Pay It Forward

"Pay It Forward" is the idea of blessing someone with a random act of kindness without expecting anything in return. It’s passing on a kindness, hoping that your recipients will do the same, and forming a never-ending chain of goodwill. But it isn’t only kindness, it is also a means to connect and share instead of just keeping it to ourselves.

"I promise to send an original creation to the (1st) 5 people who leave a comment here. They must, in turn, post this on there blog, and send something they make to the 1st 5 people who comment on their status."

Here's what you need to do:
1. Leave a comment on this post. I will send a handmade gift to the first 5 commenters.
2. Create a post on your blog offering the same.
3. Send a handmade item to your first 5 commenters.
4. It must be sent to your 5 people sometime in 2011.
Please do not sign up unless you are fully committed to making your 5 items!

You can email me your full mailing address at:

Easter Egg Hunt Blog Hop Day 3

Today I am showing off a page that I made using some Treasure Box Design cuts.  The actual placement of the cuts was borrowed from a layout made by Designs on Cloud 9.  I used different papers and a bit of a different layout but the way the piecings were placed on the pages is very similar.

The paper pack used was the Sweetheart line by Close To My Heart.


Now for eggs.  I didn't have any in this layout so I thought I would put it in the following picture.  Enjoy.. mmm chocolate.


Continue down the page until you see all of my blog postings for his hop.  Count all the eggs and add it to the total of eggs for all the hops.  There is a grand prize.

Creative Kuts Project

I had a page I worked on a while ago.  It was pictures of me when I was a child at a dance recitle.  I had used a patter set from Cricut and I never really liked the way it turned out.  See for yourself.



 Well I asked my friend at Creative Kuts if they had  a dance girl and they created "Ballerina Bella".  So I redid the girl.  Here she is.


I think it looks much better. :)

Creative Kuts Kuttin Up Tuesday Challenge

Today for the Creative Kuts Design Team we had to make a card using a paper piecing.  I made this card using "Hello Spring". The paper line I used is Miracle from Close to My Heart.  I used my punch to do the edge and I used some pop up dots on the butterflies.  I doubled over my flowers to give them a 3D look.

Remember that if you create a project using our Tuesday Design Challenge and you post it on the Creative Kuts Facebook page, you have a chance to win an Itty Bitty Kuts or your choice.  This happens every week so keep checking back.

Saturday Creative Kuts Design Team Creation

Today I did a two page layout using the Baby Boy pack from DCWV and the Oh Baby's First pattern set from Creative Cuts.  This is a page of my son's first day of life.  The idea behind the layout is that this is the firsts of many firsts.

Creative Kuts Thursday File

For my Thursday file this week I decided that I would use the Bible with Flower file that Creative Kuts had up for free.  Easter is coming and often people forget that it is a religious holiday.  In my family Easter is bigger than Christmas although I like Christmas a lot too.

I made this card using a few funky paper packs I picked up at the dollar store.  I always forget I have them.  The gold, white, purple and dark blue are all specialty papers.  Even the Easter Blessings is a paper from these packs.  You have to love the dollar store.

I borrowed a friend Cuttle Bug a long time ago and the other day I finally bought a folder.  I used it for the purple to give it a textured look.  The ribbon was tied using a trick I learned.  If you make a loop and tie a nice knot with both loose ends, you can cut the loop in the middle and it looks like one ribbon with a knot in it.  I also did a bit of stamping up the one side with a stamp from the CTMH Wing's Workshop on the Go stamp set.

Well I hope you enjoy.

Creative Kuts Kuttin Up Tuesday Design Team Challenge

This week our challenge was to alter an item we found at the dollar store.  I picked up this wood mounted wall plaque and used it to make a cute wall hanging for a babies bedroom.  I used the Sweet Dreams Babies pattern set for the sleeping baby and the writing is also a pattern set from Creative Cuts it is the A Baby wall art pattern.

I painted the background with blue and white acrylic paints.  Then I used Marshmallow Glimmer Mist to give it a bit of shine.  I put little yellow dots to look like stars.  I painted the edge in Silver Acrylic paint.

Boys Boys Boys - Echo Park Paper

I do a lot of scrapping with certain papers.  Of course I use a lot of Close to My Heart paper but its not just because I sell the stuff I really love their papers.  I also use a TON of BoBunny paper.  My new favorite paper line is Echo Park.  I recently bought their WinterTime line and the Little Boy line.  I also JUST got their SummerTime line from last year.  Here are two layouts I created with the Little Boy paper.

Saturday Creative Kuts Design Team Layout

As a member of the Creative Kuts Design Team, I post a new project every Saturday.  Today's project is a card I made featuring the Barrels of Fun pattern set.  I used a wood grain stamp and stamped the brown paper before I cut it.  It really gave the barrel a neat effect.

Creative Kuts Birthday Surprise

Today I made a birthday card using the Creative Kuts Birthday Surprise file.  The original picture displays a white bear but I decided to use a brown bear instead.  I used a Close to My Heart stamp to get the happy birthday.  My folding the heart on the bow it kind of gave it more a 3D effect.  Hope you enjoy.

Creative Kuts Kuttin Up Tuesday Challenge

Hi Guys,

This weeks Kuttin Up Tuesday Challenge was to make something for spring.  I chose to do a card!  I used the pattern set "Thinking of You".  You can purchase your own set here:  http://www.creativekuts.com/Thinking-of-You-TOY1.htm.  I made my card in the shape of a circle.  I find this gives a fun look to cards.  I then used a scallop circle that I cut out with SCAL to look like a big flower in the background.  I chose some really vibrant colours to make my birds stand out.  The "I'm So Thankful for You" stamp is from Close to My Heart.
I made the flowers look more poofy by doubling the nuber of flowers and off setting them.  I used brads to hold them togeher.

Rock Star

Well today's blog features a layout I did with the "Rock With Me" paper piecing pattern set from Creative Kuts.  If you click on Rock star above it will bring you to their site.  I used the Hooligans paper line from Close To My Heart.  We love to play Rock Band and at the time drink Rock Star.  This page represents the party we had for my 30th birthday.  I was hanging out with all of my favorite friends.  Some people are missing from these photos but their pictures were not decent enough to put in my scrapbook but they were all cherished for being there.  Thanks Cal, Sarah and Darryl to also celebrating in my special day.
