My Hubbys birthday card

I find male cards to be one of the hardest to make. When I bought the G45 paper I was so excited because it is for males.

So with that being said I did some cutting and used my MS punch and other punches and had a good time making this card for my hubby's birthday in the month of August.

Hope you like it.

Be blessed and smiles always, Tammy

Tie Box

I found this template for a tie box quite a while back...i am sure if you look it up you will too.

It is small but could hold some candy or money. Great gift idea for a "male". I used TH paper and made a stamp. Pretty simple and neat looking if you ask me.


May God bless you all this week.

Butterfly card

Hello...I made this card a few days ago. I finally used my new Tim Holtz die butterfly. Okay so I made a little mishap and did not switch one of the wing sides by doing it upside down.oops... So I decided not to throw it away and turn it into a sideways butterfly. It turned out pretty cute though. I added a tag and some ribbon from my sweet friend Cindy over at Whimsical Musings.

Martha stewart butterfly punch for the inside of the card. I hope you like my pink card. I made this card for my mom "thank you" one. I needed an envelope so I decided to throw one together and it was quite simple and easy and looked cute too. Just wanted to share that.

Have a great weekend! Is summer over yet? I am usually the first one who loves to have my kids home for the summer. Now~this is a first time I am ready for school to start (shhhhh its a secret.) I thought it would be easier as they get older...I guess I was wrong. Getting Presten ready to go to UF and cleaning up all the boys rooms and moving beds around. Tomorrow I hope to go to JCPenney as I found a great coupon online. $10 off $25 or more today and tomorrow only. So I printed off 3 of them and plan to get the boys some shorts for back to school or socks.

Good night...sleep tight and don't let the bugs bite.

I'm featured in the Cricut Magazine August issue...on sale now

I went up to Joann's today to see the magazine in the store and well took a few pictures to share with you all. I am still waiting for my copies to be sent to me. So neat to see it was a two page layout. These are my frames that I made. So neat seeing it in the Cricut magazine...August issue 2011. These were taken with my cell phone...I did the best I could.

I am simply thrilled to be in a magazine...My first time in print. Woot!Hoo!

May you all have a terrific rest of the week.

My little guy's creation with a little help from mom.

So this is what my little guy Colten (8 years old) came up with...I had to assist him a little bit.

He gets so happy when I post his creations on my blog...though it has been awhile, I had to make that happen for him once again. So please if you have time for a comment please drop him a line. He would be so happy to read them. He was so cute he took his adorable paper and inked the white side edges which is the background paper. So cute...then he found my paper that I stamped before and decorated with stickles and paint. He liked it and wanted to use it...he thought it was made that cute, huh? So he brought me my pinking shears and asked me to do the edges. How could I refuse that cuties face. He then picked out the picture he wanted to use and the flower even the ribbon.
Entered into challenge:

I hope you like Colten's creation. We have it proudly hanging in my kitchen.

My man: Colten

Still a slow blogger

I made this card as a versatile one....meaning a thank you, birthday, hello etc.... The other night I wanted to color in a stamp from my Crafters companion Fairy set. I used my distresser and inked the edges of the ovals. Added a hanging butterfly on some wire. Summer has been so much action this year. I went away with the hubby for a job overnight in Jacksonville (kinda like a date) it was so nice. We rode over to Daytona beach and it was so beautiful. Then this past weekend we went out on the boat and did some scalloping and knee boarding. Austen really mastered it. The boys had a blast diving for scallops it was so much fun to watch and swim in the middle of the ocean...Thank goodness no shark sightings... We did finally see four dolphins on the way back in. We did not get home until 11pm. Let me tell you I am not as young as I used to be....I am worn out more today then yesterday. haha...
Welp....going to enjoy some downtime tonight. I have a huge project for tomorrow~the dreaded closet.
Hope everyone is making some great memories...I know we are. It is a month until my oldest is off to college. Wow~time is flying!
Also, I will be having a 10th, 8th and 3rd grader. Wowzers....
Miss ya...enjoy the rest of your summer.
hugs...and a smile, Tammy

Church time....

Here is my die cut church from my cricut...winter woodlands cartridge. It was so fun to make. I used some decorative paper for the stained class...stickles around the windows. Rhinestones for the door handles. Now I think I am going to have to make other buildings to make a village. Pretty fun indeed. I hope you like my take on it.

Have a terrific week my blogging friends.

My absence...a christmas flip book

I am soooooooooooo very sorry for my absence. Life is just busy as it can be. I finally was able to make a chipboard flip book. It took me a few days which is very unusual for me~I am usually faster than that. I am hoping today I will be able to dabble into crafts. I have to do something fun. Yesterday, was 8 hours of non-stop cleaning...then ended it with cleaning out the pool and jumping in. It felt wonderful...I was pretty sore. It is rough getting older. Laughing.... I used lots of scrapbooking elements,embellishments,stamping,buttons,brads and so on.

Cutting the paper and filing is the timely part. I am pretty pleased with the end results.

Trying to get a head start on some christmas gifts. Handmade ones are the best. In my opinion.

I hope everyone has a wonderful week. I am off to have some "play time". I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer so far. I know we have...though the vacation fell through. It is part of life and I am fine with that. Looking for Jansport backpacks for a reasonable if you see them anywhere let me know. I am still couponing but not as big as when I started. I have a pretty good stockpile without over doing it.

Hugs....and a smile. Tammy

Sorry~ I will still be bad about jumping over to your blogs...but I will try to get to them soon.

A layout for my sweetie Jaxten

I made this layout for my son Jaxten. He was just in the newspaper this past weekend. Note: the one where the pencil is pointing to. I used a EB image sitting on a ruler.

We are having a terrible rain storm. So not going to stay on the computer. Sure miss blogging and seeing your creations. Maybe you are like me with the Summer~not as much time on the computer.

Hugs....Tammy (too much lightning) getting off
