I picked up a few of these super cheap wooden frames at Micheal's for a craft for my daughter and her friends to do during sleepovers, they stay busy I take a pic of them to put in them, and they have a take home.  I thought it looked like fun so I joined in and used a pic of me and my husband taken on vacation at the beach.

I used:

wooden frame
white acrylic paint
silk flowers
cricut -Sweethearts
glossy black cardstock
pink cardstock
PKS Mark and Sharen love Frogs (I think is what the set is called) "Happily Ever After!"

Peachy Challenge 08 :: Anything Goes

I'm a slacker and haven't found much time for crafting.  I need to find a way to make more hours in a day.  My project was super annoying to make, not difficult, just tedious, and resulted in numerous hot glue burns... but well worth it.  It's a candle holder made from a half of a styrofoam just screams "SPRING", doesn't it?

I Used:
Cricut; Create a Critter, Flower Shoppe
Quilling tool 
Hot glue gun
glue runner
PKS Winter Wonderland Assortment
White & red gel pens
Red chalk
Floral wire
Styrofoam ball cut in half

The process:
Push a candle into the center of the styrofoam ball cut in half.  Cut a million (or so it seems) of the spirals from the Flower Shoppe cartridge, use the quilling tool to turn them into pretty flowers securing with hot glue (run burns under cold water).  Secure the flowers to the ball using more hot glue (treat more burns).  Cut the bee and all it's parts (hiding the face on the Gypsy) and assemble attaching it to the floral wire, stamp the face, color the eyes and mouth, chalk the cheeks, and push the wire into the "flower garden".  Treat the burns again, and pour
 a glass (or 2) of wine to celebrate.

PKS 64

Alright, I tried something new.  I watched the awesome Emma (My Creative Time, PK Design Team, crafter extraordinaire) coloring with Copics and thought "that looks easy, I should get mine out".  Well it wasn't easy, I had to restart a few times, and it's not perfect...but....I LOVE COPICS.  I need more, but hubby said I have to wait...something about a budget (whatever that is, lol).

Kept the card simple because the coloring drove me crazy.
I Used:
Cardstock:  Maroon, forest green, black, white 
Cuttlebug with Spellbinders Nestabilities Lg Scalloped Ovals
Heat set gems and tool
Memento Ink
PKS Faceless Christmas Heads
PKS Winter Wonderland Face Assortment
Glossy Effects

LFIF-Creepy Cute

So I had A LOT of fun with my entry.  I have been a little obsessed with Shrinky dinks recently, So I decided to make some Halloween earrings for my entry.  As I was finishing the first earring my daughter says..."those might have to be mine".  So here she is modeling her new earrings.
To start this project I cut some circular shapes with a bump (two circles welded together on my gypsy) out of Crystal Clear Shrinky Dink material.  Hint: When cutting this material it helps to cut twice.  Then I stamped one side with my Uglies stamp set using StazOn.

Next I flipped over (if you color the same side you stamp it will smudge) and colored my little monsters with Bic Mark It permanent markers.  Then punched holes in the little bump area.
 Then into the toaster oven to shrink.  Then I started the assembally of the earrings, pulled out my pliers, jumprings and other jewlery making stuff and got to work with my little(r) monsters.
