Hello! I'm Raquel, it's nice to 'meet' you! I'm excited to present my first Scraptastical Kreations Blog Hop project. 

For my project I used the "Bear with Chocolate Bunny" 'png' image from the "Easter Cuties" file and made a bottle cap necklace with it. Cute, right? The images could be used for lots of things, really. Plus you get more bang for your buck that way. Who doesn't love that?!

To celebrate my first Scraptastical Kreations blog hop, I'm offering the necklace to one lucky hopper! Wanna be entered into the drawing?  Leave a comment on my blog letting me know you'd like a chance to win (leave your contact info in case you are my winner). On Tuesday I'll use to choose a winner. 
Good luck!

You've reached the end of today's hop. Thank you so much for hopping along with us. We hope you've been inspired to join in on the challenge, we can't wait to see what you create!

Easter Treats!

I posted my latest Scraptastical Kreations DT project today and wanted to share it here too.

My youngest son is Autistic and attends a classroom of 8 Autistic children.  His teacher and aides do a hard, but rewarding job so to show our appreciation I always make some kind of treat for holidays and special occasions. When I saw  the Peep-esque style bunny in the "Easter Cuties" cutting file set I knew exactly what I was going to do. I should add that the bunny comes with eyes and nose to cut out  but I was not enjoying the thought of gluing 14 tiny sets of eyes and noses so I drew them on with a Sharpie. lol

Using the bunny and eggs from the "Easter Cuties" set I made gift tags for his classmates Easter gift of candy and bubbles. Then I used the bunny and eggs to make treat topper bags that hold a Peeps bunny. I even made one for his bus drivers using yellow peeps. I figured men would rather have yellow than pink. hehe They all said they loved their treats and I even got a hug from the morning driver. :-)

Thanks for stopping by, I hope I've inspired you today!

Happy St Pattys Day!

As usual I was up til 2am making treats for Daegens classmates and staff. Let's not forget his bus drivers too!  The treats doubled as my latest Scraptastical Kreations design team project. Nice, huh?

For the classroom staff I made "Leprechaun Poop" treats. lol When I came across the poem online I couldn't resist. I created the little packet using my Pazzles Inspiration software and I used the bear leprachaun from the "Pure Luck" cutting file.


I was trying to avoid giving his classmates candy since they get so much of it from other kids. Mustaches are really popular right now so when I found them at Party America and the straws right next to them I decided to make the kids mustache straws. Daegens teacher said the kids had a blast drinking their juice thru them at the St Pattys Day classroom party.

I made these for his two bus drivers. They got a kick out of them, which made me happy.  =)

Thanks for stopping by, I hope I've inspired you today!

I Made The Team!

I am excited to announce that I, along with 7 other scrappy ladies are now the newest members of the Scraptastical Kreations Design Team!  

Lots of thanks to Kristy for believing in me enough to ask me to be a part of her awesome team. I look forward to this new adventure and getting to know my new DT sisters.

I wanted to design something for the occasion so I decided on the "Beary O Bears" pattern found here. We love Super Mario in this house and this set will soon be retiring so I wanted to get my hands on it before it's gone.

 My son Anthony is a BIG Anime fan. He goes to FanimeCon once a year. If you have no idea what I am talking about (I didn't know what it was til 3 years ago lol), Anime fans go to the convention dressed up as their favorite Anime or video game characters. It's quite a show and a great place to people watch. Ant is dressing up as Super Mario this year so I decided to make him some "contact cards" that he can hand out to new friends he makes, as a way for them to contact him later.

I cut the backgrounds at 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" (typical ATC card size). Then cut the characters to fit. Matted them, printed FanimeCon 2013 on the front along with my sons contact info on the back.

The back of the cards

My son loves the "contact cards" and is now planning on learning how to work my cutting machine so he can make some of his own creations such as keychains and he says. lol

Thanks for stopping by and sharing my news as well as checking out my first Scraptastical Kreations project, 
I hope I've inspired you today.
