Sweet Baby Girl Gifts

Welcome, first off, sorry for being late today. We were out of town yesterday and when we settled in for the evening, I started watching a movie late and before I knew it, 1 am rolled around and I forgot! Better late than never!  Last weekend I went back to my hometown for my nephew and his wife baby shower.  They are having a little girl so in addition to the gifts I bought, I knew I had to make something since I am the crafty person in the family.  I knew I wanted to make a cute sign to hang in the room and with the help of my Silhouette Cameo and the Silhouette Online store, I made this one.  I purchased the wood at Walmart and used this adorable saying I bought from the store.  I used different pinks and silver in it.  Loved how it turned out.
I purchased some onesies, but who wants plain ones!  I found some cute sayings and added to them.  Her name is going to be Lyric so I made one with a monogram and her name.  Loved the name too, but I forgot to ask what her middle name was going to be so just used the first.

                                            Close up , used white glitter vinyl so hard to see in pic
I finished off with a card I made using elements from Anna Griffin and with my purchased items, the baby gift was a huge success!!!  Hope this inspires you to try something new for your next gift.  Till next week, happy crafting!

Back To School Layout

Time for all the kiddies to head back to school in some areas. I know both of my granddaughters started yesterday and my grandson leaves for college this weekend.  Time is moving to quickly.  Well a little update for sharing my project.  I told you last week that I was doing some purging.  Well I have been on a roll and it is unbelievable how much stuff a person can pile up over the years.  The Good Will loves me, but the garbage people hate me!!!  I think in the next few days I will be finished.  I decided to go through all the photos and memories that my sons gave me all their life and sort threw and give to them before something happens cause if they had to sort through the stuff I did, they would just pitch it lol.  I laughed and I cried going through the memories.  My sons are 36 and 42 now and I even had their baby teeth.  I am sure they will be amused by that.  It is almost ready to send their way for their family too look at and boy did that clean a lot out!!!  Now to share my project.  Not much time to craft during this week, but I had this layout ready so I thought I would share.  Next week I will share a baby gift I am making which needs to be done in 2 days!!!  This layout was made with svg files from Treasurebox Designs.  I love all her wonderful files and they are so easy to put together.  I used bright primary colors and will be perfect for the little ones pictures.  Well I hope you all have a crafty week and I am hoping to get my craft room back and get these machines humming again.. I am thinking about the new Cameo 3 and it might need to find a home with my other machines soon!

Been M I A

Hello friends. Yea I have been MIA for a couple weeks, but with good reason. You know I told you after I painted my craft room that I was NEVER going to paint again, well....I did. If I hadn't wanted it done this week, I would have hired someone. We have been tossing around the idea of selling our house which we have lived in for 23 years. We have a upstairs and as we get older harder to make those steps fifty times a day. The big dilemma was the house is almost paid for and do we really want to start over again with my hubby going to retire in a few more years? Well, for now we decided to hold off, but wanted to do somethings.  Most will have to be contracted and we have had people looking and estimates with one complete major project that will be great when done, but I hate the thought of starting it for the mess.  After it is done, then someone will come paint downstairs.  This week I painted our bedroom and we bought new furniture.  I am also purging so much crap, the Good Will will love me.  Why is it when you do one room, the entire house gets torn up?  We still have to go back to Ikea for the closet built ins this weekend and then we should be done upstairs except some real cleaning of closets.  So I have had no time for projects to share.  That doesn't mean I have worked, I completed two window signs and made several t-shirts.  Today I just want to shout out to Robin Morris and all the talented designers over at
She shares her files for personal use and if you are into Disney and any other characters, this is the place to go.  I urge you to check it out.  Now on a personal note, if any of my readers are crafters that do craft shows and sell things, I have a bunch of blanks I want to sell as a lot for one great price.  It includes jewelry, hardware, burlap items and more.  I am no longer doing craft shows and want to get this out.  These are great for the vinyl users.  Just shoot me an email at happyscrapperdiane@yahoo.com and put in the subject line blanks and I will get a picture of all the items.  Most are still in packages.  Thanks and have a crafty week.

Sharing some things with you.

Hello and glad to be back with a couple things. Our vacation in Savannah was wonderful, but extremely hot. I also picked up a little bug while I was there, but nothing serious. Didn't stop the sightseeing we did. I got back and painted my craftroom. Lets say this is the last time I am painting a room. These old bones hurt so bad that I think I ate Tylenol!!! Just some trim work around windows and door on the baseboards, but that will be when it cools some. Told hubby it will be hired done for the rest!!!  I am still trying to get my room unpacked and things sorted, but have a couple things to share with you today.  Hopefully, I will get back to scrapping my Disney trip from December knowing I had two vacations after that!!!  Behind of course.  Today I am sharing a layout I made to donate to a friend for a fundraiser she is doing.  This is the Bushel and Peck layout from PPBN Designs which is now www.svgcuttabledesigns.com   
This was really easy and quick to put together.  Check out this and other the great scrap pages Nikki has on her website.
I told you last time about this facebook group I am in and now she has a website and this is for free svg files for personal use.  It is called www.svgcoop.com and Robin and her talented designers share their work and I have made several of the designs.  Here are three I made to use on some pages I will be working on for that Disney trip.  She also has a facebook page so check it out and be sure to support her with only using for your personal items.  Hope to get back to scrapping this week so till next week, have a crafty week!

Just a couple projects

Well I am on vacation, but wanted to get a couple things to share with you. I will probably not have a post for a couple weeks because when I get home, the painting starts and I want to get it done!!!  I will feel much better with a freshly painted room.  This first project is card I created for my grandson who is a golfer.  I made this for his birthday in May and don't think I shared it.  It was created with a file from the Silhouette store and done on my cameo.
These bracelets were just done with a font on my computer and I got these bracelets at http://myvinyldirect.com   These are really good quality and I got earrings to match, but have not done anything to them.  They have lots of great blanks to make your own designs, so check them out!!!  Hopefully, you all had a super holiday and will see you soon!
