how about some projects

Just thought I'd put these back!

First up, some bracelets I made that were published in Simply Handmade October / November 2010.

I was so excited when this idea came to me. I have made several more of these bracelets. I sell them on my etsy site and would love for you to check them out - I will even take special orders.

Here are a few cards using October Afternoon's Very Merry line...

Those were seen in Create: 2010 Christmas Cards Idea Book:

The next two layouts were seen in Scrapbook Trends November 2010:

Another card using the October Afternoon Very Merry line this time as seen in the Nov-December issue of Paper Crafts magazine.

Here are a few cards as seen in Cards - November 2010.

Last, as seen in Paper Creations magazine Winter 2010-

A little bit of rock and roll!

I need to go to a 12 step program for Cricut! Seriously, I am becoming way too dependent on my Cricut Expression and other Cricut products to help me create, but it's such fun!
So, I teamed up my Expression with my October Afternoon for a little bit or rock and roll...

This card was made with the Campfire line from October Afternoon and the Cricut Expression birthday bash cartridge...

Rock on card.

Next, I used the Cricut Expression birthday bash cart again to make this fun roller skate card shape! The papers and chipboard for this card are from October Afternoon's Modern Homemaker line...

Let the Good times roll card.

Also, be sure to check out the OA blog... there's info. there on a October Afternoon giveaway!

Have a great day, Charity

The Grands- punky sprout album

I just love this fun line from American Crafts called City Park! It's so happy and fun! I wanted to make a mini album for my mother in law's Birthday with photos of the kids. So, I grabbed my Punky Sprouts Junk in my Punk album and the City Park line and put together this simple album for her!

Here's how it came out:
