Homemade 4th of July Projects!

Hey everybody! I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. Today I have a few homemade 4th of July projects to share with you. My family and I are hosting a huge 4th of July party. (see invites below) I decided to make a few of the decorations myself.

The 3 buckets I had purchased at the Target dollar bins years ago and just never knew exactly what to do with them. Well... add some color paper, SU's star punch, and a few sticks and whola' instant homemade 4th of July center piece. These are now sitting on my dining room table and look oh so cute!

The paper wreath idea came from Family Fun magazine. Although I added the circle/star in the middle and the ribbon around the cones. I really like how this turned out. It is a wonderful homemade 4th of july project and is now hanging on my front door.

These are easy homemade 4th of July projects. But they do take some time. If you have any questions please feel free to email me. The link is in my sidebar.

As always thank you for spending some of your time here. I hope I was able to inspire you to create something homemade for your 4th of July celebrations.

Baby Baptism

Hello!! I hope you all are having a terffic day. The card above was made for my baby nephew, Carter. My brother and his family were up visiting this past week. They asked me to be Carter's Godmother! So right away I began planning my trip and making his card. I have had this stamp set from Verve for awhile now... but just used it for the first time on this card. Super cute!

Thanks for stopping by to see me. ~:0)

It's a party!

Hey it's a party!! Actually it's my 4th of July party that I made these invites for. I used the criss cross card style with a pull out section with the info on it. You know what was the hardest part? Trying to match the blue color on my printer to match the paper. Not bad eh? LOL

As always if you want to know a certain item, tool, or want a little personal how to just email me! The link is in my sidebar.

It's official! School is out for the summer. My crafting may dwindle a bit while I run around trying to keep up with my son's activities. I'll post as much as I can. Wishes for a beautiful, and fun summer!!
