Glass Block-Winter

I need to get less lights...
I really think the glass blocks are beautiful when all lit up and glowing!!!  I bought a couple of them at Hobby Lobby, and thought this time of year is perfect for something all lit up and a little bit festive too. I used Holly Jolly and cut the phrase at about 4x5  (Not sure the exact measurement, but I can get it if needed...) and transferred to the block!  I made a big Christmas bow for the top, and filled it with lights, and Voila!  A pretty Christmas decoration to "Warm" up the season...
Thanks for looking...

Teddy Bear Parade

Christmas came early!!!  My mom sent me this cartridge for Christmas, and of course, I opened it right up and started to play!!!  These bears are darling, and I plan to make each and every one of them, as they are adorable and I can find a reason to use them!!!
I have several cut out and done... so stay tuned for a Teddy Bear Parade in the near future!!

Business Card Holder

Easy as pie to put together... business card holder!  I loved the paper I used, but I think to make these as personalized gifts, I would use something a little plainer... but I cut this one a 7" and its the perfect size! Can't wait to sit this on my desk come Monday morning!!

Thanksgiving Recipe Box

Happy Thanksgiving... well almost!
Thanksgiving seems to be the one time of year, that we make some of our favorite dishes.  Some of my favorite dishes at Thanksgiving time is the poblano stuffing and pumpkin soup, my Hubby makes, and my all time favorite are the dinner rolls that my mother makes every year for Thanksgiving.  Every year I try to make them and for whatever reason, they never quite taste like the ones my mom baked...sometimes I wonder if she didn't leave out an ingredient or two...haahhahahaha... She says, its the altitude... wink, wink!!

Anyways, I thought this year, I would put all the recipes we use this Thanksgiving and put in a special box, so we can recreate our favorite dinner each year without having to dig through books, and loose paper each year.  I cut this using the TBBM2 sized at 8"  I loved the paper so much that I didn't think it needed too much more.

The smaller one I cut at 8" as the 1 piece, and the bigger box is cut also at 8" but used two pieces and put together... big difference... literally!  Haha

Smaller box

Movie Night

Found these cute cuts on Artiste and had to play a little... made the box as big as it would cut- fit to page- and then cut the embellishments to fit the box... I really wanted to use my new embossed folder, and it looked cute on the front and back of the box I thought...

Plan to use this as a gift... perhaps put movie tickets in it along with some goodies... although not many "goodies" fit inside... possibly a single bag of microwave popcorn!  But a fun gift for anyone!  Who doesn't like to go to the movies??

Running ribbon

I got a couple of packages of these darling pins from a Running Store, and thought I could make something with them, as no one really wears pins anymore... so I thought I would make this  rossette and make it fun! I will put a magnet on the back... and hang it on the fridge... I cut it at 1-1/2" x 2 and glued to together, added some curly ribbon and there you go!

Baby card

This was a cute cut on Artiste as well... a baby diaper as the envelope and then the "ruffled" card to fit inside.  Cut at 5-1/4.  I added some baby pin brads to the side and added a Prima flower in the middle.  I wished I had made the flower though, but I have so many of these it is nice to use them once in awhile...  Made this for a friend who is having a baby girl...
