About Me

My Photo
I would classify myself as an artist. It took me a while to finally accept that monicker, but that's what I am; AN ARTIST!!! I have a wonderful hubs that supports my "talents" in most all avenues, except maybe when the credit card bill comes in the mail...LOL And I have 4 great kids and 5 beautiful grandchildren that I love to pieces. Come on by and sit a spell and "STAMP 'TIL YA CRAMP!!! & "CROP 'TIL YA DROP!!!"

I 'bang'ed another one out !!!!

Fantabulous Cricut Challenge for this week. 
PUN!!!!
Create something that has a pun and (of course) a Cricut cut image. 


I created mine with Everyday Paper Dolls.
I used 3 different hairstyles with bangs.

I LOVE IT!!!!  It made me giggle!!!

I hand wrote the sentiment to give it a more funky edge(using a sharpie).

The frame is a Sizzix die. 

A little gold cording and I call it done.

Until later, stylists........Gotta split(end)........TFL!!!!

Tag...you're it!!!

Fantabulous Cricut Challenge blog has another challenge and its to 
use a tag on your creation. 

Well, my creation is a card that is shaped like a tag, 
and another tag (velum) on top of that. 


I used Serenade Cricut cartridge for the bird cage lobster trap.  
Bwahahahahahahahaha....yes even a lobster trap can be FANCY, 
well...if I had a lobster trap it would be FANCY!!!!

You can lift up the velum tag and see the other sea life in the vicinity.

This card could be used as a cute dinner invite for a night out of seafood.

Until later,  seafood lovers......Gotta split.....TFL!!!!!!

New studio.......YAY!!!!

   We moved last September and my studio was in such a disarray it was hard to focus 
and actually get anything done. 
Now I have NO excuses......Bwahahahahahahahahaha!!!

This is facing the front of our house.....so I can see if anyone arrives. 
Check out the scissors holding the fabric. 
I purchased those at Dollar Tree.  They are plastic and purple.  I hot glue the blades in back so they won't move and also a hanger.  Then I spray painted them white. Hung them at the angle I wanted and then just draped the fabric strip in the blades and waa lllaaa I have a window treatment.



 Most of my stamp sets.

 My paints, glues, brushes and individuals stamps.

 Paper, paper and MORE paper!  Ha!!

 Island I created using two short bookcases and a piece of MDF board.
Storage for most of my embellishments.  
There is more storage on the other side. 


Finally, I can now enjoy my somewhat clutter free room and find my schtuff!!!


Until later, my craft friends.......Gotta split.....TFL!!!!!

Easter is coming soon.

I hope this egg hatches in time for the big Easter egg hunt. 
Either way I can still enter it into several challenges.
BBTB2 has an Easter challenge and 
Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog has a sketch challenge. 


The egg and the egg holder are from Picturesque Cricut cartridge.
I haven't used nearly enough of the images on any of my carts.  
So, I'm trying to find some new ones that I can use on projects.

Until later, hunny bunnies..........Gotta split......TFL!!!!

I love you.....

Anyway you say it....
it still means a lot!!!!

I purchased these pencils from Hobby Lobby last year in the 
Valentine's clearance.
I always peruse the clearance rack to see what I can use.
I have those large plastic tubs for every holiday and just insert the 
items into the tubs until 
the next year and open and see what I can give out to the grands.

OK, back to the project.....


I inserted the pencils into these 2" X 8" cello bags (from Stampin' Up!)
I wanted a tag for the top.

I cut a dark pink base at 3-1/4" X 4-1/4" 
Scored one inch to make the base an even square of 3-1/4"

Cut the hands from My Community Cricut cart
and the hearts are from George and Basic Shapes Cricut cart.

Adhered the heart in the palm and folded the two fingers down to 
create the 
I LOVE YOU sign language symbol.
Then adhered the hands to the base layer.

Adhered them to the cello bags with tiny glue dots. 



Aren't they adorable.....love 'em.

Until later, lovlies.......Gotta split......TFL!!!!
