A chick and a winner!

That blog title Sounds like a weird children’s book.. lol

So, I have a quick blog post today to announce the winner of the Echo Park kit from the blog hop! As always, we had a great turn-out and we are so glad you all joined us this month! I also have a cute ‘one piece’ chick box to share!

First up.. the box. Because it’s so darn cute! This little guy was created with SVG Cuts’ new kit of the week, ‘Egg Hunt’. This is this weeks FREE GIFT with your purchase of $9.98 or more. Use offer code FREEGIFT at checkout. GET IT HERE! Includes a lifetime warranty of happiness and the satisfaction of knowing you can always win over your friends and family with your amazing craft skills thanks to SVG Cuts… and the dirty looks from the other ‘room moms’ because you’re more awesome than they are is an added bonus!


Now that I’ve thrown my sales pitch at you.. here’s the little chick. His name is Gus.

Gus does’t normally have a bow on him… or feet (which I added from THIS kit) He’s cute without the bow.. BUT.. put one on him and shy little Gus quickly turns into overly confident ‘Gustavo’..

Jeez.. please excuse Gustavo.

Ya put a bow-tie on a chick and he gets all impudent ‘n stuff.

This little guy..

“What’s that, Gus?.. er.. ‘Gustavo’ ”…

“You’re not a little guy?…

“You’ll peck my eyes out!?”


Um.. Sooo.. this big ‘ol tough guy with feathers of steel was created with Doodlebug Designs goodies! I used the orange and yellow ‘petite prints’ basics. The black mini brads were perfect sized ‘eyes’. The bow-tie is a FREE FILE and cut with a blue polka dot pattern from ‘Hello Spring’. Even the twine for his little fluff is from Doodlebug!

“Hush, Gustavo!.. Be glad I didn’t give you a comb-over!….. perhaps a mullet?..”

In case you didn’t hear Gustavo, he was asking why I didn’t give him a Justin Beiber hairstyle. ‘Gustavo Fever’ just doesn’t have the same ring to it.


OK.. enough with that chicken nugget!!

“You heard what I said, GUS!… that’s right, NUGGET” 


Time for my Echo Park blog hop WINNER!

Showing off some gorgeous LYB ‘Just Because’ collection!



Hey there! I’m back with Little Yellow Bicycle as a ‘Just Because’ cycling team member! You can check out the blog post HERE. Scroll through the LYB blog and see all the fabulous designs by the DT and cycling team! So much inspiration.

This collection is quite lovely! It has a unique color palette.. A bit different from the ‘norm’. A coral-ish red, navy blue, small touches of lavender… really nice!



The moment I saw it all in person I knew I wanted to make something with a coffee or tea theme. I am ALWAYS inspired by the theme of papers/stickers. So, I made a tea cup! Almost looks real with the added saucer!

I added a dowel with some pretty rosettes, chipboard, 3D bow and stick pins. Fun, huh? You can make one too with the SVG Cuts Tea For You and Me kit. Add some bags of tea, cookies, etc. for a perfect gift!


Next up is a cute and simple vellum strip card. I LOVE LYB’s vellum strips!

I love how much there is to play with in the Just Because collection! You really can take it so many different ways from girlie and cute, vintage, Valentine-ish, etc.

Whatcha’ think? You can view the entire collection HERE. 


Before you leave, I want to mention that LYB is having a NATURALS contest! Remember the adorable altered pitcher I shared recently showing off the Naturals? Hopefully that sent you all running to your nearest craft store to get some for yourself! If so, take a look at the contest! It runs through March 17th so you have plenty of time to enter! MORE DETAILS HERE.


OK, friends.. see you later!! Happy crafting!

Hello, spring! – LYB cycling team!

Heeeeey! Yes, I said, ‘Hello Spring’.. lol.. it’s pretty much summer in many places across the US, but hey, don’t let the name of this collection fool ya.. there’s plenty that is not so ‘springy’ that can be used for summer!

I was contacted by Little Yellow Bicycle asking if I wanted to join them on the cycling team for Hello Spring! Of course I said yes! (And hey, you might see me in another upcoming cycling team.. who knows!) It was a lot of fun working with them and I am honored to have been asked! You can see the entire Hello Spring collection HERE. I love how LYB has TONS of embellishments! So fun!

I made two projects. One altered crate, and a simple card. You can get more details on these projects over at the LYB Blog. Plus you can see what everyone else made! All the biker chicks and cycling team ladies are super talented!


The little crate I found at Michaels craft store! I picked up a few to alter.. cute, right? I love little crates! I figured this would be great to hold some goodies!



Cute, cute!


