I was in my craft room all day today, working on a special project.
Look, I even used my Cricut ;)
Wayne and my girls bought me this one about 2 or 3 Mother's Days ago and I may have used it 3 times.
I honestly forgot how to turn it on and called my daughter over, lol. I finally figured it out ;)
I have had the smaller Cricut since when it had first come out and know how to use that one, but this one has so many buttons, lol.
I didn't use this bright yellow paper for my project, it was just a practice cut.
I guess I didn't have my setting correct as it didn't cut anything first time around, lol,
If you know me then you know I like to make my own embellishments.
Sometimes I wonder why I even buy embellishments, lol.
I like to ink the edges of my punched out flowers. Some may think it is a waste of time (actually a friend or two of mine told me so) but I like the small details.
See how the ink gives the flowers some dimension :)
I couldn't find (or used them all) my adhesive pearls, so I used liquid pearls for the centres of my flowers.
That is After I formed them in the palm of my hand.
Again some handmade embellishments :)
I have made these before, and may have shared them on here, but if not, here you go ;)
I took some toothpicks and painted them grey.
I then punched out some hearts and inked the card stock and adhered one on each side of the toothpicks…like a toothpick sandwich ;)
Lastly I added some sparkles to the hearts :)
I had a blast in my craft room today.
I usually don't spend anytime in there during the weekend, as I spend the weekends with Wayne and my girls (when my girls are around ;)
But I was on a bit of a time crunch…all my fault, so I spent most of my day down there.
I will share my project in a couple of days.
As it is for my niece's baby shower, which is tomorrow :)
I hope you all had a very creative Saturday :)
