"Thanks a Bunch!!"

Sorry about this picture, for some reason  I couldn't get it to turn up right

I found this idea in a scrapbook magaizine and decided to put my own twist on it.
I used Close to My Heart for the stamps
Martha Stewart Punch for the top of the pot
I used scraps of coordinating colors to make the flowers, I also used vellum
to accent the flowers I used a white a brown marker
I think it turned out super cute!!

Tip Time Tuesday

Tip Time Tueday...
Things I use in my scrap~room, that some people may think don't belong

#1 Baby Wipes~ I use them to clean up my desk after using stamps, or
glitter. I also use them to clean off my self-healing mat. I have used
them to clean off my stamps. And also to clean up my hands
after inking or using glue so I don't get it on my project where it does not belong.
#2 Lighter~ I use this for my ribbon and to distress paper. The way I use it 
on my ribbon is to keep it from fraying. I will light it and gently get it close just
enough so that my ribbon will not fray. Also I sometimes will burn the edges of a paper
to make it look distressed.

#3 Rectangle Nail File~ I use this mostly to distress my paper edges, but there 
has been time when I am working with wood that it will sand down rough edges.

#4 Plastic Putty Scraper~ I use it to gently remove large items off my cricut mat. 
When I have a large item I have cut out and it has lost of little pieces out of
it I notice it comes up better all at once. So I use the scrapper and it 
comes right up.

#5 Zip~Lock Bags~ I use these for putting in scraps, I found the really large
bags at the dollar store. It will fit 12x12 pages with room to spare. I sometimes will be
working on a project and get stuck and so I will put everything that goes with that project in it 
and store it for when I get inspired again.

and last but not least.... my dogs!
All of my dogs have thier own spots in my room, I love to be scrappin'
and be able to feel them with my toes under my desk. 
It is just not the same scrappin' with out them :)

I hope this gave you some ideas and tips on things you can use!

Please leave a comment either about something I suggested or leave a comment
about something you use, and we will be doing a random drawing
for a cricut cartridge.

Summer Time Challenge!

It is time for another challenge!!
The theme for this one is 

I hope all of you are having a fun, relaxing and amazing summer!
Summer time is a time for lots of things...
family reunions
and spending time outside!!

With all these things that happen all summer long I was trying to think of the one thing that is best about summer... and what I came up with isn't the best thing about summer, but it is one of my favorites.

At night after the kids are in bed, I take my kindle or a good book and make a drink and sit on the deck and enjoy the breeze and smells of summer. 
So my project was a "margaritaville" sign.

I used a wooden craft I found at the dollar store as the back, then I used an fun and bright animal print for the back ground. I used vellum for the glass and glitter paper for the drink. I used diamond dust on the rim of the glass to give it the salt look. I used my crop-a-dile punched 2 holes thru it and cut the letters out in vinyl. I used ink around the edges to make it look all black.
I hope you enjoyed my little sign and I hope the rest of your summer is great!

Blog candy for my site... leave a comment and the winner will receive a grab bag, I will pick the winner in one week!

Quick Tip Tuesday

Quick Tip Tuesday...Cleaning Up Your Craft Room!!

First of all I would like to introduce myself. Hi, this is Mollie. This is my first time doing a quick tip Tuesday so I hope you all enjoy.

Once a month my girl-friends and I have a crop day. We trade who's house we go to and we always watch chick flicks, have snacks and if we are lucky between all the gabbing we get some crafting done. After a  few times of doing this I got an idea... there are things in my craft room I NEVER use, maybe one of my girl-friends could use it. So we started a swap table. We set aside one table in the room that we put things we no longer want. Through out the day the gals look through it and some days the table ends up empty and other times it doesn't. We have found this is a really nice thing, because it encouraged some of us to clean out our rooms and actually look through all of our treasures. In a way I look at it as recycling because if I can't use it someone else can. So my tip for Tuesday is, look at what you have and if you know you aren't going to use it.... maybe your friends can.

Go to my DT website and let us know what tips you have for getting rid of some unwanted or unused scrapbooking supplies and you could win our "mystery prize''.

Just leave a comment with your tip on my DT website and she will choose a Random winner on our next Talk Time Tuesday to receive a scrapbooking surprise.
