Mrs Claus Christmas Card

Hey Deer Friends,


Good Evening, I hope you are having a fantastic weekend so far. I spent the morning going to yard sales with my Mom. We found some really good deals. : )

Yesterday, kicked off one week of Christmas in July Hallmark Movies. I just love watching all the Hallmark Christmas shows. I always look forward to seeing all the new ones in November and December.  So I figured it'd be cool to make a Christmas themed card, so we can think about cooler weather. I'm ready for it to cool down a bit!! How about you?? For this card, I used the file
Cutie Katoodles Mrs Claus Bear from Kadoodle Bug Designs.




I decided to mix some different Christmas pattern papers for this card. The red one I got in a little 6x6 stack last Black Friday. And the white one with Holly on it I got at a yard sale last summer for a nickel. I thought it fit well with her holly on the hat.


Below is a complete list of supplies and materials used to complete this project:
Paper Piecing.
KaDoodle Bug Files:  Cutie Katoodles Mrs Claus Bear
Cardstock:  Core'dinations & Kraft Cardstock from JoAnn's, Holiday Trimmings designer paper pack by Penny Black, The Paper Studio from Hobby Lobby, & Heidi Grace Designs Jolly & Bright Holly Stripe

Just Keep Spinning Card

Hey Deer Friends,


Good Evening, I hope you have all had a great 4th of July weekend with your family and friends!! Last weekend, we went to a family gathering we always do in the Summer. We eat and then the guys always shoot clay pigeons. Then, I got to see Fireworks on Monday and Tuesday night. 

Last week, I created a fidget spinner card from the new Just Keep Spinning File from Kadoodle Bug Designs.  I had a few requests for a tutorial on how to make the fidget actually spin, so I made another card with a picture tutorial. If I still didn't explain it well feel free to message me and I'll see if I can walk thru an explanation with you. : ) For this card, I used the new file
Just Keep Spinning from Kadoodle Bug Designs.




I just loved how Melissa made the title to me it looked kind of like graffiti, so I wanted the background to look kind of like spray paint. So to create the background I embossed it first with a light color powder. And then I colored over the top of all the embossing parts with the Green Spectrum Noir Marker.

 I put together the card base, title, the bear, and parts of the fidget spinner. In this picture above you will see the supplies I used to create the spinner part. I used thin glue dots, zig 2 way glue pen, red sticky tape, 2 pennies, 2 washers cut from paper and then a foam adhesive circle cut to a tiny size.

For the fidget spinner, there needs to be a hole in the middle. I used Cricut Design Space to slice the hole in the center and then I used the same black circles in the cut file and made them a little bit smaller so the fit right over the hole. You will need two of those paper "Washers." In the picture above I glued one of those washers on the front of the spinner and I glued the second washer on the back of the fidget spinner.

Here's a pic of the washer in the back. I also used a black marker around the inside edges of the holes so that the orange wasn't peaking thru.
In the pic above I used the glue dots. I put a glue dot on the back of a penny and then I stuck that penny on the card base. And then I put a glue dot on the back of the blue round part and then you will stick the penny to the back of that.
Now, the front of this spinner has the blue part and the penny is attached to just the blue circle part with the star. The penny is not glued down to the spinner it's just sitting in front of the spinner where its suppose to go. This picture you will see the foam adhesive is in the hole part. The adhesive part will stick to the penny that is just laying in the front. And that will attach the two pieces together by just that foam adhesive circle or a dimensional if you have it.

In this picture, I added some red sticky tape to the blue nonsticky side of my foam adhesive circle. Now, if you have a some Dimensionals that would probably be best because both sides are sticky. But if you don't have any like me, then you will want the red sticky tape to match the foam as closely as you can get it. After that you just place that sticky part of the fidget spinner to the penny that is already attached to the card. Then press Down. You might have to spin it a few times so that it gets used to spinning.


I hope I explained it clearly but if not please don't hesitate to ask any questions. : )

Fidget Spinner Card

Hey Deer Friends,


Good Evening, I hope you have all had a great week!! I hope you enjoyed the design teams coffee projects throughout the week. If you haven't already stop by Kadoodle Bug Designs Website and check out all the new Coffee files. They are so Stinkin Cute!!


Tonight, I want to show you a fun Fidget Spinner Card. This new file is perfect for all those that love fidget spinners. My nephew has ADHD and he just informed me last weekend that he now has 5 fidget spinners. He truly enjoys them!! I think he gets nervous if I'm holding them though because he only lets me hold it if I'm sitting down. Haha I guess he's afraid I'll drop them. My nephew's birthday is coming up in July, so I wanted to make a birthday card that had fidget spinners. For this card, I used the new file Just Keep Spinning from Kadoodle Bug Designs.

The card didn't go quite like I planned it to go. Originally, I wanted the fidget spinner to spin around in a circle, but I've never made a spinner card before and it wasn't spinning like it does on the videos. I'm thinking I needed to make the inner circle smaller or something. So, I decided to leave the card like it was and just make it spin in one spot in the center of the circle. I thought my nephew would get a kick over the fact that it actually spins.



Below is a complete list of supplies and materials used to complete this project:
Paper Piecing.
KaDoodle Bug Files:  Just Keep Spinning

Summer Coffee Card

Hey Coffee Loving Friends,

Grab a cup of Coffee and head on over and see all the wonderful projects everyone has come up with. Kadoodle Bug Designs is a Super Sponsor for the Hop. You can find some cut Coffee files over on their website http://kadoodlebugdesigns.com/shop/. While you are there pick up this weeks super cute coffee themed freebie!!


This morning I want to show you a cute Summer themed Coffee Card. I wanted it to look like the turtle was relaxing on the beach drinking a iced latte. For this card, I used a combination of three files Paradise Found, Kawaii Summer Drink, and Cutie Katoodles Lemonade Turtle from Kadoodle Bug Designs.


I love making scenes with the cards I make but my favorite happens to be tropical beach scenes. Who wouldn't want to be on the beach right now relaxing with a cold drink?!? For the turtle, I replaced the lemonade cup with the Kawaii Summer drink. I didn't put the orange slice on the side though because I thought it was to much for a coffee. Instead of lemons by her feet and in her hair bow I replaced that with the Coffee Beans.

Father's Day Card

Hey Deer Friends,

         I hope you all are having a great week!! I had a funeral to go to this week and I've been babysitting my nieces, so I'm delayed in getting my card posted.

Tonight, I want to show you a Father's Day card I made using the fishing bear freebie from last week. I really liked the bear and thought it'd be cute to make a big one as the Dad and a little one as the son.   For this card, I used a combination of two files Fishing Bear and Gone Fishing from Kadoodle Bug Designs.


I love making scenes with the cards and scrapbook pages I make. It's fun for me to add all the details into the creations. I guess that's the way my brain works because I just love details!!! When I created this I wanted the Dad and Son bear to be on a boat fishing. So I used the boat from the Gone Fishing file and then the woodgrain stamp to create a realistic boat. Then, I used some blue Nuvo Drops to create the ripples in the water. To finish it I added some cattails around the boat to complete the scene. : )


Below is a complete list of supplies and materials used to complete this project:
Paper Piecing
KaDoodle Bug Files:  Gone Fishing and Fishing Bear
Disney Classics Cricut Cartridge: Cattail
