Santa Struck! & Not enough time or tags


(Santa Struck Supply List below)

Even though I got most of our shopping done on Black Friday, it still seems like Christmas snuck up on us again and with a vengeance. We did manage to get our Christmas tree up the first week of December, which hasn’t happened in a very, very long time but not all the decorations were hung or placed to my liking—oh well!  Next thing I knew, it was time to make batches upon batches of Heavenly Layered Bars (my husband refers to it as my Christmas Crack), volunteer for kids’ Christmas parties at school, and manage to get to school Christmas programs by 6 p.m.—all in one day—oh and work, feed the kids, and go to the bathroom (LOL!).  It happened but barely, even the bathroom (LOL) thing.  Me and the kids are off for the next couple of weeks and we plan to hug, craft, and be merry!  I’m sure it’s just as hectic if not more so for everyone else on the planet.  How did we get ourselves in such a jam for the holidays? I still haven’t wrapped any presents nor found a gift for my mother-in-law.  That, I hope, will happen today.  On Christmas morning, as always, I plan to make Monkey Bread, grits, and this year, start the crock pot using a recipe of scalloped potatoes and ham.  I really don’t want to make things difficult.  Relax and be merry.  Just have fun and be with our family. Simplicity is key.  I really don’t know how other families deal with and accomplish as much as they do for Christmas—cheers to you all for your hard work and I hope your families treat you with the respect and love you deserve.

The layout above was inspired by a visit to see Santa last weekend.  My children, just like your children I’m sure, tell you all year what they would like Santa to bring them for Christmas.  When my children were presented with Santa’s lap and his ear, I could not believe what I heard! They were star struck and stunned by the legend himself.  Couldn’t even utter the words they had been telling me for a full year.  My son is a full-blown video game fanatic.  What did he tell Santa he wanted? A car and a plane—I’d never heard that a day in his little life.  My daughter, on the other hand, took the crowd by storm (and might be a future candidate for Miss USA), “I just want my family to have a merry Christmas.”  It warmed my heart to hear them utter such cute nonsense and reminded me of one of my favorite holiday movies, “A Christmas Story”.  I still have not found time yet to see it this year—I’m adding THAT to the list. 

I used my circle punch to punch bottle caps from Carina Gardner’s element collection for the middle of the rosettes.  Also, when I die cut the rosettes from the digital kit papers, instead of folding a couple of them and using them as rosettes, I used them at the bottom of the photo/journaling block as scalloped borders.

Vintage Christmas Element Collection--COMING SOON!
and Essentials Plus Mega Collection by Carina Gardner.

Other Supplies:  Tim Holtz Rosette and Mini Rosette Sizzix Dies, Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink, small circle punch, sewing machine/thread, printer, etc.

Did I tell you I happened to squeeze in some time to get some tags done?  I just couldn’t help myself.  This year I noticed a big trend online--tag making.  In noticing that, I went searching the internet and found it’s been a trend for quite some time now—thanks to Mr. Tim Holtz! I’ve had his Vintage Photo distress ink for years but really didn’t know what wonderful, cool coloring tools these distress inks were until I took an online card class, “Inspiration Showcase” by Jennifer McGuire a couple of months ago.  Since then, I’ve purchased quite a bit of Mr. Holtz’s inks, dies, tools, stamps, etc. Thanks, Jennifer.  If you haven’t taken this class, I suggest you do so.  My fingers haven’t been this inky in years!  It really revitalized my love for stamping.  Have you seen Unity Stamps?  Soooo cute! Have you seen the new Hero Arts 2012 stamps—amazing!  Oh my wallet hurts but my tags have never looked so good!

With holiday colors in my children’s clothes, holiday decorations abound in the house, and holiday-themed aisles in the stores, etc., I felt the need to just take a break from it all today and design with some spring colors and patterns.  It helped.

Boo To You!


The above door decor was inspired by a project I’d seen at simplykellyb.  The door decor rosette is a whopping 18 inches in diameter!  I had to put my hybrid spin on it by printing some papers and elements from the Cosmo Cricket Haunted Paper Pack Collection and Haunted Candy Candy available at  The word art was matted by a die cut from the paper collection using the CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge.  Some Tim Holtz Walnut Distress Ink was applied to the rosette and perfect pearl pigment powder (spray) applied to activate/accentuate the distress ink. A 3D flower was die cut from the paper collection using the CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge with a black sharpie using the Cri-Kits insert.


This year I thought I’d have some fun with die cut paper on my pumpkin!  I die cut from the Cosmo Cricket Haunted Paper Pack Collection using the Happy Hauntings Cricut Cartridge.  The “ribbons” were made by ripping some white cotton fabric and coloring them using glimmer mists.

Hope you all have a boo-ti-ful, happy, and safe Halloween!

