Here is great gift idea. I found this altered letter idea on Pinterest.com using foil to cover. I added my own touch using zippers I found at my local thrift store and also made a rose out of plastic spoons. I found this idea on Pinterest too. On my letter "G" I used a stamp from one of my friends new stamp line called Antiquated Collection by Lisa Pace. I think they came out cool and are very simple to make. Thanks again for stopping by to check out my projects.

I thought I was done with tags, but for a friend I made a few more. She is giving a couple wine basket away for Christmas and wanted some fun tags. I used stamps from Smeared Ink which includes the stamps "Steampunk Sugar Plum Fairy" and on the second tag is 'Sipping Buddy". Both of these stamps make me laugh. On my second tag I used a skeleton stamp for the background by Bombshell Stamps. I think she will get a real kick out of both tags. Thanks for stopping by.

This weeks challenge from Smeared Ink is gothic Christmas. I recently purchased some of their new holiday digi stamps. I saw this idea of making a charm so I decreased the size of the same to fit my charm. This package is for my Granny who I think will get a kick out of this digi stamp title "Drinking Buddy". Very simple and fun to make. I attached jump rings on them so will be very easy to attach to her key ring. Thanks for stopping by!

Thanks for stopping by!

Maya Road. I then covered each piece in cardstock and using my Cricut I cut out these cute little ladybugs in various sizes. I think what really made these ladybugs stand out is I covered them all in red German glass glitter. I also took some jumbo bottle caps from Maya Road and backed with black crepe paper. It all came together so well. Carrie was so excited when she came to pick it up. She said she liked it more than what she had seen online. That made me very happy. Until next time...Happy Birthday Caitlyn!!
It's that time of year again and tag making has begun. I have become known for my tags and if you receive a gift from me during Christmas it very likely you will receive a homemade tag. Here are a few samples I am making this season. I really love the first tag. I will be using it on a gift for my sister-in-law. The stamp is from Kenny K The second tag is using the snowman die cut from Tim Holtz along with some distress inks and snow glitter. The last tag also includes some coloring using distress inks and some awesome embellishments for Maya Road. I will have more samples posted throughout the season. Thanks for stopping by see ya next time!

Welcome back everybody! This weeks challenge at Smeared Ink is steampunk. I couldn't help but use one of their newest images "Steampunk Sugar Plum Fairy". I love this stamp! I brought in some metals elements to help with the steampunk theme. I used some metal for her dress from Ten Seconds Studio and some spinning gears from Tim Holtz. I am really in the middle of making up a lot of Xmas items so I included this in the mix. I hope you like my card and please leave me a comment. I enjoy the feedback. Come back soon will be posting lots of new Xmas projects.

Hey everybody!! Welcome back for another blog hop sponorsed by Smeared Ink. I'm excited about the new released images. I got to use the Steampunk Sugar Plum Fairy. I've started my Christmas projects and knew I had to use her in one. I love the fact that I got to use several elements on this card. I used paper, metal and ribbon all to complete this card. What's really exciting is this card already has a home. It will be traveling to New York City as you are reading this. My sister is taking this with her on her trip to give to her boyfriend's daughter who lives there. I love it when my projects find a home. I'm planning on using this image a couple more times this season be sure to check back on what I create with it.

It's been awhile since I've blogged. I've been super busy. One of things I've been working on is this gift I made for my co-worker. She celebrated the big 40! I found this idea on Pinterest.com. It was submitted from a blog called sistersstuff.blogspot.com. This is my take on the idea. Debbie loved it. I think it came out really cute. I used an old school box covered with scrapbook paper and used my Cricut to cut out my sign. I just blinged it up a little so it showed Debbie's personality. I have a feeling I will be making more of these.

Paper Studio and Reflections which I also bought locally at my craft stores. I loved the idea of taking my skeleton hands and adhereing them to the side so they could hold my pumpkin. The stamp I used today is one I found in a $1.00 bin at Joanns by Inkadinkado. These spiders are amazing. I found them at Michaels along with the witch and cat cupcakes pics in the Martha Stewart section. I love how this all came together and I hope you do too. Please leave me a comment.

Inkadinkado. I just stamped it onto a piece of cardstock and cut out. I found this awesome bottle at The Dollar Tree. It is a bottle of shower gel but thought the size and shape of the bottle was perfect for some sort of toxic potion. I hope you like todays project. See ya back on day 26!

SplitCoastStampers. I thought it was the coolest idea. It shows you exactly how to take a piece of plain cardstock and create this faux leathered look. I used a stamp from Smeared Ink "Faes" set on the front of the clutch. I plan on using this for a girl at work who is very girly girl and fill it up with Halloween treats. When you see the instructions for this it creates a wallet perfect for a gift card. I doubled all the measurements so I came out with this clutch size. Hope you like my project please let me know what you think of it. See ya on day 25!

Smeared Ink "Morbidly Adorable Tarot Set". I love this stamp! I heat embossed it onto a pieces of heavy cardstock. I had some great embellishments made up but when I started adding them it took so much away from the stamp I took them all off. I'm using this as a gift bag tag for a friend who loves skulls. I can't wait to show it to her. See you all on day 18!

Inkadinkado. I cut my witch using my Cricut from the cartridge "A Child's First Year" and covered in micro beads. Ribbon trims are from Maya Road, all remaining embellishments are from Recollections at Michaels, Martha Stewart and Karen Foster. I love how this bag all came together. One of the best things about crafting is not really know what you are making until it all comes together. Alot of my Halloween projects are falling into this category. LOL! Please let me know what you think of my gift bag. See you on day 16!
