Treat Sack

I really love using these printed sacks, (I get mine at a local craft store), they just add some interest and are super quick and easy to use.  The rosette is from the Artiste cartridge and the circles and stars are punches.  The sentiments are from my computer.

eek box!

This is a little box I wrapped with some paper and then cut a rosette from the Artiste cartridge.  The circles are all punches the sentiments are from the computer.

Squarey Monsters

I am in love with these Squarey Monsters from SVG Cutting Files...they are just CUTE!! These will be in the store on Friday.  The first one is Reggie, I just love that silly face.  I put him on a treat bag.  I only glued the top 2" of the background papers to the bag (the folded over part).  That way you just untie it or slip off the twine and then you can reuse the bag. The stamp is from the Batty For You stamp set from My Craft Spot.  The twine is from Trendy Twine.

For my next Squarey Monster I made a shaped card.  This little guy is named Clup doesn't that face make you want to take him home?!  He loves to recycle and he came with the trash can so I  made it into a shaped card.  I put him on foam tape and made a tag with the recycle symbols that come with him.  The stamp is from the Robots stamp set from My Craft Spot, and the twine is from Trendy Twine.

Pumpkin box

Love this creepy pumpkin face from the Artiste cartridge.  The box is 4x4x2 from online, a good size to fill with treats of some kind.  The tag is layered between the black paper and the box lid so it will pull out.

Hope you have a "creepy" fun day today!!

My Craft Spot Blog Hop!

I hope you have enjoyed the new releases this week and that you were inspired by our projects.  All the new releases will be available for purchase today in the My Craft Spot store.  
For my project I made two similar  cards.  For the sentiments on these cards I used the new
O Holy Night stamp set, LOVE this set!!

For this first one I cut the circle at 3" and stamped the image which is from the Stampin Up Peaceful Wishes stamp set (this is a very old set).  I added stickles to the pine needles and the pine cone to look like frost.  The Jute String on this one is Natural.

For the next card I cut the circle at 2.5" and used a different sentiment.  I also tried a different color of ribbon and  Ivory Jute String.

I will be giving away a $10.00 gift certificate to My Craft Spot for this hop, all you have to do is

Now on with the hop... here is what I created for Ann..

For the card base I used the SVG Cutting Files Fancy Label Card Base.  I then cut out the cupcake cutie SVG Outlines (designed by SVG Cutting Files to fit Jaded Blossom stamps) and stamped this sweet little girl, both the girl and the sentiments are from the Sweet Birthday Wishes stamp set from Jaded Blossom.  I colored her with my copics and put her on foam tape.  I added stickles to the cupcakes and the candle flames.  The stars are from a punch.

My Craft Spot New Release Day 4

This was such a quick and easy project to make, so if you need to make a lot of little somethings to give away this is the perfect thing!
I used the Elf Fry box from SVG Cutting Files and just used the box and not the add ons.  I cut it out of some chalkboard paper that already had some snowflakes on it and then I just stamped it with Stampin Up White craft ink.  Like I said super quick and easy.

Day 3 of My Craft Spot New Release

I love all the Tiny Tags stamp sets from My Craft Spot, and this one is no exception it is awesome!!  For the tags I used the Tiny Tags Metal Dies and stamped them with the new Tiny Tags Christmas stamp set.  The manger scene is from the Silhouette Store and so is the ornament box.  I cut the inside piece out of overhead projector sheets and the black image out of vinyl.  I put the image on the plastic cutout and rolled it up and slipped it into the glass ornament.

A little trick I do when I am cutting out a Tiny Tag with the Tiny Tags Metal Dies, I put all the dies on paper and cut them all out even if I only need one.  Then I put them in the bag with the dies and the next time I need a tag they are already cut out.
