Dress Form pin cushion

I recently joined a website named the Stampin' Dymonz Scrap Shack....everyone calls it the Shack....there is a wonderful Groups of gifted and talented Crafters over there! One very talented Crafter Lia of Scrapsation recently made a dress form pin cushion and it so cute...She was so sweet to shared here template for the dress form......several of the ladies over on the Shack have made them and I just had to try my hand at making one too!...since I sew it did not take me long at all! I really had a great time making this...so I decided that I would make few for Christmas this year and give them as presents..Yay......... here is my take on the dress form...details to follow later!

Tag Swap over on Scraps of Color (SOC)

Participated in another tag swap of on SOC...since I had so much fun doing the last one! This tag had a fall theme so I did it a little different....I embossed some of the leaves on it then distressed it and added some punched out leaves along with a dimensional acorn to it! I really love the way they turn out....I had to make 15 tags....Happy Crafting everyone

Cricut Craftroom! WooHoo

I have finally been granted access to the Cricut Craftroom! It does remind me of Design Studio just a little but is easier to navigate!  I was up and running in no time...it does help having the Gypsy and the Expressions 2 (E2).....when using the CCR I did use the help button a few times too....What did not help is that I was playing with it at 12:30 at night after being up since 6:30 that morning...Smile will have more updates once I have played with CCR some more....PS I did not receive an invite! (I was periodically trying to sign in each week to see if I was given access)...this last time it worked......How About That! Happy Crafting Everyone......

Yesterday I was invited to a fellow crafter's house and boy was I in for treat! Thank you! Lia of A Piece of My Scraps  who is such a talented crafter ...... Talk about an awesome Crafting room it was truly inspiring! She has the ideal set-up in her craft room...... there are pictures on her blog! Not only is her craft room really nice she is sooo talented and a real sweetheart! You can also see some of Lia's many crafting creations on her blog! Check it out at the above link.... I was in such awe of her scrap room and everything was so neatly stored I came home and started cleaning up my Crafting space! We shared ideas and talked about all types of crafts... like where the best places are to go shopping and get how to get great  bargains...from setting up your craft room to even where to get some really good bargains on fruit! It was simply the best! But not only did I hang out with Ms. Lia...... I also got a chance to hang out with one of my favorite crafters that I have finally had  the pleasure to meet about a week ago! She is another awesome and talented crafter......Ms. Terry of Tellen's Place Designs  she has great digi designs for sale(will be coloring one soon)....they are so cute!   Wow she is a wonderful person!

Another Swap over at Scraps of Color (SOC)

I have been involved in a few swaps over on SOC and having so much fun creating some really wonderful Crafty projects my latest one is making book markers this was a lot of fun! I did not have to buy any book markers I had some in my stash...Can you say the happy crafting dance...love when that happens. I knew that I wanted to put a phrase on the book marker and at first I was looking for something that had to do with reading! However, Michaels was having a sale on Tim Holtz's products of course I could not pass that up! I found the neatest phrase and knew that it was the one...I distressed all my book markers with the some distressing ink by Tim Holtz (tea dye) and then I sprayed Glimmer mist which is hard to see on the pictures ....I also used one of the decorative stamp off of the same group of stamps by Tim Holtz for the bottom of the book marker. At the top I used a stamp from a different stamp set. Then I took the book markers to the School Box store and had them laminate them which is 0.25 a foot...what a deal! Here is the finished product....
