Felt Headbands

Hi All!! Today, I would like to share with you my newest crafting obsession- felt! I got inspired by all the cute things I have been seeing on Pinterest, and decided to give it a go myself. There was a sale at JoAnn's on felt, so I bought a bunch, and went NUTS! Here are a couple of things I made:

I drew a template for the first flower on paper, cut it out, and used it as a pattern.
I got the template for the second headband from Here! It was very easy, and I loved the way it turned out!
I will be making MANY more of these! :)

Today is the first day my Etsy shop is open! I have LOTS of things planned for it, starting with my card for today! It is part of a gift set that I am giving to my daughter's teacher, but you can purchase one (or several) of your own HERE.

I have also made a video tutorial to go along with it!

Episode 14: Graduation Money Card

Hi Everbody!

My project for today is a graduation card. I got the inspiration (idea) for this card from Dawn Griffith. She made a Money holder card awhile ago, and I was perusing her Youtube channel, and I came across it. I thought it would be perfect to use as a Graduation card, because we all know that despite our great efforts of creativity, what the kid really wants is the money inside, lol.

The grad stamp I used is from Studio 112. I found it in the dollar bin at JoAnn's. I cut it out, glitter embossed it, and popped it up on a few dimensionals. I also used my poorly neglected Cicut, and cut out some stars using the George and Basic Shapes Cartridge.

Hope you enjoy the tutorial!

Have a FANTASTIC day! :)

Tri-Shutter Birthday Card

Hi Everybody!

I posted a while back that I was attempting a tri-shutter card. Well, I did it, took pics of it, and forgot to post about it!

I ended up making the card for my daughter's teacher. It was difficult for me to get all the dimensions right for the patterned paper, (I SUCK at measurements), but once I did, putting it together was easy and fun!

I am trying to get ideas for doing another one. Would you guys like me to do a video?

Believe it or not, this card is an A2 (4 1/4x5 1/2)!

If you have any other questions, please let me know! Have a GREAT day! :)

Mojo Monday 185

Hi Everbody!

Today's project is a Mojo Monday sketch! For this card, I used a couple of the elements I used for last week's card. (I just LOVE that background stamp!) I will be honest, and say that I kind of struggled with this sketch. I created a card yesterday that I liked, but felt was missing something. So, I slept on it, and woke up with a few new ideas! I pulled out all the big guns of papercrafting: tearing, ribbon scrunching, embossing, sponging, you name it, it's on this card! LOL! After all of that, I am pretty pleased with the end result. I just wish I could take better pictures, becuase it look SO much better in person!

Well, enjoy anyway, and have a FANTASTIC day! :)
