Tomorrow is our January card swap with the "Paper Trail Friends". There is a group of friends that exchange cards and tags at the end of every month. A theme is selected monthly and this month we decided to make a Valentine card and tag. We have a whole month to create the tag and card but most of us always do it last minute. That was definitely me this month. My card is really simple this month. It supposed to look like a box of chocolates with heart candies on it. Stay tuned for rest of the card and tag creations tomorrow on the blog above. Thanks for stopping by to check out my creations and leaving such great comments. It really means alot. Have a great week!
Here are the projects that we made at my craft class this weekend. I tried to stick with the Valentine theme. We had so much fun! As usual it started at 9:30 and ended in the evening around 7:00 pm. Time flies by especially when you're having fun! I hope to do this again in a few months from now.
I used the SU top note die cut for the cute little bag.
This cute little favor for the water bottles. I used a couple Air Heads for the candies instead of the Crystal Light travel packs for the water bottle.
The penguin is from my Silhouette online store and the pink and white polka dot box is similar to the milk carton box but I changed the measurements to make it a little wider.
I thought mailbox was so cute and its a SVG cut file that I downloaded online. I had so much fun putting this together. Although I had to make 16 kits I forgot to cut the bottoms for several of the kits. I must have fallen asleep in between the cutting. lol
I didn't know what to use for the handle to make this cute Hello Kitty fan. I asked my husband what he thought and he suggested the paint stir sticks from Home Depot. I went there to find out that they don't sell them. I didn't mind paying for it but they insisted that they don't sell it. The clerk said they give it out if you buy paint. I was able to say "PLEASE" and he gave me enough to make one for everyone at my craft class. It's really cute. This one here that I made for myself is actually a plastic ruler for the handle because at the time that I made it I didn't have the stir stick. Anyway I love it anyway!
For the hot sunny and humid days I made this hand held Hello Kitty fan. It measures 10-1/2" wide by 7-1/2" tall. I used a 12" plastic ruler for the holder and covered it with pink sheer ribbon. I downloaded the image from the internet and had to make a few adjustments using my Silhouette to cut this image. Normally you'll find her with the bow on her head but I wanted to use the flower instead and used a flower punch and buttons with some glitter to give it some bling. The card stock that I used is not as thick as I wanted it but since I used the "Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive" to glue the pieces together it makes it really hard and stiff. It turned out perfect!! It's really hard to find this glue but I have asked Fisher Hawaii if they can stock this item. They will be checking into it. I know that Target sells it but I checked this past weekend and they were all sold out. I hope they bring it back again. Thanks everyone for stopping by to check out this cute Hello Kitty fan. Have a great week!
I created this picture frame using my Silhouette machine. The frame is made of 100# card stock then I covered it with the DP. I also used the same card stock for the back of the frame. I found that it's easier for me to cut the Hello Kitty with the Silhouette instead of using the die cuts. The picture is my 1 year grand daughter with matching hair styles from the little girl from the Monster's Inc movie. This picture frame measure 6-1/2" wide x 6" tall. Now to figure out what to make for boys. It's hump day in 5 minutes!! Have a good day!
My last project from this fun filled crafting weekend was creating these "Angry Birds". I have sooo much scrap paper and this was perfect to use it to make these. I created these with my Silhouette machine. There was ALOT of adjusting to be made to create these birds. lol I think I have a couple more of them to make. Well I have a 3 day work week this week and I'll be off on Friday again! Yay! I'll definitely be in my craft room again. Have a Great Week everyone!
Here I am again posting the rest of my Valentine creations! These were cut from both my Silhouette machine and Eclips machines. Hello Kitty was also cut from my Silhouette machine. The first creation is a gift card holder and can also be used to put some candy in it. The Hello Kitty box has a flip top cover and measures 3" x 3". The cute little heart garden tool carrier measures 4" wide and 2" deep and can be used to add candies or whatever you want. This is it for now with Valentine stuff! The weather is ugly today and actually gave me more energy to sit in my craft room to work on stuff and to actually put stuff away. It's always a work in progess! Hope you all had a great weekend!!
Wow I can't believe I've been on a roll here this weekend. Here are some Valentine goodies that I put together again today. I used my Silhouette machine to cut these cute little penguins. I've been having so much fun making them. I guess I need to get my butt in gear to start prepping some kits for a craft get together at the end of this month. I have one more day since it's a holiday for me on Monday to do more crafts. If you stopped by earlier to check out my blog, I was having major issues with my blog background. I tried to change the look and I messed it up royal! It took me about 4 hours to get it back to where it is now. This is staying for now until I get tired of it. Anyway thanks again everyone for stopping by to check out these cute little penguin pencils!
I am on a roll today making Valentine crafts. Here I have a Mailbox that measures 7" tall and 5" wide. It's such a cute idea that I got from a svg cut file. So I finally am making use of my Eclips machine that my husband bought for me. I am so amazed at what I can do with it. I also love my Silhouette machine too. I had fun making this that I totally forgot to turn my paper and realized it afterwards that I cut the front door section the wrong way. That's okay it look fine to me. I will be working on more this weekend so don't forget to come back and check it out. Thanks for checking out my Valentine creations today. Have a Great weekend.
It's been a while since my last post. I finally got the chance to work on my Valentine's creations. Here I am using the "Bigz XL Fancy Favor Bag" from Stampin Up. The handles, heart border and heart flourish was cut from my Silhouette machine that I created. The front of the bag stamp is also from Stampin Up stamps called "Best of Everything". This turned out exactly like I wanted it to and I love it. Guess I'll be using this as my favors. Thanks to everyone who continue to check out my creations. I hope to be posting more. Have a Great 3 day Weekend if you have Monday off.
