Tree card

This gorgeous card is another one from Creative Kuts.
I really am happy with how it turned out.
I kept it simple using plain card stock, then embossed the pieces with a snowflake embossing folder and the swiss dots embossing folder.
 I used a white ink pad to add extra depth and some tiny gems for sparkle.

Easy Press shirts

I made a few more shirts using my Easy Press! I'm so loving this tool!
I've been wanting to make shirts for a long time but my iron was not up to par so this is really exciting for me.
You can see some others here.
I saw this shirt online and knew Emily needed it! lol
She's a nut for kids playing Roblox and toy unboxing videos


And here is an example of what NOT to do when making shirts!
Totally sobbing here!
I made a card using this digi from Scribbles designs, you can see it here
And I immediately wanted to make a shirt with it.
The blue foil was tricky to weed, the cut lines didn't separate easily.
So after an hour of fighting when I finally separated the last bit I was exhausted and ready to get it done, plus it was late and I was already tired.
I didn't look close enough and didn't even see my mistake until I looked back at the pictures in  my phone to see if they looked ok!


Do you see my mistake?! UGH!!! So bummed!
The Easy Press does such a great job there's no saving it.
I'll wear it anyway...besides, this shirt was a huge bargain! I found it at the Dollar Tree! Yes, some stores got t-shirts in! I bought quite a few, they are brand shirts and this one is a long sleeve lightweight polyester, perfect for Florida winters.

So my tip to you, look and look again and don't craft tired!

Enchanted winter castle

Today I have an amazing project to share with you!!
Dreaming tree just release this Enchanted Winterland Castle bundle.
I HAD to make it, it's so amazing!!!
I went through my papers and picked out some and went shopping for the main purple, it's got embossed polka dots on it and picked up the white glitter paper.

This castle is big!! It takes a lot of paper but I am in love and already planning out my next one!
I used the micro string lights you can get now with battery packs to light the main castle.
I need to get some tea lights for the two front towers.












It's just stunning!! I spent one evening cutting all the pieces then most of the next day assembling it!
Emily wants it for her Shopkins, sorry kiddo, not gonna happen!
Right now it's on display on the entertainment center right above the tv! 
Leo, the owner of Dreaming Tree has created a facebook group where we can all share our creations! You should check it out, there are some awesome works there.

Cookie time!!



So if you haven't seen them around yet, it's cookie season!!
This is Emily's second year selling cookies.  She loves it and is so good talking to people!


Since this year we are in a new troop and I am not in charge of cookies for a whole troop I have some time to make some decorations for the cookie booths.
I came up with this idea to let people know they can buy cookies for our troops.
A lot of people don't know that you can buy cookies and the Girl Scouts council will send those cookies to troops stationed out of the country! I love this program and think it's really important.


Out troop leader posted this idea on our page so I made up something to add to the cookie booth along with our flag.  I went to the dollar store and picked up the soldiers and basket then made the sign in my SIL program using the same flag file.


This was the first booth Emily participated in.  They were the Cookie first aid doctors, helping those ailing from Girl Scout cookie withdrawals.


One of my facebook friends has a grand daughter who's a new Daisy this year.  She posted some great ideas for shirts for cookie season, so I made Emily a shirt for her to wear.



And I had to make myself one too!


This is the link for Emily's online cookie sales.
She's got a big goal this year, I love that she chose to surpass her goal last year. It's a big task.
She would love your help!
