 kikki-k planner pages

I am playing catch-up with posting planner pages for the month of February. Below you will see a few pages I created for my Kikki-k planner. 
The washi tape is from Joann's and Michael's. The stickers are from HL.

 The washi tape is from the Target dollar bin and Joann's The stickers I found on the military base in Albuquerque. I created the heart with washi tape and a paper punch.
 The washi tape is from Michael's and the sticker I found at a Wal-mart in Albuquerque. I created the grass border using a paper punch and washi tape.
The washi tape is from Michael's. I used an EK Success paper punch and washi tape to create the banner. 

Have a great weekend everyone!

Polymer Charms for a Notebook
February 20, 2015

Good morning!
I found a cute notebook at Walmart a few weeks ago and decided to jazz it up a bit. The tag (Today was a very good day) on the front of the notebook is a card from WeRMemory Keepers note card for scrapbooking. Washi tape was placed on the top and bottom to secure the card. The cute stickers are from HL (Hobby Lobby). I also attached two charms I made (donut and palette) to a Tim Holtz key chain and attached it to my notebook.
Have a great day!

Polymer Clay Charms

Good morning!
Last Summer I purchased the book Clay Charms by KLUTZ. I found a copy at Joann's and used the 50% off coupon, I think the final price was around $11. This is a great book for a beginner crafter that does not have the tools and ingredients for creating clay charms. Inside the book is a variety of clay, eye pins, glaze, a detailed book....etc etc. Last night my kids and I used the Sculpey Mold Maker to create cupcake molds. This is a cheaper version of the Amazing Mold Putty. We each made our own cupcake mold, above you can see the cupcake I made using the mold. I found a few videos on youtube about creating molds for polymer clay. I purchased a little bag of mini-Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and used a cup to create my cupcake mold. I am going to try other items to try and create an even smaller cupcake mold in the future.

Happy Valentine's Day container
January 28, 2015

Good morning!
Here is a picture of a craft I just made.
I purchased a light blue container at HL (Hobby Lobby) yesterday. The original price was $2.99, I am pretty sure the Spring collection (where the container is from) is 50% off. The pink and purple vinyl is the HL brand I purchased a couple years ago. 
Here are the specifics on the vinyl:
cartridge: Create a Critter 2 page 33
Happy Valentine's Day (5.708x3.569) 
size of pink vinyl needed 4 1/2 x 6 1/2)
Valentine's (5.75 x 1.458)
size of purple vinyl needed 2 x 6 1/2

I am sending this to school with my daughter to tote her Valentines in an leaving it for her teacher to keep.

Let me know if you have any questions or comments.
Have a great day!:0)
