“I only have Pies for You” happy day tag

"I Only Have Pies for You" tag.

My sister-in-law loves to bake pies.

When it comes to Thanksgiving, there is almost a pie-per-person ratio.

It’s not just pumpkin, but peanut butter (my favorite),

cherry, and chocolate pies. (To name a few.)

So, when I saw the new “I only have pies for you” soap from Bath and Body,

I knew I needed to pick it up for her.

It’s not only perfect, but it smells wonderful too.

"I Only Have Pies for You" tag.

Since her birthday is right around the corner,

I thought I’d make her a special pie tag to go with it.

The Hey, Pumpkin Stamp & Die Set* from

The Maker’s Movement was just the die to make the tag.

"I Only Have Pies for You" tag.

Two of my favorite hardworking little machines.

  • Before I die-cut all the small pieces, I ran the cardstock through the Xyron Create a Sticker Mini*.  It makes all the die-cuts into stickers and that makes assembling the card easy.
  • The Mini Maker Die Cutting Machine* makes quick work of die cutting.  And it doesn’t take up a lot of space.

A special tag for my favorite pie maker.

  • Instead of a brown center for the sunflower, I cut a circle using polka dot paper from the Autumn Breeze Paper Pad.

Super Mario Bros. Inspired Bedroom

Super Mario Bros. Inspired Bedroom

A bedroom makeover for a couple of boys obsessed with all things Super Mario Bros.

Super Mario Bros. Inspired Bedroom

Bedroom Makeover-Before

My daughter-in-law has been hard at work transitioning her oldest son into his new tween room

and the younger boys into a new bedroom together.

Since the boys are obsessed with all things Super Mario Bros.,

she decided to create a Super Mario Bros. Inspired Bedroom.

She had everything planned out but only needed help with one thing.

She wanted super large letters for the wall.  (She figured I was the person to ask.)

Super Mario Bros. Inspired Bedroom

To make the Super Mario Bros. inspired letters…

Super Mario Bros. Inspired Bedroom

  • Place the cut vinyl letters onto the slightly larger black letters using the Vinyl Transfer Tape*.

Super Mario Bros. Inspired Bedroom

  • The room was painted “Big Sky Country” with Dutch Boy’s Duraclean Paint, in eggshell.
  • Use a strip of removable blue painter’s tape* as a guide to place the letters.
  • Leave the paper backing on the back of the black letters.  Cut around the letters and place them on the wall with the blue painter’s tape*.

Super Mario Bros. Inspired Bedroom

  • Gently rub over the letters with the vinyl scraper tool to ensure the letters have stuck to the vinyl transfer tape.
  • Carefully peel up the transfer tape, keeping the transfer tape in place, and remove the paper backing from the letter.
  • Rub over the letter to help it stick to the wall.

Super Mario Bros. Inspired Bedroom

For even more Super Mario Bros. Fun…

  • My daughter-in-law used decals and Super Mario Bros. characters hand cut from the wallpaper to create the decorations around the room.
  • She trimmed the white outline off the decals and cut out by hand the characters from the wallpaper.

Super Mario Bros. Bedroom-After

Super Mario Bros. Bedroom

  • The room wouldn’t be complete without Super Mario Bros. Comforters*, Pillows, and of course their favorite “stuffies”.  (Unbelievably, I know quite a few of their names.)

Super Mario Bros. Bedroom

I was there when the boys saw the finished room for the first time.

One of them exclaimed “it’s like a whole level of Super Mario World”.

They were a little excited!  (Good Job, Mom!)

Sending Sunshine on a Cloudy Day

  • I die-cut pieces using the Stacking Flowers Die out of yellow patterned paper from the Cloudy Day paper pad.
  • The flower was assembled using 3D Thin Foam Squares*.

Sending Sunshine on a Cloudy Day

  • I used the “Hello Sunshine Stamp & Die Set” for the sunshine layers on the bottom of the card.
  • I also used the “Hello Sunshine Stamp & Die Set for the small banner with the stamped words “sending you”.
  • My favorite tip for die-cutting small or thin pieces is to add a layer of adhesive using a Xyron Creative Station®* before die-cutting.

Sending Sunshine on a Cloudy Day.

This card was fast and easy to assemble and is sure to brighten up anyone’s day.

Sunflower Thank You Card

Sunflower Thank You Card

There’s something special about receiving a handmade card.

In a world where kindness is “perceived” to be in short supply,

the power of a well-meaning Thank You note goes a long way.

Do you still send greeting cards?

I’ll be honest I don’t send cards like I used to.

I make them; I don’t always send them.  (Sound familiar?)

It’s too easy to wish someone a special greeting on social media or in a text.

Eat Cake Birthday Card

Directions:

Eat Cake Birthday Card

  • Stamp portions of the cake on patterned paper from the Rainbow Sprinkles Paper Pad*.
  • For extra dimension, place the stamped paper onto white cardstock.
  • Cut the “icing layer” using a fine-detailed scissor and adhere the layer on top of the cut-out cake layer. 
  • My secret ingredient for this “fussy cut” 3-tiered cake is my Xyron Create a Sticker Mini*. It makes applying the layers extremely easy.  Just place the paper into the machine and crank the handle, as it runs through the sticker-maker it adds a layer of adhesive onto the back of the paper.

Eat Cake Birthday Card

  • Cut a frame using the Crafty Chica Nested Frame Die Set*and white cardstock.
  • Use paper from the Simply Spring Slimline Paper Pad to create a layer for the inside of the frame.

Eat Cake Birthday Card

  • Here’s a closeup of the cake all layered up.  Each layer is slightly thicker than the first.
  • Color the top of the candle using Tombow ART Markers*.
  • Add 3D Foam Mounting Squares* to the back of the cake and place it onto the bottom of the frame.

Eat Cake Birthday Card

  • Cut a small “Happy Birthday” banner from the Rainbow Sprinkles Paper Pad and add to the top of the card.
  • A fun birthday card for any age.

Home Sweet Home Shadow Box

Home Sweet Home Shadow Box Frame

The Home Sweet Home Shadow Box was made with Eileen Hull’s

New Shadow Box Dies and Elements from Sizzix.

Home Sweet Home Shadow Box Frame

I used a combination of several of the new dies to make my Home Sweet Home Shadow Box.

The shadow box was die-cut using a thick kraft cardstock. (110 lbs.)

I added double-sided adhesive foam behind the house, grass, flowers, and sign to

make it dimensional. I used toothpicks cut and painted white behind the picket fence

and inserted them into tiny holes poked into the base of the shadow box.

Card Making with StyleTechCraft Vinyl

This month the StyleTechCraft Design Team was asked to use Polished Metal Vinyl

to create a project.  In the past several years, I’ve added StyleTechCraft vinyl

to almost every imaginable surface around my house.

I have used it on plates, glasses, coffee cups, vases, metal, wood and more.

But I often forget to use it to create cards.
