A Date with Crafty Folks

Hey Folks!

For today's welcome back entry (it has been about a month, I think?) I figured I would showcase some cards my friends made on a recent craft date we had. Then I would segway into some great giveaways, sales and notifications from other blogs I've seen.

First off, my friend Jenn is the only real life friend I have who owns a Cricut and enjoys crafting. We met in college and like me, this new crafting hobby has been very recent for her. Its so nice to have someone to talk to about cartridges and card stock! She proposed a date at her house and along with my best friend Steve, as well as every piece of conceivable crafting supplies you could want, we were ready for some creative fun. Pardon the pictures, my iPhone isn't the best at times.

Steve was a fan of the ATG gun.
Jenn wanted to make some anniversary cards for our friend Danielle and after his own metal projects were done, Steve picked up a stamp and started on his own cards.

Happy Birthday, Lisa!




For Steve's card, he took some musical cardstock to start his birthday card for his sister, Lisa. She is an aspiring music teacher so he thought this would be appropriate.

Jenn's card incorporated the Sweethearts cartridge to make quite the lovely silhouette.


I ended up making a card too, but that will be for another post!

Now, onto some blog fun!

Have you seen Amy's new blog design at Scrap This, Save That? It's very colorful, clean and bubbly! Her daughter in law actually made it for her and she is actually offering blog design services for some great prices! All the money is going towards an adoption process that she and her husband are undergoing so its for a great cause!!
