Happy Birthday Rosie Mini!

Today is Rosie's birthday! Well Rosie, I know how much you love Sammy Hagar, so I decided to make you a mini notepad that looks like his guitar!
I used my new Eclips to make the Sammy Hagar Guitar file,
Cinch to bind it together, and
Timeless Twine for the guitar strings.


I hope you have a great birthday!

Thanks for stopping, you next stop is Lena!

eCraft Sewing Blog Hop

This is the second part of the eCraft blog hop with a chance to win a new eCraft!

Our theme was sewing, we all made projects with our eCraft with a sewing theme for national sewing month.

For my project I made a card with a sewing machine. You can cut fabric on the eCraft, but because I don't sew, I made a card with the sewing theme. 
My second project is a 'spool'. I used Trendy Twine and cardstock. I found a free clipart image of a spool and made it into an svg, then cut it with my eCraft. I love that I can find an image and just cut!





Thanks for stopping! Your next stop is

Scraps Blog Hop Day 2

I don't have a project for today, but I did want to share how I store my scraps and, show some BLOG CANDY!!


This is my large scraps folder for solid color scraps. My husband came home with it from work one day and asked if I could use it, I was so excited!
I use a tote in my Scrapbox to store my patterned scraps. I don't use them often but just can't throw them out.
This is my last scrap container. I store extra die cuts and borders in here. My daughter and her friends like to look through them when they are making a project.

And here's the Blog Candy! I have six 8.5x11 Creating Keepsakes scrapbooking kits. There will be 3 winners and each will get two kits. I will choose two winners that are also a fan of my Facebook page, and one winner from the comments.
Thanks so much everyone!!

So, on to my project. I didn't have much time to craft this week, but didn't want to leave the hop, so I made a quick card.
Every piece of paper used was a scrap, even the white base. I used a scrap piece of 'tie dye' paper I had for the weave and found some colors that went well with it. After the weave was down, I started the flower face that says 'you make me smile!'. I posted pics to show how it was made.

I used the largest Peachy Keen stamp I had to make the smiley face, and punched it out with a one inch punch.
I placed my face on the white sheet of paper as a guide to where the stamp should be. I made the curve with the stamp, removed, and made the bottom.
After the stamps were on, I used spellbinders to cut.
I attached the yellow face with pop dots, and added an action wobble under the white 'flower' to make it dance!
And here is my card! I hope you enjoy, and I hope to have more time for tomorrows post.
I do have blog candy that I will be posting on tomorrows post. If you don't have time to come back tomorrow, don't worry, you are still entered.
I would love for you to follow my blog, but I do most of my posting on my Facebook page that can be found to the right of this post. Thanks so much!

I wanted to add that this is my first blog hop, so I'm sorry if I missed something I should have posted.

Four cards out of two 12x12 sheets of cardstock...

Here are two cards I made out of two DCWV sheets of card stock. (I did have to use a sheet of white paper for the stamped images.) Stamps are from Sparkle Creations. I did post the cut formula on my Facebook page that can be found to the right of this post.
