CyberCrop Weekend

This has been a busy weekend of crafting. Over at the MTC forum, I participated in their first ever CyberCrop weekend. There were 10 Challenges and 9 Bonus Challenges. You had to do a separate project for each challenge. I was only able to get 7 out of the 10 Challenges completed. Hey but that is more crafting in a weekend than I think I have ever done. LOL!!!

See below for my projects.

Challenge #1 - Color Challenge. Use only the colors Purple and Turquoise (white/black could be used for any journaling).

Challenge #2 - Create a title in MTC with a graphic attached to the words.

Challenge #3 - Create a project using vinyl.

I did not get to Challenges #4 & #5.

Challenge #6 - Paper Piecing. Create a paper piecing piece using MTC.
(note: This is the little lamb from the Strawberry Shortcake series I shared.)

Challenge #7 - Create a project using an animal theme.

Challenge #8 - Use three flowers on your project.
(Made this Get Well Card)

I did not get to Challenge #9.

Challenge #10 - Use metal or embossing.
(I used my cuttlebug and nestability embossing dies
for this birthday card.)

Well, that was my first ever online crop and it was a lot of fun. I am looking forward to participating in many more. Want to join in on some of the fun, join us over at the Make the Cut forum.

Tip on working with Layers and small pieces

TIP: When working with files with lots of small pieces for layers.....after you have cut the section of the file that has lots of little pieces that look alike, leave the pieces on the mat.

Take the pieces off one at a time and glue them at that moment onto the background piece or where they are to be placed.

This way it makes it easier to place them exactly where they go and you don't have a lot of loose, little pieces all over your work area to try to remember later which piece goes where.

Hope this tip helped.

Happy Mother's Day Everyone

Hi Everyone, I hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day. I sure did. My family is so thoughtful.

My daughter Brittney and her boyfriend Miles brought me these balloons, an Edible Fruits basket arrangement and a teddy bear from Edible Fruits.

My husband brought me this bouquet of flowers and cooked dinner for me. Yum, Yum!!! He did a really good job.

My son Tommy and his girlfriend Meya got me these balloons, picture, card and flowers for Mother's Day.

I hope you had just as nice a Mother's Day as I did. This was an awesome day!!
Have a great week!

Things to make for a Tea Party

Saturday, May 1st I helped with putting together a Mother-Daughter Tea Party for our Girl Scout District. We had 92 participants. One of the my duties was to create the teabag holders and a Bingo game. I spent all of last week cutting and putting these together for each participant. You can see the pictures below to see what I came up with.

Teabag Holder. I used pastel cardstock, ribbon, Glue Dots (the strips), and teabags. I cut the file from my .mtc file and then scored on the score marks. Actually I used the first scored one for a guideline, then removed the scorelines on my mtc file to cut the rest and just measured with my Scor-Pal and scored the lines - much neater. Then adhered the teabag to the back section at the top of the teabag with a Glue Dot strip . Then used a 3/16 inch punch to punch two holes at the top above the scalloped edge and added ribbon. Then added another Glue Dot strip along the top section of the panel with the cutouts, to close/seal the holder.

Teapot Bingo Cards

Teacup Bingo Cards

For these Bingo Cards, I used the same matching pastel cardstock. And cut the teapot and teacup from my .mtc file. I then created the Bingo Cards in Excel and changed the heading from B-I-N-G-O to I-(heart)-T-E-A.

This Excel Bingo Card file can actually be used for
any type of party where a Bingo game is needed.

The Excel Bingo Card file has three tabs to click on. The first tab is the callers sheet. There are two call sheets on it. I printed this out on white cardstock to make it sturdy. One of the call sheets, I cut all of the squares so that those would be my Bingo numbers to call out. The second tab has 80 different Bingo Cards. The third tab has a few extras.

***If you download this file for use, you can change the "Bingo" title to whatever the theme of your party is and change the "graphic" in the Free Space to the theme of your party.
Hope you find these files useful.
