Shake It Up!

Hello! Happy almost May to you. Seriously, April is over. When did this happen? I blinked I guess. Anyway, I made a card. It was a celebration crafting session. I got word that my thesis was approved for defense so I came home and wanted to do something fun. Here's my fun...

I actually wanted to make the card for the Pretty, Pink, Posh Blog Hop but realized that I was an entire day late with my creation! :) Ah well, it was completely fun to make anyway! My first shaker card! Paulina's video about how to make it was so amazingly helpful I don't think that I would have had a clue otherwise!

One step closer to being able to craft whenever I desire! I graduate on Sunday and I defend my thesis on Monday! Hoping all goes well! Check out this post to understand better what I am talking about! :)

So, wish me luck! I need all I can get!

Scrap Happy,

Supplies Used:
Lawn Fawn stamp
Basic Grey Paper

Gift Bags Galore!

You know that moment when you go to wrap your gift and you don't have quite the right sized bag or box for your gift and you scramble around wondering if you should just empty the _______ out of that box and reuse that one? Well, maybe I am the only one who does that last part, but fear not...after using this gift bag punch from We R Memory Keepers, you will seriously never have to wonder that again. Seriously.

Once I figured out how to use this We R Memory Keepers punch, I seriously could *not* stop making bags. I only needed six bags for Create & Craft that is happening in London right now (and yes, it thrills me just a bit that my cute little bags are in London :) but I couldn't stop and made nine of them instead!

I love how they are versatile in that you can secure the top with ribbon or you can leave it loose to make handles and fill the bag with tissue!

I just love how they all turned out and how it is so easy to personalize the bag for the person it is intended for! It doesn't get much easier than that! Thanks for stopping by today, it was nice to share something crafty! It's been a while and things have been busy as I explained in my last post! Until next time...

Scrap Happy,

Reasons Why...

Hello my lovely, neglected blog readers. I have been absent from blogging lately and I am sorry. I have mostly been getting crafty for assignments and then mailing them on their happy way and not taking photos of them. I am sorry. I think of my blog often. However, I hope you'll understand that I've been doing a lot of this...

While drinking gallons of this...

All while trying to be this...

And finally finishing this...

While simultaneously trying to maintain this...

So forgive me, if you will, for my lack of craftiness. When all is done and I've defended my thesis and walked across that stage, I promise that I will be sharing again. Until then, say a little prayer for all of the above to be done with grace and with dignity intact! Thanks! :)

Scrap Happy,
