The weekend before Christmas I did a workshop with Free Arts tween and teen girls. We worked with the ideal of visual art memory journals. Because it is time to think about New Year’s Crafts, Journals and logging events and activities. What will you keep note of, of this past year?  I created a book with the New Year in mind. I will use this as a journaling book for the next few weeks as I write and doodle about 2011.

I used my Cuttlebug and the Clockworks Embossing Folders to pull the details of this journaling book together. Once it is complete I will bind it on my YourStory. Here’s to the New Year.

Happy crafting xoxo

Summer time in Arizona is really like January in Minnesota, only brown instead of white. We lack living vegetation and long for flowers, which we’ll have to wait until February to see. So I decided to use the Flower Shoppe Cartridge to create a Felt Bouquet. These are also all pins so they have a dual purpose! I used my Cricut to cut card stock to use as templates to cut out the felt pieces. I also used my Cuttlebug and some of the flower dies to cut out the felt flower shapes. Once I glued all the felt pieces together with Tacky Glue, I attached vintage buttons and then glued pin backs to all of the flowers. They are ready to wear or gift.

I  created a copper paper bracelet using my Cricut and the Paper Lace 2 cart and the new Cuttlebug embossing folder called: Mary Ann. The bracelet part of this was created using a recycled roll of packing tape. Hey it makes a perfect bangle!

I created a wall hanging box for my daughters teacher as an end of the year thank you. It is a simple wooden box, painted red. The cooper is embossed on the Cuttlebug using the Musical Flourish embossing folder. I glued down a piece of fabric and the thanks is cut out of yellow wool felt also on the Cuttlebug.  The flourish and the flowers were cut on the Cricut using the Straight From The Nest cartridge.  Glue it all down and you have the perfect gift to say thanks!

Mothers Day fashion photo album for Grandma.

Using both my Cricut and my Cuttlebug mixed together I created a fashionable photo album as a gift for my mom. I will fill it with photos of the grand kids in time for Mother’s Day. The copper foil is embossed on with Cuttlebug using the Mary Ann embossing folder. The butterfly is cut on the Cricut using the Paper Lace cart and then embossed. The bling is added by using by Imaginisce irock and hot rocks.

Happy crafting xoxo
