Summer cards!

Hello everyone. I hope you are having a great week so far! Had to get out my Cri-kits gel pens today and I made some Summer cards . I used the Gypsy for this project. These cards were easy to make. I like how the gel pens draws on card stock:) I used the Cricut Life is a Beach cart to draw the Title Words on card stock and I cut out the Toucan and Lizard and layered them over the title Words. Toucan is on page 49 and the lizard is on page 56. The lizard card can be a invitation to a pool party or a beach party:)

To draw the Title word. I used the Reg & Neon black gel pen on lizard card and blue on Toucan card. I'm linking this to Getting Cricky Simple Sunday Challenge to use pens on project. I know I already linked one, but this is a fun challenge. I love to use these gel pens and show off my projects;) These cards are A2 size 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 in.

Thanks everyone for stopping by and looking. Have a wonderful week:)

Patriotic Card!

Here a quick card I made. I had some left over scraps of red and blue material and I cut some hearts out with my scissors for this card. I embossed the card with Cuttlebug (Swiss Dots) folder. I added some red, white and blue ribbon and stamped USA and FREEDOM on ribbon:) I'm finished with making Patriotic projects. This is the last one for this year.

I used the Cri-kits gel pens to color around hearts. Here is a link to all the projects I created with these awesome pens.

Wire cuff earrings:)

Hello everyone! I hope you had a great weekend and you are having a good Monday. We had a good weekend here. My family went to the beach and fishing this weekend. My daughter had so much fun at the beach:) I been playing around with my craft wire and beads today and I created these cute wire cuff earrings. This is my own wire pattern for these cuff on earrings! I think they turned out fabulous.

I made a pair for myself and my daughter. I used pearls on my daughter cuff earrings. She loved them, because she doesn't have pierced ears. I will be making a lot of these. Here how they look on my ear.

Have a wonderful day and thank you for stopping by and taking a look:)

Patriotic ribbon bracelets!!

Hello everyone. I hope you are having a great Thursday! It's very rainy and gloomy here. I made some of these patriotic ribbon bracelets last year in a different patriotic ribbon and gave them out at the 4Th Of July cookout. My daughter wanted me to make more of them for this year. I will be giving these out at this years cook out. I made them in size 7 in and 8 in and some small bracelets for the little children. This photo is my daughter showing off the bracelets on her wrist.

I used the i rock tool to set the silver gems on the red, white and blue bracelets. I've been using that tool a lot lately. Great tool to have for my projects:)

Here the Supplies and tool I used to make these bracelets. I purchased the eyelet and snap plier tool at Micheal's and ribbon too. These tool is a great tool to own. I used it on all my crafts. I love it:) The snaps I purchased at Walmart. I cut pieces of ribbon 7 in and 8 in long to make bracelets. I made some smaller for the children too. I applied clear finger nail polish to the ends of cut ribbons to keep it from fraying apart. All that matters it keeps it from fraying apart. Set the snaps in ribbon where you want them and you have a snap bracelet. This tool is easy to use. These make great gifts to give out and they can be made in any color ribbon you like;) I like these ribbon bracelets better then the plastic ones they are selling in the stores. I hope you all like this idea and you make some too:) Let me know what you think about it!

Patriotic wreath!!

Hello everyone! I hope you are well and you are having a great day. I had a request for a Patriotic wreath and this is what I came up with. I think it looks great:) The star garland, bow, wreath and red, white and blue raffia was purchased at $1.00 Tree store. Red, white and blue ribbon tied at top of wreath was purchased at Micheal's.

To make these flower I used the Knifty knitter flower loom. I made the flowers with the red, white and blue raffia. Here is the video on how I made the flower.

I wrapped the star garland around the wreath. This garland has a great sparkle to it:) Hard to believe the star garland cost only $1.00. I hope you are inspired by my creations and you become a follower of my blog. If you become a follower you can keep up with all my handmade creations :)

A beautiful tag!

Hello all my friends. I hope you are doing great and you are enjoying your day. Here is a religious tag I made. I bought the Mary stickers at the Dollar Tree Store. When I seen these stickers I knew I wanted to make tags and laminated bookmarks with them. I bought two packs of them. One pack is all Mary and the other pack is all Jesus sticker. This tag of Mary is so beautiful! This is a 4 3/4" x 2 3/8" shipping tag. I bought them at the Office store and adhered pattern paper over the tag. I won the pattern paper from my blog friend Terry  I don't know the name of pattern paper. I punched holes around tag and put pink ribbon through holes. I set a eyelet in tag hole at top. I used pink stickle around the Mary sticker.

I used pink lace to make flower and put a green gem in middle of flower. I seen this lace flower idea on Terry's blog. Here is a close up of lace flower.

Thanks for stopping by and looking. Have a great week:)
