Target mailbox

This adorable Valentine project is all in thanks to Target for these adorable mailboxes they had in their dollar bin. Yep! That's right. These 2 Target mailboxes were just a dollar each. The mailboxes come plain. Painted in colors pink, white, and red. My Target only had 2 mailboxes left when I fell upon these 2 red ones. And I snatched them up right away. From my understanding these Target mailboxes are hot items right now and I can see why. They were so much fun to decorate. Because I only have two I have decided to give them to my son's teacher and aide. What to fill them with is my next project. I decorated matching note cards for each Target mailbox. Which mailbox do you like best? If I happen upon any more of these gems I'm buying a ton! What a perfect "welcome to the neighborhood" or "Blessings on your new home" these would make. If you love the idea and want to make some Target mailboxes for yourself get on over there fast as they are running out!!

Today is New Year's Eve and I would like to wish all of my readers a very Happy New Year! There are many projects on board for the coming year to share with all of you. And of course more blog candy coming soon... *Cheers*

Stamptacular Challenge!

Snowtacular is the theme this week at Stamptacular Sunday Challenge. For this week’s challenge you have to create a card or some other project that has some sort of snow. The snow can be part of a scene on the stamp you use, snowflakes, or you can use some other stamping technique to create your snow…it’s all up to you!

I chose to use snowflakes. I used them as an embossed background and as my main image. This challenge was perfect for using my new Cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder. I've only had it for 3 months and have yet to get the chance to use it! LOL What fun! I hope you decide to join in the challenge. There is a great prize being offered this week.

Happy Holidays!

Paper = SU (Whisper White, Basful Blue, Kraft)
Stamps = SU
Ribbon = SU Bashful Blue & Twine
Extras = Perals, SU Punches(Ticket, Word Window, Modern Label) Fiskars Border Punch, Dimentionals, and Nestabilities

Wedded Bliss

Hello everyone! How was your Christmas? Was Santa good to you? Hopfully you received some scrappy yummies. My hubby gave me a Scor-Pal. I am so excited to own one. Isn't he a keeper? My family and I had a wonderful holiday and I hope you did too.

My cousin and his new wife were married this month in Costa Rica. The reception is here in the states next weekend. To allow all of us who could not swing the cost of the wedding to celebrate. I made them this wedding card with money holder today. Her colors were pink, tan and white. I think SU's cardstock worked perfectly for this color combo. I also used some of my new Just Rite supplies. Can you see where I used my Scor-Pal?

In the process of making this card my hubby & son tried to install my new web cam. It was a little crowded in here to say the least! But we got it working and it is so much fun to use. Of course my son wanted to play with it right then and there. I had ink, stamps, ribbon, etc. all over the place. I don't know about you but I have to complete one project before I start another. So I made him wait until I at least was done with the ink.

Well before we know it new Year's will be here. Do any of you have plans? We usually get snacks, champagne and celebrate at home. I hope you have a wonderful new Year!


Paper = SU (Regal Rose, Natural, Whisper White)
Ribbon = SU Regal Rose SAB set (last year)

Extras = Perals, Dimentionals, Embossing folders for Cuttlebug, Nestabilities, SU ticket punch, SU word widow punch, SU modern label punch)

Thanks for stopping by!

Mojo Monday

Hi everyone! It's been awhile since I have been able to share a project that I wanted to make rather than filling an order. I know it has been allot of the same thing around here lately. All of my orders are filled and it's back to creating on a whim. This gift set is for my sister's birthday. The card is based off of the Mojo Monday sketch for this week. Gosh it's been forever since I did one of their sketches. What fun!!

Have you gotten all of your holiday shopping done? I only need to get a few gift cards and I'm finished shopping. Now wrapping is a whole other story. This Thursday I am baking cookies with my Mom & sisters. I hope to bring home lots of goodies for gifts.

Thanks for stopping by! I love to see you guys.

Money Holder

Good morning! We woke up to temperatures of 2 today. Add in the wind chill and it's -21. Yikes that's cold. Great day to stay inside and craft. These little scallop cards are actually money holders. I made 1/2 a scallop for the inside and adhered only on the ends. I'd show you a pic but I had to write in it before I taped it on because of the large brads and ribbon. Too hard to write on top of those two things. But... the bottom of the card is the 1/2 scallop to hold money and the inside top is a smaller scallop layered to stamp the sentiment and write on. These are for my 2 Nephews who will be celebrating their birthdays this Friday. They are brothers and their birthday's are 2 days apart. Plus their Mom's b-day is Christmas day. Phew... that's allot of gifts for one month.

I hope you are doing well with your holiday shopping and wrapping. Anyone doing some baking? I am getting together with my Mom and sisters next week for a day of cookie baking. Yummy!! I'll take some pics to share.

No time to write supplies right now. I'll be back to add that all in. I must run to work now. Have a great day!

Note Card Tins

Hey Guys, hope you had a wonderful weekend. We cut down our Christmas tree and decorated it this weekend. It's so pretty! That's always a special day for us. We go to the same tree farm each year. They have horse drawn carriage rides, pony rides, Santa Shop with the best hot cocoa around! We have gotten our tree there for the last 11 years. And we still have not won the free tree given away each year.

I have a few note card tins to share with you today. All 5 of these are for one customer. They want to pass them out to their employees as gifts this year. I made them all the same except each has a different accent color. All are filled with 12 note cards and envelopes in black & white and then their accent color.

I wish you all a great week! Thanks for stopping by.

Christmas Tin

I sure hope all of my state side friends had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Did you take part in black Friday or cyber Monday? I did both. I was in line at Target at 3:00 am on black Friday. And I bought some stamping items for me on cyber Monday. Woo Whooo!

Yes, I am still making these Christmas Tins. LOL I keep getting orders for them weekly. I still have 1 more to make. This time around I used a new line of papers that I got at Michael's called AC Patterned Paper (Merrymint). It's so cheerful and bright. I loved working with it. Stampin Up's Baja Breeze matched perfectly with it! *Bonus* The other tin I will do in these papers as well.

Supplies: too many to list.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a great day.
