Yo Ho Ho! Pirates Treasure Chest

Hi crafty friends!
Happy Thursday!

There is a fun challenge going on over at Die Cuttin Divas in honor
of Pirate Day so I thought it would be fun to play along.

I decided to make a little treasure chest filled with some candy.

My skull and crossbones has some fun red "ruby" eyes.

On the top of my box, I added some pirate lingo  :) 

What's a treasure chest without some loot?
 This loot just happens to be candy lol

I think these would be so cute as some party favors or even for Halloween.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and taking a look at my latest creation.
I really appreciate it!

I hope you have a great crafty day!

My Creative Time: Tag It Tuesday

Hi there and Happy Tuesday!!

Today over at the My Creative Time blog, it is Tag It Tuesday!
We will be showing you tags that use the following picture for our inspiration.


Here is the tag that I made based on the photo:


I loved the party scene that is in the photo as well as those gorgeous colors, so that's what I decided to use for my inspiration on my tag today. I used the Tag Dies and the Tag Die Layers for my tag base. Before I adhered them together, I embossed my white top layer of my tag. I then used the Stitched Party Dies for my banner and balloons. I used the Happy Birthday from the Gift Card Sentiments and stamped that onto an oval I cut out using the Stitched Oval Die then heat embossed it with some silver embossing powder. I added a few pieces of bling and some cording for the balloons to finish it off. 

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today and taking a look at my latest creation!

Birthday Sundae

Hi crafty friends and happy Monday!
I hope your weekend was fabulous!!

Today I would like to share with you a card that I made using that awesome sundae that is in the Yummy Treats set by KaDoodle Bug Designs.


I used some pink glitter cardstock for my strawberry layer and then added some wink of stella clear glitter to my vanilla and chocolate layers to give them some sparkle as well. I added that fun sentiment from the More Of My Favorite Sayings stamp set onto a banner from the Trio Stitched Banners (both sets are from My Creative Time) and popped it up with some foam adhesive. 

I am entering this card into the current challenge that is going on at

Spooky Purse

Happy Thursday crafty friends!!

Guess what?? I pulled out my Cricut the other day and actually used it!!
It feels like forever since I have actually used it and after using it, I realized how much I missed it. I definitely think I am going to have to use it more often.

I decided to make a little purse so that I could play along with the challenge over at 

I decided to use one of the purses that is on the Artiste cartridge and turn it into a purse that is perfect for Halloween :) 


I cut my purse out of some purple cardstock and then my pocket on the front out of some houndstooth patterned paper. My Spooky as well as that adorable little ghost came from the Stitched Spooky Ghost Dies from My Creative Time. That cute little face came from the Christmas In July Face Assortment (PK-1410) from Peachy Keen. I filled the inside of my purse with some sweet candy treats. I think the pocket would be cute with a thin candy bar inside it as well. 

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by my blog to see my latest creation!
I really appreciate it!

I hope you have a great crafty day!
