Good Morning! Happy Friday to you all! I have a couple days off work this week and finally have managed to get my crafty fix! I spent last night skyping with my lovely friend Lauren and as usual we had a blast! I stayed up WAYYY too late but oh well, it was well worth it! She inspired me to make this…..
The weather isn’t great here in Halifax today so there is no pretty sunshine to add to my photo. I wanted to take the picture outside because I prefer the natural lighting rather than my light box that sits in my craft room. I used a couple of pages from my DCWV The French Country Stack paper pad because I love the glittery effect the paper has and it coordinates so well.
I only have one teeny tiny bird die so I had to hunt through some older paper pads to find this little bird to add to my project. I made lots of hand made flowers and added some purchased ones as well and of course, lace and ribbon!
I wanted to give the roof lots of dimension so I used my scalloped circle punch to make the cut little shingles then added more flowers. I am totally in love with this project. It was SO MUCH FUN to make!!
Don’t you think this would make just the sweetest housewarming gift? I absolutely adore it! Thanks Lauren for giving me the push to give this project at try!!
I might be sorry for making this statement but I am tempted to do a tutorial on this project! Tony has been gently nudging me to do a video with my new camera. He loves playing around with that thing and I think he would have fun playing Director! LOL! He is so sweet and helpful like that. This project might be a bit long for a video but I will have to think on it Anyway….
I hope you all have a fantastic day and thanks so much for stopping by!
Good Morning Blog Friends!
A co-worker asked me to make an altered box and card for a gift for her aunt. She asked for dark wood and purple and I was unsure how this would turn out but in the end, I really like it!
I just used regular craft paint and water to stain the wood and then put a healthy layer of sealer over top of it, once it dried and then started decorating.
I really enjoyed making this project. I think I would like to make another one this weekend! Kim recently got some amazing buttons in at The Cutting Garden and I used one in the center of my flower for my card. Love It!!!
I hope you all have a great day and thanks for stopping by!!!
Good Afternoon Crafty Friends…
I am so fortunate to have an entire room devoted to my crafting. Tony has helped me this weekend to do a bit of organizing and I promised my crafty friends from The Cutting Garden to take some pictures so here goes. Please don’t take note of the dust bunnies… We have 2 dogs and 2 cats that live in this house with us I like my pets way more that I like immaculate floors!
There is a reason I very rarely let my husband into my craft room…..
These are the flowers my lovely boss gave to me for Easter… I had to snap a picture of them!I have pretty much exhausted all wall space in this room… These are my much loved shelves… also pretty much full to capacity!
And this next one was where it got a bit dicey with Tony yesterday *giggle* He started to count my punches to see how many curtain rods I would need to hold them all. Let’s just say, he gave up when he realized I had more than one drawer of them! This wall of punches emptied out one of my punch drawers…. I know, I know! I am hanging my head in shame here! LOL!!! The other side of the room is still too messy to share with you…. next time LOL!!!
And the motto of this story is… Martha Stewart punches are Damned Addictive!!!!
Thanks for stopping by!!!
Good Evening! This week I am hosting the You Can Do It challenge over on SplitCoast Stampers. There are tons of people at work dropping like flies with this nasty cold bug that is going around so I decided to make some teabag holders to hopefully cheer up my sickie friends. I decided to kill two birds with one stone and challenge everyone to make some cute little tea bag holders and send them to a friend that is feeling a little under the weather. Here’s a look at what I created…
Hopefully this challenge wont be too basic for them!
I hope you are enjoying your evening and thanks so much for stopping by!
Prima….. How I love everything Prima! Check out these beautiful Prima stamps I scored at The Cutting Garden today….
Amazing huh? I picked up these three but Kim brought in 6 or 7 different stamps and they arrived today! I had to reign myself in because she also brought in some new Martha Stewart punches that I just couldn’t resist. I can’t wait to start playing with these!
Have a great evening!
Good Afternoon! *yawn* Today is my day off and I have had an interesting weekend. I spent Sunday afternoon teaching a class at The Cutting Garden and they ladies were very good about putting up with me. I haven’t been feeling great, the Doc has me on a crazy high dose of antibiotics that are making me SOOO sick! ugh! Hopefully I am at then end of this… the last 10 days have been very tiring and I will be glad to start feeling back to normal!
Ok enough gab from me… I have posed another new class for February at The Cutting Garden… A cute little gift set! Have a look…
The card was a a bit tricky to get to slide right but in the end it turned out really well! I made this lovely little note book using my Bind It All and stamped each page with the cute little humming bird.
Home made gifts are really the best way to go in my opinion!
I hope you all are having a great day and thanks so much for stopping by!
Kim at The Cutting Garden challenged me to create a calendar for a class in January. I have been turning this over in my mind for a week or more without much success. Last night at the Crop she gave me a simple unfinished wooden frame and it just all came together for me….
I need to thanks Ms. Lauren from Laurenscraft for teaching me how to make these flowers! They are amazing and so easy!!! Thanks again Lauren! *hugs* I will be teaching this class on Sunday, January 20th at The Cutting Garden if any of you who are local are interested in coming in to craft with us!!
Thanks so much for popping by!!
