Pinterest crafts!!

So I think I mentioned before that I joined Pinterest and was using it as a crutch to get me through the weeks (months) of no crafting. So I've been on it stockpiling cool craft ideas and with Valentine's Day coming up I decided to try a few. This first one if for my daughters' kindergarten classmates, I got the idea from little felt snowman ornaments. I made mine into pockets for a lollipop. I used buttons from my recent shopping trip as well as from my stash!

The second one looked really cool but the instructions were literally in Chinese (or Japanese, I'm not sure) So I just had to go off of the pictures and wing it. I will say the next time I do this I won't get such stiff felt, the red was a bit too stiff. I think both projects turned out pretty cute and I'm really happy with them! If you aren't on Pinterest you should check it out, if you are, look me up! I could always use more people and ideas to glean inspiration from!

Super Scrap Sunday...

A few years ago my girlfriends and I started a tradition of scrapping on Superbowl Sunday instead of watching the game. Well this year, even though we are all in different states, we decided to do it again. I had gone goodie shopping on saturday and found a great score on Valentines stuff for 30% off at Hobby Lobby,so using some of that and a LOT of my stash I was able to make 9 Valentine cards. I also had two more design team submission LO's I wanted to do and I managed to get those done as well. It was a pretty productive day all around!

The first LO is for a new sketch site called Let's Get Sketchy. I'm really excited about it and not only are they looking for a design team but also a sketch team! The DT call ends on the 13th so go check them out!

This next LO is for the design team call over at Creative Scrappers. Their call ends in 2 days so I'm glad I got this one done in time. I really like the sketch I chose to work with from them.

Here are the goodies I found during my shopping trip!

Here are 7 of the 9 cards (2 are for my friends and I don't want to show those yet!)
