The Best Item Found In my Stash!

Hey Crafty Peeps, 

Every Monday night, my crafty group and I get together over at DanYellScraps & Friends Facebook group, to play a fun game. The game we play is called "the Wheel of Mystery". A very bright and funny lady on Facebook originated this idea and whom I adapted the it from. She hosts a live game show on Friday nights called Craft Roulette. The roulette wheel filled with numbers, that coincide with 4 different sets of parameters. I loved this so much I brought this concept to my group... and boy are we having a blast with it. 

This week my guest crafter and fellow group member was Belinda! We spun the wheel (app on my phone) 4 times, one for each of our parameters: 
Card: Window
Colors: Peacock, Ballerina, and Pomegranate
Embellishment: Wooden Shape
Chance: Pumpkin 

This was going great until a pumpkin was tossed in there, especially with the colors that popped up. I leave the parameters up for interpretation, this truly allows the creativity to pour through. So perhaps instead of a traditional window card, the person may use a stamp or die cut of  a Window. Perhaps they make a black and white card and use the colors as splash instead of a the focal point. Or maybe they use the word pumpkin instead of an actual image. 

 


Here is the card that I made, and bonus, I found a package of adhesive springs. CTMH use to sells these WAY BACK when....and it was the Best Item Found In my Stash! To use this and make it super fun for the recipient, twist the spring (gently) tuck it in the envelope.  When it pulled out the spring releases sending the Sentiment to move back and forth! How fun! 



Check out the cute wooden button, I adhere that with some Tombow Mono Liquid Glue over top of my twine knot. I love the frayed ends of the twine. I added some diamond stickles to the wooden button, because who does not love sparkle!!!!

I know your saying, um where is the pumpkin, whelp it is tone on tone stamping, and added to the back of the card! It was the best I could think of for on the Fly Crafting! 

I am excited to see what my group members make with these fun parameters!

I hope I have encouraged you to get crafty!

Creatively use scraps!

Hello Crafty Friends,

Time to get creative with our scraps.
Fridays's challenge in my private Facebook group DanYellScraps & Friends, is a two part! 

✂️ I am challenging them to use their thin cuts or cricut cuts creatively using only their scraps. The entire plan is to create 31 pieces if art. This could be pages, cards, 3D projects or a combo for the month of January. 
All that being said, I never pressue my crafty friends to do it all. I encourage them to get crafty as often as they can. Bookmark each project that speaks to them and complete them as their crafty schedule allows. ;)

⬇️ if you're looking for a no pressure place to get crafty with ideas and friends come join my group! I am a CTMH Maker (formally known as consultants),  this group is reserved for those that are not CTMH makers and live in the U.S. 

I love this shot, you can see the beautiful clear shimmer on the shaker frame! 

I hope you have been inspired to get crafty!!! 

Happy crafting 💖
