Card Monday-Another Shadow Box Card

24 Sep

Here is my third Lawn Fawn shadow box card.  It is similar to the one I shared three weeks ago, but this time I added a bunch of black dots to the stamped images.  This is definitely my favorite so far.
Supplies: Stamps and Dies: Lawn Fawn; Markers: Zig Clean Color; Misc.: Card Stock
See you tomorrow for a layout share!  🙂


Kids Craft Friday-Bird Canvas

21 Sep

This is an art project the bigger kids did for school.  It is based off of this YouTube video.  It was a more involved project, so I was very glad to have my mom’s help as an extra set of hands!
The supplies were minimal, and we happened to already have everything we needed, so that was a real plus.
The canvasses we used were 5×7, and you could put the bird horizontally or vertically.  The only thing we added was to print the free template included with the video-super easy.
Here is how the pieces turned out:
I really love the finished pieces, and I do recommend the project, just make sure you can set aside at least 1 1/2 hrs. to complete it.
Until next time, have a great weekend!

Congratulations Card

18 Sep

Today’s card is one of my favorites in a long time.  I made this one in celebration of my parents’ new place!
Supplies: Patterned Paper: Lawn Fawn; Dies and Stamp: Lawn Fawn; Glossy Accents: Ranger; Wink of Stella; Other: Card Stock
I added Wink of Stella to the mountain tops, and Glossy Accents to the hearts.
I was going for a fall-in-Colorado feel, and I think it works.  🙂
I am entering this card into the Lawn Fawnatics challenge #37:
I used a bunch of older dies and a stamp, but I used the new Knit Picky Fall paper pad for my patterned paper.
Have a great day!  🙂

Card Monday-Another Shadow Box Card

Here is my second shadow box card.  It is similar to the one I shared two weeks ago, but this time I went with a blue tone.  SO fun!  🙂
Supplies: Stamps and Dies: Lawn Fawn; Markers: Zig Clean Color; Misc.: Card Stock
There will be many more shadow box cards in my future-can’t wait to make some Christmas ones!  🙂

Kids Craft Friday-1st Day Of School Art

14 Sep

Today’s project was made a few weeks ago, and is based off of this YouTube video.
The kids watercolored the backgrounds, and then used Sharpies to draw in the dandelion.
Because it was for the first day of school, I also had the kids write (or tell me what to write) what they are looking forward to for this school year, and we attached the words to the backs of the paintings.
Here is how they turned out:
This was a fun and easy project to do for the first day of school, and they turned out great!

Pinterest Thursday-Freezer Garlic Bread

13 Sep

Last week I posted a pizza pasta recipe from Pinterest, and today I am posting the side we have been eating with it-garlic bread!
This super simple recipe is so easy, and very tasty.  I also really love that we can make bunches ahead of time, and then only pull what we need out of the freezer.
This works especially well with the day-old french bread we can usually get from WalMart for around sixty cents.
This garlic bread recipe is SO easy and it's even freezer-friendly!

I follow the recipe pretty closely-the only thing I omit is the garlic, which you can totally leave in if you want.
I hope you try this one-it is definitely worth it, and goes great with the pizza pasta recipe I shared last week!
