My Sheri Crafts #162

Country Strong

August 2 - 8 is National Farmer's Market week.  So, Design Team Sister, Peachy, had asked us to create any project with a farm / country life inspiration.  Check out the newest theme over at My Sheri Crafts.


I decided to make note pad covers with my two favorite farm animals... a pig and a cow.  I had to create my own cuts using images I got from the internet.  The thought bubbles are from Cricut cartridge: Cricut Font and Basic Shapes and I used the Explore to write out the text then wrote over them with a fine point marker.  Each background papers are Basic Gray.  The embossing folder above is Darice and the embossing folder below is Cuttlebug.  The pink flower above is a Fiskar punch


I decided to use a stamp on the very first page of the note pads inside.  I got each stamp for $1 at either Michael's or A.C. Moore... sorry, I don't remember




I made 3 other farm animals to make more note pads in the future.  Yeah, ok, you guessed it...  I ran out of note pads, but I decided that I'm not going to buy anything new and must use up what I already have first!




Note pad size: 3.5" x 5.0"

You can never have enough birthday cards and that's exactly what the newest theme is over at My Sheri Crafts. Design Team Sister, Sue, had asked us to create a birthday card specifically for someone under the age of 13.

 

It's been a long time since I made any special fold cards so I wanted to do exactly that.  I also wanted to use up my scraps!  The papers are from DCWV.  The gift die cut is from Cricut cartridge: Christmas Cheer. The "Happy Birthday" is a stamp from an all occasion set.  The small square that says "a gift for you" is a stamp I picked up at Michael's for $1. 


Card size: 5.5" x 4.25"  when flat

Fourth of July is next weekend so Design Team Sister, Glenda, had asked us to create any card or project that is patriotic .  Check out the newest challenge over at My Sheri Crafts


I wanted to make something a bit on the rustic side so this is what I came up with.  These are scrap pieces of papers from my daughter's Civic class project so I thought they were perfect to use since they're patriotic.  The three layers of stars are cuts from Cricut and I popped them up at each layer for some dimension.  All pieces were inked at the edges... I should have distress the printed paper, but oh well.  The flag heart buttons I've had for over two years and I finally got a chance to use them!  The colors were so bright on them so I also distressed them for a more rustic look.


Card size: 5.5" x 4.25"

Father's Day is coming up soon so Design Team Sister, Sandy, had asked us to create something masculine.  Whether it's a card or a crafty project you'd like to make, come check out the newest challenge over at My Sheri Crafts


I don't usually make masculine cards... I have a lot more fun adding flowers to things.  However, it's a necessary thing we must do from time to time.  This one is for my hubby for Father's Day.  He does love his exercise!  The triathlon symbols were downloaded from the internet and I made them  into SVG files to cut with my Cricut.  The border punch is a Fiskar... reminds me of waves.  I fell in love with the  $1 stamp I got from Michael's Craft.  I figured it would be a perfect statement for this high impact exercise card... since I prefer the couch.

Card size: 5.5" x 4.25"

My Sheri Crafts #158



Summer is approaching fast and the heat is becoming unbearable... especially if you live in South Florida.  What better way to cool off but to go to the beach... or at least drench yourself with water.  Our very own Sheri had asked us to create any project that features the water.  So come check out the newest challenge over at My Sheri Crafts


Instead of a card that features the beach, I decided to decorate a simple hand soap bottle.  I used Goo Begone to remove all the branding.  The flourish is from Sizzix and I used a dark brown vinyl because it's water proof.  I hot glued the shells and silk flowers to represent the beach theme.  This is the color theme of my powder room and this project is LONG overdue.


Some of you may remember, this project from My Sheri Crafts #115 "Let's Take a Trip" where I made a wreath.  This wreath is hanging in the same powder room and I just now made a matching accessory for it.  It's been lonely for a long time.  You can check out the details of the wreath here.
