Summer Fun ATC Challenge

Hi Everyone!!

I've tried my hand at making an ATC for a challenge over at Girls, Giggles, Glitter and Glue. We had several rules to follow -- the most challenging (for me) being we couldn't use decorative paper.

Happy Mother's Day!


A couple of months ago I created a wall hanging. I used the Bohemian Bazaar G45 paper and my Mother fell in love with it. She said that she would love something like it for Mother's Day.

How could I resist?? This is what I came up with!!

Canvas on a budget

Hi my crafty peeps! 

I'm here today with a canvas that I made that was inspired by a sketch over at Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog. Not only did they have a sketch for us we were challenged to use 1 old and 1 new item in our project. I used pearls by the yard for the old and washi tape that I have just received from Pinque Peacock for the new. :-)

Taming the Craftermath

Hello my Crafty Peeps! I'm here today with my final DT Project for The Cutting Cafe. I have had such a GREAT time the past couple of months working with Regina and all of the DT Members -- I just can't believe that the term is coming to an end.....

I have learned so much working with Regina and the group. I have tried new techniques, refined my style and pushed my design style.

Thank you Regina for giving me the opportunity! I hope you enjoy today's project and I hope to work with you again in the future. :-)

So, as I have found myself in a creative whirlwind over the past few months, one thing has become CRYSTAL clear -- I am a messy crafter -- can anyone relate? I tend to pull embellishments that I think I *might* use on a project and have everything laid out in front of me while working on a project. By the time I finish the project I am drowning in my craftermath....Today's project is something that I have put together to try and corral all of my gorgeous bits and pieces.

Philomena's Fairy House

Hi! Thanks for stopping by!!

A lot of times when I create I have a vague idea of what I want the end result to be. Through the process of creating I may, or may not, have a project at the end that matches my original vision. I always enjoy this process and it's results.

This was not one of those times.

I *knew* exactly what I was going to create as soon as I found out that this week's DT project for The Cutting Cafe was the Configuration Box SVG file. Not only could I "see" the end result I had an entire story to go along with it in my head!

Does that happen to you? It was so clear to me! I had such a good time creating this altered book -- I hope you love it as much as I do!!

Spring Tag

Hi! I'm here today with a DT project for The Cutting Cafe. Our inspiration was the color green. :-) When I heard the assignment, was something spring like. I am so over winter this year that I can't wait to see the pretty flowers popping up!! So, I used elements from the Ribbon Tag Shaped Card and created a pretty tag with a beautiful flower collage.

Flower Fun!

Hi Everyone!!

I have been having SO much fun this week playing with The Cutting Cafe's flower files! The two files I used are Paper Flower Template and Cutting File and the Layered Flowers Cutting File. They are so beautiful and go together so easily I just can't stop making them!! Last week you saw some of the flowers topping my inspiration blocks and I'm back today featuring them with a this week's DT project.

The idea for today's project came when I became interested (obsessed) with tags. :-) I've been watching youtube videos and I've been mesmerized by them. I've never made any before and really wanted to try one -- so this is what I made.

A Kiss Goodbye.....

As my lovely and beautiful daughter gets ready to go back to school today, I put together this sweet little treat box from The Cutting Cafe for her. I have been very happy having her home for the past 5 weeks, but the new semester is beginning, so off she goes. I'm hoping that this week's Cutting Cafe DT Project - a super cute treat box - will put a smile on her face when she discovers it tucked into her suitcase!
