Cosmo Cricket's Material Girl

*Card removed for publication in the November '10 issue of Cards Magazine*
I received some new Material Girl this weekend from That Scrappy Girl and dug right in! I was cropping with my sisters and some friends and actually got a few things done besides talk, eat and shop. It is National Craft Month so I decided to make a wall hanging for my craft room. I used a piece of acrylic from Midnight Oil Scrapbook Designs as the base and then used various items from Cosmo Cricket's Material Girl. I also had time to make a couple cards as well. This collection is super cute, so I am sure I will have more things to share soon!
(That Scrappy Girl is busy adding all kinds of new products from Cosmo Cricket, Sassafras Lass and others so if you don't see it in the store yet, it's coming soon :-)

My Mind's Eye Breaking Free

At a recent crop in my goodie bag I received 3 identical packages of some EK Success stickers that included this couple. I thought they went perfectly with the My Mind's Eye Breaking Free product I had just received in a Cards goodie box. I was happy with the way both of them turned out! Extras include some Creatively Green cardstock, Kaisercraft pearls, Cosmo Cricket ABC stickers, Queen and Co jewels and American Crafts sentiment sticker.

Creative Cuts and More Celebrating Women Blog Hop!!

Thank you for stopping by today! Weren't Kayla's projects great? If you arrived at my blog first, be sure to start at the Die Cut Divas blog so you don't miss anyone! There is also a sale going on this week at Creative Cuts and More. Use code woman0310 at checkout to save 15% off your order. This expires March 15, 2010.

I have two projects to share with your today. The first is a mini gift bag. This could be used for a friend or sister you haven't seen in a while. You can fill it with their favorites - candy, lotions, nail polish, gift certificate...anything! I used the Square Bag #01 Color - Tropical Breeze - Bazzill Smoothies, but you can select a variety of colors with this die cut. I also used the Killer Red Tacky Tape. I love this tape, you don't have to worry about your project falling apart!
*This will be featured in the Aug/Sept '10 issued of Simply Handmade*
On my second project I used the Match Box Large - Color Berry Sensation - Bazzill Smoothies (once again you can chose from a large number of colors) and Killer Red Tacky Tape. When I applied the rubons I did this before assembling the box so that I had a nice hard surface to work with. You can also include candies, trinkets etc as a little surprise when opened. Next on the hop is Chris Dickinson! I have also listed everyone on the hop below.

Creative Cuts and More Match Box

I wanted to invite everyone to the Creative Cuts and More blog hop that starts on Monday the 8th. There will be a variety of projects and inspiration so please stop by! I had the honor of being a Guest Designer for them in March and will have more projects to share during the hop. I made this little Valentiney/Lovey box using the Match Box Large Die Cut. (You can get them in a variety of colors) These are very easy to assemble and I recommend using the Killer Red Tacky Tape. The paper I used is from Elle's Studio XOXO collection. You can find this at That Scrappy Girl and comes in a 6x6 pack - a great size for cards and small projects. Although still works great on layouts too!
