Circus Elephant Wall Art

I love how this came out!  I am decorating the baby's nursery in a vintage circus theme.   I used my Silhouette cutter and papers from Jenni Bowlin's October papercrafting kit to get this done.  This is the first of three...I hope to tackle the other two soon!

The Home Decor Challenge

I love these postcard kits from Crafty Secrets!!  I like that you have all the coordinating materials in one place, and then you're free to embellish them any way you want!  I mailed these to two dear friends and they were both so tickled to receive them!  One hung hers in her kitchen (and complains that no one has cleaned it for her!) and the other hung hers over her desk.

The Gift Card Holder Challenge

I really have fun making these pocket cards...the inserts can be personalized with pictures, messages, doodles, etc!  I made these with gift cards in mind.  I can write a message on the lined insert, and attach the gift card to the second insert that goes in the back pocket!

The Cards Set Challenge

I had sooo much fun making this set!  I made it with my niece in mind...she has a birthday this month and I thought a tween might like a fun, shiny set of cards.  I've had these micro beads for ages and have been looking for a use for them!  The pictures don't capture how pretty these cards really are, and I will see if I can get some better pics this weekend and update.

Baby Boy Photo Pockets

Rather than just handing my mom and my in-laws our most recent ultrasound pictures, I made these little photo pockets to show off our newest little man.  I had once purchased a mini-scrapbook made entirely of folded brown paper bags and have wanted to copy the idea.  So I cut off the end of the bag, folded it to create two pockets, and then made the inserts.  I'm tickled with the way they came out, and the recipients loved the gift of photos!

Hot Air Balloon Re-imagined

I have really enjoyed the recent trend involving hot air balloons in crafts, but I don't have any hot air balloon stamps.  I started looking at my Tim Holtz fragments and thought that turned upside down they could look like hot air balloons!  Serendipity!  I embossed some charms with red embossing powder to create the little baskets under the balloons.   I like how these tags came out!

As luck would have it, the Tuesday Trigger incorporates the colors I chose for my tags.  I am loving this unexpected color combination (it's the one I've chosen for baby's nursery) and it's exciting to see it popping up in so many places!
