New Custom Cover I just made for a customer!! =)

As you all know by now, I make covers for all of the die cutting machines and other crafting machines, and have now for years. I just recently made this one for a dear customer of mine, and I think it came out way too cute!! My covers are very different form others, my covers are made with a thick inner quilted material, providing a very thick and protective dust cover for your machines. These covers are guarrenteed to be high quality, and if you want protection, these are the best of the best. Other covers are just a single layer of thin fabric, providing no protection at all. I am designing a new blog at the moment that will be specifically geared towards just the covers I make, allowing everyone to actually see the work that I do now, and have done over the past couple of years. Once I have it up and running, I will post a link for you all to check it out! If you'd like to purchase a custom made cover of your own, feel free to contact me! =)

Hi all! Sorry its been so long since I have been around, but there has been a lot going on here. Once January hit, the world just turned into one chaotic mess! The kids have been extremely sick, and have gone through the flu, stomach virus, viral infection, peumonia, strep, croup, breathing treatments, colonoscopy, finger pricks, nose pokes, blood samples.....its just been a disaster!! I have taken tons of photos of things just haven't organized them, nor had the time to post them. I hope all of you are doing well, adn I will be back up and running very soon!! =)

Bus Driver Gifts

Hi all! Sorry I've been in and out, and not around much, it's been crazy around here. I am finally posting my bus drivers gift for Christmas. It's not much or too fancy (as they are both men, so I can't get glitterfied), but it's special! They were very easy to make, and will last through the years for them to remember!! I purchased (at michaels) 2 wooden pre painted yellow stars, 2 wooden pre painted buses, some Quick Grip all purpose permanent adhesive, 30 gauge wire, and black ribbon. I glued the bus to the star with the Quick Grip all purpose permanent adhesive, pierced a hole on the top of the star with a small screw driver and hammer, on the back, I burned (with my walnut hollow hot marks tool) the year 2010 on the back of each star, then lastly, I wrapped the wire through the hole I made and around the tip of the star, leaving a loop at the top to string my ribbon through. Mission complete!! See very easy, very special, and takes less than 20 minutes!

Scrap-N-Share Group

Hi everyone! I hope everyone is doing well on this lovely Saturday! I am, in fact, I am doing so well because my son and I are heading, by train, to Orlando Florida to visit good ole Mickey Mouse! So I am super double duper excited today. This will be our first train ride!

Anyways, on to the topic at hand. I have joined a few yahoo groups, and I'm never one to share or comment much there, but I love reading others posts, learning new tricks from these groups, and what I love most of all, is the sharing of creations that others have accomplished! Now some groups have their rules, and your not allowed to post your blogs, creations, and you have to stay strictly to the topic, and I was reading from one of my groups only to find that there was an issue with people posting their creations, blogs, and sharing files, etc. and it dawned on me that if these wonderful people can't share their creations, then where can we get our inspiration? What good is arts and crafts if you can't share them with others? So I started a group, and its called Scrap-N-Share, and its exactly for those who want to share their creations, ideas, files, blogs, etc.! If it has to do with crafts, its all good! And it could be any crafts, any art, anything creative! Scrap-N-Share is a place to share ideas, get ideas, learn, help others, and have all around the board fun with all types of arts and crafts! So if you feel like this would be something you would be interested in joining, feel free to head on over and join! Just remeber, this is a place to share creations, blogs, files, ideas, and to have just have all out fun! No frowns allowed!! We look forward to seeing you there!!

Playing With My eCraft!!

Hi All!! Sorry I haven't been around for awhile, as all of you know by now, the eCraft has finally come out, and is available here at Cre-8-tive Instincts! I have been palying with mine now for a few weeks, just trying to get the hang of it, considering that it is a totally different machine than we are used to, as it uses no cutting mat. Craftwell is still trying to work out a few of the kinks in the software, but all in all, once you get passed the scary part of a new machine, its actually a pretty fun machine, with a lot to offer! Here are a few cuts I have just recently made through testing differnt papers and cardstocks! As you can see, this machine also draws, and then cuts your design out around the drawing! I love it! (Also uses colored pens, so your not just limited to black)

I have also cut fabric with this machine, and have totally mastered that part!! I love how perfectly it cuts the fabric, its awesome!! I will be uploading a video this coming week, maybe Sunday, but if not, definitely Monday! I also want to thank all of those who have helped me work through the kinks and issues I was facing, especially  a wonderful customer, who I now call a friend, Phyllis, who has walked me through some things, by sharing emails and photos of "how to do's" with me!! Thank you so much, I wouldn't have figured it out any time soon without your help, and for that, I am truly thankful!!!
