Post It Note Holder

I just love how quick and easy these post it note holders are! Here is one I did for myself for my desk at work. I need to make 4 more tonight for other people who saw them and want one! Sorry the pics aren't that clear- forgot to take a picture at home before I brought it to work so I had to use the camera on my phone.

Birthday Cards!!

I was getting low on birthday cards so I decided to make a couple. Of course you can see where my inspiration comes from :)

1st card

Close up- used my cuttle bug on this one and then lightly inked over it to give the dimension alittle pop.

2nd card

3rd card
Also used cuttlebug and inked over it and then added stickles to some spots.

Last card

Bunco! Score pads

I am hosting Bunco this week and decided to craft it up alittle bit. So I had a bunch of pink scrap paper lying around so I decided to make Bunco score pads just for fun! I made 3- one for each table. I tried to make them all kind of match by using the same paper and ribbons. Thanks for looking!

A couple pages from my Honeymoon Scrapbook!

Here are a couple pages from my honeymoon scrapbook. We went on a cruise to Mexico- never again! Not the cruise part... the Mexico part.. so dirty! Anyways we made the best of it. Highlight was the lion cub in Cabo San Lucas- although- looking back- probably not the safest thing to do :)


Going through older things i've scrapbooked. I love NY! I did this scrapbook a year ago... Here are a couple pages from my NY scrapbook.

Metropolitan Museum of Art

Central Park Zoo! One of my favorite layouts

NY Pizza! Mmmmmm Grimaldis was my favorite followed by John's Pizzeria!
Our Hotel- The Rosevelt

"HOME" altered letters

Here are some wooden letters that I altered for a craft fair. Very easy to do and very addicting! I got the letters at Michaels. I used ink pads to ink the sides of the letters then just traced the letters on paper to get the correct size for the letters. I also altered the words "Family" and "Love" Thanks for looking!

Happy 4th of July cupcakes

Made this real quick to go on my cupcakes for tomorrow's party. I used a 2 inch scallop punch and a 1 3/4 inch circle punch. Printed out the wording on my computer and used a red star/firework stamp for the background. Thanks for looking!

Uncle Sam Poop!

Happy 4th of July!

I made this for the 4th of July party at my parents house tomorrow. I used PPDU cartridge for Uncle Sam. I used the wiseman's beard, rag doll boy's hair, and the rest was from the groom. I didn't have red and white striped paper so I just used white and made lines with a red pen. The candy used is Atomic Fire Balls.

The poem reads:
Just when you thought that 4th of July
had no more space for improvement,
your doubts must now all go away-
here's a gift from Uncle Sam's bowel movement!

Thanks for looking!
