Poster for Church

Our Children's Pastor asked me to make a sign for the Summer Camps sign up table. It needed to attract the interest of kids aged 5-12.

I used my kids paints to add color and my Close To My Heart Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge to cut the sun and letters. It was fun to paint! I haven't done that for a while.

Happy Scrapping!

Happy Birthday Ava

My son went to a birthday party for a classmate yesterday. I made this card for her using "Lucy" papers from Close To My Heart.

My First Jewelry!

A friend and I went to a craft fair a couple of weekends ago and I was inspired by one of the crafters necklaces. She had a metal circle token pendant, press-stamped with the word “Grandma”, and single jewels representing the grandchildren's birthstones. It wasn’t exactly what I wanted for my Mom for Mother's Day, so I took the inspiration and created this necklace and earring set for her:
I picked up all of the jewels and metals at Michael's. I already had a good set of jewelry tools from when I was creating beaded handles for my paper purses; see here and here.

My Aunt made jewelry for years, it was always so much fun to see what she would create next. She's more into making cards now, so she gave me her leftover beads. Maybe I'll get them out, it's fun playing with sparklies!

Happy Crafting!
