Hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas!
Santa brought me an assortment of crafty things...and I was spoiled by friends and family too!
I can finally share a few of the projects I've been working on over the last couple of months.
This was a tray for my DIL Steph. The tray is from 7 Gypsies. They do make trays in a variety of shapes. She spent time with her sister and family this summer so wanted to make a collage of some of the pictures I thought were great.
I inked the edge of each picture with Tim Holtz Vintage Distress Ink to give it that aged look. I used the Cricut cartridge Wall Decor for "Family", the hearts and the tree.
The flowers are made using "Heartfelt Creation" stamps and dies.
I dyed the lace with the Vintage ink and then with a needle and thread used a running stitch to gather the lace to make the flower. I actually went to many stores to try and find something like this and ended up making my own which I was pretty happy with. About a week after I completed the project I stopped in at a new craft store (new to me) and as soon as I walked in the door they had exactly one like this hanging on the wall.
January 1st I'm participating in a Blog Hop. All projects will be Cricut related. I've been working on it now for 3 or 4 days and will have it ready in time. If I don't post before then I hope you will stop by on New Year to have a peak and check out some of the other crafty gals too!
I actually couldn't sleep cause ideas are floating around in my head. Off to see if I can create the project like the vision I had. Sometimes the two don't line up!
Have a good day!
