Breguin

Another monster from the Edward's Crochet Imaginarium by Kerry Lord pattern book. This one was started by my sister who did the body, arms, legs and ears.  So really all I had to do was the antlers, eyes, muzzle and tail.  He's a brother to Cauli and they will both be loved by brothers too. For his name, I wrote down all that I thought he was ... penguin, deer, bunny, dragon... then used letters from each to create the name.

Merry & Bright Ornament Kit

I do enjoy using non-traditional colors for holiday cards such as pink and blue.  I think that these non-traditional colors are starting to get traditional... at least in our house.  LOL  Here's a card I created using the layout from the Merry & Bright Ornament Kit from Queen and Company.

Merry & Bright Ornament Kit

Here's another card I created using the Merry & Bright Ornament Kit from Queen and Company.  This is one of the ideas from their shop and same layout.


I'm not sure how the solid part of the ornament was done but I thought it was the center of the die.  However, I think it was another piece of paper that was cut out for the backing since mine has a gap and theirs doesn't.  I'm wondering what I can do to hide it so if you have any ideas... please comment!

Merry & Bright Ornament Kit

How about a pink and red holiday card? I think by adding a little silver and the shape of the ornaments help make it Christmas card instead of Valentines... I hope.  LOL  This is created using the Merry & Bright Ornament Kit from Queen and Company.

I also used the Birthday Dots Stencil to add texture to the white background.

Shoot for the Moon

My my project today, I'm using Shoot for the Moon chipboard embellishments from Make it Crafty. I attempted to do some water coloring on the background with my Spectrum Aqua markers.  However, the paper beaded up so badly that I don't think it turned out well.  But I used my fingers and some water to smooth it out and salvage what I could.  Then the chipboard was painted and placed on top - it didn't turn out so bad.  This is in the same style as the store samples for this product.
