{Clean and Simple} – Cross

Hello everyone!!!  It’s CASology Tuesday!!  We are back with another Clean and Simple Cue Card just for you!!

Take a look at my card:

For this card, I used a retired Top Dog Dies Cross die pared with Freckled Fawn Black Script Puffy Alpha stickers.

Here’s how I created this card:

Die cut the cross die out of white and black cardstock.

Adhere them together using Tombow Mono Liquid Adhesive.

Adhere the cross to the card base using foam tape.

Add Freckled Fawn Black Script Puffy Alpha stickers to the right side of the cross to finish it off.

Easy as 1-2-3-4!!!

What do you think?

National Sticker Day 2018

photo source


Hello everyone!!  It’s National Sticker Day 2018!! Yes, they have a national sticker day, LOL!!

How many of you use stickers and what for?  I use stickers in my planner/journal.  Stickers make the pages come alive. I love the bold colors and the big bold sentiments you find in stickers books.

Today, I’m going to show you some stickers I printed and cut using my Cricut Maker!

Let’s Take a Look:


For these stickers I used printable vinyl to create these super cute stickers.

I choose this design in design space and followed the directions.  Designs space prompts you to print with your pinter first then you bring it back to the machine and it cut the stickers out for you.

Take another look:

I love how easy this was to do and I created these whenever I want to.

What are you doing for National Sticker Day?  Do you create your own stickers or buy them from a store.  Please let me know.

Decorated Mother’s Day Frame

Hello, everyone!!! I’m here today to show you a how I decorated a Mother’s Day frame for my mom.

Do you buy or create gifts to give to your Mom on Mother’s Day? I love creating gifts for my mother. She gets so tickled pink when she gets something that was created just for her.

This year is no different. My mother loves getting photos of all of her children in one picture. That rarely happens so when I went through my photos on my camera, I found one that she doesn’t have and would totally love.

 Let’s take a look:

I used Deflecto’s 8 x 10 Clear Frame for this gift! I went through my scrapbook stash to find the perfect embellishments to personalized the frame.  Once I found the perfect embellishments from Simple Stories Love Adore Kit, I went straight to work.

Here’s how I created it:

 1. Before entering the photo into the frame, I placed it down on my table mat that has lines.

2. Using the lines, I lined up the letters for the sentiment on the top and bottom of the frame.

3. Once all of the stickers are neatly placed on the frame, I added the photo to the frame.

 My mother is going to love this picture frame. This photo was taken four years ago when my younger brother was graduating from high school. Next weekend he is graduating from college, so we get to take another group photo. Depending on how it looks, I might swoop this photo for that one, LOL!
So what do you think? Will you decorate your picture frames with stickers in this manner? I would love to hear from you.

Top Dog Dies – Insta Mini Wedding Brag Book

Hello everyone!!  Its Top Dog Die Wednesday!!  I’m here today showcasing Top Dog Dies Heart Mini Album Die!!

TDD Heart Mini Album DieThis die is amazing.  Its so easy to use and you could mass produce mini albums/brag books with no problem.

As you know, these days easy is what I need and this project fit perfectly in my schedule.

Take a look at the mini brag book I created:

Just Married Brag Book

Yes, its a mini wedding brag book perfect for a new bride to show off her wedding at anytime.

Lets look at some of the inside pages:

Mini Brag Book 1

Mini book 3

Mini Brag Book 4

Mini Brag Book 5

Mini Brag Book 6

Mini Brag Book 9

Mini Brag Book 10

Here is how I created this mini brag book in 3 easy steps:

1. I used Top Dog Dies Heart Mini Album Die to cut 6 pages of some retired Stampin’ Up! DSP.

2. I punch 3 holes on the side panel of the book and add 3 retired Making Memories Mini Silver Brads to bind the pages together.

3. I added some random stickers I had left over from years ago to each page of this book.

That’s it!  No stamping or anything fussy!

So I know your asking, what size pictures will fit in this mini brag book?

I have the solution for that.

Check out my new Instax Mini 8 Camera!!  I love the size and the sizes of the pictures.  They are Instagram perfect pictures. This camera comes in many different colors: black, blue, yellow, pink and white.

The pictures are instant so you can snap and add to your book all in one swoop! You can’t beat this!
