Some M&M Christmas Treats

I made these cute M&M sticks for my daughter's 4th grade classmates. I used the stamp from Jaded Blossom along with the treat bags.

Some of my Christmas Cards


Here are some of the Christmas Cards I made for family and friends!!

Hope you like them :)

Snowman gift box

I hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas!!! It went by way to fast :( A reason why I haven't posted in a couple of weeks, I was busy making things and spending time with my kids and hubby!!!

So here is the Snowman gift box I made using the cupcake from the Sweet Tooth Boxes Cricut cartridge.

I cut the bottom part of the cupcake box out at 11" cut twice to make two. After I put this together I realized I should have used the top and bottom of the cupcake not just the top :( 
The eyes are cut from the George cart at 2" and the buttons at 1/2"
The nose is a triangle cut at 2" and folded into the shape of a nose
The hat is two circles, one cut at 5" and the small one cut at 2.5" and a rectangle cut at 3x6" and scored on the long sides at 1/2" on one side and 1/4" on the other long side. When done scoring cut triangles up to the score line, this is where you will glue the two circles together for the hat.
Flowers are cut at 2" and 1.5"
Thanks for looking and if you make one I would LOVE to see it!!!

and MS green for the boy

Thanksgiving Utensil Holder

Happy Thanksgiving Week!!

I recently saw on someone's blog a cute utensil holder and thought how could I create one myself. Then I remembered the Easter 2010 cart has a pillow box on it. So I welded the pillow box and a triangle for the top part of the utensil holder where the utensil's will lay on.

Here are a couple of pictures with the size of the holder.

The size is 7 x 8.25
I cut the orange background from Lacy Labels at 2.944
I cut the cute paper at 2"
and the stamp is an oval and the brown is a scalloped edge punch
The pumpkins are from Carving Pumpkin cut at  1 1/2 and I cut 3 different pumpkins
I inked the edges of holder, the pumpkins and the oval tag

Thanks for looking!!

Glass Etched Block

Here is my first two glass etching block that I've made using the Jolly cart and Winter Woodland Carts. It was pretty easy to do and quick. Just be sure to leave the etching cream on longer than 30 min. The first picture was my first and I didn't leave the cream on long enough. The second glass block I left the cream on for about 30 min. it could've stayed on another 10 min.. I think they turned out pretty cute!!

Birdhouse Ornament

 Hello~ I've been busy working on making 15 of these adorable little birdhouse ornaments for a little gift to pass out at my 1st ever Cookie Exchange Party.

I love how they turned out. I still want to add white glitter to the base for a snow effect.

There's a little door in the back to put an electric tealight inside, which I had to hand cut.. I still haven't learned how to make my own files so this is an SVG file I bought from SVG Cuts awhile back.

 The birdhouse is an SVG file from SVG Cuts
   The bird and branch are cut out from Winter Woodland
   Bird is cut out at 2.5" and the branch at 3", I trimmed off the trunk.
   The base is a 3.5" square from George Cartridge
 I added bakers twine and 2 brads in the roof so it could be hung from the tree
I added white effects using a white gel pen on the bird and berries.

Birthday Box

I made this cute little box using the Sweet Tooth Cartridge. I think it's one of my FAV's :) If you don't have it, you should buy it, especially with the Holiday's coming up.

I found the cute paper at Michaels. It's for a little girls 1st bday.

I cut the box and lid out at 11"

Hope you like it.

Halloween Treats

I saw these cute little "Boo" treats on a blog and thought they would be cute to have my dd pass them out to her classmates. She is in 4th grade so I have to keep it "cool" also.

I used the Sweethearts cartridge for the Top Note shape. I think I cut it out at 2"
Stapled it to the bag and punch out a scallop and circle shape and used PBD stamp for the sentiment.
I used DCWV paper

Hope you like it
