So this is my homemade supply stand that my awesome hubby made for me! My good friend Jessica (you know who you are) dropped off the lamp shade frame one evening because she knew what I wanted done with it. Some ready rod, nuts and the base from our old light in our kitchen complete the project.
He spent part of the next day thinking of ways to improve on the design. Lol. I love my hubby, he is an awesome guy!
I went to an amazing scrapbook store owned and run by some awesome woman called Something to Scrap About in Red Deer Alberta to get some sort of clips, just my luck, they just got a few packages of the clip it up clips which work perfect!
You should check this store out by visiting their FaceBook page online or in person if you are lucky enough to live near by!

Altered Epicure Jars

So this little project was my first attempt at altering an object. I did this for a challenge from
They were made using empty, clean Epicure jars and paper from a DCWV stack that I had bought over a year ago and never used. The "ribbon flower tops" were made using 2" glubbers. It was loads of fun to do and I am looking forward to altering many more items!

Gr. 2 Zoo Field Trip Name Tags

It has been awhile since I posted due to a small flood in our basement. Everything that was in the wet area was put into my craft room which is still unfinished and being used as half a storage area to begin with. So things are a wee bit cramped in there. Lol
My oldest son is in grade two this year and his class along with the other grade two class are going to the Calgary Zoo for their year end field trip. I asked the teacher if I could make name tags for the kids. I used Create a Critter cartridge from PC and my gypsy to make them. I did 3 layers with the second and third ones being drawn with my black cricut marker not cut. I then switched the marker out for the blade and cut out layer one.
I used the cricut white card stock from the 12x24 black and white paper pack. The kids will colour their name tags how they want and then they will be laminated. Once that is done, we will punch two holes to hang a string through to go around their necks.
