Here's an easy project to create. Try it with kids:
Cut all these pieces:
Arrange as shown:
This will be the result:
The library where I work had a summer reading theme relating to adventure a few years ago. I created a treasure map to the children's department for tehm to hand out to the kids.
The sections of stacks are very generalized but correct in location to one another.
A while back, at work, I created some custom labels for book spines. One of these was the recently shown 'Food For Thought' graphic. Here are some others:
This is for the children's department for books written in two languages.
This is for a new collection of paperbacks.
And this one is for the graphic novels in the children's department.
They all are in a 3/4" x 1" format.
So glad the days are coming into line with MY sleep schedule. It means I don't have to get up too early to experience THIS!
Is this not truly spectacular?????
The hardest thing for me right now is learning to take photos on my digital camera WITHOUT the benefit of the preview screen. The thing just stopped working right. Instead of a true preview (or postview) there is a very light screen that kinda gives you general shapes. It's very annoying and I take 4-5 pictures hoping one of them will look OK when they are uploaded to the computer. It's more and more like using the old SLR and waiting for the prints to come back. REMEMBER THOSE DAYS??
Anyhoo - have a great day!
Now I do believe this is my new favorite! I needed to make a card with 'inchies' for a swap. These were left over from last spring and I built everything around them.
I started with a beige card and added layers of torn scrapbook paper and printed papers of music and script. I used 'old paper' distress ink to bring the tones all in line and unify it. Then I used an antiwue postcard text stamp with the same ink to stamp over the whole surface.
The green panel was stamped with the postcard script in black and I then used a gold paint pen to border the edges. I mounted a gold dragonfly outline sticker on more of the green and trimmed off the extra. It is adhered with raised wings using folded glue dots.
The inchies are mounted with glue dots for strength of bond.
Challenge time again. This assignment was to 'make a swing card'. I used the directions on Splitcoaststampers and decorated it with some inchies I made last spring.
I stamped the inside with one of my favorite text stamps.
The side borders were trimmed up with gold peel-off borders and I added gold peel-off flowers to the stamped panel.
Verigated threads used to stitch up the dragonfly pattern really change the look of it. I cut a scalloped circle into quarters and embossed with the Cuttlebug to create some corner elements. Gold trim and text finish it off.
Oh my, it's another 3D - FREE of course. When I print these on white cardstock and cut them out I end up with white edges. I carefully color those edges with matching watercolor marker.
On this one I put the gold trim directly on the image, right over the printed border. A text sticker finishes it.
This 3D cutting is a commercial one someone sent me in a swap a while back. It is another that looked complicated so I set it aside until now. It wasn't nearly as bad as I imagined it would be.
I used a scrap cut out from those recent thank you cards as a backing for this grouping and added gold trim and text.
The butterfly is also 3D and is part of the original sheet.
Oh look! The dragonfly is back.
This time I used metallic green for the leaves and stems, bronze metallic for the cattails, purple metallic for the bug body, and irridescent metallic lavender for the wings.
I used a folded cardstock base and sheer ribbon bow to match the wings.
The text is a clear sticker.
Oh, how I love free patterns! This flower vine looks like the petals are made of little hearts so, appropriate for February!
I trimmed and texted with silver peel-offs.
Hard to stitch, hard to see, looks MUCH better at an angle or while moving it around. Obviously, you're not getting that effect here!
This is stitched in alternating gold and bronze threads on paste paper I made some time ago.
Trimmed up with borders and text in gold peel-offs.
This pattern is one of the free ones I downloaded. I pricked it out on scrapbook paper with a mottled print and stitched entirely in brown. A couple of strips of gold peel-off and a gold greeting keep it looking clean and simple.
A 3D cutting from a sheet I got on the internet. This cutting comes complete with the decorative background and I grabbed a cardstock scrap from my desk for the card base.
I trimmed around the illustration with gold peel-off border and added a peel-off greeting.
The paste paper used for background on this temari makes it difficult to individualize the threads in the stitching. Even so, I like the card.
I added a gold peel-off greeting and gold trim close around the front panel.
The gold rose in the center is also a peel-off sticker.
Oooooh, this is a beautiful paper! I have been saving it for years for just the right project. Tah Dah!
I got all the 'thank you' cards done and had two constructions left, so I made a birthday card of this one.
More than halfway there!
You may recognize this green dot paper from projects past. I still love it and this is almost the last piece of it. This makes me sad... where will I ever find more of it?
