ICS Blog Hop: Taco Fiesta Birthday Bash


Hello, hello!!

 I am so excited to share our Birthday Bash with you tonight!! Hop along with us and you will see all kinds of birthday projects...maybe even one or two that you can use for an upcoming event in your life!

I used the Taco Fiesta Stamp Set. It has all kinds of fun stamps and some great sentiments too! 

I chose to decorate one of the Embossed Treat Bags. Just think, if you wanted to do a pinata at your party, but had no place to hang it and/or not enough room to actually hit it and break it open. You could just decorate these bags with the cute pinata stamp, add some fun ribbons, and then fill it with stuff and hand them out to your guests. 

I am thinking of filling them up and gifting them to my gal pals, if we do a Cinco de Mayo luncheon. What would you put in yours?

Thanks for hopping with us tonight! Leave a comment when you see something(s) you like! Let's hop on over to Terri's blog and see what fun birthday related project she has to share with us!

Until next time...
Happy Craftin'!

IDEAS Blog Hop: Stunning Scraps


Hello crafters!  I'm so excited to share our March IDEAS Blog Hop with you today. Our theme this month is: Stunning Scraps. Do you struggle with what to do with your scraps? How big does it need to be to be saved? What do I do with the thin strips, or small pieces? Our projects are full of ideas to use up the scraps; pieces, strips, chunks...all of it!! 

Here is a sampling of some of the projects you will find in this month's bundle:

My actual tutorial designs are secret and exclusively shared in the tutorial.  But, here is a bonus project, not included in the bundle, using what else....scraps!! 

I used 1/4" strips and then cut squares to get a quilt look. I did use the Sending Smiles stamp set, which I used on all my bundle projects.
