Frames is the theme for the Krazy Crafting Crew’s Blog Hop!


Welcome to our “All about Frames” Blog Hop Brought to you by our Krazy Crafting Crew.

We are an independent hop team that enjoys sharing our work with everyone and hope to inspire you with new ideas for you own creativity. We are a team who loves to do all different themes, such as cards, layouts, 3D projects and so much more. We do all the paper crafting from traditional to digital. Mostly traditional, every now and then there may be a little mixed media too!

Now for a little fun! Here is my project I have made for today’s hop, it is a collage frame filled with scrapbook papers and elements.  One of my famous things I am known for, even though I have slowed down on them.



It has been awhile since I made this frame, to be exact last July.  Waiting for the perfect time to show it!  The downfall is I can’t remember the paper stack I bought to do it with!  I just bought a 6×6 stack and some elements, I probably used a couple outside elements like the girl and the Polaroid frame, but other than that everything came coordinating!  I LOVE my frame!

Here are a few close-ups for you!

The Krazy Crafting Crew is at it again with Gift card holders.. perfect time of year!


Well, it’s that time of the year for gift gifting… and for many families that begins with the Thanksgiving holiday if you’re trying to fit in all the families on both sides and extended ones.. so we’ve put together a great hop today with plenty of ideas to make those gift cards look like a million bucks! I personally love gift cards… no hassle in returns, wrong sizes, etc. and with the ability to buy cards for even Visa and/or MasterCard, how could your gift even be considered to be re-gifted!

They will surely find something they want or need..

For hopping today, we have a gift for some lucky person. A 17.95 value Close To My Heart Merry and Bright Holiday Stamp set. You’ll have a great little set to make your Holiday cards, gift tags, or other decor.  A winner will be chosen by Nov. 6th so I can get this in the mail and off to the winner in plenty of time!.

 How to win? Comment on each blog and show our creative team some love please! If you’re not a follower, you might want to be… this group does a hop every first Sunday so you won’t want to miss what’s in store! Be sure to leave a way to contact you as well!

Now let’s get hopping! If you havent already, starting at Janet’s Creative World is where it all begins and those awesome stamps are up for grabs!

For today’s hop, I planned on something spectacular but as usual I end up with something simple and quick but classy I like to think.  I could have added a monogram or a scalloped circle with “A gift for you” but I am pretty simple and quick.  I can choose this to be vertical or horizontal.  Just slip off the ribbon and have a gift card waiting for any occasion.   Just pick your papers to your liking.



Thank you for stopping by my blog!  I have made many many many gift card holders, and would like to say they are in my project portfolio but I must have missed those when uploading, now my Scrap Diva Drive has crashed, sniff sniff… and will have to wait to see if she gets better after my husband tries to get what he can off of it.  (A 1 terabyte external drive, hurts!)

I love to inspire, and show off these little easy projects that are useful for anyone to make!  If you are interested in seeing more of my projects I would Love Love Love for you to subscribe by email and I will come straight to your inbox!  You can do so by adding your email on the side bar, or scrolling down to the bottom of the page where the “Let Me Come to your Inbox” section is.  Then just add you email!  I would be delighted to see you join!

As far as the menu: All I did was cut a strip of cream color cardstock, offsetting the card so the fold isn’t even.  Then put panels around with a ribbon and some pretty little button embellishments.  So easy to do!  You can make this gift card holder vertical or horizontal, when you place the gift card in just use double-sided tape.  A little red tape is perfect for this!  Maybe a personal message printed on the inside doing a test run on a normal paper, line it up with and run it through the printer again. BEFORE adding the panels!   Just a tip!

(Posted last night woke up this morning to give you even more inspiration!)

I made this cute little thing too and got to busy to post.. they are from the online Sillouettte Store, little money card wallets!  How manly is that?  I LOVE IT!



Now you’re off to my dear friend’s blog who nearly ALWAYS comes up with something AMAZING!

