Hi everybody, today I wanted to share with you a gift box house I made using the house template from Papertrey ink.  I printed it on pink paper, cut it out, scored and assembled it.  I used Papertrey ink stamp set Home Made Stamp Set for the doors and windows and cut the images out by hand.

It's also a little Gift Box.  

Until next time, Beth.

Hi everybody, it is super cold here in Northern Indiana,  -14 without the wind chill.  BBBBRRRR...  Work was cancelled today as well as most everything else in the area.  Yippee.  Anyway, I wanted to share a project I did for Fall/Halloween that involved embossing folders, aluminum duct tape, a Michael's pumpkin, and Tim Holtz alcohol inks.

I cut the aluminum tape to fit around the pumpkin from stem to bottom.  I then ran it thru my embossing machine with a folder.  Used all different colors of alcohol ink on it. and when it was dry, applied it to my pumpkin.  The tape has a back on it, and when you pull it off, it's sticky.  I burnished around the pumpkin ridges so it would lie flat.  That's all, easy.
Until next time, Beth.

Hi everybody, it's been like forever since I last posted.  Things have been crazy around here.  I got a promotion at work and have been working longer hours.  As you know my daughter has gotten into bunnies and we have been showing those extensively.  We got a new lab puppy last year and with dog club that my daughter is involved in, I have been staying really busy.  My house and craft projects are suffering from all of it.  But since winter is upon us, I have had more time to do some crafting.  I started right before Halloween and made a couple of things. I thought I would share one of them today.  This is a vignette I made using the small Tim Holtz canvas.  I turned it around and used the inside to create my scene.  From Grunge board I cut the window using the Tim Holtz window die.  I modified it so it would fit the frame.  I cut the postage stamp die cut behind the window using my Gypsy and Cricut.  Using the Tim Holtz Halloween stamps, I stamped on shrink plastic for the skeleton, spider and little bats in the jar, cut them out and shrunk them down.  Cut little flowers using the McGill flower punch and created small bouquets on either side of the window.  I hope you all like my project. 

Until Next Time, Beth.

Nutcracker Sweet Gyspy Caravan.

Hi everyone, Spring is finely making it's way to Northern Indiana.  I have the day off of work today, and aside from the bleak bare trees and the brown yard, it's going to be a fairly nice day.

I wanted to share with you a project I made from a kit I purchased from Laura Denison  I have purchased several of her kits in the past and they are always fun to make.  You can no longer get the kit, but the pattern is available here.  Once in awhile I purchase kits or patterns to make something with.  It's kind of nice not having to think up a project on your own when all you want to do is make something.

The kit I got had all of the awesome embelishments in it, and it was loaded.  I got the one that used the Graphic 45 Nutcracker Sweet(love Graphic 45 paper).

Here are the pics:


The back of the Caravan holds a mini album.  I need to add a few more embelishements to mine.

thanks so much for stopping by today, Until Next Time.
