Chews Happy Winter Treat - Free download


It's no wonder we associate the color blue with Winter.  Sunny skies are rare, our garden color is asleep and I feel like I'm in hibernation and maybe just a little 'blue'.

Here's a little gumball tube that is blue, but bright & cheery and sure to make you (or someone you know) smile.

Or course you can add the tag to any kind of treat, a white gift bag, pillow box etc...  

You can download the printable here, six to a sheet.  

Just print on white cardstock.

Punch out 'Chews' Happy with a 1 1/8" circle punch.

Next is a blue 1 3/8" circle punch.

then, Punch the smile circle with a 2" circle punch.

Lastly, I punched a blue 2 1/2" scalloped circle.

If you have a die-cutting machine you could use that instead...but I love my circle punches!  Enjoy & Happy Winter days to you all!  Sue

Q's Creative Card Class: Care Mail

We shouldn't need a special day to share caring thoughts with people, but in the spirit of Valentine's (but without the romance), these cards are all about spreading the love.

It's amazing how much a card can communicate your thoughtfulness in a way that a text, email or social media cannot.  Why?

Because you made it, of course!  Not just your thoughts, but a piece of your creativity and time. (Click on the poster to see more details).

Email me which class you'd like to attend.  To ship to your home, please add that cost from the drop-down menu.

Q's Creative Class: Birthday Wishes CARDS & BOOK!

*Classes start Monday, Jan. 5th!

I know it's cliche, but for me, January is all about getting focused and organized.

I'm hibernating anyway, so I might as well do something constructive, right?

It's also been a while since I've designed a birthday card class and I've gotten many requests... so here we go!

Fun shapes & colors... five cards; one with a pocket & insert and one with a sentiment on the inside.

The Birthday book is a great way to stay on top of birthdays you want to remember, as well as one large pocket (to store cards) and a smaller pocket for envelopes and stamps.  This is a sturdy 11 1/2" x 7 1/2" book with a chipboard spine and a Velcro closing.

You can buy both or just cards.  The whole project makes a lovely gift!

Class schedule is below or have them mailed to you.  All my kits include a photo step-by-step slideshow making it very easy to put together.  You can upload the slideshow to your phone or tablet for portability.


Kits will begin shipping January 3rd.  Please add shipping costs from the drop-down menu.

2014 Musical Countdown to Christmas: Christmas to me

Day 12: This song is new to me and I love it.  And I love the harmonies of Pentatonix. 
What is Christmas to you?  
For me, if I had to break it down to two things, I would say family & music.  There is nothing like music to get you in the Christmas Spirit and remember the reason we celebrate it in the first place; our Savior, Jesus Christ. Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas Day.  Until next year, Sue

2014 Musical Countdown to Christmas: Amazing Grace

Day 10: Il Divo amazing voices... I love bagpipes; hauntingly beautiful.  What I would have paid to be there in person!

"Amazing Grace" is a Christian Hymn with words written by the English poet and clergyman John Newton, published in 1779. With the message that forgiveness and redemption are possible regardless of sins committed and that the soul can be delivered from despair through the mercy of God, "Amazing Grace" is one of the most recognizable songs in the English-speaking world and is now commonly used as a Christmas Hymn.
