YES! You are the right page! I just have a new name! :) After realizing that I do more than just scrapbooking, I've decided to change the name and will be changing the look.. I'd do a whole new blog but I'd hate to have to start all over.
Here you will find scrapbooking ideas. There's a ton of older posts that used the Cricut, but lately I haven't been using it much and well, my sewing machine is gaining more miles by the day.

Cute Little Box - Directions

My Memory card won't read right now for my camera, so I'm hoping that these quick drawings that I made in Paint will work out! (LOL, boxes taken with my camera phone)

I used ribbon to decorate, mainly to cover up the seams and such. also it makes a nice bow!

These are 4 1/2 x 4 1/2 x 3 3/4
Perfect for holding the 4x4 coasters!

And for those that missed the link on how to make the coasters, please CLICK HERE, it will direct you to Split Coast Stampers!

Altered Coasters!

I've been not really motivated to work on my Christmas Gifts this year, mainly cause I have no idea what to get people, but also I don't have the money to get anything fancy.

This link was shared on the Cricut Board - PHOTO TILES and I thought that it was a wonderful idea! I ran out to Menards and purchased 48 Tumbled Tiles (figuring I can make 12 sets of 4)
I already had the mod podge and acrylic sealer from previous projects. The tile was $5.48 for 9, and I used my 10% off discount. With my discount, it came to about 61 cents per tile, or $2.47 per 4 piece set. I didn't think that was too bad!

I have 7 that are completely done, and another 8 that are drying. I just have to get some pictures for the rest of them (heehee.. hopefully my coworkers will help me and get pictures to me)

Here is a picture of 2 of them that are done!

Butterflies from Hong Kong

I recieve many questions on where I got these butterflies.
I just call them Butterflies from Hong Kong well, because I purchased them on Ebay, and the seller was in Hong Kong lol :)

The sellers name is gift_stylish . I have purchased many times from them, and have nothing but good things to say. Last year, I got 2 Hello Kitty Necklaces and they arrived in plenty of time for Christmas.

I just checked their actions, looks like they don't have the multi colored butterflies up right now, but there are Gold and Silver ones. They are the Iridescent Fabric Assorted Butterfly .
