#refinishedhutch We recently bought a house and so I've been knee deep in refurbishing furniture... my mom gave me the dresser (the bottom half), I found the hutch/shelf part at a thrift shop (the D.I.). Anyway, I took off the back of the hutch and covered it with chevron fabric and nailed it back on. Then we screwed the the two pieces together. I spray painted the handles with a silver metallic paint. Voila!

#Burlapwreathe This burlap & linen rag wreathe is super easy to make! 1. buy a wire wreathe from a craft store, burlap (approx 1 yard) & linen (approx 1 yard) - I used left over supplies 2. Cut 1"x9" strips out of the fabrics - length isn't important as long as it's not less than 6" you'll be ok :) 3. Tie the strips onto the wreath alternating the types of fabrics - voila done! I added a ribbon for embellishment but I think a cute "harvest" sign or a pumpkin would be darling too!

Don't you just love that tag?! We R Memory Keepers makes the cutest embossed die cut tags - love them all!

I love using We R Memory Keepers tools for crafting - they're all so sturdy and cheap!

Maybe my favorite card that I made this year... well I like the Joy one too...

I love the embossed die cut tags from We R Memory Keepers!

We R Memory Keeper's Brad Setter & Piercing tool is amazing!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this paper... but it was kinda hard to do a card out of... the circle is popped out and decorated with mini glitter brads (I used We R Memory Keeper's Brad Setter - the most amazing little tool ever!)

A mix of White Christmas & Peppermint Twist Collections from We R Memory Keepers

Christmas cards are too fun to make to just stop at 5...

I believe I love cardmaking...

We R Memory Keepers made my Christmas cards super easy this year - their Peppermint Twist collection was so easy to work with!

Using a doilie from the We R Memory Keeper's Tres Elegant collection & embellishments from their Peppermint Twist collection came together nicely...

Pleated circles are a huge hit, so using that concept & my Martha Stewart score bored I attempted a Christmas tree... um... well... it's ok I guess LOL!

1 of the million cards I made this year... of course I used all We R Memory Keepers stuff: Peppermint Twist is the collection, corner chomper & the twist trimmer helped... I LOVE their stuff!

We R Memory Keepers White Christmas collection last year is still super cute... I love this santa!

My stepmother's father passed away a couple of months ago and for her birthday last weekend I made her a remembrance box to store nick nacks that remind her of him. I started it for her by putting a few items that represent my favorite memories of him. It was a fun project to make because I really enjoyed thinking of her and him the whole time. (Supplies used: We R Memory Keepers Twist Trimmer - scallop, straight & score blades; We R Memory Keepers Tres Elegant collection: Scrapbook pad, chipboard words, cameos, pearl brads, self-adhesive pears and textured cardstock pad; ribbon, Crop-a-dile & 2 eyelets; EK Success Scallop Circle punch, foam adhesive, Glue Arts tape runner and a hot glue gun)

Double Banner: A lady at my church asked me to make her a double sided banner that she could use for Halloween and Christmas - I'm not thrilled with the Halloween side, I think it would have looked better with different color letters. Anyway, I used We R Memory Keepers Spookville and Peppermint Twist papers, baker's twine and Twist Trimmer. I also used an EK Success Scallop circle punch.

Pumpkin Centerpiece (up close): Super quick and simple to make! (Those are my favorite projects!) Simply pick out 2 pieces of paper from the We R Memory Keepers Heebie Jeebies Scrapbook Pad (their scrapbook pads are the best value in the industry, in my opinion), and using We R's Twist Trimmer (Pinking blade) cut two 3" strips and glue the together to make 1 long strip. Then cut two 2" strips and glue those together. Glue the thinner strip on top, then using a hot glue gun glue on to your pumpkin. Then using ribbon, tie a bow around the center and use a Heebie Jeebies Die-cut tag for your Halloween greeting. Wasn't that easy? (PS. The pumpkin is sitting on a piece of Heebie Jeebies Die-cut paper and a cake stand; embellished with fake cobwebs and spiders).

Halloween Gift Box Set: using a score board, and We R Memory Keepers Spookville and Heebie Jeebies paper I made this boxes to play around with my new scoreboard over the weekend. They were SUPER easy to make, and I wouldn't have even needed the scoreboard - you could use We R's Twist Trimmer with the score blade and just score at the proper dimensions.

Heebie Jeebies Table Center Piece Set: You can learn how to make this Halloween decor at

Halloween door hanger: I made this using some of the leftovers from my Halloween Wreath. I thought it would be funny to hang on the bathroom door or the kitchen... because you never know what you're going to get when you enter either of those rooms at our house! Depends on who's been there before you ;)... gasp! What were you thinking? I was talking about the dirty dishes and the... towels on the floor ;-) Enjoy!

Spooky Wreath: Inspired by Pink By Design, I made this wreath over the weekend with my sister-in-laws. It's fairly simple, I just don't recommend making 5 at one time! Supplies Used: - We R Memory Keepers Spookville & Heebie Jeebies Scrapbook Pads - We R Memory Keepers Heebie Jeebies Textured Cardstock Pad - We R Memory Keepers Circle Cutter (to cut out the cardboard), Art Knife, Small Precision Tip Scissors, Brad Setter & Piercing Tool, Twist Trimmer (LOVE this tool) and Magnetic Cutting Mat (their mat is self-healing & BIG, I LOVE it!) - Martha Stewart's Scoreboard (We R needs to make one because this one's got issues) - Tulle, ribbon and embellishments (all of the cute centers came from the Spookville & Heebie Jeebies collections) Instructions: 1. Cut out a 12" circle from cardboard, and a 7" circle out of the center (use the center for another wreath - pics coming soon) 2. Pick out your paper (I used 20 different sheets to make the different circles) 3. Score the paper using your score board. (I made 7 papers at 1/8", 180 1/4" and 7 @ 1/2") 4. Cut the papers into strips (the large circles will need 1 1/2 strips - I cut 10 at 1" strips, 5 @ 1 1/2" strips, and 5 at 2" strips) 5. Now fold the strips accordion style 6. Tape the ends together (pattern side facing out) 7. Then gather together into a cone shape and push down and there's the pleated circle! 8. Make 20 1-2" circles out of your scrap paper (don't have to be perfect, you can use a punch) 9. Using a hot glue gun, glue the pleated circle to the little scrap circle so that the circle will stay put! (this will take a little practice, so be patient) 10. Arrange all of your pleated circles on your cardboard wreath backing & choose your center embellishments. I used push pins to hold them in place while I figured out the pattern I wanted to create. Then hot glue it all down. 11. Using tulle hang the wreath on your door & enjoy!
