My Creative Time for Me Friday Tip of the Day

Hello Beautiful Crafty People!

Welcome to another Friday Tip of the day and my monthly Guest Design Spot.

Did you see all the new yummy stamps and Dies Miss Emma has just released? Of course you
did! That girl is on a roll with these and whipping them out as quick as we all can grab them up!
Love Love Loving them all!

A Stylish but Quick Luggage Tag..
Easy Peasy lets go on vacation pleasy!!

Ok I have to admit i had problems with my luggage tag. I did laminate it on my brother cool touch laminator. Sometimes i have visions in my head hot it will work but it doesn't! SO here it in and again pics at night cause of working so hope not to bad. Picture doesn't do it justice. I tried to edit it about 50 times but the internet was running so poorly it wasn't loading. so no editing. So I i will  show you the back side that the color doesn't look a thing like it should but editing software is not cooperating.  The back has all your info on it. This darn picture looks all green and these are shades of aqua blue. Really mad....I got to quit photographying at night! Cause there are some funky things that got done with this one. Well hope you just get inspiration to make one. I promise i will get the good camera and learn to use it. I got my room all set up now for video and pics.

A Birthday Gift Tags
I used "Celebrate Good Times" set and of course the Tag Dies
I used Elmos party cricut cart to cut Elmos and then added the ice cream die cut.
Elmo was cut at 2" The paper is from My Minds Eye. The actual tag paper was
printed on my imagine from the cart "Imagine More"
Next I used the set "Celebrate Good Times" and this set comes with this adorable cupcake die. I used
Paper from the My Minds Eye "Lime Twist" for the cupcake die and then wrapped pink twine
that is also from My Minds Eye line.

I used real chunky glitter on the ice cream cone layer, also used
the Bonash Foils for the flame

These are great sets and wonderful if you need to whip out a cute tag or card without
breaking out the die cutting machines. Sometimes you just don't have time!

One more project
This was a quick card. I printed the pattern paper of my imagine more cart. Use kraft card stock for base. Used the circle and scallop die and the new set All around everything. And I used an older set called "encouraging words"

TIP #1
How to make your own tear off pad!!! I was reading alot online of how to make
a tearoff pad since you probably remember that was part of the blog planner book I
did last Tip of the day. Every article I came across showed using "Notebook Compound" well
it is not accessible from any stores you have to order online...heck no I don't like to
wait when I got something to do! So I went to Hobby Lobby and purchased "Rubber Cement"

Next you gather up all the pages you want on your pad and then take a sheet of chipboard to put as a
back. Next I used those little metal clips to hold it in place. Now here is an extra tip....
get yourself some cheap small paint brushes cause this rubber cement comes with a brush
attached to the lid and its a MONGO brush and it gets too sloppy for me and hard to
keep where you want it. So if you use a smaller brush you can control the application much better. I also did several coats.
Place really heavy object on top of it while you are doing it as well to help
keep pages nice and tight and secure. I also want to make a note that you should
Put a manilla folder or something scrap on the bottom to catch all the excess and then
before it has time to dry just move it slightly on the paper to keep that from
adhering to your tablet. I will be doing a video this weekend so stayed turned for that and show
the new blog planner book I made for Jessica. She is not allowed to watch cause she doesn't
have it in her hot little hand yet. 

TIP #2
(more like a SHOUT OUT to Ikea for yet another fab product)
My favorite thing is staying organized... (Yes if your OCD and your know it clap your hands)
... so another Tip for today is products you can utilize to do that and stay stylish! 
We all want our scrap rooms to look swank don't we! I love the retro style and colors like the aqua
 (hey not everything can be pink! which is my fav!) 

I am so getting this the next time my daughter in law is coming to visit I will have her first slide by Ikea and pick this up for me. I used to live close to one but now (insert tears...booo hoooo I don't) probably a 
good thing for my wallet since I want everything. My hubby is always a sport though he would take me 
there and shop for hours with me. He even picked up that wire curtain rod thing I used to hang my
stamps on from another tip of the day when he went to visit his daughter last time in Atlanta. 

So Ikea has this kitchen cart on wheels (clap your hands cause your happy and you know it) 
so that you can wheel it around your happy room when you need it in different spots!! I love the style!
It is $49.95 I like that store because everything is so reasonable.

TIP #3
SAVING MONEY who doesn't want to do this!
When I plan to "visit" Hobby Lobby, Michaels or hey anywhere really
that I need to get something I go to and at the top you will see a "coupon"tab...just click it, type in Michaels or JCPenny or whatever store you are getting ready to shop (even online coupons too for those of you like me who don't like to actually shop physically in the store!) and a list of coupons will come up. I never leave the housewithout checking for them if I know I am going to stop at stores to pick something up.

Well i hope I gave you some good tips and you thought my projects were "ok"


  1. Great tips, awesome projects! Lee-Ann :)

  2. Debbie ~ OMG! Not only do you have some FABULOUS projects ( which I LOVED ALL of them) but your tips are FASNTASTIC! I am going to try that note pad thing! My Ikea is a little distance for me ~ Thank Goodness ~ saves on the wallet here! Again ~ GREAT creations, AWESOME tips and FUNNY post!

  3. Awesome projects, love all the tips.

  4. Great job on your post with the beautiful tags tips and tools. The cart looks like a good one.
    About photos and colors...what kind of lighting used makes such a big difference. If you have an Ott Light true color light that might help. I think I have seen the small version for around $30 to $40 at Joanns??
