I've Been Busy Playing Again...

This is what happens when you raid your kid's craft supplies. Felt and Fimo, look out! I have plans for you! I have been perusing through etsy and have been inspired by all the adorable hand crafted embellishments for our layouts and thought I'd give it a try and see what I could come up with. First I played with Fimo. Trying to find some that had not been smushed together with other colours by my daughter was a real challenge, but I manage to squeak out a few cute little buttons. Hubby's itsy bitsy cookie cutters for his culinary displays came in super handy too!

I was much happier with this second batch. The second photo is of the first batch.

Then I felt like sewing and pulled out my Big Shot and played with some felt and came up with these:

Kerry also makes these adorable little Christmas ornaments made from coasters for her craft fairs. I used my Stampin Up DSP for these ones:

And of course I had to do a layout so I finished this one I started at Sunday's crop. Thanks Jo and Hayley for your advice. I'm happy with how it turned out :)

Well, that's all folks. Today I think I'm going to try Ally's latest sketch over at So Sketchy. Thanks for stoppin by!
