This Fundraising hop is to help 5 year old Brad, who has Type 1 Diabetes and is trying desperately to get his "DAD" (Diabetic Alert Dog")

In honor of the this years theme, I selected to do a project with Huckleberry Hound.

The shape of this file fits perfectly on the side of the JB Candy Caddy Holder die. 

I used some wilderness looking papers and added a border with some fish directly under the canoe. 
The sentiment Is from the Jaded Blossom Great Outdoors stamp set. The caddy is filled with mini candy bars which are always need on any canoe trip.

NDOS - Girls Love Mail

Last Thursday, the company I work for celebrated a National Day Of Service. All employees are encouraged to participate by supporting a local charity.

Because I work from home, I selected to write letters for the Girls Love Mail charity. These letters are gifts to newly diagnosed breast cancer patients. 

Rather than just write a letter, I made some pretty note cards to put my hand written notes in. 

Here are a couple I did...
I hope this letters will bring some hope and comfort to those that receive them. 

Ribbon die cut is from the Cricut Design Studio. 
Sentiments are from Scrappy Moms Stamps Believe in Miracles stamp set. 

Have a crafty day!

Happy Monday!!

It's a quick treat that will make anyone who's received it laugh. 
The Knight Bites stamp set is one of my favorites and  it worked well with the Dimensional Dies

Jaded Blossom May Release Day 4- Swinging By!

It's Thursday and day four of the May Jaded Blossom release week. 
What a great week and so many fantastic ideas using these new stamps and dies. There is still more so read on!

Today we have another fun and versatile stamp set to show you. The Monkey See, Monkey Do stamp set is super cute. It has sentiments that can be used for many types of projects.


I am  using the Luggage Tag Dies released earlier this week to make a treat bag topper. This fits the 2.25" Jaded Blossom treat bags perfect. 

I simple folded some card stock and lined up the top of the die just above the fold so when it cut it was still folded in half. I trimmed of the bottom to what I felt was a proper topper length and attached it to my filled treat bag. 

I stamped the sentiment from today's stamp set on white card stock and hand cut the words before attaching them to the topper. 


The cute Spider Man is from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons here

Here is a look at the complete sets of stamps and dies being featured by the Design Team today.

Monkey See. Monkey Do

Jaded Blossom May Release Day 1 - Dino-mite!

Welcome to day one of the Jaded Blossom  May Release week!

It's another fantastic month of release projects and stamps this month.

And, starting off the week, we have a new die along with a couple Dino-mite stamp sets.


I used the new luggage tag dies to make a cute treat holder.

I took two of the tags, scored that  1" up from he bottom and glued them together. 


I then used a 1" x 2" strip of paper, scoring 1/2" from each and to make the sides just glue then in place.

Filled it with chocolate squares and tied it all up with some ribbon.

You'll find the cute dino in the  SVG Cutting Files Dino Migration

I used the sentiment from the new Dinotastic stamp set which I stamp on a banner from Dimensional Banner dies.

Here's a look at the complete stamp sets and die showcased today.

4) Link it up here by 6/2

Seems there is always someone feeling under the weather. So its good to have cards and things like this on hand. 
I love how this little tissue card turned out. 

You can find several tutorials online as to how to make it. It's simply a sheet of paper wrapped around a travel size tissue pack.

The chipmunk is from the SVG Store and part of a page layout kit called Let's Go Camping. I turned him into this little forest nurse by adding the nurse cap and thermometer from the Nurse Olivia file.
The title cute file is from Miss Kate's Cuttables.

The phrase from the Forest Friends stamp set is also a perfect fit for this project. 
I also used the JB Mini Tag Dies.

I hope you will join us and link up your JB stamp inspired project on the Jaded Blossom Blog. Please be sure you check out the challenge guidelines before linking.
