NASCAR Experience B-Day Card...

Addicted to NASCAR or perhaps there's a wonderful man in your life who is?
Well we are and for my DH's 50th, I bought him a NASCAR experience at Auto Club Speedway, where he'll learn to drive a real NASCAR all on his own.  Naturally I needed a super fun Birthday card to go with his gift.  I instantly remembered this cute little monster digi, I colored in a Copic class given by Michelle Houghton and thought he'd be an excellent place to begin. I added the checkered flags, to make the little cutie race ready ;) 

Here's my DH's 50th Birthday card...  I hope you like it!

My 1st Magazine Publication... Awesome Reusable Tags!

Hi Everyone!

Yes it's true, I've been published in Cricut Magazine® Cards Idea Book Dec 2013 and I'm so excited to finally be able to share the news with my crafty friends. 

It's a project I'd posted previously, some of you may remember.  I was asked to pull it from all websites for a certain amount of time and now I am able to share it again :):):)

Here's another 1st.... A video about my tags.

Awesome Reusable Tags:
Tags and flowers were created in CCR and cut using my Cricut Expression with Art Philosophy cartridge.
Inks, stickles & rock candy crackle paints by Tim Holtz. Tattered Angles (for shimmer)
Vintage seam binding ribbon.
Sewing, ball chain, eyelet, background rubber stamp.
For the reusable pocket, I cut up an Avery brand, protector sheet and sewed it on. 

You can also add rhinestones or brads in the center of your flowers, instead of stickles, for a different look.

Wishing you a super fun & artistic day!

From Our Family To Yours... Merry Christmas!

Holy cow... Where did this year go?!!!  Each year seems to go by quicker and quicker, t's amazing.  I'v hardly had a chance to do anything creative this year.  I've even had numerous custom requests that I had to turn down.
I hope you're all doing well and staying as crafty as ever.  

Here's a cute little Christmas card I managed to squeeze in.  The little flags are hand-cute from some fun Christmas material, I found in my stash.

Crepe Paper & Old Book Page Flowers...

So I ran across some great colors of crepe paper (party steamers) and an old dictionary at the thrift store.  I just could resist buying them to see what I could create.  Here's the 1st project :)

Hope everyone's having a great week!

Hugs, Lisa

A little off the beaten path....

Hi, I hope your enjoying this fine Labor day!!!  It's been super hot & humid here, but nice to finely get some down time :):):)

So, I've noticed these adorable little needle felted critters all over the internet and I just had to give it a go.  Trust me when I say, if you're going to try it, be very careful... I gave myself a few good stabbings with that crazy felting needle and it doesn't feel so hot!!!

The black and white kitty is in the likeness of my sweet little Hailey cat, who passed away in June this year.  It's not great, but not too shabby for my first try ;)

The second one is a cute little lop eared bunny, I made especially for my Blythe doll "Georgina".  I have yet to find subtitle eyes for this cute little bun-bun, but I am on the lookout. I tried googly eyes and didn't like them.  I think i'll try some black beads?!

All you need is:  Roving Wool, Felting needles, Foam felting pad and some eyes.

Wedding Guest-Box Tags....


Thought I'd drop by & share some sweet little tags I created for a co-worker.  Her daughter is getting married next month and instead of a guestbook, she is going to have e a lovely little guest-box.  So they requested some customized tags to use on their adorable little box.  Her wedding is vintage & very soft colors, so here's what I made them.  Hope you like.  BTW... They were a success, they loved them :)

The papers are metallic & so beautiful in person... I tried but it's hard to capture how pretty they are.

Happy Thursday everyone!!!
