I've been busy! Anyone who knows me knows I am ALWAYS busy. My children and husband are a full time job! My crafting is another job that's pretty much fulltime. Luckily, I love my jobs. I just wish I had more time for all of them.
I got this idea from the Idea Room. I used an ancient frame I found in my husband's stuff. It was an antique gold color. I dry brushed it with white paint. It toned down the gold. I used a darker pink cardstock for the lettering. I found that hot gluing the actual letters and then placing them on the scrapbook paper was the easiest way to go. It was a challenge to use the cardstock to make letters but the three dimensional effect is great! Instead of crepe paper rosettes (oh, that's a story for another entry), I used a soft pink fleece to make a rosette (here's a tutorial for that: http://www.oursevendwarfs.com/2011/02/valentines-day-celebrated-with-burlap.html?utm_source=BP_recent). It was so easy and so sweet. I really like the way this turned out and appreciate the Idea Room's idea!
Jill and I are getting into making hair clippies. You may remember the Christmas tree clippies I made for one of our giveaways. Then we gave away some Valentine's Day clippies. http://www.oursevendwarfs.com/2011/01/weve-reached-over-100-facebook-friends.html
I've also started making cupcake clippies. Here's one I made for my friend Aubrey. She turned 2.
Here's the one I made for my daughter's second birthday. It matches her birthday shirt. I've got lots of clippie ideas! Stay tuned for some neat ones!
My friend Lesli made these treat bags, for her daughter's second birthday party. They were filled with Hershey's kisses. The kids (and parents) loved them! What a great idea!
Believe it or not, we still have many projects in the works. Stay tuned!
