Guest Spot for My Craft Spot

Today I am on My Craft Spot continuing my guest spot for their October release. I made a cute little 3d fry box and dressed it up like a santa claus. I again didn't have any candy in the house so I decided it would be cute filled with sticky notes, flags etc. for a planner buddy.

I am really into the planner thing right now and all the cute sticky notes, page flags etc. and why not put those in a treat box for a friend!!

I used the adorable Tiny Tags Christmas and the Tiny Tags dies. LOVE them so much!!! I used a red ink to stamp the sentiment. Tied it with some Simply White twine from Timeless Twine. So simple but so cute!!

3d Christmas with My Craft Spot

Today I am joining in with My Craft Spot on a 3d Christmas Challenge. Be sure to stop over and join in as well. You could win a Gift Certificate to purchase some of Kimberly's awesome stamps. This release was full of wonderful sets and wonderful sentiments.

I decided I would make a 3d Christmas tree because the sentiments from O Holy Night were calling my name! I used a cut file from the silhouette store "3d Tree box" #36408. I didn't have any candy to put inside (can you believe that? That is a crime right there!) so I decided it would be a gift box to give some of my button flair away!

I used a tag that I had from the silhouette store and also the little scalloped round image to make spots for my sentiment.

Attached the little round scallop on the front of the box and attached the tag with some Simply white Twine from Timeless Twine.

Don't forget stop by My Craft Spot to check out all the great stamps sets she has and also join in on the challenge!

Planning and stamping

Today I am on Timeless Twine doing maybe what seems like not much but its the start of my planner I just got. I haven't wanted to write in it I am a bit of a hoarder and somewhat of a "preserver" I guess you would say. I love things in their new pristine condition but what is the point of a planner that I don't use. So I am wanting to start to decorate it a bit and although this doesn't look like much I have to get in my planner groove. I am very new to "decorating" a planner. I have always loved planners, I have always had several plus notebooks to jot my thoughts or ideas in. 

I keep several by my side all the time. While watching tv I may get an idea on a project or brainstorm and doodle/sketch what I am going to do. I also get ideas for what to make for new paperclips. 

So my dear friend who I adore more than I can put into words ordered me a Erin Condren for my birthday!!! So this beauty is getting a start. I am breaking her in slowly but I know once I get the initial start it will get easier. There is so much to get yet. Loads of washi is what I plan to get now. I would like to get the skinnies. 

But you can see with Bella Creationz new "PlanNERD" and "PlanNERD 2" sets she has thought of alot of the things us planners like to use and create a great stamp set. I love the little squiggly that I stamped on one of the bookmarks. The other bookmark has lines so I stamped the "Currently" on it so I could make a list of things that are going on right now I need to work on. 

The other stamp I am in love with is on set 2 and it is the stamp that you can write your project down on, date it is due and then checkoffs for all the social media sites so that you can keep track of where you shared it or what ones you still need to share on. I love that to death!!!

And then these cute little flags. I need to get some better inks to stamp colors with. I have alot of distress inks and I didn't care for the way they came out so I used a few of the CTMH pads I had.

I used the Autumn splendor twine to make some cute fringes for my bookmarks and then also added some to a paperclip to create a little decorative clip.

Autumn splendor is on sale this month so you should grab it. It is super cheap for a whole spool its only $4.50!

Grab the Plannerd stamp sets too while your at it. More stamp sets are in the shop and more coming so stay tuned for new releases!!!

Spooky Treats & Invites for Snap Click Supply



Its that time again to share a project for Jessica Sprague and Snap Click Supply Co. I am sharing a quicker project this time because this month has been crazy busy but this will show you that even if you are busy you can whip up some cute little treat holders, invites and tickets for a kids halloween party super fast.

I used my Silhouette Cameo and several different kits which I will reference below. The little witches hat sucker treat holders went together super easy and I love the way they turned out. I opted to use a star and a bat from Carina Gardner's kit "SPOOKY" instead of the star that came with the file.

So I just did a print and cut of the star and bat with the Silhouette program. I used elements from the Echo Parks "CHILLINGSWORTH" to cut a cut invitation and tickets. I also cut a little "wicked" tag from the collection as well and finished it all off by tying some Timeless Twine in the new solid orange and solid black.  I just love this collection even though it has been out awhile I still use it a ton!


The pattern I used for the base of the Witches Treat Holder was Carina Gardner's from the "SPOOKY" collection. Here is a pic of the paper. I printed a whole sheet of it and a whole sheet of a pattern from Chillingsworth to cut my treat holders out. 






The little invite prints basically everything you need and you just have to use a stamp or hand write the details inside. 



 I hope you get some inspiration from this project! Be sure to visit SNAP CLICK SUPPLY CO. there is so much great designers and digital kits, cut files and more!

PRODUCTS USED:
Silhouette file for Treat holders: #62960 & #50746

Simple but Sweet

Today I am on Timeless Twine and I am sharing a very quick but cute treat holder you could make when you need to give the kiddies something cute or someone else.

I used the clear candy holders that I got from Bella Creatonz. I just die cut a cute dracula file and used a cute blinged out bat sticker and sequins from the Bella Creationz Halloween embellishment kit. I also used the paper from it to make the tag.

There is loads of stuff in this kit and it is only $10.50 so you should nab one. I popped some junior mints (one of my fav) candies in the holder. Used some of the new Solid Black twine and you got yourself a cute gift.

The sentiment is from Cardz TV "Spooky Sayings" set.

SHERRI!!!!

Here is what Sherri said
Sherri please contact me with your information so I can pass it along to Kimberly. Congratulations!!

Fall be in the air!

Today I am sharing a project for Cardz TV Gallery blog. I loved a sticker a fellow DT member had and decided I liked it so much I was going to make a svg file of it. So I set out to create it with various shapes and drawing in my Silhouette program. I love that program.

I recently updated my software after holding out a long time I thought it might be ok. Well I think the program is still awesome but now my print and cut is off and not getting clean cuts on it so now I need to figure out how to fix that.

I ended up just using various fall colored papers I had in my stash but I wanted to create a boy and a girl scarecrow. The sentiment was perfect for it. This is from one of Mary's new sets called "Just Saying" 

I used some Timeless Twine in Olive Green to make little bows for her hair. I used the new Solid Orange and natural twine to make an accent bow. The papers are from various paper pads that are older and any solid colors are AC Cardstock.

The Gable box is from Bella Creationz. I hope you enjoyed my project. It is so fall inspired.
