Hello My Fellow Crafters,

I am ready for a little warmer weather.  Most people think that when you live in Florida its always warm weather with swaying palm trees,  well the palm trees are swaying but let me tell you that we have had freezing weather for two nights, and during the day it didn’t get into the 60’s.  I know others have it really bad, but it’s cold 🙂

Anyway, when it’s cold outside you want to stay inside and what a better time to craft.  So as I was in the kitchen making myself a cup of hot chocolate, I looked at my trash can and got a great idea.  Let’s decorate a plain white trash can into a one of a kind trash can.

I didn’t want to make anything permanent just in case I was going to change the color accents in the kitchen so I decided to use the repositionable  Joans Craft World vinyl for this project. Since my tablecloth has all palm leaves on it,  I decided to make a palm tree using the Cricut Expression along with the Life is a Beach cartridge.

Just using two sheets of the Joans Craft World, Beach Theme, Repositionable Craft vinyl (light brown and celadon),  I made an ordinary trash can into a really fun and creative one.

Hello My Crafty and Stamping Friends.

I have made this birthday card for my dad-in-law using the new Moving Forward stamp set from Stampin’ Up.  Besides the fact that this set is really fun, it gets even better, because when you purchase this stamp set, Stampin’ Up donates part of the purchase price to support the Ronald McDonald House charities.

So you have fun stamping while helping a charity – I love it!

The stamp set has a bicycle (which I used), sail boat and a blimp (balloon), also with some sentiments.

In this card I used alot of supplies that are in my craft room.  The seagulls were cut using the Cricut Expression machine with the Life is a Beach cartridge.

Palm trees was made with a paper punch from punch bunch for the palms and the base was cut freehand on a piece of kraft cardstock and with the side of a Memento Rich Cocoa ink pad just brushed against lightly to get the look of a trunk of the tree.

I live on an island in north Florida and so many people ride there bicycles on the beach so since my dad-in-law visited and loved that idea I made him the beach theme card.

All I did to make the layers of the sand and ocean was I just used the torn paper look (really just tear the piece of cardstock) to get an uneven look.  I then added some glitter for the glistening sand.

Wishing my Dad-In-Law a Very Happy Birthday!

I needed to get creative and make a birthday card for my nephew. When he came to visit this past summer we had so much fun at the beach, so I decided to make that the theme of his card.

I used some 12 x 12 ivory cardstock for the base of the card that I cut to 9 x 8 the scored in half.

Then cut a piece of chocolate brown cardstock 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 then using a 2″ square paper punch I punched three squares in a row.  Layered it on top of the ivory card and used my ATG gun to put it all together.  I had some funky fiber in my drawer and decided to put a shell that I found on our beach for the perfect accent.

Of course I needed to use my Cricut Expression machine so I found the perfect seagull on the Life is a Beach cricut cartridge and cut it on ivory cardstock and then put Star Dust Stickles all over for a shimmery look.

I still didn’t know what stamp set I was using  and as I was going though all of acrylic stamps I found these three images on one sheet.  I have no idea who made them or where they came from.  All I knew is that they were perfect.  I stamped them with Rich Cocoa Memento Dye Ink and Wa-La my card is complete.

Thanks so much for allowing me to share this fun and easy birthday card with you.

~Happy Birthday Ryan~

Make it a Great Day and don’t forget to leave time to Craft!
