Sorry no posts lately….my sweetie and I were on a Caribbean cruise, celebrating our 30th Anniversary! Oh my goodness, the time has flown by! Our anniversary gives our age away! LOL (Wait we were 12 when we got married, now I remember!! LOL)

I will share with you some crafty things I made before we left on our trip.

I am SO INTO BURLAP these days!!!! LOVE that stuff and it’s so inexpensive!

This is a wreath I made for our front door. I took the wire from 2 clothes hangers and formed it into a heart. In hind sight, I would go buy some wire so it is one continuous piece. Then I took a bunch of 3″ burlap strips and thread the wire in and out of the burlap so it gathers. SUPER SIMPLE to make!

The red vinyl was made from my Silhouette Cameo (awesome Chrismas gift from hubby!). The font is Skinny Jeans from Miss Tina’s Font.

I wrapped a birthday gift in this. I can’t even remember where I found the You Tube video on making the flower, but the lady in the video made it using 1″ ribbon. I used burlap instead. I did use Stampin’ Up DSP for the leaves (just hand-cut them). The DSP is called First Edition. I ran a coffee bag through the Big Shot with the Houndstooth embossing folder.
The last one was another birthday gift. I wrapped it in plain ol’ brown paper that you use when you mail things. I put a strip of quilting batting around it, then a burlap strip, and finally some twine around that. I made the same flowers as I did in the above photo, but this time using a strips of batting. I made a burlap flower and that tutorial can be found HERE.
There is so much going on around here! Lots of stamping classes PLUS our daughter’s wedding in March! Soon I will be posting wedding projects!! STAY TUNED!
