Golden Bulbs....

Hello & Happy Tuesday Everyone!
I have a reminder for ya and a project to share!

The reminder is for my GIVEAWAYS -
I have 2 Brand New Fiskar Stamp Sets that I'm giving
away to 2 of my AWESOME FOLLOWERS 
Here's the Link to that Post -- CLICK HERE!!!
It Ends tonight and the winners will be announced TOMORROW!!

And Now I have a lovely Project to share with you --
I went to a Holiday Card Kit Class back in
Early October, and the wonderful crafty gal in
Charge gave us 9 projects to make - everything was cut
for us, all we had to do was follow her original project -

I liked the projects, but needed to make them more
"ME" - You know more my style - They were all
very simple cards, but I knew they could use a 
little more this & that! :)

So, here's another one of her cards -- 



The Embossing folder on this one is sooo CUTE!
Of course I thought it was a little too plain for me
so I made this one instead --




I went ahead and added more COLOR to mine - You guys know
how much I like color! :) So I colored in all the Embossed Bulbs
with my Spectrum Noir Gold Glitter pen - 
Then I stamped 2 ornaments & added some
Trendy Twine Bows - I used my Clear wink of Stella pen on them and
added a clear gem in the center of the one ornament
Her sentiment was very plain to me so I Used my
Merry Christmas Die and die cut the words out in Gold Cardstock
3x's of course to make it POP! 
I also prefer Top Folding cards, and all of her cards were
side folds, so I changed that as well! 

I really like how mine turned out - More color just
makes me happy! :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Thankful for you ---

Hello & Happy Monday Everyone!
How was your weekend? Mine was
WONDERFUL! Got ALL my Christmas
Decor Up and my house looks so festive! EEK!
I still have a few Christmas Projects I want to make
though - so that'll happen this week with our
Thanksgiving break! 
I have to work today & tomorrow, so that'll
give me the rest of the week to create! YES!!!
I will go to work Wednesday for a little bit
and maybe Friday - I'm not on Salary, so I need
to make sure I get my weekly hours for that Paycheck! 💰

As you guys know I work at an Elementry school
and I'm the head Custodian - (I LOVE My Job)
but with any job there are headaches! Like HOW
Many hours I'm allowed each week - GRRR

Since I can't get everything done that they want
I've got a Wonderful group of 5th graders who are helping
 keep the school running - They take the trash throughout 
the school for me every day before they go home -
And because they are doing this, I thought I would
bring them a treat every month as a surprise (THANK YOU)

With this being the month of reflection - What we are
Thankful for - Of course waking up every day
is a blessing to me, then comes having my
AWESOME Family, and so many other things --
My list can go on for days - I want those wonderful
5th graders to know how much I appreciate them!

So I made them these SWEET Treats --



They had the Fall Candy on Sale right after Halloween, so it was a perfect time
to purchase a couple of bags of yummy goodness for the kids!




The toppers turned out so cute I think! :)
I used my Silhouette Machine & Program to create them -
The Clear Gusset Bags are from Jaded Blossom




The Handle Treat Bag topper is an SVG from 
Lori Whitlock #67840

I used Digital Papers from 
Miss Kate Cuttables #151646
Lori Whitlock #20765
Glitz Design #28610

Bear in Overalls with Pumpkin is a Print N Cut
from Stinkin Cute Paper #67419

The Font is Apple Cider Font #100403
The Banner is Carta Bella Banners #33147

The Kids LOVED these Treat bags and I'm thinking
for next month to give them a Pizza Party!
I'll talk to their Teacher and see what she thinks!

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a FABULOUS Day!!

Stars & Snowflakes...

Hello & Happy Friday Everyone!
YAY, it's the weekend and I get to start
putting up my Christmas stuff! My hubby
thinks I'm nuts (as he always does) but it
doesn't bother me to get a Jump Start on things!

I reminded him that I spent the entire year making 
Christmas cards and now look -- They are ALL
done and ready to be mailed off - Whose Crazy Now???
Hahahaha - Okay maybe I still am a little bit but 
in a GOOD kind of way! Am I right?

As you guys know I went to a Holiday card making class
back in early October - and I'm sharing the cards
the Hostess made for everyone to make and then
my version of it, since I like to change things up -

Here's another card --



This is a side flip open card and it's lovely
in white, silver, & blue - even the embossing is pretty

But I didn't like the cardstock - We all have our 
favorites - am I right? So, after looking at this
card, I decided to go a different direction with mine --




YUP! No Side fold for me!! I went a totally different route on this card -
You can see I used some of the elements of the card kit on my card

I started by choosing a light blue card base top fold design -
Then instead of using the silver glitter strip, I went with
White & Silver snowflake washi tape
I kept the scallop border because I really liked it - and then
I die cut a Stitched circle out of white cardstock and layered
the DP circle on top of that - I also used a different
Embossing folder on my card --

 I wanted to add a little more silver so 
I used a Word die and cut that
out in some Silver Cardstock (3x's) and then layered them
on top of each other, to make it stand out - then just added a
couple of clear adhesive gems to complete my card -
The inside of my card has another scallop border along
with a sentiment to tie the whole card together -

I really like how my card turned out - it's really pretty in person!


Thanks for stopping by!
Have a FABULOUS Weekend!!

Golden Tags --

Hello & Happy Thursday Everyone!
Can you believe we are 1/2 way thru November already??
Who's ready for some TURKEY??? I AM!! LOL

I think this weekend I'll be putting 
up the Christmas decor as well - I know we 
haven't had Thanksgiving yet - but I'm just
feeling the Christmas vibe --


Since I'm gonna start getting the Christmas vibe -
I thought I would share these lovely tags I made
for my Local Monthly Card Swap Group -
We already met up and we won't meet up again until
Jan. 2018 - But I made these "extra tags' for the ladies





I die cut White Tags out, then cut out the stitched layer tag in gold -

Then I pulled out my SumMore Fun Stamps -










I wanted to do some heat embossing - so the
pine border is with gold embossing and then the sentiment is
done with fine white embossing -
I added a lovely ribbon with the trim in gold 

The ladies in my card swap liked the extra surprise
and I was happy to make them! :)

We still have our Challenge going on over at

I need some help!!

Happy Tuesday Crafty friends!
This post is a simple one -

I've been trying for 3 days now to leave comments
on your blog posts - but for some really strange reason, I can't!

I don't know why or how to fix this -
It shows me logged into google - I can
make a New blog post -

But when I go to my reading list (which I always have)
and click on any of your blogs - it let's
me read your post but then when I want
to leave you a comment -

It shows "Select Profile" so of course
I select Google since I have an account - then
it flips the screen and then shows NO Comment!!
And I'm like WHAT? I just left one -

Also, when I go to my Blog page
Theresa's Crafty Creations -
in the corner, it has the Sign In at the top
so when I click on it - it does NOT have me sign in... 
it just takes me to my Blogger/Post page -
you know, where we can write our blog posts -

That's it... So I don't know what to do...
I'm getting really frustrated - especially
since I've been trying to leave comments
and it won't let me AND I'm not a
computer savvy person --

So, if anyone can help me figure this mess 
about PLEASE send me an email -

I've already cleared my cache & logging history
and anything else I could think of...

Just know, I've tried to leave you comments
but I can't!!! UGH!!

these were super quick & easy to make!

they would like to give them as a gift to a friend or teacher
they could - 😉
