Pocket Letters!

I really need to start blogging more often. I used to be so good at keeping it up.

As I may have mentioned in the past, I am in a swap group on Facebook. There is a monthly swap held there. A couple months ago we did Pocket Letters. Ya know, the latest paper crafting craze. They are lots of fun. I had never done them before, heck never even heard of them before that but I went for it and jumped in the fire. I decided to do what I call a "scene" page using background pages from DCWVs "All Dolled Up" stack and Julie Nutting Prima Doll Stamps. I will post those at the end of this.

I wanted to do some more Pocket Letters so I found a group on Facebook, "Pocket Letters Pals", then I found the website of the same name. I joined a Halloween PL swap. It had to be sent out 5 days later which I kinda liked because it pushed me to get on it right away.

I used We R Memory Keepers "Heebie Jeebies" paper collection. Paper, die cuts, stickers and stamps. I also used an Impression Obsession die for the jar or eyeballs and I made the charms hanging off the side. I just love how it turned out  & I hope my partner does too.

These are my first Pocket Letters that I did for the swap I was in.

Awesome SVG Giveaway Entries!























Awesome SVGs had a Halloween Treat Box Blog Hop that I hopped last weekend. It was great, I  saw lots of cool creations. Click  HERE  if you wanna check it out.

 They are giving away prizes. To enter the giveaway they want you to make a Halloween treat container, so here's mine.

I used my Cricut to make the Hello Kitty (Hello Kitty Greetings) and Ghost (Create A Critter 2) treat bags. The skull is a Cuttlebug die. Super easy and fun to make, they are my entries for the giveaway......

Just a couple more tumblers I made.....

This first tumbler I made for my friends birthday gift. I included a Starbucks gift card with it. She is a good friend from junior high, we reconnected several years ago.  She made my day when she opened it. She said she had seen my tumblers on my FB page and hoped I'd make her one. How awesome is that?!



And this is my latest creation, a birthday gift for my sister Michelle. She along with her husband and son ride Ducati motorycles and she is really proud of that, so I thought this would be perfect for her.
She said it was her favorite gift! 
What a compliment! Makes me a happy crafter.

Another awesome Paper Girls swap.......




In June we swapped birthday cards for a child. Boy or girl, our choice. So I did half and half. My original thought was to use real Popsicle sticks but I thought it might look weird having them glued to the back of the card so I used a woodgrain background stamp Versamark ink. I like the results. The Popsicle SVG is from the Summer Treats collection at Lettering Delights. I added the faces and speech bubbles to their card base.


The boy cards....


        and the girls..........

Miriams Crafting Blog Challenge #2

Miriams challenge for this month is to make a something using buttons. I made this birthday card for an online friend and mailed it off to her with a custom tumbler I made as well. She really liked the card and I hope you do too!

You can learn how to submit your own project here: Miriams Crafting Blog Challenge #2





I know it's only got one button, but I thought it was too cute not to share. lol


I love vinyl!

I discovered vinyl recently.......it's officially an obsession. lol I've done a couple home decor projects and more recently picked up some outdoor vinyl so I could do some graphics for my car but instead I've been having fun making custom tumblers instead. These are the ones I made so far.....the first two tumblers were end of the school year gifts for my sons bus drivers, the last one was a birthday gift for a friend. Then I made a coffee mug for my friend Linda who is a HUGE fan of the Time Bandit of Deadliest Catch fame. I made a custom jar for my cousins awesome homemade bbq sauce, now I need to make HIM one.

*Looks around the house to see what I can vinyl up next! lol*

New Swap Stuffs!




I'm in another fabulous swap in the new "Paper Girls" swap group on Facebook. There were two again this month so I gave them both a try.....altered clothespins and Project Life filler cards. I don't do Project Life but I might eventually so I figured why not. lol

I am in love with Graphic 45's "On The Boardwalk" collection. It's an oldie but a goodie. Summer's coming so I was inspired to use that line for my pins. Of course I had to be a dork and do them all different which seemed to take forever. Next time I'm making em all the same.



These are my project life cards. I used an A*Muse stamp set on them and a Lori Whitlock file for the postcard base, the heart is a wood veneer I ordered online. I was really happy with how well the white A*Muse embossing powder works.

During my search for Minnie Mouse images I fell in love with this  vintage Minnie. I just had to make something featuring her and all her vintage cuteness. A coordinating bottle cap necklace and earring set fit the bill!

I was having so much fun, I decided to make a couple more. So for my Pixar project I made a Monsters, Inc themed necklace. The bead on the bottom reminds me of some kind of freaky monster eye and my boyfriend really liked it on there so how could I say no?! lol




 I just LOVE Monsters, Inc. and the image is from one of my favorite scenes between Boo and "Kitty".....
