Fog is in the air

Hello.  I swear I'm walking around in a fog.  My brain can't retain anything anymore.  Lot's more to think about going on around here.

Anyway, I've stopped by to share my creation for the Creative Knockouts challenge this week.  This week the challenge is snowflakes.  Show us your snowflakes.  I have used a beautiful image from the sponsor, Sweet N Sassy Stamps.  It's called Chickadee & Berries.



I hope you will join us this week. Take care.

Fashion Restructure

Hello all.  I realized I haven't shared any of my sewing project in a while.  My daughter and I have gotten into refashioning clothes from Goodwill.  We saw so many mens shirt refashions on Pinterest so we have been trying a few.

I forgot to take the before pictures but here's a the finished result.  I took one man's dress shirt and a t-shirt to make the top.


My daughter couldn't wait to get into the finished outfit.  LOL!


Take care.

Christmas is coming

Hello all.  Sorry I've been gone for so long.  It's really rough around here. I have been busy trying to put some things together for my daughter's upcoming birthday, Christmas and still looking for a job. So my days are pretty packed with activity, just not a lot of crafting.

I came to share today a card I did get to make.  I used an image from Deedee's Digis. I guess this is the start of my Christmas cards for the year.


The sentiment is from TLC Creations.

Well, I hope to be back soon, but no promises.  Take care.

Bugaboo Tutorial - Z Fold with a Twist

Good Morning.  It's tutorial time at Bugaboo Stamps and it's my turn to host.  I'm excited because I have finally sat down and created the tutorial for the Z-Fold with a twist card that I made so long ago.  

I used the super adorable Sewing Bears - Thread on the front of my card.  I know, I know...it looks like a regular Z-fold card, but there is a surprise twist there for you - keep looking.





See the twist?  Isn't that cool?!!  I thought so.  If you're like me there is never enough writing space on cards so here is a way to add some added space or you could create a pocket back here and include a gift card or cash.  See?!!

So here's what you need to do to create the card.


1 - Start with an 8 x 11 piece of card-stock. 



2 - Score on the 8 inch side at 4 inches.  


3 - On the 11 inch side score at 2.75 & 5.5



4 - Cut off the two right smaller pieces.



5 - Now fold on your score lines and decorate.

I'm visual so here's a couple of photos to illustrate what I am talking about.


These photos represent the steps 1 thru 4.  (I added pencil lines so you could see the score marks, you don't need to mark anything when you make yours.)


These photos represent how you will fold everything.

I hope this helps and you'll give it a try.  I would love to see what you do with this, so please add your link to the comments section.  I want to see!!!!

Take care.

Gardening Nut

OMG - I am so late with this one.  I made a card for Nut day, which was last week.  Yeah, I'm late.  But I wanted to share anyway because I love how this little card came out.  I found another use for some of the punches and dies I have in my stash and that is always a good thing.

The image is from Bugaboo Stamps, Gardening Nut.  She is adorable.


Check out the Bugaboo Store, there's some really cute digis there.
