Thankful For You Crow From Miss Kate Cuttables

Hello Everyone,

I sure hope everyone is doing well. I have been EXTREMELY busy with school (LOTS of changes and student needs this year), which is why I am having a tough time getting myself to the craft room to create on a regular basis. I have made a few projects (Create a Critter baby shower ensemble and a couple cupcake birthday cards) during the past month and I went to a class at My Favorite Things, but didn't take pictures to post. Also, my hubby got me new LED lights for my photo box (I broke one of my old lights during Hurricane Irma) and I haven't figured out how to adjust the settings on my camera YET (that is why my photo coloring is a bit off).

We have a week off at Thanksgiving and two weeks off for Winter Break; therefore, I am being optimsitic that I will find time to create then. My daughter will be home from college too, so I may even have a crafting buddy. That would make me happy!

Here is my Design Team project...
Today is my day to share at Miss Kate Cuttables.


I used the following sketch from Die Cuttin' Divas.

I used the crow behind pumpkin file by Miss Kate Cuttables. The stamped sentiment is by Scrappy Moms Stamps.

Mouse Pumpkin at Miss Kate Cuttables

Hello Miss Kate Cuttables Fans,

Hard to believe it is already October. The end of first quarter ends at school next Friday (the 13th). Although Hurricane Irma caused us to miss 6 days of school, we are still plugging away to get all the material covered. I have been extremely busy with a diverse group of students and never seem to have enough time in the day to do everything I want to do. My principal just asked to me to consider mentoring a new teacher (possibly at another school), so time will need to be carefully scheduled to accomplish everything.

Today is my day to share at Miss Kate Cuttables.  

Here is my Design Team project...
I told my husband that I am looking forward to sending my daughter a care package this month before Halloween. I claimed one of his boxes and put it on the side, so I can start gathering some goodies when I go to the store this weekend. I am going to include this card since she is a BIG Disney fan. I think she will like the pumpkin with mouse ears.

I used the Mouse Pumpkin file by Miss Kate Cuttables.

I used the following sketch from Die Cuttin' Divas.

The stamped sentiment is by Scrappy Moms Stamps.

School is Cool at Miss Kate Cuttables

Hello Everyone,

I am preparing this post ahead of time just in case the power goes out with Hurricane Irma. As of right now, my daughter, my dog, and I are doing well. It is raining and getting windy, but we are safe with electricity. Hopefully everything will continue to be good. 

The new challenge at Miss Kate Cuttables starts tonight, and remember there is a free file every week! Hopefully you will be able to join us during the next two weeks with your own creation.

This Month's Challenge...
~ Back to School~

Here is my Design Team project...
I had another student send me a message on our hurricane day off that he was using the Achieve3000 computer program and he was Florida and Worldwide Leader.  I am so excited that I have students that care about their learning. Our school district issued a no homework policy for all elementary students this year, so any work the students do at home has to be optional or incomplete work they didn't finish in class. Makes me happy that some are going above and beyond! Those students will definitely make great gains. 

The happy book file is by Miss Kate Cuttables. The stamped sentiment is by Pink by Design and the Lori Whitlock box was cut with my Cameo.
Hope you will join us at Miss Kate Cuttables for the "Back to School" challenge. The other design team members are ready to support students, teachers, paraprofessionals, and even the bus drivers this school year. Be sure to check out ALL the variety!

Bushels of Apples

Hello Crafty Friends,

I am sitting in my craft room while the storm is beating down upon us, but I am staying busy while the power is still on. I was doing laundry and dishes earlier so nothing would be sitting around in case we don't have water later. The news just said millions of people in the south are without electricity and we still have many hours before it is close to north central Florida. I am not worried about flooding, just trees/branches falling since we have so many big and beautiful old trees. Our power lines are above ground in our neighborhood, so the risk is higher. I will keep you posted as long as I can! Stay safe my fellow Floridian crafty friends! 

I decided to track down some current challenges and came up with a card perfect for the upcoming season. Fall is my favorite season not just because it's my birthday, but the weather cools off.

I used the following sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.

The apple basket is from Too Cute by Jessica (she is going out of business, so her files are really cheap if you need any). The stamped sentiment is by Bug Bites. All the stitched dies are by My Favorite Things.

Other Challenges:

Thanks for stopping by and checking in on me! I appreciate all your thoughts during this time. 
Take Care,
Georgiana

Way to Go!

Hello Crafty Friends,

As Hurricane Irma gets closer to the Florida penisula and our school district is closed for a long weeknd so the shelters can open, I am home hoping for the best. I have been watching the news every day this week and paying very close attention to the predicted paths since there is a good chance the storm could pass right over us as a Category 3 or 4. My husband has been scheduled to work at one of the shelters, so we can only hope nothing major happens.

