I love the little row boat on top of the box lid!
I made this as a little gift for my hubby. 
He has been wanting a boat and always looks at them so I thought this would be cute and funny to give to him :)
Plus, he loves it whenever I make anything that involves candy! lol!

Here is a view from the top:


Inside the box, I put a big bag of Swedish Fish Candy:


Look at this cute little sentiment from the Pun In The Sun stamp set:

Oopsy Daisy!!

Hi guys!
Happy Monday!
I hope you all had a great weekend!

Today I get to show you another project using those awesome

This week is all about 3D Flowers!

I decided to make this card and add some dimension to my daisy:

I found this cute little bear holding a daisy in the Silhouette Online Store.
It is titled Love Bug Bear (design ID 40965).
I cut out the daisy layer multiple times to layer them on top of each other with some foam adhesive to make my flower 3D. I then cut apart another daisy layer to give the illusion of some petals falling. I attached them by only adhering the top of the petal and then curling the bottom of the petal up. I added some faux stitching to my card as well as to my bear and flower stem/leaf. 

Here is a picture showing some of the dimension:


The "Oopsy Daisy" greeting from the You're So Punny stamp set from Joy's Life, was perfect for my card:


Look at all the great sayings on the You're So Punny Stamp Set:

Krafty Girls #22--Birds Of A Feather

Hello and Happy Tuesday!
Are you guys ready for another fun challenge from the 

Create a paper project that is inspired by a bird theme. 

Here is the card that I created for the challenge:


For my card, I used my Straight from the Nest cricut cartridge and cut out my little birthday birdie at 4". I popped her up with some foam adhesive onto my kraft cardstock layer that I embossed with my swiss dots cuttlebug folder. I finished off my card with some ribbon and of course I had to add a button with some twine to my bow :) For my sentiment, I simply stamped it onto some blue cardstock and then notched out one end to create a banner shape and attached it to my card with the edge hanging off of the card just a little bit to give my card a little more dimension. The sentiment banner is also popped up with some foam adhesive. 

I hope you will head over to the

Beary Best Wishes!

Hi guys!
I hope your Saturday is off to a great start! Today I get to show you another project using those awesome

This week the Joy's Life DT is having a free for all!!
Since I am running a little low on birthday cards, I decided to make one to add to my card stash.


I fell in love with this little bear with the frosting all over his face as soon as I saw him in the Silhouette store.
The bear is titled Party Bear (design ID 43753). The oval also came from the Silhouette store, Nesting Ovals Pinked Edge (design ID 4585). I stamped my sentiment and then I ran the oval through my cuttlebug using the swiss dots embossing folder.  I then popped up the oval  with some foam adhesive.  The little bear is also popped up with some foam adhesive. For my cupcake sprinkles, I drew them with a marker and then added some fruit punch stickles to each sprinkle. 


Look how perfect that sentiment is for my card!
My sentiment came from the Punny Animals set.
Look at all the great greetings on there:


So fun!!

Hello Friend!

Hi there and happy Friday!!
Any fun plans for the weekend?
I hope to get a lot of crafting done and cross off some of the many projects on my growing to-do list.

Today I was able to make a card for 2 different challenges.

They are:


And



Here is the card that I created:


I love the simplicity of the sketch and had an idea in mind as soon as I saw it.
For my flower, I simply laid out some Washi Tape onto some white cardstock and then ran it through my cuttlebug using my Classic Scallop Circles from spellbinders. Once I had my scallop circles cut out, I simply used my scissors and cut a small line on every other scallop down to almost the center. Once cut, I simply rumpled them a little bit and folded under just a tad to give them some dimension. I layered them on top of each other and attached to my card. I finished off my flower with a button center and some leaves from a leaf punch. 

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by my blog and take a look at my latest creation!

I hope you have a fabulous day!

Enjoy the summer card with Action Wobbles

For my blog hop winners post, please click HERE


Hi everyone!
Happy Saturday!
I hope your weekend is off to a fabulous start!

Today I get to show you a fun little summertime card using those awesome Action Wobbles!


For my card, I simply used the print and cut feature on my silhouette to cut out my little crab.
You can find the crab in the Silhouette store, it is titled Crab at beach (#43373). The clouds are also from the silhouette store and they are titled, 5 clouds (#11654). To build my beach, I simply took some Kraft card stock and tore it to give the edge some dimension. I did the same thing for my water layer. After I adhered my water layer down, I ran some glue along the top edge and then added some loose glitter to give my water a little sparkle. My sun was created by using a circle punch and adhering it to the corner and then just trimmed off the edges. I added some stickles for the sun's rays. 

I adore that little crab soaking up some sun and playing on the beach!
How cute!


He's ready to play:

Good times!:

I love how Action Wobbles bring my card to life!
