Crafting Family day

Hi Everyone!

It is my day at Crafting Family.  I used up some more of the adorable My Mind's Eye paper good day sunshine that I used last week. I love that collection!  I got this cute image as a freebie,I have to find the site, it is bookmarked on the old computer and I have to hunt it down. I just printed it out and colored with some prismacolor pencils.  The finishing touches were twine, ink and glitter pen. 

I hope you have a great day :)

Crafting Family's twisted easel

Hi Everyone!
I hope you are having a great Wednesday. Today is my day at Crafting Family.
I wanted to try something different and I hope you like it.  It is a standard A2 card,but it is a twisted easel card.

The green cardstock is from DCWV from Crafting Family.  The patterned paper is My Mind's Eye, Good Day Sunshine collection, the paper is Sunny Stripes Paper, both sides. I made the card and then used my gypsy for the kite. I cut it 3 times and then pieces it all together. I used some stickles to glitter up the kite.  The yellow and orange twine are from K Andrew Designs, and so it the sentiment, it is from the Guy Talk set.  I added some buttons and it was done. I hope you head over and check out Crafting Family. We also have a challenge going on, make sure to enter for some great prizes.
Also check out the Ebay page for more great deals.

Kids Get Wild Blog Hop

Welcome to the "Kids go wild" Getting Cricky Blog Hop!!
Getting Cricky Blog Hop

We're so happy you could join us for this month's Getting Cricky Design Team Blog Hop!!

This month is about Kids going wild and having fun. :)

If you've hopped along from Patricia then you are in the right place!! If you are just joining me from your dashboard, or reading this via email, please be sure to CLICK HERE to start at the beginning with Kristal's blog (you'll want to catch up on all the FUN!!)...

Each of Kristal's stamp sets benefit charity. At least $1 per stamp set goes to benefit the charity noted on the stamp set package. Kristal is donating to the following charities: Cancer Angels, Storefront Shelter for Homeless Children, Intrepid & Fallen Heroes, E. Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation, Doorways Shelter for Women & Children (Domestic Violence), Wayside House for Women, Camp Good Days & Special Times, Adopt a Classroom, and Autism Research Institute. Kristal will donate $1 for every stamp set sold, retail or wholesale to the charity noted; and over time believes this will add up to some wonderful miracles for these special people. So you can feel good that each time you purchase a K Andrew Designs art stamp set, someone around the country is receiving some good help!

K Andrew's stamps are all made and assembled here in the USA, which is very important to Kristal. This ensures all product materials are safe and that jobs are being provided and maintained here in America. You can learn even more about Kristal's stamps (and pick some up for yourself) by visiting her online store: K Andrew Designs:

Kristal's stamp sets are perfect for cards, layouts, and so much more...

So without anymore

K Andrew Designs

We are both featuring the Guy Talk set.

Here is Princess Buttercup's project. She made this all be herself.  I layed it out on the Gypsy.  She assembled it all along and wouldn't let me help at all.


She picked the railroad conductor cause that is what Daddy is and she is giving this to him for Father's day.  She was hilarious. She was in my scrap container, and saying "hmmm...I think daddy needs a blue base...oooh and some polka dots...oh yeah and twine."  She is so funny to craft with. :) 

Here is my project..
I made a Father's day card the other day for my dad, but I changed my mind and that one is going to my father in law and this is for my dad.


It says You da man, Big papa.  I think my dad will laugh over it. :)

I am going to have some blog candy. One lucky follower will recieve 5 yards of twine in the 8 colors I own.  It is the fabulous twine from K Andrew Designs.

Your next stop is Christel :)

Have a great night!!

Featured project at Getting Cricky

Hi Everyone!

I have a cute project to share with you today. I am featured at Getting Cricky today. I used the Food for thought set for this.  I made this for Princess Buttercup's gym teacher.

I think it is adorable. There is even more inspiration and more of my projects on the Getting Cricky Blog.

I used the K Andrew Designs Twine, and wrapped it around an old starbucks bottle. I cut the mushroom for the Cindy Loo cartridge.  I filled the jar with candy and he loved it.

Make sure to head over and check out my other project and see you tomorrow for the monthly blog hop.

Have a great night!!

Crafting Family's #1 dad

Happy Wednesday!
If today is Wednesday then that means  it is my day to post for Crafting Family.
I wanted to make a Father's day card. I have to make more but I love how this turned out.

This is going to my Daddy. I hope he likes it.  The green paper is cardstock from Crafting Family, I embossed it with my dots folder.  The shirt is cut out of American Crafts paper, Junior Collection, Goal paper, both sides. Click here to order it from the ebay site. I used pop dots to pop up the collar of the shirt.  The sentiment is from K Andrew Designs, Guy Talk set.  I punched it out with a scallop die. i used some eyelets and twine to jazz it up.  I kept it fairly simple cause that is the kind of guy my dad is.
I am also entering this in some challenges.

My Craft spot project for dad 

Have a great rest of the week :)

End of the year teacher girft

Hi Everyone,
I wanted to share the gift we made for my daughter's teacher.  I did something simple, the card was inspired by the challenge at Die CuttinDivas.

 I used the lite cartridge slumber party for the cupcake.  I used scraps from my bing for everything except the base.  The sentiment comes from K Andrew Designs set Food for thought.
Princess Buttercup picked out the cake and frosting. It was  a big hit this morning. Her teacher loved it and said she was going to bake cupcakes this weekend :)
