More CHA Make and Take Projects

Hello again!
Last week was totally a dream come true.  Attending the CHA Show was a wonderful experience.  Today I am sharing the last of the make and take projects offered at the conference.  This beautiful purse was surprisingly easy to make using Fabri-Tac by Beacon Adhesives.

These small white boxes were decorated with the gelatos by Faber-Castell.  I liked them so much I went out and bought a set of ten.

Tags made with the beautiful designer paper by Graphic 45.
This pretty canvas was decorated with papers by DCWV.
Unfortunately, I can't remember the name of the company where I colored this beautiful silk scarf and decorated my initial ring.  I'm having a senior moment.
Made a few cutesy cards.

DCWV also manufacturers jewelry products which I didn't know.  I couldn't get enough of making their bracelets and necklaces. 

These cute mini notebooks were made with products by Little B. 
I've thoroughly enjoyed sharing these projects with you and I hope you enjoyed looking.

Hello and Welcome!
Today I want to share the Christmas cards I made at the CHA workshop designed by  This one was made using the Berry Branch and Birdie dies.

For this one, the following dies were used: Merry Christmas, 5-Part Pine and Snowflakes dies.  This card was my favorite.

The last one used the Mitten die and for all the cards we used micro fine glitters.  Hope you enjoyed viewing these cards.

Teresa Collins Memorabilia CHA Make and Take

Happy Friday Friends!
This week at the CHA Show here in Las Vegas, we were showered with tons of creativity.  Teresa Collins was one of the exhibitors at the show promoting her new EBosser Machine.  We were able to emboss several of the pages on at the exhibit and then take the project home and assemble it.

It is hard to appreciate the embossing affect on these pictures but believe me they are beautiful.
This page has clocks embossed onto it.  What I learned this week is that sequins are the latest in embellishing your projects.  From cards to scrap pages they are being used more and more.
The paper line is the Document Paper by Teresa Collins.  I was fortunate to have met her in person and that was quite a thrill.
I will share more of the make and take projects with you next week.  Thanks for stopping by.

CHA Show Make and Take Projects

This has been a very exciting week for me.  I am attending the CHA Show here in Las Vegas, Nevada and yesterday was a day filled with creativity.  Many of the vendors have Make and Take projects and I was able to make the above items.

I want to share a few of my favorites.  This is a mini canvas titled WISH.  I kind of "wish" this week wouldn't end.

Love this little box.  I learned some new techniques which I plan to use again.

I was surprised how easy this bracelet was to make.  It came out so pretty.  I just might take up jewelry making.

Very cute Christmas card that opens up.
Here's a Graphic 45 tag that we made with the Steampunk Spells paper line.

And lastly this pretty heart necklace.
This was a day of pure enjoyment!

Spellbinders Media Mixage

Happy Monday everyone!!
Today was the first day of the CHA Show here in Las Vegas, Nevada.  I was fortunate to be able to attend thanks to Jennifer Pereida the owner of the Crafting Place.  I registered for the Spellbinder class on Media Mixage and this is the project I completed--a fabric journal.

This cute little birdhouse is attached to the closure of the journal.

Even though this was a fast-paced project I loved the final outcome.  This was a new experience for me using several different techniques and tools.

And who doesn't love FREE product!  We were treated to all these packages of the Media Mixage.  This is a three-day event and I am thoroughly looking forward to tomorrow.

Halloween Mini Album

Happy Friday!
While shopping at my favorite scrapbook stores this week, I noticed that they are already displaying both Halloween and Christmas products.  Seeing the Halloween displays motivated me to work on this mini album.

I used the Halloween stash that I had left over from last year.  The designer paper is a 6-3/4" by 4-3/4" mat pad by Martha Stewart.

I used stickers by Recollections to decorate my album.  The side tabs open up and you can place seven wallet-size pictures on either side.

On the bottom flaps you can get five more pictures matted.

Once I finished one album I couldn't stop there, so I made another one with a Valentine theme.

The base of the album is a 12" by 12" card stock and then decorated with several pieces of designer paper.

Hope you're motivated to start crafting for the upcoming holidays.  I'm thinking I will make a birthday theme album next.
Have a fun crafting weekend!

Artiste Cricut Birthday Cards

Good morning friends!
I have a few birthday cards made with the Artiste cartridge.  Using the "S" key you can make these neat swing cards.

For the hippo image I used the Close to my Heart stamp set "You're Great."

Here's another one with the verse "You're Great! (no lion)" from the same stamp set.
This cute little lion will bring a smile to any child. 

For this last card I used a beautiful butterfly and some rhinestone swirls.
Thanks for visiting today.

Muslin Treat Bags

Welcome friends!
At my Close To My Heart hostess club meeting we made these pretty decorated muslin treat bags.

We used the CTMH drawstring muslin bags and decorated them with the For Always Textiles.  We also added black tulle and rhinestones.

These make great gift bags for jewelry, sweets or any small surprise for that special someone.  Have a blessed day!
