New Moon Treat Bags

As you all know, the new Twilight Series Movie, New Moon premiers the week and we are very excited for it at our house!! In fact, we're so excited my daughter and I came up with these fun "treat bags" to take with us for our group of girls that are going to see it. And thanks to a really AWESOME friend for inviting us to see the movie at 7:00pm on Thursday night...instead of the midnight showing everyone else is going to. They rented the entire theater and invited us...along with a bunch of other people (wahoo)!!

So here's the treat bags we created...
Bag includes: Bite Me bag of Oreos, Bag of red & silver Kisses and a can of pomegrante 7up. I did the large bag of "red velvet" cookies, but they won't fit in the bag so my hubby says those are for him. I stamped all the bags with my favorite Fancy Pants stamp too to give it that Twilight feel.

This is what the bag looks like closed up. I also added in a pack of "tissues" for the girls...just i…

New Moon Bracelets

Last weekend I was in a crafty mood and very excited to know that we were getting close the premier of New Moon. So I created these fun bracelets with in honor of New Moon movie. I made one for me and one for my daughter! These were actually inspired by a gorgeous necklace I saw at Ann Taylor....but I couldn't find big white round beads.

Dictionary Flowers & More

I love making these Dictionary Flowers!! One day I happened upon a great blog post from Leah Fung from Scrapbooks, Etc magazine and she showed you in a video how to make these yummy dictionary paper flowers. So last weekend I met up with a friend and we went CRAZY making tons of these flowers in all shapes and sizes. Below these flower pictures I listed some tips that I learned from playing.

Here's some flower tips I posted over on the Imaginisce blog:
TIP #1 - Dictionary paper works best, it's not too think and not too thin. I just went to the local thrift shop (D.I) and I bet some of those used book shops would be a good place to look. Plus it was only $3...and it will make TONS of flowers.
TIP #2 - In the video they top off the flowers with other paper flowers and buttons, but I have to admit that I think the iTop Brads really finish off these flowers so much better. I would suggest poking the ned of your scissors through the center before it dries completely...the glue may …

I Love Card Swaps!!

Sometimes I want to scrapbook, but the idea of finding the right layout, the right product and the right photos seems like a lot of work. So I make cards!! A while ago I started a card swap, which I enjoy coordinating with some very talented friends and neighbors. These are some of my cards from past swaps!!
I borrowed my sister-in-law's Home Decor Cricuit cartridge for my last card swap. The following two cards show what I created. The large orange flower on the first card was from the cartridge and the bracket quote on the second card is also from the cartridge. I love the bottom card the most, may be hard for me to actually give away!
Note: The center for the flower on the card above was created with the iTop Tool by Imaginisce!
