Bakers Twine Storage

Here is a look at my twine all wound up and then in their new storage container :0) I wrote the color of each marker on the bottom of the tag. These are used for embroidery floss and I have a ton of extras that my mom had given me a long time ago. Now they have a new use :0)


Bakers Twine :0)

Here is what I did last night and today... I have a video up on my YT channel showing how I make this here. I've used up the twine I made previously so I thought it was time to make more. Well, why not make every color I can :0) I used my Bic Mark It markers for this, so many uses for these! I only ended up with 34 out of the 36 because my black is drying out (from child use, hee hee) and when I got my set of the fine the Desert Rose color was completely dried out but, since I had gotten them online I did not want to deal with a return. I made about 3 yards of each color. Now I just have to figure out how to store it :0)

Take a look at this selection...
 Here are some closer shots...

Here are the supplies I used...


Caleb's First Card

This is Caleb's first card ever made completely solo :0) He did this before going to school this morning and I think it's adorable. He did a great job! He also gave me permission to show it to all of you so here it is...

On the inside he just put a lined index card :0) and the critters are on foam squares for dimension.

Hello Kitty Cards

Do you all remember when I cut out a bunch of Hello Kitty shapes with my scraps? You can go to the post Using scraps and Using scraps Batch #4 to take a look :0) Well... I finally did something with them! I haven't used up all of them yet but now I only have a few left. Boy was I on a roll today :0)

Here are all of the cards I made today...

Some organizing and a cold :0(

So Saturday morning I woke wanting to re-organize some of my stuff. I actually started Friday night knowing what I wanted to do. I have been wanting to get some small bookcases for my closet to better suit my storage needs. Target has some bookcases you can put together for $19.99 in store, awesome! Click here to see, they come in different colors. I went and got one and I love it! It only took me 20-25 minutes to put together and it now has a new home inside my closet :0) My plan is to get a couple more and eventually have the closet looking the way I want :0) I also redid my 9 cube storage units. These used to be in the closet but, for me it was not that convenient so I took them out and stacked them. The drawers you can buy for these will also fit on the bookcase :0) One day last week, knowing what I was going to do, I made some tags for the drawers using my lacey ovals die. I think this looks really good. What do you think Tracy? :0)

Here are the photos...

After getting my room finished I thought I felt like I was getting a cold. The boys have been sick on and off and the little guy I watch was sick for a few weeks prior to that so I'm not surprised it finally caught up with me. When I woke up this morning it was in full effect. I definitely have a major head cold :0( Not being a big fan of taking any medicine I will suffer through and hope it goes away quickly!

Life is Sweet card

This is a card I made today when I actually got to sit down for a few minutes :0) My day hasn't gone exactly as planned but, hey, such is life :0) This little bird is from the same set as my previous post over at Scrappin Doodles. The paper is from Target and the sentiment and heart stamps are from a Hampton Art set called cupcakes. I put glitter glue on the beak again to add more sparkles :0) Here it is...


Friend card

Here is a card I made last night for a friend :0) I used paper from a mega DCWV spring pack and the digital stamp is from a set at Scrappin Doodles. Again I used colored pencils, these are my favorite way of coloring :0) I put some yellow glitter glue from Michael's on the beak of the bird to add some sparkle :0) The sentiment stamp is from Heidi Grace and fit just perfectly on the sign. Here it is...

Enjoy your Thursday everyone! We have quite a bit of snow coming down so it's a perfect day to sit around in my cozy pants with my cappuccino and color :0)

Hi card

Here is a simple card to say Hi! The image used for this card I got from Colorful Clipart. Adorable critters! The paper I used is from a Paper Studio pack called Cheeky Monkey :0) I just love the name of this paper! Here it is...


Boy card

This is a card I made last night wanting to use some of the images I recently colored. The image is a digital stamp from Whimsie Doodles. Very cute people images :0) The sentiment is from my Greeting Farm set Later Sk8ter. The paper came out of a jumbo boy stack by Me and My Big Ideas. I colored this image with my Crayola colored pencils. Here is a look...

Happy Wednesday!

