Flower Bouquet Center Pieces

Now that people know I can make things I have be recruited to help with the center pieces for a pot luck we do for our classified staff at my school. I came up with the theme of spring so that I could make flower center pieces. I normally do them in vases but they were out at the dollar store and I saw these cute baskets. They are a little harder to work with but cute. I had to improvise on how to get the flowers to stand up. I ended up sticking the wood into a starburst and using hot glue to tack them down. It worked well. I received a lot of compliments.

Again I used Plantin for the flowers and Penny Black stamps to decorate the baskets. I colored the stamps with my prism colored pencils.

Flower Bouquet

Cute Flowers I made for my sister in laws. I used a cute Penny Black stamp and inked the edges of the scallop. Attached it with a ribbon. Filled the vase jelly beans and added the paper flowers. I cut the flowers from Plantin SchoolBook.


I made this clock for my mother in law. I found this idea on the Cricut message board.  I glued the paper to the canvas, added ribbon to the seams of the paper, and decorated it. Added a couple pictures and a saying. I bought a clock kit from Joann's and followed the instructions on how to install it.

Mini scrap book ~~Toilet Paper Roll 1

I found this great you tube video on the Cricut message board and decided to try one for myself. I liked it so much I made two.
I made mine by smashing the toilet paper holder together then applying spray adhesive all over the roll and wrapping the paper around it. Once it dried I glued ribbon over the crease. I then put the wallet size photos, I ordered them through Costco, on the paper. I tied ribbon to the binding. For how to bind what they tutorial above. The tags I used on the inside of each roll where cut from Plantin School Book cartridge, chipboard or thick paper, than cover with decorative paper.
The cover I used my Cricut to cut out the letter and my stamp from Micheal's dollar bin. I used gamsol to blend the colors on my girl.
Lots of ideas from lots of great women crafters came into play on this project.

School Card

I have been busy making cards lately. I never made cards before the last couple months. I am loving stamps and using damsol.
I bought my damsol in a 32 oz can and put it in small bottles and gave it to a couple people. has it cheap and ships it without a hazard fee.
I have been addicted to you tube. They have some great videos on how to make things. They have inspired me to make many creations. So here are my latest creations.
This is a card I made for one of my students!
