April "Craft & Crop" at the Bird House Card Project

OK, I have been waiting to make this cute little card. I found it a while back and promised I would create it for our Spring theme craft event. So here you go girls. Your going to love this one.

This sweet card is a flip up card, shaped like a pair of overhauls.

 I added this little watering can that I got from "Freshly Picked" Cricut Cartridge and then added a quote and a little flower from "Plantin Schoolbook" Cricut Cartridge.
 I used these rhinestone brads to add some bling to it.
 The cuffs of the overalls are done in a different pattern paper than the coveralls to add some contrast.
 When you flip the card open there is a white section for you to add your message.
The person you gift this card to can display it anywhere and every time they look at it, they will remember how someone thought they were special.

Candi gave me a list from the last Crop night and here is what I have. If you are not on this list and want to be. Call or email me ASAP. If you are not going to make it and your name is on the list, please let me know. If you want to invite a friend, we would love to have them. Just let me know
I have 4 spots left!!

Here is April 26 "Craft & Crop" at the Bird House Craft Project

This is a cute Posted notepad holder. I actually had another project for a magnetic message board, but could not find the instructions. I found it while I was in Houston at the Hospital with my Husband while he was having surgery. But, when I got home I could not find it. So after searching around I found this idea and re-created it with my own desing. My Granddaughter Brooklyn loved it. I will have to make her one.
 This is created using the essel design. You can prop it up or fold it closed.

I cut this background frame at work using the Spellbinder die cut machine. I love the way it cuts but do not own one. I framed this part of the project and then found this great stamp and framed it too. I used one of my favorite flower patterns from "Plantin Schoolbook" Cricut Cartridge and a couple of glittery green brads to attach the layers of the flowers. I then added some leaves from "Home Decor" Cricut Cartridge. I am pleased with how cute this came out. I know you will love it too.

Here are Saturday April 26 "Craft & Crop" at the Bird House Projects

Sorry I am way behind on getting these completed project posted so you can get a look at what we will be doing for this Saturday's Craft & Crop. I have been gone for almost a month and our family is getting back to normal.

 Here are the pages we will be doing. I love the bird cage and have been wanting to do something with it. I also love this sweet bird from "Home Decor" Cricut cartridge. The flowers and window boxes are from "Freshly Picked"
 This is the quote for page one. I love it!
 This window with the curtain comes from "Creative Cards" Cricut Cartridge, I added some pearl stickers.
 I added a stamped quote that really says it. I love gardening.
 I attached some shear ribbon from Jo-Anns and then tied a small piece to it.
 This is a better shot of the bird.
and another close up of the flowers. The purple and yellow came from "Freshly Picked" and the pink ones and the  leaves came from "Home Decor" it is one of the older seasonal cartridges.

I hope you will enjoy creating this I am so excited to be back. I missed you all so much. I know you had a great time with Candi and I was grateful that she was able to step in and take my place. But, I  am looking forward to see you all.
