November 2017 scribbleprintsco Mystery Ultimate Kit

Hi Guys! Come on in and see what I’m doing today! Here’s the November 2017 scribbleprintsco Mystery Ultimate Kit.

The sticker on the back of the mailer always gives a hint of the kits’ theme. Looks like warm, white fur, blue gem-studded necklaces, and a Christmas wishlist . . .
Inside the mailer are the kit (inside the clear acetate bag) and a heart checklist sticky note pad (an ultimate kit exclusive).

I LOVE THE BLUE!!!!!!
The Fashion Girls are back (at the top), there’s a small sampler sheet (freebie) on the left, a large sheet of deco and icons in the center and a small sheet of dinos on the right (an ultimate kit exclusive).
At the top is a sheet of washi, date labels, and a full box. The bottom sheet has 8 full boxes.
Lots of blue – from the left is navy, light blue, medium blue, and silver. Mmmmmmmmhmmmmmm . . .

Top left is a full sheet of habit trackers, appointment labels, quarter and half boxes. The sheet at the top right is full of icons, heart checklists, banners, and large appointment labels. And the bottom sheet has 8 heart checklists.
Above left is a full sheet of washi and little things labels, top right is some MARBLE washi and headers, and the center sheet has glitter washi, appointment labels, flags, and quarter boxes. Love, love, love the glitter . . .
Here’s a shot of the entire kit – it is sooooooo pretty. I just LOVE the blues!

And the glitter!!

And the fashion girls!!!

And the snowflakes!!!!
This is a week-on-two-pages spread in my December Erin Condren. This is the only time I use a “no white space” spread – normally, I like A LOT of white space, but we need to try different things sometimes, right? Keeps life interesting . . .

Butterfly Anniversary Card

Hi Guys! Come on in and see what I’m doing today! I’m making a Butterfly Anniversary Card for my daughter and son-in-law’s 9th wedding anniversary.

Above is a screen shot of the card in Cricut Design Space 3 – designing cards is so easy using this program. I learned a little at a time by watching videos, reading blogs, and practice, practice, practice. All my cards so far, go to family and friends. In the future, I want to find ways to share them with others . . .
Here is the inspiration for my card – I found it on Pinterest, which is where I almost always look for ideas. Funny how it starts one way and many times ends up so different . . . changing the paper, the ink color, the embellishments . . .
Here are the cutout pieces. I used Close To My Heart cardstock in White Daisy and Sea Glass. The “Happy Anniversary” font is Cricut Sans, and the inside sentiment font is Soiree Lettering, Grace Script. The butterfly is from the Cricut “Home for the Holidays – Spring & Summer” cartridge.
Decorating the card front layer was so much fun!!! Using CTMH ink in Saffron, Bashful, and Sea Glass, and the CTMH #D1660 Ink Blot set and Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous set, I stamped glass rings and splatters.
One of my favorite embellishment techniques is spraying pieces with shimmer – look at that sparkly butterfly!!! The pearls are from Recollections and I got them at Michaels.
Here’s the finished card. You can’t see the pink very well, it’s subtly lurking in the background. I made the envelope out of CTMH Sea Glass cardstock using my We R Memory Keepers 1-2-3 Punch Board.

SVGCuts Vintage Pumpkin Truck Box Card

Hi Guys! Come on in and see what I’m doing today! I’m making the SVGCuts Vintage Pumpkin Truck Box Card.

Above is a screen shot of the files in Cricut Design Space 3. SVGCuts creates these files perfectly. They have scorelines, a .pdf of instructions, and assembly videos – where Mary completes the projects in the video.

***When using their files, remember to change the scorelines to score, and attach the scorelines (and numbers, if there are any) to the pieces.
Here are the cutout pieces. I used Close To My Heart cardstock in Ruby, Chocolate, White Daisy, Black, Desert Sand and Autumn Terra-cotta (this color is discontinued). I also used Anna Griffin Foil Cardstock in silver.
I inked the edges of all the Ruby, Autumn Terra-cotta, and Desert Sand pieces – CTMH cardstock has a white core and inking the edges covers the white as well as adding dimension.
I assembled the layers according to the included .pdf file. This is a box card, so the next step is to create the box.
Here, I glued the front and back together along the tabs – folding while drying to make sure it will fold flat.
Then the middle insert is glue in – above is a view from the top.
And, here is a view from the front – the door even opens!!!! The attention to detail in SVGCuts files is just amazing – the door, the wheels complete with whitewalls, the wooden siderail . . . Even the pumpkins have an extra layer that makes them look more lifelike.

