3D Thursday - Dad's Day Treat Bucket With Matching Card

Good morning!  Welcome to 3D Thursday!  This week it was team member Debbie Henderson from over at Debbie's Designs turn to get crafty.  Debbie has altered a cute little tin bucket into a great little gift for Dad and even made a matching card!  As always we have FREE printable directions for you.  All you have to do is click the link at the end of the post to view and print them off.
Here's a picture of the set.  What a wonderful gift idea!
Debbie created this gift bucket by using the new stamp set "A Good Man" available June 4th from the new catalog!  Yes I said NEW catalog! (and if you need a new catalog be sure and message me and I will take care of you.)
Debbie also used the retiring "Large Letters" Framlits to spell out DAD.  I am very sorry to see these leave and if you haven't got them order them now.  They are a must have!
Debbie completed her gift by making a matching card using the same stamp set and some of our beautiful new Scalloped Ribbon in Seaside Foam and matching DSP.  OH! and some fun new Faceted Dots!!!  So now it's time to make your own Dad's Day Bucket w/card.  Click on the link below to print FREE directions!

A Day At The Zoo - Scrapbook Pages

Since I was kinda on a roll the other day I went ahead and did a couple more fun pages of when our triplet grandsons turn two and we all went to the zoo to celebrate the day.
I dug around and found this fun Birthday DSP that had party hats on animals and thought it was perfect for this two page layout!
When you are taking pictures x 3 you sure do end up with a lot.  Taking turns feeding the giraffes.
Here's one more page I did using DSP from the Doodlebug store in Jasper.  I still have a few more pictures of our big outing to do. I think I'm doing pretty good.
Thanks for stopping by and have a crafty day!

Happy National Scrapbook Day!

Hi everyone!  Since today is National Scrapbooking Day I've been doing a little bit of scrapbooking this afternoon.  So far I've completed three pages (no journaling) but that's pretty good for me.  So here's what I've done so far.
I'm so glad I saved some of my 12' x 12" Tempting Turquoise Cardstock.  I took these picture a few years ago of my daughter and niece and their kiddos at the park one day.  I've got triplet grandsons and don't really ever get to add flowers to a page and I think I may have gotten away with it today.
These pictures were taking last year at my mom's home.  She bought little buckets so each of the boys could pick holding one.  My sister was there for a visit too.
Now before I end the post I want to share a little tip with you about the Simply Score. 
 (It's not just a score board)
If you find it hard to get things straight like I do, I use my SImply Score or other score board and a piece of scrap paper to help line up my letters and pictures. Cheaper than buying one of those rulers. (If you already have one.)
Hey you all, Thanks so much for stopping by to check out what I've been up to!
Have a super crafty day!

3D Thursday - Throwback - Pocket Fun

Hey everybody!  Welcome to this week's 3D Thursday Project Post!  This week it's another Throwback project.  Today I decided to bring back my Pocket Fun since the Stamp set and Matching Die will be retiring at the end of May.  I think it's one of my all time favorite projects that I've made.  Remember that FREE directions can be found at the end of the post.  Let's get started!
I had a lot of fun with the stamp set "Pocket Full Of Sunshine" and the matching dies.  I created a fun little Gift / Treat pocket.
I'm also sad to see that the 2017/2018 In Color "Lemon Lime Twist" is also retiring.  It's one of my favorite "Happy Colors".  The Pocket when assembled is 3 1/2" x 4" and a gift card and treat fit nicely inside.  
It all tucks nicely inside.  Please click on the my shopping button to order your stamp set and dies before they are gone!  And don't forget to add some Lime LimeTwist Cardstock to your list!
If you'd like to make your own little "Pocket" then click on the link below to print off the FREE directions.  Happy crafting!
Have a blessed and crafty day!

3D Thursday Throwback - A Little Cake

Hello, to all on this yet another wet, soggy day in Southern Illinois!  This week is Throwback Thursday so looking back through my projects I though a little cake sounded good this week.  I created a little Birthday Cake using a Tea Light.  A link to FREE directions can be found at the bottom of my post.  Be sure and check that out!
These little tealights are so fun to decorate and make into little cakes.  What a fun way to celebrate someone's special day.
It looks good enough to eat doesn't it.  And when you emboss the cardstock strip that you add around the candle it makes it look even more real.
I also made a sweet little cake box to put the cake in to make it more special for gift giving.  Are you ready to make a little cake?  Below you will find the FREE Direction Link to click on to print of and make your own little cake.  See you next week, where it will be Susan's turn to get crafty.  Can't wait to see what she will have for us!

3D Thursday - Bunny Mini Treat Box

Hello!  Welcome to this week's FREE 3D Thursday!  This week it was my turn to get crafty.  I've come up with a cute little treat holder just in time for Easter.  This treat features our Clear Tiny Treat Boxes.  These boxes come in a set of 16 and are a 2" box.  They cost $7.50 for the set which is pretty reasonable when making a bunch for a class or group of friends.  Let's check it out!
Here's Mrs. Bunny all filled up with Jelly Beans and ready to be delivered to that special someone. I love punch art so this project has a lot of that going on.  I chose to use some of Stampin' Up!s Gingham Gala DSP for the inside of her ears. 
And then here's the backview so you can see her cute bunny tail.
The top view shows all the yummy jelly beans inside the box, which could also hold Hershey Kisses or other fun treats.
One more shot of her darling face.  So are you ready to make your own cute bunny box?  Below just click on the link to your FREE Printable Project Sheet.
