Out of the Ordinary

Okay, so it isn't made out of paper, but I am SO excited about my find the other night!!  While at Walmart doing my grocery shopping I walked past the crafting aisles and a clearance tag caught my eye.  I have been wanting one of these for the longest time, and so I just had to have it!!  For only $40, I came home with this!!

So, of course I had to try it out.  I have been wanted to make this for a while now, and by no means am I a any good at using a sewing machine, but it turned out okay!  I also just used material I had (which isn't much!).  I am going to make another once I find some more material.  These will be great for coloring in the car on our road trip this summer!

Superhero Word Book

I made this book a year and a half ago for a friend of mine who wanted a superhero themed baby room.  I had a lot of fun making it!!  I used design studio and George to create and cut everything in this book.  Some of the designs were made for me from some awesome girls on the Cricut Message board, but it has been so long now, I don't remember who it was !!  A few images were also computer generated and then cut out freehand. Book was bound using the bind-it-all.  I also finished it off with some primary colored ribbon tied to the binding (but forgot to take a final picture).

Another LO from Gatlinburg. I used the DCWV Green stack again with this LO. Mickey Mouse Font was used for the title and Storybook was used for the butterfly. The journaling box edge is a Martha Stewart edge punch.


This LO sat on my desk for a few weeks while I finished up making baby books, mom's day gifts, and teacher gifts. I used the DCWV Blossoms and Butterflies stack for the patterned paper. Title is made with the Mickey Mouse Font and flowers are Primas.

Mother's Day

So I didn't do a traditional mom's day gift this year. I had been trying to decide how I wanted to make one of these birthday reminder books since I heard my mom mention she needed something like this months ago. This is what I came up with (not all pages shown). I used the Green Stack by DCWV (which I love!) and Lyrical Letters for the fonts. The owl on the front cover came from Storybook. All cuts were designed in design studio before cutting.

Teacher Appreciation

So I put it off and put it off. I had another idea that fell through (because I bought the wrong materials), so here is what I threw together at the last minute for Cloe's teacher for teacher appreciation! The sign says "It's Teacher Appreciation Week! Why not milk it?" That was computer generated and glued onto a sign from the Storybook Cartridge. The cow is from Paper Dolls. You can't tell, but I also etched the teacher's name on the jar and added a butterfly at the request of Cloe.

Coming Soon!

So I haven't had much time to craft recently. We had some serious flooding here in Middle Tennessee and it has been a bit hectic around here. We were lucky and did not suffer much damage, thankfully!!

Anyway, I got in my craft room today and got a last minute teacher's appreciation gift made and I have been working on another project that I can't post just yet. So, be on the lookout in the next few days for a few new projects!
