Using scraps for a background.

Once in a while you actually need to use your scraps.  That folder, bin, or bag gets full!  Use those bits and pieces!  Trim them into similar shapes and create a background.

If you have bigger pieces then you can create mats or accents like the vanilla wood plank.  Now go create!

Boxes out of envelopes.

Did you know that our tools have multiple uses?  For example, the envelope punch board can also be used to create boxes.  I found a perfect tool to be used to find out what measurements were needed to create a box.  Go to http://thecraftyowl.co.uk/boxbuster/ and keep it handy.  This is awesome!  And here is what I made with it.

They are cute boxes or covers for the acetate boxes.  I glued inside a piece of designer series paper and then made the cross hatches for tic-tac-toe with washi tape.  The markers or pieces are seasonal erasers.  Decorate and embellish as needed.

Happy Crafting!

Here’s to a new start…

It’s Monday again.  I look forward to Mondays as they are a new start to the week.  For me it’s all about perspective.  That’s it.  If I think it will be bad, it probably will be.  So, here are the opportunities to get your creative mojo going.

This Saturday the 23rd from 10-10 the Mesa Fest is happening at the Yucca Mesa Community Center.  Come on out!
