DIY tool caddy and cord holder for my Brother Scan N Cut!

Hi all! I'm so excited to share this simple DIY project with you! I was having a hard time keeping track of my stylus and remembered something I had made a while back for my sewing machine to hold my seam ripper and small scissors. The one pictured here is Sooo much better than that original holder I made years ago.

All I did was score some chipboard (half of an old Pop-tart box) and cover it with duct tape. It was super simple... In the video below I show how I did it and How I am wrangling the USB cords I use to transfer data between the device and my computer.

In other exciting news.... I got a new phone!!!

It is an LG fiesta I use it through Straight Talk.

     It is so nice to have a phone that works smoothly! The camera is AMAzing!!! I used it to record this straight from the Youtube app. I also did all my editing with the Youtube editor. It was OK but I am so used to my VSCD free Video editor that it took me a few mins to figure out a few things. I do need to see if I can get the phone to stop trying to focus all the time though.

Anyhow....   Have a great day! Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to find something crafty to do!

Watercolor Daisy cards with Rubbernecker stamps

Hi all... I am trying really hard this year to buckle down and use the tings I purchased at the Stamp and Scrapbook expo. I still have some things I purchased from my first trip last year that I have not used! Ahhh.... what the heck! So... trying to be better at that! You may not see quite so many Haul videos either as I am working on using what I have.

There are links to some of the basic supplies I used in the sidebar >  As an FYI they are affiliate links

Here is a link to the Daisy stamp I used

Here is the video... I hope you enjoy!

These stamps really are so much fun and make beautiful cards. I personally tend to lean toward the clean and simple style so they are great for me.

Have a great day!

How I handle unmounted rubber stamps

Hi all! I love being able to create and craft on a budget. One way is when stamp companies offer bare rubber stamps. Meaning they have no foam backing and are not on a wood block. Below is my video on how I deal with unmounted (bare rubber) stamps.  Enjoy!
