You Can Be Crafty!

Hello on this beautiful day!  I had several people who have asked how can I get started without spending a ton of money.  I took a good look of what I know I will need every time I get started with a project.  As you will see in the video that I put together there is two packages.  What I included will help you to start building your supplies and then you can add as you go.  I’m really looking forward to your thoughts and definitely crafting with you.

 

The $50 kit I put together is approximately a $75 value package which includes:

Snail Adhesive

Archival Black Ink Pad

1 additional ink pad of your choice

1 Clear Block D

1 package of Dimensionals

1 Package of Whisper White envelopes

1 Package of Thick Whisper White Cardstock

1 package of multi-color pack of Cardstock of your choice

and a gift of 1 spool of ribbon (varies)

Taxes and Shipping not included.


 

The $100 Kit I put together is approximately a $145 value which includes:

Everything from the $50 package and

1 additional Ink Stamp of your choice

1 Stampin’ Up! Trimmer

1 package of Designer Series Paper of your choice

1 package of Glue Dots

1 package of embellishments (varies)

Taxes and shipping not included.




With either of these packages you will be on your way!

Heartfelt Blooms and a Quick Calendar

Hi everyone!!  What a wonderful day it has been, I thought about getting home from work today just to upload my new video.  Every time I think I got this video process down I learn something new which is awesome, just means eventually I might be a pro lol.  So I did a video of a project I shared at my open house yesterday which was great fun, we did three projects and tonight I’m sharing how to do a simple pedestal card.  After I made it I thought of lots of things you can actually do with it, for example instead of a mini-calendar what about a cute pictures of your kids, spouse, pets?  Or how about making a little pocket on it to add affirmations, quotes or something to remind you of how great you are?  Don’t forget you can get Heartfelt Blooms free with any $50 purchase!!

Here is the video to make it, but I challenge you to try something new and share it with me.  My juices just started flowing.    This week-end I had a drawing for those who attended my Open House, well how about this at the end of this week I will give away the same set I gave away yesterday?  Post a project on my facebook page at this link https://www.facebook.com/craftydreamsdotcom/ or comment on this page.  I will pick a Random name next monday giving everyone at least a week!

 

Ok so to make the Calendar pedestal you need the following:

4.25” x 11” long I used Melon Mambo scoring at 5.5”

4” x 4” of Melon Mambo scoring at .5”, 2” and 3.5”

4” x 5.25 of Whisper White Cardstock

Melon Mambo Ink

Clear faceted gems

and your choice of what you are matting, I did a calendar with Lime Twist but I recommend stay with the same color you made the pedestal with.   Please follow along on the tutorial and while you are there please subscribe to get my latest videos!

January Paper Pumpkin 2018

Yesterday I received my “Calypso Coral” boxes in the mail.  I have been waiting all week for them.  I absolutely love getting Paper Pumpkin, it’s so much fun to be surprised each month with a new project.  The best part it comes with everything you need right there is the beautiful little package.  This month it was for Valentines but with a different spin on the colors.  Absolutely adorable!!

Take a look at the project I worked on this morning.
