Pooh Diapers

I was asked to make a "simple" diaper cake for a lady expecting a little girl. Here's the catch... NO PINK!!!   They wanted yellow, brown and green.  Luckily, I found out her theme was Classic Pooh.

I found a cute hat and bootie set.  I also used Storybook cart for the letters and ovals.

Overall, I think it was cute, but I would have went for the pink and lots of foo-foo embellishments.

We have a winner!!!!

Tulip centerpiece

No Cricut heart be still. Papercrafts without the Cricut?!?!? My husband reminded me it could be done, lol. Since I didn't have my cricut-baby until last November.  I wanted a quick hostess gift to give my sister's MIL who was having us for Easter dinner.

This is a very simple craft project to do.  Supplies:  cardstock, small dowel rod, green floral tape, double sided tape, easter grass, candle wax, sm. flower pot.
 (The Pot/Stem) STEP 1: Cut your dowel rod 12 inches or size you need and wrap with floral tape.  Start at the top and work to the bottom. STEP 2: Take old candles and microwave bowl until melted.  Pour into flower pot. STEP 3: As wax sets up, put dowel rod in the center. (sorry I should have took a picture but I was rushing to get to dinner)  STEP 4: When the wax has set up with the dowel and is secure, fill with Easter grass and goodies.  (the sticker says "He has Risen".  It was the only yellow thing I could find on the fly) (The Flower) STEP …

Challenge #005
April Showers (water) Theme: Create a project that has something to do with "Rain or Water"

Cartridge:  Everyday Paperdolls
Paper: Various scrap cardstock
Embossing:  I used the little dots folder (my friends is borrowing, so I don't have the name of the folder right now)

Everybody Loves Chocolate!

I remember making easter chocolates as a family when I was a little girl.  This year, I decided I was going to make some with my little girl.  I forgot how easy and hard at the same time it is making these.  Or maybe that is beacuse it was my parents doing all the standing at the electric skillet, lol!

Here is what you need:   electric skillet, 4 coffee mugs, spoons, water, melting chocolate wafers, candy molds, and all the other goodies (like fruit, peanuts, raisins,  rice crispies, etc.) that you like in your chocolate.
I got my chocolate (dark and milk) at the local candy/cake shop. I think the craft/discount store's chocolate has too much of a waxy taste.  At the cake shop, I was also able to get the rest of my stuff. (pictured below) STEP 1: Fill electric skillet with 2 inches of water and 4 coffee mugs.  STEP 2:  Turn skillet on high to heat the water and cups, and add the chocolate wafers (1/2 c at a time). STEP 3:  Stir chocolate until melted and spoon into candy molds.  Shake…

Do it yourself embossing mat

I got this great tip from one of my scrapbook groups...

I needed a mat that I could use my embossing gun with and I ran across one I caould make.  First I used very heavy/thick chipboard.   This one was the back part of an embellishment pack. Next take some aluminum foil (I used name brand).  Cut the size of the board plus a little extra for folding.
Then I folding the foil around the cardstock, like I was wrapping a present.  I taped the flaps down on the back side.
Now I have a great embossing board. 
I think the reflective foil helps the powder/gun heat up faster and I don't have to worry about my fingers or my table.
