Our current challenge over at The Paper Girls is all about babies! So I whipped up this card since I suddenly know several preggos and I know I will need this card eventually.
I'm in the middle of a craft room reorganization and I found these Authentique scraps. I'm not sure what project they were left over from but they were so cute I just had to put them on a baby card. Stamps are from Unity; clothesline is from Small Things Matter but I'm not sure what kit the sentiment is from.
I'm going to make up a few more of these in several colors to have on hand. :)
I was reading the Scrapbook Steals blog and one of their craft challenges was to make your own embellishments. Sounded fun so here's what I made!
I used two of my fave colors (coral and kraft) and a sheet of Teresa Collins' You are My Happy paper to make these tags and embellies. I die cut some shapes, stamped and fussy-cut images (Dutch Mustard Soup), and then layered them all up.
I needed a quick birthday card for a party my son's going to.
I used a couple Simon Says Stamp sets (Cupcake Party and Dude) and some scraps of paper to layer everything. I think it looks just masculine enough. And it's for a boy. Who will probably look at it for all of 0.6 seconds. So no stress. But it was still fun to make.
My son is such big Dr. Who fan so I couldn't help but make a couple projects for his birthday last week!
First was a Doctor-inspired birthday card. I made a similar card at my monthly card class so I used it as a pattern to make one that looked very Dr. Who like. You can't see it too well but I took brown cardstock and stamped a tweed-like stamp on it for texture.
Then I took a plain black journal I found and turned it into this TARDIS journal just like River Song carries. My son has been journaling in it every day since I gave it to him!
I designed a cut file and used lots of blue paint! I'll be making a second journal for my other son so stay tuned for a quick tutorial in a few days.
Another fun gift to include would be one of these pens-turned-sonic screwdrivers.
We've actually made very many of these and I was going to add some to my photo but ours are so heavily used that they are just too dirty for photos! It is an easy, inexpensive and kid-friendly craft. Follow her directions and use the pens she suggests and you'll have some very happy whovian kiddos. Even if you are not Dr. Who fans you can still make Harry Potter wands or Star Wars light sabers maybe!