This project is actually the Vintage Truck Box Card, which comes with a tree in the bed of the truck. In the kit files, there is an ‘Extras’ folder that has a plain truck in it. Also, there is a free SVGCuts pumpkin file that I used for the pumpkins.
One of the best features of box cards is that they lay flat, so they fit inside an envelope and can be mailed.

October 2017 scarlet lime Planner Society Kit

Hi Guys! Come on in and see what I’m doing today! The October 2017 scarlet lime Planner Society Kit is here!!!!

I get the Monthly Planner Society Kit Club subscription, as well as the Washi Tape Kit. Above is a pic of the kits inside their paper bags – let’s open up these bad boys!!!!!
The Washi Tape Kit comes with three rolls of washi that are 30mm, 15mm, and 10mm wide. The roll at the top is a bright red and light brown floral.

The middle washi tape roll is a navy, red and green plaid.

The wide washi has green foxes that go horizontally across it – it is awesome in person!!!!
How pretty are the red roses on this bag????
Oooooo, this is the prettiest pouch I’ve ever gotten in a kit! It’s gray felt with navy, blue and white felt flowers and an awesome tie clasp . . . really . . . it is the prettiest . . .
OMG, this is the best kit ever!!!!! Above is a felt paper clip, page flags in the same designs as the kits’ paper, and a pen that has a blue floral pattern on the barrel, and blue plaid on the cap.
Above are wood veneer words, labels in gold and kit designs, and die cut tabs with 4 sheets of labels.
THESE are clear pockets with adhesive on the back – aaaaagh!!!
Above are six journaling cards and diecuts – fox, squirrel, acorns, pumpkins, birds, florals, fall clothing . . .
This is the washi tape that came in the kit – it’s the same red rose design as the bag the kit came in – Hallelujah!!
And . . . a bag with foxes all over it . . . filled with 4 sheets of stickers . . .
This paper bag is the same design as the 10mm tape from the Washi Tape Kit – inside it are 5 small stamps. I’ve never seen a stamper shaped like this – it should make them easy to hold.
The kit comes with the most beautiful paper. On the left are 6 sheets of really nice, heavy paper. And . . . On the right is an acetate sheet with the green boxes on it, and two sheets of vellum, one with the blue plaid and the other has the red roses on it.
Here’s a shot of the entire kit.
Above is a pic of my month-on-two pages spread. I used the fox acetate as a see-through dashboard on the right.
This is a weekly spread – I used my WRMK 1-2-3 Punch Board and made a pocket for the extras – attaching a clear pocket to the front of it and inserting one of the kits’ cards in it.

These kits really give you your money’s worth, provide a variety of planner supplies, and they’re always adding new items, such as the clear pockets.

The Planner Society Kits are my favorite!!!!!!

SVGCuts Triple-Layer Cake Box Card

Hi Guys! Come on in and see what I’m doing today! I’m making an SVGCuts Triple-Layer Cake Box Card from their “Garden Party Box Cards” Kit.

Above is a screen shot of the files in Cricut Design Space 3. Two important things to remember when using SVGCuts files is #1, remember to change the scorelines from cut to draw, and #2, attach the scorelines – otherwise they go on a different mat.
Here are the cutout pieces. I used Close To My Heart cardstock in Glacier, Pacifica, Raspberry, Saffron and Topiary.
I inked the edges of the pieces with coordinating CTMH ink – this adds dimension and detail to the pieces.
The frosting pieces are attached to the cake layers and then were sparkled up with a Wink of Stella pen.
The card assembly begins . . . On the left is the two-piece base that forms the box, and the right pic has the insert attached – it forms the second layer.
The inked leaves and flower petals are on the left, and then I added pearls to the centers from ms. sparkle & co. – I got them at JoAnn’s.
The flowers are all created the same – there are three layers (two petals and 1 leaf) that are glued on top of each other.
There are three different sizes of flowers – 3 large, 3 medium, and 3 small – and they will go on the front of the layers.
Here is the finished card with the beautiful flowers attached to the front of the cake.
Not only are box cards amazing, but they also fold flat so you can mail them to the recipient. Remember to put extra postage on these cards – they are usually not a standard size and they’re also bulky.

SVGCuts Tea Time Box Card

Hi Guys! Come on in and see what I’m doing today! I’m making an SVGCuts Tea Time Box Card from their Box Cards SVG Kit.

Above is a screenshot of the files in Cricut Design Space 3. As always, it looks like a lot of pieces, but they’re done one-step-at-a-time.

