Thank you cards I made for the people I interviewed with yesterday. It was a great opportunity to finally use this mouse I made a couple of years ago.
Micron and colored pencils on textures paper I got from Hollo’s.
Unedited picture of completed Hogwarts House Stars set. There’s a highly distracting line right down the middle showing where the different sheets of white paper I used meet. (I guess that’s what I get for using a make-shift backdrop). I’ll post edited pics (and possibly reshoots if I make another set) on my design blog and then reblog them here…eventually.
Carolyn’s Bridal Shower Gift :: Card and Gift Wrap
Making everything tie together.
After signing up to be a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, my first set of stamps came just in time for Carolyn’s Bridal Shower. I based the color scheme off of the only wrapping paper we had that wasn’t Christmas themed. The brown ended up working really well once I paired the brown twine with the “Wedding Wishes” birds stamped. I made sure that both the envelope and wrapping paper correlated with the card by stamping them with the same gold ink and stamps. The “C” and “T” are the bride and groom’s initials, and I accented the “C” with the light blue since it was the bridal shower.
I forgot to take a picture of the actual wedding gift, but I used the same letter and bird stamps with the gold and light blue ink, as well as the same brown twine.
Carolyn really appreciated how everything matched and went together when she opened her bridal shower gift, and I hope she enjoyed that I brought the same themes to their wedding gift too.
A few panda ones of course.
Dr. Who for Jen
Bringing back the X’s and O’s
A rose in honor of Sunday’s Once Upon a Time
Chase’s Christmas Present :: Dr. Who Ornament
The brilliant result of 2:00AM brainstorming past Kristine holding on to various craft supplies.
I’ve missed making things for people, and since I didn’t get the chance to make staff gifts this year (Remember last years?), I was ecstatic when I figured out how to make Chase’s gift. I got doubly excited when I got the chance to combine 4 of my current favorite things into the gift: ornaments, paper stars, Dr. Who, and shrinky-dinks.
Seriously. Shrinky-dinks have become my favorite craft supply. Especially when I found out I had the kind I could print on.
Anyways, I spent the day folding mini stars (1/4” X 5.5” rather than 1/2” x 11”) and cutting out Time Lord symbols and Daleks (so. many. Daleks.) to fill a glass ornament. Then, I strung a mini Tardis to the top so it could float in its own little Christmas universe.
Mom says it involved too much effort. I didn’t think so at all. I’ve missed doing crafts and projects, so this was nothing but fun for me.
Valentines for Staff and Christine
Origami Kimono Hearts [I’ll post the instructions later]
Each person got a little note inside along with a Pixie Stick
Little Brother and a Valentine
This is what I gave to my coworkers for Christmas:
They’re hot-chocolate ice cream cones!
It’s just Hot Cocoa powder, chocolate chips, and marshmallows layered in a pastry bag and tied with a cherry ribbon. And I tied on name tags with a little note to each person.
They’re simple and one of my favorite gifts to make for a group of people.
