Summer is almost here... isn't it?
We've been so busy this 2014 New Year, the boys are doing well, active with all their Sports, Robotics and Cub/Boy Scout events. I am looking forward to the Summer when we can relax at the campground! I've done a little crafting here and there, I really need to get off the computer more (Facebook & Pinterest) and get to playing with paper more often! Here are some crafts I don't think I've blogged yet.
I made 16 of these little campfire centerpieces for our Cub Scouting Blue & Gold Banquet. It has become a tradition, I made them for the tables and then the Webelos 2 Scouts/Parents may take one home with them as a thank you for being a part of our Pack!
I got a great deal on a huge box of 2x3 size magnets at a Thrift Store in Big Lake last year. It is a great project to use up scraps of patterned paper and misc. stickers and rub-ons!
Here is a "chevron" themed ATC Card I created for an online swap on a stamping message board. I love making these little masterpieces.
These are a bit more time consuming but really make a big statement I think. These are mini clipboards out of regular old drink coasters you get at restaurants/bars. Cut paper to size or find the Lifestyle crafts square nesting dies. I added half of a regular post it note pad, a binder clip with some washi tape on it and tied a pretty ribbon on top. I sanded the edges of the paper once I adhered it to the coaster. I like the 'worn' or 'faded' look on my projects.
Here are some more magnets using up some scrap patterned paper and stickers. On this set I dabbed some acrylic paint on the edges to make it stand out a bit more!
I was a in secret sister swap online and created these mini cards. I believe I got the package of envelopes at Joann's and just used patterned paper and stickers for the front of the card.
This ATC was for a Valentine "Love" swap. I have a lot going on here, but I like the look. The lips are a stamp and so is the "Love Beyond Measure" message. The pink hearts, two people holding hands and XOXOXO are Washi Tapes! Oh how I do love those Washi Tapes, I am a little obsessed with them!
