Still cycling along…

I am so honored that Little Yellow Bicycle asked me back again to be on their ‘Splash’ cycling team! This collection is fabulous! And of course, I just love all the LYB embellishments! It’s hard to not want to pile them all on one project! LOL!

I have two spots for projects this month, but here is my first! I am really into making little gift sets (bags, boxes.. more boxes) and cards to go with them, so.. that’s what I did!…. “I mean REALLY. How many stinking bags and boxes is this chick gonna make?” <—- That’s what I imagine you saying.  Ah well.. It’s what I do.. it’s what I like to make. So.. here’s a bag! A burlap bag though! I haven’t done one of these yet.. and now I love ‘em.. so be prepared for more. There. I’ve warned ya! There will surely be a burlap infestation going on here soon enough!

Photobucket

But c’mon.. how stinkin’ CUTE is this! Really now.

No really.. tell me how cute it is!

Photobucket

Photobucket

The tag is my favorite part! I stitched a piece of acetate over the tag and filled it with sand! Then stitched over the top to close it up… snazzy stuff right there, folks!

Photobucket

That little burlap and felt flower was my inspiration on making this bag. I saw the burlap on this flower and I was DYING to cut into my new pile of burlap I got.. I’ve seen burlap bags everywhere, but most recently from my friend Thienly at Mod Paperie.  So I cut some up and stitched it with a pretty teal thread. I love how the thread color just pops against the light colored burlap!

One more pic of the bag.. the stitched fish.. “OK, Tamara.. we’ve seen the stinkin’ bag already!”

Shhhhh… just enjoy the bag… embrace the bag… looooove the bag.

Photobucket

*throws hands up* OK, OK.. I’m done! No more bag pictures.

But I have a caaaaard….

Photobucket

Photobucket

I cut along some of the waves on the patterned paper with my craft knife, rolled them down a bit, and stuck a fish in it! Looks like the fish are happily swimming along.. minding their own business.. until a shark sneaks up behind them… and then.. well, this is a family blog, people. I am sure you can imagine what happened next.

*Hands Mr. Shark a toothpick*

OK, carrying on… one more pic…

Photobucket

I love, love, love andwannamarry this vellum tape here! I like it even more than washi tape! This collection comes with several strips of vellum tape. And well. it’s awesome. You need it. Trust me.

 

So, whatcha think? Thanks for stopping by today! I’ve got a few little projects in the works for a few DT’s.. and trying to think of one more quick SVG Cuts project before I get busy with CHA projects and planning.

Alrighty, that’s it! See ya later!

Beachy Doorhangers – An SVG Cuts project!

**If you are looking for the ECHO PARK blog hop, please go HERE**

 

Ooooh, how I wish I was at the beach right now! Sounds so nice! Last time we went it was so chilly.. now I wanna go when it’s actually warm and my kids don’t have to wear sweaters. But with summer here, I’m sure the beaches are pretty crowded. And if I am going to sit out looking like a beached whale, I don’t want a bunch of people there to see it! LOL!

So, SVG cuts released this Wet N Wild SVG Kit recently. It was instant LOVE! I love ‘cutesy’ stuff so I had to jump on it and make something! Especially after seeing the cute whale freebie file! I was originally just making these for ‘fun’ and thought they were too simple for a DT project, but hey.. Mary and Leo liked them, so here they are! They are so bright and fun and I hope they inspire you to use those winter themed doorhangers from the December Doorhangers kit and put your own twist on them!

Here’s my summer/beachy doorhanger treat boxes!

Photobucket

What child would not just love these? I used Fancy Pants ‘Summer Soul’ papers (mostly). Love all the colors in them!

Photobucket

Photobucket

I used my Epiphany Crafts shape tools (Round 25 and 14) to create ‘bubbles’.

Photobucket

Photobucket

I layered two wave stripes to create some dimension.

Photobucket

How cute is that little whale?

That’s it! So what do you think?.. They are super easy and fun to make and I hope you give it a try. For full details on sizing, you can go HERE.

You will need the following SVG Cuts collections:

I cute everything with my Sizzix eclips! All those tiny little pieces cut AMAZING!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Baby, you’re a fiiiirework!

