My blog is new and I haven't posted much.  I hope to give you more in the near future.  Being on the Spellbinders Design Team I am constantly making new things.  I hope to post these when I can.  You can also go to the Spellbinders web site and check out inspiration alley.  You will find many creative works by many wonderful designers.

On this blog I would like to use it to brings you not only creative cards and layouts, but items you can use as gifts.  I have done a successful boutique in the past, out of my home.  It gave me some extra cash.  Which we all can use.  So I will include ideas, tips, and fun things as I go along.

My husband and I are building a house ourselves, so this keeps me really busy.  So please be patient with me.  I am new to this blog thing, but I hope to post when I can.  I would like to bring you fun and creative ways to make projects for yourself and others.  Hope you check back soon.  Thanks for stopping by.

This is a travel checker set I made.  The front box holds all the pieces.  It was a lot of fun.  You could use it for your kids summer travels, or as party favors.  Let me know if you want the directions.  Hope you have a wonderful day!

Here is a card I made using Spellbinders Die Template Harvest Leaves Two (S4-011), Deckled Mega Rectangles SM (S5-014) and Core'dinations "Chocolate Box" Paper.  You can't really see in the picture, but I folded along the embossed lines of the leaves and used mounting squares to adhere.  This really gives a "real" look.  Very easy to make, try and let me see yours.
