Travels

At Mel’s request, I’m posting the finished product here that I blogged about last time with my Wicker Basket Tutorial.  It was a card for my grandparent’s sixtieth wedding anniversary! I enjoyed our visit to celebrate their anniversary so much and I took lots of pictures! SO, I have decided that I’m going to make an album for them and give it to them at Christmas.  I don’t want to post all the LOs here (I hope you don’t mind), but you can see my progress thus far here. I’ve been pretty busy with that particular project and all my preparation for work in the fall, so I haven’t had a whole lot of time to blog (or visit).  I hope to remedy the latter soon!  Thanks for reading/looking!

Summer’s Here!

And with it…my return to crafting! 🙂

I’ve been getting back into quilling and will be excited to share my projects here. I also plan to keep posting at Going Green Crafters and Artists (I’ve just put up a post on using die cut negatives).  Here are a few recent Thank You cards I’ve made for my annual music charity walk.

Made from scrap stash except for scalloped green cardstock (Paper Source). PP is Basic Grey Wisteria Collection.

PP is from BasicGrey’s June Bug collection, mounted on Bazzil “Dotted Swiss” (Phoenix).

Die cut scraps on Bazzil Dotted Swiss (White)

It doesn’t show up in the photo, but I applied Pearl Glimmer Mist to the flowers on the left and right (not the center–I forgot, lol).  The scallop squares are a die cut (Provo/Cuttlebug), and I used ribbon from my stash. Cardstock is Bazzil Dotted Swiss (White).

THANKS FOR LOOKING!

TA-DAs

  • I’ll include THIS because it is a paper craft, kinda.
  • I also managed this little card for some friends who are getting married on Saturday. I quilled the flowers and the pp is BasicGrey’s Wisteria line:

  • I also managed an anniversary card for my husband (we celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary with a lovely day and a half in the Berkshires…Tanglewood, Hancock Shaker Village (my new favorite place) and the Norman Rockwell Museum) but I wasn’t absolutely thrilled with the results. The pp is BasicGrey’s Wisteria line, the swirl stamps are Rhonna Farrer, and the letterpress tag is from Paper Source.

Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to do Christine’s red, white and blue challenge.

TO-DOs:

I’ll be surprised if I get any crafting done in the next 10 days because I am going on VACATION!  To the other side of the country, in fact. 🙂 I’m very thrilled about this, but will miss crafting while I’m gone..especially since Amy’s challenge for this week is so enticing:

…pull something out of your “someday” file and give it a try. Always wanted to try a certain technique? Been thinking about experimenting with a new layout or embellishment? Let’s get one of those things crossed off our list this week!

But I hope everyone else has a stellar crafting week!

Violet Bouquet

This is my very first quilling project, now completed! It is based on Claire Choi‘s “Violet Bouquet” in her The Art of Paper Quilling (p. 38). I changed some of the colors around (acc. to what I had available) and left out a few things I didn’t like.  I’m pretty happy with it…I need to work on my bunny ears and my arrowheads because the bow didn’t come out right. Mounted on khaki cardstock.

Quilling Project A: In Progress

Ok, so here’s a sneak peak at my latest project.  I have to say that quilling has become a good form of meditation for me…and it requires patience, so it is good practice for me in that area!!
