Okay, I'm ready to do some crafting, join me in my Kraft Kottage! I'll be offering some new classes and open crafting. The first class will be to make a gift bag, and it will be held on two different days. You can do one or both.
I've been gone way too long. I've haven't had a good year and I want to change that by getting back into my crafting. Creating is good for ones soul.
Earlier this week I had some friends over to help me make up some corsages for our group. I think they turned out pretty cute!
It was tons of fun and everyone loved them!
It did get my creative juices flowing so I'm working on some cute containers to hold chocolates, I'll probably get them finished to show off in a few days.
The seasons are upon us! Soon the Halloween costumes will be put away to make way for the fall decor for Thanksgiving! Such beauty in all of it, well, except some of the costumes! They go way out sometimes, but what fun!
The following is a photo of the projects from a class I did earlier this month. They were so fun!
I've got some new classes posted after a long and fun break. I've been having lots of fun with family and friends, but now it's time to get serious with the crafting! I love papercrafting and love to share with friends. I hope you can join me.
I was invited to do a demo for some ladies and had a lot of fun. I met some new friends and got to visit with a friend. We made a quick little card, then I tried to show them how to cut and make a box from the Art Philosophy cartridge, but my Cricut quit! Bummer, they were very understanding and even invited me back!
How funny, I just can't figure out how to create a blog title so I'm going to 'wing it' for awhile until I come up with just the right ones. But if you're reading this I appreciate that you're not running off. Thank you!
The card I created for today is so cute and simple.
It's a 4x4 card. I used Colonial White for the card base, Sarita for the mat, Goldrush and Buttercup for the flower, cut using Artiste (pg.55) and the banner cut from Buttercup using Artiste (pg.35), Happy Birthday is from the Banner Wishes, My Acrylics stamp set. All are products from Close to My Heart.
Don't forget to make a comment and/or follow my blog to be entered into this months drawing!
I'm a member of a card club. They are a super group of ladies, monthly we take turns hosting and coming up with ideas for cards or, well, sometimes, anything. This month the challenge was sympathy cards, sadly something that we all need occasionally. The girls made some beautiful cards and I am very appreciative for all of them.
This is the card I made. I'm pleased with it and everyone seemed to like it.
I used White Daisy cardstock, Twilight ink, the design element was cut using the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge (pg. 26), the stamped element was from the Swirls Around stamp set.
All are from Close to My Heart.
I did make two designs but opted to use only one of them.
I'm getting a late start this month, but there will still be a drawing. This month the prize will be one of each of the items I post each day, that I make. Sometimes there may be items I share that are made by others and those won't be part of the drawing and I will remind you of that if it happens.
The drawing will be over at midnight, August 31, 2014, Pacific time. You can enter by making a comment and you'll get an additional entry if you follow me.
