CTMH Chelsea Garden Twist and Pop Card

Here is a Twist and Pop Card that I helped a friend make.  I love it when someone asks me to help them make a card.  She asked me if I had ever seen or made a Twist and Pop card and I could say yes I had, and I even made a YouTube video of it.  I sent her the link and she wanted to make one.  So she came over and we did.
Here is the video of the one we made

Everything I used is on the video post in YouTube
I just love how it came out.
We use the video tutorial from MayMay made it 

Here is the video of the one I made before

These cards are really fun to make and they don't take to much time.  You really should try one or even 2.  Let me know if you do and leave me a comment below if you would like to see more.

Zipper bags made from Placemats

To day I made a couple of zipper bags using a YouTube tutorial from Lorrie Nunemaker you can see it here
Here are 2 of the 3 bags I made today.  These were so easy and fun to make!  Fast too.  They are made for The Pioneer Woman's Placemat. The bottom one fit my Surface Pro perfectly.  That was a happy accident.
I have been wanting to make a pouch for my computer and now I have a cute one.  Lucky Me.  Usually I give away what I make but this one is mine.
The video is at the bottom of this post!

You can see how perfect it fits.  I can even get my charger in the pouch too!  Like I said I am a Lucky girl!  

Here are all 3 bags.  I love them all.  How about you?  Give them a try you won't regret it, in fact you might really like them. 


I ended up putting vinyl on the back of the bag that I will be using to put my Surface Pro in.  I saw a video that Melody Lane did so I used her file that she shared and created this.
I bought the new Cricut patterned Iron-on vinyl.  I love this  I have the Cricut Easy Press and the settings I used were 340° for 50 sec (yes 50).  Give it a try and see for yourself.

-----------------------Another Update-----------------------------

I just was packing and wanted to take my Cannon Selphy printer with me and I had my placemat bag I had just made sitting right there.  I popped it in and the paper cassette along with the charger and guess what!  It fits like a glove well actually I have room for my 2x3 cassette and paper for each.  Another Happy Accident.  I will have to put some Cricut Iron-on so I know whats inside.
Well I guess I will have to make more of theses since I was originally was going to give them all to my grandkids to use for them selves.  LOL!!!!!

What did you put in your bags???

Here is the video.

Sweet Treats 3D Box for Organization

This is a short How To video on making a 3D box to hold some of my itty bitty's from my dry erase board.  I have been working on downsizing my studio from 2 rooms back down to 1 room.  That is a big chore but it will be worth it in the end.
Here is my dry erase board, my Grandkids love to play and draw all over it.  Sadly it has to go to make room for my Ikea Kaylex unit that I have in the other room.

These are the 2 Kaylex units that I will be putting in the other room Ugh!  Lots of rearranging and organizing going on.  Purging is a good thing to do often not just once in awhile.  Lol!  Note to self.

Here are the boxes that I made.  I will probably make more.  The finished size is 5 x 5 x 3  They ended up the perfect size for what I needed

Here is the video.

Thanks for stopping by!

Be Mine, Valentine

Here is a Valentine's card using the Chelsea Garden G1149 Workshop Your Way Scrapbooking kit.  I used 3 sheets from the WYW for this card.  I was able to make 12 cards with what I cut out.

Here are the papers that I used that gave me 6 different looks because of the double sided paper.

I separated all the hearts by size in little containers and put them in descending order.  That way everything was easily accessible and I didn't have to guess which one was which.  I then started to arrange them on my card.  After I found the placement that I liked I then arranged my containers with the different heart in the order that I put them on the card and that helped speed up my process. 
 Then I did all 12 one after the other.

Next I got my Stamp set the I wanted to use which was the Stamp Of The Month for January 2018 S1701 Adore You.  

I liked the flower swag the heart and Be mine, Valentine.  After making one with the swag I didn't like it so I just used the Heart.

It still need a little something more so I cut out just one of the medium sized hearts in a paper from my stash.  We always need to use up our stash!  LOL and this was a great way to do that.  This was from the paper pack Heartstrings now discontinued.  Of course there will be some bling added too!

I have a box of bling that sets on my table for easy access.  I put all of my bling that is partly used up in it and I try to use that up first before opening up anything new.  I found some bitty sparkles and some red gems that would go nicely.
I added my sentiment of Be mine, Valentine. to the front and then popped up the red heart with 3D foam tape and placed it on the card.  

I liked how it turned out but next time I would place another piece of colored cardstock on top of the white card then put the hearts on.  Don't know what I was thinking, Oh well next time!  There is always room for improvement in everything we do.  Right!

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look.  Leave me a comment and let me know what you think.
