Monogram Gift Bag

Tommorrow is the day......for Melissa's going away event at my job. I decorated this gift bag using SCAL and the Regal Font which is a free font, but I needed it split in half so I purchased the file from Denise Hill ( I will add a bow and a few embellishments later. TFL.

Altered Items

After making "candy dishes" for my co-worker and my DD, I decided to make one for my self. I have been spending a lot of time on Pinterest lately and one of the pictures that I pinned to my board was one of a cookie sheet repurposed as a message board. That seemed like a really cool idea that I had to try. I used Cricut Carts: Sophie and Flower shop and Cricut Imagine Vintage papers for the printed papers. I used Quickkutz, Cheryl Lynn Design and Sizzix dies also. I love the way it came out. TFL.

Final "Going Away" Items

This should conclude all of the decor that I'm making for my coworker's going away event at my job. I mostly used Cricut Carts like Flower Shoppe, Birthday Bash, Art Philosophy and Recess. I did use a few punches and metal dies. I will string the banner closer to the date. TFL.

More Baby Items

I decided to make more items for my Beautician's Grandson. The image on the bib is from an online coloring page which was easily traced in SCAL. The font is Walt Disney. I found the tote at Wally World for $4.00 and decided to use it as a gift box for the items that I bought for him. So he has a a couple of outfits, soft shoes, regular & personalized bibs and a baby wipe case in the tote. The tote can also be use to store his clothing or toys or whatever his mommy wants to put in it. The train is an SVG from My Vinyl Designer. TFL.


My beautician's daughter just give birth to a baby boy earlier this week and I decided to personalize a few things for him. I used Cricut Boys Will Be Boys cart for the truck and CTMH Art Philosophy cart for his name. TFL.

Melissa's Going Away Creations

One of my co-workers is transferring to California and we are planning a going away event for her at my job. I'm in charge of doing the decorations. I have until the 26th of this month to have everything completed. I used an SVG for the shoes (Smartbuy Girl) and for the block letters (SVG Cuts). I used Cricut Forever Young and Flower Shoppe carts and numerous dies. TFL.

Cute Candy Dishes

I was on a MB somewhere when I saw a picture that someonehas posted of a candy dish made from a pot. I knew I had to try this. It was pretty simple to do just paint the pot and it's saucer then glue the items together with E6000 glue. I made two one for my DD and another for a co-worker who is will be transferring to another state and I'm in charge of doing the decorations for her going away party. I think the candy dish will serve as a decoration with candy and a cute parting gift for her. TFL.
