Mason Jar Love

Hello! I have a little mason jar themed card to share...

I wanted to use Fall colors, but this would be pretty in any color!
The mason jar svg is from Lori Whitlock's Mason Jar Bundle.
There are so many cute images in this set...
I can't wait to try them all!
I though this would make a nice "thank you" card.
It's a little hard to see in the photo, but I also stamped 
the background with Echo Park's Buffalo Plaid stamp.

Thanks for checking in and have a great day!!

Rose Doily


I finished this pretty doily today...
I love the pattern.
It's very easy.
I used this chart.
This is the same pattern I used for the the blue and yellow doilies...
only then I made the small version.


I used Dawn Rose Artiste thread from Hobby Lobby.
Thanks for checking in and have a great day!
Hope you can crochet today! = )

Flower market bag

Hello! How are you?
I can't believe how fast summer is flying by!
My husband and I enjoy going to our local
farmer's market on the weekends. I saw a
pattern for a cute bag...perfect to bring along to the market.


My goal was to use up some of the cotton yarn  I have on hand.
I started with yellow...but didn't have enough to both sides.

So I switched to white for the other side...
...but kept the center yellow.
The pattern is very easy!
You can find the chart here.
Thanks for checking in and have a great day!!

Gran's Garden Gift Tag

Hello! Just popping in today with a
gift tag I made using Gran's Garden from Papertrey Ink.


I sent my sister a little gift in the mail, so I decided to
pretty up the package a bit.
I used a brown paper bag from The Paper  Studio (Hobby Lobby)
added the tag and some baker's twine.


I cut the heart from gingham paper, on my Cricut, using 
the Doodlecharms cartridge.
Thanks for checking in and have a great day!

Tea cups...

Sometimes when I am looking at Pinterest,
I feel like I just have to make a card...
I'm so inspired by what I see, I want to recreate it.
Does that every happen to you??
I hope so.

The other day I was looking at cards with a coffee/tea/hot chocolate
theme. I fell in love with these stacked tea cups. (Of course, I
love that they are made from gingham paper!)


I cut these images using my Cricut. I haven't made them
into cards or anything yet, but they are just waiting to 
be made into something adorable!
I cut the whipped cream on the red cup out of vellum.
Check back soon...I'll share what I make with these cuties!
Thanks for checking in!

Christmas tags

Every Christmas, I find myself rushing to make cute gift 
tags at the last minute. Every year I say to myself, "Why
don't I make these in summer, when I have time??" 
Well, today I had a little time and decided to
make a few tags to use in December!

I decided to keep them simple...use red and white,
and only have a layer or two.
I started by cutting a bunch of tags, using my Cricut.
The tag shapes I used are from the Preserves cartridge.

I went through my Christmas stamps to find images.
Every time I look through my stamps to find something for a project,
I decide I never have to buy another stamp!! Can anyone else relate
to that?? I have so many nice images I either forget about or
just don't use! Ugh!

These are all images I've had for quite a while...

The sentiment on these tags is a little longer than the tag,
but that's ok. = ) They still look nice!
I love this stamp...it's from a set I bought at Michaels a few
years ago. 
These tags were made with stamps that came with a magazine.
There are quite a few UK cardmaking magazines that come
with stamps or dies. I always check out what's new when
I'm at Barnes and Noble or JoAnn's!

With a little ribbon or bakers twine,
I think these tags will be time saver come December! Now, if
I could only do the same with my Christmas shopping!!

Thanks for checking in and have a great day!

Campin' Critters

Every Friday, Cricut offers an image set to use in Design Space
for free for a few days.
This week it's Campin' Critters.
I found quite a few images that will
be great to use in my boys' Scout scrapbooks.
Here are the images I cut:
There are so many great images to choose from, and a lot
of cute animals. I have quite a bit done in the Scout
books I'm working on, so I just picked a few things
to embellish pages I already have finished.
I've done that with other free sets that are offered, too.
If I have completed pages, I choose an image just
give  a page that  little something extra. = )
Thanks for checking in and have a great day!
