Welcome to my Blog!

So many of my friends have said to me, "Betty, you should have a Blog, it's so easy to do".

Here's my attempt at Blogging. My name is Betty (aka Scottie), I'm from North Carolina. I've been involved in a variety crafts over the years, computer crafts, machine embroidery. I enjoy making cards, boxes, bags and items for the home. Here you will find some of my projects (past and present).

I like to plan ahead, in this case I may be planning too far into the future. I made this card to give to the bride and groom when they get married next year (if they do....LOL). I know the embossing isn't wedding related but the Bride to be thought it was perfect for the occasion when she saw the box I up loaded on July 19th. I think the embossing showed up beautifully on the gold paper.
Let me know what you think.

I'm still in the Christmas Mood

Here's my Christmas milk carton I cut out on my Cricut. The embossed layer was done by using the center part of the Spellbinders Poinsettia Frameability Die on the Cuttlebug.
Here's two views of the milk carton:

Here's a gift box I made today. I used Spellbinders Poinsettia Frameability Die and my Cuttlebug. The poinsettia that is on the box lid, I made and cut it out on my Cricut. The yellow beads I made with hot glue and colored with Tim Holtz Adirondack Alcohol Ink. The tag was made with the center part of the Frameability die and the bottom layer of the tag was a scrap that was left over from the die.
Below are three views of the box:

Here's the Lid

Here's the picture of the other project that I mentioned in my previous post today. Seems like I'm on a roll. I don't think I have created so many new projects as I have the last few days in an extremely long time.
Hello Everyone!
Hope you all are having a great day. The temperature today is in the 80's, which feels super compared to the last couple of days.
I've been working in my craft room again trying to come up with a new project.Here's what I came up with...a Snow Globe Card. . Hope you like it. Just in case you were wondering what the Snow Globe was made of, I used the plastic packaging that the red sticky tape comes in.

I might have another project to post later tonight, so stay turned.

With so many starting to work on their Christmas crafts, I decided to take the plunge. Here's what I came up with.

Yesterday I found some time to work on a card. I used MS Lacy Eyelet Punch, Spellbinders Classic Oval, Recollections Mini Round Gems.

Cuttlebug's Swiss Dots Embossing Folder
Spellbinders Shapeabilities Pendants...Renaissance Hearts
Recollections Mini Round Gems

Here's is my latest card. The butterfly was made with Martha Stewart's Punch All Over The Page. It's a different punch from any I used before. I plan on buying several more of these punches. The punch allows you to punch any where on the page that you want, you are no longer limited to just punching around the edge of the paper any longer.

I saved the punched out part from another project an inserted them here to give the effect of wings for my butterfly.

I have two $10.00 AC Moore Reward Certificates that I have to use before the end of the month of July, I plan to use them to buy more of these punches for sure.

It's been a long time since I have posted anything new here. I finally found the time to up load some images of my latest projects.

This Birthday Card I made for a my daughter's friend, his Birthday is just around the corner, hope he likes it!

Kelly's Birthday is just 3 weeks away. I wanted to make a card that was age appropriate, this day and age that's getting harder to figure out. Thanks to Penny Duncan who supplied the cut file I was able to make this.
Here's the front:

This is what the inside looks like, the right side is an IPod, with one of her favorite singers.

Recently we celebrated our 38 Anniversary. Here's the card I gave my husband.

This morning I created this bag and plan to enter it in to a contest. The cover on top of the bag was another creation by Penny Duncan.
