Caramel Mocha Cappuccino Punch

Here is my second set of recipe cards for the recipe swap at DIY.  The recipe on this set of cards is very ADDICTIVE!!!!  I created this delicious drink several years ago, and it has become a favorite for my family (and many friends).  I don't make it near as much as I'd like because it is a little on the "fattening" side.  LOL   

I have really enjoyed making the recipe cards for this swap.  I hope the ladies at DIY will enjoy the recipe and the cards.  Thanks to Aymee again for editing my pix, and she is the one who is hosting the swap.  Is she cool or what!?!  If you enjoyed seeing my cards, you may like to see the cards Aymee has made by visiting her blog.  You may also like to check out the cute cards made by other members who participated by heading on over to DIY.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today.  If you would like this recipe to try for yourself, just leave me a message and I will gladly send it to you.  Even if you don't want the recipe, please leave me a comment so I will know you stopped by for a visit.

Recipe Cards

I am participating in a recipe swap with some wonderful ladies from DIY.  I like to do this kind of swap because I not only get delicious recipes, but the cards are absolutely adorable.  I purchased a 6x6 album from Hobby Lobby to put them in for safekeeping.  The album looks nice on my kitchen counter.  I get lots of compliments on it, and it gives me a chance to share it with my friends.

Aymee edited my pix again.  Isn't she awesome?!?  BTW, how do you like the new blog look?  It is courtesy of my talented daughter as well.  Thanks Aymee!!!!

Check back soon to see another set of recipe cards.

A "Witchy" Notepad Holder

I thought using an acrylic photo frame for a notepad holder was the coolest altered project idea I had seen in a while.  I spotted one on Splitcoaststampers.  That site has SEVERAL versions, and each one is super cool!

For my version, I purchased the following from:
WalMart:  frame for $0.97 and notepad
Hobby Lobby: all paper, ribbon, Stickles
Dollar General: Pentel brand pen (WalMart carries these as well)
Helmar: glue
JoAnn: circle and scalloped punches

I used my Cricut and the Happy Hauntings cartridge for the witch hat and boots.  The sentiment was computer generated using WrapCandy. 

Did you notice the barrel of the pen?  I wrapped some of the stipped paper (like I used for the witch's stockings) around it.  I saw this idea on Splitcoaststampers as well.

I hope you have an awesome day and Happy Scrappin'!     Carol   :)

Carter's Tooth Fairy Box

Carter has his first loose tooth!!!!!  I decided to make him a Tooth Fairy Box for this milestone. 

The "box" was made using my Scor Pal.  This is the neatest tool for making boxes, purses, envelopes, cards, etc... 

The top of the box is decorated with svg files from My ScrapChick using my Cricut and SCAL.  I tried to keep it from looking "girly" but when the tooth fairy is a girl (or so Carter says) there are some girly features.  Carter LOVES girls, so he thought she was soooo cute!  The sentiment was computer generated.

   Here is a pic of the card Carter will use this to tell about loosing his first tooth.  I used various svg files and embellies on each card.  Caressa said she was going to put Carter's first tooth in the photo square located in the lower left hand corner.  Isn't she clever?!?  

When I Lost My First Tooth

The following pix show cards for Carter to use to write to the tooth fairy and tell where, when, and details each time he looses a tooth. 

Dear Tooth Fairy Card and My Lost Tooth Record Card Pix

The last pic is of the last section of the box.  I created a "false bottom" and it has a drawstring bag I made for Carter to put his tooth in and put under his pillow.  These's also a poem about leaving a tooth for the tooth fairy. 

We also have a certificate and a note for the Tooth Fairy to leave Carter. 

This was so much fun to make.  It took me almost 2 whole days.  I put a lot of thought into it, and I'm meticulous and slow.  I would love to make a girly girl Tooth Fairy box as well.  If you would like to place an order for a Tooth Fairy Box (for a boy or girl), just leave me your contact info in the comment section.  Or, you may email me.  Thanks for visiting today.  I hope to see you back here soon. 

Happy 4th of July         Carol  :)

Happy Birthday Tyler

Today is my son's birthday.  He is a wonderful young man, and I'm very proud of him.  He's smart, hard-working, handsome, etc...  He and Aymee are both a huge blessing in my life.  I am so fortunate to have 2 great "kids" who have grown up to be responsible adults. 

I asked Tyler what he wanted for his birthday, and he said, "A Lowe's giftcard so I can buy some tools."  He is very good (meticulous) at "fixing" things around the house, so this is something that I know he will enjoy.  After purchasing the giftcard, I knew exactly how I wanted to design his birthday card.  I used my Cricut, SCAL, and an svg file from My ScrapChick in its construction.  The sentiment is computer generated using WrapCandy software.  The papers are all from Hobby Lobby.   

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a happy and safe Fourth of July weekend.  See you soon!
