0 Gift Tags with pockets

I've spent the last 3 weeks working on opening an Etsy Shop.  It was a little time consuming, but once I got enough things ready to list, it's all up and running.   I want to try to have a variety of things and am slowly working on that.  I've got plenty of ideas, just not a lot of time.

Here I've made some hang tags with pockets to insert a note in.  The note card pulls out from the side.

 The little note card (2 1/4 x 2 1/4) has a tab on the top and inserts in the side of the gift tag.

Thanks for looking today and I hope all is well in your world!

2 St. Patricks Day Repost

This is from a couple of years ago, maybe even 3, but I'm reposting it because my previous posts were shared from the Cricut Blog that shut down, therefore removing images and links and many have been coming from Pinterest to find them.  Nothing more annoying than a bad Pinterest link!


Cricut Craft Room
Cricut Expression 2
Cricut Cake  or Cake Mini
Cricut Score Tool
Cricut Font and Basic Shapes (belts)
Close To My Heart – Art Philosophy (shamrocks)
TBBM2 – (cupcake holders)
Cardstock (green, black, gold), fondant, gum paste, modeling chocolate or icing sheets

1.  Score, cut and assemble hat cupcake holders.  They are created with the ‘tea cup’ box from Tags Bags Boxes and More 2 without the handle. 
2.  Cut belt pieces.  Slide belt through buckle and wrap around base of cupcake holder, adhering ends in the back. Fill with cupcakes, candies, nuts, etc.  

Cupcakes -  Cut file includes shamrocks for cupcakes.  Be sure to change machine to a cake
machine under options in the Cricut Craft Room to cut them.  Cut fondant (gum paste, modeling chocolate, or icing sheet) into shamrock shapes and embellish cupcakes.  Can also just cut shamrocks from paper and attach to toothpicks and use as cupcake toppers. Pin It

2 Come on Spring and Summer; I'm ready!

I don't know about you, but I'm really glad Spring is on it's way.  While we didn't have a ton of snow, like much of the US did, it was brutally cold with occasional ice and snow storms causing all kinds of chaos.  I'm looking forward to Summer and this year I actually got the diet going early in September with a goal to be down to my lowest weight by my birthday in 6 months - I succeeded!   The hardest part of dieting is getting in the groove. Once I get in the groove, I don't have any trouble losing weight (with a lot of discipline), but then I get too comfortable in my success and some of it creeps back on.  Think I'll try a little harder this time to keep it all off.

I've been enjoying my old stash of Penny Black stamps and coloring images, enjoying making things more often.  I had forgotten how long it takes to put a card together.  Not just the actual stitching and assembly, but the decisions on layout and components and coloring of images.

Suitable for just about any occasion, birthday, Mother's Day, just because, etc., this card is embellished with various ribbons, die cuts, a paper flower, stitching, and more. 

A coordinating inside and box to complete it.

Thanks for looking and I hope all is well in your world!

0 Life is good (redo)

Before putting this card up on eBay I decided to rework it a little.  I actually made it back in July 2012 (original post here).  I wasn't totally pleased with it and wanted to change it a little.

<=== this is the original card.....

I moved the acrylic stars around and then removed the original bow and replaced it with a metal moth (or is it a butterfly?)  Also added a gem eye on the bird, a flower and gem on top of the birdcage and a bigger loopier bow at the bottom.

Thanks for looking and have a great weekend!

1 Penny Black any occasion card


I dug out my rubber stamps!  Took me a bit to refresh my stamping and Copic coloring, but it was fun.   I even used some texture paste on the lower right (the big leaf and stem looking area) - gave it a little more dimension/texture. This card can be for any occasion, to include fast approaching Easter!

Be well and thanks for stopping by!
