I'm Back!

I've decided to do some posts again because I missed my blog!  So here is a post for today.  I made some puggie cards recently with my Silhouette and they were really easy.  I just merged a mirror image of a puggie silhouette together so that they open up like a card and then embellished the front a little bit.  They are tiny cards, but they are pretty cute.

Come on over!!!

Well, the time has come to limit my postings on my blog.  Not because I don't enjoy it, but because I have found that more people look at my creations on my facebook page.  Please feel free to look through my blog because I still welcome visitors and I very much appreciate all of you who have come to visit with me throughout the past few years.  Thank you so much!  You can search for me on facebook by typing in Creative Crafts by The Princess and the Pug.  I will be posting all of my new ideas and creations.  And again, thank you all so very much from the bottom of my heart!  And kisses and hugs from my little puggie girl too!

Infinity Scarf

I am loving the Infinity scarves that are out there now!  And..........they are so easy to make.  Here is a link to how I made this one:
Check it out.  I used jersey material that I got for 50% off at Fabricland.  The scarf is basically a long tube and all you have to do is sew a few straight seams, a tiny little bit of hand stitching and you are done!  Easy peasy and great for Christmas prezzies.  I went out yesterday and got some more fabric.  Some nice snugglie fleece and some more animal print to make one for my Mom's friend.
Well, back to crafting.  See you again soon and Happy Sunday everyone!  Pugs and Hugs!!!

Santa Card

Here's a happy Santa card.  I am LOVING the Santa belt ribbon, so cute!  Got it 1/2 price at Michael's.  The card stock is from the Recollections 'Jolly and Bright' Paper Pad with their matching brads and embellishments.  This has to be one of the cutest Santa's I have ever seen and one of my most fave Christmas paper pads ever.  Love!

Everyday Cards

Here is a card order of 25 everyday cards that my best customer ordered from me recently.  I used various pieces of the 'Antiquities' Sheet Collection Pad from gcd Studios and added a few stamps, stickles, and bling here and there. 
You may notice a very nice looking couple and a very handsome man in the picture behind the display of cards and they would be my beloved Grandparents.  I did a sort of collage of pics for my Gram one year of older photos of her and my Gramps.  The young looking pic of my Gramps is when he was a soccer player in Rochester, New York.  He was an amazing soccer player from what I hear and went on to be an even more amazing coach to so many children and has a soccer field named after him as well as an award given away in his honour every year.  Love them both and miss them so.
And speaking of Gram, it's just about that time of year when I must start the Christmas cookie tradition that she and her Mom started so many years ago.  I am going to start making some of the dough from the wonderful family recipes that have so kindly been passed down to me.  I am trying to be more prepared this year by making some dough and freezing it in advance so that I am not in a big panic the week before Christmas like I seem to be every other year.
So, onto crafting, baking, and other fun stuff.  I hope that you all have a great Friday!
Hugs and Pugs to you all!
