then she took us to Extraordinary Desserts. If you are in the San Diego area you must go there. It was delicious! The next day we all went to the San Diego Zoo. It was so much fun. Since it's the year of the dragon the zoo had some amazing Chinese acrobat shows. And since my daughter loves the Chinese culture, she was in heaven. But our favorite part of the zoo was the Pandas. They're just too cute!

I decided to make my sister a thank you card and I just now got around to it. Bad me! I get lazy! Well anyway here is what I made her.

I used my Create a Critter Cricut Cartridge and papers from the DCWV Animal Crackers paper pad. They went together perfectly. The "Thanks!" stamp is from TPC Studios Greetings clear stamp set. I had so much fun making this card. I hope she likes it.
