HERE IT IS......


I visited my friend, +LaDenna Lawrence,  last week and we completed so many great projects!  I couldn't wait to get them posted!  Everything we used for the projects was re-recyclable except for a 'book' that we purchased for less than $2.
(This is a long post but is photo heavy.)

 The booklets are made from scrap cardboard.

I love this card!  We used our Cricuts to cut the images.

LaDenna found 2 of these frames in her garage.  We made cork boards for Christmas gifts.

This little pretty is made from a large tuna can!  Very simple to make and would make great little gifts!

 This letter-well, let's say I will not attempt it again!  lol  We started with a cardboard base and built it with Dixie cups.  Yes, Dixie cups!  Wrapping the circle on the P was a challenge.  I used craft paper, then crepe paper streamers.  And I finished it off with a print scrapbook paper and a LOT of Mod Podge.  I do like how it turned out after I got it decorated; but it was definitely a challenge!

I want to do more of these stars.  It is a couple of pages of scrapbook paper and some tissue paper in the middle to help hold the  shape.  The flowers were cut with the Cricut.

Halloween!  We got our inspiration from a paper crafts magazine.  (I can't remember the name of it)  The tags and cards are simple yet very pretty.

 These Christmas cards are stunning!  The pic doesn't do them justice.  They are made from glitter paper and the cuts are made with the Cricut.  These are very simple but make a big impact.  I can't wait to send these out this year!

This hanging JOY sign and card holder were made entirely of paper and a little lace and bling.  It's is surprising what you can do with paper!!

This one still needs a little work.  We got paper mache books on sale at Hobby Lobby for half price (less than $2).  They are papered and have a tray that pulls up for extra storage.  I'm going to put a pocket on it, add a pen and use it for my Christmas lists!
