I am hosting Bunco at my house this month and I thought it would be fun to make some cute dice boxes to put the prize money in.  They turned out soooo cute.  I used the square box from Cricuts Tags, Bags, Boxes and More cartridge.  I cut them out at fit to page.  I than used George and Basic Shapes cartridge to make the black dots.  I cut them out at 1/2".  I used a real die to determine placement of all dots.  For the little tags on top I used a fiskars tag punch and than stamped on the bunco tally pad stamp that I bought from Creative Time with Emma's stamp set "Game Night".  I LOVE this stamp set.  The dice really came out so cute!

File Folder Organizer

I had seen a mini album tutorial made with a file folder and so I put one together.  I showed it to a friend of mine and she thought it would be cool if it was designed to be a mini planner.  So I took the basic tutorial I found and revamped it.  I LOVE the way it turned out!!!  I found the tutorial here.  My friend wanted an envelope to put receipts and returns.  For the "receipts" I used a return envelope that came in a bill.  I covered it with scrap paper.  I used a template and made a coin envelope for the "returns" envelope.   I used velcro tabs on the envelopes for easy closure and opening.  She also wanted a "notes" and "to do" lists.  I created these in photoshop and printed them out.  I used cardstock as a backing and stapled them together.  Than I covered the top with scrap paper.  I added a mini calendar on one of the pockets (which I created in Photoshop and printed) as well as a place for some post-it-notes.  I also added a mini pocket and some decorated paper clips.  These are for special things that need to be put somewhere so they don't get lost.

Cute Envelope Mini Album

I found a tutorial on you tube for a really cute mini album using 6x9 envelopes.  I took the idea and changed it up a bit.  My daughter, Katelynn, is going to give it to her friend for her birthday.  I really think it turned out so cute.  I'm very happy with it and I know the friend will love it.  It was so easy to make and I love the extra pockets for either journaling or more photos.

New Blog

Because I'm really getting into my crafting and participating in more blog hops I wanted to create a blog to showcase all of my fun craft and scrapbooking projects.  I really hope to post on a regular basis as I complete a project.  My goal is to get to a place where I actually post short videos on how I created my project.  For now I will try to detail in each post the steps I took to complete the projects.  I'm very excited to begin this new venture!
