Happy Halloween

Every holiday my Great-Nephew asks his “Golly” (That’s Me!) for treat bags/boxes to take to school for his class party.
This Halloween I made these adorable little round boxes...

I used a couple of different files to cut these out with my Silhouette Cameo3.
Then added the Green Nuvo Crystal Drops around the tops for a little “pop” of color.
If course the little spiders wouldn’t be complete without google eyes!

I hope everyone has a great Halloween!
Stay safe,

You're Amazing

Remember that!  You're Amazing!

Today's card is a matchbook fold styled card with little Spellbinder cacti adorning the bottom flap.

I felt like the two strips of gold washi tape gave it a little something to draw the eye to.  This Spellbinders die set is just too cute for words!
I hope this card make the recipient smile as much as I did while I made it.  
Thanks for visiting today and stay crafty my friends!

Hello friends, 
I recently discovered the wonder of Tonic Studios' Nuvo Crystal Drops ❤️
Would you look at how beautifully rounded they dry?  And they come in an amazing rainbow of colors!
I do not have every color they offer but I did buy "a few" Haha.
They are much more affordable than enamels dots...for me anyway. 

I purchased these from   but search around for the best price 😉

Hello friends, 
Today I have a card that I made for a sweet little girl that I've known since she was born. We call her Katie bug, so it's only fitting that I make her a ladybug card ☺️.
I used my Silhouette Cameo3 to make this and used a Lori Whitlock file from the Silhouette Design Store. 

This card was so much fun to make and getting to see my little friend's face when she received it, was even better!
I hope you are all well and have a great week ahead!
Happy crafting,

I didn't disappear all together completely.  I have been over on Instagram posting photos because it's a bit quicker and I can do it on the run.
Won't you come see My Instagram Page ?
Crafting has not stopped, but neither has life :)
Love you to you all!

I'm Back!

Hello Friends!
Remember Me?  HaHa, probably not!
Wow, 2015 had some pretty crazy ups and downs for my family.  I am working on typing up a summary of how the year went after May of 2015.  (That seems to be when I ''dropped of the face of the earth!" lol)

When I get it finished I will post a link in my regular blog post and let you all know where to go to read it.  It won't be a regular post, but I will make it a page on the blog to keep it separate so if anyone doesn't care to read it...they don't have to.  :-)

On to more fun stuff!

Valentine's Day is just around the corner and I have been playing around with a ''new to me'' die that I found in the clearance isle at one of the craft stores here in town.
It's the "Where Women Cook" Milk Carton Box die by Sizzix. (item # 559196)  It was marked down from $29.99 to $9.99!  Nice!

Here are some of the little boxes I made with this gem!

I left the bottoms open so that candy and prizes can be put inside and then I will close them up.

I think they are just too cute!
What do you think?
The possibilities are endless with this die.  I can't wait to try out other ideas!

Until next time my friends,
The Traveling Ladybug

Welcome Baby

I've been offline for a while, but I've not stopped crafting! 

My latest project was a gift for our new Youth Pastor and his wife. They recently had a beautiful baby girl and have decorated her room with Dr. Seuss decor.

This is what I made for little baby Ginny...
