Gwenna's 4th birthday party went really well; not really as planned but still good. No other kids but all family and that's okay. So today I have a lot of projects to share.

My First project is one I put together from craft items from the dollar store! Contains: Yellow Ribbon, Orange leaves, Yellow flowers, red bush twig thingies, 2 pkgs (diff. colors) of styrafoam fall squash, Hot Glue gun, wire cutters, floral wire & floral tape. I've always wanted to have a cute, homemade fall decoration & I finally got all the pieces I wanted so I put this together.
My Basket here is one that I keep in my craft room cause I like a bit of green! well I had leftovers from my wreath so I added some floral wire and stuck everything higglty-piglty till I liked the look.
This falling leaf card and envelope is from SVGcuts.com (falling leaf card) and i'm entering it into Stuck on U Sketches challenge: We Rake, We Pile, We Jump http://stuckonusketches.blogspot.com/ I love the look of this card and its a slider (so I watched the tutorial on their website). Amazing! I'm definetly going to make more. the paper is from my scrap stash and the brads are from my sister. the ribbon is from Porters and I used foam adhesive mini circles.

This storm trooper card is a png file I found on pinterest and I just love star wars so I decided to make this card just for me :) I'm entering this card into the Red Carpet Studio Challenge: Sci-Fi http://redcarpetstudiochallenge.blogspot.com/
This box is from simple match box file from Lettering Delights. I added a window with a flourish (don't ask how... I have no idea but jin on http://underacherrytree.blogspot.com/ has a tutorial on how to do this with the word hello (posted a day or two ago) and I wanted to keep our used candles in it so that they'd stop breaking. I made the belly band by merging circles together and the little candle on the front I made myself. Inside there is a false bottom (like those in crayon boxes) that I made myself as well. I'm entering this into Peachy Keen Stamps 3-D challenge #36: Candle http://www.peachykeenstampschallenge.blogspot.com/ On the back is stamped Happy Birthday.

this little Gem is made by cutting 9 2x2 squares, 3 in the green with black spots, 3 in black & 3 in yellow. then I cut the green & black squares into triangles and 2 of the yellow ones into triangles. then I used this cute little witch from Lettering Delights (costume clubhouse). Isn't she so cute? I added sparkly black glitter glue on her boots and belt so it would shimer then poped her up with adhesive mini circles. I'm entering this little cutie in HIMCR# 64 http://www.hidinginmycraftroom.com/ The rules say: "The challenge this week, the 4th week of the month, is Mix it Up SATURDAY: Halloween Style! This can be ANY project with a Halloween theme!" Also in the little scrap pieces challenge: Use Black & Green @ http://littlescrappieces.blogspot.com/2012/09/fun-friday-use-black-green-challenge.html & in the cameo spotlight: Triangles @ http://thecameospotlight.blogspot.com/

I made this in 2007 when I was pregnant with my first daughter and still working at Porters Craft & Frame in Rexburg, Id. I used some scrap mat board and used a bind-it-all that the store allows you to use while there, after you buy your paper and other materials, of course. And since I was training I thought it would be good to know how to use one of these properly.
Well today is my brother's birthday and since i've started blogging i've made a plethora of birthday cards but I've been super busy trying to get everything in order. I have the card but now I have to go make dinner. It's my first time making Lomo Saltado (an old family favorite) so I hope all of you have a wonderful day / days till I next post. Happy Crafting everyone!
