A few years back I saw an idea in a magazine for something called a Smile Box. I incorporated that idea into what I call my Blessing Box. A place to jot down little moments from your life that make you smile and make your soul happy. It’s a very simple process, you remove one of the included papers and write down the moment and then place the note back in the box. When life throws you just a few too many curve balls and you think you might not be able to take one more step, laugh one more

My daughter had a double birthday party last weekend and we needed a gift idea for two four year olds. What four year old doesn’t like candy??? I know none. Therefore, I let Claire choose some candy and we made it into a candy roll gift. It’s funny how I felt like I didn’t have a lot of time to shop for a present, but I sure had the time to make these…and it probably took a little longer. It was fun! I got my feet wet with some of the new spellbinders and I’m loving them. I’m a little

I am loving all these adorable stamps that are coming out this year!! Seriously, I never thought I’d be a huge stamper, but I’m having more and more fun with each one, and Penny Black’s Mimi’s Farm is no exception. It’s adorable! The minute I saw it I knew the exact project I wanted to do (which never happens) and I couldn’t wait to get started!
You only need four things to make these cute little animals. An ink pad, the stamp, and markers, and scissors. Pretty easy/basic necessities. I really wanted to take myself down memory lane and make a

Christmas decorating in our house happens the day after Thanksgiving so Heather has been trying to finish up a few crafting Christmas projects she has been working on. This one is a large ornament that could go on a tree but with the size of it we are going to hang it on our Christmas shelf. When we made the Halloween book there was a plexiglass circle that we did not use and so Heather came up with this idea for the spare piece and it turned out really cute. All she did was cut out a piece of velum

Thanksgiving is right around the corner and Quickutz has some really fun table decorations to dress up your table for the big feast. I remember making fun little crafts as a kid to put at each place setting just to give a little more “festive feel” as we sat down to dinner. This Year my family will be spending Thanksgiving at me parents house and so when I saw these die sets I thought that it would be perfect to continue the tradition by spicing up the place settings with crafts. These die cuts are a lot of fun because

Welcome to our pumpkin patch using Heartfelt Creations Classic Edition Collections paper and Bo Bunnys Serenade paper. It must be the change of season because Heather always gets really crafty in the fall with all the holidays coming up. Heather has a lot of Halloween decorations but after it is all over, and we put all the decorations away the house seems really empty because we really lack in just fall decor. The paper on the front of them is great because it is fall theme not just Halloween. These pumpkins are also great because they can use up a

Here is another name block, this time for Turner using Hearfelt Creations Collection die set with the Antique Truck stamp set that coordinates with it. What a cool look with the stamp on top of the cut out. I also love the Quickutz Zig Zag embossing on this one that looks like tire tread, our son is really into cars and will be so excited for this. Again I cant stress enough how easy this is, Heather and I made some Christmas decorations last year for everyone in our neighborhood and it only took one night from start to finish

The new QuicKutz dies are out and are a big hit! If you have a party in your plans, you should really consider some of these new dies! I decided to take a few minutes and play with a couple over the weekend!
My neighbor’s birthday is the 4th of July. I was out of town for most of the weekend, but when I got back I wanted to give her a little something! I used the Gift Bag Cookie Cutter die, cutting it out with my Epic Six Tool. I stuck a flower and a button on the front, some

Pride can be such a confusing word! It can be good as far as taking pride in our family, appearance, etc, but it can be a detriment when it causes you to be stubborn about change! When Sizzix released the Big Shot Pro Machine I was NOT going to get another machine! I was determined not to cave in! I did not need it, did not have room to put it….. bad pride. Thanks to several customers calling in to find out how to do things with this fabulous machine, I finally decided it would be helpful for me to

Okay, so I have to share with you this incredibly fun idea that one of our local customers shared with me today! Using the Heartfelt Creations exclusive Spellbinders Die- Daisy Patch and her die cutting machine, she has made these adorable hair bows out of soda cans! Amazingly, the cans do not dull the dies and are not sharp once the shapes have been cut! Awesome!
Laura started her hair bow business only 3 weeks ago and her hair bows have literally blossomed on Facebook! She is a stay at home mom who also runs a daycare out of her home!

It is crunch time to get you gifts done for Mother’s Day if you haven’t already! Here’s an idea for a card box if your mom likes cards, but needs a place to store them, or you can fill the box with pre-made cards for her to use when needed! Of course I used roses, because that is what mom’s like! Right?
The paper I used for my tin box is the Rustic Paper Stack from DCWV ( It is an exclusive to JoAnn Stores), and the Shimmer Stack for the roses. To cut the roses I used QuicKutz Roses die.

One of the great things about Spellbinders is that they create products that enable you to coordinate other products with their dies, such as stamps from Heartfelt Creations, Just Rite Stampers and Sparkle N Sprinkle!
I don’t know how many of you have used these stamps, but they are all fantastic! I would like to touch a little on each of these just to let you know a little bit about each one!
Heartfelt Creations not only make their stamp sets to coordinate with Spellbinders Dies, they have also collaborated with Spellbinders to create their own exclusive dies! Their precut stamp sets
