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

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!
