Happy Birthday June Bug

Hello My Creative Friends!  Well, I finally finished making my little nephew a sight word book for his 4th birthday.  His nick name is JuneBug...Hence, the title of this book.....His party is this coming Sunday and man was I worried I wouldn't get it finished!  But, I did!  Yay! :)  So proud of myself. hehehehe  So here it is......I just love how it turned out! :)  I hope this little book helps him learn all his sight words before Kindergarten next year.  He is such a smart cookie, he probably doesn't even need this book.  But I know he'll have fun looking at his pictures. :)  ARGGGGG!  He is all into pirates right now! :)  Hope he likes it!

And the Materials I used to make this project are in the pic below.  Thank you My Creative Time.....    for all the wonderful products!  Miss Emma, your stamps are the bomb!!!!  I love all your dies and stamps!!!

Grace Jam Thank You Gift Cards

Hello, My Creative Friends!!!  I made these cutie patootie Gift Card Holders for all the camp counselors and other volunteers at our Kidz Camp at New Creation Church.  We had such a blast and I wanted each of the grown up volunteers to know how much I appreciate their dedication to our kids and helping them learn about Jesus this summer in such a fun way!  I so enjoyed getting to know each of them and really didn't know any of them prior to this experience.  So I am feeling extra blessed!  Hoping these little gifts to a local Frozen Yogurt place, blesses them just enough to remind them that they were a SUPER BIG BLESSING TO ME!
I used My Creative Time's Gift Card Holder Die, MCT Scallop and Stitched Circle Die, and Gift Card Sentiments Stamp Set.  I used transparent brown ribbon from my stash and yellow buttons from the dollar bin at Michaels.  The Grace Jam logo was printed and cut with my Silhouette machine matching our Camp Theme! :)  So fun!  MIGHTY MIGHTY GRACE JAM!!!

Designer Challenge- MCT

Hello My Creative Friends!  So, I made this long overdue card for my neighbors who are so awesome!  They let me borrow their pie pan a few weeks ago and I still haven't thanked them for it!  Ughhhh, I hate being this late on thank you's!!!  But, better late than never!  I also needed to thank them for giving me some old Stampin Up Stamps for FREE from their sister who was cleaning things out.  Oh, and I owe them for oil......the list goes on and on.  These two ladies deserve a MILLION THANK YOU's!!!!  Well, can see what I used to make it below.  I sure had fun making this card.  I hope they enjoy it as much as I appreciate all of their awesomeness!!!!

Baseball Coach Thank You's

Hello My Creative Friends!!!  I made these cards for our baseball coaches this year!  I used digital files to cut out the Baseball Nut and the Bear.  The Nut and bear are from  The Stamp set that says Little League Baseball is from My Creative Time's Grand Slam Stamp Set.  I used the Pok a Dot Embossing folder to emboss the plain red paper.  Added a bit of white ribbon from my stash and a few jewels for some added bling. :)  I think they turned out soooo cute!!!  All our team parents were able to sign the inside.  Just had to share. :)

Treat Slider Box

Hello, my creative Friends!  I made this cute little treat slider box for a friend as a thank you for my birthday presents from her.  She loves Lemon Heads, so I filled her lil box with Lemon heads.  I used the Summer Pack of 6 x 6 paper with flip flops since my friend wears flip flops most of the time. :)  Then I used My Creative Time's Many Greetings stamp set for the sentiment.  The little flip flops  were stamped with My Creative Time's All around Everything Accessories stamp set.  Then to add a bit of bling, I used my Wink of Stella Markers to trace the flip flops and part of the sentiment.  She really did make my heart smile when she purchased the Treat Slider Box Die for me for my birthday!  I've been wanting this die for over a year!!!!  I had to show her that I really will use it!!!! :)  Have a great day, my Creative Friends!!!  I know I'm having fun using my new die!!!!

Happy Birthday

Hello my creative friends!  I made this cute little birthday card with My Creative Times Tag Die Layers.  The Happy B-Day letters were part of the dies in that set.  I stickled them all up! :)  The flower embossing folder was a gift from my sweet friend, Jessica Flynn!  Thank you Jessica!!!  I love it.  Then I tried a new technique I learned from my friend, Jo Ralph, putting ink on top of the embossed parts of the card with my finger dabber.  I think it turned out soooo cute for being such a simple card!  I love it!!!  I placed it on top of my sweet little friends birthday present!  Super cute! :)  Happy Crafting, my friends!
