Here it Is ☺Aug. Craft & Crop Craft Project

Remembering that the Theme chosen by the ladies from our last event was "Texas" I created a Texas Star chip board ring bound album. It turned out so cute. I am not a Texan by birth but I love living here. I did pretty good.

 I cut the chip board and pages from my Cricut Cartridge "A Child's Life" it was a marshals badge. I used two sided card stock so both side of my pages would be decorated for me.
 Then I centered a flat card that I cut from the same cartridge and centered and layered a white frame to that.
 On two pages I put a folded card from the same pattern and cartridge and I was able to add three spaces for pictures instead of just one on this page.
 I added two of these to the album for fun.
You can see "top, bottom and center" for three pictures to show.
 I added some embellishments that I cut from the same cartridge also. I used some of these larger to embellish the pages I created for you. I added some strips of blue and red bandanna to the rings holding the binding of the album.
In the center of this Marchall's badge were two slits and on the cover of the album I laced a piece of Bandanna and hot glued a gold button. You can take the bare bones of this album and add your own embellishments. It is so cute!
Hope you liked this project. If you would like to join us and make one, I have a couple of seats open, call for reservations. We will meet at my home this Sat.Aug 23 from 6:30 to midnight. Bring a dish, $20 and get ready to have a great time!! Can't wait to see you.

Love to share

I wanted to let you know that I have a new Class at my Jo-Anns in Hurst. Wilton has created a condenced Decorating Basics Course 1 Cake class that is now 2 thee hour sessions instead of the orignal 4 two hour sessions. You can now complete the class in two sessions. I know that this will be great for most people who don't want to take a month to complete the course. So, come on in to Jo-Anns and ask for Marye Bird. I would love to get you registered for the next Wilton class. Remember if you are interested in a different craft to learn, we have a great group of instructors who teach a verious classes. Some of the classes offer free supplies, and we always have great sales going on.

 This is some of the students from our Wilton Decorating Course 1

 take a look at what they learned!

Craft & Crop at the Bird House August Projects

Sorry I am running a little behind on posting projects but here are the Card and pages we will be working on for August.

 This is a cute card that has a top that flips over and you have a pocket where you can place a gift card or just hide a sweet message for someone special.

 This would be a great card for you to use the envelope boxes that we made at our last event. You could fit this right inside without smashing the bow and give it to a friend or loved one.

Here are the pages I created for August event. You ladies requested a page about Texas. Since I am not a native of Texas, I used my prospective of the things I know about Texas. I hope you enjoy creating it.  I have not finished decorating the craft I we will be creating. But I may not post it either, you will have to wait and see what it is.

Here is the list I have for reserved seats, If you name is not on here and you would like to join us, let me know by calling or emailing me at 817-595-5842 please leave a message or email me at and leave a number so I can call you to confirm. Looking forward to seeing you all.
