I'm BACK!!!!!

It's been a long while since I've posted or even created anything crafty.  Moving and going back to school took some adjusting to.  But now everything is coming together and I am learning to incorporate all the things I love with all the new things in my life.  I am excited to get back to my crafting and sharing what I love.  I hope that all of you that have followed me in the past will continue to do so.   I promise to enchant you with all my new and wonderful ideas and creations.  let's get this party started!!!!

Throwback Thursday with My Creative Time

Good morning and I hope you are having a great day.  It has been a while since I have done any kind of challenge or posted on my blog for that matter.  Life sometimes gets in the way.  But enough of that, I wanted to share my entry for the Throwback Thursday Challenge over at My Creative Time, with Emma.  There are tons of stamp and die companies out now, but I really enjoy her creations and the quality of her products and customer service.  Hope you enjoy my project it is a Heart Treat box holder, this file came from Design Cloud9, love their cutting files.  I made about 30 of these for my daughter's 3rd grade class.

For this project I used a very tiny stamp from one of Emma's first collections "You Had me at Chocolate" stamp set.  This was perfect for the tiny heart tag I made for each box.

Well I hope you enjoy this project and I hope you have a Great day.  See you all later....

Joy' Design Team Challenge - Metal Team 1

Good Morning!  Welcome to our first DT Challenge for 2012!!!!  This week we were challenged to create something using Metal!  Oh, the possibilities..... So I decided, since Valentine's Day is just around the corner, why not create a Layout that I can use for our Annual Picture.  So this is what I cam up with.

I used a sheet metal for this LO.  So that I could make some magnets with the stamped words.  For the words I used the Everyday Occasion Stamp set from  I made the words into magnets so I can move them around. 

Don't forget to go and checkout the rest of the Amazing Design Teams creations at .  Thank you for stopping by and if you are interested in more of Joy's Awesome stamps just go to .  Have a Great day.

Winter Holiday Blog Hop

Good morning, so happy you could join us for this fun Hop.  If you came here from Yolanda Anthony -, then you are in the right place.  If not please start at the beginning with Denise Lewis - VinDeeLoo - .   This Hop is for fun and we were asked to create something related to Winter/Christmas... So I made a couple of items to decorate my living room.  Very simple projects.  I printed this word collage and then just framed it, next I printed out some digital prints and made a simple banner and attached it to some ribbon.  For my third project I took a Styrofoam cone and covered it with red glitter, then hot glued it to a glass candle holder and voila!!! 

Well there you have it.  I hope you have enjoyed this projects.  Now onto your next stop.  Which is
