Design Tote Bag

Since I stopped playing games on FB I now have more time to make stuff. I was neglecting my crafting because I was addicted to playing too much games. I'm now back hopefully in full force and looking forward to surf everyone's blog to see the new creations.

I was looking for something to make tonight to teach at my craft class for some friends next month. I decided to make this tote bag as usual in my favorite colors pink and green. I love how this turned out! The bottom of the bag is 4-1/2" x 1-1/2", opening is 5-1/2" x 1-1/2" and the height is 5-1/4" tall. I found the buttons that I bought sometime ago and decided to use them. The butterfly is from a punch that I borrowed from my sister purchased from SU and the DP is from Tapestry. For some reason the green color in the top picture looks different from the bottom picture probably because of my lighting in the room.

Anyway Thanks for stopping by and Have a Great Day!


Hello Kitty Baby Shower gifts

I've been busy making ALOT of Hello Kitty heads this past week for a baby shower for my daughter-in-law that was today. Her due date is August 1 so I had to hurry up and do something just incase she was to give birth sooner. She loves Hello Kitty and since I only planned it last week I didn't have enough time to make boxes or bags and decided to use pink bags and attach the heads to the each bag for all the game prizes that we played.

My youngest sister made such a beautiful diaper cake. I Love it!! if you lift the middle layer you can see that there is receiving blankets in the bottom layer inside the middle rolled around then diapers wrapped separately in tissue paper. The middle layer itself has a container for powered milk then diapers wrapped around it again. The cup cake holder are filled with socks, bibs and onesies. There are other onesies around the cake with ribbon hair pins too. What a cute gift to give.

I made this bouquet of roses for her with baby clothes, bibs and socks wrapped like roses. I also wrapped the bouquet in a fleece blanket too.

Here are the bags that I made all the assorted Hello Kitty heads for. What fun it was but sure was alot of work making the heads.

Thanks for stopping by and Have a Great Week!!


Hello Kitty Purse

Tried something new today again and made a Hello Kitty purse. Yes another bag again!! The purse measurements are 5" wide, 3.25" high and 1.5" in depth. I had fun creating this but wasn't really sure what I really wanted to create. Does anyone keep any samples that you create? I always tend to give everything away and when I see it, I always wish that I kept 1 for myself too because it turned out so nice. I was actually supposed to make HK favors but got carried away and made this purse first. I think I like the embossed purse better than the the solid one. Thanks for stopping by and Have a Great Day!


Animal Cracker Box

So I was able to craft again this weekend!! Yippee!! I made this box almost the size of a animal cracker box so thats what I decided to call it. I made this box of goodies for Denise who I met at the Town Center this weekend to drop off a Cricut cartridge to her. Had fun creating this yesterday and hope to make more. My sisters and I are working on making 60 HELLO KITTY explosion boxes for a 1 year old birthday party. Hopefully we won't EVER have to make this again!! It takes toooo long and alot of WORK. What were she thinking??? It's fun though but too much work involved. I will take some pics of them after we are done. We hope to finish with it real soon!! Have a Great Day!!


Create a Critter Notepads

So I've finally got the chance to play around in my craft room! It's been a long time since I've created something and decided to try to get back into it again. I recently got the "Create a Critter" cartridge and thought this would be a great idea to make some notepad covers with the critters. I used 5 x 7 notepads for this but still need to figure the sizes of the critters to fit on the pad. I'm having a little fun with it and can't wait until the weekend. I will be making about 50 of these for the kids for our company picnic and adding some crayons with some other goodies for them. I hope the kids will like these and Thanks for stopping by! Have a Great rest of the week!
