Punch Art Bunny Number 2

I'm back to share another quick and easy punch art project. The punch art bunny I am demonstrating today would be a great embellishment for an Easter treat bag or gift tag and it's easy enough to mass produce quickly. I love the fact that it can be made with a very small amount of card stock. Dig out your circle and oval punches and give this project a try. This little bunny is sure to make you smile!

Candy Bar Treat Box

Today I am sharing instructions for making a "Candy Bar Treat Box." This was the table favor we used on the second day of Scrap-fest. It is made from a 6 x 6 inch piece of card stock and it can hold a standard size candy bar (I used a Snickers Bar.) To make it you will need an envelope punch board, a strong adhesive, a paper trimmer and a pair of scissors. You can embellish it however you like.  If you've been looking for a unique way to use your envelope punch board, give this project at try.  I think it is really cute!

Camera Card & Matching Envelope

If your are following my blog you must be totally confused. First I disappear for almost an entire year and now I am posting twice in the same day. I'm just trying to share some of the Scrap-Fest projects with you so don't expect me to keep up this pace.

The project I'm sharing now is a cute "Camera Card & Matching Envelope." It is made with the envelope punch board and it goes together super quick. I rummaged through my sentiment stamps and found some that go with the theme. "Oh Snap!" is my favorite! My son says that all the time so it just makes me smile to have an excuse to use that stamp.

Hope you enjoy this project.

Carrot Treat Holder

Scrap-fest opened tonight with a Pinterest party. Guests were asked to bring a card, scrapbook page or 3D project they made after being inspired by Pinterest (or just about any other source) and we provided yummy snacks that were also inspired by Pinterest. The projects were really awesome and I had a great time!

I have so many projects to share with my friends that it's hard to pick my favorite but I can't wait to show them the "Carrot Treat Holder." It's another quick and easy project that uses minimal paper supplies. If you have a paper crimper and fringing scissors you can use them for this project but they are NOT required. Check out my video tutorial for the whole scoop.

Oh my goodness! I have had so much fun making this adorable little punch art bunny. He would look darling on an Easter card, scrapbook page or even a baby card and he's really quite simple to make. Check out my video tutorial for complete step by step instructions.

Sneak Peek!

Scrap-fest Starts tomorrow so I am busy getting all my things ready to go. I don't have to travel far but it's embarrassing to be in the middle of a demonstration and realize you left your tools at home. Packing is definitely the hardest part!

Since I have so much to do tonight, I though I'd share a sneak peak. This is a little hinged lid treat box similar to one that all our Scrap-Fest guests will receive along with a video tutorial which gives step by step instructions for making one yourself. It is a really easy project that can be adapted for just about any occasion. Give it a try and let me know what you think.

Thanks for stopping by.

Back after a very long break!

If you have been patiently waiting for me to post new projects to my blog then you will be happy to know that several new things will be posted in the next couple of days.

My life has been in a bit of a tail spin over the last year. Both of my sons have finished college and flown the coop. They each took jobs which required then to move to the other side of the country. My youngest son has married and my oldest son is engaged to be married. My job responsibilities have increased a bit and I have traveled several times. With so many things going on in my life, I simply didn't make the time to blog. Well, now I'm back and I will make a real effort to post more regularly.

Beginning on Friday, I will start posting projects from our fall Scrap-Fest. This two day scrapbooking event is a fundraiser for our local sports stadium. We hold Scrap-Fest events in the fall and spring of each year so if you are ever near West Virginia you can contact me for more information about these events. During Scrap-Fest I demonstrate all kinds of paper crafting projects (cards, punch art, 3-D projects and scrapbook pages.) The guests each receive written project instructions and links to video tutorials so they can go back to see things they might have missed during the live demos. The projects I will be posting over the next week are all from Scrap-Fest. Hope you come back soon to check out what you missed.