Welcome to the “Be Mine” Blog Hop


 As Valentine approaches many crafty things can be made. Ashley from The Blog Hop Princess decided to have this


To give you inspiration for the big day.  If you have stumbled upon the hop you can start with Ashley’s blog (link provided above) if you are already moving around and you came from  Mother and Daughter Designs, you are in the right spot. I know Ashley is giving out some goodies so  be sure to stop by there and check out her give away!

As for my project today, my kinder will need a mail box for her class valentine party.  Recently my friend and I got together and did a bunch of Valentine crafts, this was one of them!  She has all her Valentine cards all ready to go, the teacher provided pictures of the classmates in place of the names for easier passing them out,  so I did the the same in the To and From for all her valentine cards to give out!  Super cute!


I am sure she will  receive many Valentine cards that will say “Be Mine”  in her box.

I hope this has inspired you, to hop on along is your next stop.  I would love to hear what you have to say.

Have a great week!

 Since it is Easter Sunday I am going to make this quick and easy .  I have been adoring those easter baskets on TBBM, and figured out a way to do it with the nut cup on TBBM original.

 I just made the little strip, instead of using ribbon, using fiskar scissors. 

Here are two I made for my kids, getting them together was a tough one being home alone with them all day!

I decorated these cute lil’ things with DCWV Spring stacks.  I just love the way they turned out, hopefully I will get time to decorate them more before giving them out!

Whew!  That was a lot of typin! 😉  Well I have known about the hop for awhile now but kept contemplating on what my project was going to be.  I had an idea here, then there, then everywhere.  I took a stab at a couple of them and just couldn’t complete them because I didn’t think they were good enough.  Fully prepaired after being inspired by a trip to Micheals and my little idea booklet I finally got a light bulb to turn on up there.  Then as soon as I walked in the door guess what?  My GYPSY was home from Provo Craft  (for those who don’t know I had to have it replaced after only owning 3 wks and it has been gone a month and a half.)  Anyway, to boring of details for now but as you can see this only put me further behind since I just HAD to have my gypsy for this project, after registrations, downloads & updates here I am!  Woo hoo I made it!

 So what I have for you to today is a mini tag album.  Isn’t it just too cute?

{ :)click on the pic for a closer look :)}


It was fun to make in spite of this adventure but it got almost done.  I will be working on the rest of it with the kids decoration the pages and writing down the reason’s why we love daddy so much.  We all know it, we all say it even by habit some times but hearing why and talking about it is less common and it always warms your heart to hear someone talk about why they love you!

Sooo, ya wanna make one too?  Well, on my mad search today I finally found the perfect paper pack by K&Company.  I normally don’t like their patterns but this one I just fell in love with this and had to get the whole set.  30% off it was, and tomorrow it will probably be 40%!  lol…   Then I found some round tags to go with by the little brad section and a binder ring I supose you would call it.  I had some stuff called ..hmmm… not sure what it is called.  I got it at a yard sale it isn’t ribbon but it looks like it and it is more hard and likes to string out.  It is by “Little Black Dress Designs”  I guess it is called “Lip Smackin’ Ribbon Essemble” but it sure didn’t feel like ribbon and it wasn’t easy to work with. It was nice  for this project.  Then I used “Printed Press”  for the cut font and a free download fromDafont called, Conrad Veidt  for the words “soooo much”   Oh yes, I can’t forget the tags (and the tag on the tag) was all cut from Tags, bags, boxes and more.  The best cart ProvoCraft has created,  finally found it’s way home!  Then the little brads to go on top.  These were put together with chipboard for the front and back layer like a book.  I should have done the whole thing chipboard but it just didn’t happen that way.

Well, I hope you had a wonderful visit, I am looking forward to all the new subscribers and comments since i LOVE comments!  I apoligize for not having google friend connect, wordpress does not allow it or I am just not blog savy enough to figure it out.  If you are not already a subscriber, I sure would apreciate your subscription by email if you like my work, I would love to have you here!  I have also just created a facebook account under Lissa Marie, or Somanycrafts if you want to look me up!  Have a wonderful day and don’t forget  The Crafty Creation Spot  is your next spot!
