Ticket Booklet

Hey there crafty friends!
I can't believe we are just days away from Christmas!!!
My sister had asked me to make her some kind of coupons for a gift idea she had for her secret santa recipient.  She asked me to do this back before Thanksgiving and I was like sure no problem...plenty of time. RIGHT!!  Where the heck did this month go??  Needless to say I put this little project together in a hurry.  I would have loved to have added a little more pizzazz to it.  But this will have to do.  The persons whose name she picked loves those little butterscotches..or haystacks.  The cookies made with the chinese noodles and butterscotch..anyhoo...She wanted little coupons she could give her to redeem for a batch for each of the next 12 months.  Well now...I didn't have the Jaded Blossom Ticket Book Die...but this gave me the perfect opportunity to say, Hey!!  I really need this now :).  Not that I've ever really needed an excuse before!!  

So here you have it!  This was the top cover:

and here are the rest of the tickets!

Aside from the ticket book die, I also used sentiments from Merry and Bright and Baked with Love from my Jaded Blossom collection!
Now, you might be wondering where are these beautiful papers and cutouts came from!!!  They come from my favorite digital scrapbooking company Nitwit Collections!!!  I didn't keep track of all the different files I used...but they are all AWESOME!!!  Their png files are so easy to use as print and cuts on your Silhouette Cameo and the paper prints out beautifully on my epson printer!!!  Since I discovered this I use them all the time!  I work 80+hrs a week right spare time is very rare and these are so quick and easy!!

Good to be back!!!!

Hey there crafty friends!!
Wow...has it been a long time!!! I did some crafting today for the first time in a very long time and did it ever feel good.  So therapeutic!!!  I actually have a new part time job in addition to my full time job.  I'm doing some evening activities at the assisted living facility that I have worked on and off again for the past couple of years.  The card was an activity I did with a few residents and the M&M stick was a prize for bingo tonight.  I'm hoping this will be the start of my blog being more active again.  I have certainly missed it!!!  I'm also entering these into the Jaded Blossom monthly challenge.  Something I haven't been able to do in so very long!!!

The card and the turkey were files from the silhouette store.  The rest of the products are all from Jaded Blossom... the sentiments on the card are from Let's Talk Turkey, the tag is the Treat Tag Die,  the sentiment on the tag is from Holiday Treat tags, and the bag the M&M's are in are 1x8 clear bags.

I've got a blank space!

Hey there crafty friends!!!
Wow...has it been a long time since i've made a blog post or done anything remotely creative w/ paper!!!!  This year has been a roller coaster ride for sure!  With any luck I will be spending time in my crafty room soon!  But first, I must rebuild my room!! This summer we decided to take on a huge kitchen remodel.  And I do mean HUGE!  So while we were at it, I decided to give my craft room/office a face lift, too!  I basically gutted it off all furniture, gave it a fresh coat of paint and a new border.  Now I need to fill 'er back up!!!   I've got some ideas brewing in this head of mine...but it's definitely a work in progress.  I'll share with you my blank space and keep you up to date with my progress!!  Wish me luck!! (as you can see, I have to share my space with the fur babies)

Hope to be able to share with you some paper creations very soon!!

Puppy Treat Box

Hey there Crafty Friends!
Today is my day to post for Digi Playground so I'm  sharing with you  a cute little dog treat!
My groomer asked me if there was some kind of little gift she could give to her clients and I thought this was the perfect thing! 

I changed up the paws from the file just a little bit.  I wanted to pop dot them up so I just deleted out the score line for where it would wrap around the box. Then I just shortened the width of them a little bit.  I also pop dotted his ears for a little more dimension although you can't see it very well from this picture!

You can find the Dog Favor Box by Rivka Wilkins right in the DigiPlayground store!

The cute stamp sentiment is from Jaded Blossom's Puppy Love stamp set.  

Hope you enjoyed my project today!  Thanks for stopping by!!!
