Halloween countdown

I used a magnetic board to create this Halloween Countdown. I stamped the numbers with the JustRite number set and the words on the magnetic ring are from the small letter set. You move the ring every day to count down the days.

The great thing is nothing is adhered down so I can change it out for Christmas, or another holiday.

The other card is my first attempt at criss cross. Love this concept. It also follows the clothing inspiration from Libby's Little Addiction.

Personalized ornament

Two projects for today...a personalized ornament and a recipe card. I haven't made this type of ornament in a long time. I updated it by stamping first with my JustRite monogram stamper. I had the tassel in my stash from a really, really long time ago. It matched perfect with the paper. Initially I wanted a jingle bell, but couldn't find them.

The recipe is part of a very belated birthday gift for my sister. The rest of the gift will include a limoncello carafe and glasses from Napa Style.

Thanks for visiting!

Tick Tock

Per my husband's request, I made a birthday card for his brother, Joe. I created a clock face using the numbers from the small letter JutRite set. I had a Sizzlit die cut of gears that I hadn't used yet, and pulled that out to add something extra to the clock face. I made my own arrows and attached them with brads.

My trusty Cricut helped me make a title to go along with the clock theme. The patterned paper is some I picked up on clearance at Hobby Lobby.

And since I had spent all that time getting the numbers just so for my clock (I have the inky fingers to proof it!), I brainstormed another project. This is what I came up with:

It's a telling time practice book for my first grader. I stamped a cover and then added pages with blank clocks. I used the large JustRite numbers to stamp a time. Now, she will have to draw in the arrows to reflect the written time.
I bound the book with brads, so I can add and substract pages as she fills it up. Once we've mastered the full hours, it's on to the half hours.

These were fun to make, and pretty quick (once I had the stamp prepped).

Thanks for stopping by!
