Well, as you can tell by the title of this post, it is officially national craft month. Throughout the month I will be sharing some of the projects I have been working on, and hopefully ones I am finished with. I'm starting it off by posting a few crafts for kids that I've completed in the past few weeks. First is the most adorable felt storyboard with a Lorax theme. I made this one for my nephew, but I bought plenty of felt to make a few for nursery as well, although I haven't figured out what I'm going to do for those yet. I found the idea on Mod Podge Rocks, but modified it since I didn't want to use an embroidery hoop and didn't like how she made the truffala trees. I meant to have it on a clip board, but completely forgot to send one. It can really be used anywhere though.
Next are the darling matching brother shirts I made for my two nephews. I used my Silhouette to cut out a stencil that I painted onto. In case you are wondering I used the fonts LW Friendly and LW Sans, both found in the Silhouette store. One of these days I'll write up a tutorial on how to make these. They can be made without using a silhouette too, it will just take a little time to cut out the stencils.
Last, but not least, it the baby book for my newest nephew that I fianlly finished a few weeks ago. It's so so so perfect! Definetely my favorite baby book so far, but that could have been since I had the Silhouette to make cutting out letters easier. I was especially excited about the shape in the last picture. Normally, buying those shapes already made is expensive, usually 4 in a pack for 6.99. But this shape on the Silhouette store cost me .99 and I can use it unlimited times and make it as big or small as a want (as long as it isn't wider than the machine). How cool is that?!
I don't want to upload too many pictures to this blog since I uploaded them all on Scrapetite. So if you want to see them all, then go here to view them:
I'm pretty excited to be finishing so many craft projects this month, especially ones that I've been working on for a few months, or even years (our king quilt). What perfect timing that they're all coming together during National Craft Month!
