To go Along with Kim's cake.....

It is my boss' birthday and Kim made him a coin cake because he is an avid coin collector. I made him this birthday card because he likes the outdoors and hunting too, but he really liked the cake best. GOOD JOB KIMMY!!

Quarter Cake

Ashley challenged me... Can you make a coin cake she asks.  eeekk.  I was worried but it turned out good.  And since our boss carted it around and showed it to everyone I think he was happy with it too!

Ashley's Back!

I know it may seem that Kimmy has taken us over, but I am still here and been working a few things here and there. Kimmy has been very busy lately and I for one am proud of her work and don't mind looking at them all day long! As a matter of fact, my first project I will share is a picture book of some of her creations that I made for our church's fall festival.

The next project I have been working on is one with my new toy! I purchased a Bind it All, and it is soooo my new favorite thing. I made a 3 1/4 x 3 1/4 little note bad for my husband to keep in his pocket while he does one of his many projects. His only requirement was that it looked manly, what do you think??
And finally, I had to share my halloween craft I did the other day. Nothing fancy but I saw a youtube video on it and tried it out. I thought it came out ok.

Thanks for checking in, and I promise I wont stay gone so long this time!!

Lilly's 8th birthday cake

So we braved the Hurricane and had her party at her Gymnastics place.  The cake could have been better but considering the rain and the fact that I lost power before I could finish cricuting I think we did good!  The kids had fun and everyone made it home safely before the crazy hurricane winds started.

Paper Rose Wreath

So I decided what to do with the paper roses I have been messing around with. One thing i did discover is that the thinner paper is harder to work with, but not to shabby I must say

Paper Roses

As I was looking thru you-tube for new techinques to learn (I am totally self taught and could always learn more) I came across this video from DCWV paper and they made these amazing paper roses from the Immortal Love paper stack (which I adore). I tried it and it didnt turn out to bad. Much easier than I thought.
Here is the link if you want to try it.

I Gotta new toy!!!

so, today I got my new YourStory binding machine, so of course I had to try it out! I decided my first project that i would would be for me. I have this habit of finding recipes on line and printing them off and then have the papers flop all over my kitchen, so I used one of the 4x6 your story folder and made me a little recipe book. I embossed the top and jazzed it up a bit. hop you like it!!!
