Hello nature. A layout with Dear Lizzy 5th & Frolic

Hello, friends! I am trying to catch up on my blogging and crafting over here.. and.. umm.. I haven’t done a Wednesday video in what.. a month? oy. I won’t have one today, either. I have just been so busy over here. Then when I finally get some ‘me’ time, I don’t want to sit around in my craft room recording… I have a new obsession now.. nails.. nail polish.. spending more money on stuff I ‘need’ for my nails. So I have been spending my free time playing with my new Gelish polishes. Maybe I will do a blog post on this! I stopped biting my nails after yeeeeeeears of doing it. I feel all.. normal now. My hubby was always grossed out by me eating my ‘hand sandwich’ as he liked to call my nail biting problem. He’d always say, ‘Who does THAT!’.. Umm.. nervous freaks like me do it. Anytime I get to ‘thinking’ I nibble those things like a vanilla cookie dipped in Nutella.

Anyhow… nails over videos lately, sorry peeps.

So, since I didn’t do a video this week, I at least made something to share! I ordered a bunch of Dear, Lizzy 5th & Frolic on sale at Two Peas. Um, yeah.. not sure what is going on in my head because I should have had this right when it came out.. it’s gorgeous! I saw it in person at CHA, but your mind gets so packed with all the new and exciting things you see there that it’s easy to forget it all, lol. Really.. I walk out of CHA and think ‘What was that again?‘… lol. So when it got delivered and I opened my box, it was like something brand new and exciting.. and on sale *high five*.

I found some cute photos of my younger daughter that worked well with the colors of the paper. I like to match my kids clothes to the papers.. yes.. it’s weird. I actually made this dress and we were out trying to snap photos of it so I could load it into my Etsy shop. She found this ‘pokey thing’ and was wanting to bring them all home. The second photo she looks like she’s almost scared of it.. well, there was a bug on it, ooops! lol. I told her ‘and this is why we are not bringing them home!’ she agreed. (And dang it.. I should have journaled this little story.. maybe I will add it in or write it on the back) Anyhow, in her ‘scared’ picture I loved the way she is holding it out and looking at it all displeased-like, so I used it!

I just love the soft colors here. I kinda felt ‘meh’ about it yesterday when I finished it, but today I like it…. knowing me I will be ‘meh’ about it tomorrow.. Ah, the ever changing mind of a woman.

I am always so scared to sew through chipboard.. like it’s gonna snap my needle and it will fling into my eye or something. When in reality.. chipboard is pretty easy to sew through.. just gotta take it a little slow.

Looking at my daughter in the dress I made totally makes me want to sew again… Hmmm.. Maybe I will find the time to sew soon. I think I said this recently, too.. lol. It’s been so long, I don’t even know if I remember how to sew. Maybe it’s like ‘riding a bike’ and you don’t forget.. but I am sure I am a bit rusty.

OK, that’s it for today! I am so happy I finally got into this whole layout thing. I am slowly putting albums together and it makes me all warm and fuzzy.  I have tons of gorgeous photos of my kiddos to scrapbook and I have been printing them just waiting for the right papers to come along.

 

Before ya go, I gotta know.. Do you try to match what people are wearing to papers you use? I can’t be the only crazy one out there. I see the crazy in your eye.. it’s OK.. tell me you coordinate papers with your photos, too!

See ya!

Easy little Halloween card!

I’ve been searching for some awesome Halloween paper and came across My Mind’s Eye’s new Mischievous line! Holy cuteness! I will need a few of these kits, for sure. I’ve been stocking up on Apothecary from Echo Park and I needed some new stuff so everything won’t look the same, lol.

I posted the other day on Facebook about my $1.00 bin finds at Michaels Craft Store.. some awesome Halloween stamps! There are more, and I plan to go pick them up soon! How cute are these?

Photobucket

And for only a buck, they stamp great! Although… I am not sure what ‘great’ really is seems I don’t really use stamps. I chalk that up to the fact that I don’t really OWN many stamps, lol. I have a folder of some I designed though.. Thinking of making them availiable for digital format.. Anyhow.. My new paper came today so I had to play! I gotta say, I LOVE the touch of light blue in this line! So different for Halloween!

Here’s my simple little card using my cheapie stamps…

Photobucket

I stamped onto light grey cardstock and then cut them out… inked the edges a bit. I like how it came out!

Photobucket

I also love the pleated trim! Do you?… Here’s how to make a paper pleated trim:

  • Cut 1 or 2 strips at 12″w and 1.5″h. (for my card at 7″w I cut two strips, one at 12″w and one at 8″w to create one long strip)
  • Drag out your score board and score at 1″, 1.5″, 2.5″3″ and so on… you will want spacing like so… 1″,1/2″, 1″, 1/2″.. like so:

Photobucket

  • Run a line of adhesive tape down the center. (Sorry for the cruddy pic)

Photobucket

  • Then, pleat fold at the 1/2″ marks like so.. Adhere two strips together if needed.. You can make these any size you’d like! Enjoy!

