Paper Airplanes.

Posted by Michelle on February 3rd, 2015

This was posted over on the Hazel & Ruby blog a couple of weeks ago.

We’re kickin’ it old-school today with paper airplanes!


My 12 year-old son got a paper airplane kit for Christmas and it came with pre-cut patterned papers to make the airplanes out of.  We decided to make some to hang in his room, and use Hazel & Ruby’s Maps of the World Wrap It Up paper as he’s got this world and sun/moon/stars mash up theme goin’ on in there.


With adult supervision while he was using my paper cutter, he did everything himself from start to finish.




Once he had his airplanes made, he used a little piece of gray washi tape from Hazel & Ruby’s Polka Dot Party set to adhere some cord.


And then he just climbed up on a chair and hung them in his room.


Crafty, kept him busy, got him thinking, and he added some decor to his room on the quick, cheap and easy!



And still more Valentines.

Target is my one-stop shop.  And it’s right across the street from my subdivision.  Fun red, pink, and gold candy; and journals and notepads.

I’ve been working on Valentines for the last couple of weeks.  But over the past couple of months I have been doing a lot of purging of my craft supplies and when it came time to work on Valentines, I found that I don’t have anything really Valentine specific.  So I worked it out with Valentiney colors, book print, and punches.

I started with confetti made from vintage book print – Little Women.

Pre-made red doilies, sequins from Hazel & Ruby, punched some gold hearts from Fancy Pants’ metallic gold paper, and punched some small paper hearts from some old My Mind’s Eye paper.

Stamped Hello Love in gold ink – stamp from Inspire Lovely’s ETSY shoppe; and the tag is from there too.

All packaged up in a little brown sack from Fancy Pants, topped with a clothes pin, and a wood heart from American Crafts.

Leaves and hearts punched from Fancy Pants’ metallic paper, little hearts from Fancy Pants’ vellum paper, vintage book print confetti, and Hazel & Ruby sequins.

Cupcards To Go – January Kit.

Posted by Michelle on January 13th, 2015

Valentine’s is just a month away, so if you haven’t started on your cards and pretty packages, here’s your 31 day warning.
I’ve got some Valentine cards to share with you today using this month’s Cupcards To Go set which went on sale yesterday.  There are some sweet vintage bits in this kit, as well as some traditional Valentine pieces.  You’re going to love it!  You can read more about it HERE.







I love that ^^^ sticker with the piece from 1 Corinthians 13:4-13: 
4 Love is patient, love is kind.  It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  5 It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.  8 Love never fails.  But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.  9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part,  10 but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears.  11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me.  12 Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face.  Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.  13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love.  But the greatest of these is love. 
We had this read at our wedding almost 19 years ago, and I love seeing it and hearing it, and being reminded that at the end of the day all that matters is love.
