Hello Kitty Halloween Post-It Note Holder

I have seen several post-it note holders and wanted to try my hand at it. I picked up this HK cutting file from SVG Cutting Files during a blog hop with Jaded Blossom.  I wasn't sure what I would use it for but wanted it in my stash of files. My daughter has a lady that works with her at the Boys and Girls Club and she is all about Hello Kitty. Last Friday when I went to pick up the kids, she had a Hello Kitty shirt on.  It was at that moment I knew exactly what I wanted to do with this file.

I cut a piece of cardstock 7.5" x 3" and scored it at 3.5" and 4". I glued the bottom of the post it note to the inside of the folded piece and used the hole punch at the end of each piece to add my crinkle ribbon. I added a tag using a die from My Craft Spots Jar Basic Metal Die Set and stamped it with My Craft Spot's Jar Full of Halloween Stamp set http://craftspotbykimberly.blogspot.com/p/clear-stamps.html. I love the way it came out.

Sorry about the shadow in the picture. I was having lighting issues.

Fall Card

The weather in Alaska sure did change quickly. These leaves are dropping fast and it seems that fall will be a very short season this year. When I woke up this morning it was 27 degree outside. Winter is just around the corner.  I put this card together after receiving some of my new stamps and dies from My Craft Spot.  I had a coupon at our local True Value store and went in to find some nice fall papers, which of course they had. The paper was so fun I had to decorate the inside as well. I have not stamped the inside yet as I am not sure what/who I will use the card for. I will add it to my stash and personalize it later.

To make this card I used the following:
6x6 Happy Harvest paper by Doodlebug
My Craft Spot Jar Metal Dies
My Craft Spot Jar Basic Stamp Set & Jar Full of Fall Stamp Set
My Craft Spot Vintage Vanilla Crinkle Ribbon
My Craft Spot Trick or Treat Sequins

I am entering this card in the Die Cuttin' Diva's Tuesday Challenge-Fall Colors http://diecuttindivas.blogspot.com/

What's Poppin'

I made these sweet treats for my staff at work. I purchased the Movie Night Card Set http://svgcuttingfiles.com/catalog.php?item=579 from SVG Cutting Files months ago and was dying to use it. The make it a little easier, I purchased Wilton popcorn boxes from Walmart. I used Velcro to keep the card closed and used a stamp from Tasty Treats (My Craft Spot) for the sentiment. Peachy Keen Stamps for the cute little faces, a few doodles and I was done.

Back to School

Amazing that my to children have started back to school in 2nd and 5th grade. I sent candy and cards in for their teachers but wanted to make something for the principal. I found some fun school svg cuts at PPPR. Love, love, love her files. Also the reason I purchased a silhouette cameo and began my journey in the blog world.  Trendy Twine is new to me and I love all the different colors they offer. I have been purchasing the mini sets because they include an  assortment of several flavors. Twine is fun to work with and adds the perfect finishing touch to a project.
