Even though it is Birthday Party time around here, a celebration is a celebration right? Today for Monday Craft Madness I wanted to share a cool idea from one of Teresa Collins’ design team members Cheri Piles. She used Teresa Collins Tinsel & Company to make a beautiful non-Christmas wreath for her door….So today’s theme is:

Switch it Up

Create something unexpected. Use a themed collection to create something non-theme specific. Here’s what Cheri created:

Cheri started off with some flat wreath bases from her local craft store.

The wreath came together pretty quickly and easily here are the first steps:

  1. Spray the two bases and star ornament white
  2. Add some clear or white glitter to the smaller wreath
  3. Set all three pieces aside to dry
  4. Cut 8 strips 1 1/2″ and 8 strips 1 1/4″
  5. Cut each strip 6″ in length for a total of 16 strips each
  6. Use the Teresa Collins Stapler or another stapler to assemble your paper chain

Once your pieces are dry take some invisible thread and hang the small wreath to the center of the large base and glue your star wood ornament to the center of the small one.

Tie your ribbon on and hot glue the larger pieces onto the base. If you like a little extra bling add some stars from the sequins package to finish it off.

Jen Hadfield Homegrown | Monday Craft Madness #14

My second daughter is about to graduate from High School. I know, I know…no way can I be that old, yet I am. It’s made me pretty nostalgic lately, but my main emotion is just pride in my little Lizzie. She has worked so hard and the end is in sight. She is a pretty mellow kid and not really wanting a party, however I am planning something. So today for Monday Craft Madness I used Jen Hadfield’s Homegrown Collection to make a celebratory banner….. So today’s theme is:

Banners

Create something that you can use for a banner. These days they are not just for celebrating, Home decor is an awesome way to use home-made banners. Here’s what I created:

Luckily in this collection there is already a great banner all ready to decorate. The black background and white letters look a little chalkboard-ey but ripe for decorating.  I kind of love how it turned out. I backed each letter with some of the 6×6 paper pad and added embellishments. Check out some close ups.

The big paper clips and the gold dipped tags are so fun. I can’t wait to find other ways to use the rest of the collection!

Teresa Collins He Said She Said | Monday Craft Madness #10

Today for Monday Craft Madness I couldn’t help myself in making more than one thing. The  Teresa Collins She Said Collection to just had to much wonderfulness to choose one creation. I reached for some awesome pictures of the super cute Jovi and her 1st birthday to create two of my projects. I couldn’t even stop there, I had to make some cards as well….. So today’s theme is:

Your Choice

Create anything you love; cards, banners, decor piece, layouts – whatever your heart desires. Here’s what I created:

I used chalkboard card bases from American Crafts for the cards, it allowed me to stretch out this collection kit even further. I didn’t have to create my own bases and I only use bits of the papers and the embellishments to create these cards. Here’s a closer look:

This is one of my favorite photos from Jovi’s 1st year photo shoot. She wasn’t sure about the party hat and the cake at first, but when she realized how the cake tasted, she dove in and loved it. The pure joy on her face made me want to create a wall hanging to highlight her joy. If only I could get away with eating cake this way.

The banner was super fun and quick to make. I used a kraft banner base from American crafts and again I was able to just use bits of my beautiful patterned papers. The banner took less than an hour once I chose the items I wanted to include. Now Jovi’s mom has it hanging in her cubicle at the office and we get to look at it every day. Check out some close ups of the banner pieces:

I really had fun with this collection, I’ve seen it many times but breathing new life into it was a blast. Don’t write off old collections in your stash, you can use them to create beautiful things for your beautiful life.

Simple Stories I AM | Monday Craft Madness #8

Today’s Monday Craft Madness was a personal journey for me. When I got a first hand look at the used I AM Collection from Simple Storie to I gasped a little bit. It is so very beautiful in colors and design. Then I looked closer at some of the projects that were on display at the Craft and Hobby Association show, I had tears in my eyes. We all seem to minimize ourselves and who and what we are. This collection is so beautiful and celebrates the most important story…yours. So today’s theme is:

YOU

Create something that tells your story or celebrates you. Here’s what I created:

I am one that definitely gives myself a hard time. I enlisted help from some friends to pick a word that describes me. Wow, it’s awesome to do that from time to time. To see how others see you is a pretty awesome experience. Almost all of their responses are included on my project along with a few of my own.

I used the SN@P! cards and the embellishments for this project. I can’t say enough about the embellishments that Simple Stories is creating. This collection also has touches of gold foil all over the place. I’t so beautiful. The quotes are inspiring and something I will now be able to read every day.

Along with some pop dots, I was able to use the stickers, chipboard stickers, enamel dots and the awesome Bradz, that Simple Stories invented, to embellish my printer’s tray. I loved the banner included in the chipboard stickers and just had to add it to my project.

One of the new embellishments that Simple Stories added to this collection is their pack of Interactive Elements.

I wanted to use these on my project so badly because I love the idea of flipping, pulling and interacting with a project. Sadly the sizing didn’t work for the space I had so I created my own, with a nod to the masters. With this pocket I created I could use the tags to write some more of the words my awesome friends used to describe me.

Here’s hoping we can all remember the awesomeness we all have inside and outside. I am going to put this project on my desk at work so when I’m having a hard day I can remember how others see me and how I want to see myself.
