Lacy Labels Heart shaped box and cholate candy magnets

This weeks project on splitcoaststampers was a heart shaped box.  They used some spellbinders, which I don't have, but any heart shape from any cart will do.  I used the heart on Lacy Labels.  For the base I used the heart at 4 inch (shadow), for the lid I used the heart at 4, both shadow and reg for layering.    For the "box" I used the heart (reg) at 3 inch on the base, 3 inch (shadow) for the lid.  I wanted the flourish on top to sit inside a bit so I cut it at 3.25 inch and the rose is from my rolling rose post.  I skipped the hinged part of the splitcoast tutorial and did a modified version so that both top and bottom of mine have the heart box (if you do it that way, be sure to use the shadow on the upper part so it fits over the bottom part).  If  you need further explanation, let me know.   For the inside....this is my favorite part....I made little chocolates out of fimo clay. I pitted the bottom to hold a magnet (do that before you bake them..push the magnet into the clay, take out the magnet, bake, then glue the magnet in the hole) and then put them in some Wilton candy wrappers-so these are fridge magnets but they look good enough to eat!  Thanks for looking.

Scraplift Sunday : Snow Day 2012

There is just something about Sundays that makes me want to scrap.  This week I went to look at the latest sketch on one of my favorite scraplift sites and sadly learned that they will no longer be posting :( 


Sounds like a good reason to get into my immense stash of scrapbook magazine clippings and start using them.  So, here is one that has been floating around my desk for over a year (that it never got tossed with the scraps is a miracle), it is from a Stampin Up magazine from a couple years ago.  My take on it is above.  The Brrr and hat are from Winter woodland, the mittens and background paper are Echo Park, the felt snowflake border is I think Queen and Co -I also used it on my new blog header :)

If you would like to scraplift this page along with me, please link up below so everyone can see you version! Thanks for looking!

Valentines Day Elephant svg

Random freebie today, someone was looking for an elephant and I happened to have one I made but never got around to using it (ususally I only share the files after I make something with them).  I think I made it to do Valentines day cards LAST year which never got done.   So here it is anyway.....

Snowman shaped card and svg

This is a "thanks snow much" card for a friend.  The front is shaped, I put the back through a cuttlebug, used 3D paint for eyes and mouth, and used pearls for the buttons.  The inside stamp is Stampin Up.  The file is available below for a limited time.  Thanks for looking!

Welcome Daisy scrap page and another personalized shopping bag

I love this photo of the boys and their new dog.  She is a 2 year old golden retriever/lab/who knows what else and a delight to have in our family.  I love that I can finally do some scrapping with flowers and girly things!  This sketch was done for this weeks Sketchy Thursdays challenge.  The papers are DCWV (Fall Stack 2011), the title is from Straight from the nest (welcome) and Mickey and Friends (Daisy).  The flower I cut from the file on my last Gerbera Daisy post .  For the center of the flower I used some Crystal Effects sprinkled with some dazzling diamonds.  The heart I just cut by hand because in all my carts I couldn't find a heart the right shape to fit the journal card I was trying to use.

Second today is another personalized tote.  This one I used iron on vinyl, which doesn't iron on so well to canvas, you really have to use the tip of the iron to melt and smash it into the canvas waffle weave.  The shape and letters are from Wall Decore and More.

Thanks for looking!

Beaded nest and egg necklace

Something a little different today.  I found the instructions on the internet, google nest necklace and you will find lots of resources, I used THIS ONE.  This is super easy to make, minimul supplies and would be great as an Easter gift  (I made this one as a Christmas gift, but I will be making more for Easter).  Thanks for looking!

Happy New Year! 2012 goals scrapbook page

I don't usually do the New Years resolution thing, but this year I have a few goals that I thought would be good to get in writing.  I made a 12 x12 page and plan to use one of my scrapbook frames to post it where I can see it to remind myself where I'm going.  I used Fresh Floral Stack for the papers, and the cuts are from Lacy labels and Wall decor and more.
