Project Video - Fishing Box Card....with some issues!

Hey guys! I know, finally a project video and I am mighty proud! I did have a few issues with the card as you can tell in the video. Patterned paper that has to be going one way....ugh!! The paper was perfect for the card though and that is all that matters.

Happy Crafting :)

Project Share - Graduation Goodie Bags

Hey guys! As you can tell my videos are running behind, all because of my hauls!!! Oh well :)

I wanted to share with you some goodie bags I made. And because it is a late night video you get a little life advice too! Although, I'm in a strange mood, so I don't know....

Without further adieu:

Wilton Congrats Graduation bags
Silhouette Cameo
Silhouette Online Store - Jumping Grad - Male - #9828
Cardstock - Georgia Pacific (white); Recollections (black)
Adhesive - Xyron 1.5" Sticker Maker, ATG
And candy, lots and lots of candy!!!!!

I heard from the boys the next night at Senior Banquet. I was right, they sucked down the candy that day. They were all so grateful and told me they LOVED them. It warmed my heart. My son's friends are the sweetest ever :)

I am obsessed with that jumping graduate, you will see him in more projects!

I will have more graduation stuff coming up and a Father's Day card also. Lots of new project videos are upcoming. I am working on a project with the requests I have gotten. I will be working on a Graduation album with my Your Story and some of Heidi Swapp ephemera that I picked up in a haul.

Thanks so much for watching!!

Jo-Ann's Birthday Haul & DIY Enamel Dots

Hey guys!! I have another haul to share with you. Jo-Ann's sent me a postcard worth 20% off my total purchase! Of course, I had to use it. I got really lucky as the clerk put the coupon back in my bag the first day. I had to go back and use it again, right?!? The second clerk tore it up, but I got my use out of it :)

If you guys have any suggestions for projects or cards you would like to see please let me know. I am currently working on one with the Your Story covers.

If anyone is interested I have DIY Enamel Dots for sale.

On the left are glitter dots, middle are just plain and the right are striped.

It is $2.50 for 25, that includes shipping. Contact me at my email if you are interested.

Thanks for watching!!

Project Share - Box Card, Note Card & Canvas

Hey guys! You won't believe it, I have a project to share with you today!! Actually, three!! I will warn you, I did this video at like one in the morning so, not really with it so much. I was REALLY tired so I kind of blab on and on...

Supply List
Cardstock: Black, Orange, Kraft - Recollections
Patterned Paper: Fall Glitter Stack - DCWV, MME
Silhouette Cameo
Silhouette Online Store: Basketball Box Card by Lori Whitlock - Design ID: 60659 ; Teach Encourage Mentor Inspire - Vinyl Phrase by Kolette Hall - Design ID: 47047
Adhesive: Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive; Scor-Tape
Font: Freshman -
Paint: Black Cauldron, Orange
White Hem Tape
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black Ink

I was not overly happy about how the canvas came out, but my son's teacher loved it! I have an OCD problem where I want everything to be perfect. And, I will be honest, if I had time to re-do it I would have. One of the cons of waiting to the last minute. I usually do a lot better with inspiration at the last minute.

I've been using vinyl, but think I might try using the stencil material and see if it comes out better that way.

Thanks for watching!!

Haul From 5 Different Stores

Hey guys! I know your SHOCKED, but I have ANOTHER haul video!!

I am a little sad today. My son's last day of high school is today. He starts marching practice tomorrow, banquet night on Thursday, Prom on Friday and Graduation on Sunday. My mom and I are working Project Graduation. I am really excited for the experience, but sad to see it come because it means one door is closing. Lucky for me, there is a wonderful door opening when Ry goes to college and I am VERY excited to watch that journey begin.