The Raven ATC (artist trading card) Set

For the past few weeks, I’ve been researching the joy of making ATC’s and decided to jump in the hybrid way using The Raven Mega Collection by Carina Gardner (available at coupled with the Happy Hauntings Cricut Cartridge.  I’ve been working on these little babies, little by little, all throughout the month of October and have enjoyed every minute of it.  If you haven’t tried this venue of paper crafting yet, I DARE you to!  Instant crafty gratification. 


I even die cut boxes using the Spring Holiday Cards Cricut cartridge to hold my Raven ATC collection.


The ATC is a good size to experiment with different paper crafting/stamping techniques you’ve been wanting to try.

Splendid Finds!


I’m in love with these Feedsack papers by Splendid Fiin’s (available at, my Cricut, and the spontaneity of finding something that can be useful and made for me personally.  This shelf was found at my local thrift store but needed some drawers to make it more useful.  I printed some Feedsack papers onto thick cardstock,  die cut them using the box from Cricut Sweet Tooth Boxes cartridge (fit to page), added a “handle” using a label from CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge (cut at 1-inch), which was embossed using my Cuttlebug, and attached to the box using brads.  A circle punch was used to cut a half circle at the top of each box so that I can peek at the contents of the boxes.  Voila! In less than half an hour I had something I was proud to display.  I love craft technology!

Monthly Inspiration Binder


Have you ever been so overwhelmed by a scrapbooking tool/embellishment that it completely spins you into overdrive?


I was so overwhelmed with inspiration using Splendid Fiin’s Evidence Notes and Frames that I spent most of the weekend putting together a handmade binder I didn’t know I even needed!

It became so clear to me.  Every month, I complete about four to six projects, either scrapbooking, papercrafting, sewing, or home decor.  Quite often, I find inspiration everywhere—online through tutorials, on my phone in apps such as craftgawker, looking through home decor or scrapbook magazines/sketch sites, or looking at products in a catalog.  It occurred to me that keeping a tangible binder with these ideas might make life easier for me.  I can actually PLAN to do them.

For each one of the above subjects, I’ve made a divider using the note frames as a prompting tool in my binder.  Each divider contains information and a picture of the inspiration I’ve found.  The information includes the tutorial or origin of inspiration, the month I’d like to complete it, why it inspired me in the first place, and what products I would like to use to complete that project, etc.  Each month, I am going to print out the note card and place it in my binder with hopes of completing it.  If I don’t get to it that month, it stays in the binder until I complete it—then onto another inspiration note card prompt.  A lot of times, I find some pretty good inspiration out there and save it to my browser, phone, etc., only to find I’ve forgotten about it.  At least if I print out these prompts and save them some where tangible, I can actually DO them and keep the inspiration alive by planning to do them.  I’ve included plastic pockets in my binder, so that I can store/save sticky notes for those ideas that pop in my head from time to time. 

The binder itself is not cumbersome, small but not too small, and was made using a lot of the tools/mediums that inspire me in the first place. It was binded using principals from this tutorial by Francine Clouden.  I used loose-leaf binder rings so that I could add to my binder instead of using the Zutter O-wires.  Also, I discovered that my Cricut will cut canvas sheets.  I pressed Heat-n-Bond to the back of 1 canvas sheet, trimmed to 12-x-12, that I had previously painted on.  I cut 2 of the bracket cards from this canvas sheet using the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge (fit to page), one for the front of the album and one for the inside of the album, using fabric settings on my Cricut Expression 2.  I then cut the same shape again from chipboard, using chipboard settings and my deep cut housing with blade.  I pressed the canvas die cuts to this chipboard piece, one on each side.  You would not believe how sturdy it feels. It’s going to last.  As you can see from the picture, I can keep a pen in the binding.  I’m hoping to replace the pen with one of those smash book pen/glue sticks by K&Company.  That would be more useful, I think for something like this.  The pen is attached to the binding by sewing and tying  one hair tie, cut in half, to the holes that were placed by the Bind-it-All.  A hair tie with button was also used to make the closure.  Paper bag pockets were included to store sketches, magazine clippings, etc.  All in all, it was a lot of work but didn’t seem like it at the time because I really wanted to see the idea come to fruition.  I’m very satisfied with the outcome and hope it inspires someone to make an inspiration binder of their own.  Here are some pictures of he outside and inside.  TFL!


The doily and colored label (seen on the back) are from the CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.  “Craft” is from the Word Collage Cricut cartridge.  The Ohh-LA-La! mat is from the kit of the same name available at by Jodie Lee.  The folder pages you will see in the binder is also available in this kit but will be full 12-x-12 pages. I printed and then cut them using my Sizzix folder die.  The dress form is a rubber stamp, stamped on the paper, then cut and attached.  The heart was a chipboard shape I had lying around, embossed using a Cuttlebug embossing folder, painted with red acrylic paint, and then UTEE was applied in several layers to add dimension.  


