Couple Quick Updates

In my posts I have been stating which value pack that my "The Paper Company" cardstock is coming from, I will no longer be doing that.  So many of the different packs have a similar color and I want to take them out of the packaging and group the similar colors together for storage.  So, from now on when I use this particular paper I will just state that it came from "The Paper Company's value packs" or simply "The Paper Company".  I'm sorry if this is an inconvenience to anyone, but I need to get some better organization going for myself.

My next update I stated in another post, we will be going on vacation next week back to the states to visit family and will be gone through most of August.  I may post updates as to what we are up to or any craft shopping I do but I, most likely, won't be posting any new projects.  If I do something with my sister-in-law then I may be able to post it but we will see.  So followers, please don't leave me! I promise I will be back at the end of August and back to posting regularly!!!!

And my last but the best news of all, we found out today that we are expecting our 3rd and last child in April of next year!!!  The whole family is very excited!!!  My husband wants a 3rd son, our oldest David and I want a little girl and our 2 year old wants a baby cow LOL!!  

Lots of excitement around the Sharp house!!!

Happy Crafting!!!!

Dragon Cricut Cut

This is just a dragon cut that my son David asked me to "make" for him.  It is from the "Designer's Calendar" Cricut cartridge.  I used a piece of 6x6 red cardstock.  It was from The Paper Company's Heritage Color Sheets.  I selected the dragon to cut and then I selected the "fit to page" button on my Cricut Expression to get the biggest cut possible with the size paper that I was using.
*Note:  If you are making a cut using the "fit to page" button that has layers, make sure you note the size so you can set your size dial for the layers so they will fit properly.
Happy Crafting!!!!

Altered Bird Cage

This is one really made me think outside the box.  I wanted to create a 3D item, and this is what I ended up coming up with.

I used the Tim Holtz Alterations Sizzix Bigz Caged Bird Die to create this.  I cut the cage 4 times, the bird once and the wing twice out of medium weight chipboard.  Then I painted the 4 cages on both sides with Rusty Hinge Distress Paint from Tim Holtz and sprayed them with some Sunflower Glimmer Mist by Tattered Angels.
I glued the sides of the cages together with some Scotch Quick Dry Tacky Adhesive and just held them until it was dry and just did that for all 4 sides.  Then I, very gently bent in the tops of the bird cages (I cut off the little bump that is on top of the hanging whole) and used the Scotch glue again to glue them together.  I also used some Tim Holtz jump rings to help hold the tops together until the glue was dry and holding.  Then I use another jump ring through the wholes on the top to hold them together and to attach the swivel clasp to.


Time to Create a Unique View

This is an altered canvas that I created for Diemond Dies' Design Team call.  It was my first big mixed media project and I absolutely love how it turned out!!!!

I got lots of different close up pics.

I just love that clock piece in the corner!

This view finder die is a must have, it was so much fun to use!  I cut it in black chipboard and then again in chipboard covered in white paper.  I then took the squares from the black one that I cut out and put them in the white one and it actually looks like a view finder disc!!

Don't forget the sides of your canvases!

So pretty!

The arrow is pointing to the way to read the words for the title of the canvas, completely unintentional.

Love those butterflies.  I got these in a swap but I know you can find them on Etsy!

Well I hope you enjoyed my pics, if you have any questions please just ask.  As you will see in future posts I did end up making the team.  Yay me!!  It's my very first DT so it has been super exciting!!!!  Dee, the …
