My crafty ways...

Wednesday, March 10, 2010

The crafting vacation I did "not" confess to Monday has been a lot of fun... I wanted to show you some of what I've been up to....

I took this plain clipboard that cost .98 at Walmart


And turned it into this with some cute paper, chipboard and some mod-podge...


I also have been doing a lot of crafting for the Alice In Wonderland theme swap I was participating in. I know my swap partner received her package so now I can show you some of what I've been up to...

I made her this padded camera strap...

Did you notice the Mad Hatter in the center of the flower?

I've been making a bunch of these camera strap covers for gifts and they have been really fun.
The others I've been making don't have the flower...
but a few have camera lens cover pockets.

I also took a little vinyl scrapbook from Hobby Lobby, some mod-podge, ribbon and embellishments and spiffed it up for her...


She sent me some pictures of her cute family and I had fun scrapping them...
I admit the AIW theme here is a little weak... I shopped for supplies that reminded me of the overall story and theme, but didn't stick to just the theme for the pages...
Here, I'll show you...










Remember the hint I put out last week...


A couple people asked what I did with the Scrabble tiles...

I flipped them over and made these charms...
sorry the picture is so bad... I really wish you could see them...
One is a pocket watch, the Rabbit, Alice with a flamingo and the Mad Hatter all really vintage looking....
I used this dimensional jewel coat over them that made them turn out neat..
I plan to make more this week...

I also dressed up some treats...
(jelly beans and a chocolate bar...)

And after scrapbooking all those cute photos I wanted to include something for JJ...
(Her sweet boy)
He is into rockets, so when I saw this little wooden shape at Hobby Lobby I know I had to get it...
Sparky picked out the little Nerf ball for him...


Thanks for listening,
