Welcome back, my dear friends! I hope you all had a great week and have enjoyed the last few weeks of summer. Sit back and enjoy the projects that I have to share with you today – I hope they will get those creative minds of yours going, and that you have some enjoyable crafting time this weekend.
In just a couple of months the holidays will be rolling in, can you even believe it?! There is nothing better than giving the gift of memories all wrapped up in an adorable mini album. This is one of those darling mini albums that you can add so many photos and memories to.
Isn’t it funny how one piece of scrap paper can inspire an entire project? Today Jess Mutty shows us how she created this beautiful mini album using a plethora of beautiful embellishments from Maya Road. Click here and I will take you over to see the interior pages of this darling album, and for step-by-step instructions and links to the products used. You are going to love all of the layers and pockets!
I hope you get inspired today to send out one of your beautiful handmade creations in the form of a lovely card. They are so much fun to make and such a joy to receive. It is a great way of letting a special person in your life know just how much you care. Who wouldn’t love to receive a fun surprise in the mail?
This bright whimsical card was created by the very talented Romy Veul. The colors are rich and yet subtle; what a cheerful card! Romy used several fun die cuts from Sizzix including the Bigz Die – Birds. Click here to see how Romy created her priceless card.
I really love the detail on the background and how it shows off the stamping with some texture in the grassy area. The 3-D look makes it feel as if you were standing right in front of that clothesline. When creating a project, you can’t go wrong using die cuts with matching stamps. Let’s pop on over to Kittie Kraft where you will find step-by-step instructions along with all of the products you will need. What a great card for a special baby!
Are you looking for a fun little gift to hand out through the holidays? I am sure your loved ones will be excited to receive some of your handmade treasures. Creating beautiful things for those special people in our lives is a true blessing. They will never forget how creative you are!
Alice Golden will show you different techniques using DecoFoil. There are so many creative ways to apply foil to your crafting. Foiling is very trendy right now and there are many different methods for using it on both paper and fabric. Click here and I will take you over to see how Alice created her sensational tags. These darling tags can add a little shine on so many different types of gifts.
Having a party? These are the perfect individual desserts that will be sure to put a smile on your guests’ faces. The best thing about these yummy little cakes is that you can make them ahead of time. They will stay fresh and moist for a couple of days; just wrap them and store in an airtight container. Glaze them with the yummy chocolate the day you are serving them.
The mini almond pound cakes look so attractive and will be an impressive dessert at your party. Click here so you can make a copy of the recipe and ingredients; this is a recipe you don’t want to miss out on.
I hope you have enjoyed today’s projects and that you have been inspired to begin your next project. I’m looking forward to sharing some more fun things with you next Saturday. Have a great week!