‘Come on let your colors buuuuurst’

Yeah.. I actually do not like that song… at.all.. but it was a fitting title for this project!

 

**If you are looking for the Echo Park blog hop – IT IS HERE!*

 

I was not feeling good last night, couldn’t sleep, so I got up and did some crafting.. (Yeah, not many people actually get up and DO things when not feeling well.. I know.. I’m a special kind of freak) I decided to use what was already laying on my craft table, some patriotic papers! And lucky me, SVG Cuts just came out with their latest Stars and Stripes kit! I LOVE it! That little firecracker box was calling my name! “Taaaamara… come plaaaay wiiiith meeee”.. Creepy little firecracker! It’s like, at least buy me dinner first before coming on to me like that, right?…

lol..

So, at midnight I was up making a firecracker box. I finished that, and decided to make a little treat bag to go with it. These are both fairly simple to do. The firecracker goes together very easily! Remember, it was late night feeling icky crafting.. so my creative juices were not flowing as well as they usually do, They were more like, trickling out.. LOL! I do LOVE the set though! So fun! *ka-booom!* I changed up a few things to make it my ‘own’. I love taking SVG Cuts files and using the boxes, cards, etc. as a ‘base’ and doing my own thing from there. *smiles*

Here’s my firecracker gift set! And yes.. I think I’ve come to realize that if I make a 4th of July themed project; it will most likely have wire and stars sticking out of it, lol..

Photobucket

And now the bag..
Photobucket

Photobucket

What do you think? Does it make you want to burst?..

Please don’t. That would be quite the mess. I don’t like messes….. unless it involves chocolate.

 

Here’s some design tips!

  • Firecracker cutting file from SVG Cuts‘Stars and Stripes’ SVG Kit! - Mine is sized to 8.5″ wide. I would have left it full sized, but my papers I wanted to use were trimmed a bit and the files wouldn’t fit.
  • Papers.. The deliciously awesome Pebbles ‘Let Freedom Ring’ I love it!
  • The star tin pin is from We R memory Keepers
  • The 3D star was created from THIS tutorial I have posted. Very easy to do!
  • I used dark brown wire for the firework.
  • Unity star stamps from the current KOTM.
  • The bag is from Whiskar Graphics
  • Everything was cut using my awesome Sizzix eclips with eCal software!
  • And of course all my usual inking, stitching, etc.

Alrighty crafty friends.. off you go! Thanks for stopping by!

Great minds think alike…

Yeah… Sure.. Great minds think alike. But sometimes it’s more like you crawl into their brain, and get all their yummy ideas for your own! LOL!

This happens to me way to often it seems, especially with my SVG Cuts projects. Usually when a project gets done, I’m waiting… Gnawing off my fingertips until it gets posted. Why? Because I worry someone will have the same idea, etc.. And it happens! Especially with my last tackle box gift set I designed. A follower on the SVG Cuts Facebook page posted something very similar DAYS before my project went up. Just my luck, eh?

In this case THANKFULLY it’s not a DT project of mine, it’s just for ‘fun’. I was bored the other night, no DT projects to do right now… so I wanted some crafting time for ‘me’. As you all saw in my craft room peeks that I had some Simple Stories ‘Summer Fresh’ hanging out on my table. I was working on a layout… But then I was really wanting to use this jar cutting file from SVG Cuts! And being that it fit the Summer Fresh theme, I was thinking up a project. It originally started as a box and jar pockets.. I got the idea of using the acetate sheet to make the clear jar from my friend Thienly. She designed some cute ones for Unity and I wanted to give them a try! I did decide to back mine with paper instead of making both sides clear… Here’s my version!

Photobucket

Then I had an ‘ah-ha’ moment and THOUGHT I had a cool and simple idea to share. The Simple Stories Summer Fresh collection has these cool printed overlays… I love them! And after making the jar I thought I would use these and make bags!

Photobucket

I was so excited crafting away the other night making these little bags I couldn’t wait to share!….

……. Then I got on Facebook…

Scroooooolling down and seeing what everyone’s been up to..

Then I stop… And mutter to myself, “No friggin way!!!!”

I see THESE on the simple stories Facebook wall..

The EXACT same thing that I literally just got done making. Craaaazy! Great minds, right?

