Personalized Insulated Cups

We have just finished our school year, and I sure do miss my students and their parents/guardians.  The students were very social, caring, close, and so full of life, and the parents/guardians were always willing to help and took an active interest in their child's education.  They were also very generous in expressing their thanks with awesome teacher appreciation gifts.  We had a great year, and I'm thankful I had the opportunity to be a small part of their lives. 

One of the projects I completed was a personalized cup for a majorette.  The mom purchased the cup at Wal-Mart, and I added the vinyl clip art (made by my daughter, southernbellescrapper - Aymee) using my SCAL and Cricut.  The font is Black Chancery.  I think it looks "cool!"     LOL

Aymee also took my pic and edited it with her photo software.  Thanks Aymee!  :)

I have more projects completed but can't post them until next week (they are gifts). 

Thanks for stopping by, and please check back soon.  Happy Scrappin'     Carol  :)

Bridal Shower Favors & Graduation Cards

I know I haven't posted in two weeks, but I have been scrapping.  We only have 1 more week of school, and I have several projects that need to be completed by the end of the week.  So, that is the reason I haven't posted.  Here are a few of my latest "little treasures!"

Graduation Cards

 The following 2 grad cards are special orders.  They were designed to "match" the young lady and gentleman for which they were made (hair color and hobbies).

 These mints were a special order for a bridal tea.  I think they turned out really well. 

Thanks for stopping by, and Happy Scrappin'

Spa Kits

I saw these super cute spa kits on beth-a-palooza's blog.  She makes the most adorable gifts!  As soon as I saw them, I knew I had to try to make one.  Well, I have made 2 and am almost finished with the 3rd.  I am sharing the one I made for my BFF, Aymee.  I told her she would have to come to Bama to get it.  LOL. 

I purchased the nail polish remover at Wal-Mart, and all the other little goodies came from Dollar Tree.  I used the Mickey and Friends cart to cut the nail polish embellie and the flower.  I tried to find  small packets of foot lotion, scrub, etc... (the packets that look like little feet) to add to the kit as well, but had no luck with that.  I'll keep looking for them so I can hopefully add them to it before Aymee comes for a visit.  I know Wal-Mart did stock them.  I also think a small candle would be a great addition to it as well (you know, one of the tea candles placed in a cute little clear plastic bag - like the ones I made recently for my coworkers).

Thanks for stopping by.  Please check back soon for more little goodies.  Happy Scrappin'

I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream for Ice Cream

Hey!  Hope you are having a fantastic day.  I sure am.  My daughter Aymee (southernbellescrapper) and I have been scrapping together via Skype.  We love to work on projects together, so this handy little tool allows us to do just that.  BTW, today is National Scrapbooking Day!  How cool is that!?!

I am in a tag swap with Aymee, my mother, and several other nice ladies over at DIY.  So, I have been working on tags today.  I made 10 ice cream cone tags, and they look so YUMMY!  Really makes me want to ask my DH if he will make an ice cream run to Sonic.  LOL

I made these using an svg file from My Scrap Chick.  Its in the Sweet Treats Collection.  I also embossed the cone and the ice cream using my Cuddlebug along with the argyle and swirls folders.  Then I used Chalk Box inks to distress the edges just a bit.  The cherry is a button with a gem attched on top, and the green ribbon represents the stem and can be used to attach the tag to a gift, etc...

A closer look at the embossing

I also cut names from vinyl and attached them to cosmetic bags today for a friend to give as graduation gifts.  I can't post these just yet because I don't want to ruin their surprise. 

Thanks for stopping by today and Happy Scrappin"

Mother's Day Gift for My Mom

Hey everyone.  Hope your week has been great.  It's a beautiful day here in North Alabama today, and the forecast calls for nice weather all weekend.

I knew exactly what I wanted to give my mom for Mother's Day, and I knew how I wanted it to look.  You know, sometimes what's in your head doesn't exactly turn out as you wish, but I must say that this is what I envisioned. 

I purchased the zebra print rainboots at a local shoe store, then I purchased items to go in them from Dollar General, Dollar Tree, and Wal-Mart.  My mom's initials are "M M," so I cut them from green vinyl using my Cricut and SCAL program and then placed them on the front of the boots.  After I finished taking pix of them on my front steps, I told my hubby that I wanted some for myself.  You see, I am always making things and giving them away to friends and family.  Oh Well!  That's what makes me happy!  :)

I hope you have an awesome weekend, and Happy Mother's Day to all you moms.

Altered Clock

I altered this clock for my son-in-law, Brandon, for his birthday.  He is working on his man cave and needed a clock, so I decided this would be the perfect gift.  I was right; he loved it!  I purchased this clock at Wal-Mart for $5.  I used my SCAL program, Gypsy, cricut, and the Everyday Paper Dolls cart in its construction.  The paper was purchased from Hobby Lobby, and I used Helmar glue as my adhesive.  Isn't that little rocker cute!  I altered the guitar to mimic the look of Brandon's guitar and chose red for the hair to complete the look. 
Thanks for stopping by, and hope to see you back here really soon.
