Paper Crafts are Great!

Yes!!  I have it all done. 

The Recipe Box with Sunflowers in the colors that my dear oldest daughter has in her Kitchen. Took a little thinking on manipulating papers with the correct color of sunflowers to nearly match her other deco in her beautiful kitchen. I think that's what makes my 
Close To My Heart Card stock, Stamp sets, and Inks amazing. 
Originally, I looked for papers that I might use with Sunflowers already on them 
with other coordinating papers, But no luck. The colors all off or card stock/papers not right for what I needed. So I designed my own texture and background papers. 
Also, Our May Stamp of the Month went perfect for what I needed. 
The Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge from Close to My Heart 
was a bonus in getting the shapes I needed as well.

My Finished Project...

Another Peak….

Here’s a quick peak at the progress of the

Recipe box...You can click on the photos

to see notes from the previous post and this one. 

This has been fun inventing the papers

for the base and now shading in the Sunflowers.

So far I am loving it.

Check out the Workshop Tab above for

updates on upcoming Events.

Have a great Memorial Weekend.

Sneaky Peaky at my Latest Project

I have a little free time this week and got to thinking about upcoming crafts I need to work on. With Birthdays around the corner I remembered the Recipe box I want to make for my oldest daughter. I grab all my needed supplies look around for sunflower stuff (her Kitchen Theme), paper colors, inks and all. As I am pooling my stuff together, I realize her colors are mainly Red and Black in her kitchen. My yellow and blue B&T’s (background & texture papers) will not work. No sunflowers with black and Red back ground…So, now I am making my own B&T’s…So cool & easy when the inks and papers coordinate so well together from Close To My Heart. The May Stamp of the Month was made just for my project (not really…but I am going with that). Here’s a sneak peak..Hopefully it will be done this weekend and I can post the finished design.

You will have to excuse the pics...They are from my Iphone..Hubby has Camera with him.

Come back for final look in a few days.
Have a Happy Crafty Day!!  Sandra V.
