Pinewood Derby Sign

Friday, April 12th, 2013

I am the Cubmaster in our neighborhood and our Pinewood Derby is coming up so I thought that it would be nice to make a sign for the Scouts to take pictures in front of with their cars. I started looking through my stuff and found a wood grain stamp from Hero Arts and Heather found some paper for the car that had sparkly wood grain for the car from the Playtime Stack by Die Cuts with a View. I think that it turned out and it will make a fun backdrop for a lot of proud scouts holding their cars that they have worked so hard on. These kind of things are so easy and quick to do, if you have an event, especially a pinewood derby, go and get crafty and make a fun sign for it.

Teacher Appreciation Gift Idea

Friday, March 8th, 2013

It is Teacher Appreciation Week so Heather and I thought a fun handmade gift would be fun to give to our kids teachers, here are a few ideas that you can use to thank your teachers for all they do. For the first idea we just went to the store and picked up some cheep clip boards and decorated them. For the paper we used DCWV, the background was from the Kidlet Stack and everything else was from A Type of Art because it really related to teaching with all the numbers and letters. We also found two Cricut cartridges that had some fun school related cutouts that was a nice finishing touch.

As for the paper clips they are so simple, we just used Hero Arts Remember Your kindness stamp set because it had a stamp that was a circle and cut out an extra circle and basically glued the two circles together sandwiching the paperclip.

Our kids are really excited to give these to their teachers, they wrote a nice little thank you on the back of them with a marker. Coming from a teacher please take a few minutes to make a nice little gift for your students teachers, it really helps to know that they are appreciated for what they do. We did 2 different ideas for you to hopefully take and go with, click here to view the other post.

A Gift for Any Occasion

Friday, December 28th, 2012

Here is a last minute gift that we put together for my Grandpa King for a Christmas gift but it would work for any occasion. When my Grandma was alive my Grandma and Grandpa loved to sing together so we decided to use music paper to make this name plate so we grabbed our Performance Stack made by Die Cuts With A View. We just cut out an oval out of a piece of wood and routed the edge but if you don’t want to do that you can just get some pre-cut at most art supply stores. Then we just painted the board and then we just grabbed our handy old Mod Podge and stuck on the paper, die cut letters, and embellishments from Cricut. We literally finished this project from start to finish in about an hour so if you are in need of a quick gift idea try this one out.

Christmas Gift idea using Want2Scrap

Friday, October 26th, 2012

Check out this fun gift idea for Christmas or birthdays using Want2Scrap’s Album set. This was so easy but creates a nice hand made gift for anyone that likes to scrapbook. We used the 8×8 corrugated cardboard album and just mounted First Edition 8×8 paper on each side of the cardboard. Then you just need to add your designs  to fancy up the front of it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It is that time of year again to start thinking about Christmas and what to give others. We really like giving homemade gifts to parents and siblings so we are always looking out for ideas for them. Luckily we have quite a few in the family that enjoy scrapbooking as well.

Deer Hunting Layout

Friday, October 19th, 2012

I have had hunting on my mind lately as the deer hunt is just around the corner so I thought I would create a hunting layout from last years pictures. It is always fun to throw on our orange and get out in the woods and walk around. Last year I went out with my dad, Brother-in-law, and his two kids. It was a lot of fun and a lot of hiking.

For this layout I tried to use a lot of fall/outdoors colors to relate to the pictures. The texture is from Spellbinders M-Bossibilities Collection which is perfect for hunting with the tire treads and footprints. These textures are so much fun and can add so much to a layout, I didn’t even have to use any patterned paper. Click here to check out the M-Bossibilities Collection, there are a lot to choose from and like I said they can dress up any layout. The leaves are cut using Spellbinders Little Leaf Sets, and everything else (deer, compass, and letters) are from our Cricut.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

To all those hunters out there, GOOD LUCK this weekend!

“Die Cuts With a View” and “My Minds Eye” paper stacks

Friday, August 24th, 2012

Heather and I decided to do some card making with the Die Cuts With a View and My Mind’s Eye paper stacks this week. We have been invited to a lot of weddings lately so Heather wanted to make a few cards for them, so a few nights ago we put the kids to bed, threw in a movie, and made cards. Heather’s “Legacy Card” is very fancy and has a nice wedding feel to it with the ribbon, Vintage Lace Accents, and Spiral Blossom that she used. Heather loves the spiral blossom and it really makes for a nice three dimensional card. She left the interior dark and wrote a nice little congratulations note with a white ink pen. It really turned out nice don’t you think? Die Cuts With a View’s STARDUST Mat Stack was the perfect paper to use as the background because it looks very elegant with the interesting designs and gold foil they have added to it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My “Bee Happy” card isn’t as fancy but I had a lot of fun with it. I grabbed the My Mind’s Eye HONEY paper pad and Cricut’s Just Because Cards cartridge and made my card a bee theme.  The papers in the Honey paper stack made this card a breeze, I just had to cut it out and glue it on. The most work was the “Bee Happy” words, I cut the same letters out in both a dark and light yellow and then cut the light ones into strips and glued them onto the dark yellow letters. I though after that it would have been a lot easier just to find a striped paper and cut it out with it but hey I like doing things the hard way. I added a paper from the stack to go on the inside just to finish it off.

 

 

 

 

 

 

It was a fun night of card making and hey we saved ourselves a trip to the store to buy a few cards. Being a designer is a lot of fun because if forces us to get down and get creative. It is way too easy to let life get in the way and keep putting off the things that you really enjoy doing.
