January's projects!

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!

This card will fold to mail!

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!!
