Here is the Holiday banner I made.  The paper is from Hobby Lobby and the side area Christmas ribbon.  I used a boarder punch on the top green piece.  They are all trimmed on the bottom with pearls. The letters were cut from Winter Woodland and the wreath it is on was cut from Joy to the Season. The "H" has a thick felt tree and a couple Iamroses skeleton leaves.  The "O" has a cute butterfly that was perfect.  Yes I know there are no butterflies in the winter but oh well.  The "D" and a couple other letter just got a large beaded pearl.  Love, Thanks Robbin

Spooky Banner

I love this banner.  It was so much fun to make.  I recently was in a "craft show" at our little towns celebration day.  I was the only one that showed up.  I used Happy Hauntings cartridge for the letters and some of the add ons.  The fence on the sides is the Martha Halloween Iron Fence punch{two layers}.  I used The Erie collection from Basic Grey for the back ground paper. The "O" has a plain grey headstone, I highlighted it with side of my foam ink applicator.  The RIP small punches is a Martha punch.  The "P" has one black Iamroses rose and the RIP was cut out at about 2.5" I used a Halloween look ribbon to hang it with.  Thanks Robbin

~Tim Coffey~ Plastic Bag Flower

Hello, Crafters.  I am really excited to show you the plastic bag flower I made.  I will say it is hard to take a picture of this.  I love how it turned out.  The paper from Basic Grey's Hopscotch collection is perfect for the flower.  I also used Iamroses leaves, cameo, rolled flower from MFTStamps and a couple flowers from Recollection. I did make a video of the flower explaining everything.  Check it out.  I am so excited about it.  I love flowers.  I could sit and make flowers all day.  Well till my back and hip tell me to stop.  Well Thanks for stopping by, Robbin XOXO

Rhonda's sample Butterfly Ablum

Hello, Crafters.  I am so excited I am having my first Craft Class. I decide to start with a Butterfly Album class.  The kit will come with 4 each of the butterfly cut outs and the paper to cover all 8 sides.  You can also bring your own paper.  You need to have enough to cover 8 sides which would be  4 12x12 piece of scrapbook paper will work.  If you want all your pages different then you will need 8 pages.  You can also choose to paint them(see Grunge sample).  I do offer a set of 6 cut outs(12 sides) so you can do a page per month. This paper you would have to provide your self, too. You will need to provide your own fast drying adhesive and a craft knife.  I use Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive.   I will be having the classes Tuesday August 23rd from 6-8 P.M. and Saturday August 27th from 10-12 A.M.  The seats are limited so please RSVP right away.  The cost of the kit and class is $15.00.  If you would like to bring your own paper the cost is $10.00.  A set of 6 for the months is $15.00 Please look at the next two post for more samples(sample paper is not part of the kit) and check out my videos on Youtube, Crazedcrafter.

Drummond's Scrap/Guest Book

Hey, Crafters.  I love making Scrap/Guest books.  The first 5 pages are scrap pages and the next 6 are for guest to sign.  I try to leave blank pages at the end.  That way if they want to add more they can.  Drummond worked with my husband and retired in July.  I wanted to make him something nice.  I went down to the local scale they work out of.  I took pictures of his badge, car plate{upper right}, his name plate{inside the book}and him with his car.  The blue that covers the book is the color of the squad cars.  They also use dark blue and yellow the car decals and patches.  It is hard to see in pictures that I used a zig zag stich around the edge.  I used Platinum School Book for the letters and numbers  The ribbon were from the Stand and Salute cartridge. The badge and plate on the top left and right are pictures.  The badge looks real in person.  The middle right is an actual patch.  I added a rolled rose and aluminum roses to the bottom of the patch.  The gun is a picture of the actual gun they carry.  The sign under says, "The Few, The Proud, The M.V.E."  Then his dates of service.  He loved the book.  You know when you get done with something.  Then you pat yourself on the back.  This was one of them.  LOVE IT!!!  Thanks for stopping, Robbin XOXO


I was going nuts!!!  I was not able to do anything with my blog.  Everything I was posting was being saved as a draft.  Wow, was I getting mad.   I finally found the right update instructions.  So, I will be going nuts posting new pictures and all that.  Thanks Robbin XOXO Have a great week!!!

Jessica's Baby Shower~The Scrapoholic~ Challenge

I was getting ready to make a card for Jessica's baby shower. When I sat down to catch up on Facebook. I found this Saturday Sketch Challenge that The Scrapoholic made. I loved it and didn't have to think about it at all. Thanks Scrapoholic!!!
I used the Cricut Moter's Day cartridge to cut the top notes. I used my Gypsy to cut the 5 sizes ranging from 3.75" down to 2.25". I used a lace ribbon across the front and embossed the "It's a Girl" in white. I printed her name with Word on my computer. The paper I used was from the Sweet Stack from DCWV. Then I sponged the edge of the card with pink ink from Michael's $1 inks. Jessica loved the card. Thanks for stopping by my Blog today. Please stop by CrazedCrafter on Youtube and subscribe. Happy Sunday to all!!! Robbin

~Black & White~ Wedding framed Layout

Hi, Crafters. I made this framed wedding shadow box for a neighbor. I started with the shadow box frame. I do not know them. It is hard to make something for someone you don't now.I knew I wanted to use the Tim Holtz sewing room die. I used black paint and then put crackly medium on then painted it white. You can see I did the same technique on the large chipboard Q. Then once I painted the dress form. I knew everything had to be black and white. I made a frame for the dress for to be in. I used pleated box satin for the "dress". I tried putting several thing on the top but nothing worked. I added 4 black Iamroses to the corner off the dress box and a white Martha butterfly. I layered 3 stripes of tulle on the bottom cut a tuxedo top out of the Cricut Billionaire cartridge. The Mr&Mrs is cut with the Sweethearts cartridge at 2.5" Then layered 3 black and white paper together from the Paper Studio. Love the way it turned out. Thanks for stopping by. Hugs Robbin XOXO
