4th of July Wreath

My daughter-in-law has been telling me for over a year that I should put my scrapping skills to use on a wreath.  Well I finally did, and I am pleased with the results.

styrofoam wreath
SCAL & and a patriotic file from SVG Cuts
Patriotic themed paper and cardstock from JoAnn and Hobby Lobby
Wired Ribbon from Wal-Mart
Various Embellishments

Did you notice the watermark!  Aymee did that for me, and she edited my photos.  Isn't she awesome!  I love it!  

That's all for me today.  I did make a couple of robots for Carter today.  He wants me to take a pic of them and print it so he can add it to his "rememory" book!  Lol  How cute is that!!! 

Thanks for visiting my blog, and do come back really soon.       Happy Scrappin'     Carol  :)

Carter's 4th of July Wreath

My (awesome, adorable, creative, hilarious, loving, etc...) grandson, Carter has made the cutest wreath.  It is made from an old Cricut mat.  I cut out the shape, and purchased the items he attached to it from the $1 bin at JoAnn.  He placed the items where he thought they looked good, then I added some Helmar glue and he adhered them on the mat.  Next, he decided to put some rhinestones on it.  So, he glued them on with a glue stick.  Then he wanted a bow, so I tied it and glued it on with hot glue.  The last step was to add a little stickles to the USA sticker.     As you will see, it looks really good!  I am so proud of him!!!!!

Carter also chose the letter stickers to put on the "F"!

Thanks for checking in with me today, hope to see you back soon.

RHS Tigers Baseball Book

I have been working on this boardbook sporadically for the past 3 weeks.  When I am designing these books, I gather information about the individual in which the book represents.  This can take a little time, especially if you have never seen the person or had any contact whatsoever.  It's an interesting process, and one that I really enjoy.  I want my books to "tell a story" because it makes them more personal (special).  As you will see, I put a lot of detail into my work.  I hope you enjoy seeing my latest creation.  If you would like for me to design a book for you, just leave me a message in the comment section with your email addy so I may contact you. 
Materials List
SCAL and Cricut Machine
Various Papers and Ribbon with a baseball/Black & Gold RHS Tiger theme from Hobby Lobby
Zutter Bind-it-All 
Baseball embellishments (Hobby Lobby)
Helmar Glue
Bling (Round and Square Rhinestones)


Sorry the pix don't look too nice.  I don't have a photo program.  Also, as you can tell, the last pic should be the third one.  I'm not sure how that happened.  LOL

Thanks for taking time to visit and please check back soon.  Carter has made a beautiful 4th of July wreath, and you need to see it.  I'll try to post pix of it tomorrow.

Sign for my Scrappy Room Door

I previously mentioned that I give away nearly everything I make, so I am very proud of myself for making a sign for my scrappy room door.  I have wanted one for quite some time, so without further adieu:

I entered this project in the challenge at Berry71Bleu.  The challenge is to use green and purple.  My green is more of a blue green, but it looks really good with all the other colors in the sign.  If you get a chance, please drop by Berry71Bleu to see the work of some fantabulous scrappers!

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Scrappin'           Carol  :)

Cheerleader Personalized Water Thermos/Bottles

Hey and Whew!  It's HOT!!!!  We are under a heat advisory here in North Alabama.  I feel so sorry for the people who have to work outdoors in this weather, and it is rough on children who want to play outside (ie... Carter).  Momaw Carol won't let him stay out too long nor let him be out during the hottest portion of the day.  I do keep him well hydrated.

I personalized 12 of these cute little water bottles a couple weeks ago, but they were a gift for the girls (cheerleaders); therefore I didn't post a pic until now.  The mom who was giving these as a little gift for cheercamp presented them yesterday.  I hope they like them and enjoy them for a long time.  Best
Wishes Girls!  I hope you have a great week!

Yesterday after spring cleaning a couple of rooms, I designed and constructed a candy bar cover, and 2 different mint covers for Carter.  I told him that when school was out I would make some things for him, so I did.  He was so sweet!  He really appreciates and loves the "little goodies" momaw makes.

I am also working on some books.  One of which is ready except for personalizing a baseball shirt.  Hopefully, I can get the info I need and finish it by tomorrow at least. 

Have a great day, and Happy Scrappin"