 

So, here’s my version in my cute little box. After seeing the Simple Stories DT member’s version, I added a few things to mine. I loved how they looked with licorice and I just happen to have some laying around. I also used my twist trimmer on the edges instead of leaving them straight, and then I added a button to the sun, too cute!

And here they are all in their box.

Photobucket

You like it?.. It’s super simple to make this set, it really didn’t take me all that long in terms of ‘off the page’ projects. Here’s some design details if you want to give it a try!

  • I used Simple Stories Summer Fresh kit.
  • The ‘bags’ were made by stitching the overlays over coordinating paper. Leave some edges on each side and trim with decorative scissors. Decorate each bag with Summer Fresh stickers, eyelets, ribbons, etc.
  • For the jar bag, I used THIS freebie file from SVG Cuts. I cut two jars, one on paper and one on acetate, sized to 3.363w and stitched.
  • The box is from The Tea for You and Me SVG kit. VERY easy to put together and very sturdy! Sized to 11.70″w. You will have to ungroup one of the files and cut them separately as they won’t fit on the mat as grouped. I wanted this as large as possible though and at this size, it’s perfect for a few bags!
  • The little mason jar on the front is made just like the bag, but sized to 2.140w. Create a cute pinwheel and stick it in the jar.. Got the idea to do this from one of the stickers.
  • Then just finish embellishing your box and fill your bags with treats! Makes a great gift!

And hey, SVG Cuts memorial day sale is going on and you can get 25% off your purchase! Stop by and stock up!

Easy Peasy Mouse Ears!

Are you a Disney fan?.. Or perhaps you’re going soon?

As many of you know, we just got back from Disneyland! My daughter, Alannah, doesn’t like the ear headbands.. or hats, so I decided to make my own special light weight ‘ear’ clips for her! And what a hit they were! Not only did SHE love them, I was stopped countless times and asked about where she got them, etc. I wish I had a bunch of spare sets on me (ok, that’s dumb.. who would carry around a bunch of random sets of ears? lol).. But yeah, IF I did that, I would have totally hijacked a churro cart and started selling my cheapie foam ears for $50 a set!

OK.. maybe not.. But it was nice that other people liked them.. especially seems how my husband thought they were ‘lame’. Whatever.. I just shooed him away to go ‘bid’ on his ‘cars’ on his LAME xbox game and I carried on making a few more sets to match her outfits.

Photobucket

And here they are in ‘action’

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

They were comfortable and stayed on all day! Even on Splash Mountain… seven times.. yes, seven times. They LOVED it! My pretty curled hair that took me 30 minutes bright and early in the morning.. not so much, lol. I looked like a pile of roadkill by the end of the day! lol.. But hey, we had a blast!

 

A lot of you really seemed to like these little clips, and I pormised a tutorial.. so.. this here would be that tutorial I promised.

Photobucket

SUPPLIES;

  • Sizzix Big Shot
  • Sizzix circle framelits dies (I used #5.. which would be the 3″ die)
  • Glitter black foam
  • Hot glue / glue gun
  • Ribbon
  • Alligator clip (I used a double prong clip so I could ‘weave’ it into her hair for a snug fit)

Photobucket

  • Cut four 3″ circles from the black glitter foam. Using hot glue, adhere non-glitter sides together making two ‘ears’.

 

Photobucket

Photobucket

  • Cut TWO 7″ strips of ribbon and TWO 4″ strips of ribbon. On the 4″ pieces, cut ‘tails’.

 

Photobucket

  • Using the 7″ ribbon, adhere the two ends together, and then adhere to the center as shown above.

 

Photobucket

  • Using a small dab of hot glue, adhere and squish together to make a box as shown above.

And yes.. my cutting mat is dirty.. time to give her a washin’!

 

Photobucket

  • Then, take a small piece of ribbon (A little less than 2″ long) and adhere/wrap around the center of the bow tightly. Fluff it a bit and your bow is done! Adhere your bows to your ears.

 

Photobucket

  • On the bottom/backside of the ear, adhere your clip. You can use a single prong and it will look ‘cleaner’ but I wanted the double prong to weave into her hair a bit, and you couldn’t even see the clip once it was in!

 

That’s it! VERY easy! I whipped up 3 sets in no time! Enjoy!

