Monday Hop with EAD Designs ~ Laptop


Hello and welcome to EAD Designs Monday Blog Hop!  Well if you don't know, I'm at CHA today!   I've wanted to go for so long and now I'm here!  Can you tell I'm a little excited?  Anyway, back to reality :) you should have arrived here from EAD's Blog.  If you just popped in to see me, please head over there for the start!  Don't forget to leave a comment along the way so you're eligible for this week's giveaway!

About a  month ago while digging through my EAD stash, I looked at my laptop and thought hmmm...It looked so plain!  Then I found some rub-ons that were left over from another project!

And voila in less that 2 minutes my laptop is too cute!





I will be posting pictures of my trip to CHA later in the week! 

Your next stop is the fabulous Amy T!

My Creative Time ~ 3-D Wednesday! Speedy Recovery

Hello, it's 3-D Wednesday at My Creative Time!  If you don't know what that is, it simply means we can make anything but a card or a layout!  Emma, asked me to use her Many Greetings stamp set, so I decided to make a get well post it note book.  However for a bit of a twist, I stamped a tic tac toe board inside! 

I placed the rocket on a wobble!!!

I also used Swiss Dots Cuttlebug and stickles on Saturn!

I only stamped the tic tac toe board on a few pages just to give the person receiving it an idea!


I will be making a vidoe next week on how I made the holder, so stay tuned!  :)

Recipe:
 Just Because Cricut Cartridge
rocket cut at 1.63 x 4.96
Everyday Paper Dolls Cricut Cartridge
saturn cut at 1.09 x 2.76
Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge
labels cut at 2.77 x 2.65 and 2.93 x 2.80
Swiss Dots Cuttlebug
paper: Papertrey Ink, Bo Bunny, American Craft cardstock
wobble, stickles, twine, post it note, mini gel pen

I'm also entering this into the Cricut Circle Challenge!

EAD's Monday Hop

Hi Everyone and welcome to EAD Designs Monday Hop!  Some people don't care for Mondays, however I love them!  How could I not when I get to start it off with a Hop!  Now you should have arrived here from Lauren's blog, but if not then head over to EAD's blog for the start!  That way you'll be eligible for this week's giveaway!

I also wanted to share with you a video from start to finish how easy EAD's vinyl is to use!




 EAD has over 40 colors of vinyl to choose from! 

recipe:
salvage board
paint


In the video I said that my daughter told me it was a Juicy Couture slogan and it might be.  However I decided to look it up, this is what Wikipedia said: Keep Calm and Carry On was a poster produced by the British government in 1939 during the beginning of the Second World War, intended to raise the morale of the British public in the event of invasion.

So when I said I wanted it to look old and from another country, I wasn't so wrong after all!  hehehe

Your next stop is Amy T!

Enjoy!

Happy Tuesday and welcome to My Creative Time's January Release ~ Day 2!  Today we are showcasing More Gift Card Sentiments stamp set!  Oh, I'm so excited that Miss Emma added more sentiments for her gift card holder die!  Maybe it's just me, but I'm always trying to do too much with a too little time! Since these are so quick and easy to make, the die and sentiments are just awesome to have on hand for those last minute gifts for people like me! lol!

So for today's project I decided to make a little shower gift card holder.  I know that I'll be going to one soon!  Hey, look at me, I'm ahead of the game!  :)
Isn't this cute!  I love that you can make a handmade gift card holder in very little time! 

I added a little glitter to the top edge and stickles to the 2 hearts on the cake!
