Weekend Projects

I have gotten a job working in a reading program at a local K-3 school so have not had much time to devote to this blog. However, my daughter, Jenne, was in town this weekend. She has a severe case of carpal tunnel so couldn't do too much. She needed a frame and some cards so this is what we did.
This was a wooden frame from Michaels, which the recipient will put in a picture of her little one. We created the lighthouse from a stencil and just added pieces. The dirt was just torn pieces of paper and the boat was a wooden one from Michaels. The airplane was from Clip Art and the background paper was just some from Michaels also.

These 3 cards were 1) an underwater scene for the big brother of Aidan (who is getting the frame above). Jenne bought him a book and Nemo stuffed animal and we made this card to go along with it. We got the Nemo from Clip Art. The seaweed is just stamped and cut out on bashful blue and brown torn paper. Inside Nemo says I am the big brother and we also put a little goldfish that says Hi Big brother. The 2) is a trifold card using Baby Boy paper from JoAnns and Brocade Blue and some funky star brads I just happen to have a million of in several colors! This card was for the parents of Aidan and his Big Brother. 3) is a birthday card for Jenne's boyfriend Corwin's niece. She loves butterflies and we were looking on line on Splitcoast and saw a similar card-can't remember who to thank for this! We just drew dots, added tiny prima flowers, and stamped a butterfly and popped up a duplicate on top. This is a $1 stamp from Michaels. Anyway it was a very productive weekend!
