An Apple a day...

When I saw this image at the Cherie Reve Store at
I thought this little guy was super cute and 
  that he is brushing his teeth is super funny to me ...
Because my little guy Rory is a teeth brushing maniac right now...
 anyone goes into the bathroom they need to be prepared  for him to try to climb the cabinets trying to get to his tooth brush as he says teeth  over and over again... so cute and a great habit..
( who doesn't like freshly brushed teeth!) =D
Anyway... I digress...
the Stamp name is Little Boy who loves to brush  his teeth which you can find  HERE .


(Sorry not the best Photo..  my camera was about to die.)
I loved the little apples on his PJ's, so I used the apple punch to give the card a bit of quirky fun.
 of course that color green is my fave so anytime I can use it in a card I am happy ...
the sentiment came from TLC creations and I thought it fit.. =D 
Thanks for looking and I am  entering the card in the following challenges...

  • ( well tomorrow I am  adding them LOL just to tired  now! )

Monster Cut file freebie!

Hello my fellow Lovers of  Monsters Big and Small...

I teamed up with Daphadilly Art for this little cutie... ( I added the flowers but the rest is her design)
So you can make either a boy monster or a girl monster =D
She is a digital Scrapbook designer and sells her kits at a few stores one of which is Digi Scrap Drive In
 You can find the set I used to make these here for digital scrapbooking.. it's called ..  Tickle Monster .
 ... Of course this is an exclusive freebie from me ... I am  the only one allowed to make cut files from her sets due to the fact that she is my super talented Little sister! =D 
So If you want this and more I will be adding in the future make sure to follow me so you know when to  come and get them! 

I made these in an SVG and MTC format but if you need in  another just let me know and I will try to add for the rest of you!
Monster 1  MTC

Monster 1  SVG

Oh and on a side note... LOL I glued the mouth backwards so it's supposed to be the opposite way I inadvertently glued the black part to the pink on the wrong side ..Grrrrr  but at least you can see how it will look  like.

This goes perfectly with the Our Monster cutie title I made...and shared in a few post back I also have 3 more title versions to share already made up so make sure you  check back soon!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy! If you  use it please  share your project with me ... I know my sister would be thrilled and so would I! And please if you share Your creations on your blog Please direct them to my blog Thanks!

Make a Splash Digital Scrap Page

I made this Digital LO for a Digi Scrp Drive In Drag Race my Sister ran last Friday night
I was so happy with my creation I just had to share!
I am  by no means great at this yet but i like it and  have fun playing around with it.
I used Digital paper by Daphadilly Arts
& Elements from Studio Flergs

 the sentiment was by TLC_Creations.

I followed directions on how the LO should be like how we do in Paper
scrapbooking and card making for a sketch Challenge &  the recipe that was required...
and this is what I came up with.

Thanks for the fun night ! Had fun exploring the digital side of things
& Can't wait to learn how to do more...

Now Off to finish a slew of other PAPER projects...

Monster Cutie Cut File Freebie !

Hi Everyone ,
I have been making a few things for a gift for my Niece's birthday and wanted to share!
Today I am giving away a title that I have made into a MTC file & a SVG file.
I actually have made several variations on this file so
 I will be posting a new freebie  every few days  to share!
I just want to cut it out to make sure it comes out before I share it.
Here is what the file I am sharing today looks like.
I think it turned out super cute!
** This file has 3 separate layers in case you can't tell**
 at the size I cut it which is about 51/2 inches long..
there are a few spots that are really thin..
I would not cut smaller than that unless you beef up those lines..
 I fixed that on the other versions  but this was the first one I did.

You can get this file in either

Make sure to come back tomorrow for a new cut file that will go perfectly with the title...

Awwwww  Super Cute.... Right?  =D

 Here are my cutie monsters...


I sure hope you enjoy this freebie!

Please leave a comment to let me know you like it !

Frog Prince Card & a Freebie!

You have to kiss a lot of Frogs to find your Prince...

You got that right ! =D
Well you  might have to kiss one or 2 anyway.. =P


Hello again & Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

 I have a bunch of projects in the works but for today a super cute card
Primsy Doodles

 I had a fun time making this Card,
First I love FROGs
Second ..It has my all time fav colors in it..
Well it is missing  the Turquoise Blue..
But the Green and pink are there! so we are good .

I just love this little frog...
I colored all the green with my Prisma markers and then used my copics for the rest.
I added a few bits of bling to the top and bottom corners to help add what I was perceiving as a bit boring card.. hahaha.. I just can't not add bling or stickles! it's a sickness I tell ya!

Popped this guy up  for a bit of dimension
I layered several different cardstock colors for the mats  
 then used a lovely Green Patterned Paper as my  background.

I whipped up the sentiment on my computer to fit the card &
used some "trash" from a corner punched from the 3 dot scallop Martha Stewart as my corner frame pieces.
I used a little bit of stickles on them to give them a bit more pizazz . and on some highlights on my frog.

If you would like the freebie sentiment just click on the photo and right click and save as

Check back for a freebie SVG  &  MTC  file on Thursday with a super cute altered item project  =D

Flower Fairy Card

Hiya Guys!
Thanks for stopping by.
Today I made a super cute card with the

I also used a Striped paper from the Soothing paper set

I just changed the color to Purple and printed ...=D
I love that about digital paper.

 For the rest of the paper I got it in a large stack when I first started scrapbooking
I am trying to use it because OMG there is so much of it!
 I normally use solid papers so I really need to mix it up more often.
I love how it turned out... 3 different papers & white as my base.

I used the Martha Stewart Scallop 3 dot punch set &
 then topped that with some pretty lace along the side.

I made this "flower" with some 1.5 inch ribbon doubled over and inked the edges
after sewing the center and gathering into what looks like a flower to me ...
Added a cute butterfly button to top it off.

This is a Inkadinkado clear stamp single I got from a stamp swap a while ago...
 Love it soooo cute!

I added some stickles ( of course) to make my little fairy shine,
 added a dot of white gel pen to her eyes &
 used copics for all the coloring except for the green
( I still have no green copics,  Ack!)

I just loved this stamp
 You can find it at along with lots of other really cute stamps!
 Thanks for looking!
