Back to work

This is something I made for my workers, to welcome them back to work after a summer break. I used the Plain Pillow box file from,        The Cutting Cafe
I made them to be 7 inches. I used a spellbinders die to cut out the flap and then I embossed it. I only used half of it
 I added the ribbon for the handle, and that was glued down when I closed the box. I used embellishments for the flap. This file was easy to use.  Check out            The Cutting Cafe for amazing files.

A gift

Here is what my mom made using files from The Cutting Café. She doesn't have a blog so I am letting her use mine. The paper is what we had at home in our stash and the file is called Tea Box holder set. Now I am using my cricut explorer and I was having trouble getting the lid to fit. I contacted Regina the owner of The Cutting Café and she helped me. I was stuck and everything I did, it would not work. She took the time out of her schedule(a couple of nights a go) to help me. She even did another write up and cut it out again with her cricut. I have to say she went way beyond. Some companies would take 1-2 days and this is the holidays so longer, no she wanted to make sure I was able to get it to cut.
Here is the finished product.

Thanks Regina for all your help.

Christmas in July

Here is what I was thinking of making for my Christmas cards this year.  I started with an A2 card  
( 4.25x5.5). The blue card stock is 3.75x3.75, and then I stamped with white ink, the stamp is from Hero Arts-Snowy Winter Nights, The saying is something that I had, not sure where i got it.

Hope to be back soon with other designs, hard to do anything with one hand.

Easter Basket

Easter is almost here and I have a quick way to make a simple Easter basket.  I used paper from Moxxie- Just Hatched, this is double sided, while this paper isn't in the store check out some that is. I also used some 3-d pop dots, and stickles- diamond.  I made a copy of the pattern I used. I used 6x6 paper to make the basket and about 1 more inch for both handles(1/2inch each). I scored the paper at 2" and 4" all the way around. Then one 1 side I cut to just the 1st score line, and did that again on the opposite side. In the diagram it shows to cut on the score line at 2 and 4" to the first line. Do the same on the opposite side. The middle square you cut about 1/4 -1/2 off. On each of the 4 corners you cut diagonal, so that you have triangles. Now on one side bring the triangle points to cross each other as much as you want and attached the 2 handles with a brad or a staple and do the same for the other side.
No that you have your basket, just fussy cut any of the chicks that are at the bottom of the paper and attached with a 3-d pop up dot, add stickles and let dry. Add anything to the basket you want.  I hope this makes sense.

Hope this helps in getting ready for Easter.

Valentine's House

Hello, It is almost Valentine's day and so I thought I would make some cards and hearts, but I came across this SVG file from and I had to make that house. I love it and the fox is so cute. You can even turn this house into may different occasions, just by changing the paper and embellishments.  I hope you like it.
