Happy Fall Box

Happy Tuesday crafty friends!

Today I have a fun little box to show you that I think would be a super cute fall themed gift.
I filled my box with some cashews.


I got my box from the silhouette store. The box originally has a window but I altered the file just a bit so that it didn't cut out. Isn't that little squirrel adorable?? She is from KaDoodle Bug Designs and is in a set called, Nuts About Fall. There are 3 different squirrels in this set, plus sunflowers, acorns, leaves and a title. KaDoodle Bug is having a  great sale right now too so it's a great time to stock up on any files you may be needing from them. I have no idea when the sale ends though so you may want to hurry :) 

I will be entering my project into a couple of different challenges.
&

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today and taking a look at my latest creation!
I really appreciate it!

I hope you have a great crafty day!!

MCT Made In Minutes Monday

Happy Happy Monday!!!
Thank you all so much for hopping with us this past weekend!

Today over at the My Creative Time blog, it is
Made In Minutes!
This is the day where we create a project and try to keep it under 20 minutes. 
Today's Made In Minutes has a twist of using the following photo for inspiration:


For my card, I decided to go with some of the colors (I have black polka dots instead of brown, oops) as well as the picture. When I saw the picture, my first thought was Autumn which then turned to Halloween, so of course I just had to make a Halloween card lol!



For my card, I used those fabulous Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies for my card layers. I then used some ghosts from the Stitched Spooky Ghost Die and stamped some Peachy Keen Faces onto them. The ghosts were already cut out from a previous project so that saved me a little time. I used the Uppercase Fun Dies to create my "BOO".  I finished off my card with a bow from the Small Stitched Scalloped Bow Die and some sequins. Quick and easy but super cute! It took me under 20 minutes to make this card, 17 minutes and 54 seconds actually!

Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a look at my latest creation!
I really appreciate it!

Happy Friday!!
Welcome to My Creative Time's 36th Release Blog Hop!!

I decided to make some fun little treat containers that showcase those super fun stamps and dies from the 2 new sets called Wicked Fun Dies and Trick or Treat.

For my first project, I decided to make this little fun size candy bar holder that I found in the silhouette online store and dress it up with the Wicked Fun Dies set.


I cut out a banner from the Stitched Decorative Banner and then stamped the "Happy" from the Wicked Fun Dies set onto it and then inked the edges. The "Halloween" as well as the bats, spider web and spider also all came from the Wicked Fun Dies. I finished off my caddy with some silver star confetti.

For my second project, I decided to make a box that I could fill with an assortment of different candy.


I used the label from the Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies & More set and stamped my greeting and those fun stars from the Trick Or Treat stamp set onto it. I added those fun witchy feet and witchy hat from the Wicked Fun Dies to the label and then popped it all up on my box from with some foam adhesive, I added that super fun web and spider, also from the Wicked Fun Dies. I added some yellow stickles to the stars and some bling to finish off my fun treat box.

Happy Wednesday!!
Welcome to Day 3 of the My Creative Time's 36th edition sneak peeks!
How have you liked the peeks so far?

Today we are giving you a sneak peek of a set called 

This set has so many great and thoughtful sentiments.
I decided to make a fall colored card with a greeting that is perfect to show someone how much you appreciate them.


I used some of the stitched rectangles from the set we showed you a sneak peek of on Monday, called Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies & More. I then used one of the tags from the Tag Dies set to create my main focal point area. I cut out that fun leaf and the "grateful" from the A Thankful Heart set and used my distress inks and some shimmer spray to give them that fun variated color.  The rest of the greeting also came from the A Thankful Heart set. I finished off my card with some ribbon and a few gold sequins.

How did you like the Day 1 peeks?

Today we are giving you a sneak peek of 2 AWESOME sets titled, 
I love making Halloween projects so these sets are right up my alley :) 

For my project today, I decided to make a gatefold style card.


For the front of my card, I used the label from the Vintage Stitched Label Dies and then put a circle from the Bunch Of Fun Circle dies onto the front. I then adhered those super cute witch boots and bats from the Wicked Fun Dies and used some wink of stella to glitter them up just a little. For my greeting, I used a greeting from the Trick Or Treat stamp set and stamped that onto a banner from the Vintage Stitched Label Dies.