Cupcake Box – Calorie free!

*** LOOKING FOR THE ECHO PARK HOP? CLICK HERE! ***

This is the best kind of cupcake! Cute and calorie free! (HA! Who am I kidding? Where’s my red velvet cuppy’s at?! Mmmm!)

SVG Cuts released this adorable ‘Happy Birthday to You’ kit and I was drooling over that sweet lil’ cupcake container! I wanted to switch it up a little bit, so I added on a ‘liner’ and made it look more vintagey.. and of course, I stuck a butterfly on it, lol. I noticed I’ve been doing that a lot lately! I do like me some butterflis.. have two butterfly tattoos, actually!

So, here’s my pretty ‘vintage’ take on the cupcake!

Photobucket

Ooooh… Ahhhhhhh!

Too bad it doesn’t come with cream filling.

Photobucket

Photobucket

I plan to make another one, with a more ‘playful’ theme to it, bright and fun! It’s really easy to make, too!

If you want to create the ‘liner’. I just scored two strips of paper every 1/4″ and accordian folded it. Then just hot glue it to the base! Totally cute!

OK, that’s it for today! I am working on an SVG Cuts project this week.. and it’s not coming out how it was planned in my head… egh! I hate when that happens! But, I think I can get it to work! *fingers crossed*

Happy crafting!

Doodlebug Designs – Guest Designer!

Here I am again with another guest designer post for Doodlebug Designs! There is a fun little giveaway as well.. Do stop by THIS doodlebug blog post, or keep reading for more info!

Doodlebug sent me the super cute, bright and fun collection ‘Colorwheel’ along with some yummy Doodle Twine, Mini Jewels, and the swiss dot ‘Create a Card’ set! I opened my box and was blinded by the beautiful bright colors after working with some much Halloween stuff it was a nice change of pace(back when I got these goodies was around Halloween).

You can see all the pretties in this collection RIGHT HERE Darling, right?

The colors in this project just look so pretty on my blog, don’t they? ;)

The cheerful colors and pretty stickers made me feel all girly.. well.. not that I ever feel manly or anything, lol.. but I thought it would be so fun to make a little ‘Birthday Girl’ set! So.. that’s what I did! It was actually really quick and easy with these fun embellishments!

Photobucket

How’s that for some COLOR?!

Here are some detail shots for you, along with a few designer tips.

Photobucket

The hat.. *sigh* hats are totally my thing right now.. I have another one in the works.. and my cover project for Cricut magazing this month is a party hat! This one was made using THIS freebie SVG file from SVGSCUTS.COM..  I did size it down a little.. makes it a little smaller for a kiddo.

Photobucket

Do ya see the SPARKLE?! How can you miss it, right? Great glitter paper! And my new Sizzix Eclips cut it GREAT! I always had problems cutting glitter paper with my old Cricut Expression…

Photobucket

I added some ‘fluttering’ butterflies with matching blue wire. You can adhere the stickers to cardstock and trim them out with a craft knife.. that way a butterfly doesn’t get stuck on something.. like a kiddos hair.. ouch!

Photobucket

Add eyelets with ribbon to tie it onto the childs head.. or you can use elastic thread.. but the satin ribbon looks nicer :) Embellish the hat with stickers, rosette, etc. I used Glue Arts U-Cut it foam to make some things pop! :)

 

Now the fun little card! I love the ‘Create a card’ kit.. totally easy to make a simple and cute card!

Photobucket

Photobucket

 

And here is the cute #2 pin for the birthday girl to wear! Easily created with two strips of paper and a paper rosette! Add the Doodlebug die-cut and embellish! My rosette is about 3.25″ diameter and each tail ‘strip’ is 1.40″ wide.

Nightfall treat bucket

Photobucket
Hey, all! Hope you all had a great weekend! I was pretty busy over here finishing up my Echo Park ‘Times & Seasons’ projects! I drank a whole lotta’ coffee yesterday! lol..

I got some boxes in from Two Peas recently, and of course.. I was so excited about the new pretties that I HAD to make time to make one little thing! This is really simple.. I made it in less than an hour! I ordered some treat buckets from Oriental Trading Co. so I could decorate them for various holidays! I decided to give one a try… here’s what I came up with!

