Trick or Treat...

Smell my Feet!  Just love that little jingle when I was kid.  LOL
Just wanted to share a little layout I did using files from Designs on Cloud 9 and the border templates from Kiwi Lane Designs.  I am not loving my paper choices (I have the worst time choosing my papers, I wish it come to me easily.  Sometimes I absolutely love my choices but most of the time I am OK with the choices)  anywho.... here is the layout of my 2 kids at Halloween 2 years ago.

Here are some cute treat bags that I made for my daughters classmates using more Designs on Cloud 9 patterns and my 2.5" Halloween embellishments that are for Sale in my store ( link above )

Thanks for visiting!

Up~cycled Drink Mix container

Wanted to share an up~cycle project.  
This is an empty Wyler's drink mix container I turned into a Halloween treat holder.  I used the circle scallop from "scalloped shapes", drippy border from "boo-tiful borders" and my 2.5" digital embellishment that I made using the .png from "Halloween cupcake toppers" pattern sets from Designs on Cloud 9.
My 2.5" embellies are for sale if your interested.  Click on the link and it will take you to the products page.

Breast Cancer awareness month....

As we all know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, but it should not start or end in October, we should always be aware. 
Remember to do your self-breast exams, and make those appointments for your mammogram and remind your friends to do the same
I meant to post this little projects for the link it up pink party, but I missed the cut off.  Oops!
Anyway... I used the "Pillow Box" and the "Think Pink" pattern sets from Designs on Cloud 9.

Thanks for visiting!

Need a hostess Gift....Bottle Cover up is the answer

Started working on something pretty cool yesterday and was going to work on it over the weekend, but I got way to excited about it!  So I worked all afternoon on it.  
It's perfect if you like to give bottles of liquor as gifts!  
You can get the .svg pattern for it HERE.

Here is the cover all dressed and embellished.
Pattern comes with cover and panels.
 Embellishments (scalloped base, flowers,leaves and flourish) are NOT included in the file, they can be purchased at Designs on Cloud 9.

Here is a quick cover... use patterned paper w/o the panels
You could also use this file to make favor boxes, just fill them with goodies and tie the tops with ribbon.
You can make them for shorter and wider bottles too by cutting 2 patterns and piecing them together.

Here is a photo heavy tut on how to put the bottle cover together....

Finally turn over and embellish or not :0)
(I was so excited to decorate it, I forgot to take a photo of it in that stage) LOL
I linked up for pink with this project
Thanks for visiting!

Just Plane Cute

Afternoon all!  I just wanted to share a cute little layout I made using Designs on Cloud 9's "Plane Cute" and "Sara's Swirls" pattern sets.  Instead of card stock for the bear, I used fleece, I labeled him a tear-like bear because he is not quite a tear bear.  Cute right!

Here is a close up of the paper piecing set

and here is the complete layout.

Morning all!  I just wanted to share 2 cards I made... I would love to start making more cards they are just so much more personal to give then a store bought.  Don't get me wrong I still buy the occasional card when it is a last minute deal or an OMGosh I forgot moment (We all have those moments LOL)
Both cards are inspired.  
I have to tell that is one ADDICTIVE sight... so so many cool things and lots and lots of inspiration!!!

This card I made for my Godmother's wedding... 
I used the curly flowers pattern set from Designs on Cloud 9

This one I made for a special friend, for her Birthday!
I used the "Scalloped Circle Shapes" and the "Lacy Tags" Pattern sets from Designs on Cloud 9.
If you are interested in how to make the flower, the tutorial for it is HERE

I hope you like them!