When you open the card, you will see another fun greeting from the Trick Or Treat stamp set as well as a super fun witch hat and another bat from the Wicked Fun Dies set. 

Aren't those greetings and dies fabulous?
I love them!!

Welcome to Day 1 of the My Creative Time sneak peeks for the 36th Edition!
I'm so glad you stopped by to see the sneaks!
This release is so amazing and you are definitely not going to want to miss one single day! 
I know I say this with each release, but this one may just be my favorite lol! (At least until the next one ;) )

Today we are giving you a sneak peek of a fun new set titled, Rectangular Stitched Frames & More.

I decided to make a simple but sweet card that I can mail to someone, no occasion needed. We all like receiving mail that isn't bills right? lol


My card (other than the ribbon & base) was made in it's entirety using elements from the
Rectangular Stitched Frames & More set.
From those fabulous stitched rectangle layers to the label as well as the "hi".
How awesome is that?

Yo Ho Ho! Pirates Treasure Chest

Hi crafty friends!
Happy Thursday!

There is a fun challenge going on over at Die Cuttin Divas in honor
of Pirate Day so I thought it would be fun to play along.

I decided to make a little treasure chest filled with some candy.

My skull and crossbones has some fun red "ruby" eyes.

On the top of my box, I added some pirate lingo  :) 

What's a treasure chest without some loot?
 This loot just happens to be candy lol

I think these would be so cute as some party favors or even for Halloween.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and taking a look at my latest creation.
I really appreciate it!

I hope you have a great crafty day!

My Creative Time: Tag It Tuesday

Hi there and Happy Tuesday!!

Today over at the My Creative Time blog, it is Tag It Tuesday!
We will be showing you tags that use the following picture for our inspiration.


Here is the tag that I made based on the photo:


I loved the party scene that is in the photo as well as those gorgeous colors, so that's what I decided to use for my inspiration on my tag today. I used the Tag Dies and the Tag Die Layers for my tag base. Before I adhered them together, I embossed my white top layer of my tag. I then used the Stitched Party Dies for my banner and balloons. I used the Happy Birthday from the Gift Card Sentiments and stamped that onto an oval I cut out using the Stitched Oval Die then heat embossed it with some silver embossing powder. I added a few pieces of bling and some cording for the balloons to finish it off. 

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today and taking a look at my latest creation!

Spooky Purse

Happy Thursday crafty friends!!

Guess what?? I pulled out my Cricut the other day and actually used it!!
It feels like forever since I have actually used it and after using it, I realized how much I missed it. I definitely think I am going to have to use it more often.

I decided to make a little purse so that I could play along with the challenge over at 

I decided to use one of the purses that is on the Artiste cartridge and turn it into a purse that is perfect for Halloween :) 


I cut my purse out of some purple cardstock and then my pocket on the front out of some houndstooth patterned paper. My Spooky as well as that adorable little ghost came from the Stitched Spooky Ghost Dies from My Creative Time. That cute little face came from the Christmas In July Face Assortment (PK-1410) from Peachy Keen. I filled the inside of my purse with some sweet candy treats. I think the pocket would be cute with a thin candy bar inside it as well. 

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by my blog to see my latest creation!
I really appreciate it!

I hope you have a great crafty day!

What A Treat Wednesday

Happy Wednesday!!

Today over at the My Creative Time blog,
it is What A Treat Wednesday!!

What A Treat Wednesday is where we show you treat bags, boxes and containers that incorporate those fabulous My Creative Time Products!! 

I decided to use the Embossed Gift Card Holder to make a fun little candy holder.


To decorate my Embossed Gift Card Holder,  I used that cute little ghost from the Stitched Spooky Ghost Dies set and adhered that to the front. I then stamped the BOO from the Treats For My Sweet stamp set and fussy cut it out. I added some faux stitching and some orange stickles. I used some foam adhesive to pop it up over my ghost. I added a few confetti stars and a little nylon bow to finish it off. 

Once the Embossed Gift Card Holder is opened, the receiver finds a little treat:


I think it is so fun and it was so simple to make! These would be great for class parties since they would be very easy to mass produce.