When using SVGCuts files, remember to change to scorelines to cut and attach them AND change the numbers to write and attach them. Otherwise, they will be on a separate mat.

Also, almost all of SVGCuts kits have assembly videos – I watch the assembly video all the way through, and then I watch it again as I am assembling my project.
Here are the cutout pieces. I used the Close To My Heart Happy Times” paper pack from the summer of 2016 and CTMH White Daisy. I used two fonts – Cricut Sans for “MAKE A” and Soiree Lettering Grace Script for “Wish.”
I used the embossing folder that came with my eBosser for the panels – the folder is not labeled, so I have no idea what the name of it is, but isn’t it pretty?
Most of the edges of the pieces were inked with CTMH ink, as seen above.
The sentiment was stamped using the CTMH Holiday Tags stamp set #D1560 and Fern ink.
Next, the panels are assembled according to the pdf that is included with the files and the video from the SVGCuts website.
Here, I attached the panels to the card base.
The card base is assembled into a box in the top left photo, the front insert is attached in the top right. The bottom left photo shows the middle insert attached, and the bottom right photo has the back insert attached.
Here’s the finished card. I added an acrylic flower in front of the teapot and some small gems to the top of the teapot and the top of the bonbon tray.
An awesome feature of box cards is that they fold flat and fit into an envelope. The recipient just has to unfold it when it is opened. Reminder, I always put an extra stamp on box cards – this one is square and lumpy.

October 2017 etsy Sticker Haul

Hi Guys! Come on in and see what I’m doing today! This is my October 2017 etsy Sticker Haul. I see the cutest stickers on Instagram, so I decided to check out a few etsy shops.

The stickers above came from the Pumpkin Paper Co. This shop features a girl with red hair – but you can customize the hair color. Cool, huh?

I love snowflakes/snowmen, so these particular stickers are right up my alley. The top right sheet are weekday headers, and the bottom right are Christmas bucket list stickers – these would look cute in a December Daily . . .
This shop is plannerchoco, and my stickers came in this heavy, multi-colored gem paper. It’s pretty AND useful – it could be a planner dashboard, wrapping paper, a greeting card layer . . .
These were freebies included with my order. I love the themed mini sampler sheets, and how about that glitter??? The Halloween stickers look hand-drawn and are just adorable.
I am always looking for weekday headers – which is why I ordered from this shop. These stickers are brushstrokes with the words in white – black numbers are included and can be placed individually on the headers.
The final shop I used is lovelyplannerie – the stickers came in this personalized folder – I could definitely punch holes in this and make a folder for a planner.
Inside the folder is a small sticker sampler and a note from the shop owner.
These are weekday glitter headers in various colors – they also come with numbers that can go on the headers. I also got some plain weekday headers – sometimes I like plain.

I’ve found that etsy shops give you a personal experience – personalized notes, customized color schemes, matte or glossy finish, and contests. I am also supporting small business owners. Win, win!!

November 2017 Cocoa Daisy Dori Standard Kit “Comfy Cozy”

Hi Guys! Come on in and see what I’m doing today! The November 2017 Cocoa Daisy Dori Standard Kit “Comfy Cozy” is here!!!

I just love the yellow polkadots!! I know what it is the second I see it . . .
Here’s a view of the inside – sunny yellow crinkled paper – “pretty planner things” peeking out . . .
I get the Planner Add On Kit – none of the items in this kit are in the Planner Kit – they are completely different.

The first item is “a little roll of happy” washi tape called Floral Dots. How pretty is that???
Above is a beautiful gold chevron pen and a Terra Cotta Pot sticky note pad that works with the sticky notes in the Planner Kit.
This is a felt succulent clip from Planning Zen – it came in a really pretty clear plastic bag with a white doily design.
Above are die cuts designed by Just Jaimee, 3×4 notecards, and you can see the 4×6 notecard through the bag below (no idea how I didn’t get a pic of it).
On the left is a cellophane bag of goodies. On the right is a general planner sticker sheet, an extra planner sticker sheet, a sheet of date and alpha stickers, all designed by Just Jaimee.

Inexplicably, I don’t have a picture of the stamp set featuring a llama and succulents . . . See them on my planner spread down below . . .
The main Planner Kit always comes in a white muslin drawstring bag with “Enjoy Every Day” on it.
This “little roll of happy” washi tape was designed by arleigh and is called Blanket Weave.
How pretty is this succulent pen loop from Peonies Paperie????
Above is a 3×5 notepad and succulent sticky notes, both designed by arleigh.
These are puffy clip topper stickers that fold over a large gold paper clip.
I didn’t take all of the die cuts and 6 tab die cuts, designed by arliegh, out of the bag.

