Crayon Roll

Whew, it's been a while since my last post, but I've been busy playing. I got a Cuttlebug and a Sewing machine for christmas! So yesterday I went to get some embossing folders and fabric. I picked up the cutest fabric, but didn't have a clue what I was going to do with it yet. Then I remembered a cute tutorial I'd seen for a Crayon Roll up a while back. So I decided to make that my mission today. I am so pleased with how it turned out! I just followed the tutorial found here. Next up, one to hold some Color Wonder Markers!

A Quick Stocking Stuffer!

Before I show you what I made today, I want to let you know that EVERYTHING in Lindsay's shop is 25% off through Saturday!

Every year I fill a stocking for my mom and mother in law. I do this because one year as I was opening my stocking and looking at all my goodies it dawned on me that my mom always does this for me, but who makes one for her? No one. How sad is that?! So I decided right then and there that I would make that my mission each year. The things we get in our stocking are usually not big or expensive, but it is always fun to open them and I always love the things my mom puts in mine (especially the candy!)

So I made this cute little chapstick holder to go in my MIL's stocking. I used Lindsay's Nifty Gifty's SVG template and it was quick and easy. The set is on sale for $2.25 this weekend only!

Here is a picture of the other great things you get in the set.

Now don't forget to stop by Lindsay's blog for a freebie! Sorry no free svg today,
I got a little busy this week.

Cheap & Easy Holiday Gifts! + SVG Freebie!

Hello everyone! This week Lindsay's DT girls are showcasing different ways to package holiday food items. I chose to package Hershey kisses and Wintergreen Lifesavers. I put them in a Starbucks Frap bottle. I removed the label and decorated it with Lindsay's houndstooth cranberry paper. I also used one of Lindsay's new sets called Winterwear to create the digi stamp on the front. The top has a digi from last year's design.

The set includes 21 cute digital stamps to decorate your winter cards and scrapbook projects. All the stamps are black and white but they are easy to recolor however you like! The set includes mittens, hats, sweaters and scarfs in patterns, solids and outlines (great for paper piecing!), 3 sentiment frames perfect for scrapbooking and cardmaking and a cute snowman you can dress up of leave as is! That is 21 stamps for only $4.50!

Here is a little project that my mom had me work on. She is hosting a ladies Christmas party on Monday night and wanted to create some cheap and easy party favors. So she bought several of these cute little candles at Walmart on sale for $1.00 each. She wanted me to help her spruce them up a bit. So I wrapped them in cute christmas paper and tied a ribbon around them. Then I used a digi stamp from Lindsay's Christmas Cupcakes set to put on the top.

Don't forget to stop by Lindsay's blog for a Winter SVG freebie!
Now for your freebie! Here is a Mr. & Mrs. title that would make a perfect wedding card or scrapbook page title. Enjoy!

This & That....

Hello everyone! Sorry once again that I've been lax about posting. I have certainly been busy. More often than not, I've been baking or taking care of little Brett (who is now 3 months old!).

This is perhaps one of my favorite pieces of jewelry that I've made yet. It is in blue/gold colors of my alma mater, Murray State University. I made it for a friend who is currently seeking a nursing degree at MSU.

Here are some more skinny note pads that I made for a customer. She requested TN Vols theme with the names of her friends. If you've never seen these before, check out Kerry's Paper Crafts for a tutorial.
