Angels


Angels... the new challenge over at My Sheri Crafts!  Design Team Sister, Peachy, had asked us to celebrate "Be an Angel" Day on August 22nd, by creating any angel project

Have you ever seen a craft project and thought they are the most adorable things ever?  Then you think to yourself... "I can make that!"




Well that's exactly what I did with these angle ornaments.  I've seen so many of them online and decided to attempt and make them myself


This white one was my first attempt.  I used plain white cardstock and brushed it with white perfect pearls.  The trimmings were from a stash I received from Design Team Sister, Charlotte.  The wings are Cheery Lynn die cut of a butterfly.  The head is a bell you often see in crafts during Christmas time and it's perfect for hanging up the ornaments.  The halo is made from a glittery piece of pipe cleaner



My second attempt is a smaller version and a more perfect size ornament.  I also decided that angels don't always have to wear white, do they?  So, into my stash of scrap papers I go!  The trimmings are also from Charlotte... thank you Charlotte!

Well, what do you think?

Shaped Cards


Shapes, shapes, and more shapes!   That's the new challenge over at My Sheri Crafts!  Design Team Sister, Sandy, asked us to create any card as long as
the shape is not your typical rectangle / square shape



Since we've had a list of upcoming projects for a while, I actually created this card for my son's Kindergarten teacher for Teacher Appreciation week. 


I decided to make it an easel card and display the teacher's name so that she knows that it was especially made just for her. 
I made the apple out of various different apple cuts I found in Cricut Craft Room and cut it with SCAL.  I used a Darice embossing folder for both the leaves and the apple and inked it.  The teacher's name is actually made from the old style label maker and framed with a Spellbinder die cut
 



 After I made this card, both of my daughters had requested I do the same for their teachers.  Both girls being in Middle School meant having to make 12 more cards (6 teachers each).  The request was a late notice for me so I didn't make the 12 cards as intricate as the first one.

I used the same cut for all 12 cards and also personalized it for each teacher except one.  One of the teachers transferred before Teacher Appreciation Week so I made the last one with the just "Make Learning Fun" tag for whoever happened to substitute that class

Christmas in July


There's a new challenge over at My Sheri Crafts... Christmas in July (with lots of layers).  That's right!  Design Team Sister, Sue, has asked us to create a Christmas project that includes lots and lots of layers. 



I couldn't really decide on what project to work on but eventually ended up making two things.  Here they are... a wreath and a tree!

For the wreath, I decided to recycle an old book that had missing pages.  I've always admired wreaths made up of newspapers, book pages, music sheets... paper in general.  I found quite a bit of images online of these type of wreaths and decided to make my own for the first time.  What do you think?

The only problem (which I didn't notice until the project was completed) is that each of those cones were rolled up the same way... showing the Author's name at the top.  So, I hope I can find someone who likes Pierce Anthony to give this wreath to

 

For the tree project, I decided to make multiple layers from using a Fiskar border punch, then folding at each scallop.  It turned out fatter than I had imagined so I stopped at the 9th layer and added a "stem" or base made from a finished roll of glue dots then covered with a coordinating paper from the tree


Here is a view from the top

FOOD, FOOD, and more FOOD


My turn to choose a theme for a challenge over at My Sheri Crafts... and I chose FOOD !


I have been seeing a lot of cards made from Spellbinder die cut pieces as the base so I wanted to give it a go.  I took a die cut that would fit an A2 envelop and ended up making it an easel card


For my food choice... naturally, I went with cupcakes.  I sooo LOVE cupcakes!  I chose a cupcake cut from one of my original Cricut cartridges... Home Decor.  The coordinating papers are from Basic Gray.  The icing part of the cupcake is embossed with Darice then I used glitter over the embossed section.  I used flowers from my stash and the leaves are from one of Martha Stewart border punches.  The sentiment is a stamp and heat embossed.  Now that I look at it... I don't think it was the best sentiment to use.  I'll probably change it to "You're Sweet" or something along those lines.  Oh well!

There's a new challenge over at My Sheri Crafts.  Design Team Sister, Sheri, had asked us to make any project that used at least 2 stars


Since I've been making shaped cards lately, I decided to make this project a shaped card as well



The star shape base and all the lettering are made from using SCAL.  Patterned paper is from DCWV.  The 3 miniature stars are brads and the notes are buttons.  The "BEST" is covered with glitter to make it pop
