Tattered Angels: Irresistible Tag

Erin-Bassett-Tattered-Angeles-Resist-Bird-Tag-300x383Well it's my turn to post again on the Tattered Angles blog and this is a cute tag that I came up with.  It's perfect to top a gift basket, jar, or bottle for a hostess gift.  

I cut out the base of it out using my Cricut Expression and real wood veneer paper so it looks really neat in real life.  There's a full tutorial up on my postso hop on over there to see how I made it.

  • And lastly, I just wanted to let you guys know that I won't be writing for Mixology Crafts any more {there's no drama, or any of that type of thing so don't worry about that; I'm just going a different direction} And I'll still be sharing lots of Provo Craft projects here on my own blog so you won't be missing anything.

"Home Sweet Home" Mini Scrapbook {+ free quote download}

Yay, it's Friday!!  For me that means girls day!!  BUT, before I go off & have some creative time with my BFFs I'll share this cute Cosmo Cricket book I's at Remember When if you want to see it close up.


For that little window I just used some of the plastic product packaging to create it...


I also used the plastic product packaging to make an extra page {which is kinda hard to see in photos since it's a clear house page}:


This is the back-side of the clear page:











And my favorite part:


Want all the word art quotes I created & used?  Well it's yours for the taking!

Monogram Ring

Blog - Erin_Bassett - Cuttlebug - Coredination - RingWhew, I'm super busy these days with life & work, but I just wanted to share the link to my Mixology Crafts blog post on how I made this fun ring using one of the Cuttlebug Embossing Plus here to see how I made it.

I'm hoping to have a chance to post some of the other projects I'm working on soon...I'm just whipping out projects like crazy these days & it's leaving little time for showing you.  Gee, it would be so nice to have a couple more hours in the day sometimes.  :)

Beautifying with Cricut Vinyl {+ peeks at my container garden}

Erin_Bassett-Welcome PlantMy project for the Mixology Crafts blog today is beautifying a flower pot I've had for quite awhile.  {You can get the free tutorial on how I created it here.}

The plant that's in the "welcome" pot is a basil that I got a Trader Joe's for super cheap and thought that we would have used it all up right away, but there was a bit left that I planted and it took off like crazy.  The container is close to 5 gallons so although it doesn't look like it from the photo, it's quite large now.  

In other "exciting" gardening jalapeƱos are getting bigger!!  I'm so excited!
