Gnombie Family Fun

Wow! so many things have changed since my last post to this blog! Corona Virus hit, Alison got laid off her job, then was called by her previous employer and ever so happy to return! An anticipated move to the south fell through for Matt. Ashton Graduated URI  Ph.D in hand and all other life plans are on the back burner button :( I'm trying to involve as many crafts as possible and enjoy the Hot Summer here in New England.

Here are a few fun recent plays with Cricut printed Gnombies(which I LOVE) and colored with my Copics then sprayed with Huey Canyon and Huey Gold sprays

Finnegan Tails

I finally settled on this layout of Finnegan"Finn".  I've been trying to use up some kits,unfinished or extras from CKC's in the past.  I think these papers were to be a Disney related page,but perfect for my Finn!   I used some vinyl to do the name tag and printed a saying off a cricut cartridge too :) oh, and a bone charm I found!

confetti flinger

I made this quick card for my sister and her hubbie. I just had to try my confetti flinger die and YUP! it WORKS!

A Card for Mom

A Yummy Valentine card for my Mom. I put the candy heart on a removable dot which is on top of a paper heart, so the card will still be complete :)

Ribbon from stash Reasonable Ribbon

Decor for a 1st Birthday

I was asked to make some 1st Birthday Party decorations :)  I am pleased with the turn out and am hoping the recipient is as well!

I used  Cricut Design Space, Bazzill Cardstock, Cotton Polka Dot Fabric with added Heat N Bond,Glitter Foam, Glitter and Shimmer Cardstocks, Mini clothespins for the picture attachment, Ribbons from Michaels and my stash of Reasonable Ribbon.

I used long thin skewers that could be cut to needed length and a few longer pop sticks. The #1 is on a very thing dowel I painted white which can also be cut to needed length. I added more ribbon bows and extra strands that could be used in between the months or at the ends to hide attachment if wanted. I'm hoping Jill will send me a few pictures of how she uses the decor! Happy Birthday Addison!
thanks for looking :)
