Halloween Paint Can

Hello everyone! Today I am showing you one of the creations I made for GIBBS 4 Swap on the Cricut Messageboard. I went with a Halloween theme, since my partner said that her family loves that holiday, I thought I'd take and run with the idea! Here are the pictures of the can. It really is hard getting all angles of it- but I hope I showed you as much of it as possible!

Please tell me what you think! I love comments!

Happy Birthday Card for Kayla

Hello everyone! I am happy to show you a card I slapped together! HAHA! Yes, slapped together- made this card in 15 minutes while rushing out the door on Friday evening! I had some stamped images on hand, some embossed cardstock from a swap, so I quickly decided what I'd like to do. The birthday card was for a 17 year old girl. Hard to decide what to do, when they are that age! HAHA! So, I decided a Tilda stamp was appropriate, with the Happy Birthday embossed cardstock. I took some Distress ink over the cardstock (Tim Holtz Broken China). I colored the Tilda image with prismacolor pencils using the gamsol technique. I raised the image using pop dots, tied light blue grosgrain ribbon, added a swirl clip, and tada! I hope you like it! I impressed myself by getting this done that quickly, and was still happy with the outcome!

I love comments! Please let me know what you think!

You're such a block head Charlie Brown

Happy Wednesday Everyone!!!
Today's post is about another GIBBS 3 project! The phrase used was: "You're such a block head Charlie Brown." I used ALOT of word association with this one! I thought- blocks are made of wood... this shelf is made of wood- hmmm... Why don't I alter this?! I had it for a while- just hadn't had a right spot for it.

I repainted it, sprayed it with Stampin' Up! Smooch Spritz, added some swirls with copper Viva Decor Pearl Pen, added some Prima Flowers, stickles, and lace. I really like how it turned out. The pictures don't do it justice. It was a very hard object to photograph.

I'd love to hear what you think! I love comments!

Time Flies GIBBS 3

Happy Monday Everyone! I hope you all had a fantastic weekend! The next project was Time Flies for GIBBS 3. The thought that went thru my head was you gotta scrapbook the time and memories before it flies! So I made a mini tag album out of an envelope! I really like how it turned out. The video with instructions can be found HERE.

Below are the rest of the pictures.

Please let me know what you think! Thanks for looking! Have a wonderful week!

Not That It's All Cracked Up To Be GIBBS 3

Here is another project I did for my partner Teri from GIBBS 3 on the Cricut Messageboard. I took the phrase "Not That It's All Cracked Up To Be" and decorated a bare picture frame from Michael's. I used Tim Holtz Crackle Paint and one of his stamps and did a heat emboss on some thick cardstock. I used some Tim Holtz washers for the inside of the flowers along with some smaller punched out circles and flowers from a Stampin Up punch. I am unsure of the exact punch that was used. I took the white prima's and decorated them with StazOn ink and the Tim Holtz version of glimmer mist.

I would love to hear your thoughts! Comments are greatly appreciated! Thanks for looking!

What Was I thinking? GIBBS 3

I altered a journal for my partner Teri in the GIBBS 3 swap on the Cricut Messageboard. The phrase was: "What was I thinking?" I made this for her so she could write her thoughts down.

I used lots of bling and primas. I'm not sure what brand the paper was that I used to cover the notebook, but I can say that I got the notebook from the dollar bin at Michael's. Please let me know what you think!

Here is another GIBBS 3 project I made.
The phrase is : Gibber's Do It Old Tool Style

I used Smooch Spritz for the shimmer, viva decor pearl pen in copper, and brown stazOn ink for the stamped lettering. I didnt use ANY cricut in this whatsoever. I used stamps, MS punch, stickers, and OLD tools to make these for her and her family. I thought it'd be nice for her to use them on scrapbook pages or something of that sort.
