Bye Bye Google Reader!

Happy Sunday!

 I popped by real quick to let you know that Google Reader officially stops working tomorrow (July 1st). What this means is that if you are following me though Google Reader, you will no longer be receiving my updates/new posts.
 No need to fret though!

 If you are currently using Google Reader, all you have to do is switch to another service like BlogLovin'. The process is easy, you just sign up for an account on their site and import your Google Reader (they do it for you!). Easy Peasey! I have been using BlogLovin' a couple days and I really like it!
Follow on Bloglovin

Google Reader will shut down tomorrow, July 1st! If you don't want to miss any posts, please click HERE to following my blog with BlogLovin'.

I know that my blog has been dead the last couple of weeks. I have had a ton of stuff going on. I will be back in the next week or so with some new projects! 

I hope you have a wonderful day!

Thrifty Thursday

Happy Thursday!

Today is Thrifty Thursday over on the My Creative Time Blog. So for 

Thrifty Thursday's the goal is to use scraps, extra's, or recycle something that wouldn't normally be used to make a card or paper project. Today there is an extra challenge, where we were asked to use circles.

I made a circle shaped card. (Super creative, I know...)
Normally when I make a card, I start with the cut on the front and then go from there. For today's card, I dug through my scrap paper box and found the coordinating pieces of paper first. I was thinking it would be cute with a butterfly or bug cut, but then I found the bee svg and I knew he was the one. 
Paper: PaperTrey Ink, Simple Stories, Core'dinations (All scraps)
Bee svg: Designs on Cloud 9, Cute Bugs
Banner Die: My Creative Time, Chocolate Greetings Stamp Set
Sentiment: My Creative Time, We Are Family Stamp Set
Face stamp: Peachy Keen Stamps, PK-182 Sweet and Silly Face Assortment

I hope you have a wonderful day!

3-D Wednesday!

Happy Wednesday!

Today is 3-d Wednesday over on the My Creative Time blog. 

I created a fun candy treat, that you could leave as a surprise for a child or even someone you love.
 Fun right!?!
The mini Snickers bars are wrapped in a scalloped Tag. I stamped the sentiments prior to gluing them around the candy bars. The candy bars slide right out. making them easy to  access.  :)  I used the Stitched Journal Die folded in half to create the topper.  I secured it with adhesive from my ATG gun, glue dots would work as well. The banners were attached with a single staple.
Papers: Echo Park, A Perfect Summer
Sentiments, My Creative Time, Chocolate Greetings Stamp Set & You're Brilliant Stamp Set
Light Bulb Die: My Creative Time, You're Brilliant Stamp Set
Tag Die, My Creative Time, Tag Dies
Topper Die: My Creative Time, Stitched Journal Die
Large Banner Die: My Creative Time: Vintage Stitched Label Dies
Smaller Banner Die: My Creative Time: Chocolate Greetings Stamp Set
Bag: Michael's, Wilton 4"x 8" Treat Bags

Whew! I am off to eat a snickers now!
