ATTITUDE Really????


Hi everyone,

Last night I kept trying to do a layout that I was determined to do but just couldn't get into it.
I came across these pics of my granddaughter giving her parents "those" looks. You know the looks if you have children and I just could not resist scraping them. It is amazing how fast a layout can come to you with just the right pics!!

The words are all cricut cuts from Forever Young and Cuttin Up

Papers are 3 bugs in a rug
Flowers Prima
Cardstock Papertrey.

Hope everyone has a wonderful day!!

Hummingbird Valentine


Hi everyone! I spent some time today working on a Valentine for my Mom. We share the love for Hummingbirds. We both have feeders out year round and have hummingbirds that do come visit it all winter long. In this project I used:


Kaiser Craft English Rose Collection

Card stock is Papertrey

Flower is Prima
The lace is Prima


The hummingbird is a Cricut Cut from Lyrical Letters
The Valentines cut is also from a cricut cartridge Love Struck 2010


I first cut it out on Clear Craft Plastic and used Stickles glitter glue to do the outline. Then I cut it again on the Kaiser Craft English Rose Paper and attached the 2 pieces.

I learned the clear plastic trick from Anne at PaperPatch crafts on a tutorial on her blog.

I attached the hummingbird with 3D glue dots to the card .

It was fun to do and I hope everyone likes it :)

Happy Scraping

Hooked on you


Hi everyone! I spent a little time today working on the hubbys valentine card. Nothing fancy but it was fun and fits him to a tee!! The printed papers are all Kaisercraft love notes and after five collections and are available at Paper Patch Crafts. The lace heart I purchased at Michaels and used pink embroidery thread to stitch the pink outline. The diecuts were made on my Cricut using

Boys will be boys and Base Camp.

Now I am off to create a valentine for my beautiful granddaughter!!


Happy scraping!

Love is Friendship Set on Fire Card


Hi everyone. This valentine is the last one I made using KaiserCraft Love Notes and After Five lines from paperPatch Crafts.

The birds, Tag, rub on, and envelope are all available in Annes store as well as the printed papers.

The lips are a diecut from the Cricut Love Struck cartridge and the Scrolls are from the Home Decor cartridge. The card stock is PaperTrey Ink. Paper Trey cardstock is really heavy and great quality. The best that I have seen on the market! I really wanted a legs diecut to use on this card also to spice it up but could not find one anywhere. If you know where to find one let me know!!

It is back to work for me tomorrow so I hope everyone has a wonderful week! Share the blog Candy link on my blog with your crafty friends for another chance to win the Blog Candy I have posted!!

Inventory is a bad word!!

Hi ladies... I will have to put off the next blog candy until the week of the 10th. We are getting started on inventory at work and I will be working nights and trying to survive through the whole thing. It is not fun I would much rather build my blog and be creative but unfortunately if I want to play I have to work :) I will post any projects I have time to work on. I have some Valentines to make for Anne at PP Crafts with the wonderful design team items she sent to me. You saw a little taste of those products in the blog candy last week!! I hope everyone has a wonderful week... I recieved my gypsy today and it came in a bundle with 2 cartridges I already own. They are not in Blister Packs but they are new and you can register them of course because I haven't and won't be using them. So I am thinking maybe Cricut Sampler and Office Help as Blog Candy... What do all of you think???
Happy Crafting!!

Congrats Janet!! Send me your info to
bathncandles@msn.com so I can have Anne get that sent to you!!


Thanks everyone!! I will be doing this again in the next week so please check back!!

So there is no confusion the next time I am not Paper Patch Crafts. I am an Admin for Anne and I am one of her design team members. For some reason facebook does not allow us to have seperate pics on our posts and that is confusing for people and when I uploaded the post for some reason my name did not follow. I appreciate the support and I am not done playing so please check back later this next week for more BLOG CANDY!!!
