It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

Hi Everyone! I made this project using a sock insert that came in some of my daughters socks. You can see it still has a nice little tag to hang it with. When I saw the insert, I knew that it would be come a cute Christmas decoration. The adorable snow bird is from the E.A.D Designs Christmas Friends Rub ons and the sentiment is from Christmas Sentiments 2. The holiday rub-ons make it so quick and easy to create something festive! Emily from E.A.D Designs even has them ON SALE for you today! Start getting's not too late!

Cutest Monster EVER!

I might be a little bit bias but I think this little guy is too cute for words! I made this card for two challenges this week. I took the heart and color scheme from this weeks Etsy Inspired Challenge store (sponsored by Torendi this week!) and the sketch is from week #15 over at Get Sketchy.

One thing I love about the E.A.D vinyl is that you can paper piece with it, which happens to be the bonus Challenge at Get Sketchy this week! The vinyl is so durable, it just works perfectly!

Ink: CTMH watermelon and black
Other: thickers from POP, glue, 3D dots, cardstock

Lots of E.A.D News!

Next month I will be having a small crafting night at my home to make some holiday tags, so I thought I better get some ideas out of my head and onto paper. These tags were SO fast and simple to make with some E.A.D Designs Rub-ons. I cut the tags on my cricut, black ink, stamps, ribbon and rub-ons. That's it! The white rub ons are from Christmas Sentiments 2 and the mint are snowflakes!

Dont' forget that E.A.D Designs is also have a contest for a new tag line! Winner gets a $50 gift certificate! PLAY ALONG HERE!

Ok, and lastly but so excitedly, I'm happy to tell you about the new Torendi EXCLUSIVE E.A.D Designs Rub-ons! Below is just one of the 4 rub-ons available for purchase in the store. Please go on over to the Torendi blog to see them all!

Sketchy Thursday!

This week Sketchy Thursdays is sponsored by TORENDI! The Torendi DT was luckily enough to get to see the fun new sketch early and create along with the Sketchy Thursdays DT! We hope you can play along too for a fun torendi prize! Please go to the Sketchy Thursdays blog to see the sketch and details. Here is my take on it using photos of Alice's first Christmas.

Using the new sketch and some E.A.D Designs Rub ons this layout was SUPER FAST to create! I used Christmas Sentiments 2 (ON SALE NOW) in white for my title and accents. I also snuck in an E.A.D. bracket rub on as well. All the paper is GCD Sudios Party It UP!

Stay tuned to the Torendi blog for info on some Torendi EXCLUSIVE E.A.D Designs Rub-ons! (let me just tell you they are they are soooo Kawaii) And don't forget that the Torendi Sale is still going on until the 16th! :D

My wisdom tooth removal went well and I am just a bit sore. I'm hoping that the swelling will stay away, but we shall see. Thank you for all the kind words here and on facebook. :)

My Homemade Felt Embellishments!

Kelly Marie over at Lawn Fawn Cards shared a cute card with a little felt bird on it today, so I decided to share my little felties as well. Mind you, sometimes I think I craft just to amuse myself, but nothing wrong with that right?? ;)

Love these Cloudies!

I felt like I hadn't posted in a while and that made me sad, so I made this card to brighten my day. I just love these Bam Pop! Cloudies stamps! I made this card for the Etsy Inspired Challenge. This weeks shop has some adorable brightly colored plushies, you should check it out here! I let the colors of the "toys" inspire my card. I also will be submitting it to the Paper Crafts Magazine "Hey there Sunshine" call, fingers crossed! See all their current calls on this blog post. Oh and yes, you can move the arrow on the little spinner card! :)
