May 17th Post Beyond Birthdays Binder Project

Here ya go ladies and gents - straight from Christie Anderson to my mailbox, to you.  Sorry for it being late - it's all her fault! :)

Christie says: We didn't have the Cricut paper to match this project so I had some paper that we felt would be sufficient.  The "candle tops" were colored in and Perfect Pearls was used for the "fire" and colored with yellow marker once it dried.  Easy peasy peanut butter pie!  The only complaint I have is that the sizing was off, but I've experienced that often.

I think this is super cute!  Christie does some awesome work,
she is very meticulous and careful unlike me. I like to just slop crap together as evidenced in my projects.  I started tagging Christies projects today so you can see which ones are hers.  I know I joke a lot about her but she is a dear sweet friend who has a lot going on in her life right now.  I have the benefit of being home looking for jobs all day and some time to squeeze in a project or three - she does hers at 1am when her boys (husband and son) are asleep and her world is quiet.  I do appreciate her ever so much!

See you tomorrow with another project. Please remember - the more comments you leave on all the projects for May - the more chances you have to win every single binder project we showcase this month!

Happy Crafting my Krazies!

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. 


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!
