Let's Go "GLAMPING" !!

Okay, my dear dear friend, Becky is turning the big "60"! So I asked her what kind of party she wanted, and it didn't surprise me that she wanted a girls camping trip. So, of course it wouldn't be a camping trip without GLAM or BLING right? I made a GLAMPERS survival kit for each gal. This was a fun a really inexpensive project. Only $20 for everything you see here! I went to Dollar tree and got flashlights (made GLAM GLOW tags for them) and then I covered shampoos and conditioners that were free from past hotel stays and labeled them with "Glam Sham and Glam Shine"- also covered soap and called it "GLOAP" (yes, that means Glammer soap!) The covered water bottles will have candy to stuffed in them. Lastly, a glammer gal can't go camping without WET WIPES, so I covered them with tissue and a fun boa and called it Glam Rags. I can't wait for the party!!

SPoOky Banner with Moonlight

I have never tackled a banner before, and since I am WAAAY into Halloween, this one will get plenty of use! I used old sheet music to cut the the pinwheels on my Cricut and cut spooky characters with the EEK button on the Artiste.


I spent the afternoon playing with my Cricut addictive! I made the swing cards (so easy and adds quick dimension to a boring old card) from page 52- and created them at 6 1/4". The OWL card is made from the image on page 76 all at 4". I stamped WHOO LOVES YOU on the inside. I definitely got a jump on my Halloween cards today. So much fun!

Christmas cards with a few scraps and buttons

I often have JUST a few little scraps of a favorite paper pack and love to use them for a card. These cards were made with the LAST scraps I had of the new Pear and Partridge paper and the ornament one is made with a few buttons. I saw a few cards similiar on Pinterest, and it inspired me to put together a couple of cards.
