..::Moose Card::..

Here's a snow globe card I made using a moose pattern from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs. I love making them! I designed the snow globe in SCAL.

)the brown paper is not part of it - it's just used for contrast)

Hope you all have a great weekend!!

..::Real Witch::..

I saw this cute wooden sign with a witch and this saying. I refused to pay 20.00 for it...cute but not THAT cute! I saw they had stencils on ebay to make the same sign I saw...10.00. Still not willing to pay that. I then remembered this awesomely cute paper I had from MME - Mishievious.. I loved that it had a Tim Burton feel to it and my oldest son is crazy about anything Tim Burton like! so I got to work on it and I think it turned out pretty cute! Tyler loves it too!!

Hope you all have a fantabulous week =)

..::Moms Paper Cake::..

I made this little cake out of chip board / paper/ and an LED candle! I hope my mom will love it - she lives 350 miles away so I thought this would be the perfect birthday cake!! I've asked for help making an svg file of the cake because mine is awful or I'd offer to share the file..

Hope you all have a great weekend!

..::Card for my Dr. ::..

My Dr. is having a lumpectomy and I wanted to make her a little card to let her know we are thinking of her. She's such a great Dr and really works hard to take care of ppl not only at work but in her personal life as well. Really great woman and I am praying she won't need chemo. At any rate - here is her card. This time I used paper from Echo Park. Not the best card by any means but I hope it put a smile on her face.

..::Tobias' First Halloween::..

I decided to make some scrap pages to display for the holidays. This cute little monkey paper piecing is from Beary Sweet Designs - LOVE her work! I designed the bat circle and the title is from Happy Haunting cartridge. Paper is Haunted by My Minds Eye. LOVE their paper!! My new fave even!

I think I'm finding a new balance and I hope to get more done now!! Hope you all have a fantabulous week!!

~*~ Belles N' Whistles ~*~ card

I decided to try a digi stamp and wow...I'm impressed!! The digi image is Rachel, Little Angel I colored her with ProMarkers and the paper is from Bo Bunny Crazy Love Collection. I made the flowers!! They are rolled flowers from Flower Shoppe. Sorry the picture isn't so great it's from my iphone - the real camera is upstairs and well I just have no time anymore!

..::Prince Charming::..

I really like the way this one turned out! It started out being a scrap page for Tobias' rocking chair and then my brother convinced me to try and sell on is my first and most likely last attempt at that - I simply don't have the time! We shall see...

I hope you all are enjoying summer and staying as cool as possible!

::King of Cute::

A layout I made using paper piecing from Little Scraps of Heaven. These pages are 8x8 and were made for a little baby that was born needing a heart transplant. Halfway through the making of the pages - he passed away. I just can't imagine...

I hope the mom finds comfort in the scrapbook(s) everyone has pulled together to make for her/him.

I LOVE the way these turned out!!! I got the idea from Penny Duncan Creations - the dragonfly is her cut file. I had so much fun making these and I think they look so real! Check out Penny's site - such cool files and how to's there!

Have a great week!

..::All American Boy::..

A layout I did of Tobias last summer. I used a sketch from sketchabilities - not crazy about this layout but it was good to be in the paper and glue again! I used lots of cartridges - Graphically speaking and April Showers to name a few.

Hope you all have a great Memorial Day weekend and stay safe!!

..::Cherish Love::..

I love this layout. I love this picture! This is a layout of my Great Aunt and Uncle. Takoda Lee is named for my Uncle. He was the best man I will ever know. I wish my boys could of known him. So grateful to have found my Aunt on Facebook and that she shared this photo with me. It is one of the things on my to grab list if the house were to ever go up in smoke....honestly. Grab the boys, Grab my photo. I used my E2/gypsy for every single cut.

Hope you all have a great weekend!!

I wanted to try making a tshirt with my imagine and it worked! I do see why you have to cut each thing out - but this was a trial run! I think it turned out cute!! I used the Country Carnival cartridge for the letters...trying to decide if I want to add something else...

Hope you all have a great Wednesday!!

..::Sweet Dreams:..

Not my favorite layout at all - actually it's probably my least favorite ever - but time is limited and I don't have time to keep redoing it. I do like the sheep - I covered them in flower soft to help give them a wooly look. My baby was so very little none of his clothes even fit him. That sure didn't last long lol!

Hope you all are doing well - off to make some cards and hopefully get them in the mail today! (if the past is an indication - they'll be at least a month in the making - time...time is just not my friend with a 2 year old and a 2 month old!!)

Happy Crafting!

I posted this once already and apparently it didn't work!! This is a layout of my grandmother and my great grandmother (mother in law/daughter in law) I love this photo! The only thing I wish I had done differently was to use pearls vs. diamonds. I might change the butterflies a little too not sure yet. At any rate it was so nice to get this finished! I'm not good at girlie layouts!!

Now I just have to figure out why my E2 is not cutting thinner bazzill paper - I wasted an entire sheet trying to cut the word "beautiful" and ended up having to use the original E to cut it...not happy about that!

Hope you all have a great weekend!!

..::Puppet Theater::..

