Craft Day

Thanks to everyone who attended our craft day last week. We had a lot of fun!

Here are some samples of projects we did:
Coloring card for Caring 4 Kids
It's always great to use paper scraps to create a card. My daughter made this one.

Valentine's card
Some cute cards were made using the fun envelopes created by the Big Shot die cut machine.

These cute boxes were also made from the envelope die with the Big Shot.
I can't take credit for this idea. Sherrill Graff was the one who came up with this creative thought. Some kids got creative and stamped the boxes with hearts.
Many other cute cards, bookmarks, and Valentines were made. Next craft day I'll take pictures as were creating so everyone's creative ideas can be seen. Thanks again for a great day of crafting!

B Mine

Valentine's Day is coming soon. Have you made any Valentine's cards yet? Well, here's an idea for you. I used the Just B stamp set with the Polka Dot background stamp. I chose a color combo of Pink Pirouette, White, & Purely Pomegranate(ret). Let me know what other color combos might be great for Valentine's cards. Have a B-utiful day!
