I hope you are enjoying your weekend. I've been doing housework and ironing but in between I did find some time to craft. I really should be scrapbooking but I just had to make this cute mummy treat box that I saw on Angie's stream. www.mychicnscratch.com. Isn't it just so cute? There is a frankenstein box also. I had made that one as a different kind of box from last year and my son loved it. He has it on his shelf.
For the mummy, you start out with a piece of card stock cut at 8 1/2" x 4 1/2", you score it on the landscape side at 1" and 2 1/2" then on the portrait side, you score it at 1" and 2 1/2", On the left and right side you cut up to the second score line and cut them off, the rest of the score lines you just cut up to. So sorry, you can check out Angie's site for complete instructions, I don't want to take from her blog to post on mine without her permission (of course).
Angie did her eyes different, which I love but I had big googly eyes, so figured I would use them. I ran the left over card stock through my crimper, then ran it through my shredder. I really have to get a personal shredder, they are so much more convenient.
Well, I hope you all have a wonderful rest of the weekend and a great week.
Thank you so much for stopping by, see you soon :)

Hello Everyone, Lisa from Lisa's Craft Room here to share my project for this month. I also picked up another date to help out, which is October 30th, Halloween ;) Thank you Sheila for this wonderful opportunity.
OK, what do you think of this? Cute or what? I ordered these from a company called Thoughts of Vinyl, they sell tons of wooden words, this was a set. I found the company through browsing The House Of Smiths blog, I believe it was through the GroupDealz site. They too sell tons of stuff. The company cuts them out and you decorate them. How fun is that. I must say, it was fun, but was a little bit of work and took a few days because I painted the letters instead of using paper on them and I painted the whole letter, front, back, sides, you could just paint the front and leave the rest the wood, but I chose to paint the whole thing. The backs aren't decorated though, just painted.
This is how they come. The wood is nice and thick and smooth. Don't you love that the hat is the i and the cat is the h? Well, I painted the W with lime green and added orange polka dots. I used a dauber for them, then went over them carefully with a brush.
The I (hat) was painted purple, lime green and black, I added white polka dots using the bottom of a lollipop stick, then added a Jolee's spider sticker.
For the T, I painted it white and just added a fuzzy ribbon around it.
The C is painted a rusty orange, I took the spider web die from My Creative Time, (Emma) cut it out and used it as a stencil. I then used rhinestones from Stampin' Up, colored them orange with a Blendabilities marker. I traced the spider webs with silver stickles to make them pop.
The cat was painted black and I cut out a witch's hat from My Creative Time, (Emma) twice, glued it together and used a glue dot to adhere it to the cat's head.
That's my project for you today. I hope you like it as much as I do. I think it came out so cute. Thanks again Sheila :)

Lisa from Lisa's Craft Room here to share my project for the month. WOW, can you believe it is almost Fall? Where did the summer go? Hi Sheila, thank you for having me :) Sorry in advance if this is a little picture heavy.
I decided to give my new toy a try. The Stampin' Up Gift Box Punch Board. I have the Envelope Board and love it so I decided to get the box one too. I wasn't going to, but I'm glad I did. It makes 15 different size boxes, according to the sizes. WOW, that's quite a few huh? The smallest is 1.75 x 1.75 x 1.75 using a 6 x 6 piece of paper or card stock, which I made just playing around to try it out. It is very cute and could fit small candies or earrings or a chained bracelet. The biggest one, which I made here is 4 x 4 x 4 using a 12 x 12 piece of paper or card stock. It's a very good size box for a gift.
We are celebrating my friend's birthday on Friday so I decided to make her this box and decorate it. I added some Shred Fill to the box, I'm going to put cash and maybe some Lindt Chocolates inside, this will also take the place of a card.
This is how I started out, with the punch board and a piece of blue card stock.
Here it is all punched, scored and folded.
For the boxes I like to use Scor - Tape or the red tape because it is stronger.
Here is the box, it is very easy to put together.
I used 3 stamp sets from Stampin' Up to decorate my box, Another Great Year, Perfect Pennants and Life's Adventure (which is a Hostess set). This side is from Another Great Year. I stamped it in brown and cut it out and adhered it with a tape runner. I added a rhinestone on top of the i.
This side is from Perfect Pennants, I stamped it in blue, used the 2" circle punch to cut it out, then stamped it again in yellow and punched out just the a with the 1/2" circle punch and used a pop dot to raise it up.
The sentiment, banner with candles and cupcake are from Another Great Year, her name is from letter stamps, I stamped them and used the 1/2" circle punch to cut them up and popped them up. The cupcake is also popped up and I added a rhinestone to the top. I colored the candles and the cupcake with markers. I stamped the candles with banner again and just cut out the banner and used a tape runner to adhere it on top of the stamped image. The sentiment was punched out with a punch but I left the top straight.
This side is from Life's Adventures, isn't that a cute cake? I stamped it in blue and just added touches of color with markers. I cut it out with the Ripple Paper Edgers scissors from Fiskars.
When you punch the paper or card stock on the other side of the punch, it makes these cute notches that locks the lid in place, isn't that cool? I love it.
Well, that's my project for you. I hope you like it as much as I liked making it. I think it came out so cute and I can't wait to make more. Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Thanks again to Sheila for this awesome opportunity.

Hi Everyone, Lisa from Lisa's Craft Room here with my project for this month. I haven't been able to craft a lot lately, since I've been working a second job. I don't think that is going to last too much longer. I saw this darling project on www.mychicnscratch.com. It's a little box that holds business cards perfectly. I love it and it was so easy to make. I'm so sorry, I didn't take pictures of the process. I know we are supposed to but I goofed. Maybe in the next few days, I will make another one and take pictures from beginning to end. I made the base with orange card stock and added the designer paper from Stampin' Up. I cut a half circle out of the front and added a skittle in the middle.
Thank you for stopping by. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Thanks Sheila for having me :)

Hi Everyone, Lisa from Lisa's Craft Room here for my monthly project. Thank you Sheila for allowing me to be here again. I hope everyone is doing well. For my project, I decided to make a set of 3 3 x 3 note cards with envelopes. I cut 3 pieces of white card stock at 6 x 3 and then folded them in half.
I used a stamp set called For The Birds from Stampin' Up. The images are so sweet. I used a variety of markers to color the images, Stampin' write and the new Blendabilities from Stampin' Up and some Copics.
I also stamped an image on each envelope just to tie them together. I used a blue ink and stamped around the card and the envelope to add a little color.
This is the Envelope punch board from Stampin' Up that I used to make my envelopes. This little gadget is awesome, it makes all kinds of sizes of envelopes, it also makes gift cards.
Here is the envelope completed. On the other side of the punch board is a slot to round edges. I hope you enjoyed my project. Have a wonderful weekend, see you soon.

I hope you are all doing well, it's already too hot for me :) I've been so busy working, I don't have a "new" project for you but I do have a digital page that I created a while ago. I don't mind creating the digital pages but my first love is hands on creating because that is what I love.
Anyway, I thought this page turned out cute. I still have to practice but it is fun learning. Sheila thank you for having me again this month and I know where summer is upon us we do need to just keep it KISS. So thank you for that.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and I promise to "try" to get more projects regularly posted.
