Twas the night before Christmas, I’m glued to the tree. I’m wondering what Santa brought just for me. Could it be cardstock or inkpads or lace? Or some stamps, I said, with a smile on my face. And that’s when I heard him…… “Hi Santa, ” I said He … Read more Ready for a Giggle?
The other day I came across a cute template for a snowglobe card I had previously printed out (sorry I can’t recall who or where I found it at since it’s been at least a few months). It was so easy to create and makes for a really cute and unique card! I used CTMH’s December Word … Read more A Non-Traditional Snowglobe
Truly there was a LOT of glitter all over my work area when I completed this card! Here’s my take on Tresa’s Glitter ‘n Tape Technique…. I used her technique for the red glitter border as well as for the circle focal point. And if that wasn’t enough glitter, I decided to do Liquid Glass … Read more Glitter, Glitter, Everywhere!
Looking for an irresistibly cute concoction for your Thanksgiving Day Celebration?? This may be just what you’re looking for!

So apparently this is an original creative … Read more Gobble, Gobble Time!
A quick project (altered composition notebook) I made up this weekend for a friend. She’s been thinking a lot about changing her career path. I told her she needs to start keeping her thoughts, ideas and any pertinent info in a notebook to help her dream become a reality. There’s something about writing things down … Read more Dreams Can Come True

If you haven’t seen Martha Stewart’s Glow-in-the-Dark Glitter–it’s so COOL! I picked up some a few weeks back with the idea of having my kids help me decorate those craft pumpkins rather than carving a pumpkin–thought it would be less messy (yeah, right…two 3-year-olds and glitter! I’m totally off my rocker!) But that does lead … Read more Glitter Pumpkins
I’m an addict. That’s right, I admit it. I absolutely love, love, LOVE punches! And even though I completely realize that they are heavy, bulky and not easy to store, I still find that I need more (that’s right, I said need! LOL). So in honor of my sad addiction, I thought I’d share a … Read more Punch Animals

Why not combine the two for a “wowie” effect… Using a Coluzzle mat, piercing mat, mouse pad or something similar, insert your desired brads into the surface so they stand up fully supported. Then using Liquid Glass (or similar) apply a small dab on the head of … Read more Glitter Brads
This is a card I made awhile ago, but one I thought was worth sharing. It’s a fun way to utilize the dry embossing technique with sanding to create a realistic looking cupcake liner!
