Santa Patties II

I couldn't resist when I saw these Santa Patties Here on Qbee's Quest I had to make some for myself.  Okay I had to make 35 of them, but what can I say they are adorable.  There is a lot of work that went into adding the Iiridescent Ice Embossing Powder, but in person worth all the effort.  They just shimmer!  For detailed instructions go to the above link....enjoy!

Big Things Come in Small Packages

Excited to share with you my new Stampin' Up Candy Wrapper Bigz L Die for the Big Shot.  I made these cute candy box wrappers, filled with all kinds of goodies.  I've enclosed everything from candy to money...Whoo Hoo!  I made these out of retired SU cardstock as I made 100 of them.  Plan on making more out of our current Christmas paper, can't wait.  Like I said they are simple to make, the Big Shot does all the work of cutting and scoring.  I made tags from misc. Christmas stamps I had around plus printed some sayings that were on My Digital Studio and punched them out.  This project really made me appreciate what the My Digital Studio can do.  Amazing!

Cricut Cartridge Organizer

I'm so excited I just have to share my fun Cricut Cartridge Organizer I made this week.  I have to admit I saw this idea from a gal selling them on EBay for $40-$60 and I'm like, I can make my own.  I really needing something easier for toting my Cartridges around to my scrap events and this is just what I needed.  I also added my own personal tag made with my Stampin' Up owl punch for some added bling.  I hope these inspire you!

Sweet Halloween Memories

I'm busy getting all my classroom treats ready for tomorrow....never a dull moment, working up to the last second. I thought I better share some things I have been working on, along with a fun Halloween 12 x12 Scrapbook Page I did on a recent scrapbook retreat. It highlights Halloween 2008 when my mother in law was diagnosed with Stomach Cancer. Kids went to trick or treat her in the hospital, she told the kids she dressed up for them. lol It was last Halloween we got to share with her. Hope you have make some Sweet Memories this Halloween....

It's Here: Baby Bootie Tutorial

As promised here is the step by step tutorial for the baby booties. They are super cute and so easy to make. Hope you enjoy!

Baby Booties


Wrap ribbon around cup about 2 1/2 inches from the top. I used 12oz foam cups, you can use 8oz for smaller booties. Then use a pencil to mark your line around the cup.

Here is the top of the cup after I cut it off. You can then use it for your pattern, like I did when I made my 50 booties, much easier then measuring each one. Just wrap it around the new cup and mark your lines.

Here is what you are left with, small cup. Next measure 1 1/2 inches apart, mark your lines and cut straight down about 1 1/2 from the top. I have to admit, I didn't measure each line down as I found as long as they were even it didn't matter.

Then take your hole punch and punch each side of your lines....don't go too close, because when you try to tie your booty...it will break the foam cup. I learned the hard way!!

Tie your ribbon....project complete!
