Tic Tac Toe Travel Bag

This little travel bag has 6 X's and O's in it and makes a great game for kids and/or teenagers to play while traveling.  The muslin bags are from Stampin' Up and the vinyl on the blocks is from Expressions Vinyl and the Heat Transfer Vinyl on the bags is from Silhouette.  The little block came from Hobby Lobby about 1/2" in size.  the bag was marked 0.5625 in. As you can see I did the words TIC TAC TOE differently on each bag.  These are going to a church bazaar in November and I didn't want them to think they were buying them all alike.  Loved making this project.  I made 9 at one sitting.  The pattern for the bags and blocks came from a lady on my Silhouette Cameo group.  She was so nice to share.  Have fun making yours!

This stamp set is called A World of Thanks!  I bought it quite awhile back and just got time to use it. Very versatile. I think it makes a cute card.

Merry Christmas Card Envelope lined

This card is from a card swap I was in and is just adorable.  No details on it.  I know Seasons of Style Designer Series Paper was used along with the stamp set from last years Holiday mini.  Very Vanilla card stock along with Crumb Cake card stock was used.  Click on it to enlarge to see it better. Cherry Cobbler ink was used for sentiment and Cherry Cobbler was used for the heart. Please notice the envelop it is lined with the same paper.  So cute!!!

MIA but I'm Back

I have been gone for a couple of weeks due to surgery on my knee.  Life is back to normal and I have been able to get in my craft room.  I wanted to do this cute project I saw on Pinterest while I was recuperating.  My granddaughter loaned me her IPad, so I would have some entertainment during my down time.  I made a box to hold some of the Christmas cards I wanted to get started on.  The cards are A2 and I just layered some Christmas DSP from Stampin' Up and cut a strip of Real Red to go across the top of the DSP and then I used the 2 3/8" scallop punch on Real Red cardstock and a 2" Whisper White circle punch.  I stamped off the tree in Old Olive and stamped it on the circle and then stamped the sentiment in Real Red over the tree.  I used Festival of Tree stamp set on the cards.  The box is made from a video I saw on Pinterest.  This lady has a wonderful site and I hope you will visit it and make the box to hold your cards, tags, etc. Whatever you need a box for.  Decorate it anyway you want. Please visit here to see the video and I hope you have fun making this fun project.  You could also make the boxes and label them with different cards in it for future use.  Just have fun.  She is a very thorough arts/craft person.  Check out her complete blog.