Photobucket

Easy, right?! Adds a nice touch to a card, bag, etc.

Photobucket

I hope you all like my little card! Thanks for stopping by!


“Tamara, seriously.. Create a Critter AGAIN?!”

Yup.. again.

I big pink fluffy heart LOVE them dern critters!

I had some styrofoam balls laying around and decided to do something with them. I decided to make a cute little tree for no reason at all, just for fun!

Photobucket

After I made it, I thought.. wow, that looks weird, LOL! It needs a branch or something…. and it’s pretty heavy for a ‘paper’ project because of the styrofoam and hot glue all over it. My son thinks it’s a bat! he whacked himself in the head with it! LOL!

Photobucket

The tree needed something… anything, really. It was kinda lame by itself.. I mean, it would look CUTE in my daughter’s owl themed room! Too bad the color’s don’t match. I decided to pull out the good ol’ Create a Citter and make some animals treat bags like my Springtime Buddies that I made awhile ago. I do love those little bags! I decided to go with a fall theme (Hello…..! Can we get through spring and summer first!?) I know, fall, really?… But look how cute!

Photobucket

The little fox makes me smile.. so cute!

This would be great for birthday party favors! Well, if a tree and animals fit your theme! Jungle theme? Fun stuff!

And now for more pictures.. what? Did you think you could get away with only a few photos from me? Ha! You sooo cra-zay!

Photobucket

You might have noticed that not all my critters are ‘decapitated’.. sometimes it just won’t work out for that particular die cut, so you can just adhere the bottom half of your critter to the bag.. OR, you can glue it to the back of the bag instead. For this project, only my raccoon worked.

Umm….. Yes, I have issues.. and my son asked me for a dinosaur! So.. Mr. Dino joined the Fall Friends party!

Photobucket

“Awwww.. that’s cute”…

Sure it is…. Photobucket

I know.. I know.. I couldn’t help it. That’s my dark side coming out… and it made my kids laugh!

Create a Critter, Straight From The Nest, and Forever Young cartridges 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 9.630 WIDE. Make sure ‘Keep Proportions’ is checked. (If you have problems downloading it, email me with my contact link over there to the right… and I will send you the file!) Typepad download is wonky sometimes!

*** 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! ***

For the tree.. get a 3″ strofoam ball and a hot glue gun! The leaves are all cut from SFTN from ‘branch 1′ cut at 2 3/4″. Cut a bunch.. I think I cut them 35 times? Glue them all over your ball, and burn your fingers while doing it.. I did it several times!

After that cut flowers from the shadow of ‘flower 5′ on FY. I cut 3 for each flower sized at 1 1/4″, 1″ and 3/4″. Layer them and fold the petals up. I made 6 of them for my tree.

The base of the tree is a rectangle rolled up and glued to the bottom. I did this before I added the leaves.

Photobucket

That’s it for the tree! Please see THIS POST on how to make the bags with animals!

Here are the sizes for the animals I used:

Fox – 3 1/2″

Owl – 3 1/2″

Squirrel – 3 3/4″

‘coon – 4″

Dinosaur – 10″

What? You don’t want to add the dinosaur? Psssh! You’re no fun! *wink*

Happy crafting!! You all might be seeing some changes to the blog soon.. I’m ready for some fun summer colors! Yay!

Toodles!


Turkey day is on the way!

This little goodie box would be great to add to your table for each guest (Unless, you go somewhere like my grandmother’s and can get about 45-50 relatives at a table that your uncles built.. well, then.. that might be a bit much!)

Photobucket

I created this little box to add to the design challenge on the Fantabulous (hey, someone uses that word besides me!) Cricut Blog .

I used the Cindy Loo Cartridge for the box. I made a lining for the box and just cut the tabs off for the lining and glued both pieces together. It was kind of hard to fold it being so thick so I used my Cricut cutter to score it. Easy peasy! The turkey, leaves, “gobble” and pumpkin are all from the Create a Critter cartridge! (super cute and a must have!).

Photobucket

I folded up the edges of the leaves and used a foam double sided sticky for a 3-d look. I need to get some glue dots! I had some and then lost them.. so sad.

And can I just say I love, loooove my Cuttlebug!? I’ve said it before, but texture adds so much to a project!

Photobucket

I hope you like my little turkey box! It was fun to make :)

Photobucket

See ya!! I will be busy baking and decorating a cake tomorrow for my step sister’s wedding this weekend! I probably won’t post another project until Monday.. but, I could very well be lying about that since I am always trying to squeeze in another project at night, lol.. and of course I gotta share it ;) Actually.. there is not much of anything on TV tonight.. (well there is, but the DVR records them so I can watch them with the hubs) so maybe I will whip something up!

Ta-ta!
