Last Year's Christmas Cards

Hey Everyone!
Last holiday season I was so stressed out and running late getting my cards done for a charity at my church. Well I forgot to post them. Some of the stamps and other supplies are now retired, but Hey! What the heck? I'm sure some of you hang on to your stuff after it's retired so maybe I can give you a little nudge to dust off some of your faves and get Stampin'!

You'll have to forgive me on not remembering all the supplies I used.

Stamp Set:  Dove of Peace

I totally cased this one from Pintrest ( Judy May )
Sentiment is from Greetings of the Season (2012)

Stamp Set: Christmas Cuties

Stamp Sets: Every Blessing, Sentiment: Come to Bethlehem

Here are a couple of Non-Stampin' Up...
Parts of them are made from Cricut Cartridges & SVG's
I can't remember which cartridges or SVG's



Hope You Have a Happy Crafty Day!

Eraser For Life!

Hey Everyone!

I've been taking a little  break this summer.  I've had some pretty serious
health issues and some of them are still going on but I am
at least feeling somewhat human again.

I'm beginning to work a little in my craft room but I don't have any
 designs to share with you just yet....

But I found this pretty darn funny...


I was looking for an eraser and found this in the
school supply section at Meijer.

That's my favorite and most frequently used word!
LOL

I'm pretty sure I won't need to purchase another eraser
in this lifetime!

Hope to see you soon!

Alphabet Magnets

Hi Everyone!

It's New Release time at


Since my Grandkids LOVE to play with Magnets on the refrigerator...
I've decided to take these adorable characters and start making
Fridge Magnets out of them:


Here is the one I made for "G"
G Giraffe


Next Month We'll have Part Two
N-Z
and I'll show you the next fridge magnet made with "T"

Here's the placement of the magnets:

I just use vent covers and cut them up for magnets...
(I use a lot of magnets for things like storing my metal frames.)

Then I just glued them on with Beacon's 3-1 glue.
I used this glue because it's super strong and will stand up to little hands constantly moving the alphabet magnets around :)


Here's the other supplies:
CS: GP White, Chocolate Chip
Ink: Copic Markers
Accessories: Quickutz Metro Alphabet dies, SU Labels framelits, piercing template, Felt Flowers, So Saffron brads, Pretty in Pink satin ribbon, Dimensionals, Magnets (on back for hanging on the refrigerator).

Thanks for stopping by today!
Happy Craftin'!