I love, love, love the blues . . . and the greens . . .
Above are a planner sticker sheet, a date sticker sheet, and a sheet of mix and match succulents and pots, all designed by arleigh. At the bottom is a small sheet of tab label stickers designed by Just Jaimee.
I get the standard-sized travelers notebook with a Kraft cover that you can leave as is or decorate it with paper from the kit.
The pages include:
• Monthly Calendar
• 3 lined journaling pages
• 11 blank (with design) pages
• 10 graph paper pages with 3 sections
• 10 unlined papes with 3 sections
• Last page with design
The Planner Kit comes with six 6×8 papers designed by arleigh.
Here’s a shot of the entire kit – it is sooooo pretty!!!!
This is the month-on-two-pages spread for November . . . I. Love. It. I colored in the stamped images with colored pencils – it was so fun!!!
Finally, this is a one-week spread that emphasizes the blues in the elements. Ugh, it came out soooo good!!

Halloween Canvas Bags

Hi Guys! Come on in and see what I’m doing today! I made Halloween Canvas Bags for my grandchildren to collect their trick or treat goodies.

Vinyl projects are my second favorite crafting projects, after paper crafting, of course. Above is a screenshot of the first bags’ design in Cricut Design Space 3. How cool is this going to be????
Here’s my step-by-step process for an iron on image:
1. Insert image into DS3 – from Cricut images or an uploaded image
2. Resize image to desired size
3. Click “Make It”
4. Click “Mirror” toggle (it has to cut backwards)
5. Put iron on material on mat – shiny side down – I always have to check which direction
6. “Continue”

The image is from ‘Holiday One-Cut Gallery Art’ and is specifically called “Halloween Pumpkin Art.” The bags are from Michaels and I used Cricut orange iron-on vinyl.

This image is from the “Monster Bash” cartridge, and is called “Skull Halloween Doily.” It is also an access file.
I used Cricut black glitter iron-on vinyl on this bag.
The other two images were from Cricut. I searched this image on Google Images – my search terms were “Witch Legs Gallery Art.”

Then I used convertico.com to convert the .jpg file to an .svg file – so much easier than trying to clean it up in Cricut!! Then I uploaded the .svg file into CDS3.

Easy Peasy . . .
Here’s the finished bag. I’m thinking my granddaughter could use fabric crayons to color it in . . . I used black iron-on vinyl from craftvinyl.com – just a note, if you order vinyl from this site, read the rules . . . just sayin’ . . . read the rules . . .

The possibilities for images like this are endless . . . T-shirts . . . Canvases . . . Textiles . . . Anything you can iron on . . .

Erin Condren Fall 2017 Seasonal Surprise Box

Hi Guys! Come on in and see what I’m doing today! I FINALLY got the Erin Condren Fall 2017 Seasonal Surprise Box.

Not sure what happened to my Surprise Box (my tracking kept saying pending – for like forever), but customer service was great and resent a new box. Seriously, how awesome is that????

Above is a view inside the box – lime green tissue paper and an “enjoy!” sticker.
Inside the tissue paper are the package of pen holders I ordered, as well as a really pretty purple box . . .
There were 2 cards inside the box. The one on the left has a coupon that expired the day before I received it  🙁   The card on the right is an explanation for the box – theme, how to win the next season’s box, giving feedback, yada yada yada . . .
On the left is a pad of 30 lined sticky notes, and on the right are 3 dual-tip markers – the colors are awesome!!!
Here are 3 note cards – nice for sending a quick note – which I do . . .
This is a 16 foot roll of paper tape – and it’s paper – pretty cool!!!
These are large labels you can put on gifts – there are some Halloween ones, also that didn’t make the pic . . .
This is a Dashboard that will clip into a coil planner – it’s laminated, so you can use a wet erase pen and be able to erase it.
There were two large sheets of stickers – one has a fall them with gold-foil embellishments – the other has a Halloween theme.
This is a “grateful” flair pin – not sure what I’m going to do with this . . . Wear it? Put it in my planner? Hmmmmm . . .
Finally, this is both sides of a Metallic Fall Leaf cover – how pretty is that? I love the inside where you can use wet erase markers and write lists, or quotes, or whatever, on them and then you can erase it. Nice.
Here’s a shot of the entire box contents. This is my 2nd seasonal box, and I’m not sure if I’ll get it again. Any thoughts????
