Cute Octopus

I found this octopus in a copy of Family Fun magazine. I made one for my daughter and she loves it, so I made one for two of her friends also. They are made using a tennis ball, yarn and googly eyes, so they're super cheap and super cute! Click here for instructions on how you can make your own!

Happy crafting!

Summer's Frame

This was made for a 3-year-old girl. I used chunky glitter on the chipboard letters and I love how it looks!

Things To Do

I found these ideas in my Stampin' Up catalog. This first one is styrofoam balls with felt flowers attached onto them with brads! So easy and pretty:
This is a framed picture made of different little squares. It's so cute, I'm going to have to try it:

Latest Project

I made this frame for a friend of mine. She had a little girl just a few days after my son was born. I designed this particular name frame. I just started with punching the letters out with a flower punch and then went from there. I added glitter to the grass and I really like how that brings out the color. I just love pink and green together!

I added 4 tiny pearls to the butterfly's body, just for an extra touch:

Birthday Cards For My Nephews

Three of my nephews turned 2 on August 30. These are the cards I made for them.
For Joshua, the oldest of the three by about 4 and a half hours:
I LOVE this card. The little monkeys are so cute and I love how the tree turned out. This one is for Peter, the oldest of the twins: And here's Isaac's. I figured I'd stick with the monkeys for his card also:
