I have been working on making shadow boxes with funny sayings! I thought this one was a hoot!
You can see the dies I used to decorate this frame. I love Sam from Mixed Up Crafts. She
has a fabulous video tutorial that explains how to make this Shadow Box Frame. It is a 6 x 6 frame and just the right size for my project. You can find her video here-
I saw a similar card to the card above on Pinterest. It was made with a bunch a dies that I
couldn't afford so I thought I would try and recreate it with my Cricut. I thought it came out pretty good.
I used these adorable bear stamps from My Favorite Things! I just love these guys!
I am going to use this card for my Brother-in-laws birthday...shhh... don't tell.
I hope he likes my birthday sentiment!
But I thought the card was a little small. It does fit nicely into a regular envelope but I
think I like my cards just a little larger.
So I used my Cricut and enlarged it by about 1/2 inch. I really like the extra space to
add more to decorate. Lately, I have been in love with Gnomes, all things Gnomes!!
Here are a couple of pictures of my Gnome card. I still need to add a sentiment to the front and
to the back. But I wanted to show you how much room you have to add all kinds of embellishments.
So these are the projects I have been working on so far for January. Feels good to be
crafting again. After being sick with Co-Vid I wasn't sure when I would feel up to working on my projects. But I am back and feeling great. I have been playing golf too! We are looking forward to having my sister and her husband come to visit us next week! I am hoping the weather will be good so we can plan all kinds of out door activities and get into all kinds of trouble!! Should be fun!!
Hope everyone stays healthy!!
