Update on prior posts

Yay! I am so happy to be able to reveal the pics of the sneak-peek. I previously posted a card for a special someone & a sneak peek of a project I had worked on and now that I know it arrived safe & well I can say the recipient was Laura from Alilscrapofheaven. We participated in a captured fairy swap and it was truly so much fun to do, I was genuinely excited to send something in the mail & make a new scrapping friend in the process. (Did I mention it was my first swap?)
It was an altered & multi-medium piece, and I think that what I enjoyed most about it was that I got to use several of my favorite things. I love to draw & paint, so I started by designing the fairy & painting her in watercolors. I also made her wings myself so that they would match perfectly. Then I used mod-podge, acrylics, bling, beads, pearls, lace, and paper to make the rest of the embellishments for the bottle. I also used the cricut to cut the big flowers on it.
The tag was my own design, and on it I added small flowers I hand-painted, as well as a felt bird and a butterfly on back.  I hope you like the pics!

Cricut Explore Air 2 Dreamcatcher Tutorial

Thank  you for joining me!
Today I was inspired to create a Dream catcher with existing shapes using my Cricut Explore Air 2. This was brought about after a Facebook post that got me thinking..."I can do that!"
I hope that you are also inspired to create your own. I have made a 2-part video series to show you how you can easily make your own version of dies that you love, but might not be easily accessible, or if you're anything like me, you want to be resourceful!
