CrAfTy FuNnEsS

Just wanted to spend some time sharing some fun things I have made over the last few weeks.

One of the challenges for National Scrapbook Day from CropChocolate and Oh My Crafts was to make something with an "accordian" feature included. Oh My Crafts merged with so everything about the projects has a "wedding" theme. I figured I would stick with the theme and make something that would be fun to give as a gift.

One of the things I loved about doing this project was making a "diamond ring". I made it from craft wire, a 3-D glue dot and crystal gems. I think it turned out so nice!


Another challenge we were given was to make something out of a kiss shaped piece of wood. This is for the chance to win a Silhouette Cameo which I would LOVE to have!!! Anyways, I spent a few days thinking about what I wanted to do. My goal was to make it look like a delicious, gooey piece of chocolate in a classic looking package. Although I had a few oopsies, I think it turned out fantastic!!! Man, I sure hope I win!!! LOL!!!

I really wanted some form of a tag on it so I went searching through all of my goodies and couldn't believe what I found! A little, round sticker that says "Simply Irresistible". TA DA!!! Perfect!!!!!!



Ten to fifteen years ago, I went on a clipart "mission". Any clipart that I could find that was cute and fun, I had to have! So, a friend of mine had given me some of her discs that had a GRUNDLE of pics on them and I went nuts!

Although I'm not really outdoorsy, I love outdoorsy pics. Moose are some of my favorite animals to create around. 

I'm trying out some new techniques (to me) and tried my hand at blending. CC's focus groups was asked to do some fussy cutting on our next challenge for June. Me?? Fussy Cutting?? Yeah, right! After totally destroying my first project, I remembered my stash of moose clipart. I broke it out and went to town. Blending....fussy cutting....and VIOLA!'s not the best but I love him!!!


Last project to be posted today is one that was going to be for the NSD challenge using Making Memories Bravissimo line. After finishing this project, I decided not to enter it. There is something about it that really stirred something in me. Something was telling me to give it to a sweet friend of mine for her birthday. So, once everything was dry, I wrapped it up gently, placed it in a gift bag and gave it to her the next day. Her reaction just about made me cry! I knew deep down inside she would love it!!!

This is a dress form that I painted. The dress is made from tissue paper with a layer of scrapbook paper as an outer part of the skirt. It really was fun to make and I'm so happy my friend liked it!!!

Ok, it's late and I need sleep. Talk to you all later!!!
