a scrappy wall hanging

It was my Gran's birthday and I made up this cute little wall hanging of the boys for them to give to her. It was super easy! I took an 8.5" x 11" piece of chipboard and covered it with cardstock. Use coordinating PP to embellish the sides, add photo's and those cute little Heidi Swapp photo corners, add some stickers and chipboard letters for embellishment (I used boy 97% complete stickers from 7 gypsies and MM chipboard "boy" letters) When you are happy with the results~ use your handy dandy hole punch and hammer (in your tool kit) and punch two holes in the top for hanging your ribbon. I used 3 Bugs in a Rug designer brads "Seeing Stars" to attach my ribbon knots through the hole. Hope you like!

Fall Card fronts

Well, I've been playing catch up a little...organizing my some more..seems that part is never ending! But I did get something crafty done~ I stamped up these little bears playing in the leaves and made some fall card fronts for a swap coming up. The object of the card front swap is to design just the front on a piece of cardstock. I keep mine in a little deco box and when I need, say a bday card..I pull out a bday card front and adhere it to the front of a card base...easy peasy! Allie gave me this idea awhile back, I think its great! Cheaper shipping when doing swaps and takes up less room in your card storage.
