Easter Grass

 This card was made with stamps and dies from "Stamps of Life".  The crepe paper grass tutorial is below.
                               The paper fringe on this card is from Melissa Frances.
 The crepe paper Easter grass was made with crepe paper from Melissa Frances and the scissors from Martha Stewart.  The fringe scissors cut the crepe paper perfectly.  For the card above, I did dye the crepe paper a little darker green with Tattered Angels glimmer mist.

Red Envelope Recipe Book

Here is the other envelope book I made.  This sat on my counter for weeks.  I finally put it in the store Changing Thymes Saturday afternoon.  It sold that same afternoon.  I need to make another one!

Mom's Diner Recipe Book

I started with some envelopes and my bind-it-all....

I bound the envelopes and decorated them....









The paper, stickers and recipe cards came from this kit.  I found this at Hobby Lobby.  Next time I'll post the recipe book using the red envelopes.

Bingo Note Pads

I finally got out my Bind-It-All and blew the dust off it.  I saw this idea on Pinterest and thought it was cute.  I found a huge bag of old bingo cards last summer at a garage sale.  They were damp and musty smelling.  They must have been in an old basement for a while.  I aired them out and put them in a bag with a fabric sheet for a while.

I thought I would make these for the members on my reading committee at school.  I always feel guilty having meetings since we are all so busy.  We will be planning for our schools reading month in March this week, so I made these as a "thank you" to them for participating.  I hope they like them!





I made the red letters on the Cricut and then added extra fine red glitter (from Martha Stewart).
