This is a quick post, it's currently 2:12 a.m. here...*yawn*... Since I returned home from vacation, I haven't been able to get into my craftin' spot until 8:30 this evening. Lots of laundry to do....uggh....
Any-hoo - It's Our Creative Corner Challenge time again! This week our challenge is hosted by Sharon Wheet of Designs by Sharon. She is having us make girly things with ribbons, bling and home-made paper flowers....right up my alley.... I made a quick adorable card for a birthday party my daughter is going to this weekend, but alas - I ruined it. I wasn't paying attention, started cleaning up, and absentmindedly placed my stamp container on top of the slowly drying Stickles. Then hubby came home, we chatted and I cleaned up for bed so I wouldn't wake him later. When I returned to photograph it...an hour later...I discovered a glittery mess. I was going to just re-make it, but my printer wouldn't work for my vintage digi. Then I was frustrated! So I gave up on that and started a project I'd been wanting to do for a while...a spring wreath for my front door... I changed the original plans...coffee filters...to fit in the challenge and ~ voila! Shabby, doily covered wreath!
excuse the photo quality - it's late and this doesn't fit in my light box!
I used MANY Spellbinders die sets for this, Large Oval & Large Scalloped Oval, Floral Doily Accents and Floral Doily Motifs...the latter 2 were gifts from Terre and Stacy - thanks again ladies!... The wreath is made up of individual flowers made from the doily dies. A total of 28 flowers, so 168 die cuts to be exact...my Cuttlebug was smokin'!... Here's a close-up of what they look like. They are really easy to make, just time consuming.
