Thoughts for Sunday


Believe in good things to come . . . 

This little video/story has been one of my favorites.  It reminds me of when my husband and I were first married and going to college with 2 little ones.  We drove old cars too.  :)

DT Post by Gwen - 4th of July Gable Box


Wow I can't believe it is almost July!!  Where did the time go?  I remember when I was a kid summer lasted a lot longer.  I have so much going on this summer before I know it it will be over:(  Hi everyone, this is Gwen from This and That by Gwen with a quick and easy project for you.

For my project today I used two different files from the Silhouette Store, the no glue gable box by LW and the cute little Sam by Pebbles in my Pocket.  The tag was made with the Tiny Tags Metal Dies and stamped with the Tiny Tags 3 stamp set.  I tied it on with Scarlet Red crinkle ribbon and  Twine, all these products are from My Craft Spot.

Guest Designer - Diane from 1CardCreator!


Hi All, my name is Diane AKA 1CardCreator, I write a card making blog.  I am so excited to be the guest designer here at My Craft Spot, I love these awesome stamps, and I am honored to be with such talented designers here at their blog.  I do a lot of digital hybrid stamping and these stamps are the perfect way to add a stylish sentiment!


  I made this 5 x 7 card using one of the 11 awesome stamps that came in the Birthday Wishes clear stamp set.  I really love how these stamps are perfect for mixing with my digital printing,  they take to ink really well, I used Memento tuxedo black ink, I love the clean crisp look.  


I printed the background paper from Gecko Galz ATC Papers In Dreams along with the image from the Ever After set on to Staples photo paper.  Those life like flowers were printed from the Optic Illusions Measure of Time set  that I printed then cut out.  I mounted the stamped sentiment and image on some Night of Navy card stock   I used a little foam pad to lift the sentiment up a bit.  Then I added a little bling with some Waterfall Stickles on her dress and some Cinnamon Stickles on the flower buttons.  Then I printed my envelope liner in the matching paper.

Thanks so much for inviting me to be your guest, I would love for you to stop by my 1CardCreator blog and see a few more cards I made using this beautiful Birthday Wishes clear stamp set. and also to enter my giveaway, so generously sponsored by My Craft Spot.  Thanks so much,  ~Diane

3-D Guitar box!




My daughter and I had so much fun making guitar boxes.  Her guitar actually turned out better than mine . . .  I just haven't had a chance to snap a picture of it yet.  She stores her guitar picks in her box.  How fun is that?!



I used Natural jute twine for the guitar strings.

 
I cut this sweet tag out using the Tiny Tags metal die set.


The cut file is from SVG cuts.


I thought it would be fun to see this sentiment each time the box is opened. 


The music sentiment and Treble cleff stamp are from the new Music stamp set.

Happy crafting!
