Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. We certainly did !!! Lucas got a train set and we played "Choo Choo" all day. Christmas is really for kids, even big kids. LOL

Here are just a couple of pictures of Kelly, Nick and Lucas. We had to set the train up in the living room because we had no room in the family room with the Christmas tree and our presents.

Here is wishing everyone a Happy New Year.

Senior Golfer

Usually after doing a swap I am left with small pieces of cardstock that I really don't know what to do with . So today I decided to make a card with an image that I got when I entered an image swap and use up some of the cardstock from the Recipe Divider swap that I posted yesterday. I tried to color coordinate by coloring the image with copic markers.

Birthday Bucket

I wanted to change pace and show you a bucket I made for my nephew, Jeff, for his birthday. I just took a plain tin bucket (found at Michael's) and wrapped it with scrapbook paper. Then added a styrofoam ball and filled it with 39 suckers. The wording is cut from Plantin Schoolbook and the "Happy Birthday" is from Celebrations cartridges. The candle punch around the bottom is a Martha Stewart punch. Then I went wild with the ribbon. LOL

Hello All.....

Hello All ----

I am apparently hooked on recipe cards. LOL However, the new one I joined is for recipe card dividers. I choose to do "Side Dishes" and this is my final design. I hope everyone in the swap likes it. I still have to finish the tabs and decide on what to do for the back of the page, but the basic layout is below.

Good Morning

Good Morning --Today is the day we are going down to Mainstreet in St. Charles, MO. They have the most wonderful shops filled with Christmas spirit. I need to find a special present for a wonderful person and it will be the place to find it. I must say that I am loving the copics. Here is a Birthday card which was colored with copics. The digi stamp is from Sew My Cards.

Recipe Layouts

Hello - This morning I wanted to show a recipe layout that I did for a cookie swap on the cricut mb. The tree was cut from JOTS, the snowman was a stamped image colored with prisma pencils using gamsol technique. For the snowflakes I used a Martha Stewart round punch and regular snowflake punch. The Warm Wishes was another stamp and I used nestibilites around the saying. I hope you like it.

Good Morning

Good Morning - I want to start by saying how easy this project is to do. This is a practical gift for any season. I made some for Christmas gifts, but this one is for a challenge over at Sew My Cards. This is a magnetic refrigerator clipboard used for notes.

Material Needed:

1. One clipboard. Found at Michael's for $1.99. It measures 6"x 9".
2. Image of your choice. This cute image is from It is a digital stamp which I manipulated to form 4 different sized images.
3. One piece of cardstock. If you use a 12" x 12" piece of cardstock you can get two clipboards.
4. Contrasting paper - scraps
5. Ribbons and other embellies of your choice.
6. Magnetic tape.
7. Corner punch and any other punch you want to use.
8. Tape
9. Notepad - 3" x 5" found at any store.

I started by using a blank piece of paper 6" by 9" and cut out the top for the clip. Once I had my template I transferred the design to cardstock.

Once you have your design cut out, round the corners using your corner punch. (The one I use the most I found at Walmart for $4.00).

Now place it on the clipboard and align to the top and edges. Start at the top by gently folding back the edges and taping the paper to the clipboard. Continue taping until cardstock is attached to clipboard.

Print or stamp an image of your choice and then color using any medium you want to use. Mat the image onto a piece of scrap cardstock.

Attach the image where you decide it will look good and then start embellishing it. I used Martha Stewart snow punches, but any punch will do.

Apply ribbon at the top in the open slat, then attach the magnetic tape to the back. Open up the clip and attach the notebook.

I gave these as gifts and coordinated the colors to my friends' kitchen decor. What fun to make and give.

Welcome to Pink Moose Crafts. My name is Mary Brueggemann and I am so happy to see you here. I am now retired with one wonderful grandson who helps me craft. My love of crafting started about two years ago. My husband hooked me on crafting by buying me a Cricut for Christmas and the rest is history now. I had no idea at the time just how expensive this little (big?) hobby is.
