VINTAGE Inspired Monogram Bracelet

I made this for a friend for her birthday. I loved the look of the mixed beads and items for the bracelet and thought these monogram charms were perfect. 

I hope she loves it as much as I do. 

I found all the times at Hobby Lobby. They make crafting so simple.
 Love that store!!!!!

JEWELRY- CUFF BRACELET

 I scored 'big' at Hobby Lobby this past weekend when I came across this cuff for less than $2 and the adorable metal plate for less than $1.  So simple and adorable. I am almost embarrassed to admit I made it... kinda. 


Valentine Card Swap- 2018

                                            
Here are a few of the Valentine Card Swap cards I received. I started hosting a themed card swap in my home (late 2017) every 6-8 wks. 5-8 lovely local women attend and I provide a soup/ salad lunch and a make-n-take craft project. We enjoy the fellowship, sharing ideas, and laughter. The plan is to have a full box of various handmade cards by the end of the year.  So far so good, My box is actually 1/2 filled already.

CELLO GOODY BAGS- HEARTINI STAMPIN' UP!

I am using up some SU! products pieces I have had sitting in a storage box in my craft studio. I love the way these adorable long skinny ( non traditional size) cello bags turn out. They are perfect for  a little paper shreds and a nail polish along with a rolled gift certificate for bridesmaids for a wedding. Maybe just the nail polish and a nail file for a simple bachelorette party gift.  

I stamped the heartini martini  from the Making Spirits Bright SU set onto whisper white and cut out. Glued to the foil edge heart. 

I colored the heartini image using 2 shades of pink and added a dimensional heart sticker to fit perfectly on the heart.

STAMPIN' UP! HEDGEHUGS- VALENTINE



I found these cute heart shaped cards and envelopes at JoAnn's (Miss Sparkle Line) for $1.99. I knew I wanted to add either my new  hedgehogs or pandas to them. I went for the adorable hedgehogs and I am so happy with the way they turned out. I added black and white polkadot wash tape to the heart card front. Wrapped some pink vintage twine and attached with glue dot. I stamped the hedgehog image in black and then punched out with 2" circle punch. I attached the hedgehog with dimensional and added adorable puffy heart stickers to his chest and to the flower.  

Simple. Adorable. Fun.

VALENTINE PHOTO BOARD- UPCYCLED

I found this weekly organizer  board at Hobby Lobby for less than $5  way before Christmas. I have been trying to figure out what to do with it. Finally,  as I was taking down my Christmas stuff and  decorating for Valentine's I decided to cover the letters up with heart stickers from the Dollar Tree, add a curly ribbon left over form Christmas decor, and add some of my recently developed photos. 

I love how it turned out! 
Total cost of this bargain project is $6 
(not including photo development). 
Another simple, cute, inexpensive decoration.
