I have two fun faithful cards to share with you. The first says, ”In a world where you can be anything, be kind.” This tells us we have a choice in how we react and treat others. We can be anything, so why would you want to be anything but kind?
The second card says, ”I need a little bit of coffee and a whole lot of Jesus.” Jesus is like the espresso in my latte. Today, I needed a triple shot of espresso in my latte! It was one of those days!
I hope you have a wonderful night. Until tomorrow…
I hope you are having a great weekend.
Today’s tags were made using Gina K Designs’ Holiday Foil-Mates. Such a great product and so easy to use. I simply took a sheet of sentiments and paired it up with her festive foils. I ran them through the laminating machine and out popped pure magic! I took the completed sheet and used her coordinating tag set to create these very special tags. Yes, I’m still Christmas crafting.
Tomorrow, I have one last Holiday tag to share with you. Until tomorrow…
Today’s tags were fun to make. I cut the shapes out of kraft paper using my Cricut. I cut out four circles-two solid, one of a dog and one of a cat. I covered each of the solid pieces with washi tape and then glued the animal pieces over rhe top of the solid pieces. I finished off each tag by inking the edges with vintage photo oxide ink.
I truly adore how simple and clean these look. I absolutely love them!
Do you use washi in your projects?
Today I would like to share with you two tags I made by upcycling a cereal box. I used the We R Memory Keepers Tag Punch Board for the tags and I covered them with Graphic 45 paper. I inked up the edges with vintage photo oxide ink; I really like how that technique adds so much interest to projects! I used coordinating chipboard pieces as embellishments and then some pretty yellow tule as ribbon.
I hope you are having a great week! Until tomorrow…
Today I would love to share with you this fun shaker card. I have not made a shaker card for over a year, but I found an informative video by Lorrie Nunemaker which simplified the process. You can view her video by clicking on the link below.
I was able to use my Cricut Explorer to get the perfect cuts. I took Lorrie’s advice and used fun foam to pop up the card instead of foam tape. I haven’t used fun foam before and I loved it for this project.
For the shaker bits, I used sequins I purchased for my daughter years ago! I’m so happy I kept them
For the strings, I used twine I purchased from Michael’s and adhered them to the card by using art glitter glue from Amazon.
My ”oops” moment came after I filled the shaker with sequins, aligned cardstock over the opening and then proceeded to turn the card over to make sure everything looked centered. Can you figure out which step I forgot? Yep, I forgot to adhere the cardstock over the opening! Sequins went flying everywhere 😊
What’s one of your most recent ”oops” moments?
I finished the hot cocoa pack order for my coworker. She requested 35 sets! She was thrilled with the finished result. Reach out if you would like to hear about my process. You can also click on the link below for what inspired this project.
I am off to the airport to pick up my son for Christmas! Comment below and share your special holiday plans.
I would like to share with you my good news! But first, I have to give you some backstory. I watched a YouTube video by Amber at
and learned how to make these adorable hot cocoa packs for my craftfair. Well, I only sold a few of them and was rather discouraged. Today, I received an email from one of my coworkers and she ordered 35 packs! She wants them for her son’s kindergarten class next Friday. I’m so excited to fill her order. I will make sure to post a picture of the finished lot.

Never be discouraged with yourself! You are amazing!
