Super cool discovery I have to share

Hey Yall,

I love to shop at http://www.scrapbuck.com/.  If you have not shopped there it is a must do! The prices are really cheap, spend $20 and get free shipping, and you receive you items in SERIOUSLY 1 1/2 days! Crazy I know but super cool.  SO....they now have QuicKutz boarder dies for super cheap so OF COURSE I got some! SCORE!!  Well, they do not work with the Sizzix extended plates in my Bigshot...until now ;)....

 When you use the extended Sizzix plates with a Bigshot there is still a little room left over that card stock didn't seem to fix. WELL, I had an extra used up Cricut mat handy so I though would it work????....WELL....if you cut 3 layers and glue them together it is a PERFECT FIT!!!! and it will not tear up and can be used time and time again!
I though this was super cool and I had to share ASAP!!! Thanks for checking it out and I sure hope this helps someone!!!

Summer Time Goodie Bags

Hey Yall....HAPPY MOTHERS DAY!!!!!

My son will have his last day of school Friday then out for the summer! EEEEEKKKKKK  Since he is still in a special needs class before he start Kindergarten he only has 13 kids in his class.  Next year he will start Kindergarten and I cant wait!!!  He is so smart and has been in school since he was 3 so now I feel he is ready to be with "typical" kids! 

SO.....I usually try to make some goodie bags for the class and his 3 teachers for every occasion.  These are cute "Summer Time" goodie bags.

 I used cricut cartridge "Life is a Beach" for the beach ball.  Page 81 and cut it at 2 inches.
 I used cuttlebug embossing folders for some texture for the kids...."Tiny Bubbles" and "Spots & Dots"
I bought these signs at the Dollar Tree in the teachers class room section.  Then just stamped "Summer Time" on them with alphabet stamps from "Clear Dollar Stamps."  I also wrote a special note on the back for each of my sons friends.

I hope everyone has a special and wonderful Mothers Day!

Hey Yall,

I hope Yall join the fun over at CTO for challenge #61, "Male Birthday" must use circle.  What a great challenge!!!  Everyone always seems to need a male card and a birthday one!  I know I do!  Here is my take on this challenge!

Card base and Envelope - 5 x 6 flat card with matching envelope
Paper stack - Papertrey Ink "Text Style, It's Official"
Ink - White Jelly Roll Pen and Tim Holtz "Brushed Corduroy" distress ink
Circles - Quick Kutz circle die set
1 1/2 Scallop Punch
I used pop dots on all the layers and doodled all over with my white pen. 

I hope Yall like my project for this challenge!! I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!!
