Tile Coasters for Brandy

Last year Brandy starting taking ballet and I loved that she was doing something completely for herself that she loved.  When I saw the Aspire stamp from CTMH, I knew I had to use it to make something for her.  So, thanks to my wonderfully creative and talented up line, Joy..who I first saw make theses...a made her a set of Tile Coasters.  Here's a pic of one:

They were soooo simple to make.  I picked up a pack of tiles from Home Depot, stamped the images with StazOn ink and then sprayed with a clear sealer.  Waala!  Done. They were so fast and easy, I made a set for me and a set for her. 

Until next time,



I wanted to share a couple of projects I completed this weekend.  These cute little spring birdhouses. 

Shabby Chic.  I am using this for my pens at my desk.

I used primary colors for this one.  Love the little bird with glasses.  I may use this for a little gift for Noah before school starts.  :)

I loved, loved, working on these projects!  I downloaded the file from SVG Cuts.  It is their Spring Birdhouse set.  I used my paper stash and cut the shapes using my Eclips Machine.  I am having so much fun with it!  I literally use it every time I create.  So much fun.  Sorry the pics aren't great but I think you get the idea.

Until next time,

Decorating Birthday Hats

As promised, another post. 

I thought I would share with you a few pics of everyone decorating thier own birthday hats for Brandy's party.  It's kind of corny but Brandy actually called my on her way home and said that she had a really good time doing that.  That's all I needed to know.

I downloaded the file from SVG Cuts, it is included in thier Happy Birthday To You Set.  I cut the shape using my Eclips and white cardstock.  I put a few crafty items out and let everyone go.  It was interesting what everyone came up with. 

Everyone busy punching shapes and using the shape scissors to cut.  Yes, crafters you can still use your shape scissors!

Even my 85 year old father in law was getting into the fun!

Ella with her hat! She made it all by herself!

Brandy made mine :)

Savannah's beautiful hat.

All the grandkids with thier hats.  Even Josh was a sport wearing his.  :) 

Until next time,
