Happy Weekend! It is Saturday today and I have been playing last night and this morning at using Heat N' Bond to make fabric die cuts so I could participate in the Make it Monday Challenge #130
over at Nichole Heady's Blog "Capture the Moment" for Papertrey Ink.
I had my lovely tea-stained fabric all ready to be used from Stamp-A-Faire thanks to a lovely tutorial I watched from Melissa Phillips. I made several different die cuts with the fabric and ended up using a cupcake die cut on the front of a card to make a birthday ensemble. Here is what I came up with:
The tea-stained fabric was die-cut and then attached to the card base made with Papertrey Ink's Shape-Up Series Cupcake Die Collection. I then added some book-paper roses, paper and crocheted doily pieces, some leaves, buttons, floss, diecut border and a tag to finish it off.
Next I worked on altering a burlap bag and making a small envelope to hold either a pair of earrings or a gift card for one of my sisters birthdays in the coming months.
I used a lot of the same items and also created a double-layered tag with a flower button, floss bow, and key charms on the floss strands to decorate them up a bit. The base layer is some lovely cream colored felt which I diecut with a scalloped rectangle die.
And finally to insert in the bag the little envelope:
Well that is it for me for crafting today. It has been a busy week and we are off to the school picnic this evening at a local park to welcome everyone back to school. Tim made it through the first 1/2 week of 3rd Grade and so did I! :) LOL! Here are some pictures of his first day taken on our front porch right before we left Wednesday morning:
He surely is the light of my life and I am so proud of him!!!! I forgot to make him his first day of school card for his lunch box so I ran downstairs and made this in less than a minute...you can tell too...but it is the thought that counts! :)
Thanks for visiting my little blog! Happy Crafting and Back-to-School time!
