My New Friends

Meet my new friend Riley Moose! Isn't he cute? I am a moose fan and I especially love him because he he does lots of fun things. He will be featured in our family Christmas cards this year. The card below is inspired by a card on Splitcoast Stampers made by a sweet lady that goes by "Just Because".  She told me how she paper pieced Riley's comfy chair so I had to give it a whirl. What a fun technique! I will be doing more of this.

This is his girlfriend Sophie Moose enjoying a bubble bath. I colored both of them with my spankin new Copic markers and used Cinnamon Stickles for their antlers. CTMH Liquid Glass makes her bubbles look real.  I stamped "It's a Girl Thing" inside. I think this would make a nice Girlfriend card. Well, I had better get to bed. Two more days of work before I head to the Scrapbooking Factory to work on my Christmas cards. Gosh, I hope they turn out nice.

Snapware Cricut Cartridge Case

I made this carrier for my Cricut carts. I saw a company selling them at SDV this summer and I thought "I can make that!" Well, I did and it was quite a bit cheaper than the ones she was selling. I got the Snapware containers from The Container Store. They sell one large and one small and call it a ribbon organizer or something like that. I bought another set of the small omes 50% off at Hobby Lobby. I have the dimensions of the plastic mesh somewhere. If you are interested, let me know & I will find them and send them to you. The cartridge bin holds 40 carts and the large bin holds 20 books and overlays**. I put my cricut tools in the third bin.
I made one of these for Cheryl as well. I think she likes it!

**I went through my books and tore out all the pages that are not in English. It makes it so much easier when I am thumbing through them.
