Wedding Card

I may have been absent from my planet for a long time, but that doesn't mean I wasn't doing some craft shopping.  Thanks to HSN for having those craft events where you can just sit on the couch with a little angel on your lap, cellphone in one hand... and the rest is history.  

So I got this die set by Crafter's Companion called Die'Sire Circle Swing Kinetic Dies.  I have to say it was actually easy to use.  Perfect for a wedding card I want to make for our nephew and soon to be niece-in-law.

Stamps:  Verve

Sentiment Stamp:  Verve

On a side note... I was very sad when I learned that Verve Stamps closed this year.  I am glad I have a good collection of their brand.

I guess it's not bad having two card projects before the year ends.  Hopefully next year will be more productive and exciting for Tinker Planet.  

I had an awesome 2018.... and 2019 will be double all that!

Wreath All My Love

I have to have a real wreath this year.  And just like before, I have to decorate it.  My favorite glue for this type of project is Fabri-Tac by Beacon.  I discovered it at the one and only CHA convention I attended in Anaheim a few years back.  Since then, I must always have this in stock.

For this wreath, I just added bling to it.  I actually like the effect... more like frozen water beads.  I didn't touch the bow that came with, as I don't have much time.  This wreath needs to hang before Christmas.

Christmas Card

My first love is singing.  My friends and family know it.  In fact, I didn't craft for over a year, but my singing with the band continued.  Even until my bump was about to burst.  I guess it only makes sense that my first craft project since my absentia from Tinker Planet was band related.

I was tasked to send Christmas cards to our clients this year.  And what a good reason to get rid of the rust from my hands.  But it has to be clean and simple, since it's my first craft project in a long time.

I looked for any music stamps I have in my catalog, and sure enough I found a good number of them.  We are a 5-piece band and luckily I have stamps for all five of us.

It sure feels great to work in my planet again... although there is no planet yet.  I hope our clients like it.