Using Scraps Batch #5

Here is another batch of scraps... this time instead of using my trusty cricut I decided to use my nestabilities dies :0) I plan on doing more, this is just the start and it's nice to have them pre-cut so I can just grab one that coordinates with a card. Here is what I have done so far...

Get well card

I needed a get well card for my sister in Nebraska who had surgery today so I whipped this one up to get out in the mail. I used the labels one die for the cuts this time :0)


Tink banner

I have been wanting to make a banner for quite some time now. I knew I either wanted my name or Tink's...Tink won :0) I worked on this banner almost the entire day yesterday. I know it is pretty simple looking but, I have never made one before and wasn't quite sure what I was doing. In the end I love it! It is hanging right above my window in my craftroom so you can actually see it right as you walk in the door.

Here it is...
Here are some close ups...

Hope you all have a fantastic week :0)

More Tinkerbell cards

Okay so, I have definitely been on a roll with the Tinkerbell cards. I made four more today :0) I just love her! And yes, I used my favorite die shape for all of them :0) I used my Crayola colored pencils to color all of the images.

Here they are...

I kept them pretty simple as you can see.

Dress up with Tink

I'm loving the idea of putting Tinkerbell in different colored dresses. They are turning out great, in my opinion :0) Here she is wearing blue!

Have an awesome weekend every one!

I Love You card

I made this card for my mom. She is not a big fan of Valentine's Day since her and my dad are no longer together. She does however, love the colors :0) So... I made her an I Love You card instead of a Valentine one. I used one of my spellbinders dies, this is my new favorite one! It is called Lacey Ovals. I used the largest one, the paper is from a pack I picked up at Target and the cardstock and tiny pearls are Recollections from Michael's. I put tiny little pom pom's on her slippers :0) I also love my new crystal stickles, they highlight Tink's wings perfectly!

Here is the card...
 Here is the inside..
I learned about inking the index (or recipe ) cards from Tracy. Love how it looks!

My favorite Digital Stamp sites...

I have recently discovered a lot of wonderful digital stamp places. When I look for them I like cute and whimsical so being very picky, I have actually found quite a few places that have exactly what I like :0) That being said, I thought I would share them with you so if you are looking these places are great and have very good prices. Some have freebies that are really cute also.

Scrappin Doodles - lots of cute critters

Whimsie Doodles - very cute people

Tiddly Inks - great selection of people

Wee Stamps - adorable whimsical stamps, digital and rubber

Colorful Clipart - more cute critters

Kristi Dailey - good variety

Digi Web Studio - very good variety and awesome $1 sale for sets right now

I have ordered from several of these and love all of the images I have gotten. If you like to color these images are perfect for that and oh so cute. We all have different taste and these sites offer such a variety that you can't lose :0) Enjoy!


Caleb's box

After Caleb and I finished his Valentine box I forgot to take a photo of it. Well, here it is and now even cuter being full :0)

Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Here are some tiny little cards I made for the boys lunch boxes today. They are 2x2 in size. I attached these to some heart shaped boxes of chocolate for them and they won't know until lunch time :0)

Thank you cards :0)

I have a couple of thank you cards to share that I made over the weekend. I have been wanting to use these stamps that, Oh So Sweet Pea gave me in a RAK last year. This is exactly what I want to do with them :0) THANK YOU PEA!!!! I have more to come soon :0)

This one I put loose glitter on her wings.

 This one I put crystal stickles on her wings.

I hope you are all having a great start to the week!

A couple of links

Just wanted to share a good discovery for those of you in the same boat :0)

After discovering that the new cuttlebug does not come with a C plate, used to be able to make the Spellbinders dies compatible, I had to start searching. Michael's did not have one so I came home and started the Google search. Not much luck in the way of anyone having one in stock so I continued the search this morning :0) Have to have one! After reading through a forum, can't remember where, I clicked on a couple of links and with one lucky click, third place mind you, ding ding ding! Found one at this place AJ Scrapbook Essentials. Then I went on the Cricut website and discovered they have them there as well, 20 cent difference :0) As soon as this plate arrives I will be able to get started with my new toy!

Happy Thursday!
