Fun Project

We celebrated a good friend's 40th b'day tonight. He loves guitars/music so we threw him a surprise b'day dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe. I helped set everything up and decided to make a centerpiece for the table. I used my Wishblade! I was so excited. I found this guitar file from It is the free "guitar hero" file. I only used the guitar part of the file. You see the full guitar in the centerpiece and only the outline to make the guitars that are glued on the can (which is a formula can, without the label it was already silver and worked perfectly). I made the guitar amplifier myself. I used Crayola's stardust sticker paper that you can print on for the label that is supposed to look like the metal screen. My dh said it didn't look like an amp at all but once our friend looked at the centerpiece he said "look, there's even an amp". So haha! The guitar picks were part of the party favors, I used the extras. I'm very happy with how it turned out.

Card for Mom

I made this card for my mom using the SU rubons again. I have really had fun with these lately. The card/envie was from the clearance wall at Hobby Lobby. And of course I added the bling and did some outlining with a new pen, I think it's called Stardust. It glides on like paint, I love that pen! Anyway, I wish I hadn't put the stem flower in the middle of happy day but it'll do. Mom will love it no matter! :)

Make and Takes

Visit my friend Jennifer's blog to see the Archiver's make and takes. I did the circle card, journal block and mini album as well-piggy backing on her post b/c she already has all of the photos uploaded, hehe! :)

Other than this and the card I just posted, I haven't done a whole lot of crafting, time to myself is at an all time low right now. But, I printed a ton of pics recently and am organizing them for my scrapbook. At least I'm getting something accomplished!

Like Butta

Inside of card:
So after using the Basic Grey rubon roller at the last Archiver's make and take, I bought one and have fallen in love with it, it glides so easily! I used it for this card, which is for my BFF's birthday and it was so quick and easy-no popsicle stick hand cramps or stresses in the paper. It was awesome! Everyone really needs one of these things. And, I also used a little adhesive/rubon eraser that I really liked. I have the square adhesive eraser but haven't liked it lately. I found this other one on sale and thought I'd try it and really like it, but I don't know who makes it, it's a little green stump. Anyway, the pink passion paper and rubons are SU. I used pieces of several different rubons to fill the front of the card, it was fun. And of course, what card is finished without Stickles and bling?! :)
