August 24 Craft & Crop At the Bird House

I am running a little behind, lots happening at the Bird House. But, I finished the pages for you. Our theme is going to be Friends. I found a special quote on line that fits the feelings I have for friends. Hope you enjoy them.

I found some cute things here and there from different projects that I saw and incorporated them on these two cute pages.

This is the sweet quote I found online and added. I love this.


These are the flowers we have used in the past, but I left them whole instead of cutting petals from then and put them together with brads.


I folded ribbon and attached it , used a punch for  the blue and place stripped patterned paper over that and added buttons to each side. The words Friends was cut using my Plantin Schoolbook Cricut Cartridge and I layered it.


The cute flags where done with two sided paper. All the papers used here I purchased on clearance from Jo-Anns.

This was different in many ways then the pages we have done in the past. But, I know you will love it when you are done!
We have a couple of seats open if you would like to join us contact me.

Craft & Crop at the Bird House August 24th

I have been out of town supporting my wonderful Husband who is dealing with Bladder Cancer. We spent most of our time at MD Anderson in Houston. Please keep us in your prayers.

I just got started this morning with the projects we will be creating  for our August event. The theme this month will be "Friends". I found this sweet box that I fell in love with and just had to share with you ladies..
This box is so simple, the hardest part was deciding how I wanted to decorate it.
I used two Cricut cartridges to decorate mine, but you can use any tools or embellishments to make yours really cute. I found this nice quote online to go with our "Friends" theme.
This box is 2" deep, but you can change it if you like. I hope you will be looking forward to this craft. I will get busy now and create your scrapbook kits and then share them with you. Remember now, Candi is going to teach us how to use stamps. I am so excited I have never been comfortable with them and want to know all the ins and outs of stamping. Don't forget to bring a dish to share.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
