Jaded Blossom December Challenge: Crafters Choice

Hi Everyone
I hope you all had a Merry Christmas! Mine was very busy. I have had this horrible cold that just won't go away and it hasn't stopped snowing here since last week. Today is this 1st day I have felt a little better and I cleaned up my craftroom a little to get a project done for the Jaded Blossom Monthly Challenge.
If you haven't checked out their stamps you have to take a looksy lou here. I absolutely LOVE them. I only have a couple of sets but they are some of the best stamps I owe. They made them mainly for using on gifts and they just have the cutest sayings!

Here is some little gifts I made for our friends children. I used the stamp set called Reindeer Magic. I got this set from my sister for Christmas and I couldn't wait to try it out.

This is the Reindeer Poop poem, I just love it! This is the front of the tag I created
and the back.
These are the little bags I made.
I filled them up with Christmas Hersey kisses, mint, almond and regular.
You can enter the Challenge over at Jaded Blossom.

Charm Bracelet & Chunky Charm

Hi crafties!
I have been busy making Christmas presents and wanted to start sharing some of my ideas and projects with you.

This project was actually for my sister's birthday. Her kids are really into Pop Warner Football and in Reno all the teams are Wolf Pack- just different colors. Our University is also Wolf Pack so this worked out perfect for my project because the colors are the same.
First I made her this Chunky Charm bracelet, this was the 1st one I have ever made and I just love the way it turned out.

Next I made her this awesom Chunky Charm she could hang on her bag or use as a keychain.
I just love how these turned out! If you are interested in any of the charms or bracelets I show on here just email at creationswithbecka at yahoo dot com.
I do take custom orders.

Floral Spray Swap

Good morning everyone!
Today is Friday YAY! Well I haven't posted in a while because I have been busy preparing for some swaps and September is an extremely busy month here in Reno! We have so many festivals and events in the month of September it seems I don't get very much done LOL!!
Starting the 1st week in September we have the Rib cook off, this is where vendors from all over the world show up and fight for your vote for the best ribs. This is always a fun event but can be very spendy as the prices for the ribs are totally outragous! But it is always fun.
Then the following weekend is the Balloon Races. Yes Hot Air Balloons from all over come here to race.  Next, the Reno Air Races are held at the little airport out in Stead. My mom always has a huge party at her house for this as you can see everything from her yard. Then last week was Street Vibrations which is where tons of motorcycles come into town. So, these are some of the reasons why I have been so busy.
But I always signed up to do some swaps at Cricut, Mini Alubm Scraps and Craft Happens. So lets check out the first swap that I completed.

I signed up for the Floral Spray swap on the Cricut messageboard. I have never made these before but the examples looked awesome so I wanted to give it a try. Here is what I made:

I must say these are pretty easy to make but man o man do your fingers hurt afterward! Wrapping all of that wires does a number on your fingers! LOL!!!

For the tag I put it on, I used the Imagine Cart- Industrial Glow for the paper. When I saw this paper I just had to use it. For the sentiment I used Jaded Blossom curly die and stamp for the outside of the saying. Then the actual stamp I used for the saying is by Crafty Sprouts.
So what do you think? I made 11 of these to send off and I can't wait to get mine back to see what wonderful creations everyone made.

My Stick Pins for a Swap

Hi Crafties!

My son's first day of school was yesterday. He is a big third grader now! Time goes by so quickly. He is growing up so fast. I brought him to school and brought him in to meet his teacher and it was hard for me to let him go when I hugged him Good Bye.  It's amazing how fast they start to grow up. I know he is a great kid and really is going to grow up to be a great man. He just amazes me everyday with his huge heart.  He is willing to help anyone and I am just so proud of him.

So, last night after school his tummy was hurting and then the poor thing spent all night in the bathroom with some kind of flu bug. Needless to say, I wouldn't let him go to school today and it is only his second day. I feel so bad for him. So, today I am home from work with him, trying to make him feel better.

Today, I wanted to share some stick pins that I made for a swap that I am was in with some ladies from the Cricut Message board.

The first set of pins I made I used the Best Friends Imagine cartridge to print up the fronts of these matchbook covers.
These are the first sets of pins I made for the 1st group in the swap.
These are the 2nd sets for the 3rd group. I used Pink By Designs "Crop til you Drop" stamp set for the stamps sentiment and I also used the Imagine More Imagine cartridge for the tags.

I have some exciting information for some upcoming events too, check it out below:

This weekend August 25th & 26th, I am in a Scrapbook room Reveal blog hop. WOOHOO! I video taped my room and can't wait to share it with all of you. Pretty exciting, plus you will get to see variety of other craftrooms and storage ideas. Plus, there are giveaways!!! YEAH!!

Tropical Pin Cushion Swap

Hi Everyone
Today I have a special project and video for you. I was recently in a Tropical Pin Cushion swap over at Mini Album Scraps. We were partnered up with one partner and we each were supposed to make a pin cushion with a tropical theme for each other.

So I was partnered with Audrey and this is the pin cushion I made for her

So, I started out with a silver tin with a lid, I removed the lid and painted the tin red. I didn't have any tropical or summery fabric so I cut apart one of my old swimsuit covers and used the fabric from it to create the flower and the top of the pin cushion.. I used white tulle and a red button. The trim is just various trim I had and I used blue ink on the bottom one.

Ok here is the pin cushion that Audrey made for me:
Sorry this took so long to get up, the video took forever to process.

Crafty Friend Card

Hi All

Today is Wednesday, which means I only have 1 more day left at work this week! WOOHOO!!! I love Summer.

I wanted to share with you this card I made for my partner in one of the swaps that I was in over at Mini Album Scraps. The swap was to make a Tropical themed pin cushion. I will be sharing the pin cushion I made and the one I got back later this week.

I can't remember for the life of me the cartridge I used for the flower, but the stamp is from Crafty Sprouts and the twine is from Trendy twine.
Thanks for visiting today and I hope you all will check out my on-line store www.whatsscrappin.com

Happy Birthday Card

Happy Tuesday All,

Hope you all had a great weekend. Mine was very busy. My husband's friend passed away 2 weeks ago leaving behind a wife and 6 kids. Ages ranging from 3-16, it is quite sad actually he was only 37 years old. Pretty scary.

Since he is the only bread winner in the house we (all of our friends & their co-workers) have been trying to raise money for the family. We held a garage sale this weekend to help out. It was really nice because all of his co-workers donated stuff for us to sell. We raised over $2000 for the family and this is really exciting. We are so happy that we can help them out in this time of need

It was also my husbands birthday on Friday, and I took him out to a steakhouse that we have been trying to go to forever. Well we finally made it there and it was delicious!

Here is a Birthday card using Create A Critter
I absolutely love this cartridge. It is by far one of my favorites.
