May 16 Special Project!


Hey Krazies - boy do I have a treat for you today!  I made wine glass candle's!  They are so easy it's scary!

The first one was actually step by step instructions from a Stamp of the Month Club I belong to. The rest are all my own.  Just imagine what you can do with these!  Themes to match rooms, nursery, kitchen, etc.

First I traced the template onto Vellum  You can use this once on 8.5 x 11, or twice on 12x12.  I then stamped the leaves randomly on the vellum and let it dry. Then I masked (first time ever masking yay me!) the lil thingies all over.  Then I made the band around the middle with coordinating paper.  Tied a ribbon around, made the tiny bow with a fork (if you don't know this trick, just google bow with fork) super easy stuff.  Oh and when I tied the ribbon around the shade I actually slipped that "Faith" charm through it.  I then put a battery operated tea light (8 dollars at Michaels for a dozen of them using coupon) and it was done.

After that I looked all through my papers for any fun vellum paper I had on hand and found quite a bit (surprise surprise) so I made these a little while ago.


you can embellish these with anything at all.  One lamp you don't see is a butterfly lamp that I actually punched tiny holes in each of the scallops and it turned out super cute. But one of my kids fell in love and had to have it so that's gone LOL.  These will cost about 2 dollars each (maybe less) if you pick up the wine glasses at the dollar store.  Use a coupon on the tea lights and you probably have vellum on hand.



Click on this photo <<----- until it you have it larger. Then right click and save it.  Print it out (use cardstock if you can) and this will be your template.  You can then put a sheet of vellum right over top and trace it.  Be sure if you have pattern vellum that you trace in pencil and on the BACK side.  Carefully cut it out.  I used my glue gun to go down the 3.5 inch side and overlapped the other side to it.  There you have it - a lamp shade!  Decorate however you want and put the lite inside and you are done.  I highly recommend you use the battery operated lamps - NOT real candles as the lampshade is higher than the wine glass (you can see it in the yellow one above)

When you are done - PLEASE send me a photo - I'd love to see your creations!




Enjoy your day!

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!
