August 30, 2011 Cuttlebug Acetate Key Ring Template

Good evening everyone!!!
I had enough plastic to make some sample templates for a little key ring.
First of all, I am sure what I did voids any warranty. lol jk
In other words...you may want to use an old punch.
I have the punch I used in one of the pictures. It cut through the thin plastic I had. 
I used most (I didn't have enough plastic) of the embossing folders that I have to make sample templates.
I used the crop-a-dile to punch a hole in the plastic pieces. I love that thing.....you can even punch holes in wooden popsicle sticks!!!:0)
I am going to use this as a sample to see which embossing folder I want to use on a project.:0)

August 29, 2011 Composition Notebook -Redo-

Good Morning!!!
I started working on a composition notebook this past weekend for my son's teacher.
This is what I came up with...


I found some composition notebooks at Target last week for $.40.
I picked up four notebooks to bling up a bit.
I am still working on the other three, I hope to post them this week.

Instructions:
For front and back of book: apply light layer of Mod Podge glue, place precut cardstock to notebook.
Once dry, cut excess paper (if there is any).
Apply a light layer of Mod Podge on both sides of notebook. This makes the notebook a little more sturdy.
Once both sides are dry, embelishments are added.
I ran the ribbon thru the xyron sticker maker and it applied to the composition notebook without a problem. I placed a ribbon on both sides of the notebook.
The acetate was run thru the cuttlebug. I used a glue pen (ZIG) on the areas where the die was pronounced, then added MS glitter.

Hope you all are having a great day:0)

edit note...anyone notice I kept writing Modge Podge? Where did I get that from...and did I write that in all my posts? lol

August 24, 2011 Simple Dog Card

Hello!
Last night I went to Joann's and found this cute EK paw border punch. I thought, if anything, I could use it on a notecard during Teacher Appreciation. 
This is what I used to create the simple dog card.
All plain cardstock (old) SU.
The plaid cardstock is from DCWV Pet Stack. The ribbon is from Michael's.
I think the dog needs a litle stiching and maybe I can find a cute sentiment for the tag. .... this is what I have so far:0)
Have a great day!

August 11, 2011 Cuttlebug Tip

Good morning!
I started on a craft this morning and could not figure out what Cuttlebug embossing folder I wanted to use.
I used a (recycled) piece of acetate  (plastic cover) and ran it through the Cuttlebug and this is what I came up with. I think I am going to do this with all my folders so I can use the same concept later.
Have a great day!

August 9, 2011 Birthday and Snail Mail Card

Here are three cards I made yesterday (and forgot to post...oops!).
All solid cardstock is from (old) SU. The plaid cardstock is from DCWV -Animal Crackers (cute-huh?).
With the oval lace card and the scallop circle card I used Lacey Labels, I welded the shapes together with the gypsy. I am going to have to go back and find where I got the "postage stamp" shape from. With the two birthday cards I ran the sentiment through the cuttlebug. On the blue card, the top (clear, plastic)  is acetate from the cricut box. I had no idea you could run plastic through the cuttlebug.:0) The little snail is from Create a Critter.


Have a great day!
