Water Bottles

Lauren and I whipped these bottles out last night. Savanna is singing in the New Mexico All State Choir this weekend. I wanted to make a personalized water bottle for the kids who made the choir from the Moriarty - Edgewood school district.
They are super simple to make. Just cut a strip of Background and Texture paper that’s wide enough to cover the label of the water bottle. Savanna had typed out the names of the kids and printed them on computer paper. Then Lauren and I just glued them to the BG&T and then used packaging tape to attach then to the bottle. Simple and the kids love them!

Felicity Collection

I’ve had these papers sitting around, and have been itching to use them. It took me a long time to find pictures to use, I stumbled across pictures I’d taken at my niece, Kristen’s wedding. Her wedding was very elegant, and these papers don’t capture that, but I think they did bring out the earthy tones of the location.

If you love the Felicity Collection papers you can still get them on my Close To My Heart website

Savanna’s Room

Savanna decided last summer that she wanted her room decorated in a
Paris theme.
Thanks to Mrs Persival (art teacher) and her hours of painting with Savanna
over the summer break.
Tonight we put the finishing touch on the wall…. The long awaited clocks!
These clocks have been working out in mine and Savanna’s heads for a long time. And today I bit the bullet and just did it.
Thank you Erin for the encouragement and advice on cutting vinyl on the Cricut.
And thanks to Scott for spotting me as I climbed up on the stool
and helping me get everything straight.

Little Blue Card

I received a sweet little Christmas card from my sister this year, and it inspired me to create this little blue card. 4X4.5 I used Heavenly Blue cardstock, and just a small scrap from my Topstitch paper pack. I broke out the new Togetherness stamp set D1402 (which I really love) and Pewter Designer Brads Z1146. I’ve actually had the brads for awhile, but just couldn’t bring myself to use them, as they are so beautiful. I had planned on putting them on a scrapbook page because, in theory, that way I could keep them forever. But they seemed so perfect for this card that I just had to use a few of them. Not to worry, I still have plenty left for a scrapbook page or two.
I also broke out my new Piercing Tool Kit Z1114. I’ve had the CTMH piercing tool for years, it was not as sharp as it use to be, and it was getting some glue residue on it. I love the new pad that comes with the tool now. I’m sure it’s going to always have to be right at hand on my craft table!