Here’s a peek at the inside paper bag pocket where I included Becky Fleck sketches that inspire me.


Above is the scrapbooking inspiration prompt.


Plastic pocket that holds some sticky notes for those inspirational a-ha moments.


Above is the home decor prompt.


Another sketch pocket and plastic pocket to include magazine clippings, etc, that may come and go with my binder.


Above is the papercraft inspiration prompt.


Card sketch inspiration pocket, perhaps I could add some quotes/sentiments that might inspire me as well. 


Above is the sewing inspiration prompt.


I’m sure ideas will pop in my head following the printing of the prompt, so I can jot them down in the back of each prompt.  Also, another pocket for sewing projects I may find in magazines, catalogs, etc.  In this plastic pocket, I might include color inspiration, like paint chips, palettes, etc.

July Projects with Art Philosophy!

I’ve been having quite the good time exploring Close To My Heart’s new Cricut Cartridge. It’s got a ton of useful shapes and banners, an appealing and useful font, cards, borders, 3D flowers, and quite a few boxes that aren’t available on other cartridges like the French fry box pictured below.  Plus it coordinates with stamp sets made by CTMH.  The cartridge even comes with three stamp sets and chipboard shapes that coordinate.  This partnership has got me thinking about using stamp sets I already own with my Cricut.  I've probably done this in the past but this has inspired me to try it some more, also some computer journaling with it as well.  Anytime I can use things I already own with my Cricut makes me a happy crafter! 

TIP:  When using stamps with Cricut shapes, I’ve found it easier to outline the shapes with my Cricut pens, run the cardstock back through the Cricut, cutting the shapes, and then while the shapes are still stuck on the mat, I stamp the appropriate images.  Also, the sizes are listed on the stamp sets, but I’ve found I like cutting the images 1/4-inch and even 1/2-inch larger so that I have a bit of a border around the shape.

Evidence of the Disney Magic


( supplies:  EZ-PZ Template 08 by liv.e designs)

We decided this year, instead of spending money on some elaborate birthday party for Gwen in our hometown, that we would put money toward a family Disneyland vacation on her birthday instead.  This was the best decision we’ve ever made for a birthday party.  The above picture was taken on Gwen’s 8th birthday at Ariel’s Grotto inside Disney California Adventure Park where Gwen had lunch with her favorite princess, Ariel.  We also got to meet and take pictures with all the other princesses as well.  Her birthday marked the opening day of the new Ariel Undersea Adventure Ride.  We didn’t plan that but what a nice surprise. She also received a complete Disney Diva makeover that morning at the Bippity Boppity Boutique in Fantasyland at Disneyland.  Towards the end of the night, we watched the new World of Color water attraction on the California side which was brilliant by the way and she got to pick out a new Ariel costume at the Disney store on our way back to our hotel.  It really was a magical birthday--one she will never forget and neither will our family.  The downside—well, what the heck are we going to do next year?

Check out the new family portrait with Mickey—this will probably only happen once in a lifetime—ALL of us looking at the camera and smiling—SO worth this trip!

Yipppeeee! It’s Summertime!

Well, not exactly.  Our weather hasn’t been cooperating but the school year is coming to an end and we’ve made plans for a little family trip excursion.  Photos will follow, I’m sure.  Lots of things have been happening lately.  Brandi has graduated community college with her AA and is transferring to State this Fall; Jake will be graduating from high school pretty soon, in about a week and a half; Raiden is READING!  Gwen will be turning 8 by the end of this week (hence the family trip excursion).  I’ve been playing (quite frequently) with my new Cricut Expression 2 (Anniversary Edition).  My hubby got it for my birthday/Mother’s Day present.  It cuts like a dream and I love all the content that came preloaded.  Here’s a sample of the things I’ve been creating with it, especially with all the lovelies I’ve been printing from

I need some warmth!

It’s been a cold couple of weeks here in Jackson, CA, and I’m sure throughout the country.  If I were daring, I’d post a picture of the attire I’ve been wearing lately—sweats with long-johns underneath, my husband’s thick t-shirt, followed by hoodie, followed by flannel, followed by lap quilt.  Did I mention my Amador County slippers—Ariat Fat Baby boots with slipper socks, so the cold can’t penetrate to my toes.  If that happens, I will be trapped on the couch for sure.  I’m a sight and not an attractive one.  We had two full snow days here in our school district, but the snow never got to my front door—just the biting cold that accompanies it which makes me feel like we got jipped this year.  Oh well—the winter’s not over yet Puxatony Phil!  If I weren’t such a penny pincher, I’d use the wall heater, but that’s not going to happen.  To all of you East Coast gals, I must sound like a whiny baby, but hey, 25 degrees when you’re not used to it is COLD.  To help beat the cold, I thought I’d scrap some summer pictures.  It didn’t help much, but my eyes liked playing with the hybrid Cosmo Cricket goodness that will arrive at VERY SOON!
