Mini Calendar Gift

I made this Easel Card with a  Mini Calendar for Ashton but I couldn't do a post until after her B Day. I had lots of fun with these little critters :)




I used Cottage Cutz Spring Hedgehogs , Sweet&Sassy Clouds and Raindrops die set, and mini calendars from Taylored Expressions 
A bit of distress ink for cheeks and nose and clouds also :)

A Card for Susan & Paul

Valentines 2018

confetti flinger

I made this quick card for my sister and her hubbie. I just had to try my confetti flinger die and YUP! it WORKS!
that is why you see my finger holding it down for the inside photo..lol
I used the die from Ellen Hutson-confetti flinger, heart paper is printed from Cricut Design Space
the stamp set Heartlockets2love and key dies from Stamps of Life and the confetti die from Cricut Cuttlebug Springtime Confetti. The sentiment stamp came from the Artistry Collection for Cricut from Close to My Heart


A Card for Mom

A Yummy Valentine card for my Mom. I put the candy heart on a removable dot which is on top of a paper heart, so the card will still be complete :)
The pattern piece is printed from Design Space (red,love filters used)
Die from a Stamps of Life stamp set TicTacToe2play
Ribbon from stash Reasonable Ribbon
and of course a bit of Wink of Stella

ps. I do plan on giving Mom some addition  Dove Heart Candies :)

Decor for a 1st Birthday

I was asked to make some 1st Birthday Party decorations :)  I am pleased with the turn out and am hoping the recipient is as well!

I used  Cricut Design Space, Bazzill Cardstock, Cotton Polka Dot Fabric with added Heat N Bond,Glitter Foam, Glitter and Shimmer Cardstocks, Mini clothespins for the picture attachment, Ribbons from Michaels and my stash of Reasonable Ribbon.
 
 
 


 
 
I used long thin skewers that could be cut to needed length and a few longer pop sticks. The #1 is on a very thing dowel I painted white which can also be cut to needed length. I added more ribbon bows and extra strands that could be used in between the months or at the ends to hide attachment if wanted. I'm hoping Jill will send me a few pictures of how she uses the decor! Happy Birthday Addison!
thanks for looking :)

It's Almost Christmas...

This time of year always makes one think of many things. As I rummage through my craft room,I looked at some past postings and  https://tfoley55.blogspot.com/2016/03/i-did-it-again.html is one of them. I then realized I never did post about the very 1st time I actually used any of my beloved G45 collections!  They make me feel all fuzzy inside and lots of special memories flow in an out of this head...anyhow,  Here it is the the VERY 1st


Merry Christmas Walt!  Miss You lots  Love T
