Peace, Love, Recycle.

Hi Everyone!
I was busy in my craftroom yesterday, making a project for Earth Day, and I'm so excited to share it with you!  This project was so fun and easy to make and thanks to Pretty paper, pretty ribbons, did not cost me anything.


The peace, heart, and recycle cut outs  are from Pretty paper, pretty ribbons Friday freebie, the containers I used are empty peanut and cashew containers and the paper is from my scrap pile.  Originally, I was only going to make the recycling container for my empty ink cartridges, but then I realized I needed something for my old batteries, and I had three of these empty container that fit perfectly on my shelf, so I decided to make the peace and love symbols, as well.  I'm sure I will find something else to recycle in the "Peace" container.

Mustache Gracias!

Good morning!
I have a fun project to share today.  I absolutely love these moustache stamps from Jaded Blossoms, so when they announced the challenge was use your favourite Jaded Blossoms stamp, I knew I had to make something with these stamps.


The handle bag is an svgcuttingfile file that I stamped with moustaches. I tied the tags to the projects with black and white twine, for the chocolate moustache I die cut a moustache and for the bag I die cut a top hat.

Row your boat

Hi everyone!
Today I have a cute little boat to share.  I made this little boat to go with the lighthouse I made a few days ago, isn't it cute. I used the svg cuts file picnic in the park and the grafic45 paper by the sea.


The file comes with a box that the boat sits on, but I wanted this one to go with the lighthouse and it looked better on its own.  I will however be making another one with the box, so be sure to come back and check it out.

By the Sea

Hey there Everyone!
Hope you are having a good weekend!  I've been busy in my craftroom, and have another project to share.  This lighthouse is from svg cuts, Seaside svg kit.  The pattern paper I used is grafic45 By The Sea and I embossed the bottom panels on the lighthouse with a brick textured embossing folder.


For the windows, I used a white coloured vellum and inserted a tall, colour changing, battery powered candle on the bottom of the lighthouse and a small battery powered tea light for the top.


For a little more interest, I tied a rope around the bottom portion of the lighthouse and added an anchor.  I think it looks good either way, don't you?  Well, that's it for now, hope you enjoy!

Hey Everyone!
I'm back again with another project to share with you.  This one has got to be my favourite. Yes, it's true, I'm a coke-a-holic!  


The bottle was made using the Surf Shack svg kit from SVG CUTS, with a few modification, of coarse.  I used brown paper for the bottle and red paper for the labels and bottle cap.   I used a font from my silhouette cameo for the "Coke" on the label.


I used my Pretty Cute Stamps for the "You are SODA-mazing" tag which I hung on the bottle with red and white twine.  For the bottle cap I used my Craftin Desert Divas stamp "Smile", 'cause let's face it, that's exactly what happens when I pop open the cap.


If you have been following my blog at all, you've probably figured out that my projects almost always include a treat. This one is no exception!  Cola flavoured gummie candies!  It doesn't get any sweeter than this!!!