Photobucket

  • Get your buckets HERE.. Comes in a set of six! Perfect size for treats, cookies, stinky socks.. etc.
  • The little canvas star is from Canvas Corp. I added and eyelet and buttons! LOVE them!
  • The GORGEOUS paper is ‘Nightfall’ By American Crafts. It’s on sale at Two Peas right now!

Gettin’ pushy with push cakes!

I am SO excited about this project!

Cute colorful yummy treats AND cute colorful Halloween paper and embellishments? Ahhh.. YES! Me likey a LOT! I think it’s weird to sit here and go on and on about how much I loooove my own project, so… I won’t do that. I mean, if I hated it, I probably wouldn’t be showing you (trust me, I have a few of those around here..)

I really do love it though.. LUV IT! *insert pink fluffy floating hearts here*

So, last night I posted on my FACEBOOK showing you these cute new Bella Blvd. ‘Too Cute to Spook’ papers I got… I also had some weird plastic tubes and a block of styrofoam. Some of you didn’t know what those snazzy little tubes were for.. Well, now ya do! Or.. errr.. maybe ya don’t? lol. TUBE CAKES! HelloOOoooo, handy dandy cutesy awesomeness! They are EASY to make and even easier to eat! Great for holidays, birthdays, to stuff your face when your ‘Aunt’s’ in town and you need chocolate before you rip someones head off… Not saying I get like that or anything.. I’m the girl ’Happy’ life.. (really, it’s just a coverup.. I’m terribly grumpy.. Grrrrr.. Get off my lawn!) Pfffft!

I was going to do a photo tutorial showing how I made the push cakes, but.. it was dark and I didn’t have good lighting. I will just give some tips and explain at the bottom of this post. But before that, you need to see more pictures.. lots, LOTS more.. I couldn’t help it! I want to make sure you see all the cuteness, and if you’re slightly blind, I have to share close ups.. see, I’m just thinkin’ of ya!… and if I make your belly growl or perhaps you start salivating, then extra points for me! Yes, I get points for your drooling.. I know, I know.. I have a messed up ‘points’ system.

Now, scoot your chair closer to the computer screen… and dig in! Or, if you’re on an iPad, laptop, etc. place it on your chest and get to scrollin’!

Photobucket

Oh, yeah! Three of my favorite hobbies combined! Baking, paper crafting, and eating! Oh, eating’s not a hobby?… Especially calorie packed crud in a tube?.. Drats!

I wish you all could have seen my girls’ faces when they came home and saw this little masterpiece!

I bought this pack of sprinkles at Target and they match the paper perfectly!

Photobucket

Photobucket

Soooo… what do ya think? (AKA: leave me a comment! lol)

OK, so as I mentioned earlier, I didn’t do a tutorial for this, but I will give you some details to help you get started! (And yes, I am SO making a Christmas and Thanksgiving one!  I have a CUTE idea for a turkey setting for push cakes! Whoo-hoo!) So, here’s some deets:

 

THE CAKE and FROSTING:

  • I alter my box cakes and they come out tasting homemade! Try these steps.. 1). Use chocolate cake mix with 3-4 full squirts of black Americolor food coloring (this is the BEST food coloring!) 2). Mix in 1-2tsp cocoa powder, use melted REAL butter in place of oil, use MILK in place of water, use eggs as stated on the box and add in 1 small pack of INSTANT chocolate pudding mix. Beat on medium for about 3 minutes. It WILL be thick.. and yuuuuummy! And just so you know, raw cake batter is protein (you know.. eggs and milk!).. it’s almost healthy!.. Yeah… that’s a lie, lol. Bake as directed in a 9×13″ dish.
  • Once the cake is done, let it cool a bit and remove it from the baking dish. Once the cake is completely cooled, use a cake level (or a good ol’ knife) and cut the cake in half. I squish the cake down a bit to make it a bit more dense and easier to cut. It also helps to chill it for about an hour.
  • Use a push cake tube as your ‘cutter’ and cut a bunch of little circles. (You can get tubes from eBay, Etsy, online party supply stores, etc.)
  • For the frosting. I use homemade buttercream and colored it to match the paper with Americolor food coloring. You can also buy canned vanilla and color it!
  • Start stacking! Push down a layer of cake.. then use a piping bag with tip and squeeze in some frosting. Push in another cake layer so it smushes the frosting to the edges… repeat and top with a bit of frosting and sprinkles!
  • Try not to lick your fingers.. lol. YUM!

