Daddy Diaper Tool Belt

A special tool belt for a new daddy is just the thing to bring a smile to his face or laughter to a baby shower. I have done special orders with a theme in mind. Frogs seem to be the most requested. Graphics are Daddy Dearest by Carolee Jones from

Bus Driver Appreciation

This card for bus driver appreciation was inspired by Mary Jo Albright tutorial. It is flat for 1/4 card envelope and stand up when you pull the tab. Graphics are by Colleen Parry "Teacher's Helpers" from
The bus is mounted with a pop dot. I did add a pull ribbon, but camera battery fizzled out.

Bag in a Box

 I love the bags made by Andrea but I could not wait to make my own version. Although the lighting was not the best for glitter foil paper, I couldn't wait to make this santa bag in a box. The belt is an 11" x 3/4" light weight paper threaded through a slotted silver brad. I hot glued on the buttons so I did not have to cut off the backs.
This version is thanks to Laurie Furnell. I adapted her snowman wrapper graphic into a wrap for my bag in a box. Snow glitter was added by brushing on clear glue. Curly yarn for the scarf and top knot. I have inclued the PDF and GSD files; and my alterations for the tab are also inclued.

Birthday Purse

Little girls love purses. This birthday card is just the thing. Made with Party Animals by Leere' Aldrich found at 

Matching note pad is 3"x3".  Note pad is held in place inside the purse with a repositionable glue dot.

I used the clutch purse template and added a flap. Punch two holds where the flap and the back panel meet. Cut ribbon to desired length, poke end through hold and tie knot in the end.

Boo Your Neighbor

This door hanger is just right for a neighborhood knock and run. The instructions are given in the poem. Place a plate of goodies on your neighbor's door step, place the door hang on the knob, ring the door bell, and run. It is fun to share this with friends and family. I used the the cute ghost graphic in Witchie Poo and Boo by Laurie Furnell found at .  Here is the poem.

You've Been Boo-d!

Late last night, we left you a treat.
The tradition is fun, one we hope you'll repeat.

Take the ghost and pin it on your door, 
to let others know, you need boo-d no more.

Now it's your duty to pass on the surprise,
to two more families, we must advise.

Gather some treats and deliver them soon,
within two nights, under the light of the moon.

Include a ghost with each package you give,
along with this poem for the tradition to live.

Purse Bag

This cute bag is perfect for all occasions. Seen here for a birthday, fall thank you, and Christmas. The Christmas purse was cute twice, then trim the inside layer by an 1/8" on the bottom and side. The templates will be posted on Monday. I'm still trying to perfect a couple of things.
