Gift Card Bags

Hi Everyone,

Merry Christmas to you all. Wasn't it just Thanksgiving?  I have been so busy trying to get everything done, while working full-time but, I'm sure most of us are in the same boat, right?. I'm sorry I really don't have a blow by blow description of my project. I  am trying to think outside the box when it comes to wrapping certain things, so I thought making these little bags would be cute for gift cards. Of course I always give credit from where I get the ideas, and these cute bags are from Angie at Chic n' Scratch. The paper alone cracks me up, it's from Stampin' Up.

I punched a hole through the top and added curly ribbon. Hopefully, after the holidays, I will get to be more productive.

Sheila, thank you for having me and I'm sorry it wasn't  a fabulous post :)

See you soon.

Christmas Wreath

Hi Everyone,

Lisa from Lisa's Craft Room here for another month, thank you Sheila :) I saw Angie at Chic n' Scratch make these adorable wreaths and thought that I would make one for my mom for Christmas. It's not the traditional Christmas colors but I wanted something different. So here it is. I think now everyone incorporates different colors for Christmas anyway :) As a matter of fact the patterned papers I used are from a stack called Valentine from Recollections. So, it would make the perfect Valentine wreath too.

You start off with a 10" wreath form, I got mine at Joann's, it's white. The strips are 12" x 1 1/2". I used 21 strips. I used my ATG gun as the adhesive and wrapped each one around the form, securing them together. Once I was done with that, I tied a ribbon to hang it. I cut notches out with scissors, I started off using my square punch, but it's a 1" so it was a tad small, but the scissors worked fine. I used blue cardstock from a pack called The Christmas cardstock matstack from DCWV and punched 3 scallops out with a 2 3/8" punch, and the same cardstock in white for the circles, punch size 1 3/4". The punches are from Stampin' Up. I stamped them with the letters JOY in Pink Passion, the letters and ink are also from Stampin' Up.

So there you have it, a cute fun wreath to hang up for the holiday season. I love this wreath, because you can make it easy and for any holiday.

Thank you for stopping by, your comments are very much appreciated. Thank you again Sheila for having me for another month.

A Halloween Card

Hi Everyone and Happy Halloween, it's Lisa from Lisa's Craft Room sharing another project this month. I offered to take another day to fill an empty space. This is my cute Halloween card I made. The card is a standard size 8 1/2" x 5 1/2". The base is white and I used orange card stock as a layer. I laid down some washy tape that I had bought a while ago from Stampin' Up that I hadn't used yet. The sentiment is also from Stampin' Up, the set is called Mingle All the Way. The cute hat, legs with shoes and broom are from Emma's at My Creative Time's stamp and die set called Wicked Fun Dies. I colored the broom handle with black and added a little shimmer from a silver glitter marker. I added glossy accents to the shoes, and a little twine bow to the hat. The sequins in the corner were from Michael's. On the sentiment, I colored  a couple of the words orange and green to match the card.

It's hard to see the details of the card but it came out very cute. Thanks for visiting my blog and have a very Happy safe Halloween and a wonderful weekend.

Thanks Sheila for allowing me to be a part of your team :)

Mummy Treat Box

Hi Everyone,

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. 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 :)

Wood Witch Word

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 :)

Gift Box made with the Stampin' Up Punch Board

Hi Everyone,

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.

A Business Card Holder

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 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 :)

A set of 3 x 3 note cards with envelopes

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.

Digital Scrapbooking

Hi Everyone,

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.

A Birthday Cupcake Card

Hi Everyone, Lisa from Lisa's Craft Room here sharing my project for this month and a BIG thank you to Sheila for having me again. My friend's birthday was May 12th and since she is big into making cupcakes, I thought what would be better than making her a cupcake card. I started out with a piece of orange card stock, then added a piece of white card stock as a layer. I had those circle stickies so I punched out 5 of the size I wanted, the punch worked good, but not perfect, I just had to finish cutting them out with scissors but it wasn't too bad. I used twine to cover them up. I started in the middle and just went around and around. I cut out the cupcake holder free hand and ran it through my cuttlebug using a polka dot folder. I tied stretchy ribbon around the middle. I added brown and orange stickles as decorations. I cut out another circle and adhered it on top of the cupcake and used red stickles to make it look like a cherry.

Then I stamped a sentiment. I thought it came out great and she loved it.

Thanks so much for stopping by, have a great weekend.

