Crafting Fun

Last Saturday I got together with a group of friends for a day of crafting. It was so much fun and very inspirational. Each of us brought a project for the group to do, and spent the day being creative. It was relaxing and wonderful! Here's what we created.
The little frame was stamped and colored with PrismaColor pencils, then a little Distress Inks rubbed in the background.
The pumpkin was glittered with glass glitter shards and ultrafine to fill in. The leaves were 2 fabric leaves glued together with a wire in between, and the tops glittered, and some gold wire coiled for tendrils. When it was dry, we used a craft pick to make holes and glued in the leaves and tendrils.
The sunflowers are made from grungepaper, with grungeboard for the stems., colored with Distress Inks, the centers are chip board colored and stamped. Everything was assembled with a hot glue gun with bamboo skewers to create "pics" , arranged in a great tin pot, and embellished with ribbon and a tag.
The notecard folder has little pockets inside to hold 4 notecards and envelopes. It is so easy. Cover two pieces of lightweight cardboard with pretty paper, adhere them to some contrasting paper for a spine, leaving about a 3/4" gap, cover the inside with coordinating paper and create matching notecards.
Every project turned out great. Thank you to my friends who made the day so much fun!
Happy Creating,

What great fun you must have had! All four of these creations are just darling and I'm sure you were all delighted with the "goodies" you took home.

Love the frame. Was it done on wood?

Just a wood frame stamped with archival black and colored with Prisma colored pencils. Then I used a little Distress Ink around the design. Very easy and versatile because lots of different stamps look good.