Onto a more upbeat topic...it is my day to share at Miss Kate Cuttables

 Here is my Design Team project...
My class started using a computer program by Achieve3000. I have a few students that are already excelling and earning LOTS of points. Yesterday one of my students earned "World Leader" and the day before that he was "Florida Leader", so I made him a surprise postcard.

I think this smiling tablet by Miss Kate Cuttables will be a perfect reward. It was SUPER easy to make, so I may create some more since I am going to be home for a few days.

The stamped sentiment is a combination of two clear acrylic stamps. The top one is Scripty Sayings by Lawn Fawn and the bottom one is by Scrappy Moms Stamps.

Mermaid Birthday Wishes at Paper Play Sketches

Happy Wednesday,
We have an early release today, which means students get out of school two hours early. They leave early so we can have professional development. Today our focus is going to be on Math and Science. We have all new district staff, new curriculum maps, new methods...so there has been a lot of change to adjust to. It sure is taking a toll on everyone.

Today is also Paper Play Sketches day. I have not been able to participate too much lately and Janis has been very understanding. Thanks Janis!

This Week's Challenge...

Here is my Design Team project...
Another birthday card for a cute little girl. 

I cut this darling mermaid on my Cameo. 

I added some clear Wink of Stella to her tail and bow. The blue gems are by Eyelet Outlet and Brads
Now, I hope you will  join us this week for the Paper Play Sketches challenge. Be sure to visit the other Design Team members to see how they used the sketch.

New Paper Die Cuts at Miss Kate Cuttables

Hello Everyone,

Thank for stopping by today. This is a special post for Miss Kate Cuttables because the Design Team has been asked to use these new paper die cuts. They are FABULOUS! You get a pack of various diecuts ~ all by theme. No need to print or cut yourself. How easy it that. The most difficult part is choosing which ones you want.

I chose the Baby Girl Paper Die Cuts. You can make a bunch of cards and/or layouts with this one package. I have a couple more laying on my desk ready to be adhered together. I wanted to get these done because we have a baby shower at school on Thursday for a 3rd grade teacher.

I had a few of these MFT die cuts in pile on my desk, so it was meant to be. I just added the stamped sentiment from my stash.

Another pink one! I used foam dots to add dimension to all the pieces.

Hope you will check out all the paper die cuts at Miss Kate Cuttables. They are perfect when you need a last minute card, you are in a hurry, or you want to make a bunch.

Stay Creative,
Georgiana

Masculine Birthday Greetings

Happy Saturday!
Although school just started two weeks ago, I am glad it is the weekend. I need to get quite a few things accomplished and need the long days to plan some productive lessons for the many low students I have this year. Also, my son's brithday was yesterday and I am looking forward to having a birthday meal with him (his choice is Red Robin so far ~ Yum!).

Here is my Design Team project (actually two)...
I was asked to make a hunting/camo card and a fishing card by another co-worker.  


I used the MKC Gone Fishing Title and Fishing Pole file for the second card.

Be sure to stop by Miss Kate Cuttables for your freebie...one every week.

Hope you have a fabulous weekend,

Birthday Celebration at Die Cuttin' Divas

I hope  everyone is doing well. LOTS going on here! My daughter moved back to the college dorm this past weekend, went on a field trip yesterday with my class, took the dog to the vet since her surgical spot looked terrible, and we made reservations for summer vacation next year (my son and his girlfriend are going with us this time). PHEW! And it is only Tuesday.

Today brings a new challenge at Die Cuttin' Diva.

This Week's Challenge...
~ Birthday Celebration ~

Here is my Design Team project...
A co-worker asked me to make a birthday card for her 1 year old grand-daughter.

The flying unicorn file is by Miss Kate Cuttables. The scalloped frame and stitched rectangle mats are by My Favorite Things. The scalloped circle is by My Craft Spot.

Back to School at Die Cuttin' Divas

 Hello Crafty Friends,

Welcome back to Carson's Creations! I am glad you are stopping by to see what I have been creating this week. I am trying to balance school, home, and crafting again and before long I will have a nice routine. Until then...I have to have patience!

Today brings a new challenge at Die Cuttin' Diva.

This Week's Challenge...
~ Back to School ~

Here is my Design Team project...
I think a nerdy apple is very appropriate for the first week of school. I got my glasses back in January and have to wear them all the time. I don't mind though becuase I think it makes the teacher look even smarter. I have a couple students that need to wear glasses and don't like to, so it is my way of encouraging them to keep them on.

