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.
