What a surprise it was that Miss Emma herself invited me to be a Guest Designer on her Throwback Thursday Challenge !!!! OMG, I feel so honored !!! And best of all, I had so much fun making this card !! I found the colors and theme of this pattern paper to be so happy, crafty and girlie that I decided they would be the perfect match for Emma's beautiful stamps and the font style used in my set.
Happy Saturday, everyone !!!! My oldest daughter is always bugging me for kitchen magnets, because they don't only hold important (and not so important) notes and papers, but they are also toys for my grandson. He can spend lots of time playing with the magnets on the refrigerator.
So, for my project today I will show you the magnets I made and the box I made for storing them. My daughter is going to be one happy camper ! :)
No matter where we are, at work, vacation, college, or shopping we always want to go back to that one special place where we feel the most comfortable and where we can be ourselves: HOME !!!! I think of my two children who are in the Military, and how they dream of being home... also, my daughter Diana who is away at college, cannot wait for the weekends to be home. Even one of my sons, who travels every day to a nearby town to go to college, expresses a sigh of relief when he finally gets home at night. Everyone wants to get away and come back to the warmth of the place we call home.
My project today has a simple home, with the clothes drying on a clothes line and a tree with flowers and birds chirping; behind is the big building skyline.
HI ! And welcome to KinderStampO's "Home is Where the Heart is" Blog Hop sponsored by Unity Stamp Co. If you have arrived here from Angie at http://angiesscrappinspot.blogspot.com/
then you are in the right place. If you just stopped by to say hi but decided to join the hop, then start from the beginning by clicking here.
Now, with no further ado, I present to you my project !!!!
I made a wreath with the word CASA (which means HOME in english). Being as crafty as I am, I made a wreath in which the word "CASA" is covered with miniature items of what you will commonly see when entering my home. Those would be (but not limited to): paper crafting materials, cooking and baking (and eating) utensils, sewing and, cleaning items(which are the less used LOL).
Here are some of the items I incorporated to my wreath.
The hearts were cut on chipboard and covered with fabric.
The wooden spools were covered with embroidery floss.
The plate,silverware and cupcake were painted with acrylic paint.
I filled the basket with tiny cuts of cardstock.
I made a bouquet of tiny flowers that were inserted in styrofoam (already in the flower pot).
The wood letters: C-A-S-A were painted in blue.
A piece of balsa wood was covered with burlap.
The letters were glued to the finished burlap piece.
Embellish letters and wreath as you wish. I used a hot glue gun to add the embellishments.
I hope that you have enjoyed my project and felt inspired. It is time to hop on to the next blog and see what she has made. You will now be stoppping by Christi at - http://alteredambitions.blogspot.com/

I always bake a cake for my children for their birthdays. My son Brandon's birthday is next Tuesday, March 15th. As you can recall, I had mentioned that he is now in the ARMY and this year, he will not have my home made cake. So, I thought I would make a card using my fabulous..... out of this world, Imagine machine, with a "mom" holding a B-day cake. I hope he loves it !!!
With this tri-fold card, I try to re-create the surprise of my son opening the door, and seeing ME with a surprise cake and party.
I loved the pattern images in one of the cartridges, but wanted to use the shape on a different one. EASY solution: I used the cache pattern feature on my machine. I will show you how !!!
Yummy: brown and balloon pattern , mom holding cake, pennants
