Mother's Day Purse Tote Bag - MSC dt

Hi there my crafty friends!!  I had a moment this weekend to get a head start on some Mother's Day projects and wanted to pop in and share my creations with you.  I created these Purse Tote Bags to fill with some goodies for both my mom and my mother in law.  

I used the My Scrap Chick "Trendy Tote Bag and Purse" file to cut these out.  The patterned paper is from Joanns.  I wanted to add a tag to the tote bags so I used another file from My Scrap Chick -  "Rubber Ducky Tag"  which is my favorite file lately to use for making tags. 

I used adhesive velcro for the closure so that the bag could be opened and reused.

I had the perfect sentiment from an older Cardz TV Stamps' set to add to my tags!!  Thanks so much for stopping by today!!  I hope I have inspired you with some ideas for Mother's Day or another special occasion!

Springtime Thank You card

April showers bring May flowers (so they say!!)  Well, if that is the case we should have a ton of flowers here in May!!  I decided to play along with the Craftin Desert Divas Monthly Mood Board Challenge and also needed to create a thank you card and this is what I came up with -

I drew my inspiration from the spring like flowers in the Photo inspiration - 

It was nice to be able to envision what spring should look like and create it - a much needed distraction from the constant gloomy, gray skies of the Pacific Northwest this year.  Hugs!!  and thanks for stopping by!!

Spring Birdhouses - My Scrap Chick DT

Happy Wednesday my crafty friends!!  I have a fun spring inspired craft project to share with you today!!  We keep getting glimpses of spring here in the Pacific Northwest and then we get even more glimpses of rain!!  So I needed to create something to remind me that sunnier spring days were on the horizon and this is what I came up with -

I used two different My Scrap Chick files to create these - 


These birdhouse boxes can be used for a treat box too!!  I am probably going to use mine for decoration only but nice to have the option on hand!!  Here's another look -

2017 Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Thought it would be fun to join in the "coffee" fun this time around.  I LOVE coffee!!  In fact, I have a cup of it in my hand as I type up this blog post ;)!!

 I created not one, but two!! cards for the linkup - must have had some good coffee huh?!

For my first card I used a digital stamp from Craftin Desert Divas for my image.  The designer paper is from Doodlebug.  

The second card I made uses a sentiment and image from the Simon Says Stamp set "Coffee and Tea".  The designer paper is also from Doodlebug.  
It's not too late to join in the 2017 Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!!

Happy 1st Day of Spring!! - MSC dt

Happy 1st Day of Spring!!  Hope you are having some spring like weather where you are - we had a beautiful sunny day yesterday but today is back to the normal rainy day of the Pacific Northwest.  After too many years of remodeling our house, I finally feel like I am at a place where I can start decorating.  I bought some cute little table top decorations at Joanns yesterday and that inspired my creativity for the project I am sharing with you today -

I used the "Carrot Patch Box" to create the carrots and fence box.  I created the grass border around the bottom edge of the fence using the "Easter Title and Bunnies" set.  I finished off by using some ladybug stickers, a bluebird sticker and ribbon, twine and buttons from my stash.  My sentiment is from an older Cardz TV Stamps set.  I decided to glue my carrots into the base since this is for decoration and not for treat holding ;)

Once again, here's a look at the My Scrap Chick files I used - 

Thanks for stopping by today!!  Happy Spring!!!

Rosettes on a Stick - MSC dt

TGIF!!  and the sun finally peeked out at us here in the Willamette Valley!!  Today I have a project to share with you that I created for My Scrap Chick.  I created a couple of "Rosettes on a Stick" or what are also sometimes referred to as "Lollipop Cards".

To create my rosettes I used My Scrap Chick's "Straight Edge Rosettes".  I used the file for the medium sized rosettes and the one that is 4 inches.  The set comes with several cutting files to create small, medium and large rosettes in 3 different sizes each.  The best part about these rosettes is that you tie them together with string - super easy!!  There is a pdf included with instructions on how to do this - make sure you read this first before trying to create these :-) !!

I also used a few cut files from the "Rubber Ducky Tag" to create the scalloped and plain circle layers.  I used a few stamped images I had in my stash leftover from #thedailymarker30daychallenge.  I popped my stamped images up with foam tape to create more dimension.  I used ribbon, buttons and twine from my stash and hot glued those on.  The straws were purchased in the Easter section from WalMart last year.  

For the back side of my rosettes I cut a large circle out (Rubber Ducky Tag again) in a color coordinating cardstock.  I then did a print and cut using the "Birthday Round Tags".  I chose to leave the center of the tag plain thinking that perhaps I would write in a name of the recipient and add them to a gift bag for a upcoming birthday present.  

I had so much fun making these and you can bet you will see some more of these in my crafty future!!  Thanks for stopping by today!!  Here is a recap of the My Scrap Chick products I used -

Thinking of You - MSC dt

 Hey there!!  Today I am sharing over on the My ScrapChick blog and I have a card to share with you.  I made this card specifically as a get well card but it could be used for many different occasions.

I popped my purple flower up with some foam to create some dimension on my card.  
I even decorated the inside of my card with a flower :-) 
I used the following My ScrapChick files to create my card  -
