Happy Monday! I'm back today with another Daffodil Daydream stamp set and the FREE Daffodil Afternoon paper. This project is one of the mini Paper Pumpkin boxes with a decorated cover. The mini Paper Pumpkin boxes are food safe so you can put cookies, brownies, candy, etc inside your box. I made this project really simple so it would be easy to recreate. The front panel is just glued to the lid of the box. The ribbon is wrapped around the … [Read more...] about Hello!
Happy Christmas Eve! Tonight Santa will visit millions of homes all over the world bringing joy to people everywhere. Even though I'm an adult, I still enjoy the magic of the season and Santa. Today's project was made by one of my downline, Lyndi. The tiny frame fits an image about 3" x 3". This is just perfect for the tiny Santa.

Periodically, people ask me what they should do with Paper Pumpkin kits they don't like. My suggestion is to use all the pieces to make something you love. I actually loved the November Kit, Gifts Galore, but I really wanted to stretch all the pieces. This is what the Kit directions have you make. These treat boxes are just the cutest. The directions have you use two of each snowman, tree, and presents - one on each side of the treat box. I … [Read more...] about What Can I do with a Paper Pumpkin kit?

I can't find the name of the person who first posted it because it was so long ago, but I still wanted to share the project. This is the front cover of the book. I love the owl from the ephemera pack. I don't know why, but it reminds me of Harry Potter. … [Read more...] about Blackberry Beauty
Independence day has come and gone for another year but I couldn't let July pass without creating a patriotic Sampler for this month. Honestly, this one was a little bit of a struggle. I had a hard time figuring out how I was going to make fireworks because I really wanted fireworks in July's Sampler. I tried a couple different things, but none of them looked quite right. But I think the red and blue sparkles in the top left square are a … [Read more...] about July Sampler – Let Freedom Ring

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!
