Hobby Lobby Haul

Yesterday I went to Hobby Lobby, looking for card stock and/or pattern paper. I found both, and at pretty good prices(:

Also, I made some magnets using create a critter that are great for the refrigerator or a locker(:

Cali's Owl Card

Trust me, I LOVE create a critter, but I just haven't gotten around to filming a video (: So, we had reached 100 subscribers, and I didn't want to leave everyone without a video, so Cali made a project for you guys(: She put it all together on a video. I will (hopefully) be doing another video within the week! There are so many great features to create a critter, so I will probably be showcasing it(:

I received Create a Critter in the mail today!! I had the winning bid a few days ago of $32 (with shipping). The description of the item on ebay wasn't too detailed, so I was a little worried about the condition...but I opened the box and everything was great! I did notice that it wasn't in the original plastic outer packaging and the reward sheet wasn't in the box; not a huge deal... I don't think I would ever get enough points to buy anything(:

Loving Sure Cuts A Lot, I am not a huge cartridge person (with my Cricut, I got the Celebrations, George, and Mini Monograms cartridges; so I didn't realize how great the newer ones are) So far I ABSOLUTELY LOVE Create-a-Critter. I haven't played with it too much, but I can think of about a million occasions and projects that it can be used for(: There are sooooo many images and phrases that make the cartridge worth it!

Triangle Box

I hope everyone is having a great 4th of July and spending time with family and friends(: A few days ago I was totally inspired by the ChicnScratch Blog/YouTube, and absolutely LOVED the triangle box she made, but I decided to take it up a notch(:

Basically, you need 2 squares side by side (not cut apart) in order to make the box. That is all you need to know when changing the sizes. Here are some of the sizes you can cut your paper for this box-

The first one is hibiscus paper, (12x12) from HobbyLobby (ThePaperStudio) and it was actually in the Clearance papers for 25 cents a few weeks ago, and I thought it could not be more perfect for summer. I used some on that sheet of paper in a mini album, so I figured, it is in my scrap bin, I should use some of it up instead of cutting into a new piece of paper.

The glossy, polka-dot paper; I used in the larger box, is from a colorbox patterned card stock stack that I have had FOREVER. I love that stack and always hesitate to use it(:

I used a Studio G stamp from Michael's with some Martha Stewart Metallic Pigment Ink. I definatley should have used my heat tool to dry it, because being pigment ink on glossy cardstock is NOT a good combination. Between the video and taking pictures, the ink totally smeared. I think it had something to do with the fibers. hmmm... Oh well, I can easily make a new tag(:

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great 4th of July!
