Paper Bunting

This year I decided to complete some old paper crafting projects. I started with a Halloween layout using a discontinued Close To My Heart paper pack. I used the Workshop On The Go layouts, more on that in another post. The bonus project was the "SPOOKY" banner pictured below.

That project got me started making a paper banner for the next holiday. I made the "THANKFUL" banner using leftovers from another discontinued CTMH paper pack.

At work, I was asked to make a banner for the holiday lunch. I used my Cricut and some discontinued CTMH stamps to add Christmas trees and ornaments to the banner.

The holiday banner was successful enough that I was asked to make a banner, pictured below, for a retirement luncheon.

I have discovered that I love designing banners. As a bonus, I can make use of the beautiful paper leftovers in my craft room!

Ooh La La!

Layouts made with CTHM Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge and Wanderful paper pack.

It's a new year and a great time to work on some new crafty projects.  Right now I'm organizing my completed scrapbook pages so I can see what I need to work on next.  I'm also getting my house ready for a Craft-a-long.  I have new card kits available for purchase as well as the circuit cuts for the layout above.  Interested in making pendant necklaces?  I have lots of supplies from the Bling & Base line for you to choose from.  Reserve your spot by email or text.  Dates are Friday, January 9th 6pm, Tuesday, January 13th, 6pm, and Saturday January 17th, 10am.

Chalk It Up to Summer Vacations

Remember the good ole days of summer vacation?  Nothing planned except summer camp and maybe a week or two for a family trip.  Nowadays, summer is a busy time for me.  Not only do I have work just like the rest of the year, I also need to squeeze in out of town trips (that I really enjoy!) for family events because a lot of my family (all of the kids and most of the adults) do get the summer off.  

So I've had to reschedule the Scrapbook Workshop I had planned for August 28th.  This is actually a good thing because if you didn't sign up and you would like to participate, you still have time!  Place your kit order by September 5th and join me for the workshop on Friday September 19th at 6pm.

During the workshop, you will complete two 2-page layouts (pictured above).  You can participate either in person or virtually.  In your kit will be all the materials needed to make the layouts, with all the paper pre-cut and the Cricut cuts completed.  The cost is $20 if you come to my house the night of the workshop or pick up your kit.  The cost for having the kit mailed to your house is $26 and you will also receive a detailed instruction sheet with pictures of the completed layouts.  Because I had to postpone this workshop, I will also be having a Halloween themed workshop at the end of September.  Details coming soon, but it will be a two-page layout and some treat bags.  I hope you can join me!

Card Buffet

I've been very busy lately making up new card kits for my next Card Buffet on August 12th. My goal is to have 24 kits to choose from.  I love making cards and this has been a great excuse to do just that!  Now that I'm close to my goal, I can get back to some other crafty projects.  

My niece wants to make a mini book based on a tv show she likes.  I helped her make one a couple of years ago based on the mermaid show H2O. Maybe we can squeeze in a crafting session before she goes back to school!
