Family Portrait - 2018 Flour Baby Project

The 2018 flour baby project has begun! My freshman class of 15 left my classroom on Friday with flour baby in hand to set off on a week's adventure as parent and child. Things were not looking real good at the end of class on Thursday for the babies to go out in to the world looking like anything more than a flour bag. Well, I have got to hand it to my students! They rallied around one another to help sew limbs and heads, stuff the pieces and hot glue them to the flour sack. Even the wiggle eyes, pacifiers and curly hair was attached by the time most left the classroom. Phew!

Here they are... The 2018 Flour Babies


I enjoy going through this process with my class. They hate the nightly check ins, but I think we all come away from this project with a few laughs and good memories.

Enjoy!

Craft With Heart - October 2018 Layout 2

Back again Crafters...

I have completed the second layout from the Close To My Heart, Craft With Heart October subscription layouts. I stepped up the design of this layout quite a bit. I wanted there to be more interest to the background. So, I created my own background patterned paper with a stamp set and exclusive inks. I also brought in a bit more of the dark blue color with some retired Outdoor Denim cardstock.

I hope you are enjoying my series on the subscription layouts. I hope to spark some interest for you to give it a try. These kits make it easy and fun to get some scrapbook layouts completed among the busyness of our lives.

Let me know if you have any questions. Please visit my independent consultant website for more details about the Craft With Heart subscription choices.

Here is the sample from the Cut Above Layout Kit, Homegrown:


My layout with background stamping, edge distressing and Nuvo Drops added for interest





Enjoy!

Craft With Heart - October 2018 Layout 1

Hi Paper Crafters,

I find it hard to believe that it is already time for me to share another month's layout from the Craft With Heart from Close To My Heart! The layouts for October are from the Cut Above Layout Kit, Homgrown. Once again, I will share the original design from the kit and then share my embellished layout.


My Layout using stamp sets, inks and Nuvo Drops to embellish.


I will be adding family portraits we had taken last weekend. We are celebrating the first autumn my son will be married and the impending adoption of his step-son.

If you would like more details about Close To My Heart's, Craft With Heart subscription, please visit my independent consultant website and consider joining in on the fun.

Enjoy!
