Angry Birds

I saw this post today. As a fan of the game I had to make my own card following the video tutorial. I don't have all of the punches and dies that were needed to make this card. However, I easily adapted using the Cricut. Using Design Studio I even made the cut on the red circle.

To My Peeps

Today was at school we had our Easter egg hunt and party since we are now on a combined spring break / Easter vacation until April 10, YAY! I made these gifts of peeps s'mores last night to give out to coworkers and friends. I got the idea from here. Close To My Heart has a stamp set My Peeps. If I didn't let this project got to the last minute I would have liked to decorate the clear box with stamped images. Ah well...

I haven't been crafting for awhile because I've had bingo on the brain. Now that the bingo fundraiser for my school is over and I'm on break I'll get to have some free time to create!

In the Close To My Heart family Krista is like a sister since we both share the same upline ("mom"). Krista has been an inspiration to me with her artwork, as well as how she runs her Close To My Heart business.

Paper Cupcake

Recently I purchased The Happy Birthday to You SVG Kit. This is the first project I made from the kit. It is a cupcake for my nephew Zack's birthday. I'm not 100% happy with it. I accidentally glued paper down on the wrong side and I was a little impatient with letting the liquid glass dry. However, I'm sure Zack won't mind. After all, what matters is what's on the inside, right?

Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss

Dr. Seuss was born on March 2. Many schools participate in "Read Across America Day" to honor Dr. Seuss and promote reading for enjoyment to their students. All this week in my classroom we've been reading Dr. Seuss books. Tomorrow is an In service Day so we ended the week with a snack of green eggs and ham and special crafts. Since The Lorax is being released this weekend I choose that as a read aloud and found the project ideas here. This blog is a treasure!
