Recently I found this dirty and dingy IKEA Greenhouse at a thrift store for a couple of bucks. I could see it had a lot of potential it just needs some TLC.
So I took it home, washed it up and covered most of it with solid gold and pale pink and gold stripedÂ Washi Tape. I covered the handles at the top with Sisal Rope.
Here are the results – I am beyond thrilled!
Every year I try to whip up some Valentines Day cards for the local shops. Even though the full force greeting card part of my business is now closed, I still love to make cards and produce them just for a choice few retailers. These four Valentines Day cards are available for only a few weeks of February 2013. They can be found at MADE in Central Phoenix. These are created using the YUDU screen-printer, Japanese Washi Tape and Markers. The bottom on is a red fabric jewelry bag with paper tickets inside.
For this Halloween card I used a pumpkin orange card stock for the main card. I cut the hunted house using the Cricut and the Pumpkin Carving cartridge out of black vinyl. I hand cut the grave yard below out of the same black vinyl. The poke-a-dot stripe at the bottom is Japanese Washi Tape. Finally, I attached a plastic skeleton, with glue,Â that I picked up at a party supply store. Happy Halloween!
Do you have a post Labor Day BBQ mess to clean up? Don’t throw those soda cans out. Cut them up and make thank you notes for your guests. Read all about it at my post over at Phoenix New Times Jackalope Ranch: A Thrifty Thank You
Here are some additional designs I created using a can of Vixen brand energy drink and Washi tape.
I thought I would share a couple of recent card designs I created. The two thank yous were in fact thank you notes and the bird card was part of a SWAP for Creative Escape for August 2010.
The state bird of AZ card was made using the 50 States Cartridge with my Cricut and the bird shape was cut from burnt umber cricut sticker vinyl and the AZ state shape was cut from Bazzill card stock.Â The long No. 10 thank you was made by cutting the “thank you” out on my Cricut and the card stock was again Bazill, the flag paper was a scrap I had laying around and the tape is Japanese Washi Tape. For the pink card I cut a “thanks” again out with my Cricut, used Japanese Washi Tape, a Sharpie marker, a simple thank you stamp that I have had forever, I went around the “thanks” with a white out pen and then applied with Diamond Glaze. I finished it off by adding a foam craft heart and a hot rock.
Go make some cards now! xoxo Happy crafting Lovely Lula
