- Cardstock of desired color and size (I cut mine to 6 1/4 by 8)
- Scrap booking paper
- Paper doily
- Buttons of desired colors
- Liquid and stick glue
- Sentiment stamp (I used a "make your own sentiment" set by Martha Stewart)
- Shape punchout (I really would have loved to use banners, but alas, I don't have any)
I'm not quite sure of the cost for each card as I had all of the materials at home already.
First is the doily. I was originally going to stamp directly onto the doily but I smeared it :( So I tried to cover it up with another doily.
|If you look closely, you can see the second doily/the messup :(|
The blue paper that was used already had the lace pattern along the edges, making it extremely ideal!
Notice how my two themes, the doily and buttons, were both integrated into it exactly as I wanted it to be.
The second thing that I did today was make a weight loss tracker using decorative glass pebbles and a few clear cups in different shapes. I kept it simple and didn't put any lettering on the cups as to their purpose since both the GG and I know what they are for and this way they look a bit more decorative on our kitchen counter.
This one is GG's
The view of mine from the top...so many pebbles!
And while I'm typing all of this up, check out who kept me company.
