It’s been about a month since my last crafty post so I thought I would check in and show you what I have been working on. It has not been all cards for me lately. I have gotten a new toy that help me make candy boxes and I have gotten into making postcards as well. Actually making post cards is now one of my favorite things to do. Anyway, here are some of the things that have gone out and been received
Ginger is a HUGE pineapple lover so I went a little over board with her pineapple love and made her whole birthday gift a theme. I hand cut the pineapple on the card out of a journaling card I had. It gave the front just the pop I was looking for. And the pineapple paperclip on the envelope? Removable.
Probably one of my most favorite cards I have made. I was walking down my street on my way home and got this idea for Morgan‘s card. It turned out EXACTLY how I wanted it to. I almost feel like I want to make a bunch of different ones and have a boxed set of them. Hmm…
Danielle just got this one yesterday so I’m happy to finally share it. I got the idea on Pinterest to make books on the cover. With the help of her Goodreads I added the titles of some of her favorites. My favorite part? The “Special Birthday Wishes” stamp. I raised it with foam dots and I love it.
As I said above, Ginger loves pineapples so when I was looking for something to put her pineapple earrings in, I decided to make this “candy box” and embellish it with a pineapple and a tag. I love this little thing. The tool is really awesome to make them.
I had signed up for a postcard swap with Uppercase. Instead of buying a postcard I decided to make my own and make it very book nerdy. This is the beginning of my postcard making obsession.
When I showed off my swap postcard Daphne mentioned how she would die if she got something like that. Well I offered to make her her own postcard and the above was born.
And finally I had to send a thank you postcard to the person that sent me a postcard in the swap. I came up with this creation and sent it off. I loved the mix of colors on this one.
So there you have it, what I have been up to craft wise. I have some new things I have done that I am sending off as a thank you to someone, some pocket letter swaps I signed up for, and of course new cards, that will make their way into next month’s post.
What did you think about these creations?
