Today's Etsy Update

I was so excited, my gift bag kit was featured in the Etsy treasury yesterday. 
You can see the treasury HERE, it's fully of pretty blue snowflake stuff!

and today I finally got to play with the Papertrey Ink holiday fillers and made this cute little package of hot cocoa tags.  My inspiration was simple, I walked out to the mailbox and there were snow flurries!

Thanks for stopping by and have a nice cup of cocoa with lots of marshmellows and enjoy the beginning of colder weather.

BoBunny Sketch and Easy Air Brush Techinque

I made this lo for this weeks BoBunny challenge. 
Using this sketch from BoBunny as well.
and finally I completed my lo with a technique challenge for LCOM.  My technique is using an airbrush to match the color of your flowers to your lo. 
First choose the copic colors that will match the colors in your lo.  For this lo I chose shades of purple. 

Then I simple sprayed with the lighter color for some highlights that will show through the lighter areas of darker color. 
If you don't have a copic airbrush or markers you can color your flowers with any markers. 
I always keep a pack of all white flowers on hand in case I can't match any flowers I always have something I can create. 

Then just layer your flowers and add to your lo. 

Thanks for stopping by:)

Keisha's and Johny's Wedding

I was asked to help with some of the prep for the wedding festivities.  So today we finished up the favors, last night I made her 2 bags.  One for the bridal dance and one to keep her slippers, makeup and all the extras you need and don't have a place for them.  She was thrilled and I was happy to make her day a little more special.

Container for cards, and filled with all the fun little table favors.

Bag for the bridal dance.

Inside of bags are lined with her wedding color. 

Bag for whatever she needs to carry on her special day.
I have to say this is my favorite. 
And the collection. 

I'm so proud of myself for being able to make those bags in one evening and they bost cost less then $6.  What a bargain!  OK, so I'm a little proud of myself!

Today's Etsy Update

I just added an American Girl Craft Kit for only $6.  It has 3 of the American Girl Crafts items in it. Somehow I just don't think my little girl will appreciate them so her loss is your gain.  And you get all 3 items for less then the cost of one of the craft kits. 
I also added some needle felting and am adding a few larger items to craigs list.  I have a box full of fun fushion kits and extras if anyone is interested send me an email and I'll give you a very good deal.

Christmas Card and Tag Kits

My Etsy store is up and running and I'll be adding items daily so be sure to check back often!

Today I added 2 really cute card/tag kits. 

The first kit is all Martha Stewart Glitter Chirstmas.  The kit is only $5. and contains all the goodies needed to make 6 cards and 6 tags to embellish all your holiday gifts.  And the papers are double sided. 

This all comes packaed in this reuseable gift bag.  And I added a few extra stamped images so you have tons of choices for your gift tags. 
 And this is my favorite.  If you like vintage Christmas you'll love this K & Company line.  This comes with 6 die cut card base papers and lots of extras.  If you don't make cards this could be easily used for your holiday scrapbook pages, or it would make an adorable mini album! 

Additional quanties are available.  Send me an email if interested. 
Making these kits first made me start on my Christmas cards even before my stamps have arrived. 
I'm so excited to start early this year, this is a first for me!

Party Favors

I just posted my add to craigs list and have orders already!
First I made these cute little favors for Keshia's wedding from store purchased tins.  I want to add ribbon to the rims but am having a hard time getting a good adhesive, that looks good when it's finished. 

And these are for a Christening of a new baby boy.   Available individually or as stackables.
