Saturday's Crop

This past Saturday, I had the pleasure of doing some much needed cropping, or Scrap Therapy. I was able to do a one page layout, a card, and use a friend's Cricut Machine to cut some titles for a project I am working on. More about that to come. Today, I just want to share the card and page I completed.

I made a thank you card with some scraps from a Bo Bunny project I am working on. It is a tri-fold six by twelve piece of navy card stock. I sanded the edges of it as well as some pieces of paper to adhere to the card.  I also used the Cricut to cut out the words "Thank You" for the front. I gave the card to its recipient today and she loved it!

To make the 12 x 12 layout you see below, I used the paper kit Tinkering by Close to My Heart. This particular kit has cute robots, screws, and bolts. I used one, but as a "sun" for a more summer themed page. Every time I crop, I realize how many irons I have on the fire. I hope to crank out quite a bit in the coming weeks. I can't wait to share these projects with you.

Teacher gift for back to school

I found some clearance items this past weekend and decided to put together a teacher gift. They were notepads, a magnetic frame, buttons, and stickers all in a Cat in The Hat theme. I decided to use one of the coffee cans that I just can't bear to throw away, as my hat. The process was pretty simple.

My CTMH Products Came In!

I actually got these last Thursday, but with a birthday party at my house this past weekend, I didn't get a chance to share. I got a great deal on some really nice paper and stickers from the Close to My Heart Customer Appreciation Sale. I have pictured here everything I got, most of it 50% off the normal price.

Party décor for less

Have you been in party supply stores lately? Even with their store wide clearance sales and great deals in bulk, you can easily spend 30 to 80 bucks on supplies alone for a small party of 8 children.
