“Bite Me” Bookmarks


I’ve got a booth at a local craft/Christmas fair on 12/3 and I’m scrambling to make a bunch of crafty ‘stuff’. 

NOTE:  These are for sale HERE!  :-)

This is something I’ve had in mind for a LONG time.  My oldest daughter is a big vampire/supernatural lover…books, movies, etc.  She loves it all.  I figure since Twilight is all the rage right now, I would put a little spin on that and a popular phrase that’s been in our family for YEARS!!!!  “Bite Me” is what we all say when someone is giving us a hard time.  The fangs work well with it, don’t ya think?  ;-)

So, here is my “Bite Me” bookmark.  I’ve got about 20 of these made and ready to roll. 

A big HUGE thanks to Kim at Cutters Creek for the quick shipping on the Cricut stamp refills.  I used the Cricut stamp material, Van Helsing font, Cricut machine and SCAL to cut my “Bite Me” stamp.   

It goes without saying, but I’m now one corner bookmark shy of 20 for my booth.  My daughter took one look at it and said “That’s Mine!!”.  he he!!

Until next time……….

I’m just not feeling it…


We are just over a month until Christmas and I’m just not feeling it.  I guess maybe because it was 80 degrees in Texas yesterday.  Today is a little better with a forecast high of 61.  Maybe I need to drop the AC down to about 40, turn on some Christmas music and lock myself in my scraproom.  IDK? 

So, here is my card.  IDK if I like it or not. 


BTW – that snowflake DP doesn’t look that antique/off-whitish in person.  I’m using my son’s camera, which I’ve found is pretty dang annoying!!  Mine is all charged up and ready to roll for a play at school tonight.

Hello Kitty b-day invitations


Hi friends!!

I had a customer email me, asking for 10 Hello Kitty birthday party invitations in neon pink.  When I saw this image, I knew exactly what I wanted to do!!  :-)


These cards measure 5.5x7.5 inches.  Hello Kitty was the most challenging part of this card, but I think they turned out pretty cute!  :-)

Here is the inside:


I computer generated the invitation information, printed it on the same neon papers I used on the front of the cards and layered with black for a finished look.

I have an extra one or two of these that I will be putting up for order-taking/sample purposes in my BluJay Store

Thanks for dropping by!!
