Santa's Helpful Elves & Skating Christmas Cardinal Magnets

Hi there my crafty friends!
I've been busy making these adorable 6" Christmas magnets. See my
older post on how these are put together using strong magnets here

This cute little elf is from the "Santa's Helpful Elves kit"
You can get the Whole kit below

Adorable collection!

This is a close up of the embossing on his hat. The picture really doesn't do it justice. 
He looks soooo cute!

I love how the hat  flaps over his face.

This is the cute skating cardinal from the " Merry & Bright kit.
You can get the whole kit below.
When you purchase two kits you will get this New Christmas Box Cards kit FREE

This is a closeup of the embossing. I actually stamp them with the embossing ink and put clean
embossing powder and heat set it. So, they are all shiny in real life. So cool! I really haven't used 
much of my embossing things, but now I think I will be having fun with it.

I sure wish I had a crafting buddy close by to enjoy making all these wonderful creations.
Say, if you live close to Apple Valley, CA, drop me a line. Yes I know, where in the world
is Apple Valley LOL  I'm in the high desert and would love to hear from you.

I think these darling magnets are going to be a hit at Christmas.
 Great to place on top of all your presents.  
Also a great gift for teachers or to give out at the office, bank or special friends.

Here's one of  Leo & Mary's FREE  Toy Soldier box svg

Isn't he the Cutest!

That's it for another day my friends.
Have a wonderful week!

Hello Kitty Christmas Refrigerator Magnets

Hi crafty friends! 
Today I have these adorable Hello Kitty magnet to share with you.
Are you ready for Christmas? Well, everybody seems to be getting ready
and I couldn't resist making these darling Hello Kitty magnets.

Last week had a blog hop and gave away a lot
of Free Hello Kitty cutting files. I just had to make a few into magnets.

Isn't she darling, all ready for baking and to delight someone special on your list!
To begin, I resized her to approximately 6" tall. Then in eCal I put all the pieces together to
form the Kitty. Next, I made a shadow image around her for the base of my magnet. I cut
2 shadow layers out of white poster board and glued them together. Next, I cut 2 more shadow layers in black and glued
them together. You should have four layers glued. Then, your ready to ink and glue each piece in order until she is all finished. Add your details with black or white gel pens and some glitter or bow and she's done and ready for the magnet.
I then turn her over and glue a super strong magnet to the back. 
With all the layers glued together, she is super strong like chipboard and ready to place on someone's
fridge or on a gift box and even in a page layout.

I glued an extra strength round magnet on the back, so it will have a firm grip when
you place it on a fridge. You can use most any type magnet in strips etc. I find that
the extra strength works the best for me.

I bought these at Joann's for around 2.99 a pack. If you find them for less, please let me know. Thanks

This little guy would also make a wonderful magnet and he's Free
over at

You can get the Free file below

That's it my friends for another day.
I hope that I've inspired you today with these darling Hello Kitty magnets. You can view 
more magnets in my older posts.
You can make most any piecing design into a magnet and it's so fun and easy.
Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day.

Parkside Row 3D Houses

Hello my dear friends.
I couldn't wait to share these adorable Victorian 3D houses with you. 
Another First Class kit from
See the link below.

This is the first house I made and of course I had to make it in my favorite color, burgundy and  white. I love
how it turned out. At first I thought it would be hard to make, but to my surprise, it
was so easy with Mary's step by step instructions. All of Mary's files are like putting
a puzzle together. Each piece fits perfectly into place. The top roof comes
off to place a tea light inside that glows at night. Great gift box and conversation keepsake also.

This is my third house that I made with the cute kitty sitting upstairs.
 I used Mary's
free tulip svg for accents. I Love these houses!

You can get the Tulip svg below

This was the second house that I made in bright yellow. Do you notice any difference in the two?
Well, if you look closely, you will see that on the white trim above the stairs, I glued the accent
trim on backwards. lol  You really can't notice it though. I can't begin to tell you how many
times I do that. if I'm not paying attention. LOL  I multi task :)

Mary's houses are adorable! I would love to make a blue one next and then maybe, just maybe
make a green one. They are so unique and adorable and really fun to make.

This is the whole kit that you can get Free with purchase.
Don't pass this one up!

Good Day at the Office 3D Typewriter

Isn't this just the cutest!
I remember when I had a turquoise typewriter like this one. So cool!
And, the top comes off so you can place lots of  goodies or special gift inside. 
What a unique gift to give someone.

This is another amazing kit from Leo and Mary's svgcuts. You can see
the link below.

The butterfly and flowers are so pretty.

The typewriter letters are all one piece and so easy to place on the typewriter.

I love how my typewriter came out. The papers that I used are DCWV Tajmahal stack from
Joann's. Beautiful papers!

I love Mary's pretty typewriter.

Call Me Later Fancy 3D Phone Box

Hello my friends!
Can you believe this phone is made of paper? Yes, Mary has created yet another
fabulous kit. I cut this using my Eclips cutting machine and embellished with pearls and ribbons.

The burgundy flower is paper and included in the kit.

This is the phone shown open. Plenty of room for a special gift.
The base of the phone is all cut in poster board and is very sturdy.
You can pick some up at the 99 cent store or dollar store and even Joann's.

I finished the hand piece with one of the circles included in the kit and pocked a few holes
and glued it over the opening. I think it turned out quite nice.

This is the back view. I love this beautiful paper. I bought it at Joann's. It's from the DCWV
Botanicals stack and it was on sale for $6.00 for 48 sheets. Great deal!

This is one of many phone boxes that I will be making. 
So fun and easy to follow Mary's tutorials.
Check out my dresser from this kit below

That's it for another day my friends.

I hope that I've inspired you today.

Watermelon Melon Bears Piecing Magnets

Hi again!
I just had to share these cute summer bears with you today.
I made them into refrigerator magnets. They are piecing, meaning
I pieced each piece onto a black silhouette and glued a magnet to
the back.
They measure approximately 6" tall and have many layers to
make them very sturdy.
They are from KaDoodleBug. See the link below.

Isn't she just sooo sweet!

Too cute!

She stands almost 6" tall and looks great on a fridge, package or scrapbook page.

I purchased the Melon Bears awhile back and can't seem to find them on KaDoodleBugs site.

I did find another cute watermelon girl bear. She has lots of darling cutting files.

That's it folks!
I hope that I've inspired you once again.'
Have a great week!

Vintage Rose Card or Magnet

Hello my crafty friends!
I hope everyone is having a fun weekend with family and friends.

Today I made this lovely Vintage rose layered card and envelope.
I glued each layer instead of using pop dots. I think the next one
I will try a few pop dots to raise each layer a bit.
Beautiful card for someone special.

This can also be made into a refrigerator magnet.
Check out the kit below from Mary and Leo.
