Hi all thanks for stopping by today. I had so much fun creating this cute little card as a  Creative Kuts design team project.

 I used double sided specialty paper from K & Company to make up this card. The cutting file can be purchased at . here is the link. This is a great card to have in your stash I have used the file to make a graduation card and put money in the box, in the store it is shown as a birthday card and now I have created a Halloween card with it!!

Holiday organizer

I have been seeing lots of holiday organizers on pintrest and blogs but none with directions so I decided to make my own. this is what I came up with and I think it will work fine for my needs.
I like to keep a list of gifts I buy because I have a habit of starting early and then hiding the gifts until Christmas. the problem is I most always forget where I hid a few of them and find them after Christmas has come and gone. So with my new organizer I think I will also note where I have hidden the gift. It might help!!
My organizer is very simple and does not have any additional decorations on the front just the beautiful card I used because this is going to be in my purse and I don't want it getting stuck on anything so I just used a ribbon to tie it closed. How did I make it??
Easy 1 piece of 12 x 12 card stock scored at 3, 6 & 9 inches then I turned it a quarter turn and scored at 4 inches. Fold the 4 inch piece up and accordion fold on the other score lines add some ribbon under the fold at the edges and glue in place when you glue the edges closed. I printed out some lined card stock and cut it into 2 inch strips to fit into the pockets. I printed some titles and punched them out with an oval punch glued them on and I am ready to go!!
thanks for stopping by.  Please come back on Sept. 29 & 30 for Creative Kuts Halloween blog hop for some fun Halloween projects and inspiration.

printed digital scrapbook

I have my digital scrapbook pages printed into albums through ArtsCow. I love how the albums turn out I usually design my own pages and upload them but if I want to make a quick book I use their templates Artscow is having a sale right now you can make a 6x6 or a 7.5 inch album for 99 cents with free shipping. What a great way to see if you like the albums they print. You will get the 99 cents price if you enter this code at checkout Z099BOOKXKH5B 
here is the website if you want to give it a try. I already picked the photos I want to use now to just get them on pages.  They also do an assortment of photo gifts I have made key chains , tree ornaments each year, purses, playing cards etc. I have not been disappointed. Will post a pic of my new 99 cents 6x6 album when it arrives.
