Red, White & Blue Pop-Top Earrings

I just made these cute earrings for the 4th of July Holiday. Aren't they adorable! I wore a pair to work today and gave some to a couple of special people that I work with. I love making these and experimenting with different colors and beads. I think I might make a necklace and bracelet too.

June "Craft & Crop "at the Bird House

OK ladies here it is. This is the page you will be creating for our June 29th Project. I love this page!

I used only two Cricut Cartridges to make these two pages for you. Independence Day & Stand and Salute.

I found this wonderful Independence prayer on line to make it something special. But the real addition will be the photos you take during you 4th of July Holiday.
Here is a little detail
And some more detail
And since our country was founded on
 God it goes without saying that I should
add a requested blessing.
I hope you like it as much as I do. Can't wait to see you guys at my house on June 29th at 6:30-Midnight. Bring your favorite dish and I have a surprise craft that the materials were given to me by Pamela. She will be surprised too! Thank you Pamela for thinking of me.

Just-a-scrappin Design Team project "Graduation"

Another first for me. I made a magic slider card and designed it for Graduation. This was a little confusing at first, but once I figured out what they had done it was a ooh yeah moment.

This was so cool, you can pull out one side and the other side comes out at the same time and then when you push it back in the other side also goes back in. Hope you like it.

"Craft & Crop" at the Bird House Card Project

Here is the card we will be creating for our June 29 "Craft & Crop" at the Bird House. Hope you like it.

View at an angle: This is the easel design card and when you ca laps it, this card will fit in a envelope.

Here is the front view. I used my Texture Boutique for the Swiss dot pattern. I used a Fiskar hand punch for the circular pattern and cut them in multi colors and layered them on each other, trimmed and framed them. The quote I copied from the Internet you should recognize it from a Garth Brooks country singer.

This is what the inside looks like, where you would write your message.

So many times we forget what a sacrifice our troops and their families give and we are so busy with our lives that we take our freedoms for granted. I will send this card to those I know who have and are serving our country so I can have the freedom that many countries do not. I hope you like this card and that you will take time to show your gratitude for what they have and are doing for our country and our lives.
