3D – Happily Ever Crafter

Personal Update + Quick Gift Card Holder

1 crafts 2015-03-03 035

Hello!! I know that I have stepped away for a bit (really, was it a WHOLE week?!). Please excuse my absence…I started by painting my daughter’s room and making it look all pretty then it took a turn. Oh yeah, my hubby is really happy with me right now. That little transformation led to buying a new rug and curtains for the living room. Those pretty pieces led to me painting the living room and hallway to match the new rug and curtains. THEN, I really needed to paint the bathroom because it was too dark in there! (*don’t know how I feel about that color that I just painted it though…living with it for a bit to see if I can stand it!) This morning I bought a few new towels to perk up the bathroom. My last TO-DO project before having everyone over on Sunday is to paint what used to be a vanity (we just took the mirror off) and we are turning it into a desk. I ran to a couple of thrift shops yesterday (because YES, I am running out of money RE-decorating my house) and found a chair (which I am going to paint to match the new “desk”) and a lamp for the new “desk”. The last thing I need to go buy are new handles for the drawers and then I am finished.

Do you ever go through periods like this? Wow, it’s been a while since I bought anything new for the home and it kind of spiraled into a shopping spree and a LOT of work. However, I am *loving* how most is turning out. This is everything but, the bathroom…hopefully it will grow on me because painting a bathroom is NOT fun…so much to trim around.

Ok, onto the quick (and I mean quick) project today. I am running out of time and YES the kiddos will be home with me tomorrow…YAY! I needed some quick gift card holders for my nieces for Easter. They are just getting too big for coloring books and bubbles. 🙁 So, this little pouch will be perfect for me to slip a g.c. into plus maybe even a candy bar!

If you have questions please let me know. I have to get off here and get to painting that new desk.  Have a great day! 🙂

Here are the supplies that I used to put these together:

Valentine’s Treat + Now ON SALE at Stampin’ Up!

1 crafts 2015-02-10 002

Hi all! I told you yesterday that I had a sick little boy on my hands. Well, here is the update…that little boy is still occupying the couch full time. He is slowly on the mend. I know that he will be home with me again tomorrow at least. So far everyone else is staying healthy. **crossing fingers and saying some prayers**

I had some Cherry Sour Balls sitting on my desk that were begging for a little attention. AND, I need to NOT eat them. 🙂 That’s where today’s project began. Hey, Valentine is such a cute set and I needed to play with it again before the big day this weekend! I think we will send these to the kid’s teachers’.

I gotta run to get my daughter off the bus so, if you have ANY questions please let me know. I’m leaving you a supply list down below!

Hey, Valentine Class Treats!

1 crafts 2015-01-29 009

Happy Friday, everyone! I have another Hey, Valentine sample for you today. I spoke about these little bags of Gold Fish in yesterday’s post. I may have lightened this image a bit too much with my editing. 🙂 However, I did color my little fishey’s with lighter colored ink and a blender pen (Strawberry Slush and Pool Party)…it just looks even lighter in this photo.

If you are looking for something really quick AND cute for Valentine’s Day then this set is SO perfect for you! All I did was cut my cardstock, stamp the fish, color them in, and stapled them to the package of Gold Fish. What?! SO easy! My kiddos are doing their own class valentine’s this year! Order your HEY, VALENTINE set right here!

Fun Valentine Treat for the Kids! (or grown-ups too!)

Wow, can you believe that there are only a few days left in January? Whew, it’s flying (and that is ok with me!)…come on Spring! On the flip side it means that Valentine’s Day is just over 2 weeks away. Are you ready for this lovey dovey holiday?!

If you are looking for something quick and easy for the kiddos to take to school for all of their friends? Look no further! Hey, Valentine will get you ready for the sweet filled holiday in no time! Of course, if you are like me then you realize that our kids do not need MORE candy so, I am going with the oh-so-yummy Gold Fish.

Last week when I was walking through the grocery store I stumbled upon a package of 9 bags of Gold Fish. Hmmm…my minds starts designing instantly. I threw it in the cart and away I went. This project is the result of that impulse purchase. 🙂 Um, please tell me that I am not the only one designing projects/cards while trolling the stores?!

Now today I ran into Target and came across a BIG bag of 25 snack bags specially marked for Valentine’s Exchange…much better as these were about the same price as the package of 9 that I purchased (plus, my kiddos already ate some of those anyway). I will create a simpler tag for these smaller bags that my kids will take to their classmates. I mean, I LOVE cute, layered, and over the top however, these kids just want the treats, right?! So, these larger (and more fancy ones) can be for the teachers.

Below is your shopping list for today’s project (the Gold Fish-you will have to run to the store for those 😉 ) Order Hey, Valentine soon though so that you have time to put your cards and treats together! Just one more note: the ribbon is non-Stampin’ Up! I picked it up some time ago.

 

Today I am going to be working on samples for the next class:  Birthday Bash! Have a great Thursday everyone! Oh, and if you have any questions just leave a comment!
