I've been waiting months to finally get a chance to make these calendars for my friends!  I love the look of this calendar and thought it would be perfect on a 3.5x5 magnet picture frame.  You can print them yourself here ~ there is still lots of months left......and what a great idea to "jazz" up your fridge!

Another milestone scrapped!  Love the new My Mind's Eye ~ My Girl line.  The papers were perfect to capture my daughter learning to ride without training wheels.  These papers will also work well to showcase her new bike that she just got!!

Easter Treats

I made up a bunch of these Easter Baskets to give out to my friends this Easter (March 31st!)
It's easy to make a "basket" out of many of the QuicKutz dies. Just cut out a box shape die, add a decorative handle and then embellish as desired.  Here I took the Berry Container and made it up to suit my needs!  It holds lots of goodies my friends will appreciate!!

Easter is early this year ~ March 31st.  Echo Park Paper was one out of 2 manufactures that introduced an Easter Line this year ~ Happy Easter.  Adding some dies with the embellishment sticker sheet made it a snap in creating this layout.

March QuicKutz Club

March Club Kits are ready for pick-up!!

This month's project, I made a "basket" using the Treat Carrier die cut.  Instead of cutting to make the double holder, I just cut for one side to create the "basket". Love how it turned out!!
(dies used: Treat Carrier, Easter Punches, Grass Edges, Egg and Tag) 
Die of the Month:
This die is great to add a little extra to projects!  You can use it to layer or individually.  I took this die and used the "negative" cut on a strip of paper and then added some color flowers around the cut.  Try this technique for something different ~ it looks super cute!

St. Patrick's Day Treats

Love the new mini Martha Stewart Score board.  I designed this pocket die cut on my Cameo and then used the score board to score where I wanted to fold on the die.  Added chocolates inside the pocket I created, added some St. Patrick's Day paper and embellishments to the outside and now have some great treats to give to friends!  Actually ran out of chocolates making so many of these treats!!  Love designing new ideas!!

My husband needed a pet sympathy card for a co-worker so I grabbed some pet papers and got to work.  It was a snap using the exclusive dog die from QuicKutz Club.

Wow I've been bombarded with birthdays the last few weeks, so I'm loving the new doodle tags by Doodlebug Designs which assist with the sentiment for the perfect card!  I also cut the flower die cut from felt ~ try that for a change ~ you'll love the look!!