Tyler wanted to make Tobias a puppet theater for his 2nd birthday (which is tomorrow) so Brent got busy with the technical end of things and I got busy with the cricut and Tyler painted and mod podged all the cut outs onto the wood. We ordered him Elmo, Cookie Monster, and Grover hand puppets to go along with it. I can't wait to see what fun comes with this!!

I love this picture of Tobias and Takoda. Tobias loves his little brother but only when he has to - only if he's confined in a little space with him. He calls him "KoKo". How cute is that? Here they are the first time they ever met...I love this picture.

..::Takoda Lee::..

Not much time to tell the whole birth story at the moment but someday soon when I feel much better and can I will share that horrifying experience...until then...Welcome my newest little man Takoda Lee. Our only blond haired child! Who saw that coming? Not me! Although I should of probably considered it a possibility! How precious is he?

Some of Takoda's Baby Book

Trying to get everything in place...almost finished with his baby book!! Here are a few pages from it.

Hope you all are having a great week!

..::Birth Announcement::..

This is such a bad picture that I'll repost it when I get a good one - but I'm excited at how they turned out. Only the grandparents will get one with flowers the rest will just be flat - I can't afford all that special shipping! The baby is a Magnolia stamp of course! Colored with ProMarkers and rock candy stickles on the wings. When I repost the picture I'll include a shot of the inside. I rolled the flowers from white cardstock then chalked them blue and sprayed with Perfect Pearls mist. They have a faint silver glimmer to them.

Hope you all are having a great week!

..::Monkeying Around::..

I am trying so hard to find the energy to make things. I NEED to make things, but the energy is missing or the pain is so intense I can't walk so I do a lot of sleeping or sitting. So ready to have my body back to myself! I just want to be mobile again! Should be another weekish and I will get to meet my littlest man...I'm excited and scared all at the same time. I've never had two little LITTLE ones at one time. Tyler and Trever are 3 1/2 years apart. Then of course Trever and Tobias are 10 years (still shocks me) apart! I will have 2 under 2!! I can do this right?

Here is a layout I've been working on for weeks (lol - so sad really but you do what you can when you can!) Tobias got this Monkey last Valentines Day and he loves him still! He's getting a new one today as soon as daddy goes and gets his treat and balloon!

Also adding a picture of Tobias' first shiner. He always fights with his little tykes stove and well...the stove won.

Hope you all are having great weather! I can't enjoy it like I want to but I'm rather loving the sunshine!!

..::Brent's Valentine Card::..

I'm suppose to be doing very little...that gets boring fast. So I decided creating has to be good for my health! I'll just sit in the chair with wheels and roll myself around the room - no walking right?  At any rate here is the card I made for Brent so far. It just feels unfinished to me...

The stamp is a Unity Stamp I picked up at Archivers. I just thought it was so cute! I used Glossy Accents on the boots, umbrella, and the little hearts. I think it's cute but missing something - so we'll see!!

Hope you all have a great weekend!! Hope to make something more soon!

..::Birthday Card::..

I love elephants! (and monkeys) so I could not resist making this card for a friend! (She should have it by now for sure so I figured it was safe to post)  I also love the little kid sayings stamps and when they were on sale at Hobby Lobby I couldn't resist that either!

Hope you all are having a great week! I'm very tired lately and having a mojo missing week :( I hope to make something today!

..::Berry Sweet::..

Do you ever feel like if you don't create something you're going to stop breathing? I had felt like for the past two days and just could not get anything to work out! So last night at 4 am..FINALLY! a layout fell together.  I finished it up today with some butterflies and flowers. I'm pretty happy with the end result!

The green border paper is a cut file from Heather M's blog- if you've never been there...check it out. She does amazing work!! This is an intricate cut and does require sturdy paper!

I think this did a great job at capturing Tobias' love for strawberries! They are probably his favorite food. For Christmas this year my mom got him the cutest strawberry ornament to memorialize his strawberry love!

Hope you all have a great weekend! I've got a few more projects planned!

Thursday, January 6, 2011


I can't believe I never posted these!! Tyler and I were reading about the Day of the Dead. It was interesting and we decided we wanted to make our own Catrina's. After I made it I had no idea what to do with it so I gave it to Bub. He hung it in his room. I made all the flowers on her head and the spider webs and spider are all cricut cuts. The skulls are also cricut cuts but I changed my eyes to rain drops and played with them a little to get the shape changed up. It was so much fun for a project just on a whim!

..::A few Tobias Christmas Photos::..

Poor baby was so overwhelmed by Christmas. In the first photo he's doing his normal morning routine and looking to see who left what out that he can hurry and get before we notice. It was a good 15 minutes before he even noticed the gifts behind him...In the second photo he's finally discovered the giant monkey that wasn't wrapped in an effort to help his curiosity. And in the third photo he's discovered a way to get out of doing all the work of unwrapping!

My poor tree has never looked so horrible. Tobias really did a number on it this year - from stealing and hiding ornaments (I just found one in his bed yesterday! WHAT?!) to stealing my wooden "cranberries" and making himself a pull cord for his big truck...To top the tree nightmare off - he took the tree down the day after Christmas...luckily he wasn't hurt but we put it away that night!

Hope you all had a great Christmas and you all have an even better New Year!!!
