Hot for you

Its amazing what you find when you clean off your workspace.  While doing some rearranging today I came across these cute little hot chocolate holders.  These were some make and takes at the scrapbooking convention that I went to this summer.  So with temps getting cooler these were perfect to make today for those chilly mornings when you just need something to warm those bones.  I plan on making these to give to friends, bank tellers, receptionist and other people you come in contact with where you just want a little something to hand to them.  Enjoy

Studio G Cards

These 2 cards were some that I picked up at Michaels and Walmart, The ghost was from Michaels and so I just wanted to do some quick little things to these cards so I stamped and colored with my copics, inside says Boo where the eyes are and Have a Happy Halloween.  The 2nd card was from Walmart, they now carry alot of studio G products from glitter, stamps, small embellishments and some note cards for 97 cents.  As I have so many stickers and things that aren't really my style, ( you know all that sticker stuff you bought when you first started scrapbooking) well things have changed so I thought what better way to use them than make some quick cards.  The center cutout was already done, so I used a dollar stamp from my collection, ribbon and some stickers.  Real quick and simple even the kiddos could do something like this when they come to visit.  Thanks for looking.

A little like fall

Today is so nice and such a drastic change in the weather, it is only 70 degress today and feels wonderful. So with the little nip in the air I thought this would be perfect for this fall day. I made this center step card and I used flower soft and stickles along with some embelishments that I had on hand.

Here are the instructions for making this card:
Card stock 5 1/2 x 11
Line cardstock up in paper trimmer so that the edge of the card is at the 1" mark. Position the cutting blade at 1" and cut from 1" to 6.5".
Flip card over and do the same on the other side.
Step 2
Place cardstock onto scoring tool and score along the long side of the card from the edge to the cut line at 1", 2" and 6.5".
Step 3
Repeat step 3 on opposite edge of card.
Step 4
Score between cut lines at 5 1/2".
Step 5
Fold at the score lines. The first, third and center score lines are mountain folds. The second score line is a valley fold. Reinforce score lines to make folds crisp.

Step 6
Stamp and decorate your card as desired.
Change it up
Vary the width of the center panel or the two side panels by adjusting the width of the card that you start with. Thanks for stopping by .

Flower Shop

This was done for a weekly challenge on the Cricut Circle, actually when I got this cart I wasn't sure I would really like it. But it does make some really cute flowers and very easy to use. These were cut at 3 1/4 and 2 3/4. I also used some pearl swirls and the butterfly is a stampin up punch.
