Graphic 45 French Country Caddy

Hi everyone,
      Just want to share a super cute and super quick project.  I went to Tuesday Morning today and found this cute little spinner caddy. It was already finished and ready to use.  I decided that I would jazz it up a bit.  What better way to jazz it up, than to put some French Country paper in the mix!  I cut up 8 pieces of scrap paper (the caddy is an octagon), inked the edges, and used the tape runner to adhere the paper to the caddy and Viola!  I just love it!  Super eeeeeazy project!  Here are a few pictures, so you can check it out (I have to remember to take a picture of the project before I start on it, sorry).

Thanx for stoppin' by...Hugz from me

October Challenge at Mema's Crafts

Hi everybody,
   There is still time to join in over at Mema's Crafts October "Tic-Tac-Toe" Challenge.  Here are my inspirational projects.  I paper pieced the "AKV Scarecrow Leaves" digi image from Bugaboo and coloured his face with Copics (E40, 41, 42, and 43).  I outlined the image using W2 .  I wanted to do something just a little different, so I made the open edge pockets for the inside.  And for my StitchyBear Digi Outlet image, I used the Spellbinder nested classic circles large, I printed the image out on some pale peachy coloured card stock 6 times, cut out the images using each of the nested circles, and re-created the image in layers using foam tape between each layer to add dimension .   Here are my finished projects:

Here is a peek at the inside of the Scarecrow card.  I love the fall colours.

Cricut Milk Carton Elegant Favors

Hey everyone,
    I hope all is well.  Today I'd like to share a cute little project that would make excellent favors any party.   I've been wanting to try something with the milk carton idea.  My plan was to buy the Stampin' UP! Milk Carton die; however, that baby is "30 something dollars".  Of course that "30 something dollars" does not include the shipping and tax.  Depending on where you live you can add another 18% plus to that "30 something"-NOT!!!!!   Well one day, I was just looking at some of my Cricut carts and happened to come across the milk carton cut (Oh yeah baby)!  It was great!  I stamped my paper first using Amazing Paper Grace's Vintage Alphabet Soup Background Stamp.  I bought it on the JustRite Papercraft site, I used some black Staz-On ink,  I think I used a SU stamp for the greeting but I can find it to give you the name (sorry),  I used some trim that I got from JoAnn and a couple of Prime flowers called Sherwood Rose Cottage (2011).  You can probably still find these flowers on e-Bay; I have not done a search to confirm that, but it would be a good place to start.  Also to hold the top of the Carton closed, I glued one of the flowers to one of the Tim Holtz tiny paper clips.  Here are a few of the pictures I took of my finished project.  This would be a good one to try.  There are also tutorials on the internet that tell how to make a milk carton from scratch, if don't want to buy the Cricut cart (Tags, Bags & More 2) or the SU die.  Some of the Cricut image can be bought individually for a small fee, I'm not sure if the Milk Carton is one but I would give it a try.   Thanks for stopping by and have a awesome crafting day!
