Target Mailbox

OK, so I bought a ton of the target mailboxes... I made this one a while back, but wanted to show that they are not just for Valentines... I made this box as a gift for a New Home...put a gift card inside!  Easy to make and proves these boxes can be used for anything!

Monkey Business

I thought the Monkey on this cartridge (Sweethearts) was adorable!!!  Un-traditional Valentines Day card for Hubby,
but it is really for me...right?  Hahaha

I am always having to remember passwords and user names for different sites, or log ins and I simply can't remember them!  Yes, I normally use the same ones, but not consistent... so I thought I could use a book near my MAC and write them down as needed.  That way they are handy!
I used Sentimental cartridge and cut the file folder and the words "confidential"  the set of "eyes" came from Graphically Speaking cart! Inserted lined paper to write on.  Used the Bind it All and there you have it!!  Simple!

Valentine's Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Valentine's Blog Hop!  I am glad you found me all the way from Lechristina3 

I am always looking for something a little different each year to package a Valentine's Day gift.  Last year I ran out and bought dozens of the Target mailboxes, and then realized I have a cartridge that has a cute mailbox on it- Lovestruck!!  So, this year, I will let everyone else grab the Target mailboxes, as I have dozens sitting in a box already...Hahahahahha
I cut the mail box Fit to Page from the Love struck cartridge and the hearts I cut at 1" using the scallop heart and inside heart measures at .92 from Doodlecharms.  The phrase "I Love You" was cut from Gypsy wanderings at 1.47"  I don't know why the measures are so funky, I was just playing around on the Gypsy...
The note card measures 3x3 and the heart is from Lovestruck.  Pretty simple to make!!!

Now, you are off to the next stop Buggin Out Paper Crafting Chic  on the Valentine's Day Blog hop, but before you go, of course you will want to leave a comment and let me know what is your favorite Valentine's Day Candy, so you can be entered into the drawing for Blog Candy!  My favorite candy is dark chocolate covered just about anything!  Hahaha  Thanks for visiting!!

Minnie Mouse embossing folder and die, stamps and $10.00 Michael's Gift Card.  I will draw a name and post the winner on January 11th.

If you got lost along the way, go HERE to the beginning!

Note Cards

I am always looking for something quick to grab when I need to write a quick note.  I usually end up grabbing a post it note and thinking, I should make something cute- but too late.  So, I was going through my stash of cartridges that I NEVER use, and found these sweet note cards from Sentimental!  I cut these at 3-1/2" and really there are only two cuts!  However, the one cut with the words "hello" are difficult to cut out since I could never get my settings right!  Eventually, after going through lots more paper and work than they were worth, I got out the Gypsy and removed the "hello."  You could always add a ribbon or bow or bling to really jazz these up, but I think for something quick to grab, these are perfect!
Thanks for looking!

New Year's Blog Hop!!

Happy New Years!! You found me on the New Years Blog Hop following scrapincovers!!
Every year I make New Years Resolutions- now keeping them is another story, but one resolution was to use a craft tool that I “just had to have, but rarely use!”  In my case, that was the Bind-It-All…

These note books are perfect for my purse and craft room making notes of supplies I need- nothing worse than getting to Michael’s or Jo Ann’s and forgetting the adhesive!!  Hopefully, this will help me become a little more organized- another New Year’s Resolution of mine!!

I used Car Decal’s for the Cricut Head cut at 2-3/4”
 Rock Princess- tattoo cut at 2-3/4”
Book covers measure 5-1/2” x 3-1/2”
Paper inside cut at 5-1/4”x 3-1/4”
Modge -Podge
Bind-It-All using ½” rings

Thanks for visiting!! I do have blog candy (Two Cuttlebug folders/$10.00 GC to Michael’s) to give away to one viewer… just leave a comment and tell me one of your New Years Resolutions and a way I can contact you!  I will draw one lucky winner January 3rd!
