Christmas card

This is a Christmas card I made today, I am planning on making more. I used the

Z1686 Cricut® Art Philosophy Collection

for the Joy and for the little squares. I used the Wonderland for the paper and the letters. 

The ribbon is also Close to My Heart. I used glass glitter that I got off of Ebay. Makes it look really sparkly. Really easy card to make.

Cute Joy Banner

Here is a Banner I made at my friend Kelly's She is my upline for Close To My Heart, she didn't design these she got them from her upline. I just wanted to share how cute these are. This was made with all Close To My Heart supplies,  my favorite stuff. You can visit my site Diana  very easy and quick project.

Well a few weeks ago I went over to my friend Mary and we made these cute NOEL banner, she is so creative. I am sharing what we made, not sure what we used though. If you want any of that info just let me know.

30 Days of Handmade Gift Giving Blog Hop!

Hi everyone I hope you are enjoying all the great gift ideas, I know I am because this year in our family it will be a handmade gift type of year. 
Of course there are also great handmade gifts to give to family, friends, coworkers, friends from church, teachers, babysitters, so many wonderful gifts to give that always makes someone smile. 
If you are from Playing with Paper, then you are in the right spot. If you just started you can go to the beginning at The Scrapoholic. There are so many awesome ideas, plus her blog is pretty cool, well all the blogs are pretty cool.
Well my gift is fairly simply, I love Hot Chocolate and love to give some away as gifts. So I made a cute label to put on a Christmas mug to give as a gift to someone, not telling who, could be someone who is going to read this blog so I cant tell. 

I used my Cricut to cut the label, I used the exclusive Close To My Heart Cricut® Art Philosophy cartridge, 

You can use any thing you want to create the label or just use a card, which ever works best for you. All the papers and stamps came from the Wonderland kit.


I popped dot the mug. added a little bling.


I added the hot chocolate in a little bag, tied it with waxy flax, from CTMH, added some Cinnamon, because I love the smell of Cinnamon.   I also added a ribbon to the handle. The Mug probably from the dollar store or Walmart. 

 Thanks for looking, I hope everyone is enjoying the gift giving blog hop. Be sure to check back tomorrow to see Day 23. If you would like to leave a comment I would love it.

Cuttlebug Quilling set

Last weekend my friend Jann and I went to the Rubber Stamp and Scrapbooking Expo, had a lot of fun. worn out from walking to much. Probably just way out of shape, I need to walk more so I am ready for the CK Convention, which is much bigger. 
Well I had fun and I bought a few things, I bought this Cuttlebug Quilling set. I only made one flower so far, Took me a little to figure it out, but I think it looks right. I guess I need to make a few more. I hope to get the other flower as well.

New card I made

I made this card for a challenge but didn't get time to upload it to the site. So I decided to still post my card. 
I used Mothers Day Bouquet and Storybook  Cricut Cartridges. I also used the Cuttlebug and the stamp and papers are CTMH.

Well this weeks challenge for Flaunt It Fridays was using the cartridge Twinkle Toes, one that I do not have, surprised  but I don't have all the cartridges. LOL I decided to use the Paper dolls for Every Day.

Here are two Cub Scouts I made for our Blue & Gold. I made them really simple because I made about 20 of them.

My Favorite Thing

Well the other night at church, they had asked each of us our favorite thing or things, well I have plenty of course, I have my family and friends and all my animals. I have my Cricut, my scrapbooking supplies, my camera, my computer and all my papercraft friends. But as I was thinking I also remembered that every day I use this step stool for my feet under my work desk. This was made  by my son Justin who passed away in September 2005. He made is in high school wood working class. I remember he didn't really like the teacher in this class, but I was so happy when he made this. I have this everyday to remind me that he is still here with me and I will see him again. I really miss my son Justin and really wish he didn't have to leave us at such a young age. RIP my Son Justin I love you so much.

This is my Flaunt it Friday challenge. This one was hard because I haven't used the Tags,Bags, boxes & More cartridge before. I wasn't really even sure how to find it on my Gypsy. So I found a video on YouTube, gotta love Youtube and found how to make it. I made the size to fit a gift card in it. Will make a great gift box for someone. Haven't decided yet who to give it. The flower is also from the same cart. The paper is CTMH.