Now to the card. I looove the premade felt flowers. LOVE ‘EM!



What do you think?.. You can head over to the LYB blog post and leave a comment (or here if you’d like.. lol)… or.. BOTH PLACES! Ha! :) Also, if you haven’t already, ‘like’ LYB on FACEBOOK!

Thanks so much for stopping by! See ya tomorrow with more projects! I have been a busy girl! I love having extra crafty time!

Thanks a bunch!

May is here and flowers are in full bloom! This week at Fantabulous Cricut the challenge is Flower Shower! Stop on by the blog for some design team inspiration and to enter the challenge for this weeks giveaway!

I decided to try one of the popular flower pot cards. I like it, but wish I would have done a few things different.. like make the scalloped trim come down a bit more and maybe add some grass, lady, bee, etc.

The stamp sentiment is from My Craft Spot! Works perfect for this!




If you’d like to make one, I used SCAL basic shapes and the Forever Young Cricut cartridge!


In SCAL select the trapezoid shape. Uncheck ‘keep proportions’ and size to 5.00w x 4.276h. Cut two.

The scalloped trim is something I made awhile back by welding circles to a rectangle. The circles were sized to .60w and just weld to any size rectangle that will work!

The rectangle for the insert was cut to 3.00 x 4.00 and attached to a half circle sized 4.00w. This is what the back looks like after adhering them -


The flowers were all random cuts from Forever Young and several layers cut between 3.00″ and 1.00″. You just fold up the edges a bit and layer how you’d like! Very easy! I actually made this card pretty quickly!

You can’t really tell, but I also have some pop dots under the scalloped trim -


Next time, I will cut it a little longer so it shows better!

I think I will give this style card another go and try for more details, it was really fun to make!

I hope you like it!

Springy Treats

I made these for my daughter’s class party, as well as FCCB’s Design Team project for Challenge Me Monday! This week is to create something using a chick or a bunny!

I used the adorable animal files from SVG Cuts Cuddly Animals Collection! I love them! I had to make 26 of these so I did edit the bunny’s feet and also stamped the faces on instead! I wanted to add a ribbon with a stamped sentiment, but I ran out of time.




Cute, right? I got my little baggies on eBay by searching ‘M&M candy bags’. It was 100 for like, $6.00! You can fit jelly beans inside them too! Mmm!

The animals are cut to 2.5″ high. I just glued them on with a low temp hot glue gun! Voila’.. Simple treats for the class party!

Add some hot glue and twist a bit. Let it cool and it’s done!

So, while I was busy making my design team project for Fantabulous Cricut I got sidetracked when I remembered a kit I saw LAST year. It was a kit with little cups and precut ears, nose, etc. to glue on and make a bunny container. I started to brainstorm and decided to whip one up real quick. This took me no time at all to put together once I cut my pieces. So fun and simple.. I can totally see making a pleathora of these just because I can whip them out so fast! You know the saying ‘Multiply like rabbits..” LOL!

Here is today’s paper cuteness!





Best of all.. I used Sure Cuts a Lot basic shapes.. that’s it!

Here’s how:


You will need Sure Cuts a Lot.. not sure if Make The Cut has a basic shapes library? If you use Cricut design studio, I am sure you can figure this out with some cartridge shaes! Heck, you could even cut shapes out by hand, folks! *high five* You will also need a container of some sort. I used a breadcrumb container so the cut sizes I give you are going by that.

First, cut your container down to about 3″ tall.


Hmm, I have a sudden craving for chicken parmesean!

Anyhow.. cut a piece of paper 3.5″ high and 11″ wide. Wrap it around the container gluing as you go. I used hot glue… and I burnt myself.. and my glue gun got stuck to my comfy velour pants. Yes, I am totally messy and spazzy (is that a word? LOL!) when I craft…

…… and yes, I wear velour pants. They’re comfy, Mmm-kay?!

Moving on…

Did you cut your paper yet?.. Get on it!


Ink up the edges if you want.. I think it really helps the project stand out a bit more. Plain ol’ white was a little boring.

Cut and assemble -


Ears: Oval shape, uncheck ‘keep proportions’ size 2 ovals at 4.00h and 1.50w. The inside of the ears are 2.730h and 1.00w.

Nose: Rounded heart shape, uncheck ‘keep proportions’ size at 1.715w and 1.097h.

Bow: Rounded square shape, uncheck ‘keep proportions’ size at 4.00w and 1.50h. Kinda crinkle it in the middle a bit. Cut a piece of paper at half an inch wide and 1.5″ long. This will wrap around the crinkled part of the bow.