THE BOX DISPLAY:

  • I used a 4×4″ block of styrofoam, cut in half and glued together. Finished size will be 8x4x2
  • Trim paper to fit for outter part. Decorate and such.. do your thing! As you can see, I used a bunch of stickers from Bella Blvd ‘Too Cute to Spook’ and Bo Bunny ‘Whoo-ligans’. They match well!
  • I used 20g black jewelry wire to make some of the stickers ‘springy’ and stand out.
  • Use 3 dowel rods to hold up the ‘treats’ banner. (break one rod in half and hot glue it to one full sized rod) I made these even more sturdy by gluing on chip board elements. Stick this about an inch into the styrofoam. It helps to hot glue them in!
  • Also, make holes for the cake pops with one of the push cake handles that you didn’t fill with cake. I made the mistake of trying to shove an already made push cake into the strofam and ended up pushing the cake up.. yeah I know, imagine THAT.. I pushed the handle up and the push cake pushed up.. lol! So, I had to whip up another one.. *grumble, grumble*

That’s about it! SUPER easy to do and so much fun to decorate! You can go ALL out.. or keep it simple! The good thing is I can use this more than once as I made it so the push cake sleeves slip right off!

Well, folks.. this is one long blog post now. Thanks so much for stopping by! I will be quiet over here for a few days as I finish up these projects for Echo Park.. try not to miss me too much! *wink*.. Wait.. is it kinda creepy to wink at you?… Does it weird you out?.. It does?.. Oh.. :( Well, I won’t tell you I was making a kissy face at the same time, because that would be REALLY, really weird.

See ya!

I *heart* Lori Whitlock

Lookie here! It’s NOT a Halloween project share! LOL! *gasp*

So, if you checked out my post sharing my Season’s Greetings project, you might have noticed I mentioned the line being design by Lori Whitlock! (And if you haven’t you’re missing an Echo Park Paper kit giveaway!!) Well, not only is she a fantabulous graphic designer, she also designs and sells cuttable files! *insert crowd cheering, fireworks, and a big ol’ slice of chocolate cake with EXTRA frosting and pink sprinkles here* Awesome, right! And even better? They are SUPER resonably priced! You can view her shop from her blog HERE which has a only few files or, if you are a Silhouette user, search for Lori Whitlock! She has TONS of cute little designs to choose from in the Silhouette store! As in.. 37 pages of cute cut files! Whoo hoo! And don’t forget, Silhouette has a $.75 shape sale going on RIGHT NOW!

Alrighty, crafty peeps.. on to the cuteness! I went for simple and do-able! These would be great for the table setting on Thanksgiving! Switch it up for Halloween if you want! (And if you like Halloween, I’ve got another project I am going to design with her files that I will share soon enough.. probably next week!)

Super cute, right?!

If you want to make some, here’s how:

  • You will need the following files from Lori Whitlock.. Everything shown here can be purchased through her blog - Five Borders . Fall Leaves 1 . Fall Leaves 2 . Pumpkin Box . 6 labels
  • Cut various sizes and colors of leaves. Ink edges if you’d like. These would look great embossed! I scored some of them down the center and gave the a little crease.
  • Cut your pumpkin boxes as sized.. you can also make this much larer (think a batch of pumpkin cookies for a cookie exchange!)
  • Add the tag to the front (I layered two sizes for a shadowed effect) You can still remove and add the lid as long as you do NOT add glue above the eyelets!
  • Stamp on your tag.. or write a name/note
  • Add a wavy trim around the lid. I chose a turquoise blue for a fun pop of color!
  • The cardboard hearts are from Jillibean soup! Love them! I just got them in the other day :)
  • Add button/twine/ribbon/brads, etc.
  • Fill with yummy treats! Even 2-3 cookies would work!

I hope you all like this project and it gets you in the mood for fall crafting! If you’re on Facebook, stop by Lori’s page and click ‘LIKE’ to keep updated on new items, freebie downloads, etc.
