My Sheri Crafts #189


September 9th is National Teddy Bear Day and our awesome leader, Sheri, is asking you to make any project that includes... what else... a Teddy Bear.  Come and join us at My Sheri Crafts and show us your Teddy Bear!


My project for this theme is an altered Planter's Peanuts can.  I save these cans because you can reuse them for so many things.  I've made pencil/pen holders and even coin banks from these as you can see from the links below:

The background paper used to cover the can is a thick cardstock from DCWV Pet stack.  I have a stamp I got from Michael's Crafts that says "one of the secrets of a HAPPY LIFE is continuous SMALL TREATS" that was just a little too big for the can so I printed it on the computer instead


I put a bow on the bear and sadly... used hot glue to stick the little critter on to the can

To complete my project... you got it... filled it up with treats!

My Sheri Crafts #188


It's that time of the year again when the kiddos go back to school!  To celebrate this glorious occasion (yes glorious... I call it "my alone time"), I got to choose this challenge theme for My Sheri Crafts.  Come join us and create any project with a school theme!
 

I've always wanted to make one of these crayon / pencil wreaths.  I finally made one for a friend that works at our local elementary school.  At Michael's Crafts, I found this monogram wooden wreath base.  I thought it was the perfect thing to use so that I could personalize it for my friend.  

I covered the "M" using DCWV paper.  The "Ms. Martin" was created using SCAL.  I outlined the mini chalkboard with Stickles.  The school bus and the "READ" are recycled elements from an older project My Sheri Crafts #92 which no longer exists.

Four boxes of Crayola 24-pack crayons was used up for this project.  Can I just say... this is one HEAVY wreath... fragile too!  These crayons break so easily so I hope this wreath doesn't fall down
  • Papers from DCWV
  • 4 24-pack Crayola crayons
  • "Ms. Martin" was designed in SCAL and cut with the Cricut
  • Chalkboard bought from Michael's Crafts
  • "READ" is from a Cricut cartridge (can't remember which one)
  • School bus is from a Cricut cartridge (can't remember which one)

The Summer Olympics will start next weekend in Rio.  To celebrate this event, Design Team Sister, Sarah, had asked us to create any project with a sports theme.  Join us to help support the Olympics over at My Sheri Crafts

For this theme, I wanted to showcase my son's first ever race.  This was a casual race just for kids at Walt Disney World in January 2016.  It was only 1 mile long and without practice and running through mud (since it had just finish raining), he did it in less than 10 minutes.


He was so HAPPY to get his medal!


This is a 2-page scrapbook layout.  They are each 8" x 8" layout pages.  I started an album to store all of our race bibs... and this was the first one I actually made into a layout

  • Layout size: 8" x 8"
  • Papers from DCWV
  • "my first race" was designed in SCAL and cut with the Cricut
  • "I DID IT!" was designed in SCAL and cut with the Cricut
  • "Running Mickey" was an image I printed out from the internet
  • Journaling was printed out using Word Document

Thanks for looking!

Continuing on with the summer theme, Design Team Sister, Glenda, has asked us to make any project that features  ice cream.  Oh yeah!  My favorite type of treat is this week's challenge over at My Sheri Crafts

I took advantage of this theme to make my niece, Emma, a birthday card.  It's the perfect theme since her birthday party is a "sweets" theme


I made a variation of step A card.  2" x 4.25" for the left panel to fit the ice cream and 3.5" x 3.5" for the shorter panel to fit the "4" since Emma is turning 4! I know you can't see it, but every element is popped-up for dimension

  • Card size: 5.5" x 4.25"
  • Papers from Basic Gray
  • Ice cream is from Cricut cartridge: Sweet Treats
  • Embossing on ice cream scoops from Cuttlebug: D'vine Swirl
  • Embossing on ice cream cone from Cuttlebug: Mandarin Screen
  • Stamp: "happy birthday" colored with Copics markers
  • Stamp: "small present" colored with a glitter gel pen
  • Tiny pink flowers are a Fiskar punch
  • Glitter on ice cream scoops are Stickles
  • "Emma" is cut in SCAL - font: Aldhabi
  • "4" is cut in SCAL - font: Impact

My Sheri Crafts #185


It's summer time!  Design Team Sister, Sue, has asked us to make any project that has a beach or seaside theme for this week's challenge over at My Sheri Crafts

I chose to go with "flip flops" and the straps and sentiment are all popped up for a bit of dimension


This isn't a card you can open up but more like a postcard where you can write on the back.  It will fit a regular note card (A2) envelope


Yes, I know... a little design flaw.  It's not that easy to write on the back with all the popped up elements on the front :P 
 

  • Papers are DCWV
  • Flip flop cut is from Cricut cartridge: Pink Journey
  • "missing you" is a stamp
  • Green leaves is a Sizzix die cut