Card in a Box

Hello, it's Lisa from Lisa's Craft Room sharing my project for this month. I love to search the web for ideas when I am stuck on what to do. I have been seeing these cards in a box and think they are adorable. I thought I would try my hand at making one. A friend from work is leaving to start another job, so I thought it would be cute to make this for her along with a gift. The box itself is pretty easy, it's the decorating the layers that is was a little tricky for me. For the base, I used a piece of green card stock from my stash. I used Stampin' Up products for the designer paper, the flower stamps, the sentiments and the rhinestones. The little branches are from a Martha Stewart's punch and the leaves are a die and stamp set called The Sweet Life from Paper Trey Ink. The inks I used are Chocolate Chip, Pear Pizzazz, Calypso Coral and Baja Breeze. I think it came out cute but I need to practice layering.

Thanks for stopping by and thank you Sheila for having me. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

What Happened?

I am so very upset. I was trying to change the look of my blog and now it is all messed up. I read that Blogger has changed and no longer offers the minima template. My followers have disappeared. I don't understand about html's and such but I am very upset that my blog looks out of sorts. Please bare with me while I try to look into fixing it.

Thank you all.

I just wanted to post these cute tags that I made using the tag die from My Creative Time for me and that sweet adorable stamp from Stampin' Up. I added ribbon and linen thread to the top of the tag. I used Stampin' Up's punches for the circle and the scallop circle. I added a rhinestone to the bunny's tail. I got this idea from Angie at Chic N' Scratch. I stamped the image with the same colors as the tag and popped it up with dimensionals. The card stock is from a paper pack that I purchased at Hobby Lobby called Momenta, love the colors.

Happy Easter

Hello, Lisa from Lisa's Craft Room sharing my project with you this month. As always, thank you Sheila for having me. I decided even though it is a little early, I decided to make an Easter card. Happy Spring to you all. Hopefully, we will not be getting anymore snow.

I used Kraft card stock as the card, which is an A2 size. All the dies and stamps are from Emma. Aren't they so adorable. Look at the details on the dies, the stitching is so sweet. I cut the eggs out on the card with my cuttlebug and then used the stamps and stamped inside of them. I used dimensionals on the bunny, chick, basket and eggs. I added a bow to the basket.

That's my project for today. I'm sorry it is short, but my husband just had Rotator Cuff (shoulder) surgery yesterday, so I am playing nurse :)

Thank you for stopping by. Your comments are very much appreciated.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend.

An altered Valentine's Day mail box

Hi Everyone,

Lisa from Lisa's Craft Room here with my project for the month. I know Valentines' Day is over but I wanted to share with you what I made for my mother and sister. I purchased 3 cute metal mail boxes at Target for $1.00 each. I bought 2 pink ones and 1 red one. I still have to decorate the red one for myself.

This is it before decorating it.

I took decorative paper and adhered it to the base. The size of that is 4" x 12". For the covers, I just traced them on the paper and cut them out and adhered them. Then just used ribbons and some embellishments, a purple glittery self adhesive heart, some lace and gems, some tulle and brads. I think they came out really cute and my mother and sister loved them.

To have something to put inside of the mail boxes, I thought of dye cutting small envelopes with little notes in each one, but then decided to just make little bags. I put Valentine's Day Hershey kisses in each bag, stapled them closed and added a paper bow which is a die from Emma. I added a pearl in the middle of each one.

So that is my project for this month. Thank you Sheila for having me and Thank you all for stopping by.

Valentine Box

Hi Everyone,

It's Lisa from Lisa's Craft Room to share my project this month. Thank you to Sheila for having me. I haven't had too much time to craft lately :( I decided to make this cute easy box that I saw from Angie from My Chic N' Scratch. She makes a lot of boxes and bags and they are very easy and come out so cute. The best thing is, you can make them and decorate them to make them your own.

For this box, you start out with a piece of card stock that measures 9" x 5 1/2", then you score at 1", 2 1/2", 6 1/2" and 8".

Then you cut the tabs on the score lines as shown.

These two sides you just cut up to the score lines but don't cut them off.

Then put adhesive as shown. I used score tape. You can use the red sticky tape or any good adhesive.
Then fold it up as shown. You can check out Angie's video for more details.

This will be the back of the box. You cut another piece of card stock to 5 1/2" x 4", round the top corners.

This piece will go over the exposed adhesive. For the designer paper, I used The Crush Collection from Bo Bunny. For the front of the box, the paper is cut 3 3/4" x 2 15/16". The top part is cut at 4" x 3 1/2". I used heart dies and cut three different sizes out and used dimensionals for each one to pop them up. Then you can put either cards or candy in a bag. The possibilities are endless for this box.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a great weekend.
