August "Craft & Crop at the Bird House

Here are two of the 4 projects we will be creating for our August event. Remember that we will be meeting on Aug. 22 at our regular time, instead of the 15th. Bring something of your own to work on in case you finish and still have time left.
Here is the first project.
This is a cute basket that you can use as a center piece or give to someone filled with gifts. Cookies would come to mind. You be the judge. I found the template for this basket on Splitcoaststampers and enlarged it (double). I made center pieces for a picnic theme at work for our Family Event we will be having tomorrow.
Next is the second project. I have been wanting to create this one for some time now.
I also enlarge their template on my printer using 150%. This is a cute backpack. It was for a gift card but I thought it would be cool larger and you could put a treat for the teacher or some school supplies as a gift. The ideas are endless.

This took 3 patterned papers, black and white ribbon, brads and Velcro.

Here is a view of the back.

Here is a view of the top when it is open. There is also a pocket that can be opened and something like a card or gift card can be tucked away there. I will post the other two projects when they are completed. Hope you will join me we will have a blast. I am looking forward to hearing from you for a seat count.

"Craft & Crop" At the Bird House

I can't wait to see  you all again. I have started my new job and am working hard to get into the groove of a new routine. Here are the projects for this months projects.
Here is the Craft that we will be doing this weekend July 18th at my home. This is called a Box Drawer. You can put a gift in it or make a set of cards and give that as a gift. I made it out of card stock, but you could make it out of light weight chip board and create a cute box for your child, grandchild or friend.
Here is a view of when it is opened.
The next item is the card we will be creating. This style is called A Latch Card. I used the theme for a girl friend.
Here is the inside of the card and the quote I chose.
Here is the set of Scrapbook pages you will be creating, the theme is Summer Time Fun.
Here is the quote for this page
Sorry I have not been posting for so long. Every time I went to post something I had trouble. I finally got tired of trying and stopped. I was just posting on Face book. I decided to try again and it seems to be working. So I will continue to post again. Hope to see you at my home for "Craft & Crop" and a wonderful time together.

January "Craft & Crop" at the Bird House

January 12 was my birthday and I turned 60, this entire month I have been behind on everything. Do you think it is because I have turned the big 6, 0, or it's just one of those months. Well, I have chosen the theme of "My Favorite Things". One of my favorite things is "Friends", so we will make a card with the them of Friends.
Sorry, I have had problems down loading photos. will try again later.

Craft & Crop at the Bird House

Sorry for the lack of posts. I have had site problems. I have not been able to post photos for some reason and still have not been able to figure out the problem. I have been posting on Face book and sending emails with attachments. I am working on getting the problem solved. Thank you for being so patient with me.
Love you all
