Embelished Clip Board

Hello Everyone!!

    Good morning and TGIF!! I've been babysitting a friends baby, so I haven't had a chance to make anything. But in honor of Teacher Appreciation Week, with the help of my daughter we made a clip board for her teacher. The only thing I didn't get a chance to do was put her teacher's name on it on the back. It got late, but it still came out really nice. Here is a pic of the front and back:

   The materials we used: I also used a sponge brush and paper trimmer
  •  Sonoma Paper Pack from Close To My Heart
  •  Clip Board
  •  Ribbon that matched
  •  Pod Podge

  First I cut the paper to fit on the clip board:


  Then my daughter put a thin layer of Mod Podge on the clip board:

  Next I paced the paper down and with a scrapper I got all the wrinkles and air bubbles out, then my daughter put on top layer of Mod Podge, also a thin layer:

   Next I cut some strips of ribbon and my daughter double knotted them to the clip. We did the same process to the back except with out the ribbon. The next pic if of the materials we used. Except we did not use the purple vinyl, that I wanted to use for her teacher's name on the back. But here is the pic:

  I hope you liked it and it was super easy. Hope you all have a great day and Happy Crafting!!

Flower Clips

Hello Everyone

   Hope you all are doing great, me I'm abit under the weather, so for today I made a really simply craft. Flower clips, you can put them on headbands, lace headbands, rubber band, beanies, or just by themselves. Here is the pic of the flower clips by themselves:

   The materials I used are:
  •  Fake flowers
  •  Gems
  •  Clips
  •  Glue Gun
   Here is a pic of the materials, minus the glue gun:

   First I took apart the flowers. Shown here:

   I then glued each layer of flower together. Then I glued the gem to the center and last I glued the clip to the back. Here it the pic of the glued flowers and gem:

   One last little note: If you notice on the last pic, I did not use the back and the center of the original flower. I hope you liked my this post. I hope I feel better tomorrow so that I can make a better project. Hope you all have a great day and Happy Crafting!!

Easter Layout

Hello Everyone!!

  Hope everyone is well and in the best of Spirits!! I feel better good today, and today I made the Easter Layout I said I'd post on Monday. It's a bit late but it's made. I haven't added the pictures yet, as I still have to print them out, I will use two pictures of my girls together and one of them Egg hunting. The pictures will go on the patterned paper and the journal will be on the solid piece of paper. Here is a picture of the layout:

 The materials I used where Easter themed paper I had and scraps of paper I had on hand. As well as some paper and felt flowers, button, Easter Ribbon, Easter stickers, and my Epiphany Crafts Round 25 tool. The next three pictures are of the stuff I used and two close ups of the layout:

   Hope you all liked my layout and that it gets your brain going to create your own! Have an awesome day and Happy Crafting!!

Cell Phone Leash

Hello Everyone,

   Good morning, hope you all are having a great day so far. Mine is going good, but yesterday I finally got tired of misplacing my stylus for my Gypsy, so for today's craft I made a Cell Phone Leash to put on my stylus. Here are two pictures of the front and the back:

   Here are the materials I used:
  •  Potpourri Basket Cartridge
  •  Epiphany Crafts Square 25 Tool
  •  Epiphany Crafts Square 25 Double sided Charm
  •  Cell Phone Leash
  •  Assorted Beads I had on hand
  •  Eye Pins

   I cut the Cricut guy at .73'' and I don't remember how small I cut the Dream and the Dream Shadow, but I wanna saw .95''.  The next pictures are of the materials and the pieces before I put them all together. The other two pictures are close ups of the charm and beads.

   Now that I have this Cell Phone Leash on my Stylus, I hope I don't misplace it anymore, lol. Hope you have a wonderful day and Happy Crafting!!

10 Things... Card

Hello Everyone!!

  Today I made a Missing you Card for my parents. It's pretty simple but I like it and keeping things simple is my style :) Here is a picture of the inside and front of the card:

   The materials I used are:
  •  Art Philosophy Cartridge
  •  Blue cardstock and Blue pattern paper
  •  Black twine
  •  Black Ink
  •  10 Things... stamp set from CTMH
  •  Black Sharpie

   I used my gypsy to cut out the card at 6' in height and the top layer the height was 3' I then placed the an image on top of it so it would cut out the window at 2.73' width. I made the inside pocket out of a 3' scalloped square and the tabs were cut at 4' in height, I used a rectangle for it. When I was putting it together I had to trim them a bit. I don't have number stamps, so I decorated the tabs myself. I didn't clean off my block so I got a little extra ink on my scalloped square, but now I know for next time. Now that it is all put together I can write something on each of the tabs. Here is a picture of the pieces before I put it together:

   I hope you all liked my card, and hope you all have a great day!! Happy Crafting!
