What inspires you?

My three year old came to me and said,"I want Halloween outside, I want candy." "I want a witch outside, I want bones outside. Mommy I want Pumpkins outside." He's too cute!! 
His love for Halloween inspired me to make this Monster Halloween Card.

What inspires you?

Butterfly Project

Hello All, Today I'm working on Butterfly Embellishments, just one of the new things you can look forward to in my shop. Here's just one example of how you can get creative with them:

After making the Butterfly cutouts on pink damask paper, I glittered parts of the damask design with red glitter. After drying time I then bent the wings slightly of each butterfly & adhered each backing with glue dots (the glue dots are not messy & easy to remove) It only takes seconds to put these up. These ones were used on a door but they can be put on walls, mirrors etc. They would make excellent nursery decor. :)

It's Sew Easy!!!

Here is my first project with the Sew Easy Tool by We R Memory Keepers. It's a really cheap tool to get & super easy to use & not to mention very compact. I highly recommend it. You can purchase it here & also check out the demo video. We R Memory Keepers - Sew Easy

I chose the Zig Zag pattern for this Owl Card. 
First I took green card stock, measured it & cut it according to the length of the card. You can use the Sew Easy Tool free hand but I recommend to lay down a ruler to get your line straight. It makes it faster & easier to use it that way so you don't have to worry about any re-dos!! After doing my slice before I started with my thread I went back & scalloped the edges of the paper & then I proceeded with the thread. The button at the end is also attached with thread. Finally I put the adhesive on the back & attached it to my card. 

I think it adds a lot of character so definitely check it out. If you have one already I'd love to see your projects & hear what you think about the Tool.
