I love this card made by my friend Katie from Crafting with Katie. Its made using a faux embossing technique that really looks real.

Tissue Box Cover with Tombow’s New Xtreme Adhesive

I was thrilled when Kasey from Tombow contacted me to try out their new Xtreme adhesive. What better test than a tissue box cover made out of paper?


Tombow’s Xtreme Adhesive is the latest Tombow product to hit the market and is 5 X’s stronger than their standard tape runner. It works on a variety of hard-to-glue surfaces such as cardstock, cork, wood, fabric, glass, plastic and rubber. This cover is made using Jamie Cripps 3D Flower Rectangle Tissue Box (#64932) that I purchased from the Silhouette on-line store.


I used a glue pen on the flower and Xtreme Adhesive on the box. My tissue box cover will get plenty of use and I expect the Tombow Xtreme Adhesive will keep everything secure. What a great test for their new product!

For more information on this product, please watch the video below.



Have a great day!!

Welcome to Make it in Minutes Monday featuring quick and easy cards or projects that take minutes to make, but look like you spent hours.


This sucker holder is made using Jamie Cripps 3D Skeleton Owl Sucker holder (#65996) that I purchased from the Silhouette on-line store. You could use this for a party favor or for a fun decoration. I added a bow to my Tootsie Pop and was done!

Just Got Back From Yellowstone

I took a short break from blogging as my husband Bill and I took a Labor Day weekend trip to Yellowstone National Park. I'd like to share some photos my husband Bill took while on the trip.

The weather was not great for photos as it rained a lot during the first two days. Bill got up early the last day and these are his best ones.


The clouds made beautiful patterns and colors just before sunrise over the Yellowstone River near Fishing Bridge.


After sunrise, a golden glow filled the landscape as the fog lifted.


The Lower Falls of the Yellowstone River are always an amazing sight. They drop 308 ft.


The elk are in full rut right now and showing off for the females.

I hope you enjoyed his photos.
