If you're looking for some super quick and easy place card holders to make for your Christmas dinner tonight, this isn't them. :) But, these are just the cutest red trucks bringing you some Christmas cheer. These trucks are made using the Ride With Me stamp set and Truck Ride dies Bundle. Actually, these come together fairly quickly with a hot glue gun, but you probably won't have time to make a dozen of these for everyone arriving in the … [Read more...] about Merry Christmas!

Hello Friday! It's been a busy week around here getting ready for a couple more events this month. Today I'm sharing one of the make & takes that I'll have at the Just Crop Retreat tomorrow. This make & take uses the Harvest Hellos stamp set and the brand new Mini Curvy Keepsake box. We had a similar treat box called the Curvy Keepsake a couple years ago and it was super popular. The Mini version is about half the size of the other … [Read more...] about Harvest Hellos

Here in the US, we are enjoying a long weekend celebrating Labor Day today. I realize we still have another three weeks of Summer and in SoCal we actually have hot weather right up til Halloween. But, Labor Day typically signifies the unofficial end of summer since school typically starts around this time. Both kids are back in school now. College started a couple weeks ago for my oldest and my baby is a High School Senior this year. I … [Read more...] about A Bit of Seaside
I can't tell you how thrilled I was to see another stamp set in the Catalog with craft supplies. The Follow Your Art Suite has just the cutest combination of craft supplies and pattern paper. I had die cut a bunch of extra pieces for the card in a box I shared on Wednesday and I still had a bunch of those mini clipboards sitting around. I knew the clipboard would be perfect for a smaller version of the card in a box. I used the same mini … [Read more...] about Follow Your Heart
Last year sometime (or maybe it was the year before?), I found these mini clipboards on sale at a local craft store. So of course I bought half a dozen of them even though I had no idea what I was actually going to do with them. I knew I needed them because they were on sale.

Only five … [Read more...] about Daisy Lane
