May 13 Mothers Day! Cuttle Bug Storage


Happy Mothers day to all of you beautiful women!


I have had quite a few comments about this awesome storage for my cuttlebug folders so I figured I'd tell you how I did it.  All of my small folders and dies are actually hanging up on my Poor Girls Clip It Up system (I'll showcase that in another post)  but of course I can't clip up the 4x6's and 5x7's so I tried a few different ways of storing them.  I finally arrived at the one that worked for me.

In the wood section at Michaels (and Joanns) they have unfinished CD crates.  They are 4.99 (use a coupon to make it even cheaper) and I picked one up with plans to make it all purty and store my folders.  I worked on this a few weeks ago when Christy was taking a coons age to finish ONE project and I had already done all of mine.  She kept interrupting me and telling me what I should and shouldn't do with the polka dots and blah blah - I finally threw something at her and told her to mind her own bees wax. Sheesh


So I picked up 2 bottles of paint for a buck or so and set about painting the sides green and the front and back pink.    After that dried I modge podged the circles all over.  Next day I cut card stock a smidge larger than 5x7 and made folders.  there ya have it.  Believe it or not there are about 25 folders in that box and room for tons more!

If you decide you want to try this method - have fun painting and making it your own - then please send me a photo as I'd love to see what you came up with.


Sorry, I have no idea why on earth I can't align that first paragraph - it won't budge from the center.


Have a fabulous day ladies (and gents) See you tomorrow :)


Hugs and Chirps!

Kricut Krazy is back!

Hello everyone!

I've missed you all!  What a crazy summer it has been.  I just kept walking by my craft room and longing to sit down and do something fun.  I've dabbled in things over the summer but no real crafty fun day.  I've been cooking tons of stuff I find on pinterest (surprisingly most has been a huge hit!) I've tried my hand at washer jewelry - and failed (see photos below) but I'll keep trying.

I didn't realize my phone posted a video I took the other day until I started getting you tube comments and emails LOL So here ya go for those that haven't seen it:




Ok a coupla ya asked about the washer jewelry.  I wanted to make them for my daughters. Krystina's would have Ragan Lyn  on the large washer and 3/14/2013 on the small washer with a blue stone for March.  Amanda's would have Julianna Marie on the large washer and 7/3/2013 on the smaller one along with a red stone for July.  Sigh.  Why does everything look SO much better in my head than i…

Scrappin with my Bug Happy Birthday Blog Hop!

Hey Krazies!

My sweet friend Michelle from Scrappin with my Bug is having a birthday!  We're celebrating by gathering a bunch of fun ladies for a big blog hop that is going to run all weekend long. Lots of fun stuff to see along the way and prizes galore!  Be sure you stop at Michelles blog first to wish her a Happy Birthday! 


My Project
Happy Birthday Michelle!
 Front of the Gate fold card.  I used rub on dots for the top and bottom, 2 buttons to wrap the bakers twine around and cut the flowers from Walk in my garden.  The stamps are misc Birthday stamps and the paper is all DCWV various stacks.  I inked around the flowers with chalk ink (cats eye I think it's called)  Oh and the rub on dot borders are from Stamping Up.  I'm brand new with rubber stamps and will eventually learn how do do it correctly.
 Inside of the card.  It's your Day is from Pink Cricut - one of her stamp sets.... sorry don't remember which. Paper is from DCWV and I inked a lil here and there. 


 Ho…

You are going to LOVE this video. TRUST ME!

How do you store your 12x12 paper?  Do you like those Vertical folders from Cropper Hopper?  See that? 5.88.  I love them, but I needed 15 of them.  I have 5.  Well after putting my thinking cap on I came up with a way to do this for FREE.  and it takes 3 sheets of paper to decorate.  So watch the video then leave me a comment letting me know what you think.

At the end of the video is a contest for some blog candy - who wants a free cartridge?  I don't know what the cartridge is yet because my sponsor didn't tell me what they were sending - so we'll all be surprised YAAAY.

I love comments so please leave me some feedback!
