Project Catch Up!

I decided that since I have so many projects that I haven't posted and wanted to I would just do one post with a whole bunch of them.  If there are any projects you see here that you would like to see more of then please let me know.  I am happy to share more details and pictures.

1. Calender Gift

I made this cute little calendar as a donation for my work golf tournament.  It's something that I wanted to try for quite some time.  The calendar itself is a free download from Heidi Swapp's blog and the rest is a mix of things that I had on hand.  The majority of the embellishments are from Close to my Heart and I bound it all with my Cinch.

 
 
 
 
2. Flip Stand

I knew when I saw the Designed Decor Flip Stand that I had to make something fun with it.  I don't have a lot of pictures of my older kids around the house so I thought this would be a fun way to show them off.  I used the CTMH Cricut cartridges to cut out many of the pages. 


 
3. Cards

I don't make very many cards but when I do I end up spending a lot of time on them.  Here are a few of them.

4. Convention Album Contest
 
I can't believe that I never posted this layout.  I truly love it.  Every time I look at it I fall in love with it.  This was the first layout that I made for the album contest at the Close to my Heart convention last summer.  I spent a lot of time on this layout and it really was the best one that I submitted.  I love the little shaker windows and the fringe that I cut by hand.  This is the one and only layout that I've ever sewn on.  I really like the look that gives but it still doesn't inspire me to spend the time to do more sewing.  Maybe one day I will do a little more sewing, but who knows.

 

Here is another layout that I submitted.  I love this one also but it doesn't have the same detail as the previous one.

 

5. Scrapbooking Me
 
I've recently completed a few projects that document me.  I've had a lot of fun doing this and truly believe that we all need to remember to tell our own story.  I think I might do a separate blog on this subject but for now here is a small glimpse of one of the projects that I finished recently. 
 
 
 
6. Home Décor

I've been making a lot of home décor items lately.  These are all inspired by Pinterest.  I don't spend a lot of time on Pinterest but once you start looking around there it's really hard to stop.  I have quite a list of things that I want to make on my Pinterest boards.

I didn't really intend to make this ribbon wreath but I bought the frame to make a Christmas ball wreath and then when I started I realized that this frame wouldn't work.  Then I had this frame and had to do something with it.  The addition of the paper flowers and the saying came after it was all done and I wanted to add a little something to it.  They are from the retired Sparkle and Shine kit.

 
I love these glass blocks.  This was one of the first things that I pinned.  I've made two of them now and really want to keep making them but don't have anywhere else to put them.  They're really easy to make and I did them in about an hour each. 
 
 

7. Rock the Block

Well, I've had these blocks for quite some time now.  I had some ideas on what to do with them but I just wasn't inspired enough to create anything before now.  After Christmas we bought a new tv for our basement.  Once it was all set up with the new Ikea cabinet I started to accessorize it.  I needed a little something to sit on my books and then it came to me.  I was inspired by a photo in one of the Idea Books which had the blocks in a row tied with a ribbon.  I also had these new family photos that I hadn't used yet so it worked perfectly.
 


 
That's it for now. I probably still have a bunch of others that I haven't taken photos of yet. I'll try to get to them soon. I'd love to hear what projects inspire you and what you would be interested in seeing here. I appreciate any feedback and questions.
