What do you think?? Okay, I did add a few more things. but check out how cute each envelope turned out… Starting at the top, with Camp. The fireflies on this are using the Be Dazzling Sale-a-Bration FREE item and the Brilliant Wings dies. The camper was cut off the card front very carefully. Yes, I sure did add a panel to the front to lift off the words and add dimension. Next up is…

    NOOOO Christmas… I did however, find this down in the basement while doing some “cleaning”. Trust me I do NOT like that side! Let me just tell you about this “sign”. It measures 7 1/2 by 37 inches. The outside “frame” is a Mossy Meadow green. I hate to admit that this is as far as it got… HONEST, I have a plan !! I have been fighting with my computer all day and I AM DONE. Just for the day. Tomorrow is a new day. After a quick drop off I will certainly be working on this!! I PROMISE!! Lastly, I will be sending out new class information. WHEN???…

    March it started with $1

    Here is where this begins… Saw this at the Dollar Tree before Christmas. It had hot pink and bright yellow stripes. BUT the sizing was right. Do you grab stuff, come up with ideas and buy… but they sit on the shelf? YUP, this was one of those!! I wish I could remember where this saying came from!! I would happily give them credit. The left is where I started. The right had more impact. Did you know that the retired Large Letter dies are on the clearance rack?? For LESS then $60! Snag those puppies quick! In addition to those dies, grab what you need of the 2018-2020 In…

    Window using Peaceful Boughs

    Remember back in October when we were doing the remodel and I took advantage of Joe having tools out? No?? check here. Here is a second project that was constructed that day. The first, in case you forgot, is the “ladder” that is now in the bathroom, check here. This one measures about 12″ by 12″. The perfect size for any paper crafting project!! It started with a cardinal. In addition to the Cherry Cobbler Diagonal Stripe ribbon, I paired it with the Burlap ribbon. Not using both, but layering one over the other. Using the perfect evergreen colors of Shaded Spruce and Garden Green. Using all three sprig dies…

    Closets, Fairs and Fall

    Last week started kinda slow, but with Joe’s long weekend coming up and moving day creeping in I hope. The closet was all my job. I had the task of figuring out how to put it back. The old way just did not make sense to me! However, I did not want to purchase too much more! Adding one and moving the line of shelves what my first attempt. Making more for dresses and another place to pile things. Ta-DUH!! Joe and I picked up blinds, curtains, new small lamps and even new curtain rods. Although we still need to get trim. With the cooler weather here there are a…
