Who knew these bathroom tissue holders would end up making some cool stuff?!!
I made some game system (PSP) invitations with the roll. I then made the invitations out of tags and placed them inside the pocket. They were so fun to make.....better yet, they were inexpensive to make and I am definitely being resourceful!
When I find or see new designs I get so inspired that I just have to try making them myself. This is just what I did with these nifty holders! They are the perfect thing to use when you don't exactly know what to give as a gift!!
p.s. I am also experimenting with my newest gadget...can you guess which one it is from the pictures?
It's that time of the year again when mother's (including me) are getting ready for another school year. By now, most-if you are an early bird like me-have already purchased the kids' school supplies, uniforms and backpacks. If not, well- you are cutting it short, but still have time. If after all the chaos and expenses you still feel unaccomplished and like taking on a challenge? Well, ...here is your answer!
I made these for my colleague, Marisa. She wanted me to create some "welcome back" gifts for her friends, who also happen to be teachers. I hadn't worked on paper mache products before so this was a new challenge for me. I was excited to see the end result. I hope you like them as much as I loved and enjoyed making them.
I can't take credit for this nifty idea. I found it in one of the blogs I follow.....I LOVE this site! Click here to see their version of this project. I was so impressed with how simple they are to make. Since I couldn't get enough with one...I got carried away and made a lot more!!! These are perfect gifts to give to anyone!!
I made these for my two colleagues, Adriana and Rocio, who will sadly be moving back to their hometown with their family. I thought it was a nice "good luck" gift and something to start them off at their new campus! We'll miss you ladies!
These are the best!!! I loved making them!! Thanks to Kerry's Paper Crafts, a blog I've been following, I was able to recreate my own!! My only problem has been finding the mini pens. I've tried EVERY possible store that could carry them and I have had no luck. As a crafter and educator you learn to improvise-so that's what I did. Well, tried anyway. I purchased some mini pens but quickly found out they were to thick to fit through the pen holder (I already had the one shown on the picture). I still used the ones I purchased but since they referenced Staples in the site, I'll be buying them from them when I go to San Antonio in two weeks! That will save me shipping fees! =)
Aside from that little glitch, they are so cute, simple, and best of all- fun to make!! Thanks for the ideas!
Last year I got to participate in CK's Summer Camp and this year I'm at it again!! I've been very busy completing my Disney Album but I took the time to create this layout from the Flag Ceremony section. I think I earned my badge today.
Every year I always purchase news hair bows for the girls and every year they always end up costing me a pretty penny (especially for their uniforms at the beginning of the year). Sometimes I also have a hard time finding bows that match their shirts, outfits, or dresses. To try to solve that dilemma and to help myself keep those costs down, I am going to start making them myself! After all, they are not that difficult to make as I thought they would be and inexpensive to make! So here are the first set of bows I made!!
This is the third card I made using the ideas presented on the Card Making with Cricut book. As you can see I used a Harley-Davidson theme to create it using the gift card template. I then finished the project by placing a gift card also by H-D inside.
I started this blog because I love to create and use different mediums. This site serves as a creative outlet for me.
So, if I am creating scrapbooks or other elements that inspire me, I might as well take pictures and share them with others. What good is an idea if it isn't shared?
So enjoy my little corner of the internet.
