Pillow boxes

These pillow boxes were made using my cricut, of course. They were Halloween treats for co-workers. The moon I got from Filled them with candy and wrapped with a little raffia and walla... neat treats.


Thought I would show you just how creative my dear hubby is. He made these from printing out a coloring book page. He traced the design on the back of the picture glass with a black paint pen and then filled in the deisgn with model paint. We put scrapbook paper ( see extra comes in handy for everyone) behind it. It has a great 3D effect.

Time to post something a little different. I printed out coloring book pages and then drew them on painted canvas. I then painted the design and outlined with black paint pen. They hang on the walls in the spare room for the grand kids. I think Eeyore is my favorite. Not to bad for hand drawn home decor. I painted the canvas with your basic acrylic paints.

Mother's Day

I made this card with my Paper pups cart. The inside said "That means Happy Mother's Day."

Card Set

This is a gift card set I made. I used my cuttlebug to do the embossing on the pink paper. I just love the way the colors came together.
The box I madewith heavy cardstock and covered with the same paper and flower designs to match the cards. I added some brown ribbon and made a bow for the front.
Let me know what you think and thanks for looking.

I made this card for my husbands co-worker. I made it with the Wild Card Cartridge and my cricut.

Snowman Card

This card was inspired by Mary at I saw her youtube video and had to try it for myself. I used a sheet of velum for the globe to give it a glass like look. A rub off transfer of a wreath completed the stand.

Christmas Card

How cute is this card? I made it with my paper pups cartridge and I embossed the bow with some fun flock to give it a velvety feel.

Christmas Card

I made this card using one of my cricut cartridges and a noel stamp I got from the crafty store in their dollar bin. SCORE!! I added some green and white striped ribbon and tied in a bow. I ran the light green layer through my cuttlebug snowflake folder.

Bunny Box

These are some little bunny boxes I made for my co-workers. My husband saw them and thought they were so cute I needed to make about 12 more for him to take to work. It truly looked like my little bunnies were multiplying all over the place. I filled them with easter grass and some bite size candies.

Card Set

This is a card set I made for a friend of mine at work. I thought the colors went well together. I set a pearl embellishment in the middle.

Glass Block

This is a glass block I made for my oldest sister for Christmas this past year. I used a vinyl saying that I got from the craft store and put it on the glass block. I filled it with metalic flaked angel hair and added a small string of lights. It looks great when it is lit.

Birthday Card

This is a card I made for my sister for her birthday. She loves Garfield. I printed the picture from a coloring book page I found online and then colored it with my Bic markers. I think it turned out pretty good for my first try at digital stamping.


I made this card for my son on his wedding day. I made it using my Stretch Your Imagination cricut cartridge.

Halloween Cards

I made these cards two simple cards for my sister and her daughter last year. I make a card every year and send it to them. I made them with my cricut machine. Thank you my dear hubby for that awesome Christmas gift.
Another Halloween card made with the Wild Card cartridge from Provo Craft. I just love the jewel eyes on the spider.


Here is a set of cards that I made for as a Christmas gift. I even made the little envelope. I am following later with a picture of the box I am going to attempt to make. Hope it turns out Ok.

Well here is the scallop purse I made to hold the cards above. I think for my first attempt it didn't turn out to bad. The idea came from Mona at
