Treat Box - She's a Sassy Lady

Many thanks to Sheila at She's a Sassy Lady for her Gypsy Made Simple tutorial on her blog on how to create this treat box. I've had my Gypsy since May and am loving it, though I am no where near as talented as many of the gals/guys on the Circut Message Board. Thanks so much to all of you for sharing your creations and never hesitating in sharing your "how to" knowledge.

Anyway on to my version of the treat box. Thanks again Sheila at She's a Sassy Lady for your new series!



If you would like to make this super easy box, just go see Sheila at She's a Sassy Lady and she will walk you through!

Thanks for looking!

Happy John Deere Birthday



My nephew is turning 3. It is hard to believe ... it seems like yesterday that he was born! I love him so much, he is so much like his Dad!! Anyway, he is having a JOHN DEERE party at the bowling alley, it should be fun!

Above is the front (on the right) and back (on the left) of the card. I thought it he would think it was cool to be able to open it all the way up and have a tractor pulling a wagon.

Recipe:
Tractor - Everyday Paper Dolls - cut at 5.71" x 3.97" (cut 3 times, one in black, one in green, and one in yellow/gold)

Rectangle - Gypsy Wandersing - 5.64" x 3.28" (welded to tractor to create card)

Wagon - Paper Doll Dress Up - 6.87" x 9.50" (cut 3 times, one in black, one in green and one in yellow/gold)

Hay Bales - Old West - 2.79" x 1.47"

Dirt - torn brown cardstock

Thanks for looking!

Trick or Treat Treatbags

I know ... it is a little early to be working on treatbags, but when I have a minute to work on something I jump on it. I designed the toppers, on my Gypsy, using all 15 of the pumpkin faces from the Pumpkin Carving cartridge. I live in a very small town and get less than 15 trick or treaters, so this was not a huge undertaking.

Recipe:
Each topper is 8" x 4.75" (real dial size)
Treat Bags - 4" x 2" x 9.5"
