Which one do you like the best? Seriously, I could make these all day.
How about you? Do you love to hike, camp and find adventures?

I had some 6x8" canvas boards in my stash of crafting supplies, so I took them out and found some designer paper to use for the background. I glued the papers down before the class. This made the houses and other items easy to glue on using a glue stick.
I used an old stamping wheel with a cute set of houses on it and rolled them in black on different colored cardstock.
At church the kids cut them out and made their own neighborhoods. They could color in the white houses if they wanted and there were trees, clouds, dog houses, bushes and lamp post cut-outs for them. I did a lot of cutting beforehand to make the craft easier for some of the children.
Then I made the "Who is your neighbor" sign for them to put on their board. I was totally amazed at the creativity of the children. Each board had its own creative look to it. Some children even stood up the houses along a row for a 3-D effect. It was a lot of fun helping them to design their own neighborhood.
I think I'll keep this one around as a reminder of the great time that we shared together. :)
I love the yellows and navy blues in this card. I made a bunch of them as Thank you cards for some of my friends. They're each a little bit different.
I have wanted to make a Summer framed project for a couple of years. So I finally sat down and came up with something! I had a bunch of these 8 x 8" frames laying around (!), so I took the glass out of the frame and made this 3-D project.
I started out making the squares to fit into the frame. I wanted to have different sizes to give it some interest. There were some summer stamp sets that I definitely wanted to include. Don't you just love the fireflies from the Jars of Love set?
Jars of Love is also used for the lemonade and the flower arrangement within the heart, which is from the Swirly Bird framelits. The sailboat is from the Swirly set, too.
Which frame is your favorite? Have you ever made a collage frame using different stamp sets? I think it came out so nice, that now I want to work on a Fall one. :)

I guess it's the colors that drew me to this suite- I love the way these colors blend together- the browns, teals and greens. Then I think it's the cute images that are on the designer paper. You can cut them out and use them as embellishments on your cards and projects.
This first card, Happiness is a Cup of Coffee shared with a Friend, has some Espresso designer paper as the background and then the two cups of coffee that are "shared" together are set on a green striped banner to make them stand out. I added the straw, sugar cubes and a button to give this card it's cute factor. I put this card idea together myself.
here, it will give you the instructions on how to make them.

It has cute images of paintbrushes, pens, scissors, twine and of course, a rubber stamp! It also has 3 cute sayings, but the one that I love the most is, "Do something creative every day."
The stamp image and saying really make it look crafty. Add the bow or a button for the perfect embellishment. What a great reminder to be creative, don't you think?
This week I made 3 cards featuring the Daisy Delight stamp set. I wanted to show the ladies who come over to stamp with me the diversity of the Daisy stamp. And I am loving this set.
Here is Card #2 (Card #1 is in the previous post), made with Bermuda Bay cardstock and accented with some sponging.
