Shadow Box Banks

 This years way to give teenagers money!  

I have so many nieces and nephews that are older and just would love to get money for Christmas and I am not a big fan of just giving money so I always try to find a creative way to give it to them. This year I made these links out of shadowbox frames. I bought a set of eight shadowbox frames from Michael’s and order them online. They were very reasonably priced that way. My husband drilled a slot on the top for the money to be able to go into. I added some cute scrapbook paper in the back of the frame and vinyl cut using my silhouette their names, easy Peezy!

All the kiddos like these quite a bit. And I figure they will have long-term use for them to continue to add their money to you. And it’s just a picture frame so you just open the back like you would a frame to get your money out.

Grad Card

 Here is a quick card I whipped up that my husband needed asap. I used what little grad paper I had left. It is Paper Studio. I added some brads to make it sparkle. Simple but it felt good to craft!

Mom card

 It has been awhile since I have posted. Baby #2 is 7 months now and I have been wanting to get some craft time in. I was able to make a few cards the other day that are simple but pretty. Here is one for mothers day. Hope you all enjoy seeing something from me.

Mason Jar candles

 Hello my wonderful followers that have not given up on me. I have been so busy with my littles that I haven't been focusing on crafts.
 These are mason jar candle holders. I used timer flameless candles inside so my recipients would not have to get in and out of the jar. The vinyl was cut using my Silhouette.
 Lots of glitter inside using the same technique as the glitter ornaments. (Floor wax and glitter)
They came out nicely and I hope that my nieces like them.

Birthday Set

I finally made something again! My girl is almost 3 and I have really been lagging on crafting for awhile now. Funny thing is I am making a few things and baby #2 is due in September! It will be crazy busy again!

I made a gift bag and card set for a little boys birthday. Wasted on him but hopefully his parents liked it, if they noticed.
I just used some pretty papers and a few old stamps I have. It was nice to make something again.

Father's Day

 Here are some cards I made awhile back for fathers day using my Cricut that I never posted. Since I saw them as I was scrolling through I decided to post them.
Thank you all of you that are still following me through my dry spell. I did make 2 cards this week I need to take pictures of and post.

FSU Grad Card

 I made this card for my sister in law who just graduated nursing school. I took parts of her announcement to make this card. I love to do that so it makes the card extra special.
The inside I stamped this cute sentiment.

CAS Sympathy card

 I used some scraps of paper left over from baby shower invitations for this card. The Stamp is Jaded Blossom. I use a square punch to cut the flags. Pretty simple card but the receiver loved it.

V day Day 2

Here are a couple more V day cards I made this year.

One clean and simple card and one loud card. I used a variety of stamps and papers on these too. Paper I have had for a long time and stamps that I have had for years as well. Trying to use up my stash. It could take me a few years, lol!

Valentine's Day

A few days late but here is a card I made for Valentine's Day for a customer. I haven't had a lot of sells lately since I haven't made much but I made and sold 3 cards for V day.
Simple layout and a Stampin Up Stamp made this card. Cute papers and a few stickers and there you have it. Nothing complicated but cute results.

Simple Cards

 Hello all! I know I have been slacking in posting on my blog and I am so thankful you have not deleted me. I am super busy with my toddler and have not had much creative mojo. I hope to get back to it. Until then here are a couple of quick cards I made.
Nothing elaborate about these two cards. Very simple to create. Thank you for all your kind words and viewing my work!

Extra Special gum wrapper

 I was asked by a friend to come up with an idea to wrap up some EXTRA bubble gum. I made about 100 of these papers. Luckily I did not have to put them all together. I did all the tape for the church ladies to put them together easily.

Reusable Bag Gifts

I was a step ahead of CA craziness on this one! I made my family all reusable bags for Christmas and now CA has a no plastic bag law so lucky timing.
 I used my Cameo and just love how these came out.
 These are small bags to hold toys for my nephews.

Hello all my wonderful followers! I have missed you dearly. I am so sorry I have been MIA but my focus has changed to the cutest little demanding red headed girl. I will be crafting here are there and will be back in full force some day soon.

Here are a few things I have made lately...
 I used Stampin Up stamps on this card. I played with the lines of the paper on this one.

 U had fun making a pin wheel type of focal point on this one.
I hope you all like these cards and don't give up on me! I will post as much as possible.
