DT Post by Gwen - Star quilt pattern!

Hi everyone, this is Gwen from This and That by Gwen sharing a fun card.

I love the colors of this card, they are so warm and inviting.  This is the LeMoyne Star quilt pattern. The star was cut from the Art Philosophy cartridge and then cut apart to make the diamond shapes.  Every other diamond shape is popped up. 

The tag was made with the Ribbon Banners - Straight metal dies (I just cut the end off of it) and stamped with the new Fall Leaves stamp set, both from My Craft Spot.

Have a great day!

Customer Spotlight - Beth from Beth's Beauties!

Hello, crafty friends! This is Karen from Kaleidoscopic Sparkles, fluttering in to leave some customer love with another Customer Spotlight! You can never spread too many warm fuzzies, right? :o)

This time our spotlight shines upon an adorable gift box created by Beth of Beth's Beauties. Its fun design captured my attention and when I recognized the precious sentiment as Kimberly's, I knew we had our next feature. :o)

Beth created this darling sneaker gift box, which filled my sappy heart with joy.

Isn't it fabulous? She made it extra sweet by opting for a baby theme! Precious little baby is from My Craft Spot's Tiny Tags stamp set. Beth's paper is gorgeous and I adore her use of the beautiful twine! Plus, it's a gift box so she can tuck sweet treats or a little baby gift inside. :o)

Tiny baby socks would be so fun inside, too!

We love seeing Kimberly's lovely products in action! Thank you for inspiring us, Beth! :o) Have a blessed day, everyone!

DT Post by Karen - Fun shaker card!

Hello, crafty friends! This is Karen from Kaleidoscopic Sparkles with a sweet shaker card to share with you. :o)

A few days ago I posted a card made for a sick little girl named Lily to help her smile through challenging days. As I was contemplating what to do next for her, several colors of Kimberly's sequins were staring me down! I had no choice but to make a shaker for her sweet little hands to play with. :o)

This card began with sequins in sprightly shades of Caribbean, Perfectly Purple, and Tickled Pink... 

...and I want Lily to find joy amidst her dark and cloudy days. So I tucked them within a puffy cloud, which is embossed for texture and lightly inked in blue.

Along with loving purple, she loves Disney. The darling Disney sweetheart is a cut file from Treasure Box Designs (We're All Ears). I dressed her in Lily's favorite color and used Black Licorice Traditional twine for the shoelaces and Mickey balloon string.

Sometimes the simplest sentiments say it all, don't they? :o) Believe is from the Ornate Labels- Christmas stamp set. I used the Ribbon Banners- Wavy metal die set as its base for an extra touch of whimsy and height. The little flowers in the grass were made with the Flowers- Daisy metal die set.

For further details about my card, zip on over to my blog. :o) Thank you for visiting My Craft Spot and I wish you a beautiful day!

DT Post by Saundra - Happy little moments!

Hi There! Saundra here from Luv Scrapping Together!

Today I have a fun little camera box to share with you.

I made this fun box using a the Camera Trio file from My Scrap Chick and used My Craft Spot products to give it just the right touch.

The front of my camera is stamped with a sentiment from the Scrapping Life Everyday stamp set and embellished the camera with a rolled flower and leaves from  Flowers - Daisy dies. Some Natural Jute Twine was added, as well as, a few pearls and brads from my stash.

This box could be filled with some treats or some fun insta-gram photos.

DT Post by Karen - Bear Hugs!

Happy Saturday, crafty friends! This is Karen from Kaleidoscopic Sparkles with a sweet little card to share with you!

Most of my projects are for charitable purposes and I can always count on Kimberly to have the perfect sentiments, regardless of the recipient's age or difficult circumstance. This one is for a very sick little girl who loves purple. I wanted to send her some teddy bear hugs. :o)

The precious sentiment is from Tiny Tags 3, which is cut out with the coordinating Tiny Tags metal dies. I love the bear(y) greetings on that set! :o) I tucked it beneath Buttercup crinkle ribbon, chosen to reflect ruffles of sunshiny love.

The scalloped bases for the teddy bear stamps are from the Tiny Doilies 2 metal die set. I used the new Fancy Edges- Halloween metal die set to add the stitched design to the top of the middle panel. The beautiful borders were made with the floral die in the Fancy Edges 2 set.

For more information on my card, flutter on over to my blog! Thank you for visiting My Craft Spot and have a blessed weekend! :o)

Guest Designer - Sherrie - Drippy goo treat box!

Hi Everyone!

This is Sherrie from Sherrie Scraps with Passion and I am super excited to be Guest Designing today here at My Craft Spot!

If you follow my blog, you know I am a HUGE fan of My Craft Spot! I have always loved how easy it is to create with her stamps and dies!

Today, I am sharing a fun Halloween treat box idea using some fun new products from

I found this fun 3D Ghost treat box at the Silhouette Store~Design #64969 and cut it on my Cameo. The pattern papers are from Bo Bunny and the solid colored papers are from my scrap bin.

The black panel was embossed with the skeleton scroll folder and adhered in place. I added a drippy gooey border and then added glossy accents for a fun look. 

The cute ghost was inked around the edges with black memento and then spritzed with perfect pearl mist by Ranger.

The face is stamped with PK-691 Make a Monster Face set. I colored the eyes in using copics and added glossy accents. I stamped "boo" using My Craft Spot's new Batty For You stamp set.  The little bats are from the new Halloween Shapes metal die set.
Cute ha?

I filled a cello bag with yummy Halloween candy. I tied on a bow using Trendy Twine's Halloween Grape Licorice and Orange Licorice twine along with a small tag.
The tag is My Craft Spot's Speech Bubbles metal die and I stamped the sentiments using again the new Batty For You stamp set.

Thanks so much for having me Kimberly!
Have a wonderful day!

DT Post by Kate - Hot chocolate warms the heart!

Hello friends! This is Kate from Small Bits of Paper. Today I am sharing a fun little gift idea. Here in Central Ontario (Canada), the temperatures are certainly getting cooler and leaves are beginning to turn their glorious array of colours. Hot chocolate season is on its way!!

I started my project with the K-Cup cutting file from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons and then added a layered frame for my sentiment.

I chose to use the White Christmas stamp set for my treat box - both for the sentiment and for the snowflakes stamped with Versa Mark on my sentiment frame.

Once my box was assembled, I embellished it with some natural jute string and some little pearls.

Of course, I couldn't forget the hot chocolate itself for the inside, and tucked in a couple of cups of mint hot chocolate. Yum!

Thanks so much for visiting My Craft Spot today. Have a wonderful day!!

Halloween Tags

I like to take Halloween treats to a few of my friends during October.  These fun little tags will be perfect attached to treat bags!

MCS Supplies
Metal DiesHalloween Shapes (ghost), Fancy Edges - Halloween (spider web border), Ornate Labels

Don't you just love that spider web border?!

For the chalk effect, I first used Versamark watermark ink to stamp the sentiment.  Then, I sprinkled a fine white embossing powder over the sentiment and heat embossed.  You can see that I didn't get all of the embossing powder off, which is a fun effect.  I used a white ink pad that is a little older (less juicy) to ink the edges and then got some white ink on my finger to rub around here and there.

Have a great day!
