time...


time to play,
time to create,
time to rediscover,
time to just have fun...right?

Well, although I am trying to take a few days off of crafting...I just couldn't last night.  I am trying very hard to keep myself out of the pantry and focused on other things to keep me busy.  After a day of cleaning, hangin' with the boys...it was just the obvious thing to do.  Not easy to cut out sugar and snacking without replacing it with something else...well, that is how I feel so far :)  As the days pass, and hopefully things will get a little easier, I will get back to that break.  Until then...
Spent some time last night working on a few digital invitations for a friend and looked over at my crafting area to find my Cricut Expression had been collecting a bit of dust.  So began sorting through paper, looking through my options and came up with this little set.
Supplies: Doodlecharms (Cricut Cartridge: ice cream, cupcake, jar), Crate Paper (paper), Heidi Swapp (paper), Pink Paislee (Prairie Hill papers), Lily Bee Design, Dear Lizzy American Crafts (vellum), Papertrey Ink (stamps), Fancy Pants (felt embellishments), My Mind's Eye (stamp), Prima (button), Prairie Bird Boutique (Etsy: wrinkle ribbon), Precious Remembrance (fabric tape), Studio Calico (tape), Epiphany Crafts (heart punch), Want2Scrap (pearls).
So check around your craft room and find something that hasn't been used in awhile and just go for it!  Wanted to also share a second project with you from Riddersholm Design, which is posted on the blog today.
A pocket full of vintage goodness.  For a complete list of supplies and amazing vintage project and products, head on over HERE.

P.S.  I had a question the other day regarding the cutting of felt.  I use a Provo Craft Cuttlebug for almost everything I do...love it!  To cut several layers of felt at one time I use the larger Sizzix dies.  For just one sheet of felt I use everything from Spellbinders, Papertrey Ink and Quickutz.  Hope this helps.
