Patriotic Pride Scrappy Moms Stamps Challenge

Aren't these 4th of July cutouts so cute.  I made a similar banner for a friend last year and had to make it for us.  I can not for the life of me find the web site. That offered the free banner print out.  It is printed at 9.5" wide.  The Real Red from Stampin Up is punched out with an EKsuccess punch.  I topped the banner with the God Bless America paper from Paper Studio.  The blue bandanna paper is also from Paper Studio.  The rosettes are 2-12" strip cut at 2' wide.  I used my Martha circle cutter to cut a 3 1/2" Real Red and 3 1/4" with the white.  I used Cricut Ashlyn's Alphabet to cut the letter at 3".  It is hanging by small clothes pins painted with Midnight blue paint on twine.  LOVE.  The hat is cut out of Real Read at 10", the firecracker is 4 1/4" wide and the Freedom is 3 3/4" tall.  Thank you so much for stopping by.  Check out the video for the banner at my Youtube Channel, CrazedCrafter.  Hugs Robbin

Jim & JoAnn's 50th Anniversary Guestbook

Here are a few pictures of the Guestbook/Scrapbook I made for My In-laws 50th Anniversary party.  They loved it and the party was fabulous.  The small picture on the cover of the book is their hands.  I added a 3-D flower from Pro 31 Designs.  The trim on the cover is beautiful.  The bottom layer is from Hobby Lobby, the top trim is from the Internet along with the cameo & penny farthing bike and the pearls below that are Paper Studio. The picture of them together is all My Mind's Eye paper.  I just added a few butterflies and a piece of fence from  In the wedding dress page I topped it with Prima pearls. The bottom white ruffled trim is from Hobby Lobby, topped with a flower pearl trim.  The bottom lace trim is from along with the buckle slides.  I am not sure what brand the stamp is but perfect.  The last page is Theresa Collins paper.  It is perfect with black and white picture.  I used her cut out that says Believe in Love. That is perfect for this picture.  Thanks so much for stopping by,  Hugs Robbin

Quilt Wall Hanging w/Family Bday

 I have made many beautiful items for lots of people.  Well it was time I made something to hang in our home.  This is the a one of a kind.  Since we are all addicted to  I have looked at many really neat items with anniversary and birth dates.  This is what I came up with for us.  The wedding ring quilt is my favorite of all the quilts.  My girlfriend Theresa came over and helped me with this.  It took us about 2 hours to get all the cuts right.  The circles we cut out on the Cricut and used George Basic cartridge. The outside circle was cut at 8 1/2" and the inside was cut at 7 1/2". The papers are from Paper Studio and My Mind's Eye. I wanted to use a guy and girly paper.  I bought the background paper in the art section at Hobby Lobby and it is acid free.  I used Tim Holtz distress inks to distress the background paper.  The 4 other pattern papers are from several My Mind's Eye collections.  I already had the frame.  I painted the frame and inside of the back of the frame with a light brown.  I cut Dietrich out with Winter Wonderland about 2" and used reposition able adhesive to attach it to the background. Then added crackle, let that dry and used Burnt Umber to paint over.  I missed some spots or it wouldn't crackle in some spots so I distressed it myself. I cut the center piece from Elegant Edges at 3" and not sure which piece I used.   I have terrible handwriting so I called a friend Julie to come write the dates for me.   What a super great piece.  I was really excited about it.  Thanks Hugs Robbin
