Crafting With Cristina Guest Designer

Hey Everyone!! 
Today I am the guest designer over at Crafting with Cristina!! I am so excited!! I have been waiting for this day for a long time. My challenge this week was to make a recycled project. I had heard of things being made with toilet paper rolls and decided to go ahead and try myself. 

Here is my project that I made:
 Front Cover using Ribbon from my Stash, Tag from Twinkle Toes cut at 1.50".
Tag from Twinkle Toes cut at 1.50" and Bee from Create A Critter cut at 2"
 Butterfly cut at 2 3/4 using Create A Critter
Tags cut from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More on pg 89 @ 4".

All the paper is from a new Peeps stack I got at Craft Warehouse, Sentiments are Sweet Cheeks Stamps by ME using Spring In Bloom. I used 1/8" eyelets and the Orange rings are also from the same line as the paper. 

The paper is cut at 6 x 4 and then wrapped around a flattened toilet paper roll. I noticed some rolls are different so you should measure your own for the project. 

Now, go ahead and join in the challenge fun!! Head on over to Crafting with cristina and join in on the fun!! Link up your project!

Love You A Latte

Hello All,
I made this card the other day while my grandma was here. We actually both made one. I just found that paper at Craft Warehouse and has to use it. I just found out that our Craft Warehouse is closing and today starts the close out. I am so beyond bummed out about this since it is my Go-To store. I went there after work to look and I left right after I walked in. The line was all the way around the store and I couldn't even move to look around. Guess I know where I'll be going tomorrow =)

Thank You Card and Grandma's Visit

This weekend was a CRAZY one!!! LOL!! It was so much fun though. My grandma surprised everybody and drove down here from Spokane on Thursday. I was so excited when she got here! I have not seen her in 6 months. It is hard, she is my best friend! I love her so much!! She supports me in whatever I do and means the world to me. 

I made her and her boyfriend breakfast on Friday and then we went to Craft Warehouse and then got together with the whole family on Friday night for dinner. We went our to breakfast on Saturday and then hung out at my house and made cards for the day then went to Burgerville for dinner. I had so much fun with them. I will be going up to visit them soon (hopefully)!!! I am going to show you some things I made this weekend...

This is a Calendar that we made, It is all on a magnets and on a piece of tin. I have had all the pieces to make this for a while. I just hadn't gotten around to it. 

While going shopping at Craft Warehouse and Michaels, Grandma got a Cricut Expression from her boyfriend and she bought all of my stuff also. So I made her this card...

This is a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card
She bought me the background stamp and I colored it with my BIC permanent markers. The tag is cut from Twinkle Toes and the ribbon is light yellow and from the Dollar Tree. The sentiment is from Sweet Cheeks Stamps by ME using Spring in Bloom.

Thanks for visiting today!!! Come back on Wednesday and I am a guest designer!! Cant wait to share with you!!
