DT Post by Kate - Yeti Treats!


Hello friends!  This is Kate from Small Bits of Paper with a quick and easy project to share with you.


After cutting and assembling my gable box, I simply used my paper cutter to cut the panels for all four sides.  Then I used some of the fabulous products from My Craft Spot to dress things up a bit!  I stamped the white layers with footprints from Stamping All Around Spring.


The tag was cut with Tiny Tags metal dies.  The "treats" is from the Tiny Tags 3 stamp set and I used Small Alphabet metal dies to cut the letters for "yeti".  To secure the tag to the box, I used some purple jute string.  Have you seen the wonderful variety of colours of jute string at the My Craft Spot Shop?  I love them! 


Our challenge this week at My Craft Spot is Black & White plus one other colour.  Be sure to check out yesterday's post for some more inspiration - and to link up your own creation too!

Have a wonderful day!

DT Post by Gwen - Cute Treat Hugger!


Hi everyone, this is Gwen from This and That by Gwen with a fun little treat hugger.

I love these little nugget huggers, they are so fun!  This one is from the Nugget Huggers Spring set from SVG Cutting Files, there are 3 different ones in the set.  


The sentiments on the front and on the chocolate are from the Tiny Tags 3 stamp set from My Craft Spot. They just fit this little flower so perfectly.

DT Post by Kate - Yeti card!


Welcome to My Craft Spot!  This is Kate from Small Bits of Paper and I'm so pleased to be sharing a fun card I made for a friend.  We always joke around yetis and mustaches - so I made her a card with a yeti with a mustache!


I used Campin' Critters and Mustaches & Glasses to create the yeti. I used the Fancy Edges metal dies set to cut the purple layers at the bottom of my card, embossing the top layer for added dimension.


The sentiment is from Stamping All Around Spring - as are the footprints.  (They're supposed to be for sweet baby feet but they go well with the Big Foot idea too!!)  I used three different dies from the Tiny Doilies metal dies set for my sentiment as well.  I finished my card by adding some Perfectly Purple sequins. 

Thanks for visiting!  Have a wonderful day!

DT Post by Sherrie - Cute Puppy Bday card!


Good Morning Everyone!

This is Sherrie from Sherrie Scraps with Passion with a fun birthday card to share with you today! I used My Craft Spot's Banner Sentiments and Birthday Wishes stamp sets when creating this card.


I started with a white card base and followed by layering panels of paper from my stash. I then layered a Spellbinders Floral Oval which I embossed with the Papaya Halves folder. I cut this cute little puppy in a present from a file that I purchased from  Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbon called Birthday Critters with my Cameo.
 Isn't it super cute?


I popped it with foam tape onto the oval for some dimension. I added a banner using the Ribbon Banner~Wavy metal die and stamping the sentiment with the Banner Sentiments stamp set.

In the upper right corner I used the new Tiny Doilies 2 metal die and then cut a 1 1/4 " circle for the center of it from the George & Basic Shapes cartridge. The sentiment is stamped with the Birthday Wishes  stamp set. I topped it off with a fun double bow using ribbon from my stash.

For more information on this card, please visit my blog at:

Have a super day and thanks for stopping!

DT Post by Ally - Birthday Shaker card!


Hello crafty friends! This is Ally from Rock Paper Cricut, here today to share a couple of fun birthday card ideas. I LOVE the shaker card trend going on, and decided to give it a try using My Craft Spot stamps and metal dies. 


I used the Scrapping Life Cards metal dies set for the rounded corner layer. I've had lots of fun creating cards with My Craft Spot's metal dies sets. The polaroid die is also from the Scrapping Life Cards metal dies set. I added a pinch of Tickled Pink, Caribbean, and Lemon Meringue sequins. The *Happy Birthday* sentiment is from the Simply Sentiments stamp set.


I changed things up with this birthday card, and went for an orange hot pink color combination. I used Tickled Pink and Orange Creamsicle sequins. I finished my card with a little twine bow.  I followed a tutorial by Nikki from Scrappin' Navy Wife's blog-HERE on how to actually go about putting the shaker card together. Both cards are A2 sized cards.
Have you tried shaker cards? I'm hooked! 

Have a great day!
Ally

Easter - Because of Him


I hope all of you are having a beautiful Easter Sunday!  As I look back on some of the events of this past year in my family . . . my Father-in-law passing away and my sister battling cancer . . . .  Jesus' life, and especially His resurrection, have given me much needed hope and comfort.

In July it will be one year since we found out that my little sister had breast cancer.  We have cried many tears together and alone and have prayed for her daily.  I don't get to see her as much as I would like since she lives in Texas and I live in Utah.  But, I had the wonderful opportunity of staying with her and her family to help out for a week while she had Chemo.  She has 4 little ones and I enjoyed spending that time getting to know them better!  It has been a difficult year for her and her family, but this week she finishes the last of her radiation treatments.  Yay!  She is an amazing lady and I love her very much!


Produced by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints

John 20:11-17

11  But Mary stood without at the sepulchre weeping: and as she wept, she stooped down, and looked into the sepulchre,
12  And seeth two angels in white sitting, the one at the head, and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain.
13  And they say unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? She saith unto them, Because they have taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have laid him.
14  And when she had thus said, she turned herself back, and saw Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus.
15  Jesus saith unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thou? She, supposing him to be the gardener, saith unto him, Sir, if thou have borne him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away.
16 Jesus saith unto her, Mary. She turned herself, and saith unto him, Rabboni; which is to say, Master.
17 Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.

The Savior lives and the resurrection is real.

Happy Easter!

DT Post by Karen - Adorable Puppy Dog Birthday!


Happy Saturday, everyone! This is Karen from Kaleidoscopic Sparkles to quickly share a birthday card with you! I pray everyone has a blessed Easter tomorrow. :o)

While not an Easter project, it is actually a perfect time to share this! It is made to bring love, light, and hope to a child suffering far more than he ever should. Whimsically designed, yet filled with healing divine light.

What little boy doesn't love a sweet puppy, right? :o)


This cutie pie is a cut file from KaDoodle Bug Designs. I used bright and cheerful papers from Doodlebug Designs, surrounding the pup with a paw print frame from the Silhouette Online Store. I wanted it to be like he was frolicking through the adorable tree-filled park. :o)


I love the circular sentiments Kimberly offers and Stamping All Around Spring is one of my favorites! I paired the fun birthday greeting with one of the gorgeous metal dies from Tiny Doilies 2. For a final festive touch, I topped the puppy's party hat with a pom made from Maraschino twine. I resisted the urge to add a plethora of sparkles since this is for a little boy, but I did sneak in some sparkling Core Couture paper for the paw prints and twinkling eyes. :o) 

Nestled beneath the celebratory doggie bone are five little hearts, cut out with the versatile Scrapping Life Cards Metal Dies. It's fun finding places to tuck a little extra love within projects. :o)

For further information about this card and its precious recipient, zip on over to my blog! Thank you for visiting and have a Happy Easter! :o)
