Poinsettia Paper Clock

Hello again my friends!
I just had to make One more Christmas clock with these pretty Poinsettia's to 
share with you today.
I used the Tattered Lace Poinsettia and Mary's clock face and numbers from the Maison de Madeline kit. 

I bought the clock parts from site. They have a wonderful collection of clock parts
and motors. They are so easy to assemble. I'm officially called the Clock lady! LOL
Oh did I say that I must have at least 3 clocks in every room. I Love the sounds of beautiful clocks!

When my son comes to visit overnight with his family, he takes all the batteries and shuts them all down so he can get a good nights sleep. Haha 

I inked and pop dotted each poinsettia to the green base and added some leaves all around it.
I think I will use this for my Christmas class at the the clubhouse. 
That's it for Christmas and now on to SPRINGY things! LOL

Have a wonderful weekend and happy crafting!

"Tea for You and Me" Teapot - Pedestal - Butterflies

Hello again my crafty friends!
I have this so so pretty Teapot to share with you today. And, it's sitting on this oh so darling pedestal with
delicate butterflies all around.
This was a fun project to make and so easy to do. This was created using my Sizzix Eclips laser cutting machine. Did I say that it cuts just like butter and I simply Love my machine!
I really love the way this darling creation turned out and so did Grace over at the Aspen Clubhouse. So, it's in their display window along with a lot of
my other creations for everyone to enjoy. 

 This gorgeous Teapot is from Mary's "Tea for You and Me" kit below.

The Butterflies are so delicate and pretty. I'm going to add a little glitter to finished them, but I think they look
just fine as they are. Sooooo pretty!

The exquisite butterflies are from Mary's "Breeze Meadow Butterflies" kit below.

This is the darling Pedestal from Mary's "Poplar Street Tulips " kit below.

I added a little gold rick rack to each piece to give it that finished touch.
Another great project for that special someone on your list.

That's it for today my friends!
I hope that I've inspired you to start crafting.

Breezy Meadow Butterfly Easel Card

 I just had to pop in to share this lovely Butterfly easel card with you today.
  I love how it turned out!
I've seen so many easel cards out there and finally decided to try and make one.
I used one of Mary's Butterflies from her kit
 "Breeze Meadow Butterflies"
I love the Whole kit! Beautiful Butterflies!
Get the kit below.

This is a side view showing how it looks when it's open. It folds up nicely to fit in an envelope. 
It's so fun to make easel cards! Just weld and fold and you have a beautiful card.

The cutout  sentiment was a Surprise Free svg file  
"Winter Layers" from KaDoodleBug Designs

I had finished my Butterfly card and needed something inside and I took a brake and went to my facebook site and low and behold this beautiful swirled sentiment popped up in front of me LOL
 It was Perfect for my insert! Thanks Mellissa!
I stamped it with the Love heart from Fiskars stamps.
 I don't have that many stamps, but this one worked nicely.

Remember awhile back I mentioned getting the We are memory keepers punch board?
Well, I simply Love Love that board! I made this matching envelope in less than a few mins and then I glitter a small butterfly for the seal. 

So much fun!

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

Valentine's Valentine's Valentine's Piecing Magnets

Hello again my crafty friends. Hope everyone had a wonderful Holiday with family and friends.
I'm ready for the New Year to begin! Are you?????
I'm getting a heads start on Valentines day creations!

First up is this adorable Valentine kitten. I printed the little saying on the white card by hand, 
but I think I'll look for something that I can print out or glue on. 
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

She was so easy and quick to make and the best thing  she was a FREE svg from  EinneJ 

EinneJ has Lots' of Free cutting files. Enjoy!

While searching on the craiglist I found this amazing 12x12 paper organizer. 
 I'm soooo happy I can display all my pretty papers!
I just had to  put it in my office instead of my craft room :) 
 It fits nicely next to my Sizzix Eclips machine and student computer.
 I love bright colors and I Love Lucy. LOL

Isn't he just the curtest magnet!
I found him while searching on google here and added a heart. I pieced to a black silhouette and added a magnet to the back. I doubled each layer for added strength. Again, I would like to find a nice font to cut out for the Bee Mine. You can find the Free coloring page below

Next up is this so so cute Snoopy holding a valentine with his tongue. LOL
He was really easy to piece together and makes a darling fridge magnet or on a file cabinet.
 Personal use only.
So cute!

Next up is this darling Scottie dog. I pieced him on a white silhouette and added a Valentine on his mouth. I used several pieces of heavy card stock to make him sturdy and then added a magnet strip to the back.
Great on a fridge or anything metal. You can find a similar Welcome design in all metal here

That's it for another day my friends.
I hope that I've inspired you to start up your crafting again.
My house is a Showcase of all my creations!
I't soooo much fun!

Have a wonderful week and keep watching as I get back to crafting some New creations.
