Topiary Candy Tree

Here are two Topiary Candy Tree's I created with a 4th of July theme. One is with Starlight Mints and the other is with Three Musketeers Minis

Picture Frame- 4th of July

I created this with the Cricut and Design Studio. I cut the mat and stars from George, and the font is Opposites Attract. I embossed with the CuttleBug.
All I have to do is add a photo.

Class-Going Green

We went a little green in our last class. We created this cute mini-album out of an empty toilet paper roll. The gals had a great time and are now saving their empty rolls at home to create more. We also learned how to properly apply Rub-ons, and two of my favorite "must-have" tools...the Edge Scrapper and Bone File.

Mother's Day Card

Here are the cards we created in class last week.
The first one is a cute Bookmark Card. As you can see in the second photo, the inside has a pull-off bookmark. I just love cards that "do" something.

Then the next one is the cute Flower Pot card. I loved using the Fiskars Squeeze Punches on this one.

And last but not least I showed everyone how to create this adorable Post-it Note w/Pen Holder.

All in all it was a great class. Next week for class we are Going Green!!! Sign up today

A Mother's Day Surprise

As most of you know I REFUSE to purchase ANYTHING by martha stewart. Even to type her name is making me ill. The past few months I have seen this cute little butterfly on so many different projects and just had to find out what it is from. After much Internet searching, I was so disappointed to find out it was one of HER punches :( So much for me getting to use that cute butterfly on my creations. The other day DH and I were at WM, I saw the punch and told my DH how much I wanted it until I found out it was one of HERS. He laughed because he knows I refuse to even look at HER stuff. Well...much to my surprise this morning I wake up to find the Butterfly Punch, and he says, "I know you really wanted this punch, and won't ever bring yourself to buy it, so I got it for you. Happy Mother's Day" How sweet! He also got the heart punch... which I will promptly return on Monday lol
Wishing everyone a wonderful Mother's Day!!!!

National Scrapbook Day-Mini Album Class

We had such a good time yesterday! First we had our Mini-Album Class and created this beautiful 6x6 album using the Zinnia line from Little Yellow Bicycle. Talk about adorable!!! I can't wait to add my photos and some ribbons around the rings!

When we finished with class we ordered a pizza, and spent the rest of the afternoon scrappin!! I think Michelle was able to finish over 6 LO's for her reunion album she is working on. Talk about a speedy scrapper! All in all it was a terrific day! I hope your NSD was just as creative!!
