This project was also inspired by a video I saw on youtube. It is called One Sheet Wonder Mini Album. You can see her tutorial here: Traci Cornelius. Instead of a mini album I made mine into a Dream Journal for my daughter. I thought she could write down her hopes, dreams and goals for the next year. I made the journal artistic to match her personality.
I was watching you tube and came across a wonderful teacher. She did a tutorial on a multi purpose book. It could be used for so many different things. I made mine into prayer journals. For a great tutorial on how to make the base check out Elaine's video here: Paper craft Button
For my books I used paper that was not my favorite design. I stamped Life is Fragile stamp and layered it onto card stock and attached to the belly band. I added simple punched flowers to give it a little color and the inside of the good with the pick flower on top has pink pages inside. They came together very fast and would make a great gift.
Today is Sophie's 1st Birthday Party. Im very sad Im not in California for the special Sophie in Wonderland Party. I sent a little gift keeping with the theme. It is a painters tray from Hobby lobby and I just used different images and papers to decorate it.
I made this banner for my friend Kalebs high school graduation. I used card board for the base, a paper pack from Tuesday morning, embossing folders for texture, lots of pop dots and the cricut to cut the letters. I really hope he likes it.
Every Year I host two tables at an assisted livings mothers day tea. Here are the two tables My mother and I sponsored this year.
For the centerpiece on this table I used books, gloves, a metal basket filled with apples, a garden tin from my house and fresh flowers in a metal tin. For the placemats I just cut burlap. The napkin rings are TP rolls with Crimped paper and I clipped a flower to ti for color.
This was our garden table. We had garden hats for each guest (dollar tree) and the napkin rings had clip on flowers that the ladies clipped to their hat ribbon.
For the gift bags we added glued seed packets to the front of a small lunch bag. The guest at this table said they felt like they were at a garden party.
For the Luau table we got creative. And used lots of items from the Dollar Tree including, dish drying pads for the placements, pink flamingo wine glasses, leis (3/$1), paper pineapple and hawaiian girl.
The napkin rings were made from TP rolls covered with crimped paper. I just glued a pink flower on top to give some color. For a little gift we filled colorful takeout containers with mints and chocolate.
I used two of my house plants, my surfboard cutting board, and misc. mixed china. The guest at this table described it as "a really fun party"
This is a balloon arch I made for the baby shower. I made the base using PVC pipe with Repair Couplings to help with the arch. My husband made a cement base with a piece of pipe (used as a sleeve) large enough to hold the PVP pipe. It took about 1 hour to put together and the base is reusable.
Thanks for stopping by!
I was recently in a banner swap #somebunnyluvsyou2014 and this is the banner I made for my swap partner. I used corrugated cardboard and painted it with a white wash. I made handmade rosettes, scrap paper, and used my cricut to make the letters. I added beads and scrap fabric between the letters. On each side i used the Tim Holtz birdcage die and stampin up flower punches and bird punch. I'll post some pictures soon of the awesome banner I received.