The nerdy apple is by SVG Cutting Files ~ Kawaii Nerdy School.

The stamped sentiment is by Jaded Blossom ~ School Rules set.

Thank You for Summer Fun at Miss Kate Cuttables

It has been a SUPER busy two weeks getting ready for back to school, which is why I haven't been around much. The first three days have been great, but with so many changes in our district this year I have had to postpone my crafting. Once a school routine is established and additional information is released so I can plan a couple weeks ahead, then I will be able to get back to a regular crafting schedule.

The new challenge at Miss Kate Cuttables starts tonight, and remember there is a free file every day! Hopefully you will be able to join us during the next two weeks with your own creation.

This Month's Challenge...
~ Summer Fun ~

Here is my Design Team project...
Although summer free-time is quickly coming to an end, I was still thinking about the hot, sunny weather. I decided to make thank you cards for my parents that sent in wish list items. I always like to show them appreciation and I thought this sun would put a smile on their face.


I created the background using a MFT cloud stencil and Salty Ocean distress ink. The happy sun is a Miss Kate Cuttables files, which was easy to cut on my Cameo. The stamped sentiment is by Jaded Blossom ~ Kind Thanks set.

I made a few is two different directions since I have so many wonderful parents.
Hope you will join us at Miss Kate Cuttables for the "Summer Fun" challenge. The other design team members sure do enjoy the summer time too! Be sure to check out ALL the variety!

Term Over at Eyelet Outlet and Brads

Hello Everyone,

I just got back yesterday from a week long cruise in the Caribbean. What a fabulous way to end summer break before heading back to school on Thursday. We went to Haiti, Jamaica, and Mexico and did an excursion at each port. Fun! Fun! Fun! We are already talking about next year's cruise since it will be our 25th anniversary. My first choice is a Scandinavian trip with stops in Denmark, Finland, Norway, Amsterdam, and/or Russia. We need to research ports and flights before making any final decisions. Wherever we decide, it will definitely be memorable. 

Today is the last day of my Eyelet Outlet and Brads term. Six months has flown by and it was a pleasure showcasing so many different products. I know I will continue to use a variety of the products and hope you will add some to your collection.

I used a few My Favorite Things products but really want to focus on the vellum and pink gems. Since adhesive will typcially show through vellum I applied small dots of glue behind the gems. Now you can't see any residue and the vellum is securely adhered.

I added Wink of Stella clear glitter to the MFT sheep.

Eyelet Outlet and Brads has a wide variety of products! Why not check them out today.

Under the Sea at Die Cuttin' Divas

Hello Crafty Friends,

Welcome back to Carson's Creations! I am glad you are stopping by to see what I have been creating. Today brings a new challenge at Die Cuttin' Diva.

This Week's Challenge...
~ Under the Sea ~

Here is my Design Team project...
I created two snack boxes for any day trip...perhaps to the aquarium. Me, I love Sea World and the best part is educators can get a free teacher pass. Guess what I forgot when I was making this project? The goldfish crackers. I went to the grocery store, but forgot to write them on this list. Have you ever done that? 

I cut the Silhouette boxes by Sweet Afton with my Cameo. The original came with the goldfish cut-out, but I changed the other one. I used a MKC dolphin file and only needed one layer. I added  a piece of clear transparency film so the crackers won't fall out. The mini tag is by My Craft Spot and the Fish On stamped sentiment is by Jaded Blossom.
I hope you will join us at Die Cuttin' Divas this week for our "Under the Seachallenge. Be sure to check out the other design team projects.

I Can't Thank You Enough at Eyelet Outlet and Brads

Happy Friday Everyone!
Today is my second to last day to post at Eyelet Outlet and Brads since my term will be complete at the end of July and I am showcasing a few different products from the shop.

Here is my Design Team project...
I am still trying to add some thank you cards to my stash. When I go back to school in two weeks I want to be able to give a card to the parents that send in items from the class wish list. Due to budget cuts, our class supply orders were cancelled and I am going to be appreciative of anything that I can get for the students. 

I used the following sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.

I layered the light purple flowers and added a round daisy brad in the center. Both the flowers and brads come in a variety of colors. The flower was adhered with a 1/2" Glue Dot.

The background was created using MFT periwinkle ink and a splatter stamp from the Distressed Patterns set. The stamped sentiment is by My Favorite Things ~ Thank so Very Much set and the heart enamel dots are from Eyelet Outlet and Brads.

I used the following products from Eyelet Outlet and Brads shop.

Eyelet Outlet and Brads has a wide variety of products! Why not check them out today.