Eyes: Two ovals, uncheck ‘keep proportions’ size one at .3355 and .500h. Size the other at .291w and .433h. I used my white ink pen to add a catchlight in the eye. Glossy accents over the eyes will look great!

For the whiskars I just cut thin strips with my scissors… crinkle them up and glue them on!

To create pink cheeks, use your ink pad or dab some ink on a Q-tip and rub it on. You can also use paper chalk.

I am thinking of having my girls make one for each of their teachers and I will fill them with some yummy cookies! It’s the perfect size to stack cookies in.

As always, I hope you enjoyed this little tutorial! If so, please click the ‘LIKE’ button for Facebook!

Annnnd.. I really need to do a post with some questions answered and other random things I’ve been meaning to post. Maybe today? I promise I’m not ignoring all your emails and comment questions.. OK.. maybe YOUR’S! lol j/k. I’m really not that mean… really. OK.. I have nothing to do tonight.. soooo.. I will be back with a long rambling post for you all that have been waiting to hear back from me.

And can I just whine a minute?.. Of course I can.. it’s my blog.. neener-neener!

It’s snowing.. again! I kid you not, we’ve gotten more snow since ‘spring’ started than we have all winter! Ok.. maybe not.. but it’s really close to it! I am beyond ready for warmer weather… only because I have some darling dresses and sandals I am dying to put on my girls! LOL! Go away snow!!


Bunny Cuteness!

I just LOVE the cute Spring Bunnies SVG Collection over at! I knew the moment it came out I had to create something with them! I made a few things.. Some cute egg wrappers, gift boxes (bunny and a carrot) and also a cute little bunny basket! I really had fun with this collection! You can see some more pictures and all the details RIGHT HERE

Here are a few more pictures!








I hope you all like it!

I have a few projects to work on this weekend.. one being a Design Team project for Right At Home Scrapbooking! I’m not 100% set on what I will be making for them yet, but it will be cute.. of course! :)

Alrighty crafty friends! Talk to you soon! I would love it you would ‘like’ this post to share it on Facebook!

Simply Sweet Lollipop Bouquet

I just wanted to share my newest creation for Right At Home Scrapbooking! You can find all the carts I used and cut sizes IN THIS POST It’s super simple and would be a great gift for someone special!

Here are some pics! I recently bought the 3 Birds On Parade cartridge. Not sure why I waited so long to get it, it’s adorable! if you love cutesy birds, check it out!







It would be really cute to write or stamp something inside the lollipop cover! I got the idea to do this from a design team friend of mine, Amy.. she made THESE for Valentine’s day! Aren’t those so cute?!

Anyhow, I hope you like the little lollipop bouquet! Enjoy!


Springtime buddies.

Yes, I know I literally posted a few hours ago saying how busy I was.. but, when I get an idea in my head I have to try it right away! So.. lucky you, here is another tutorial.

I got my inspiration for these from some SVG files I saw. I decided to whip up my own little bag and use my cute critters from the always awesome Create A Critter cartridge and this was the result –






Don’t they make you smile? I mean.. who doesn’t love decapitated critters? Ha!

Wanna make some? Do you have it in you to chop these poor critters heads off all just to make a cute bag?..

Well, if ya do.. then let’s cook up some springtime buddies!


Here’s whatcha need:

Create a Critter cartridge and this file created by moi! Download 1springtime_buddies_bag_HappyLifeCraftyWife This is an SVG file. Open it and just cut away! to make this to my sizing set this to cut at 5.820 HIGH. Make sure ‘Keep Proportions’ is checked.

*** If you use my SCAL file and share anything you made with my file PLEASE link back to my blog. Do not post the file on your website/blog.. simply link back to this post. Thank ya! ***

You will need to score it as shown:



If you don’t have a paper scorer you can just fold it.. but, these are only like $8.00 – $10.00 and make life grand! No more uneven fold lines!

Glue it shut and set aside. Time to make some critters!

Make your frog 4″ high and your chick 4 1/2″ high. The grass is 2″ high. (There are several animals you can use for this!)

Glue ‘em all together and then cut their heads off!


The chicks eyes look weird because I added Glossy Accents and it wasn’t dry yet. Ah.. who am I kidding? The poor chick is crying! I mean, wouldn’t you if your head was just chopped off?

OK, enough talking about decapitated animals.. before you all think I have issues.

What? No I didn’t just twitch.. gah! *twitch*

OK.. moving on…

Glue the body on the bag like so:


Add a little sticky foam square to keep it shut. Glue the head onto the top flap.


That’s it, folks!

Have fun with it! Wouldn’t these be adorable for the kiddos on Easter?
