Do you have a stash of your mom’s vintage costume pearls lying around? Freshen them up and give them to her, restyled, for Mothers Day. This restyle project was inspired by a necklace spotted at Anthropologie with a price tag of $78. Make one yourself for just pennies. This is modeled after a collar necklace but with a twist.

Mothers Day fashion photo album for Grandma.

Using both my Cricut and my Cuttlebug mixed together I created a fashionable photo album as a gift for my mom. I will fill it with photos of the grand kids in time for Mother’s Day. The copper foil is embossed on with Cuttlebug using the Mary Ann embossing folder. The butterfly is cut on the Cricut using the Paper Lace cart and then embossed. The bling is added by using by Imaginisce irock and hot rocks.

Happy crafting xoxo


I am super excited and I know everyone else is too. Don’t lie – everyone wants to hear about the fairytale. So everyday this week it is a wedding feature. I love weddings – I cry at every one of them. I was checking out at Micheal’s craft store the other day and this was at the register. I didn’t buy one but ha super funny!


This girly girl gift idea is one that you will not want to wrap. It is made using Bazzill Basics paper and the Forever Young Cricut cartridge. I cut the girly silhouette on the Cricut in different sized layers and backed it with chipboard, added some bling and sprayed on some Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist. I have the silhouette resting on a simple wooden easel that I covered with a hot pink lace.

Then I used a scrabble tile, covered it in red Bazzill Basics paper and cut out a matching girly silhouette out of pink paper and glued those to the tile, I screwed in an eyelet and then added a silver plumbers chain. Gift complete! Now I have to go run and hide it so it will be a surprise for Christmas!

With the kids starting back to school you can finally catch up on that stack of Summer reading you thought you would get to. That means take some time to hand craft yourself a lovely bookmark to tuck into the stack of books. I made this one for the Creative Escape SWAPs that happened in Chandler, AZ over the weekend. I used Bazzill Basics Paper in White, Raven Black and Navajo Blue. For the embossing I used the Cuttlebug embossing folder called Typeset. For the Chair I used the Cricut Heritage Cartridge. Then I Razzel Dazzeled it up by gluing on a black button at the bottom and attaching three black hot rocks with my irock to the chair. For the step by step click here: Paper Bookmark How To
