Thanks for visiting!

Welcome! This is the place where I share my artsy and crafty projects. I am an evolving artist these days ... finding myself enjoying less of the cards and mini albums that I have made for years, and turning to art journaling and more artistic endeavors. I have always enjoyed some craft or other, and some of my earliest memories of my mother helping me make paper dolls and other crafts. I am now in my 60's and finding myself more passionately enjoying creating beautiful things and learning new skills and techniques and products.

While you are here I hope you will find inspiration and ideas for making your own projects, however any images or projects you find here are my personal property and should not be used for your own monetary gain, or for contests or challenges. Thank You!


Life In 3-D for Just Buggin'

The challenge for Just Buggin' this week is to make a three dimesional project using your Cricut.  You know, like a purse or box or bag.  Luckily I had just finished these cute little Valentines favor bags and knew they would be just right for this challenge!

And the best part is I decorated them using scraps and freebies from my stash!

Product Info:
  • The base cardstock is DCWV from the 'pastels' cardstock stack.
  • The red cardstock is from just a bit I had in my paper scraps box, and I have no clue who it is by or where I got it, but it has a neat 'kraft paper' look to it.
  • The patterned paper is Fancy Pants, but it was just a couple of scraps,so I don't remember the name for that design.  I measured the bag and cut this paper to fit, and inked the edges a bit with a dark pink ink pad.
  • White organza ribbon from my stash.  The bag has a small slot on one side, so I fed one end of the ribbon through the slot and tied the tag on in a small bow.
  • Pink rosebuds are freebies that were on a package I received.  I used the wire on the rosebud to wind it around the handle of the bag.
Cricut Info:
  • Bag was cut using Tags, Bags, Boxes & More using 'giftbg'
  • Tag was cut using Tag, Bags, Boxes & More using 'scltop-h' using the 'hole' option

And that was it!  They are very easy to make and decorate, and I love how cute they look!  Just right for a few small pieces of candy or even a tiny gift . . . like, jewelery for instance!

Blessings folks!  Becky
