Spring Banner

I spent a good amount of time in my craftroom this Sunday and it felt really good.  I did a layout, a couple of cards and a banner.  I'd like to share the banner with you today.  I made this banner to perk up my very, very, dull, drab cubicle at work. 

I used my Cricut to design the banner.  The cartridges I used were Elegant Edges for each section and Plantin School Book for the letters.  The ribbon is Celebrate It sheer ribbon from Michaels and the little pearls at each corner are I-Rock Glam Rocks Pearls and were put on with my I-Rock, of course.  The little flowers on each were just flowers I had in my stash --white paper flowers and purple ribbon flowers with pearls sewed on. 

Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs, Paula

Dog House Treat Boxes

Today my sweet yellow lab Jackson turns 10!  To celebrate his birthday I usually bake him a home made treat.  This year I made him some peanut butter cookies shaped like dog bones.  Since the recipe makes a lot, I made some treat boxes shaped like dog houses and they will be filled with the cookies for some of his doggie pals.  I included the recipe for each of the recipients so their "parents" would know what the cookies are made of.  I'd love to hear what you think of my treat boxes.  Leave me a comment below.  Thanks.
Hugs Paula and Birthday Boy Jackson!

I'm back with a new project

Hello everyone,

I know it has been a long long time since I've posted.  So much has been going on, I just haven't had too much time to craft.  The last few months have been spent on home improvement projects, some because I wanted to and some because I had to LOL!  Anyway, hopefully I'll be getting back into my craft room to do some of the things I love.  Attached is a sneak peak of a project I recently worked on, a tool box.  It will hold a small notebook/mini album that can be used to record projects, measurements, lists of supplies, and photos of the completed project.  I haven't finished the book part yet, but I thought the tool box came out really cute.  I think this would be a great gift for that "handy person" in your life. 

Once I complete the book, I'll post more pictures of the tool box.  If anyone is intersted, I'm planning on creating a tutorial on how it was all made.  Hope you like my latest design and I look forward to your comments.
