Clip Boards

I have spent my whole Saturday covering Clip Boards for my craft sale.  I am sick from the smell of Modge Podge!  Considering I spent the whole day doing this I didn't get many done.  I had to redo a couple because the paper tore.  I didn't remember them such a problem to make before but they were today!  I will post some pictures probably tomorrow.  Some are still drying.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!

3x3 Halloween Card

Another easy one here.  Black card stock, Skull 3D glittered sticker I bought from Michael's.  Card stock is cut 6x3 folded in half.  Inside I added a 2.75x2.75 white card stock with sponged edges.

So Simple and So Cute

Aren't these cute.  One of the easiest cards I have made.  Standard A2 black cards stock size card.  I used large glue dots and large Wiggle Eyes and that is it for the front.  Inside I added a piece of white card stock and sponged the edges.  Also sponged the edges of the white envelope.

Pumpkin Art

I have a niece that I have always called Pumpkin. She is currently living seven hours away in Tallahassee, while attending Florida State for Graduate School.  When I saw this idea on several Pinterest Boards I immediately thought of her and wanted to make her one.  The picture was the first one I made.  I had the frame, paper, and glue, so off to Dollar Tree I went and purchased two pumpkins.  I placed the paper under the mat but on top of the glass, then used foam glue and attached the pumpkin haves to the paper.  I was so happy with it and set it up on my fireplace to dry.  A hour later of noticed the glue was running onto the paper and mat!  Needless to say the mat got messed up.  I have sanded it but it shows a little.  Anyway, the other day I was pulling out my fall decorations and while picking up a pumpkin it fell apart in my hands splitting right in half.  I took that as a sign that I needed to make another one for her.  So the single pumpkin picture is my second attempt with this simple picture.  Just remember to lay flat to dry!

Great day today, this afternoon I went to a wedding and came home and finished making crayon wreaths and pencil holders for the craft fair.  They just need bows!  I will be posting directions tomorrow or Monday for these projects.

For Sale:  Used Cricut Expression and some cartridges.  The machine is used but in great condition.  It is one of three machines that I own and honestly I just am running out of room in my craft room.  I have been wanting a Imagine since before it was developed,  I thought it would be a perfect machine and it is for me!  One machine is enough for me.  I will be selling cartridges too.  They are linked to my Gypsy so they will not be able to be linked to another Gypsy.  I have a list here on my blog but it is not complete so if you don't see what you are looking for just ask.  I will try to get it updated tomorrow or Monday.  I am selling the Expression for $100 (firm) and any shipping charges.  Cartridge prices vary.  Let me know if you are interested,  Thanks so much
