Leprechaun trap

I got this file from  I love their files.  I have not added the chocolate coins inside to entice the Leprechaun inside yet but I will get it done before St. Patrick's Day and maybe the Leprechaun will leave treats in the box.

Here it is with the gold coins inside the door.  I couldn't find the chocolate coins anywhere so I got a kids cash register set from the dollar store and the coins were not gold enough so I sacrificed and got a Ferrero Rocher and wrapped the coins in the gold foil.  Now I don't have to worry about the chocolate drawing vermin and/or melting.

Homemade flourish bling

I saw a video on You Tube where a lady used her glue gun to make a design and then added rhinestones to the glue and reheated it with her heat tool to get the glue squishy again to set the stones.  I tried, I used flat back pearls.  I printed a flourish design, put it behind some parchment paper and applied glue.  I have a precision tip glue gun somewhere but can't find it.  I think it would work much better with the precision tip glue gun.  I am going to fine my glue gun and try this again.  I have a ton of flat back pearls and rhinestones to play with.

Button Flowers

Button flowers.  I saw this on Pinterest and fell in love.  I put 5 buttons in a circle, dropped a glob of hot glue in the center and popped another button on top.  Super easy and super cute.  Can't wait to add them to a project.

Layouts for a friend

I donated a scrapbook for a fund raiser auction for my church.  A friend of mine won the auction and these are the first three layouts I made for her.  I sure hope she likes them with I give her the album.

Boss Birthday Card

Made this card for my boss' birthday and yes, I still have my job. 

Lamb Candy dispenser

I got this cut file from the Silhouette Online Store and am making them for the kids in our church for Easter.  The belly & feet pull out to reveal the drawer full of candy or whatever.  I think they are adorable.

New Years Eve

This is a layout I did of my daughter and her friends celebrating the ball dropping on New Years Eve with sparkling cider.  I used mostly the Celebrate kit from Scraptastic with some tags and sequins from my stash.  Also, the title "and the Ball Drops" is from the Silhouette online store.  I created the Times Square ball by printing the colored shapes on velum but they were not "enough" so I went over each of them with Stickles.  The stickles warped the velum but it gave it dimension so I was okay with it.  I created the background to the ball and glued the glitter ball on top.

The layout was for a sketch challenge on the scrap-a-holics anonymous yahoo group.  No, I didn't win but the winning layout was totally amazing!

Hope you enjoyed this layout.  Leave me a comment.

Thanks and scrap your happy little heart out.
