As summer draws closer, so does kids’ birthday party season. I have a great way to get yourself prepared with a ready made card and tag set using a simple 6 x 6 patterned paper pad and a fun interactive die. Patterned paper pads are great because you have everything you need to make quick DIY crafts with little effort. All the fun colors and even some sentiments are right there for you to cut and paste! For my projects today, I used the Sizzix Stephanie Barnard Framelits Card Drop In-Thank You die set along with the Pebbles Happy Hooray 6×6 paper pad. I also used some large and small pre-made white tags.
There are some really fun techniques for stamping out there, but by far, my favorite is masking. I love that you can have the look of depth and volume on the front of a card, but still have it lie flat for easy mailing. For my project today, I’ll be doing a simple masking technique using a floral stamp from Hampton Art’s Clear Layer Flower Amaze.
Hi, my name’s Crystal! I’m a wife and stay at home mom to two kids, E & O and we’re expecting baby P very soon. I have been crocheting ever since my oldest was born. I had tried to learn for years by reading books with little success, but then one day I came across tutorials on the internet and it finally all made sense! I’ve never looked back.
I started my blog, Marching North to share what I’ve come up with, as well as things I’ve made following patterns I’ve found online from all the super talented crocheters out there (giving them all due credit of course!)
Easter is right around the corner! My kids have been making me aware of that for a couple of weeks now. My daughter is a big fan of rainbows and colorful things so I thought this rainbow Easter bonnet hat would be perfect for her. I imagine she’ll be wearing it any time it’s cold enough, not just at Easter time! It makes me feel so good when I make them something and they actually want to wear it!
