October is flying by!

October is always a busy month for me. This month, in addition to 6 birthdays. Anniversaries and Halloween, we did some traveling and had 3 groups of guests. In between all the excitement, I have been crafting some really cute things. Take this anniversary card I made for my sister and her husband. I love the Tuxedo design and it came out so elegant in this black, gold and ivory color scheme.

I was so happy with it, I decided to do a Halloween card in the same design. It makes a really cute, dimensional card and is a completely different look than the anniversary card.

I also love the idea of a box for these cards. Because of the depth of the card with the flowers or other embellishments, you really need a box or at least an envelo-box for them. This seemed to me the best choice.

Then there is my take on the flower box card for my Grandson's birthday. I also did a cute gift card holder, because at 14 it is hard to figure out just what to get him! 

Now I am embroidering 8 sweatshirts for a wedding party and then I will be getting started on this year's Christmas Cards. Have you started yours yet?

What a busy month!
This month is just flying by. I have been working on cards and painting some pumpkins. I love the MacKenzie Childs pumpkins so I thought I would use them as inspiration and create my own take on them as well as try a couple different things. I still like the black with gold glitter one (I think I need to add a clear shiny coat), but I am in the process of repainting another one. The leaves were cut from outdoor upholstery material, outlined with twine and then coated with glitter. I also wrapped the stems with twin and coated with glitter. Updated with picture of the final pumpkins.
I have a brief video on how I painted the black and white pumpkins.

I have done a few more little pumpkins to add to my collection. I also used my Cricut to cut the checkerboard pattern to place on the charger in this picture. I need to pick up 3 more at Hobby Lobby and paint the edges and add the vinyl to complete my fall table.

I am so happy that my Advent Calendars are done. It took some time 

to get the design right so it is sturdy enough to last from year to year.

Looking Forward to the Holidays

Another week has passed and I will admit that I have started thinking about the holiday season and what crafts I will be creating. I currently have done a Christmas themed stationery box and am working on an Advent Calendar.

Crafting in August

When you start the day, how do you decide on what to create next?

I do so many different crafts and often everyday brings a new project. This week I will complete the cards for I need to send out for September. Then I will do the samples for the designs I have been working on to release in September and October. 

My next project is another quilt. This one is for my sister and I am very excited about the pattern. I will be videoing and creating some detailed instructions for this quilt. Be sure to follow along as this should be a very pretty quilt.

What are you working on? Next month the focus will shift to Christmas preparations, gifts, decorations, cards, etc.

Cricut Maker Accessory Box

I was so excited to create this box for my cutting and scoring blades. It is cut from 2 mm thick chipboard cut by my Cricut Maker and then assembled, painted and decorated. The drawer is a great place for the cap for the knife blade, extra blades and maybe a few M&M's. 

Keep watch for more fun and interesting projects as well as tips and tricks for creating your own masterpieces!
